I just now checked out the sample clips from The Matrix Reloaded and not only is the quality better compared to the boot but so is the over all mixing. The mixing is a 100x's better and more natural. I'm really looking forward to hearing the whole thing!

The WB logo doesn't bother me, though it's unfortunate it's directly over the head of a character on both covers. I would have placed Wyatt Earp off center. (then again I don't care for that shot to begin with) They really didn't have a choice with the Matrix photo. Though at the end of the day these are grail releases, and I would purchase them regardless what covers looked like. smile

The Jobs samples sounds great. Great batch of releases. I wonder how long the Matrix will last? Really hoping to pick that up soon.

Jobs could have been so much more. The main titles are delightful but most of the rest of the score is typical low-key dramatic scoring.

My birthday was on the 28th and I wasn't able to see any family this year. La La Land made it better. Thanks again guys.

Quite curious about the final track on Disc 3 of Wyatt Earp - 'It's A Boy/JNH Speech'.

I've heard a recording of a speech he made to his team after the final recording session for King Kong. Wonder if this is a similar thing.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Cheers.

Got shipping notice for all three today so fingers crossed should arrive around next Friday...

Have itchy ears for this batch - but they are currently being placated by Star Trek Insurrection, Hallelujah Trail & Rio Conchos so they are being kept happy until LLL package arrives.
Looking forward to blasting Matrix: Reloaded at them and then soothing them with Wyatt Earp smile

---------
During the recording, JNH's wife/partner gave birth to his son. He left the sessions for two days and his good friend Randy Newman took over. I'm assuming 'It's A Boy' is when the musicians and crew were told the news.

Before recording the final cue, JNH made a speech thanking everyone for their work over the three weeks of the recording and saying what a special time it had been for him. He got loud applause.

Tim Burden did an interview with James Newton Howard recently. I've heard an exerpt on Facebook and the speech iwas included at the end.

Hey, Wyatt Earp question for MV:

You've talked about how early 90s elements can be problematic to locate and use, did this one have any such problems?

Just curious. Thank you for your time.

Nope, not on this one.

Over the past few years we have been fortunate enough to work with various studios and composers who have taken the time (and money) to locate all these elements, transfer them over and have them easily at anyone's disposal (even some of the time we are the ones footin' the bill!). Composers like Mr. Zimmer, Mr. Howard and Mr. Silvestri pretty much have their entire library in house now. It also helps when you have wonderful "keepers of the grail" at the studios who help keep all this amazing stuff up to date and easy to find. Guys like Chris Mangione at Warners and Nick Redman at Fox are the unsung heroes in this business.

However, there are times when stuff just goes missing. One project we just completed contains 99% of incredible sounding music, but that last 1% had to come from the music stems so we can make that project "whole."

The 1990's was a strange decade indeed.

Is this similar to Hook? I for one can't really notice much difference between the 'bad' tracks on your release and the rest of the score, and I'm usually pretty picky about sound quality.

No, not as extreme as Hook. Just one or two tracks, but Mike Matessino worked his magic and it still sounds great, at least to our ears and the composers. smile

Big thanks to LLL for sending along the autographed cover art. My order came in 10 seconds after the official autograph cutoff. Made my day smile

The Matrix Reloaded arrived! Not only is it a wonderfully packaged album (who would have expected less?), but Don Davis' signature is incredibly legible! Thanks again LLL.

I also wanted to get Wyatt Earp, but I really have to prioritize right now, and the autographed copies of The Matrix Reloaded won me over to their side. smile
