Given the recent massive success of Maverick, I do wonder if this might be the time for them to finally release the original Top Gun score after it's been mentioned to have been worked on in the past.

After listening to @Thor’s  podcast, I would like a television works collection. 

Wagon Train would be a cool place to start. With two original scores by Goldsmith and a whopping SIX (or more) from Williams, that’s a bunch of guaranteed sales already even before you add in names like Schifrin, Moross, Green, DeVol, Fried, Skinner, Amfitheatrof, Harline, Salter, Gold, Courage, Roemheld, Webb, Buttolph, Murray, Mockridge, and Shores…


Plus it’s owned/controlled by Universal, an entity which seems friendly to the labels (though admittedly we haven’t gotten much TV from them as yet).

I'm guessing Amistad or Born on the Fourth of July for the Williams title, and hoping for Goldsmith's MacArthur as well.


MacArthur would be nice, because it's one of the few Goldsmiths I don't have yet.

Covid seemed to slow down film studio approvals to an astonishing new degree


Which is absurd. Seems to me that approving stuff that was all ready to be produced and released would have been the one easy thing to do while everything else was shut down.

A proper one done with TLC.


Hoping for Hook, but as long as a new Williams one is done every year at least, that just means we're one step closer to the big big ones;)

The $40 title has me intrigued. 3CD set? 4CD set?

I bet the $39.98 one will be a 3CD or 4CD box. But which one? A few bets:

  • The John Williams Oliver Stone collection (not likely, they're movies from different studios);
  • The non-Williams Harry Potter collection (with music by Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Hooper and Alexandre Desplat);
  • The non-Williams Jurassic Park collection (JP3 and the first World movie - the sequels already have big enough OSTs);
  • Another Star Trek box;
  • The John Williams TV collection (with his earlier music for 60s TV shows);
  • Star Wars Original Trilogy/Indiana Jones box (yeah, right...)

How much was the JP box set when it first dropped?

Not that there's a pattern, but $15 or so per disc. I bet the $40 set is 3 discs. Or 4 discs.

Elfman's Spider-Man 1 perhaps? If I am not mistaking, this year marked the 20th anniversary of this film. I remember that #2 and #3 were said to be impossible to do, but I don't think I've ever heard the same for the first one.


Maybe something for a film franchise that has gotten (or will be getting) a sequel or reboot lately/soon? I reckon Avatar would be something for Intrada to look into so, Faltermeyer's Top Gun 1 perhaps?


How about a soundtrack album for JNH and co's "A Series of Unfortunate Events" TV series?


They also haven't yet looked into JNH's Postman, even though they released sets for Waterworld and Wyatt Earp. That could be on their to-do list.


It would be super cool if they started looking into JNH/M Night collaborations too. Perhaps starting with Signs which, just like Spidey 1 above, also had its 20th anniversary this year. Though I don't think there was much interesting or significant music missing from the 2002 CD, if anything at all.

Those would be Intrada's territory, right?

Curious order, seems to be random? 2 disc, 2 disc, 3-4 disc, 2 disc, 1 disc. You'd think it'd be organised from lowest to highest... unless this is in reveal order? In which case the 1CD one is the last one, the biggest one? Maybe something thought to be lost or impossible?

The $40 title feels like a 4-CD set to me - Intrada's Sleepy Hollow is the same price. Given a highly unreliable rumour posted on Intrada's forum a while back, I'm going to keep my prayers open that it's Gladiator (1/2 - score, 3 - alternates, 4 - OST).


Otherwise must be either some sort of TV box or some other score that has a lot of material. Outside of Hook (which we know it isn't) I can't think of any JW scores that would fit this.


If their history is anything to go by, they'll try to do a mix of newer stuff (perhaps millennium onwards) and older stuff so there's something for everyone to at least consider. This is certainly the most exciting batch in a while, partly as they've got it nailed down this far in advance and because so much other great stuff has come out generally over the year that we're probably not in a 'drought' period generally.

It would make real sense to be TLW and JPIII because the former gives them a nice dependable revenue stream (especially if it somehow has something new on it) for less work than a new release, and the latter is a nice sister release and closes the book on the JP trilogy.


But this is where serious expectation management is needed, and of course things may not fall into place as nicely as that.

I'd hope for either of those to have some film versions

Though the JP2 filmversions would be hard to recreate.

Hook has had exactly 2 releases. The original soundtrack album in 1991, and an incomplete expansion produced by Didier Deutch in 2012, which was only in print for about a year before it sold out in the summer of 2013 and had been unavailable since. 


Any other "releases" you might have seen on the internet are unofficial fan edits / bootlegs.
