Don't ban anyone on my account. They got me fair and square. No harm done ... Peace, D

My package from La La Land arrived today, and one from Amazon!

All of this week's packages in one picture!

My JG collection is complete!

The ST: TMP rendition on this one is very strange indeed, which is especially disappointing as it uses the LSO.

 

What's also odd is the front cover lists "Theme from The Russia House" and "Love Theme from Forever Young" while the rest of the films are just listed by their titles. My OCD can't deal.

It sounds fine to me. Much better than the one conducted by JW!

 

It's something about the fact that the brass suddenly becomes pianissimo then slowly fades in again at about the 12 to the 16th note of the main theme. It just does not sound right. I couldn't listen past the first minute.

 

Yes JW's rendition was terribly sluggish (a bit like his SpaceCamp) which was disappointing, as his Alien was the boss. Kunzel's ST: TMP was way better, as was his Battlestar Galactica.

On which album are these?

I'm okay with that, but then I don't remember how the original sounds.

Oh yeah, I sampled that album quite recently. Didn't like it enough to purchase it, though. Are there sound effects in the music tracks? Then that's probably the reason I didn't want it.

It sounds nothing like the original, or any other rendition I have heard.

 

I think it sounds cool. JG clearly found a way to improve the piece. :)

There is a tiny little synth flourish at the beginning of ST: TMP which sounds just like something that Jerry could have written, so works for me. There are no SFX in (or out) of the other tracks.

Apparently JG changed the Dynamics of the theme Insurrection onward IIRC

Tell us more about Brun.

 

Can't say much yet. Amazon recommended it as a "bought also" a while back, and it was down to just €20 when I placed another order, so I picked it up. I got it yesterday and have only listened to the first two of the 11 disc so far - and so far, it's nothing essential, but really nice. Virtually unknown composer who sounds like anything from Beethoven to Dvorak to Sibelius. The performances and acoustics could be better, but are servicable.

My first Signature Edition score. Due to (I assume) some mixup, it was available for just €6.50 a few months ago at a German online store (I only received it now because I co-ordered with a friend from Germany to save on shipping). For reference, there's a sticker by Hal Leonard on the back that says "U.S. $55.00".

Took it 22 days to get here. Magic wasn't part of my order but once I realised it's going out of print I emailed LLL to add it to my order and I could pay the difference. But they just offered to add to my order at no extra charge. :)

Oh wait...I didn't order Speed either. I only asked them if it's still available. They're awesome. 😆

Yeah, I wanted to add Bad Girls and Magic to my order and pay for them and Matt replied Bad Girls are already out of print but he's happy to add Magic for free. I thanked him and again offered to pay. And I also asked about whether Speed is still available because I couldn't find it on the website and I noticed it was going out of print. I was thinking of placing another order for it along with few other titles before the promotion ended. He never replied but today I've found it in the box with other titles.

Do you guys listen to anything other than soundtracks?  Or is there another thread for that?

 

I listen to a lot of vintage stuff, have a soft spot for 50's and 60's exotica like Les Baxter (who once sued JW for copyright stuff if I'm not mistaken), I also listen to a lot of Jazz Funk, Hip Hop jazz fusion stuff, also recently got into a band called Jellyfish which sound like a 90's version of the Beatles, whom I also really enjoy. I also love world music: African Jazz and gospel, the Red Army Choir, Japanese Jazz from the 70's.
