LLL, Intrada and Varese are all doing amazing work expanding JW's catalog with Mike, but what are your predictions for the next score tackled by each of the 3?   It's a safe bet that somethi

Intrada: How To Steal A Million 55th anniversary LLL: Jane Eyre 50th anniversary Varese: Heartbeeps 40th anniversary

I perfectly agree with your predictions. I would also say that after the long wait since the last Williams released I wouldn't be surprise if LLL would release an Oliver Stone boxset for the 30th anniversary of JFK.

Quartet, Music Box, Kritzerland, Note For Note in shambles right now... 

I don't know how Music Box is doing right now but the price of there second hand sets as almost doubled compare to the usual since the six month now. I've seen Intrada Jaws for $180!!! So I'm gessing they're not so well financially....

  • Varese   Presumed Innocent
  • Intrada   Stepmom or Seven Years in Tibet

I figured someone would point this out; I just limited it to the 3 labels who have released modern JW expansions produced by Mike.

 

No offense intended to any of the other labels who are also doing amazing work on score expansions. I'd be thrilled to see any of them tackling JW scores!

Did I miss something, is The Patriot definitely Intrada territory? If yes, that's somewhat of a bummer, I'd love to see what Jim Titus would do with it, it'd fit so nicely with Far and Away.

The OST album to The Patriot was released by Hollywood Records, which is owned by Disney, so it's assumed nobody else but Intrada could get a license to expand it (the contract would involve Sony Pictures for the remaining music that wasn't on the OST)

Am I correct that Return to Witch Mountain is the last Intrada release of a Disney owned score?  That was December 2019.  Hopefully this abnormally long gap is just a pandemic thing, and not a sign of a new normal.

Their most recent Disney title was Alive by James Newton Howard, in January 2020

 

We know they're working on Willow and that Broughton theme park album, so the partnership is still alive!

Sadly that score would be prohibitively expensive to expand unless the AFM changed their fee structure for post-WOTW scores (or granted LLL a waiver, maybe because the score was recorded so close to the cutoff).

 

It's definitely one of my most-coveted expansions though, stunning score. The unreleased cue when Sayuri enters the garden is sublime (and even has an alternate that went unused!)

 

 

 

 

That's lovely. Sayuri's theme might be more obvious in the score, but Chiyo's theme is the true heart and soul of this score. Gorgeous theme

Which makes sense in the context of the film, considering Sayuri's longing to reunite with her family (except the Chairman becomes the surrogate for that void in her life). 

 

It really is a tantalising cue list when you see how many alternates JW wrote. If only it was recorded a few months prior :crymore:

Okay as nobody has said the obvious yet I'm gonna do it:

 

LLL:

  •  Hook (3CD) for may
  • The John Williams Indiana Jones Collection (9CD) for july
  • The John Williams Oliver Stone Collection (6CD) for Black Sunday
  • The John Williams Star Wars Collection (25CD) inclueding Episode I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VIII, IX, Galaxy Edge (four hour presentation) Rogue One rejected score and Mando rejected score for this december

Varèse:

  • Presumed Innocent (2CD)
  • The Eiger Sanction (2CD) for july

Intrada:

  • The Patriot (3CD)
  • Seven Years in Tibet (2CD)
  • The Witches of Eastwick (2CD)
  • The BFG (2CD)
  • Stepmom (10CD) for december

This predictions are I think almost perfect and next year we get all what's missing.

 

LLL and Intrada already said that Star Wars / Indiana Jones would be done through Disney's own label, not through a specialty label. IF hypothetically they'd be done by a specialty label, they'd be Intrada territory, not LLL.

I'm sure Disney Records will finally get around to Star Wars... right after they finish re-re-re-re-releasing all 9 OSTs on vinyl. 

 

... and then release them again with new Deluxe packaging.

 

Can't say I understand their logic in refusing to licence the scores to Intrada when they're doing nothing with them themselves... but hey, what do I know? :unsure:

LLL - Amistad

Intrada - The Patriot

Varese - The Reivers

 

Maybe it’s because Varese has already tackled the other JW score that lead to Spielberg hiring Williams for The Sugarland Express, but I’d really love to see them also take on The Reivers, though I seem to recall it has an especially complicated rights situation.

 

@Jay Is any of the speciality labels any likelier than the others to take on The Reivers, or is it equally likely to be expanded by any of them?

I really want a complete Amistad and The Patriot.


These are really two of the best expansions left to be done, apart from the obvious Star Wars and Indy titles. Both have plenty of great material that didn’t make it onto the OSTs.

Supposedly Paramount inherited the rights when National General Pictures folded, and Paramount works with all the labels. But I don't know the original scoring elements exist anywhere or got lost over time
