Good for you.

For me, even though I generally advocate C&C, this may be a release that is just a tad too complete -- by which I mean that I would prefer that it not include the dreadful pop music. Still, I suppose there must be someone who likes that too, so in the spirit of cooperation, I will accept the task of removing it from my own listening experience.

Question for Mr. Bulk or Mr. Kendall, were there any unexpected surprises in the music when you guys were working on it, aka the moment the Enterprise jumped to Warp in Trek II (Kirk Takes Command)?

For me, it was a surprise to learn that the Enterprise countdown cue and atmosphere-burn-up cue were in fact one continuous piece of music.

I've been waiting 26 years to hear that cue outside of the film.

I think it's hilarious that there's talk of a score release being TOO complete. I think we only have to go back about 5 years to look at these boards filled with statements on how scores like GOONIES, BACK TO THE FUTURE, and STAR TREK II had no realistic chance of ever being released.

Now look at where we are! I think we're pretty damn fortunate.

As someone who remembers way back to discovering TAKING OF PELAM ONE TWO THREE on laserdisc and very shortly after seeing FSM's then just released CD, I have to marvel at how far things have come. The only downside, if you can call it a downside, is that we're burning through all these holy grails so fast.

On the subject of ST3, about 2 years ago on the boards, someone was asking how much extra music there was for ST2 and 3. So I went through my DVD copies and laid it all out- so it's really gratifying for me to finally be able to listen to these things. I don't buy Horner's stuff anymore, but this early material will never get old for me. I've been listening to the album arrangement of STEALING THE ENTERPRISE for so long, that when I clicked on the sample for it I was shocked to hear the wonderful stripped down movie version.

Love. It.

Thanks!

(Except for that word "dreadful.")



You gotta ac-cen-tu-ate the positive!


(BTW, Lukas, any mention in the liner notes of why those three Johnny Mercer songs were chosen for the bar source music, although only "Tangerine" made it to the final print . . . and who chose them?)

For the record, no pun intended, I was referring to "The Search for Spock: Theme From Star Trek III (Performed by Group 87)," for which I think the word "dreadful" is being rather kind.

I'm happy it's there from a completeness point of view, but it is pretty awful !!!

Question For Mr. Kendall or Mr. Bulk...

In your research for this release did you happen to find out if Capitol ever released a version of the cd prior to GNP?

Soundtrackcollector.com lists a catalog number of CDP 46089, but I haven't been able to verify this, nor have I ever seen a copy.

My guess is either that Capitol planned to release it on their label and so assigned it a catalog number but then gave GNP the rights.

Just curious.

In case you haven't noticed, I'm an an*l-retentive collector. smile

I tried to hunt that CD down for years before GNP released their version.

It was listed in several store catalogs as being available for order but every time I placed one for it, the CD would never arrive.

That's very interesting.

It seems like it never saw the light of day, although 14 people on Soundtrackcollector.com have said they own it according to the number listed alongside the release information. I tink dey confused or sumptin'.

Me too! I can't wait! Well I guess I have too, but really looking forward to this expanded treatment.

I remember that! I found the catalog listing in the Schwann Guide and tried to order it from the local record store.
Note to younger readers: a record store was a... never mind.

I have never seen any evidence of it being produced (the Capitol CD that is) and believe it was a catalog listing only.

Don't worry. I'm 27 and I know perfectly well what a record store is. I even remember hunting down the 20th Anniversary CD of Star Trek: TMP and I finally found it at Peaches, which has long since closed down (as did the Krispy Kreme that replaced it). I wasn't old enough to drive so Mom had to ferry me around town looking for this stuff.

My dad, on the other hand, teaches 6th grade and I doubt his students have ever seen a tape cassette before, let alone a record, let alone a record store. smile

Thanks for the info.

Back in '84, when I was just a wee lad (12), I actually called Nuggets Records in Boston, MA and had them reserve a copy of the 2 lp set of Star Trek III and my sister was nice enough to get it for me.

@ CHRIS from S A E ... or anyone from F S M

I am already curious about the design of the BACK COVER

Could you please post it here or on the SAE website please? smile


Just click on the S.T.111 cover where you can see the front covers for the last 9 FSM releases.

It's at the top of the FSM Home page.


Thank you so much!

Thanks to FSM for keeping the same awesome cover design as for Star Trek II! big grin

I'm actually pretty jazzed FSM kept the Disco Theme for their release. It's a product of the time and part of an authentic recreation of the LP/CD. It's also a guilty pleasure, like the Logan's Run disco love theme, Close Encounters, and The Incredible Hulk.

Looking forward to this CD reaching my mailbox. I love the opening blaster beam in the film version of the theme. Interesting how that was dialed out for the film.

Just a quick thank you to Lukas for relegating the source cues to the end of the discs. This is very much appreciated.
