  1. It is a fantastic 3-track recording that is incredibly natural. Neil
  2. I can't believe people would call me an "idiot". Neil
  3. Go for the Living Stereos. I think only about 40 albums were released and the sound is a revelation. Neil
  4. Do you have an SA-CD player? The RCA Living Stereo SA-CDs are fantastic. They were the reason why I bought my player. They stopped releasing new titles () but the ones that are out are great and all are similarly priced. I recommend them highly. Neil
  5. Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony is the one to get. Fantastic sound, a great performance and a rock bottom price. Neil
  6. Yeah, the moment where Julianne Moore is on the glass window and it's cracking around her is great. The rest of the movie is entirely disposable. It's dreadful. Nell
  7. It was, Joe. It was a double feature of I Wanna Hold Your Hand and 1941. Bob Gale, Nancy Allen, Perry Lang and Wendie Jo Sperber's stunt double were there to talk between the films. I'd never seen I Wanna Hold Your Hand and I found it to be hysterical. I didn't know if 1941 would hold up after that, but it did. Neil
  8. Of all the Williams scored movies I've seen, Attack of the Clones is probably the worst 1941 is not great, but it's good. A screening I went to recently was very well received. Neil
  9. Douglas Slocombe with John Dykstra as his assistant. Because Dykstra would ultimately go on to work for ILM, many think ILM did the effects, which they didn't. Douglas Trumbull and John Dykstra did the effects in 1979. Dykstra worked for ILM on Star Wars and then branched off to form his own company, Apogee, which did the effects on TMP. Foundation Imaging did the effects for The Director's Edition. Neil
  10. The theatrical cut of Star Trek VI has never been issued on home video. Every release on video has included the "Colonel West" character and "Operation: Retrieve" as well as the discussion between Scotty, Spock and Valeris about the torpedoes. None of these scenes were in the theatrical version. The original cut of TMP doesn't interest me anymore. Neil
  11. To not like the music in TMP is to not like music at all. Neil
  12. Clearly you are someone who has not read the entire thread. Read this and then this. Neil
  13. SpaceCamp had an album and that film didn't do very well at the box office. Neil
  14. In comparison to Star Trek: The Motion Picture, I assume. There is no....hey, you set me up for that! Maybe it's residual burn out from last years onslaught of Indy stuff, but I was getting bored with the Raiders March last March when I saw Williams conduct it. I wasn't even into Raiders when I saw it last November with my sister back in NJ. All the hype and the new movie and then the box set have just left me with a less than great feeling about this movie and score. It's good, no doubt about that, but it's not Star Wars or Superman. Hearing them on XM the other night really drove home for me how much more I enjoy those scores as opposed to this one. Neil
  15. I have it on good authority that William Ross actually wrote Jaws. Neil
