1. Imagine what a better composer than JW would write

2. Write it down

3. Be a better composer than John Williams!

Thanks for bumping this - I had no clue they fixed the mastering on disc 2.  Just grabbed it on sale - been a very lucrative week for LLL on my end.

With the 25% off sale, I pretty much knocked out my “maybe” list from LLL, which included Die Hard, Child’s Play 2, and Batman: The Movie.  I also bought Beavis and Butt-head because I liked the samples, and every one of their $5 CDs that I didn’t already have.  All told, I spent too much money and have some regrets about it!

Dear MV

 

Are you able to provide replacements for the 2nd disc of Schindler's List that had sound issues on the 1st pressing?

 

 

I don't recall any issues

Yes I remember that but who is saying that they fixed the issue.If it’s a pressing error in some batches it should be replaced.

The original pressing looks like this:

The newer pressing looks like this:

It’s been fixed. There are also ears-on testimonials a page or two back, including Bespin. Whether they should distribute replacements is a different question from whether they will - but we do have a definitive “no” answer to the latter question.

This error should have replacements. Intradas eiger sanction really didnt need to be replaced. But different policies from different companies…

 

im wont buy first pressings anymore, unless its confirmed no errors are present

I guess the problem with these limited editions produced by highly specialized companies is that you never know which edition is the one to get.

 

Wasn’t there a cue missing from the 2nd pressing of Jaws due to a rights issue?

What?

 

Damn.. i suppose i have the 1st pressing... but which cue was that?

 

I remember hearing that there is a reissue planned, but will only be one disc, as per rights issues they cannot release more copies of the original 2cd release.

That's not what Roger said

So, I thought I'd completed my collection of JW commercially released scores when I picked up Mr. Chips... And while organizing the other day, I realized... um.. well...  I am missing Schindler's List!?!?!? :blush:  What the hell is wrong with me? :blink:

 

I must order this.  I haven't listened to the score in years.

Sorry, I was thinking about this.

It’s not confirmed yet what the changes might be.

 

The Jaws 2CD set is currently sold out but will likely be re-issued at some point with a slightly different program.

I know it's not necessarily Intrada's fault but I won't be shelling out for an inferior product, if they really are stripping all the bonus tracks off and labelling it a "reissue." 

 

To hell with these AFM rules on quantities. Jaws is a defining score in film history and that archival release should remain in print for perpetuity.

 

Can anyone explain why they can only re-release the score after scrapping a quarter of the album, when countless other scores have been expanded multiple times, often with subsequent expansions that went beyond the previous release?

 

If the mandate is simply that the assembly needs to be different, couldn't they just move all the bonus tracks to disc 2, or drop one bonus track instead of them all? Even try adding the source music Williams declined in 2015? Never hurts to ask again, considering his stance may have changed in 7 years...

You're missing the OST as well?

Yup.  I’m pretty embarrassed but at the same time excited to give it some love with another listen.
