John Williams, London Symphony Orchestra
"Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark Original Soundtrack" (Vinyl)

This wouldn't ordinarily be anything that I troubled to collect, but somehow owning some of Mr. Williams' biggest hits on vinyl was hilarious. Especially when it cost me $1.00

Having played some of this music live in concert I can't say I support any position that claims Mr. Williams as an important voice in American music, but I will say that Mr. Williams has done more than his share to ensure that the symphony continues to play into the 22nd century, if for no other reason than people will always pay to hear "Star Wars" and "Harry Potter" played live.
