This is one of those "Never knew how much I wanted it" expansions. So excited to add this to my collection. Thanks, LLL!

I'd prefer a SPIDERMAN 3 CD (Young), but this is a good score from Elfman with memorable themes.



If they can release the first one, I think we can safety assume future Spider-Man's are possible.

ORIGINAL SCORE ALBUM
1. Main Title 3:29

BONUS TRACKS
16. Main Titles (Album Version) 3:41

DISC 2
SCORE PRESENTATION

1. Main Titles (Album Version) 3:41

Wait a minute. You have the original score album with the Main Title, and a bonus track of the Main Titles identified as the 'Album Version' on the same disc... Why is the plural version identified as the album version when it's a Bonus Track on the score album on the same disc that's supposed to represent the score album? Why does the score presentation start with the album version of the Main Titles when it isn't even on the original album to begin with? Why isn't the Main Title (Singular) from the score album the track that starts the score presentation since that is the true album version of the Main Title instead of the Main Titles (Plural) that's presented as a bonus track? Why is there a Main Titles (Album Version) bonus track at all on Disc 1 when it looks like it's the same track on the score presentation on disc 2? Is there no film version of the main title/main titles available? And if there is, why wasn't that one used? Is the album version of the Main Titles (Plural) the one used in the film? Why isn't that simply called the (Film Version) instead of an album version that doesn't exist in the score album outside of the bonus track?

Disc 1 track 1 is the "Main Title" track from the old score album



Disc 1 track 16 is the "Main Titles" track from the song compilation album



Disc 2 track 1 is the same, because it already matched what went into the film

There's a note in the album that explains all this and more.

If the album version is supposed to be what was from the album (hence "album"), then how come it has a different running time? And it's it's already included, how come it's there again in the score presentation? Does that mean there is no film version?

My spidy senses are confused!

The answer is in the running time for both "Album Version" tracks. The Main Title on the score album is 12 seconds shorter than what was on the songs album. Since it was previously released we had to carry that designation over to the expanded Score Presentation because it's the same track content wise, but our mastering is different. This applies also to "Farewell."

In this case, the "Album" is the song compilation album, not the score album.

20 years ago, the song compilation album had a "Main Titles" and a "Farewell" that is different than what is in "Main Title" and "Farewell" on the score album.

If I remember correctly, the song album for Godzilla back in the day did something similar.

Wouldn't it be easier just to have:

CD1 - original album
CD2 - complete film score
CD3 - bonus tracks
?

This constant splitting of the score between two CDs when it doesn't need to be is quite annoying.


I played with several different layouts for this collection. This was the one I was most comfortable with.


Besides which, the total score is almost 79 minutes. A little close to the max length, especially with iffy QC in these rushed and limited times at the CD plant(s?).

If the film score, album & bonus followed this arrangement, then most fans and customers would find the 3-CD release (and the resulting boxset price) unnecessary, since what everyone has been craving for since 2000 is the complete film score which neatly fits in one CD, thus proving the rest of the contents reduntant to most listeners...

Maybe I’m just missing things but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of love for this release...

Perhaps I’m mis remembering reactions to previous Black Friday announcements but I seem to remember 100s of replies to each release by day two of their announcement.

Seems a bit more low key this year. Maybe that’s a trend that I haven’t been noticing.

Anyways, it was a great, surprising and varied batch of CDs announced this year. As always, I’m thankful to LLL for the excitement that the Black Friday release brings - it’s kinda better than the anticipation of Christmas presents because I know that there will always be at least one CD that will blow my mind.

This is the CD that did it for me. Never saw it coming - and that’s the best feeling ever. To be completely blindsided.

Looking forward to the magical first listen.

Wow, what a great release! Can't wait to order this

Quick question: Is the short percussion piece for the scene where Peter misses the bus and rips off part of the banner on this set? Chronologically it plays just before the track 'Something's different'.

Thanks again La La Land for the best batch ever!

No. It looks to have been editorially created. "A New Man" is slated 2m1 while "Something's Different" is 2m2 and "Catching Bus" plays between them but wasn't anywhere on our material.

Couldn't have said it better myself. I was caught up in Thanksgiving activities and didn't respond much but WOW what a spectacular set of releases. All of them essential in some way.

SPIDER-MAN was the biggest shock: it's nice to see so many classic Elfman scores getting the deluxe treatment. A lovely score with one of the strongest superhero themes ever and plenty of emotion along the way. Eflman brought his "A" game and then some. It's also thoughtful to include the film versions of the Main Title and Finale cues that got trimmed a bit on the score album but were complete on the song soundtrack release. I appreciate that kind of extra care in producing a release like this.
