A Ben-Hur or Superman blue box style release of the complete music to the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films. Using the same tem that transferred & mastered the Star Trek TMP last year. Go right back to the multitracks as they did. New heads for the playback equipment - again as they did for TMP. The red carpet treatment! With a bonus high-res 24/96 version on a Bluray disc (similar to what happened with the complete Lord of the Rings bonus discs). Well I can dream... wink

How many releases of these scores has there already been, surely you can make do with what you have already? I mean, how much extra music can there be? I'd rather have something new than another release of something I already have the best of! The sound quality isn't that dire on the existing releases either.

Well technically, STAR WARS and EMPIRE STRIKES BACK could do with a remix, and RETURN OF THE JEDI's SE release sound could do with a major improvement. None of them sound amazing, so while much of the music in there, it's not there in the quality I'd personally like.

Lots of great suggestions here!

9) Indiana Jones Quadrilogy (Be all to end all edition)

This is one of my personal grails (heh) as well, though not with the name "Quadrilogy," but I'd dearly love a complete "Tetralogy" set - or even better still, just "The Complete Adventures," featuring every note from all four films and the entirety of the TV series. big grin

John Williams: Star Trek Prequel Trilogy [Complete Boxset]

That list is dangerously close to mine

So, you both want Johnny's music to the Star Trek prequel trilogy as well, huh? I can't wait to hear what the maestro does for those missions with Christopher Pike...

Young Sherlock Holmes
Psycho 2 (complete)

 By:   ScottDS   (Member)

I'm thankful for everything the labels have produced thus far (indeed, this list is getting smaller all the time!)...

...having said that:

-the usual Varese suspects:
--Predator 2 (this one needs a remastering - at least the other titles sound good)
--Star Trek: Nemesis
--Executive Decision
--Chain Reaction
--Air Force One (+ McNeely and Newman)
--Starship Troopers
--RoboCop 2
--RoboCop 3
--Looney Tunes: Back in Action
--Hollow Man

--Police Academy (this became my #1 holy grail after the complete ST: TMP was released and I'd be happy with a 2- or 3-disc compilation)
--The Mummy (complete)
--The Mummy Returns (complete)
--Young Sherlock Holmes (complete)
--Alien 3 (complete... fat chance, I know... though I'd be perfectly happy with the isolated score track from the Blu-Ray put on disc)
--Batman and Robin (ditto)
--Clean Slate (too bad comedy scores don't sell well)
--Baby's Day Out (ditto)
--Fatal Instinct (ditto)
--Star Trek: Insurrection (only a matter of time!)

As for Star Wars and Indy, I'd love to see these get the definitive presentations they deserve but I'm satisfied with what I have right now.

Well, since it's a wish List...

I could make a Wish List 2,000 pixles long, but let me try my best okeep it short:

"Zachariah" (Jimmie Haskell)
"Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here" (Dave Grusin, plus the two rejected scores)
"Duel" (Billy Goldenberg)
"Darker Than Amber" (John Parker)
"P.J." (Neal Hefti, plus the two rejected scores)
"Something Wicked this Way Comes" (rejected, Delerue; the complete score, from the superior master tapes Intrada says exist [same kind Horner recorded on])
"Coming to America" (Nile Rodgers; if he scored the failed TV pilot, that, too)
"Beverly Hills Cop III" (Nile Rodgers)
"Joe Somebody" (Geroge S. Clinton)
"The Crush" (Graeme Revell; a nice smaller orchestra score, with piano)
"Romeo + Juliet" (Craig Armstrong; score only, complete, not dialogue excerpts)
"Ghostbusters" (Elmer Bernstein; with the seven or eight missing minutes of score, and a better mastering than the Varese edition)
"Steel Magnolias" (Delerue, plus what amount Shire recorded for his rejected score; unless Varese holds it in perpetuity)
"Gladiator" (rejected, Goldsmith; I've not heard Fiedel's replacement)
"A Few Days At Weasel Creek" (Horner)
"The Pursuit of D.B. Cooper" (Horner)
"Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" (David Newman)
"Sandlot" (David Newman; the full score, not the half-score Varese offered us in their sold out Club release)
"Tommy Boy" (David Newman)
"Physco 4" (Graeme Revell)
"South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut" (Marc Shaiman)
"Holyman" (Silvestri)
"The Quick and the Dead" (Silvestri. complete)
"Ferris Bueller's Day Off" (Ira Newborn)
"Plains, Trains, and Automobiles" (Ira Newnorn)
"The Naked Gun 331/2" (Ira Newborn)
"Titanic" (compelte score, plus all those un-used and laternate cues; too bad Sony won't do it or let anybody else)
"Guilty As Sin" (Howard Shore)
"When Eight Bells Toll" (Angela Morley)
"Call Me Bwana" (Muir Mathieson and Monty Norman)
"Ride A Crooked Trail" (Stanley Wilson, some stock music by others)

