Expanded releases: those that include the Original Album and those that should


Recommended Posts

D'oh!  Totally forgot about Missouri Breaks and Fitzwilly because the JWFan Filmography page doesn't list the Kritzerland and Music Box releses :P

 

There's been so much debate back and forth about The Eiger Sanction that I dunno what's accurate; I tend to fall on the side of its the film tracks with many alternate versions used instead of the film takes.

I wrote the following post earlier this year:    

Here's the original 1982 ET LP digitally:   https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SPN16F2   https://play.google.com/store/music/album?id=Bwzn6geu73jpiwmbwi4c4zu3vwy   https://itun

CHECKMATE is probably his "most rerecorded" soundtrack album ever (if it's possible to quantify such a thing). Some of the tracks are based on actual tracks from the series, but they're very different from them. Also, the album has several tracks that don't appear in the series at all. And what a fantastic album it is! Williams' first "solo" soundtrack, and what landed him a recording contract with Columbia (if memory serves).

The Checkmate album is a total rerecording like the others on the list; I didn't include it because we were talking about film scores and not tv scores :)

I heard there is a guy who created a website showing in a very comprehensive way all the original discography of John Williams.

 

Everybody laughed at him when he started this project.

 

You should consult it!

 

NOTE : The titles you mentionned above can now be quickly found on the Wiki Discography, by searching the terms "re-recording".

I didn't even realize that it had been released digitally, but this is what always kept me from buying it before: the seeming inability of online stores to differentiate between the various versions of the soundtrack released over the years.

It's exactly the same thing as almost all his other OSTs - a mixture of film cues and concert arrangements, all of which were recorded during the film's main scoring sessions.  Tracks 2-5 and 7 are concert arrangements while tracks 1, 6, and 8 are film cues.

 

 

Wow, I always thought the whole E.T. OST was a re-recording! Thanks for setting the record straight.

You always thought that? You're twelve. What are we talking here, six weeks? 

 

 

Come, come, Woj. Young minds, fresh ideas. Be tolerant.

It's true that "always" in this case is not too long a time -- it means "since last fall." :lol:

Every single John Williams album ever is edited from the raw recording sessions to create an album program that John Williams wanted us to hear.

 

Not sure what documenting every edit will accomplish, but good luck!

 

I don't give a damn what JW wants me to hear! I want to hear the full, and complete score, so I can make up my own mind. I was disappointed by the CD of Ep 1, but the expanded 2-cd set is splendid! If Warners can release 2-cd sets of The Hobbit, why can't The Mouse release a 2-cd set of TFA?

Sony?  I think you mean Disney; They have the rights to all future Lucasfilm movies and their scores.

 

And for all we know, Disney could be working on a 2 or 3 disc set of TFA; Who knows!

Now I have to get the original CDs of Raiders and Last Crusade :-/

 

Bess, you don't really need LC, but you need the DCC Raiders, as it has the full version of "Desert Chase".

Of course, you also need the Concord box! :lol:
