It's the best of both worlds, if you liked the album version, you get it.

If you want to the expanded score, you get that...

And you only have to pay an additional $5.00 for the 2nd CD...



Which I and may others already have (mine's the Silva issue, which I'll admit doesn't have that disco track on it - not that thats' a bad thing). Not sure how it's the best of both worlds to have to pay extra for something I already have in order to get something new (17 minutes of which are already on the one I already have)..... smile

Okay, maybe the sound quality's better, but I didn't know KING SOLOMON'S MINES was at the wrong speed, I still can't tell what the problem is with GI JOE and I spent many years completely unaware that THE FUGITIVE channels are the wrong way round....


But even in these tough times.....only $5!

One thing is that while that second disc includes four tracks from the original album that "differ from version in the motion picture", the other four tracks do not, and thus 17 minutes (tracks 4,5,7 and 8) are duplicated on the first disc?

This isn't too different to how Intrada treated Alien, really.

Again, there are some who don't have the original LP or CD, and this is the best presentation of the album material: give us a remastered album arrangement, with the first disk as the complete in-film score.

However there was differences in sound in both score versions on Intrada's BLACK STALLION RETURNS - This might be the case here also

Thanks! I just ordered it.
But including the second disc is a waste, and inconsistent with the ST 2 release.


Give the man the cigar..

The First Fanboy bitchng about this release within Three minutes of the first posting.

Not a bad deal for those of us wanting this sort of release for the last 26 years....

I knew that sticking with my original LP and holding off on purchasing a CD copy for a couple of decades would finally pay off! .

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow what a hell of a thing to wake up too! Thank you FSM!!!! I can now toss the CD-R version from GNP of the OST I have for this. The first time I bought the OST was the original version but when I re-bought it a couple of years ago it ended up being the CD-R versions that GNP repressed.

All of the music would not fit on one disc. Recreating the original James Horner produced album to include all of the alternate album versions was the logical thing to do.

Outstanding.
Of course we all knew it was coming but it's still fantastic that it's coming now.

I really don't care that the original album is included it doesn't bother me one bit and I know that I will still listen to that sometimes so it's great that I will be able to listen to it in better quality than before.

Great cover art as well which ties in nicely with last years score for Khan.

Damn, is it sad to be this excited over a film score ?

Anyway thanks to all at FSM/Paramount/Capitol for this wonderful release.

Thank you so much FSM. Another grail released and one of Horner's finest! I'm still waiting for packages with 'The Horsemen' and 'Mad Max;Beyond Thunderdome' but this one is ordered.

The CD of Trek IV contains pretty much the entire score Rosenman wrote; he even bragged about it having the "shortest score for an SF blockbuster he could think of." It's about 35 minutes, and he claimed to have written 35 minutes of music.

Trek V, on the other hand...

I think the most interesting question is whether Rosenman recorded his legendary original version of the Main Title or not.

Nope. Why should we go from III to V? I remember there being a fourth movie.

The OST for Star Trek IV, is far from complete...hopefully it will get the release it deserves.

Regarding the duplication of some cues on Disc 2...well Disc 2 is clearly the OST presentation. However for "Stealing The Enterprise", it's different at the beginning in the film version. It doesn't have that annoying string overlay which I always hated hearing. Glad we can finally listen to it.

Hopefully one of the labels will be able to produce a complete release for Star Trek The Motion Picture. Well not only that one but the others too!
