    I've heard so much about this score, as it was one of the greats never released, is it really that great? It seems rather dark and threatening, or am I wrong?


    Well, there are some tense moments, of course, but there are some smokin' highlights too, like the "Preparations Fugue", almost standalone, classical pieces.
    I am extremely serious.

    I read on the site it starts omnious and threatening, but goes to rally pompous music near the end, sounds very good indeed smile

    You might want to read this then...

    A final note about this release: In recent years, a limited edition of this sort would sell out quickly. FSM has negotiated with the American Federation of Musicians (whose players performed the music and are due “re-use” fees for the album) to make this CD a limited edition of 10,000 copies (not the customary 3,000)—enough so that everyone can get one. But if your response to this is, “Good, I’ll get it later”—truly no good deed goes unpunished, and we’ll never try this again! Black Sunday is John Williams action scoring circa 1977—what are you waiting for? Buy it now!

  2. While looking up the musicians on the Natty Gann and SWTWC from Intrada (two of which seem to have quit and are now in real estate), I noted a few on each had passed on. And with each year a number of score performing musicians pass away without note. I dare say in another ten years, a score from the '70's might only have a handful of the players still alive. What woudl hte fees be then? Or for scores where every single musician has passed away? Will this kill re-use fees?

    I don't know this score but the soundclips don't sound too convincing for my ears and since there are so many other scores I want I guess I will pass on this one.
    Glad, though, that you're so happy with it!

    I would imagine that there's provision has been made for dependants to receive any fees.

  4. I will pass up on this one too. I've got a decent and lengthy suite (which was on the bootleg) which holds the highlights. I think I can do without Black Sunday - expanded. I may regret this later however!

    Can't really decide on this one. It was quite some time since I bought anything now and I am thinking about including it in my next purchase. Will need to sample it more though, only got as far as the first track, and that wasn't really something that rocked my world, so to speak. smile

    I'm sorry, I very recently decided on not going. I've already heard the highlights (for me) being played live twice, so it's not worth the money. My friend isn't overly enthusiastic either and is saving money, so we decided not to go. Sorry!
  5. Sorry? SORRY ?????

    Here here! You've said it man. punk

    May he live long and gives us some more worthy film scores soon. But I feel he may be close to retirement, how sad that may be. sad

  6. Happy Birthday to the genius who introduced me to listening to film music away from the pictures!

    Now that it looks like he won't be doing any more UK concerts I think I've put it off long enough and might well book tickets to see the Maestro at his Tanglewood concert this year!

    Have you been to a williams concert before John?

  7. No I haven't unfortunately. I was really holding out for the rumoured London concert in 2005 but when he ended up doing 4 films that year it didn't happen (I'm not sure if there were ever really any solid plans for a concert). I don't think I'd forgive myself if I finished my life without seeing him perform live at least once! My brother lives in Boston so it's a perfect excuse to go over!

    That sounds like a brilliant excuse! I'd go for it, it seems ever increasingly likely that he'll not play here again but I hope I'm wrong.

    It's hard for me to believe that when I saw him ( just the once in 1980 ) he hadn't written Return of The Jedi, Raiders of The Lost Ark and a multitude of other fantastic works.

    Be aware that Johnnyboy doesn't come out to greet the fans after this Film Night at Tanglewood concerts. Was kinda disappointed by that last year; but still, it's a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I'm telling you, the moment he walks out on the podium, if that doesn't give you a kick, I don't know what will smile

    birthday to my all time favorite composer Maestro John Williams. His music introduced me to the world of film music. I don't have words to describe about him. LONG LIVE JOHN WILLIAMS!
