  1. Intrada order page is also up. I placed my order there. https://store.intrada.com/s.nl/it.A/id.12520/.f?sc=13&category=21780
  2. Jeff Bond who wrote the liner says this via on his Facebook page: One of the few enjoyable aspects of my summer after our move was working on this new release of Jerry Goldsmith's magnificent Legend score for Laurent LaFarge and Music Box Records. Douglass Fake miraculously dug up an additional three minutes of the score that hasn't been heard and a few other tidbits (including a brief but gripping, Final Conflict-like choral cue) in good sound make this a pivotal release.
  3. The score is brilliant. Powerful , visceral and visual. It’s the most colourful score he has done.
  4. Translated by Google: LEGEND Original Film Soundtrack composed and conducted by Jerry GOLDSMITH For the first time in an expanded version. 16-page booklet, internal notes by Jeff Bond. Remastered 2-CD edition limited to 2000 copies. In collaboration with Silva Screen Records Ltd, Music Box Records presents, for the first time in an augmented and remastered version, the soundtrack to the film by Ridley Scott Legend (1985) composed and conducted by Jerry Goldsmith (Alien, Basic Instinct). This heroic fantasy film tells the story of Lili (Mia Sara), a young and beautiful princess, coveted both by Jack (Tom Cruise), a young man close to nature, and by Darkness (Tim Curry), a true incarnation of evil, who dreams only of plunging the world into an eternal night by killing the two protective unicorns. Performed by the orchestra and choirs of the National Philharmonic Orchestra, the ambitious score, influenced by Ravel and Debussy, once again highlights the richness of writing and the complexity of one of Jerry Goldsmith's finest music. . The composer has created a score of complex harmonies and orchestrations, supported by elaborate and inventive synthetic textures, and fairy-like and impressionist choirs for a work combining beauty with darkness. For this new edition carefully remastered by Christophe Hénault, the first CD (entitled "The Film Score") offers all the music of the film and the second disc (entitled "Remastered Original Soundtrack Album") takes up the program of the original album which featured a selection of tracks from the soundtrack. This album also includes two unreleased tracks and two other tracks in alternate versions. This present edition, limited to 2000 copies, includes a 16-page booklet including a text written by Jeff Bond who collected the memories of sound engineer Mike Ross-Trevor on his collaboration with Jerry Goldsmith.

  6. Sorry, I'm late to this party but what exactly are the fixes in disc 2? MV does not seem to correctly recall. I have the first pressing and I still haven't found the mood to even open it.
  7. The recent Herrmann Decca set had the original artwork on the sleeves. So I suppose they will follow suit.
  8. I more interested in the confirmation that these are being remastered as per today's technical expertise ! But heck I'll still buy this irrespective. P. S. If they have changed the configuration for the albums that would certainly mean that they are using the original session tapes and not the previous album masters. Thus such a change should substantially require To be be remastered?
  9. I don't think so. But haven't opened my Japanese SACD edition as yet.
  10. I like the Williams Scanned signature on the top of the box artwork-A nice touch.
  11. The Amazon UK listing mentions it as as a 21 Disc Set. So that means THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT set is liekly to be included. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B09DDWK2JM/
  12. So, Iam finally going through the various Chant sheets from the Sacrafice Sequences. I should have a more chronological transcription . Although I don't comprehend the the actual Sanskriti texts but I can still make out some words and those gave me goose bumps: "Beloved Goddess" "Wake us, O' Great Mother" "Fire" Interestingly the transacriptions are listed phonetically so Its difficult to revert them back to the original but Iam trying. More later....
  13. We've had about 5 GOLDSMITHs this year from them so far. Let's have another one to close the year with a bang!!!
  14. Update from Doug: (Recording sessions have wrapped!) https://store.intrada.com/s.nl/sc.13/category.60330/.f
  15. I hope this means Williams can do another film scoring project in between the time he does The Fablemans and Indy V.
  16. The Berlin digitalhall archive will be having this 4KUHD stream once its been edited. You can login anytime to watch it. For newly registered the access is 7 days free trial.
  17. The Concert Program will be archived online in a few days!
  18. Yes. Clearly Berlin loves John Williams. He just might come back!!
  19. I just just saw Anne Sophie Mutter standing next to her son…
  20. This concert is awesome. Having a blast watching all this LIVE from Karachi. We are moving through History guys!!! P. S. Saw him whisper "Very Good" at the end of Marion's Theme. I must say his conducting is still lively as it was 25 years ago.
  21. I tried to purchase the online streaming ticket on their website and my card got declined due to some technical error. Anyone else having the same problem? I tried 2 different card but same decline error.
  22. How was THE ADVENTURES OF HAN SOLO? Thats what I'am interested in hearing the most! -its one of the most exciting 'Solo' themes he has done in the post Anakain Skywalker period.
  23. Lets hope this gets a good recorded album done- ( I think its being done from the discussions) They have 3 day sessions to choose and edit from. It would be even nicer if Willimas can get a seperate recording done sans audience. And hopefully everything will be also released as a LIve concert video recording for possible Blu ray release. I really look forward to the live stream on Saturday.
  24. Wonderful seeing all these pics and reading about your John Williams pilgrimage here. In spirit I'm with you there... 😊
