An Owner's Review of Midway by John Williams

(4 out of 5 stars)
"I am an avid collector of rare film scores. With over 180 scores in my collection, I know my subject quite well. John Williams' masterful score for the 1976 film "Midway" is an excellent contribution to war-genre films. Of course, this particular CD is not the original release.....actually there was no original release save for one or two songs that could be found on other CD's. This one happens to be a (COMPLETE) 1998 re-recording but the orchestration is PRACTICALLY IDENTICAL to what you hear in the film itself (I know becasue I've seen the movie more times than I'd like to admit and I always pay particular attention to the music). Others have reviewed this CD by saying it is inferior to the original recording.....um, sorry fellas, but you are incorrect. Besides, the notes included with the artwork explain that there was no original release (Just like I said).
If you are a fan of John Williams' music from Midway then you will not be dissapointed with this release at all, especially the Midway March and the Men of the Yorktown March.......buy it anyway considering how rare this CD is!
