Doomsday Machine still sounds better than the GNP release, which wasn't that bad to begin with. It's just such an amazing, complex score, and it would be nice to hear the detail without some of the distortion (although you do get the highlights in Fred Steiner's rerecording).
A kindle version of the Trek music book would be a great idea--I don't know whether the original publisher still owns the rights or how that would work. The TOS box set booklet really is the ideal version of the book, at least as far as the TOS material goes--so much of the original book was inaccurate or just guesswork.

It's true. But after listening to the previous six discs you notice the distortion just because of how clear everything else sounds.

I'm listening to Gorgon Summoned/Gorgon Zapped on disc 5 of season 3. Other than the Lincoln music it's all library from here out.

FINISHED! 636 TRACKS! 17 HOURS, 18 MINUTES, 8 SECONDS!

I got through Beyond Antares! I got through Maiden-Wine! I got through the Space Hippies! (Actually those are amazingly listenable. Napier had a terrific voice!)

I've read every word of the liner notes! I smashed a CD case! I put on The Black Hole just for a breather!

Wow. Just wow. And then more wow.

I like that. It's like hurling the goblet into the fireplace after a toast, or smashing the wineglass with your heel at the end of the wedding ceremony. We should all smash a celebratory CD case after hearing all 17 hours!

Got mine in. Awesome set. Didn't come with a season 3. Has two season 2's. frustrating. Sent la-la land a email. Hope I can get a season 3 copy sent. Awesome set, but frustrating.

I got the set today and started listening to the library cues first, just because. Amazing sound quality, of course. But, before I listen to the whole set, can anybody tell me where the cues are in the set for the scenes in "The Tholian Web" where 1) they show short exterior shots of the glittering Defiant and 2) the Enterprise fires phasers on the Tholian ship? I'm assuming they are tracked and may be part of longer cues, but I really want to hear those. Thank you.

I got mine Saturday and have been listening to it all weekend and this week....falling in love all over again with Who Mourns for Adonais? Or as I refer it to it "Mudd's Woman II" at least music wise, and Metamorphosis..

I do have one question I need answered though. I am looking thru all the music, trying to find the Spock Nerve Pinch stinger. I know there is a track called 'Neck Pinch Sweetner' but its not the one I am looking for. The first time I recall it in an episode was during the "Mace Fight" cue in Catspaw when Spock lays McCoy out with the Nerve pinch. Anyone know were it is in the set?

And again, to all of the staff of LLL and FSM....thanks for making my, and a whole lot of other Trekker Music fans dreams come true;-)

P.S. to Other Tallguy, "Goodnight Sweetheart" is getting alot of playtime on my player too;-)

Try Zap the Cap in the Library cues, tracks 38 & 39 in disc 5 of season 2.

I'm looking forward to the Tholian Web cue that comes at the end of Kirk's memorial service. Always liked it.

You want "Zap the Cap" from season2, disc 5. The track called "Neck Pinch Sweetener" is what Gerry Fried recorded for that moment in Catspaw, but they tracked "Zap the Cap" (the shortest version I think) -- originally from "Charlie X" -- instead.

So does this thread's existence mean we can't post Actual Music Discussion in the main thread with the announcement? Personally, I'd like to just throw as much stuff into that one as possible...

Oh yeah, also to finally get “City on the Edge of Forever” and sounding great in stereo too! I’ve always loved the music when Edith is telling Kirk and Spock “how out of place you two seem…” in the basement.


Edith talking to Kirk and Spock-- I forgot all about that. I don't have the set yet, but this thing is going to be absolutely dripping with diamonds. Moments I've forgotten.



That's actually possibly my personal favorite moment of scoring from the series (I was planning on mentioning it in my response to question #2 in Adam B.'s impossibly generous giveaway).

LOL! Nearly 50 years after the episode aired, I think we can dispense with the spoiler bars. Especially since it's pretty certain he wasn't dead. :-)

Sure, but in fairness, there are plenty of people who weren't even around for it the first time. There are always new people discovering Star Trek.

So has anyone started doing cue sheets for the tracked episodes?

I am loving this set. I haven't had this much fun with a release before!

I am having a hard time locating the cue used in the episode "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield." It's from the beginning of the episode, when the Enterprise discovers a stolen shuttle craft ... it is snare heavy music, really suspenseful. I "think" it's from "Elaan of Troius" but I am not sure.

Where oh where? wink

Like me, for example.

I did watch some episodes from TNG and then nothing until I saw the reboot and got hooked. But I haven't watched the original series yet.

In fact I am not sure whether to buy the series first and then the music or the other way. Blurays will last more on the market I think. But how about I don't like the music that much to be owned? I have listened to the samples and I am almost convinced I need this, but still it's quite a spend.

Decisions, decisions...

Time to listen again!

Yes. Now I can listen to what I want to. Back to Where No Man Has Gone Before! I'd go listen to Metamorphosis again, but season three kind of lowered my Duning tolerance level a bit. I'll just give it some time.

I always noticed in the episode of Where No Man Has Gone Before, but I really love that Courage brings the "sonar pings" back into the fight with Gary at the end. (I think it's when Kirk is going to smash his head with the rock and hesitates.) It's great to hear it here.

I like that. It's like hurling the goblet into the fireplace after a toast, or smashing the wineglass with your heel at the end of the wedding ceremony. We should all smash a celebratory CD case after hearing all 17 hours!

Aye, just do it with a less fancy case that's easier to replace than the 6 disc-ers that come with the box.

It says something about how wonderful the packaging is on this box that even though I have all of the tracks available to me, and I can still read the booklets of notes, I miss having the box sitting on my desk. Kudos to the art team.

Just going from memory, a couple of image choices that I loved: Thanks for including Basil Poledouris. I love that you included Elaan's feet. The rest of the pan up is just kind of implied. And I liked the mix of "off season" images you included for the library cues.
