    aj_vader reacted to Manakin Skywalker in The Phantom Menace vs. Attack of the Clones vs. Revenge of the Sith   
    Not sure of the appropriate thread to put this in, but I was reading through an article in Mix magazine from 1999 that @enderdrag64 shared with me, in which Shawn Murphy revealed that they were thinking about recording AOTC in a concert hall instead of Abbey Road. I'd never heard that before, thought it was interesting.

    It's here, and the Bluray is of course video!

    I'm not remotely worried. 5000 is a lot of units, particularly for a score that has more historical value than mainstream appeal than most Williams releases. Plus LLL is awesome at telling us when titles are about to go OOP.

    I interpreted Mike's comment as another Williams coming out very soon, and at least one probably after that before the end of the year, potentially multiple. The next person to complain that not enough Williams expansions are happening is going to be locked in a room with Zimmer playing on a loop as punishment.

    David Newman is a big fan of Williams' Accidental Tourist and he said on a podcast/interview that he'd love to do a Live To Projection version, maybe David has asked/begged Williams to do an Accidental Tourist suite for concert?

    Williams has performed a concert suite from it many times.  I doubt it is this, unless Williams did something really different with it.

    Michael Abels has done an absolutely fantastic job with the music for the Acolyte. 
    I say this with utter sincerity. I rarely post here but I want to speak up about this. He gets closer to the magic of John Williams than anyone else.  I am so pleased with his work.  
    I cannot understate my opinion on this.  What a pleasant surprise.

    aj_vader reacted to artguy360 in Holdo's theme from TLJ deserves more   
    I just came across this simple edit on YouTube playing Holdo's theme when she and Leia say goodbye to each other and the big climatic Holdo's Resolve music. This reoccurring motif popped up unexpectedly for me as I watched TLJ for the first time, and I instantly wanted more of this little gem. 
     
     
    Unfortunately, I think the theme is very poorly represented in the OST although the big moment is edited into the end credits. From the way the motif is scored in the film, it kind of is the major musical propulsion for that whole middle segment of TLJ. I almost wish Holdo's Theme got the full concert arrangement treatment or at least better presentation on the OST. What do you, dearest JWfan reader, think?

    You could hear his internal monologue screaming “NOOOOOO!” when they were talking about going to say hi to him at the golf course.

    aj_vader reacted to Andy in John Williams is the next guest on the Smartless podcast   
    What surprised me was my reaction to the subject that I didn’t think would interest me: Golf.  When Maestro spoke of it as a solitary and meditative act for himself to take a brain break and move a little… something about it made me legit choke up.  This Godlike being, humanized in a way in which we rarely hear him speak.  Not the Composer, not the Legend, but the man. This was authentic John.   I conjured in my head an image of him enjoying this simple peaceful pleasure in and it struck me emotionally.  

    That part was good.

    aj_vader reacted to Mr. Hooper in NEW! THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS - World Premiere Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - La-La Land Records   
    Although Williams’ score never received a prior album release, the 50th anniversary of his historic partnership with Spielberg, along with a revisitation of the film for Universal Studios’ new 4K restoration, yielded the proper conditions to at last create an original soundtrack

     
    2027, Mike! We're counting on you!

    I'm still not convinced it is William's holding them back or Disney/Lucasfilm, but Mike Matessino wanting to get any and all MIA materials so everything can be the best quality possible and make them the definitive version.

    The original film is brilliant with live score. The 2018 performance at Royal Albert Hall with LSO playing it was one of my very favourite concert experiences ever. 😀
