  1. 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.

    I have this entire EAP episode on VHS, recorded off the original PBS broadcast.

    Me too. Both on VHS and an ancient CD-R somewhere, acquired in the late 90s or early 2000s. I was convinced the whole thing was on Youtube, but apparently not.


    You are lucky, guys.

    I'm really interested in the videorecording.

    Is the quality of the video better than those clips on YouTube?

  3. 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!!! :woop:

    What if the expansion includes a disc with the OST in improved sound?


    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.

    @E-Wan,if this matters, the DVD and Blu Ray releases of 'Superman'  have an ‘isolated music score’ audio track where the music is edited and sync’d with the film.


    Otherwise, what project are you working on that you have to do the sync’ing/edits yourself?


    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.

    You didn't real the liner notes.  Donner artificially sped up the end credits recording when he tracked it into the opening of the film.    The LLL CD re-creates the same edits as used in the film, but doesn't alter the speed.


    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.

    Superman (some controversy on this one for the dynamic range as I saw in some forums but sounds great to me).


    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?
