    Stumbled upon these two 7' releases mentioned in another Star Wars video group I am in. I don't think they have been posted yet. If they have, please forgive if double posted.

    There's two ways to fix that...
     

     
    The second one keeps the placement consistent, the first one harkens back to the original cover and is more visualy pleasing.

    You know what's funny, when I first told Mike how amazing I thought it sounded, he was very modest and tried to downplay that he had done much.  I'm glad you all agree with me that it sounds way better!

    I'm glad Williams was a proponent of running analog tapes as the industry was transitioning into the digital age.  Some scores weren't as lucky and are locked forever at non-optimal bit rates.  Like Back To The Future 2 I believe is something like 24/48 or 24/44.1, even the Lord of the Rings scores are locked forever at 24/48.
     
    Every time any HP1 music appeared any where else, commercials, theme parks, etc, it was always those 2001 44.1khz masters until Mike finally made high res versions available as a result of the LLL set.
     
    For reference any score recorded these days is recorded at either 24bit or 32bit, and either 96khz, 192khz, or even 384khz!

    While the main liner notes are by Jeff Bond, there is a "technical note" page written by Mike that explains the process
     
    Like Harry Potter 1, the score was recorded simultaneously to digital and analog, but the digital was only at 44.1khz.  So also like Harry Potter 1, he had the analog tapes pulled and used fresh transfers of those.  Everything is sourced from that, all performance edits re-created by him, all sequenced and mastered by him in 24/192.

    Hey All, 
     
    I'm new here, but this seemed like an appropriate place to put this up for criticism or just your own pleasure. I took the time (4 and a half days) to transcribe and mockup John Williams' "The Mine Car Chase" from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. I'm sure many of you are familiar with it.

    That_Bloke reacted to Jay in Black Sunday is here!   
    It's not a Spotify thing, they released it digitally on all the platforms
     
     
     
    FSM only ever had a license to release the score on the CD format, as is the typical process for almost every film studio back catalog specialty label release
     
    Mondo got a license to release it on vinyl and released that on LP in 2015: https://mondotees.com/blogs/news/18712535-black-sunday-original-motion-picture-soundtrack-2xlp
     
    Then LLL struck that deal with Paramount in 2016 to begin putting their scores up for sale digitally and included Black Sunday in the launch batch.  Some additional info about that here:

    I thought MV had actually recently posted an update about this digital deal with Paramount, but I can't seem to find it now.....

    For me honestly, these new expansions of scores always makes me re-evaluate them, and I always end up loving the scores more than I did before.  As much as I've loved JW's music most of my life, there's still a bunch of his older works that I, for whatever reason, didn't ever make part of my recurring listening routine.  But then the expansions came out, for scores like The Cowboys, Stanley & Iris, Dracula... and now they are absolutely part of my regular listening rotation, and I can't believe I didn't listen to them more before.

    Minority Report falls into the same category!  I actually listened to that OST a lot more than the other 3 I mentioned, mostly because it came out when I was going to movies and listening to new scores, not some older score from before I was born like the others.  But after an initial burst of excitement, I feel off.  Then the session leak came out, which re-interested me again for a while... but then I fell off again.  But now with finally a proper presentation in properly mastered sound, I finally *get* the score top to bottom, and listen to it regularly.
     
    Seeing the film again helped a lot, as I had forgotten most details about it after I initially saw it.  Seeing the emotions on-screen of Anderton and his wife grieving over the loss of Sean and how that experience ties into the entire story being told really help gel the whole score together, at least for me.
     
    It's also impressive to me that JW did this directly after Attack of the Clones and just before Harry Potter 2 and Catch Me If You Can.  What a fertile year!
