6 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Reginald D. Garrard VINE VOICE on January 21, 2007
Having been one of the much sought-after film composers of the last three decades, John Williams has built up a repertoire of scores that immensely added to the films that they accompanied. One cannot think of "Star Wars," "Jaws," "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," "Superman-The Movie," or the Indiana Jones trilogy without hearing Williams' dynamic and timeless melodies. Unfortunately, the three films represented on this disc are not the composer at his best and didn't age well. They sound too much like the 70's, especially the score to "The Paper Chase," complete with period mid-tempo rock, blended on some cuts with classical compositions. The "Conrack" excerpt sounds like a holdover from "Room 222," a television series that had Jerry Goldsmith at the musical helm.

Even the best of the three, "The Poseidon Adventure," itself is rather mundane and, unlike a good score, can't stand on its own without the movie images.

Williams actually did better music for his television collaborations ("Lost in Space," "The Time Tunnel," "Land of the Giants") with Irwin Allen, the producer of "Poseidon."

The sound quality is poor, as if it were recorded "open air" with a home mike, from a turntable spinning.

This three-score set is solely for those collectors of John's work but cannot be recommended for those that want to hear the composer triumphantly.
