I would LOVE extra track commentary notes by Jeff Bond, any time GNP would add them...is this the first of the Lukas-overseen reissues/expansions of Trek NOT to be worked on by Jeff?

Are there expanded pdf liner notes online for this release like there were with GENERATIONS and FIRST CONTACT, or is the physical insert in the CD it (not that that would be bad at all--it's a nice booklet as is--I just want to be sure if there's more info out there to be found, I don't miss it)?

The booklet in the CD is all there is, I would think GNP would have posted a link to other notes available online.

Damn, this beauty sounds great. I'm just starting to get used to the different, more screen accurate cross fades because of 20 years of listening to the original CD. I have to say, the original album was a really amazing presentation of the overall score (digital pops not withstanding). It was always 100% satisfying in that regard. Having said that, it's awesome to have it all at last, even the really short pieces. Not only does it add a dimension to the full score, this also means we have every frelling note of Ron Jones' TNG output.

Thanks one and all for making this possible.

I just ordered my copy last night via BSX, I was going to order via GNP but I feel out of my seat when I saw they wanted $17.50 just to post it to Germany.

The sound quality is much improved; now it matches the sterling audio in the Ron Jones box set.

For my iPod, I have my Ron Jones Star Trek music arranged into season collections. This means that the final cue in the season 3 set is “Captain Borg.” It's much more satisfying to hear that thunderous finale sounding so clear.

Received it today from BSX, listened twice so far and it sounds and plays excellent, love this new presentation.

Well.... this is an interesting predicament I've found myself in. I go to my mail box, find three envelopes from BSX, and when I open them up, they all contain the same thing.



Despite the fact that I only bought one copy of this soundtrack, I have received not only three copies of it, but they're all autographed as well. I feel like something went wrong.

I bet someone has one copy instead of three. Probably the order before or after you. Mistakes do happen.

What's strange is that the three envelopes all had something different.

1st: Just a copy of the soundtrack.
2nd: A copy of the soundtrack and one receipt.
3rd: A copy of the soundtrack and a detailed receipt.

Both receipts had one order which was the soundtrack for a quantity of 1, with shipping equaled to about $25.

Anyways, I called the company and they have informed me that they would like the extra copies of the soundtrack back. I will humbly oblige!

GHopefully they will at least compensate you for the shipping cost for their error...

Is there anyway I can get my RON JONES BOX SET and BOBW booklets signed by Ron Jones?

 By:   Jeyl   (Member)

I've sent BSX an email requesting further instructions. Hopefully they'll be able to sort everything out so that those who were supposed to get the signed copies will be able to get theirs.

I just listen to the new Best of Both Worlds CD for the first time. I like the remastering very much! Very clear and detailed sound.

Wonderful release that I'm enjoying a lot - thanks a lot to everyone involved for making this possible! smile

Still I also got a qustion for those in the know (Lukas?):
Will there also be extended liner-notes available in the near future?

Currently I can only find those for "Generations" & "First Contact":

http://gnpcrescendo.com/firstcontact/

Hopefully it is possible to bestow "Best of Both Worlds" with the same classy deluxe treatment! smile

No extended liners for BOBW, features only.

Darn! But it's such a better film (and some would say score) than all the features! smile

Oh well -- thanks for letting us know.

Now that's a true pity - I was really looking for another excellent Liner Notes edition.
And even more so in this case as I really came to love this score a lot. frown

But thumbs up for your quick and straight answer!
And at least two hand full of thumbs up for all the miracles you've made possible - who could possibly have foreseen a complete "BOBW" two years ago, for example?

Thank you so much and please keep up your excellent work! smile

Just a reissue?

Are you kidding me?

This now contain the complete score and the sound is vastly improved over the original release and it fixes one MAJOR mixing issue that bugged a lot of folks over the last 22 years..

It's a major upgrade.

Anyone one who says otherwise clearly hasn't compared the two releases

shakes head...

Yeah they sound is MUCH better than the original, and doesn't have that wierd wierd balance issue that plagued FSM's box set through either.
Even if it WAS just the same music as the original album it would be worth a rebuy.
