Fantastic release, worthy of the fanfare it presents.

If anyone does not have this, I strongly advise the purchase.

Williams wrote an eight- and five-note motif for Krypton (the latter represented mystery, suspense, danger and was also used as a motif for kryptonite). I wonder if this five-note motif was one of the hundreds of such motifs he composed and didn't use for CLOSE ENCOUNTERS?

7 note theme.

No, his mystery/danger motif for Krypton is 5 notes.

Is there any good reason to get this set if you already own the FSM blue box? Its always sounded great to my ears.

Well, it's from first rather than second generation masters and includes the never before heard alternate of The Fortress of Solitude. But how much of an improvement is enough of an improvement is really a personal choice.

Does Archer have that much music? I like the spy knockoff theme, but I don't hear very much music in the show.

You have the show??

There’s just shy of 20 minutes of music from Archer, and the theme gets a good workout.

The Baton: A John Williams Musical Journey

Episode 50 - Superman
November 20, 2019
The 50th episode of The Baton is here! And what better way to mark the occasion than a discussion of one of the most popular film scores in history. Possibly the only part of making Superman that went without a major hitch was the composition and recording of the iconic score. This was just 18 months after John Williams' score for Star Wars showed his mastery of creating music for characters that found its way into the mainstream. Host Jeff Commings is joined by Doug Grieve, a trombone player who talks about the composition of the music for the opening titles and the introduction to the planet Krypton. In this opening six minutes of the film, Williams creates music that excites, mystifies and exalts, all with the use of carefully selected musical intervals. Learn more about this super score on this episode of The Baton.

I'll never forgive the Greater Soundtrack Community for getting their hands on the Superman remaster before I did.

Tough year. At least I get to do Monsignor at the same time.

All jazzed for this.

Anyone still listening a year later? Wanna tell me how much improvement has been accomplished?
