If I were John Williams, I'd certainly be spending some money to get these. KEep them safe, have back-ups should stuff on other masters become damaged, lost, etc.


If this is what she does with the popular scores, what is she doing with the ones she may deem crap? Tossing them in the trash?

None of these are master tapes. None. Not one. Does anyone actually read the listings before getting on their podiums? Seriously.

One is a QUAD master - who cares? Has nothing to do with the session masters.

One is a safety (Empire) NOT the originals - who cares?

And the other is four cues and I guarantee you a back-up of either the film mixes or the LP mix - again, who cares? None of these are worth squat to any label.

I think I'd give a hundred dollars just to hear these tapes once. If Intrada or LaLa gets hold of these (and these are indeed the sessions masters), then please include a disk of rehearsal excerpts, especially of the Main/End Title and all the big attack sequences (Imperial Attack, Sand People Assault, Tie Fighter Battle, Deathstar Attack) as it would be fascinating to hear how these sequences took shape on the stage.

THREE Williams in one batch?! And all from the 70's/80's? I'll be giving this a pass, but I'm happy for those who've been waiting for them.

Regarding the "Star Wars" master: Could this be of the Cantina Band sequences or were those also recorded in London? The date on the box is late March, a week or so after the last Anvil session.

Did you even READ my post or the listings. Why do you do this? These are NOT the session masters and not even close to them. They are, in essence, worthless.

There are actually a lot of album master tape safety copies that come up on eBay all the time - major rock stuff. Who cares?

Glad to see a professional chime in. But for us who don't know the difference. What is a Quadmaster or a Safety?

Yes, I read what you wrote and unfortunately see that where I wrote 'and' I meant to type 'and if '(as in and 'if these are...'). If you saw my later post I asked about the possibility of these being the masters for the Cantina (source music arrangement) sequences, your argument that these weren't the London orchestral sessions convincing enough.

Actually the 2" 16-track for Star Wars IS the first-generation master.

These came from the John Neal estate—Neal was the remix engineer on the Star Wars original 2LP set and evidently had the material when he died. The guy who acquired has had them for some time and tried to sell them. I believe Lucasfilm already borrowed them to digitize.

Thanks for the clarification, Lukas.

BTW: Where was the Cantina music recorded? I doubt this was done at the cavernous Anvil studio.