From the Earth to the Moon" (Kamen's efforts, though a box set would be terrific)
"Family Guy" (Ron Jones and Walter Murphy)
"American Dad" (Ron Jones, Walter Murphy, Joel McNeely)
"Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" (William Olvis, David Bell)
"Salem's Lot" (Harry Sukman)
"The Simpsons" (Richard Gibbs, Arthur B. Bubenstein, Tom Scott, Alf Clausen; even those it's been over two decades of episodes, each episode only has about five minutes of score)
"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (Thomas Wanker's and Robert Duncan's efforts)
"Samurai Jack" (James L. Venable & Paul Dinletir)
"CHiPs" (season one scores, by various composers:
"Gunsmoke" (so many great scores, from John Parker, to Richard Shores, others)
"The Quest" (Richard Shores, others; short one-season series)
"12 O'clock High" (Dominic Frontiere)
"Batman" (Nelson Riddle, Warren Baker. I didn't like Billy May's efforts)
"Dynasty" (Bill Conti, Dennis McCarthy, Gerald Fried, others composers -- some great stuff)
"In the Heat of the Night" (a few compsoers, but David Bell was a particular favorite)
"Magnum, pi" (Mike Post & Pete Capenter mainly)
"Nash Bridges" (Eddie Jobson's work mainly)

I think I'm not forgetting anything that I just HAD to include...

"Nash Bridges" (Eddie Jobson's work mainly)

Wow! I'm not alone. Jobson once said there were plans for a soundtrack, as both he and Don Johnson wanted to do one. However, they were just too busy to give it their full attention while the show was on, and that after the show ended it seemed too late to bother with. I'd definitely buy one, though, and would love some of Elia Cmiral's music from the first season as well.

A complete or expanded re-recording of QBVII from Tadlow would pretty much rock my world.

I'm not greedy I'll settle for Trevor Jones 1992 score to FREEJACK.

Well, now that you mentioned it... Ditto! :-)

On a side note, will you keep your name when your grail ultimately arrives?

Hi everyone. Long time reader, first time poster here.

My wish list for complete / deluxe editions for 2013 (and beyond) are as follows...

Jerry Goldsmith - Star Trek: Insurrection / Star Trek: Nemesis
Ira Newborn - Naked Gun trilogy
Basil Poledouris - The Hunt For Red October / Starship Troopers
James Horner - Apollo 13
John Williams - Jurassic Park (20th Anniversary Edition anyone ?)
Elliot Goldenthal - Alien 3
John Williams - Star Wars Episodes I-VI (we still need a truly complete / definitive collection for this)
Indiana Jones Movies (ditto above)

Joel McNeely - Young Indiana Jones (a more expansive multi-volume collection)
Joel Goldsmith - Stargate SG-1 / Atlantis / Universe (someone NEEDS to get the rights to this and do a multi-volume collection. Joel's work on these series is seriously underrated).

forgot to add Jerry Goldsmith's brilliant Air Force One and James Horner's epic Willow both of which have been neglected for far too long.

I would also like to see La La Land do one more Bear McCreary Galactica set containing Blood & Chrome, the remaining Caprica score and perhaps a few remaining unreleased bits and pieces from the main show.

And the more I think about this the more ideas keep coming...

I would love a Star Trek: Animated Series soundtrack CD to come out. They didn't score much - indeed they kept recycling the same music over and over in every episode. But it was still nice !

And finally I would like to see a MacGyver soundtrack set (4 discs perhaps ?). I know it's all really cheesy 80's stuff but I have a bit of a soft spot for it (the score and the show itself !). Dennis McCarthy did some great stuff on this show.
