  1. It seems it is "Temporarily out of stock" again. http://store.intrada.com/s.nl/it.A/id.11896/.f
  2. Czech Television (CT) has broadcasted the concert recording (with Czech commentary) on Monday. It is still available on their website: https://www.ceskatelevize.cz/porady/13576669986-john-williams-ve-vidni/22054215003/
  3. Kyle Eastwood (Clint Eastwood's son) plays the jazz arrangement of music from The Eiger Sanction The track is from Kyle Eastwood's album Cinematic
  4. Yes, I think this is the reason why Amistad, Saving Private Ryan, Minority Report and Catch Me If You Can are Dreamworks Records releases and The Terminal, War of the Worlds and Munich are not.
  5. Really? According to the following sources all U.S. versions were released by Decca Records too. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Williams_discography http://www.soundtrackcollector.com/title/65585/Terminal%2C+The http://www.soundtrackcollector.com/title/69722/War+Of+The+Worlds http://www.soundtrackcollector.com/title/73506/Munich Only FYC promos for The Terminal and Munich were released by DreamWorks.
  6. Arista Records 1990 Home Alone (La-La Land 2015) Jay, IMHO Arista Records released the song album, not John Williams' score which was released by CBS Records. Dreamworks Records 2004 The Terminal 2005 War of the Worlds (Intrada 2020) 2005 Munich Jay, in fact these 3 soundtracks have been released by Decca Records, not Dreamworks Records.
  7. You are right. I have the same problem with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace Ultimate Edition.
  8. It is interesting. I have never heard about this problem before. It has never occurred to me to compare the weight and thickness of CDs. Can you mention which of the later produced CDs in your collection have stopped working?
  9. I have just realized that first 6 Philips albums have been produced by legendary record producer George Korngold, son of Erich Wolfgang Korngold.
  10. Yes, it is one of the reasons why I'm not keeping the redundant old OST albums - the lack of space in my home. To keep all old releases I will need this space
  11. So when I play FYC promo tracks with the corresponding movie scenes they will fit. Great! Thank you all for information.
  12. I'm just curious are there any tracks from the oficial soundtrack album or FYC promo which have been used in the TROS movie without any alterations? I mean are there any tracks from OST or FYC promo which I can play with the corresponding movie scene and it will fit? Or is the movie total mess regarding the usage of music?
  13. Maybe that is my problem because I have never been the completist and sentimental. You are right the new jewel cases are terrible. So I'm changing them for the old ones. I usually keep the first edition of the book and do not bother to buy new version because the story is the same. This is not the same situation with original OST album versus expanded edition containing the OST program. As I have written I'm not sentimental so I do not see any reason to keep for example original Varese album releases of 1941, Dracula, Earthquake, The Fury, Jaws 2 and The River with poor 4-page booklet with practically no liner notes and only few images from the film and in some cases with very bad sound quality (listen to Dracula). I have never heard this information that older releases will survive longer than the newer ones. Where you have heard/read this? Do you have some links to the source of this information? I usually have the opossite experience. Some older CD or DVD discs in my collection have changed the colour and started to have problems during playback. Some of them are unplayable now.
  14. According the booklets in Harry Potter 7CD box set the only Harry Potter score using already established symphony orchestra is Harry Potter ant the Chamber of Secrets. It was the London Symphony Orchestra. The remaining two scores have used musicians from various UK and US orchestras contracted by Isobel Griffiths. See these pages: HPPS: 16 & 35 HPCOS: 9 & 23 HPPOA: 7 & 23
  15. I do not undestand the reasons to keep OST album when I have it on the expanded edition in better sound quality. 1941, Dracula, Earthquake, E.T., Fitzwilly, The Fury, Home Alone, How to Steal a Million, Jaws, Jaws 2, The Missouri Breaks, Monsignor, Penelope, The River, Rosewood, Saving Private Ryan, Schindler's List, Superman: The Movie and The Towering Inferno all have expanded editions containing original OST album too. I will never play the original OST album releases of these scores anymore. So why to keep them? It is the waste of space only. I understand the reasons to keep original OST album of A.I., Empire of the Sun, Far and Away, Harry Potter 1-3, Hook, Jurassic Park, The Lost World, Minority Report, etc. since they are not included on the expanded editions. And that's why I have kept them.
  16. My package from La-La Land has finally arrived after 3,5 months!!! So you will propably wait another month... or two... or three...
  17. From Deutsche Grammophon shop: Both the standard CD and the Blu-ray disc come in a high-quality digipak in Blu-ray format with a classy “gold foil” look on the cover. https://store.deutschegrammophon.com/p51-i0028948390458/john-williams-wiener-philharmoniker-anne-sophie-mutter/john-williams-live-in-vienna-ltd-deluxe-edition-cd-bluray-/index.html
  18. Yes, it is great 2CD compilation. It is actually the blend of these three Phillips CDs (+ "Flying Theme" and minus Superman tracks): http://www.jw-collection.de/compilations/pops_space.htm http://www.jw-collection.de/compilations/pops_outofthisworld.htm http://www.jw-collection.de/compilations/popsplanets.htm
  19. Here is the documentary about the recording of this cue:
  20. It is just not selfish! First of all it is fraud and robbery which should be punished by law!
