I've just opened the cigar box (again) and the stong beer is flowing.

2010 is indeed a massive year for "classic" soundtrack releases/re-releases.

Thanks! I just ordered it.
But including the second disc is a waste, and inconsistent with the ST 2 release.


As someone else just noted, there probably wasn't even an option with this, since EMI owned the original album rights, not Warner like for Wrath of Khan. Remember those Bond expanded scores? Lukas had to include the original album presentation first, and then fit what bonus tracks he could after that. Would you have preferred he do that in this case? I don't think so! I don't think even all of the alternates would have fit, because unlike Wrath of Khan many cues on the original album were not the versions actually used in the film. Even if it weren't dictated by licensing reasons, I would've preferred this as a two disc set because I wanted all the alternate versions.

I am quite ecstatic about the release. The inclusion of the original LP program doesn't bother me at all because as I recall (and this has just been confirmed by looking at the track listing, this was a case where I ordered first, asked questions later) there are quite a few alternate versions on there, such as "Klingons" and "Returning to Vulcan," and while I certainly would want the film versions, not at the expense of a remastered version of the tracks I've known for years.

And the inclusion of the Johnny Mercer source music track is a nice bonus, in my opinion.

You know, these complaints of "Disk 2 is a waste" assumes that everyone has the GNP Star Trek III disk.

My only complaint about this release is that I don't have it here to listen to yet.

This is very cool. Thank you guys.

I do hope that the really fully complete-and-alternates Star Trek The Motion Picture might one day come to complete the trilogy.

But for now, I say again - this is very cool.

Cheers

Fan-f&$*ing-tastic! No complaints on this one and ordered. Now, lets slowly but surely get all the rest of the scores from the original Motion Picture trilogy out in expanded form!

The defiant rendition of Horner's Trek theme in the "Stealing the Enterprise" cue is one of my favorite film music moments ever. The "call and answer" screaming horns leading up to that moment send a chill up my spine every time.

I used to drive around San Francisco blasting that piece from my car stereo, over and over again.

Oh, and who else thinks that this version has more attractive artwork than the LP?

This is awesome news. I'm still getting used to it.

And also, not all the albums got expanded (something I've always wondered about). One on the shopping list, along with the previous release...

I knew that sticking with my original LP and holding off on purchasing a CD copy for a couple of decades would finally pay off!

Can't wait to hear the gorgeous "Returning to Vulcan" cue remastered on CD.

Well, it'll have to be Portland, since we no longer live in the SF Bay Area, but the sentiment's the same. :-)

Give the man the cigar..

The First Fanboy bitchng about this release within Three minutes of the first posting.

It's the best of both worlds, if you liked the album version, you get it.

If you want to the expanded score, you get that...


And you only have to pay an additional $5.00 for the 2nd CD...


Not a bad deal for those of us wanting this sort of release for the last 26 years....


Ford A. Thaxton


Amen to that !!!

TWOK and this CD will look and sound very nice next to each other.

Unfortunately, it means I have another frisbee to get rid of (the GNP release, which I love BTW).

The issue with expanded releases is what to do with the original.

BTW Ford, I remember when you sent me the track listing (way back, so you probably don't remember me) for ST:TMP. I was under the name Bootsektor or something then (what was I thinking with that alias?).

I wanted to thank you for that, as well as the work you did on that release.

Next stop: Star Trek V Expanded wink

Look at that... a 2-CD-Set!

Just ordered!

One thing is that while that second disc includes four tracks from the original album that "differ from version in the motion picture", the other four tracks do not, and thus 17 minutes (tracks 4,5,7 and 8) are duplicated on the first disc?

Probably, the cost of an extra CD with exactly the same music is less than 1$ and it's just used to justify the difference of price with the previous release (maybe they had to pay more for rights or something). Think of it as a $24.95 CD with a bonus disc. That's ok for me

What I can't understand is why SAE and some other retailers still charge an extra CD shipping for releases like this, considering that the diference in weight is negligible. It was understandable for that old big 2CD cases but now it looks like an additional source of income

Which I and may others already have (mine's the Silva issue, which I'll admit doesn't have that disco track on it - not that thats' a bad thing). Not sure how it's the best of both worlds to have to pay extra for something I already have in order to get something new (17 minutes of which are already on the one I already have)..... smile

Okay, maybe the sound quality's better, but I didn't know KING SOLOMON'S MINES was at the wrong speed, I still can't tell what the problem is with GI JOE and I spent many years completely unaware that THE FUGITIVE channels are the wrong way round....
