¶ I was listening again to disc 2 and I noticed they integrated Paul's guitar recital in The Black Sun score: very nice sense of detail. They really tried to be as faithful as possible.



They didn't just integrate it, they actually recreated it for the CD, which as you say is a bit of attention to detail. Especially since in the scene itself consisted of, ISTR, actor Prentis Hancock doing a few improvised strummings for a few seconds.

A real labour of love smile

I listened again to the first two discs while driving on the highway
from Milano to Parma and the next day from Parma to Milano.
Just powerful and evocative music that is very stimulating.

Yes, I think so.

Also, a lot of the library music is excellent too. Mike Hankinson's The Astronauts is a fantastic piece, while many of the more minimalistic and unusual library pieces impart a wonderfully offbeat atmosphere to the proceedings.

The music editor Alan Willis really was an unsung hero on that series.

I agree with you that the music editor used to achieve a fabulous task of selecting music.
I am listening to disc 3, the bonus section and the two stock music moody pieces:
Macrocosm - full version by Frank Cordell which is the unedited recording used in "Mission of the Darians".
Consumption 1 - full version by Georges Teperino which is the unedited recording used in "Force of Life".

For Last Sunset I was hoping for that last piece that is played as sun sets on moon and eagles are leaving . Anyone know if that was a library piece or included somewhere else in the album?

From what I can tell may appear in two tracks from black hole survival ship and event horizon as well as three tracks of another time another place earthbound, santa maria, flowers for helena. Not sure why didnt just inappropriate into last sunset. Maybe way cues stored.

This is a damned fine representation of the first series' music. I have the other releases as well and this is a wonderful update. The boost in sound quality is sweeeet. With the addition of certain sound effects created musically, it really seems 99% complete. It's great to have more cues form other Anderson shows put in where they were used in the episodes. The only one I wish they included was within Collision Course. Once Koenig spots the "massive planet," the act out music heard was from another Anderson series, but was not included here. Other than that, a beautiful presentation, sonically and physically. A very handsome set.

This doesn't replace the old sets for me. Some of the previous cue edits worked better for me. It's a fine addition and follow up.

The inclusion of more library music is also very nice. I love the Chappell Library scores used here and on The Prisoner and am always happy to see a release.

Well worth the money and the wait to get here.

but there's nothing missing from the previous set, right?
For my own benefit, could you specify cue edits are different? I dont know both sets very well, so I'd like to see if the differences matter to me.

I am presently enjoyed my just-received solo CD of SUPERCAR, a fine addition to the Barry Gray library. Had the previous CD that was divided between SUPERCAR and FIREBALL XL5, but now it's great to have a solo CD on each of those early shows.

I'm pretty sure that there was a comprehensive breakdown of the three discs here, by Stephen Woolston, somewhere, in PDF format.

maybe in a different thread. I only see that he caught a typo on the jewelcase insert tracklist.
