What an amazing album! Congrats to everyone who worked so hard!

One quick question: The liner notes seem to suggest MIDWAY will be released soon, unless I'm reading them incorrectly. "...FAMILY PLOT, MIDWAY and THE MISSOURI BREAKS... It is a mystery worthy of Hitchcock that the latter title was the only one to receive an album release, with neither of the other scores materializing as full albums in their original recordings for more than three decades."

I realize that doesn't necessarily mean MIDWAY is next, but it does sound promising. Not that I'm complaining, I'm too busy enjoying FAMILY PLOT as I write this, but we all know that as soon as we have one album, the thrill of the wait for the next takes oversmile

When compared with this stunning new release of the whole score, the Hip-O release of the End Credits sounds like an alternate (slower) take mastered at the wrong pitch/speed. In any case the new cd sounds tremendous.

Thanks Mike and everyone at Varese. I can't get over what a breathtaking score this is!

Any chance of a "Bernard Herrmann At Universal" box? big grin

Still waiting on mine, so I haven't read the notes yet but that would be a dream release for me!!
Fingers crossed! smile

I'm a little pissed. Order shipped Tuesday, this is Saturday- no receipt. Several other posters in Texas received theirs. God Damned Post Office. Sitting in a sorting bin at some Postal center somewhere.

I guess you're referring to me? I'm in El Paso.
You're in Austin, correct? My brother lives there, too.
He always recieves his packages later than I do.

Steve, I figured out the problem, I spelled out underscore in your email instead of the symbol. It's all straightened out now, please email me. I'm so sorry for the confusion.

According to the Varese web site my 3 cd order still hasn't shipped. Then again their old site showed several orders as still pending years after I had received them.

By the way, the technical note in the booklet has a technical gaff in that it says The Missouri Breaks was from Universal, when in fact it was a United Artists film.

Hehe. I'm sure either studio won't mind. I'd hate to think they'd be so offended
to reprimand anyone over something so trivial.

All that matters is that the one surviving element of Family Plot has finally been rescued and released!

Mike


Bravo! Now here's hoping to a complete and definitive EARTHQUAKE (another one of
my Williams favorites) with another stunning mastering, without the wall-crumbling
sound effects from the previous Varese cd.

I live about 60 miles from the shipping point. Don't expect the CD for a while. Ordered 1st day available. Post Office slow or VS lagging. Take your pick.

Funny, I really didn't mind the sound effects on Earthquake prior to moving to southern California.

After this one, only one more Hitchcock score missing.

This one I'm going to savour slowly. Not too many Williams scores left to appreciate.

Next stop... Tintin who also happens to be my childhood idol.

Cheers!

Got it today and it never sounded better. Top drawer work, MM.

"The Mystery Woman" music which crops up throughout remains my favorite theme from this score, but I'm delighted that there is much more thematic variety in FP than I remember. A total charmer. I also did not know that Williams wrote "The Stonecutter" cue. It's wonderful to have the full track of that. smile

Just arrived in the mail alongside 'Home Movies'. What can I say? Brilliant sound and impressive booklet.

Release of the year.

What's up with "The Stonecutter"? I never saw the film and the liner notes do not seem to mention it. Is it a source cue from the film?
