La-La Land has announced their June batch of releases, which are now available to order: a two-disc edition of John Williams' popular score for the original JURASSIC PARK; an expanded two-disc edition of James Horner's score for the third Jack Ryan film, CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER; and a re-release of their expanded edition of Horner's previous Jack Ryan score, PATRIOT GAMES.


The latest release from Quartet is a remastered reissue of Jerry Fielding's score for Sam Peckinpah's BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA.


Vintage John Wiliams quote of the week, from a Films and Filming intervew by Derek Elley, in 1978:

"Early next year I may also do a project called Alien, directed by Ridley Scott."

Goldsmith's Alien is one of my all-time favorite pieces of film music, but it's fascinating to ponder how Williams might have aproached the project. At the time of the interview he was composing the score for Superman, and the article mentions that he was also set to work on Quintet and Meteor, both of which were ultimately scored by other composers (Tom Pierson and Laurence Rosenthal, respectively). It has long amused me that during that period he was shrewed enough to bail on The Sentinel, Quintet, Meteor, Inchon and Heaven's Gate, but still ended up scoring Heartbeeps and Monsignor. It's almost as if his agent told him he couldn't bail on every bad film, or else it might seem like he was cheating.
