Well, pre-announces actually:     COMING SOON LIMITED EDITION (3-CD SET)

Hey I just received My Superman set!   Wait... why the cover art is different?

It's just that I recall reading that THE BEATLES did alot of manipulating of speed and pitch. They could change keys upward without it sounding like it was sped up.

Fwiw

 

 

I could be wrong, but I believe that was all done by changing the speed - they would play/sing slower or faster to compensate. Same principle with the Chipmunks back in the day, although that was obviously a more extreme case.

Right .

For example , the instrumental break from IN MY LIFE is a piano sped up . It not only increase speed but pitch, making it sound like harpsichord.

On STRAWBERRY FIELDS , iirc, there were two sections recorded in different keys. The engineer was able to raise the pitch so they matched. I guess the voice sounded slightly higher also

@E-Wan,if this matters, the DVD and Blu Ray releases of 'Superman'  have an ‘isolated music score’ audio track where the music is edited and sync’d with the film.

 

Otherwise, what project are you working on that you have to do the sync’ing/edits yourself?

 

I'm preparing my lecture about John Williams' scores for sci-fi films where I'm going to  use some film scenes with music only.

Why not just sync LLL track #1 to the film then?  The audience won't have any clue that the actual film used a sped up end titles instead

 

Yes, you're right. I have tried to synchronize it and it fits and sounds wonderfully.

 

Thanks for a good idea!

I meant on either FSM or RHINO.

Not a fan of other films

I am saying those alts and source cues from the Rhino and FSM are not on here, and the reason is because they are on that other set.

 

(BTW, for those who care, some early unrecorded versions of cues were rerecorded for the sequels)

So as I understand it there are two endings to the Superman March material. There is the Main Title, which ends with an extra crash from the orchestra, and the End Title, same authoritative brass but without the final crescendo and crash. As I had understood it, the Theme from Superman track was the original Prelude attached to the End Title, however that cue on the La-La Land has the extra bop which means it is the Main Title?

 

I doubt a mistake was made, just want to make sure I am correctly understanding Williams original album assembly.

It's the end title primarily, with the extra crash from the main title. I think it is explained in the liner notes (it was in the FSM 2008 version), if not I think we just went over it on a recent page here

Until every last take, of every last cue, of every last alternate....

It seems so pointless having the sessions when a definitive edition has been prepared and released just to have a cue with so many takes with probably little or no variation. If there was anything substantially different, I am sure it would have been on the La-La Land set.
