JANE EYRE
MUSIC BY JOHN WILLIAMS
LLLCD 1214
LIMITED EDITION OF 2000 UNITS
Retail Price: $19.98

REISSUE PRODUCED BY LUKAS KENDALL
MASTERED BY DOUG SCHWARTZ AT MULLHOLLAND MUSIC
LINER NOTES BY JEFF ELDRIDGE
ART DIRECTION BY JIM TITUS

La La Land Records and Capitol Records are proud to reissue one of John Williams greatest scores, JANE EYRE, from the 1971 film starring George C Scott and Susannah York. For this CD reissue engineer Doug Schwartz worked from the ¼” 2 track stereo album masters from the Capitol EMI vault. The stunning 24 page booklet by Jim Titus features in depth liner notes by Williams historian Jeff Eldridge as well as reprints the notes from the original LP package. Sadly the complete recorded score has been lost to the ages and all that has survived is the LP masters. The tracks are identical to previous releases, but the sound has been greatly improved and Jim’s packaging is worth the price alone! While not the “definitive edition” we had hoped for, this release sure packs a wallop! If you never owned this score now is the time to pick it up!

All three titles go on sale next Tuesday at 1 pm at www.lalalandrecords.com and other fine online stores.

Oh dear. Words like 'yikes' and 'wallet' come to mind. And what's more, there's a hole in my pocket.

A dig at Varese?

Wasn't Jane Eyre the one that FSM said you had to have (even though it was oop and going for big bucks) or you couldn't really call yourself a REAL Williams fan?

The announcement would be in two weeks (assuming, of course, that it is Star Trek: TMP).

Very much looking forward to Jane Eyre - I've heard nothing but good things, yet somehow I've never heard a second of it.

I'm surprised that Jane Eyre is only pressed at 2,000 copies. I know it's a reissue, but it's been OOP for so long, I imagine this one would sell rather quickly since it is a Williams.

These things seem so hard to judge. It took Intrada ages to sell out of CINDERELLA LIBERTY and MONSIGNOR at 3000 copies each*, and neither of those had been on CD (legitimately) before, whereas SPACECAMP (which had been on CD before, though admittedly on a scarce Japanese import) sold out overnight.

*See also Varese's HEARTBEEPS.

Williams' second Emmy-winner is well worth a listen.

Funny - as I was watching a featurette about the music of Sorcery, the ad on the side of the page was for Starhawk - both of LLL's video game releases coming Tuesday.

Is Warning Shot coming from LLL? MV made a certain remark on this thread:

http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=88994&forumID=1&archive=0

After Preston Neal Jones posted:
Coming later this month from Vocalion, the British CD outfit=

Double album of Si Zentner: "From Russia With Love," featuring assorted TV and movie themes of the late 50's, early 60's, with "Warning Shot," a six-movement suite from Jerry Goldsmith's score for that film, along with a sampling of his other TV movie themes, and, for good measure, don't ask me why, the classic movie-pop song, "Mona Lisa."

Available now for pre-order at Amazon.

(The label also offers a number of Geoff Love movie tune anthologies, including "Big War Movie," which was the only way I could hear Rozsa's "Green Berets" theme -- until Lukas Kendall was born.)

MV replied with:

You might wanna hold off on buying this Warning Shot.

I'm just sayin' wink

MV

Sure sounds like LLL (or at least some other label of which MV has certain knowledge) will be releasing Warning Shot!

This saves me some typing time (posted on the JWFAN site)

Re: Jane Eyre:

By: Miguel Andrade

There are two bootlegs for "Jane Eyre". The first predates the Silva Screen reissue. The content is the original (and surviving) program, plus the concert suite as prepared for Williams (and recorded with the Boston Pops Orchestra in the late 80's), a recording of the scherzo "To Thornfield", as conducted by Charles Gerhardt, and five more tracks with excerpts from "Thomas and the King", "Yes Giorgio", "SpaceCamp", "Born on the Fourth of July" and "Midway".
The second bootleg, calling it self as a "75th birthday edition" but i never saw it before last year, has again the original program, but tracks are sliced so it looks to have much more cues than it really has. Besides that, includes again the re-recordings, and again listing them as alternates, plus a section of tracks referred to as "period and source pieces" that are nothing more than English tinted selection culled from ever imaginable source but never from any lost recording session -- even included is a track from the above mentioned CD "Pops Britannia".
If you ask me, they are both worthless.

As for re-recordings, Williams did record the concert suite on "Pops Britannia" (on Philips Classics) but is sadly out of print. Gerhardt recorded the scherzo for his old Reader's Digest LPs and was included on a Varese Sarabande release "The Prince and the Pauper" (along with the End Credits" from "The Reivers" and a number of other film music classics.) Keisuke Wakao recording is indeed lovely, but not arranged by Williams.
Also, not arranged by Williams -- not sure who transcribed it, as I'm not at home -- is the suite as recorded by Silva Screen in Prague, Nic Raine conducting. It follows the overall structure of the concert suite, but they went to the original versions for that recording. It was available on the 4-CD set on Williams music they released a few years ago -- on the new 6-CD set I believe they only included one track.

Jane Eyre is Williams at his lyrical best. The album's a feast of melody. I'll be very happy to upgrade.

Miguel / MV is completely correct. All Jane Eyre boots just feature re-recordings that had appeared on compilation CDs as the extra tracks - nothing extra from the actual film sessions has ever surfaced. They appear to truly be completely lost to time.

Hmmmm... what is MV's new avatar? I can't see it very well.

Looks like the cover for STARHAWK.
