John Williams scores - by Film Studio

Recommended Posts

BTW The Reivers is really licensing nightmare!

 

Produced by Cinema Center Films, which is owned by Paramount now.

Distributed by National General Pictures, which is owned by Warner Bros. now.

Soundtrack released by Columbia Records, which is owned by Sony Music now.

 

I really understand why this is so difficult to re-release.

1968 Sergeant Ryker [Universal]

I think you should cross-off Sergeant Ryker from that list.

Besides the fact that it was an edit of 2 Kraft Suspense Theater episodes, most of its music was not specifically composed for it.

It was tracked from another unrelated episode of that series.

And if the information on Wikipedia is correct, Daddy-O is actually MGM film, not Sony.

I found a VHS for it released by Sony on Amazon, so we'll go with that.

1963 Diamond Head (FSM 2006)
1972 Images (Prometheus 2007)

1973 Cinderella Liberty (Intrada 2008)

 

Are these original OST album/promo reissues really already complete?

I don't think any if them are complete, no. 

 

So why are they crossed, which means "has been expanded in the modern era"?

These 3 CD releases are straight reissues of original LPs with no extra music.

Crossed off Far and Away.  Not a lot of post-Jaws scores left at Universal!

Every time I look at this section I get sad...  I mean, I know these will get the proper treatment eventually, and we've received sooo many excellent expanded releases the last decade (for which I am extremely thankful for), but there is so much JW goodness in the list below!!!  Here's to hope that we will see a majority of these released by Disney w/ MM supervising in this decade!

 

Disney
1977 Star Wars(1997 RCA release is not complete)
1980 The Empire Strikes Back(1997 RCA release is not complete and has sound quality issues)
1981 Raiders of the Lost Ark  [Paramount still involved?] (2008 Concord release is not complete and has pitch issues)
1983 Return of the Jedi (1997 RCA release is not complete and has sound quality issues)
1984 Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom [Paramount still involved?] (2008 Concord release is not complete and has pitch issues)
1989 Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade [Paramount still involved?] (2008 Concord release is not complete)
1999 The Phantom Menace (2000 Ultimate Edition is not complete and has many other problems)
1995 Nixon
2002 Attack of the Clones
2005 Revenge of the Sith
2008 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull [Paramount still involved?]

An expertly remastered and assembled Temple of Doom and Last Crusade is like all I want out of the catalog expansion business.  I hope Disney lets Mike do it

I think the disaster box was a fluke and we aren't really going to see any other cross-film-studio pairings

Well we know Universal is working through stuff and that Cruise is signing off on things lately. So those.

Also I want Hook done by someone who has an idea what they're doing unlike last time. So that.

I don't know if it's just because I bought Minority Report and Far and Away but I have a feeling we'll see Born on the Fourth of July before too long. 

 

Crazy thing was i didn't even think of the Tom Cruise connection until I was holding both discs in my hands.

I'm afraid the remaining studios are a little bit more problematic to co-operate with the specialty labels.
