Here's my review of last night's concert in San Diego:

BTW did you notice it was only about 35 players trying to do scores for 90 piece groups?

Yes, I think it is noticeable, not nearly as rich as what is on the recorded score, but it is enjoyable in any case. I would assume in the concert tour biz that putting 90 pieces out is just extremely expensive, hence the pared down orchestra.

We're lucky, then, that when the tour premiered in London we got a full scale orchestra!

I didn't comment on that, but yes indeed the difference is very noticeable.

I enjoyed it. I did notice the orchestra was smaller, but it didn't sound like a recording to me. There was some really badly botched horns at the beginning of either Voyager or Wrath Of Khan ( Don't remember?) I also agree that there was quite a bit of dialogue and sound fx for a concert, but overall a good experience.

I'll be disappointed if the LA concerts have a bigger orchestra, becuase if I knew that, I would have attended that instead.

I have attempted to order this CD more than ten times, and it won't accept my credit card. The message I get is the following:
THE TRANSACTION HAS BEEN DECLINED BECAUSE OF AN AVS MISMATCH. THE ADDRESS PROVIDED DOES NOT MATCH BILLING ADDRESS OF CARDHOLDER.

I have gotten some of my friends to try and order it for me, to see if their credit cards would work, but they are getting the same error.
Is it because the website can only ship to the USA? Maybe they don't ship to Australia?

I've had a look on Amazon and ebay – and unfortunately you can only "order" the CD from the link provided. Is there no Pay Pal option?

Just saw the concert last night in Denver, the reduced orchestra version, and for all the limitations inherent, it was a tremendously fun evening for me and my wife and 17-year old daughter and a couple of friends from WAY back.

Given how much others had talked about the dialog and the sound effects, for me the music was more than adequately present. And there was a lot of enthusiasm in the crowd for the program and especially the musicians, who at the end gave the audience the Vulcan salute, which got a big whoop!

(Denver has always been a big town for Sci Fi and Star Trek; we had the first major Trek mail order business in Starland - so it was a nice trip down the 50-year memory lane.)

*The theater was so packed that I didn't bother picking up the program and CD last night, instead ordered them this morning from the Ultimate Voyage website, used my Visa bank card, no problems.

Ah, I see you live in Aurora, Sean - I live in Ft Collins and have enjoyed many film music concerts with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra over the years, including the Erich Kunzel concert several years ago. I ordered the CD for this and have greatly enjoyed it, but had no idea this concert was happening locally! Glad you got to catch it.

And Starland - wow, *that* brings back memories! :-)

Hi, Z! Sorry you missed it, it was at the Paramount (a fun if slightly decrepit 1930s era theater in downtown Denver, for those not lucky enough to live in Colorado). It got moved around and just about zero publicity. I had to track it down on the dedicated site.

I decided to purchase the cd because I enjoyed the program and mix of eras, and was too lazy to put my own version together (since of course I have every note of Star Trek music ever put to CD). As others have said, it's not exactly flawlessly played, but it has energy and enthusiasm to spare.

I also went to the Denver concert at the Paramount. It was lots of fun! Actually, I thought it was one of the more "soundtrack accurate" live orchestral performances I've ever been to. There were a couple of moments when the traveling show orchestra may not have played it perfectly, but it was really an excellent performance overall. We went to see Star Wars in Concert at the Pepsi Center a few years ago and the orchestra there sounded exceptionally good too. The Pepsi Center in Denver is a black hole for sound quality as their sound system is horrid but the orchestra that night seemed to overcome the Pepsi Center's usual audio failings. I would love to have see this performance -- or any other music to screen performance like this Star Trek one -- at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles where the concert hall acoustics are supposedly pretty much perfect.

I never thought of looking for the CD at the concert (silly me) so I will be buying it from their website store. I am glad you enjoyed the concert.

Sincerely,
Jeffrey

"It's Back"
What does that mean?
Can we start ordering it now?

What I mean is - I'm from Australia - and as I stated above - when I tried ordering it, The following message appeared: THE TRANSACTION HAS BEEN DECLINED BECAUSE OF AN AVS MISMATCH. THE ADDRESS PROVIDED DOES NOT MATCH BILLING ADDRESS OF CARDHOLDER.
or hopefully....

"It's Back" - means we can now use "Pay Pal" to order....
Actually - I wouldn't mind ordering a second hand copy - as they charge over $25 for shipping!

Apologies. Answered old post talking about 404 error on page 1 of this thread. Didn't mean to say anything else.

As us buyer not happy from security point of view. Suspect reason PayPal surcharge issue or no frills web site can't support.

In case anyone as still after this CD. I bought my copy from this seller, and it's the genuine article.

Although used, it was in great shape and loads cheaper than the show/site price!

Many thanks ryanpaquet for this link, this disc was the best bargain all year. And it's not the first time you helped me get a bargain!

Thanks again, Roy

Oh and I should say - The performance and selections are very good, and the booklet with Jeff Bond's notes is fantastic. I'm enjoying this a lot more than the concert I attended in London!
