The John Williams Harry Potter set and The Planet of the Apes are amomg my favourite collectibles. I really appreciate LLL using sturdy cardboard exteriors for these deluxe sets, making them stand out from any soundtrack collection.

What franchise or series are you hoping that gets released one day by LLL (or another label) in a deluxe high quality boxset? smile

My pie-in-the-sky? Indiana Jones.

Probability seems low, but it would be a dream box set. Especially if Mike Matessino and the esteemed Mr. Bulk were involved.

Jim Titus would also be a first choice for artwork of course.

All of these would be great (if probably unlikely).

Columbo is particularly high on my list, especially since nearly all of my Holy Grail feature scores have actually been released.

I seem to remember LLL saying they weren't going to release any more box sets...

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. Complete!

- Short of that, an Indiana Jones box sounds interesting, but the only scores I truly love are Raiders and Grail.

- Columbo would be awesome in two sets.

- Kolchak would be a dream come true, but that would be a two or three CD set at most I reckon.

About half of those titles were actually released by Paramount.

I would like to see a box set of John Williams' Concert Works and Media compositions. Basically, all of his non-film work in a box.

Never gonna happen, but a box of some Williams TV music. Especially ALCOA and KRAFT.

Or how about a set of just Bernard Herrmann at Paramount/Universal with the Herrmanns listed above plus Cape Fear and whatever else he did for those studios at that time. That said, I do like the idea of a Hitchcock-themed set.

Never gonna happen, but a box of some Williams TV music. Especially ALCOA and KRAFT.

I'll second this 100%. Even if film music fans have no idea about these anthology shows, I think that the John Williams name is guaranteed sales for any label that feels like tackling them. And we know that LLL has been able to access the Universal TV vaults just this past year, with the excellent 2CD Jack Marshall release.

I would LOVE to get a box set (at least 4CDs, but I'd love 6-8CDs if possible) for WAGON TRAIN, for which Williams wrote at least half an dozen original scores (and Goldsmith wrote two).

I'll also echo the requests for Columbo. By my calculations the complete original series scores should be able to fit on say a 10CD set -- that could be two combined clamshell cases along the lines of FSM's Ben-Hur 5CD set.

The scores for the revival show which began in the late 80s are much more variable in quality and I think only the very best scores should be released complete, with maybe selections of the best cues from some of the other scores. I think a 4CD set along the lines of Wild Wild West (or what modern Trek series get) would make sense as a follow-up release if the original series box is successful. There is some precedent for LLL doing this: they gave the original Mission: Impossible series a gorgeous 6CD release in a fancy hard box, and then followed it up with a simpler 2CD set (one disc full of Lalo Schifrin, and the other disc full of Ron Jones) for the late 80s revival series which only lasted a couple of seasons.

But if we are hopin' and dreamin', what I REALLY want and have wanted for a long time now is a big box set of everything surviving for Erich Wolfgang Korngold at Warner Bros. The amazing 2CD set FSM released with the complete scores for The Sea Wolf and Kings Row really whetted my appetite and I think it's so sad especially that we don't have a polished and licensed release of the original film recording of The Sea Hawk (my favorite EWK score) under Korngold's baton. I'm also kind of shocked that the complete original recording of Robin Hood has never been released on album (just as an edited isolated score track).

Oh, and throw in a 5CD Roy Webb at RKO set while you're at it, La-La Land! wink I mean, FSM did that 5CD David Raksin set so we know that the impossible is possible...
