Starship Troopers and The Rocketeer in one year! 2016 is shaping up quite nicely!

I also love that it's got the original album presentation included. Those Amazon scalpers can eat it.

I like the score, I'm just confused by this album presentation. It's two discs but each disc contains the exact same material. Why not take out the source music from disc 1 to fit the complete score and keep the original album?

Only disappointment here is including the two Melora Hardin songs on disc one made it too long to include the complete score, necessitating a spill-over into disc #2. Otherwise, I'm thrilled to have this in complete form. smile

Do we pay in dollars or Deutschmarks?

Hey, pal, I may not earn an honest dollar, but I'm a hundred-percent American!

It could be a contractual issue, it could even be the old release presented here kept it's mastering and the Intrada version has been mixed differently. They certainly don't do just 'cause. As Roger once said about the costs of CD's (partial quote):

"Here's what costs have increased since our first $19.99 CD went out our door: The advances to acquire the license. The royalty rates to the studio. The mechanical licensing fees. (Yes, every time we add another track to an album, not only do we pay a higher rate, but we pay that rate so many more times over, too.)"

For the rest of that quote and quotes from MV on the costs of bringing us this music, see my post half a dozen posts down here:

Does Intrada charge when they ship, or when you press "click" ?

I think Intrada runs a pre-approval, then charges you when they ship. On a delayed shipment it feels like my bank account is charged, refunded, then the money is slipped out under the cover of night and the charge officially appears later.

As much as I hate repetition like that, some of the tracks are different. It even says so in the blrub -- certainly The Flying Circus sounds different, and I imagine the OST might have a couple different takes of some things.

That said, including the songs twice seems a bit silly.

As explained in the first post, some of the album versions are different to their film counterparts. No different to many expanded scores and it can also be a stipulation of the licensing agreement.

This release would have been announced sooner but the first release got lost during shipping.

Fantastic release! With Varese and Intrada honouring the 1st anniversary of Horner's passing, I wonder if La- La Land has some Horner planned for Comic Con?

That's my only disappointment too. Seems odd to split the score at its climax when the source tracks (which break up the natural flow anyway) could have been put on disc 2 The album track "Jenny" (Love Theme) didn't really need to be repeated either.

Guess it might have been done to justify the second disc. I'm delighted that the original album is included.

But one of the very best Horners. And, otherwise, presentation looks superb.

It really is great to finally see this score got a complete treatment but I agree with the above poster(s). The second disc should have contain Alternates and Unused cues instead of a re-release of the OST album we all have in our collection. (and only makes this Album more expensive for purchase)

Amer Zahid said Earlier:

"James Horner pointed out in a interview that he delivered a near 100 minute score to the film that was constantly being edited and changed. So I suspect the run time of the score in film length must be in the 75 minute range. The remaining 25 minutes could be tons of alternates and unused cues. If that is correct then the film score should continue on disc 2 along with the alternates and un used cues. Add another 20 minutes of source music to the configuration. And you have 2cd set with a 120 minutes of music. If this is the case I doubt that disc 2 will feature the OST album. "

Unfortunate Amer was wrong.
