True. I still glance at it and ask myself what it is. smile Whats great about these releases is that much of the source stuff was included as well. Like "The Old Black Magic.." from III and "A Moon's the Window to Heaven" from V.

IIRC ST II came out of nowhere for everyone. III was hoped for but by no means a done deal. Then by the time V came out it was a question of WHEN not IF for IV, VI, and finally TMP.

That was the sentiment on the board, yes, but I was actually hoping for TOS as soon as II was released. Properly expanding the films was a miracle in its own right but, with the environment of recent years and Trek access to Paramount (finally!) I felt confident TOS would be realistic and feasible.

I certainly knew if it was ever going to happen, now would be the time.

I was particularly glad about the later, as much as I like Hiroshima version I was very disappointed to find it when first played the ST:V cassette. I wanted the Uhura version, so come the Expanded release LLL made me a very happy bunny.

OK, I keep hearing that A Fighting Chance to Live contains a quote from The Death of Juliet from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet. I'm not hearing it. (Of course I'm way more familiar with Horner than Prokofiev.) I can certainly hear The Fight at the beginning of the album version of Stealing the Enterprise. Can someone help me out here? Which part is the lift?

Listen here at around 4:38: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNPXP4fvh8M

The relevant portion of the Trek III cue covers the scene where the crew has beamed down to Genesis and is watching the Enterprise burn up in the atmosphere.

Chris.

Oh. Oh, I see. The recording I was playing had it broken up differently so I wasn't hearing in Juliet's Death, I think.

Wow.

Still gorgeous. I still miss him.

Absolutely. It's still a fabulous score. Say what you will about Horner's borrowings... they pretty much always work dramatically and musically whenever they crop up. The full Romeo and Juliet ballet is really worth checking out if you like what you've heard so far - it's my favorite work by Prokofiev.

I started listening to it a bit earlier today. I'll do more tomorrow. I've heard the suite from Alexander Nevsky.

I've always liked Peter and the Wolf. I think so did Don Bluth. Both Secret of NIMH and Land Before Time seem to have been temped with it. With Horner I'm sure it was like throwing him into the brier patch!

Not one to pass up on a Bluth comment. I know he temped parts of NIMH with Williams "Close Encounter of the Third Kind". Specifically the chorus parts wink
