Can anybody find the quote here at FSM MV made a few weeks ago, maybe a month ago, updating on the "Superman: The Animated Series" episodes list another user had posted weeks earlier? I can't seem to find it. I've gone through thread after thread.

I suspect you're thinking of my comment, which is why you can't find it from MV. smile The gist of it is that a list of SUPERMAN episodes had been floated at some point in the past -- scores that were being looked at for the upcoming release. Someone brought it up a few weeks back, leading people to believe that it was representative of the final lineup. I chimed into say that the list, assuming it came from MV, would have been made very early in the process, and should only be taken as a list of scores that MIGHT be released. Some scores on that list might not appear, and others that aren't on the list might pop up.

Iam now hopeful that the following projects may happen via the Warner enterprise:


JFK


Is there music in JFK not on the album?

I could swear that I read that Williams didn't have time to do a full score for JFK because of his commitment to Hook, so he recorded a sort of toolbox of thematic pieces that Stone and his editors then used in the film (which they were cutting till the last minute).

I always assumed the album was the collection of pieces Williams actually recorded, while the film contained that material cut and pasted as needed.

Is that wildly incorrect?



Here is what a Williams historian Jeff Eldrige posted from a Williams interview in the Boston Globe article by Richard Dyer :

Since Williams was busy working on HOOK at the same time, he actually wrote and recorded much of this music in advance. From a 1992 Boston Globe article by Richard Dyer:

For "JFK," Williams worked in a way that was almost unique in his experience. He wrote six musical sequences, which were recorded in full before he had seen the entire film. "After the Pops season last summer, I went down to New Orleans where Oliver Stone, the director, was still shooting the movie, and I saw about an hour's worth of cut material and some of the dailies. I thought his handling of Lee Harvey Oswald was particularly strong, and I understood some of the atmosphere of the film -- the sordid elements, the underside of New Orleans."

After Williams had scored and recorded his sequences, Stone cut the film to the music, or to the parts of the music he decided to use. This is the way the classic collaboration of Eisenstein and Prokofiev worked on "Alexander Nevsky," but only once before has Williams had a similar opportunity, when Spielberg recut the end of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" in order to synchonize with the logic of the music. "In `JFK,' the music is cut up, in a documentary fashion; a musical sequence that may have lasted seven minutes on the recording lasts a minute or two in the film. On the CD, however, the score is presented in full, as pieces of music," Williams points out.

The musical sequences Williams wrote include a Kennedy Theme, a Conspirator's Piece, a Motorcade Sequence, Garrison's Obsession and an Arlington Sequence. Into the lyrical Kennedy theme Williams implanted an Irish lilt. Williams describes the motorcade music as "repetitious." "It spins out in a minimalistic way -- my hope was that Oliver Stone could be led into the pace of the sequence by the rhythms of the music. It is strongly kinetic music, music of interlocking rhythmic disciplines." For another sequence, Williams used Scottish drum patterns, drawing on his memory of the Black Watch at the Kennedy funeral. "And then I had big Japanese bass drums thundering along and exploding to accentuate the cuts." The meditative "Arlington" sequence is scored mostly for strings, but there is also a long soliloquy for solo horn.

Like most Americans who lived through that terrible time, Williams can remember the moment he learned of the assassination of the president. "I woke up late in the morning when someone came into my room to tell me that President Kennedy had been shot. I switched on the television to follow the reporting. It was my first recollection as an adult of weeping; I was in my 30s, and I hadn't cried in decades. This is a very resonant subject for people of my generation, and that's why I welcomed the opportunity to participate in this film."

Cool. I usually enjoy Debney' work.

MV said on the PR thread for Caprica, Warriors, and Red 2 that the 13th of August will bring more releases, which means we should be getting an announcement in a few days. If I remember correctly, one will be Frederik Weidmann's (fantastic) score to Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox.

That's a pretty busy schedule considering KICK-ASS 2 is on the 20th.

Well then, it's probably the announcements coming on the 13th and the titles on the 20th. I don't think he's ever had new releases AND announcements for the next week on the same day.

JFK


Is there music in JFK not on the album?


But there are alternate takes and performances (some of the alternate arrangements were utilized when he played JFK with the Pops), plus additional music by tomandandy. Not to mention all the source music, like the great Brent Lewis tracks (only one of which ended up on the album). Curious how Williams' "Rope Bridge" cue from Temple Of Doom sounds so much like one of those Brent Lewis tracks, though I thought his Indy score came first. Who knows.

