For Immediate Release
August 8, 2012

COMING SOON FROM LA-LA LAND RECORDS
STAR TREK®: THE ORIGINAL SERIES SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION

Burbank, CA -- La-La Land Records proudly announces its forthcoming release of STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION, a limited edition 15-CD box set, showcasing all episode scores as heard in all three original seasons of the landmark sci-fi television series STAR TREK (1966-1969). This special collection of ground-breaking, iconic music, from one of television’s most acclaimed and beloved series, has been newly remastered from studio elements and features hours of stellar material previously unreleased in any format.

Original series composers Alexander Courage, George Duning, Jerry Fielding, Gerald Fried, Sol Kaplan, Samuel Matlovsky, Joseph Mullendore and Fred Steiner are all represented in this deluxe collection, their historic work meticulously assembled, restored and remastered to ensure the finest presentation and sound quality possible. A 100-Page CD Booklet, featuring exclusive, in-depth liner notes from film music writer and Star Trek historian Jeff Bond, complements this attractive set, which is housed in a hardcover slipcase.

The collection is expected to be released in late fall 2012. It will be a limited pressing, but the total number of units to be manufactured has yet to be determined. You can help the label decide how many units will ultimately be pressed by visiting www.lalalandrecords.com now and signing up for the STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION MAILING LIST.

STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION is licensed by CBS Consumer Products and produced in cooperation with GNP Crescendo Records, the longtime home of pioneering classic Star Trek television and film soundtracks. GNP Crescendo’s Neil Norman has allowed for episode scores previously and exclusively released by Crescendo to be newly expanded and remastered for this box set, in order to make the collection as comprehensive as possible.

This release marks the kind of authoritative collection of original Trek series music that fans have desired for decades. “For 45 years, those like me who love this music could only dream about having it all,” remarks album producer Lukas Kendall. “This is the major, historical piece of sci-fi music, television music and pop culture music that we have always wanted to release in a definitive form for the collector.”

“A majority of the music featured in this set has never been released,” adds Executive Album Producer and La-La Land Records President MV Gerhard. “Of that unreleased music, there is a fairly large percentage that no one has ever heard because it was written and recorded for the show, but never featured in the episodes.” Regarding some of these previously unreleased tracks, Album Music Editor Neil S. Bulk comments, “No original music from season three, apart from the main title, has ever been released. It’s really distinct and definitely Star Trek… It’s what people have always wanted.”

“The original show was very theatrical,” says Trek historian and liner notes writer Jeff Bond. “So the music reflected that. It was huge and very expressive and thematic. And that makes it very exciting to listen to apart from the show.”

The original Trek series scores team with action, adventure and drama, but they are also infused with deep emotion and the greatness of the human spirit. Such characteristics have kept these richly orchestrated tracks vital and relevant decades beyond their original recording. “Trek was always about the human condition,” remarks Co-Executive Album Producer and La-La Land Records VP, Matt Verboys. “And the scores have that in it and I think that’s what has made both the show and its music timeless.”

This is astounding.
The video (link in the general La-La Land thread) is great and should be made available on the main site rather than Facebyurk; very nice music in it.

Congratulations, MV & MV, Lukas, Neil and Jeff, and the team involved in the restoration, on such an accomplishment!

La-La Land, please try and make a "'registered shipping" option available for shipping this set (and other releases).

Off to bed now...

I want this so bad I can taste it... but I'm worried about the price. 15 CDs will be a lot of dough, especially if the run is small.

I'm going to make a guess this will cost around $150-$300.(or am I too low?)

Same thing I thought.

Guess we'll find out soon enough.

I think you're too low. I would be surprised (though pleased) if it less than $300.

FSM sold their Miklos Rosza and Elmer Bernstein sets - each featuring 15-ish CDs - for around $200 each.

Anyways, amazing release. I'm not a "Trekkie", but a release like this is historically important and worthy of high praise.

I held off buying the Berman era sets this might be in the works. I have dreamed of this set for the last three decades.

As much as I like Trek, this might be where I draw the line. big grin I've been buying all the expanded film soundtracks, but there's no way I'm budgeted for a release like this, and I'm not terribly sure I need that much Trek series music. Don't get me wrong, though - for those who've been waiting for something like this - this is definitely really damn awesome. If money was no object, I might go for this even if I didn't listen to it that much. As it is, I'm just really happy for those who've been waiting years to shell out for this.

I have no idea what's involved with setting up pricing, but the fact that a price has not been announced and it looks like a lot of labor went into this (based on the video), I'm guessing it won't be cheap - but like somebody else said, it probably depends on the quantity (based on the interest, presumably)

I'll guess at $249.
An essential purchase whatever the price.
I'm just pleased they didn't try to lumber us with Star Trek equivalents of fall-apart zoetropes and mp3 USB drives with Mr. Spock's head on them, adding an extra couple of hundred to the cost.

although I have everything previously released, I registered. This show had some of the best, most iconic music.

With the complete movie scores churning out, the Ron Jones Project and this, I'll have every note of Star Trek music I want once La-La-Land gets to Voyager and releases "Scorpion" and a few others.
