  1. Hi to all JWFN members. It is great to see such dedication and knowledge to the man who has scored more than just the movies. On that note The History Press and I would like to share word of a new book published now in the UK and September 1st 2018 in the US. John Williams is the spine and soul of this book. Mark O’Connell didn’t want to be Luke Skywalker. He wanted to be one of the mop-haired kids on the Star Wars toy commercials. And he would have done it had his parents had better pine furniture and a condo in California. Star Wars, Jaws, Close Encounters of th
  2. picture from @Falstaft's theme collection "The Medallion" theme is a seductive melody full of teasing by minor sixth leaps, triplets, and slow descents, and at first playful, sharpened notes, and then by relaxing flattened notes.

(don't know how prone we are to religious flamewars, so I'll just stick to this) The Ark theme is very enjoyable with many great renditions. I consider it the villain theme of Raiders. To me, it communicates "You're meddling in things you should not be meddling in. If you so much as blink wrongly I will smash you like an ant." Uncovering the Ark is not a triumphant moment, it is quite dark and foreboding, like Indy and Sallah just released an ancient evil. The only semi-nice version is the fin
  5. I spotted some guy in UK auctioning 3 Williams cds (RAIDERS Silva edition & 2 E.T) on ebay. I'am NOT the seller. Im not sure if these are fake or not but the seller has some story about how he got them. You decide ? But if anyone is interested then please check these out: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Raiders-Of-The-Lost-Ark-Expanded-Soundtrack-CD-Signed-By-John-Williams/132248986803?_trksid=p2481888.c100678.m3607&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908131621%26meid%3D5af7e68036a54b4c84acfc34d46a1b5f%26pid%3D100678%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3