August releases on the 13th and 27th would make the most sense since LLL tend to release every other week.

Yeah, it's the 13th. I was originally told the 20th but we all know how quickly things can change in this hobby.

From LLL Facebook

Upcoming Retail release schedule:

While our Limited Edition line of cd's is unpredictable, we can usually rely on our retail releases since they need to be close the films release date, video games debut, or television premiere.

So, here is a heads up on some great new titles we have coming out via retail channels in the next few months

August 13 (on website and in stores same day)

KICK ASS 2 - fantastic original score by Henry Jackman and Matthew Margeson. This rip roarin' score expands upon the themes of the first film and makes for a deeper and richer listening experience. (I'll be honest with you, this is my favorite score this summer. I can't get enough of it!)

August 27 (on website. Sept 10 in stores)

JOBS - score by John Debney. This a an emotional and inspiring score akin to Debney's work on PASSION OF THE CHRIST and DRAGONFLY. Really powerful stuff.

OCTOBER 8 (on website. Oct 15 in stores)

GRIMM - we are very excited to be working with NBC UNIVERSAL on the soundtrack for the hit tv series scored by Richard Marvin (U571, Six Feet Under). The soundtrack will be out just in time for the series 3rd season debut on October 25.

That's it for now regarding our upcoming slate of regular retail releases. Be sure to always check our facebook page for information regarding ALL of our upcoming releases

from facebook:

Sorry for the delay. We were waiting to find out if a certain release was going to be ready for shipment, but alas, it was not meant to be released on Aug 13. And, since we don't believe in taking people's money before the product is in house (or at least imminent in its arrival) we will be releasing this "ONE" soundtrack at a later date.

In the meantime, we do have one "KICK ASS" release coming at ya next Tuesday, Aug 13, 2013 at 12 pm NOON pst

KICK ASS 2
... Music by Henry Jackman and Matthew Margeson
LLLCD 1272
Retail Price: $15.98

Produced by Henry Jackman and Matthew Margeson
Mastered by Patricia Sullivan at Bernie Grundman Mastering
Art Direction by Dan Goldwasser

Presenting the original motion picture score to the all-new feature film Kick-Ass 2, starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Jim Carrey, directed by Jeff Wadlow. Acclaimed composers Henry Jackman (This Is The End, Wreck It Ralph, X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass) and Matthew Margeson (Transformers Prime, Skyline, Burning Palms) back the highly-anticipated return of the unconventional heroic duo Kick-Ass and Hit Girl with a full-throttle, super-charged action score as they face-off once more against the vengeful-minded Red Mist. This score is a sonic blast - and the perfect compliment to this rip-roaring, big-screen sequel to the original cult smash Kick-Ass. This CD release contains great liner notes by composers and director as well as additional music not available on the digital download version.

Kick-Ass 2 opens in theaters nationwide August 16, 2013.

The first 100 or so customers who purchase the cd directly through the La-La Land website will receive an autographed booklet signed by co-composer Matthew Margeson. As always, quantities are limited and you are NOT guaranteed a signed edition.

The cd can be ordered at www.lalalandrecords.com starting at 12 pm pst Aug 13, 2013

See y'all next week!

Funny how that word "ONE" happens to be an anagram for "NEO", huh? wink

I think he was referring to the soundtrack to Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, which was supposed to be released early August. At least it is coming from LLL soon.

No, not flailing. August was mentioned as the release time for Reloaded and we all know it's coming. And Neo does happen to be "The One", and there's a reason "one" is all capitalized and in quotation marks there.

Flailing would be me anticipating a complete James Bond box set because "ONE" also happens to be an anagram for "EON" which stands for "Everything or Nothing" and happens to be the production company of the James Bond franchise. Fortunately, I'm not getting my hopes up for that, haha.

Good point. Didn't notice that emphasis on the word ONE. It's been a while since I've seen Reloaded, so I don't remember the music, but it's Don Davis so it will probably be some great stuff. I recently watched The Flashpoint Paradox and I gotta say, that got me excited for the score release. The music at the end when Flash starts running with an injured leg - great stuff. You don't hear that in cartoons much anymore.

Reloaded really is great stuff. One of my all-time favorites. I haven't seen The Flashpoint Paradox, but I'm a fan of the DC animated music by the B:TAS crew and Christopher Drake, so I'll definitely check out the samples when it comes out.

Sounds like plenty more titles on the way that will soon end up refreshing LLL's burgeoning cut-price offerings.

I'm all for constructive criticism, but this is merely unpleasantness for it's own sake.
