  1. 2019: Monsignor (1982) [limited] SOLD OUT 2020: The River (1984) [limited] Less than 150 copies remaining!!
  2. I came across a documentary simply called MUSIC. Director Andrew Zuckerman has interviewed eminent musicians, composers, and producers from various musical genre. One of many interviewees in this documentary is our John Williams. Fittingly he has also the last words in the end of it. Besides John Williams you can see and hear Danny Elfman, Philip Glass, Burt Bacharach, Herbie Hancock, ... and several musicians from rock, pop, hip-hop, classical, country, jazz,...etc. https://andrewzuckerman.com/music/
  3. You are lucky, guys. I'm really interested in the videorecording. Is the quality of the video better than those clips on YouTube?
  4. Does anybody have the videorecording of this 1993 concert called A Salute to John Williams? http://www.jw-collection.de/films/jw_tribute.htm It seems that only salutes are available on YouTube: I hope the complete concert videorecording will be available someday in the best possible quality just like John Williams' inaugural Boston Pops 1980 concert
  5. CD Stanley & Iris (1990) / Pete N Tillie (1972) is sold out!
  6. Conditions for concert visit in Corona times https://www.berliner-philharmoniker.de/en/hygiene-rules/
  7. Berliner Philharmoniker playing music of John Williams at Waldb├╝hne on June 28, 2015: To my knowledge it was the single one recorded film music concert performed by the Berliner Philharmoniker. It was released on DVD and BluRay.
  8. Info from Roger Feigelson from January 2021: Well nothing is predictable, but we're hoping for more stuff by DeVol, Kamen, Goldsmith, Elfman, Williams, Goldsmith, Bernstein, Folk, Goldsmith, Poledouris, Zimmer. But who knows...things change rapidly! DeVol, Kamen and Goldsmith are already out, so the next one is Elfman and then ...(probably at the beginning of June) ... Willliams!!!
  9. I have the programme of 1998 concerts scanned:
  10. If the new version includes OST with improved sound and has another benefits as better cover, thick booklet full of information,..etc., (see 1941, Dracula, Earthquake, E.T., The Fury, Home Alone, Jaws, Jaws 2, The River, Rosewood, Superman, War of the Worlds, etc.), so there is no logical reason to keep the previous version. I will probably never listen to it again. It will collect dust and take up space only. So why to keep it when I can pass it on somebody who will be glad about it. Sometimes I use these old OST versions as prizes in my film music contests.
  11. Yes, you're right. I have tried to synchronize it and it fits and sounds wonderfully. Thanks for a good idea!
  12. And it is not enough! DG is releasing also Blu-Ray only edition. https://www.amazon.de/John-Williams-Live-in-Vienna-Blu-ray/dp/B08NVDLLX1
  13. I'm preparing my lecture about John Williams' scores for sci-fi films where I'm going to use some film scenes with music only.
  14. Yes this is exactly what I need to know and where are the edit points because the End Title part is not only sped up but also edited.
  15. Yes, I did. But I still don't know how to alter "Prelude and Main Title (Film Version)" (track 17 on Disc 2) to fit it to the film scene. Unfortunatelly I don't know how to do the upward pitch shift and subsequent small edits exactly the same as it is done in the film.
  16. I have tried to match "Prelude and Main Title (Film Version)" (track 17 on Disc 2) with the actual Main Title scene from the film and it doesn't fit! It seems the music track from LLL 3CD set is much longer and slower than the actual music in the film. Can anybody help me how to synchronize it? Thanks a lot in advance.
  17. When the new mastering is done by Mike Matessino it always sounds better.
  18. Both have been recorded in London at the Abbey Road Studios.
  19. The videorecording of the ceremony is available on YouTube again!
  20. What is wrong with the dynamic range of Superman 3CD set? I have also read some complaints on the remastering of the OST album on Disc 2 of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial 2CD set but haven't noticed any problems with it. BTW is there any other case where Mike Matessino's remastering reportedly sounds worse than the original soundtrack release?
  21. Jay, in the long main list Angela's Ashes is Sony Music release but in the simplified list it is Universal Music Group release. What is right?
