  1. LLL has definitely has some new William/Spielbergs projects in store for us in the near future- I dont know if all of them will materialise this year. But AI will be enough to enjoy in the interim period. I'm still ravishing over their majestic EMPIRE OF THE SUN. Maybe Intrada could surprise us with a definitive JAWS issue-Im speculating of course..
  2. First he should rerecord STORIA DI UNA DONNA, dammit! Ofcourse, Damnit! lol
  3. Maybe if we get James Fitzpatrick of Tadlow to re-record the entire REIVERS score he could add this suite with and with out the dialogue. He does include such pieces as bonus cues. So if it were to happen this would be a perfect opportunity to have the music only track of the suite.
  4. Er... you're wrong, sorry. While the OST can be a fine listen on its own and surely contains several key highlights, it does not represent the score in all its subtlety, nuances and true musical fashion. As others said, it omits almost completely the music from the first act of the film and some really gorgeous connective tissue material where the thematic material is further explored and taken to new directions (JW is a master of the theme-and-variations approach). A.I. maybe doesn't have the same tone poem-like narrative flow as Superman, Raiders, Star Wars or Harry Potter--it's a real stran
  5. Apart from this expansion set of AI it is indeed gratifying to know that LLL through the professional expertise of Mike Mattessino have managed to forge a very good trust worthy relationship with both Williams and Spielberg's offices. LLL has already alluded to this fact that these will forge further releases from them in the near future ( and I guess these are probably in pre-production since revealed last year in an on-line interview and recently on the FSM) So what's on their agenda? Well I know nothing but I would speculate that the breathtaking restorations of the recent EMPIRE OF THE SU
  6. The recent trend of John William expansions from LLL have mostly been Steven Spielberg films.. like the recent, 1941, HOOK and EMPIRE OF THE SUN.. just an observation....what Williams Spielberg scores deserves a proper expansion in your opinion?
  7. Great News! La La Land gearing up for another JOHN WILLIAMS title for a possible May release! Here is what LLL post on their Facebook Empire of the Sun message: Did I mention that we are wrapping up another William's expansion now? Artwork goes into the studio for approval shortly. Hopefully by May we will see the final product. I'll say the Gates at Warner bros have been opened let the speculation begin!
  8. I would speculate that the next line of title could easily be from the Warner archive or even Universal. Since the success of EMPIRE OF THE SUN to which even Mike Mattessino eluded to one of his essays as opening to new doors/projects. And we have been lucky with LLL's recent batch of goodies such as HOOK, JANE EYRE, HOME ALONE 1 & 2, ROSEWOOD, 1941 and now EMPIRE OF THE SUN so lets see. Make a wish list and the likely release title are in there.
  9. I do remember reading in a JW interview on the subject that that there were many other cues recorded that did not end on the film or something to that effect. Probably an extra hour worth..?
  10. Thank You folks- This is for a *special project' Cheers!
  11. Can someone confirm the length and the individual cues used in the Concert Arrangements of the LINCOLN score-Thanks!
  12. Sorry, I guess I get sensitive about labels getting to announce their own projects instead of fans announcing things for them. But this obviously is the exact opposite of an announcement, just the reveal that a delay happened that he hadn't posted publicly himself yet. Since he has told both you and me that it was delayed, I am sure he doesn't mind it being "out there" that the Williams title they brought up in that radio interview has been delayed. I was just having a bad day yesterday, sorry about that! Peace and love! "Apology Accepted,..... General Needa"...LOL. Seriously no issue here and
  13. I agree. Lets hope that its not a big delay to this exquisite release. But I can also add that MV teased as follows " ... 2015 will have some great stuff by him " Who are you and why is MV telling you this stuff? Jason....Why do you keep asking who am i? You and i are even friends on Facebook and MV is a friend too...so there

  15. Just an update the La La Land 2nd JW title scheduled for this year has now been deferred to 2015. You can go back to your EMPIRE OF THE SUN complete 2cd set in the meantime. Where did you hear this? from the Big folks at La La Land. It has do with the delays in approval, artwork etc.. stay tuned. Is this posted on a message board somewhere that you are not bothering to link to, or is this something they have told you in person? Yes Jason personaly from MV. If it was posted on.another website I would have shared that link.

  18. Ludwig, I also think the possibility of thinking of using existing pieces of classical repertoire might have been discussed in the very early stages of the meetings. Williams own quote "I felt we needed our own themes" super imposes the thought that other existing themes/music may have been considered. The above quotes that you refer to while accurate reflect the mood of when it was strongly decided to go with an original symphonic score. The quotes more or less gravitate with the sole idea of creating a brand new original themes and mood of the film. Just my few cents here. Look forward to or
  19. I also think its EMPIRE OF THE SUN-next- the other could very well be the HARRY POTTER 1
  20. Just an heads up from the La La Land team during the Tracksounds soundcast in which they won the label of the year award for 2013. They have 2 (John) Williams projects in line for 2014. First one is expected around spring (or summer) schedule and the 2nd one around Fall 2014. All subject to approvals but your guys can take your guess. You can listen to the podcast here: http://www.tracksounds.com/default.htm
  21. If anyone taped it, can you upload it somewhere. Thanks!
  22. I really hope that both EMPIRE OF THE SUN and JFK get a good remaster and an expansion some day soon. Also BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY needs to get a proper expansion as well. Not seen that film in ages but Im sure there must be more unrelased music on that one. Really looking forward to the ROSEWOOD expansion. I like the earthy home and hearth feel in the music and the love theme really resonates well; and good cues were all missed on the OST. Good to know all the gospel songs are on the 2nd disc.
  23. True. But for me its more than just sentimental. Its something like being associated with part of history! 100 years from now this will be considered a real treasure!
  24. Thanks all. I truly thank the Almighty for this great opportunity. I still cant believe it. @E.T : the Superman box set looks great!!
