I've been on a bit of a film score kick lately and the sheer volume of John Williams scores is pretty intimidating. So here's where I ask your help in recommending the best of the best.
So far I've got:
Everything related to SW (the SE soundtracks, the prequel soundtracks, the E1 UE soundtrack, and the long-vanished CT boxed set)
ET: The Extra-Terrestrial (SE)
Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone
The Lost World: Jurassic Park
John Williams' Greatest Hits 1969-1999
I have Superman on an old cassette and plan to buy the expanded 2-CD edition of that soundtrack next. I also know I definitely want Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Jaws, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (unfortunately the only Indy soundtrack in print).
A friend of mine has recommended the following, not all of which I'm familiar with:
Empire of the Sun
Home Alone 2
Far and Away
Okay, what else would y'all recommend, and is there anything to definitely avoid?
