The Young Savages is definitely a great start to the new year! Never heard of the other one, but can't wait for The Young Savages. Thanks Intrada!

I'm excited too. I was thinking about Splendor In The Grass only a day ago.

Transformers and The Young Savages are definitely a great start to the new year for those who want them! I've never heard either one, but can't wait for Mulan.

Thanks Intrada!

I think TRANSFORMERS may be the first soundtrack I buy in a quite while that I don't quite have a relationship to (never seen the film or heard the music beyond samples), based only on the strength of the composer and my love of ROCKY IV.

And what if it's C&C, think about it, do you really need a C&C clogging your vibe?

Wasn't really a big fan of Transformers The Movie, but the score has a synth-rock vibe that i really dig, so i'll be picking this up!


....now if only we can get Transformers: Dark Of The Moon on a physical CD

Don't get excited. I was just making a riff on the previous joke posts by naming a probable future Intrada title not being released now at all. No inside information here.

Oh, I fully expect it to be C&C, but so be it. I actually think ROCKY IV worked well in that format, so maybe this is more of the same, given the nature of the music.

Bingo. This really oughtta be a reality. Hell I'd even go for expanded versions of all 3 scores.

There...I said it.

Me too, actually. Especially the first two. Wasn't really a fan of the third score, but as it hasn't had a physical release yet, why not?

Yes to all!!! I love the Transformers' power anthems and would immediately buy any release with additional material. I especially think Darkside of the Moon needs a physical release. Heck, I can't even download it anymore...

Anyways, back on topic. I look forward to Transformers The Movie and listening to samples of The Young Savages. Thanks Intrada!!!

Well it's about 71 minutes long, including an alternate version of the Transofrmers theme song.
So...

I have DiCola's Transformers on a CDR, but it would be fun reading the liner notes on the new release.

There was in fact a later release in 2001 which DID include the three score tracks from the original album, but not the Legacy track, which was instead on a different CD that included some other demos/ideas along with (IIRC) audio of DiCola talking about them, or something.



You're correct, TerraEpon.

For anyone interested in the Legacy track(s)...

The Protoform Sessions CD is still available. I missed both it and the Artistic Transformations CDs back when they were originally released in 2001, but found them a few months ago (June 2013) thanks to the forums here. Both CDs are still commercially available at the following links:

http://www.tdrsmusic.com/
http://travisdickersonmusic.com/shop/

However, the the demo version on The Protoform Sessions is different from the version on the Till All Are One 2-CD set:

TRACK 19, "Transition #9"
====================

Vince DiCola: "Here's a slightly earlier version of the piece Legacy, and there's one very important difference between this version and the final version, and I think it will be very obvious to you. You do have to wait through quite a bit of music to get to the section that's changed. I think you'll understand our reasons for making the change when you realize that this version was made only after we knew for certain that none of this music was gonna get used in the movie."

====================

The section in the "Legacy (Demo)" [~3:36-3:50] contains the following spoken lines using a vocoder:

Anonymous Autobot (Vocoder #1): "Ultra Magnus, we now have the Decepticons in sight; please advise."
Ultra Magnus (Vocoder #2): "They must be stopped at all costs. Autobots, transform!"

This section in the final version on the Till All Are One 2-CD set [~3:40-3:55] has the spoken lines removed.


One way to tell the difference is that Legacy from Till All Are One is [6:04] in length, whereas the Legacy (Demo) from The Protoform Sessions is [6:00] in length.
