    " Lights, Camera... Music! Six Decades of John Williams" what a great album.

    Lockhart is a very good interpret of the music of John Williams, this album is ESSENTIAL.

    I certainly hope there will be one -- and that it also includes some of the lesser-performed pieces.

    I watched a Perry Mason last night from 61-62 called The Case of the Ancient Romeo and I heard the Jaws theme except for the last note it was identical. Could it be that Williams' did work for the CBSlibrary back then?
    listen to more classical music!

    Hm ... listen to the first seconds of Bernard Hermann's theme from North by Northwest. Or better still, listen to John Williams. smile

    No, Tom, to my knowledge Williams did not work on PERRY MASON or the CBS library.

    I know you've said this before but I maintain that any similarity between Jaws and NXNW is fleeting and coincidental at most.

    It had escaped my attention that the only currently-in-print versions of the original Star Wars trilogy scores are the original albums and not the special edition expansions. They’re on Disney Records, the rights having seemingly reverted from Sony.

    I have never own d any version of these scores except the special edition ones. I love them dearly but particularly Empire and Jedi are just too long for me to ever listen to, and because of the way they’re produced with so many tracks combined into longer ones, it’s not very simple to distill them down to something shorter.

    Has anyone hear heard these “current” versions? How is the sound? Am considering investing in Jedi because it doesn’t look like I can get anywhere near replicating the original album from the extended one. (Not as bothered about Empire because I recently got the Gethardt recording which is a perfect distillation.)

    I had the special editions on Amazon Prime Music, then one day they disappeared and were replaced with the original albums, containing about half the music actually in the movie. Really annoying!

    I owned the 2CD RCA special editions of these once. Never cared for them, so I sold them. I'm perfectly content with my Arista box CDs. Curiously, I don't think I ever owned the original soundtracks of either three (the original LPs subsequently released on CD), but I've heard them and I think they're great.

  6. Those Sony sets are still in print in Germany. The original albums are not. I'm talking CDs here, not downloads.

    Jup, same here in the Netherlands. Both the Corellian 7-disc edition and the older silver/black 6-disc box are still in print? The original albums are not in print on CD, but they are in the iTunes Store. Digitally you're right, I'd noticed that. The sound quality is fine, if a little "old school".

    Given Sony released that "ultimate vinyl" edition as recently as 2016, after the whole Disney tale-over, which is also still in print, I'm not sure they've lost the rights just yet? Maybe only for digital, with Disney not having the rights for their remastering?
