Anyone know what the asterisks, + signs mean? I'm assuming it has something to do with using songs by other songwriters in the score (songs from these and earlier Muppets movies), but I don't see any explanation on the Intrada site.
Yeah, there's a bizzare lack on info on that page. No track times, no even mention of which track are for what movie (granted it's obvious but still) and total times for each. No back cover scan like other discs have either.
Still, thee samples are surely great. Anyone who says 2014 has had a lack of good releases is clearly not actually listening to any of it.
Well Muppet Treasure Island has a large chunk of the score too.
We now have large chunks of score for all the Muppet movies. Muppets From Space was done by Varese, and the OSTs from The Muppet Movie, Muppet Christmas Carol, Muppet Treasure Island are all back in print from various places. They all include a generous amount of score.
If only we could get reissues (or expansions, but I'm not greedy) of The Great Muppet Caper and The Muppets Take Manhattan - on CD!
