All the library cues will be included--believe me, some of my favorite cues are library cues (especially from season two) and it was paramount (no pun intended) that they all be included in this set. Mark my words--if you heard the music in the series, it is on this set, every variation, every library cue, every source cue I can think of. That, plus stuff you've never heard before--and it all sounds pretty stupendous.

The price will be around $200. Maybe slightly above but I don't think anywhere near $300.

And yes, this is every note of music heard in the series--plus music recorded for the show and never used, so not only is nothing missing, but there's stuff no fan has ever heard before--rather a lot actually.

And yes, Jeff Bond is happy.


Sweet. That's definitely reasonable. I guess I should have checked the box "will buy" when I signed up for the mailing list. smile

Regarding the confirmation e-mail. Got mine right away. You all should check your spam filter.

I'd think it would've gone to my junk folder, but nothing there either. I'm on Hotmail, anyone else using Hotmail get theirs?


Not only no, but HELL NO.

I just got the TREK season 1 bluray and noticed the 2.0 audio is really tweaked - minor fx are amped as well as parts of the music you dont normally hear. Got me stoked for the cds.

I (and other fans) have spent much more than $200 worth of manhours editing TREK dvd 5.1 audio into music/fx cds. For what we're getting from LLL, the price is a bargain. I'll buy two sets, I shit you not.

There is some material in stereo--I don't think anyone is going to be disappointed by the sound of this set though. For instance, if you recall the sound of the GNP release of The Cage and Where No Man Has Gone Before, it's pretty shrill and in fact I found myself rarely going back to listen to that stuff and having sort of a dim view of the music over the years because of that. Now that stuff almost sounds audiophile quality to me, and it's really made me completely reappraise Alexander Courage's music. The Enterprise Incident is another score I never really liked, and now I love it. Also Mullendore's Conscience of the King, which I always found too far outside the style of the rest of the series music, stands out as a real achievement and an absolutely fascinating score. And those are the scores I was NOT all that into previously...to not only get new appreciation for those, but to hear the scores I've always loved for years--Who Mourns For Adonais?, Friday's Child, Metamorphosis, Return to Tomorrow—finally in great sound has been revelatory.

Wow, truly a groundbreaking news from ground Zero of Trek fandom! Congrats to the La La Land team!!!!!

Jeff: are the label x re-recording suites also included? just wondering?

Don't sweat it--they will make enough for everyone who wants this set to get it.

The label X rerecordings are just that--rerecordings and thus not part of the recorded music for TOS. The only rerecording included on the set is the new recording of the TOS main title done for the Trek Remastered series. If you enjoy the Label X interpretations (as well as the Fred Steiner rerecordings done for Varese), hold onto them as they are often quite different (listening to the original Spectre of the Gun, for example, you really notice how close it is to The Wild Bunch--the tempi are vastly different on the rerecording and the score is really played much more slowly than it is in the episode).

I suppose they could actually be getting too much traffic. Let's hope so! smile

Aside from the actual music, the video that LaLaLand had put together for this announcement was great. Loved the cutaways to the STAR TREK memorabilia. Well done.

My memory of the CD (I haven't played it in years) is that the music sounded like it was pitched up from what it actually was. It'd certainly be great to hear it in the "right" key at long last.

I have all the GNP albums, as well as the Varese and Label X re-recordings, but I'm definitely going to be buying this on Day 1. ~$200 is a very reasonable price, IMO, for the complete three seasons worth of music, and then some. This beauty will go right next to the Ron Jones set. I'm not sure how LLL, or any other label, will ever manage to top this in the future. It's comforting to know there's a label out there like LLL that sees the value of such a product and caters to a niche within a niche.

I also tried signing up for the mailing list, but have yet to receive the confirmation e-mail. I use Yahoo! Mail... checked my junk folder too; no luck yet.

I agree, I didnt play these that much either! Now is a good chance to dive again!

As long as it is priced fairly, I will buy this.

wouldnt you say it was worth a man's soul?

LOL!


Jeff, I recall reading about one of the DVD or Blu-ray reissues of the original series having some strange music problems. Were the tapes used for this project not made available to the CBS crew working on those reissues?
