I've never heard any Star Trek OST music outside of the main titles, so I had always assumed that everything was a bit "space loungey" like the main titles. The three or four other tracks in the video sounded very adventurous and dynamic. The price for this 15-disc collection is amazing (last 16-disc set I bought was $500) and if the samples of the finished product give me a lot of the same vibe I'm getting from the video, I may spring quite a bit of money for this guy. Either way, congratulations to LLL on this major release.

Great price as at $200, 15 discs that comes to like $13.33 a disc, that's almost $7.00 less then the typical $19.95 for these limited editions so yah good deal if ya ask me smile

Is Uhura singing in the "Changeling" going to be on this set?


Let me venture a guess and say probably not. The song she is singing there is "Beyond Antares," sort of Nichelle Nichols' jazzy variation on the tune, really, and from watching the scene you can tell that it was recorded on set. It is unlikely her performance of the song in that episode was recorded in its entirety, and in fact it does also get a little chopped up in the editing of the scene.

Her original performance of "Beyond Antares" (accompanied by Vulcan Lute) in the "Conscience of the King" episode, however, sounds like it was studio-recorded, and she appears to be lip-synching to the pre-recording for her onscreen performance.

In other words, we WILL very likely get to hear the song Uhura sang in "The Changeling," just not the "Changeling" performance of it.

. . . This is all just my best guess, of course. Can't wait to see the track list for this monster!


Interesting information. Thxs. smile

I'd just like to chime in for anyone unfamiliar with the scores for Star Trek:TOS. They are brilliant, rich, varied, memorable, stirring and above all, fun. Forget the fact that they were written nearly 50 years ago - this is music that is emphatically, unabashedly young at heart. It's inspired, serious feature quality scoring that you'll be humming weeks afterward.

May this set sell long and prosper!

What Saul said!

By all accounts, Roddenberry specified all this in his original concept for the show. He didn't want the music to sound like science fiction music. He wanted swashbuckling adventure and romance!

The result is, instead of an outdated idea of what the future would sound like, we got something refreshingly timeless.

--And a box set for the ages!

(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).

drooling!
I just can't wait so long to order this baby box!!!

Yes, you can use the option in their checkout, I've done so many times.

Thanks Francis. I felt like I had paid before by Paypal.

I usually order through SAE and save on California taxes, but sometimes they up the price a tad and then it all sort of evens out in the end.

@Jeff Bond:
Is it possible to include reel and cue numbers (1M1 etc.) in the liner notes? And if not, maybe somewhere else like here?

Simply a dream come true.

I'm just a tad worried how they're going to pack it...

I hope, judging from the package art, that each disc is housed in a standard-sized jewel case. Dealing with scratches or other damage would be a big headache with this much content.


Probably 4 quad cases.

I'm guessing it will have the replacement cues used for the VHS edition of "The City on the Edge of Forever"?

did they use source music, or rerecorded music to replace the "Goodnight Sweetheart" cues? I wouldnt think they'd include it if the former.

Ooh! That's a good question.

They're awful, of course, but if the re-recording of the Main Title theme from the DVDs is included, well . . .

I've just one burning question- for those of us outside the US (I'm in the UK) what will be the safest/best way to purchase the set? Direct from La La or from someone else such as SAE? Do any of them use courier/insured etc for such expensive packages? Customs charges be damned, I need to own this set after loving the show since I was a kid.

I live in the UK too, and I'm going to order this set from Screen Archives, and pay an extra $15 for registered post. I'm happy to pay the extra to save me from worrying about such an expensive set getting lost in transit.

One of the burning questions I'd like to see answered in Jeff's new "booklet" is about the second season arrangement of the Main Title (made to accommodate expanded titles length) and if Courage actually returned to Desilu to conduct the session. Though it is documented that Courage had no involvement with the second season music (probably because of the Roddenberry theme lyric debacle), the Fred Steiner article featured in "Wonderful Inventions" includes a few pages from the new arrangement, and in Courage's "hand."

Trelane expresses my thoughts about this box set.....
