This is a comments thread about FSM CD: The Accidental Tourist

Once I had a copy of the original release in my hand, at a used cd store in the 90's. I passed after previewing it, thinking it too sad. What a mistake!

I'm so glad I have the FSM, because it's one of the too-few examples of the wonderful and interesting sounds that JW could make when he wasn't being King of the Movie Franchises.

You are so correct about this one.

This is my favorite John Williams score.

It was mine for many years as well, and still sits in my Top 5 fro him.

Hey ! I was just playing this the whole day! What a gem of a score.

Yup, it's the kind of JW I prefer to listen to these days, THE ACCIDENTAL TOURIST, STANLEY & IRIS, PETE & TILLIE, ANGELA'S ASHES, that kind of stuff.

I had a CD-R of the original, rare CD in the 90s -- being unable to afford it -- untill Nils traded an original CD with me in the early 2000s. I never upgraded to the subsequent FSM, however.

I picked this up recently for $1.99 and discuss it in my "Onya Birr's John Williams Journey" thread.

It's one of my all-time favourites too. I was very happy that David Newman talked about this score quite extensively (especially about the final scene) in my recent podcast conversation with him:

(it's toward the end of the episode, around 1h 7mins)

That's a really nice interview, Maurizio. Not to dampen the compliment at all, but I think it must be hard to have a bad interview with David Newman. He's a natural educator, and genuinely exuberant when he talks about this stuff.

The FSM version was helpful in answering the mystery of “The Wedding Scene” and how it appears in the film. Among my favorite Williams scores and the best of his “piano scores.”

Yes, Newman is such a good interview. And thanks for putting a volume bar on the embedded audio. I can't believe that still isn't a mandatory feature.

My original Warner CD sits in my safe with John Williams’ autograph on it. When I presented it to him after his Pittsburgh concert in 2003 he kind of gasped and said “I didn’t think anyone remembered this!” I’m glad I choose that score to have signed as it generated a nice little conversation with him and an experience I will never forget

It's always been among my favorite Williams' scores as well; ever since seeing the original trailer of the movie even. (That just convinced me of the music.)

Lucky you! That's a swell memory.
