John Williams and Russ Ballard

With the Internet abuzz about J.J. Abrams now being slated to direct a Star Wars movie in addition to directing this year’s Star Trek movie (and likely at least producing one after that), now might be a good time to read about the first two movies for which John Williams did the scores: the ever-so-slightly-dated Daddy-O and I Passed for White.

And here, on a tantalizingly almost-New-Wave but-kinda-classic-rock note, it’s Russ Ballard’s “Voices.”

All that may seem as dated as a black and white photo of a banjo-playing cat (h/t Gerard Perry), but wait until you see tomorrow’s even more old-timey entry.
