I'm so glad Sony decided not to license out to third parties. This new system of announcing things and then cancelling them later so that nothing gets released, is so awesome.

It's the BEST if you have the Varèse and just sit on the sidelines to see what happens. big grin


(Of course, I am sure this will just be released eventually.) :-)

Press release from Sony:

NEW YORK, NY – In honor of the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters’ 1984 theatrical debut, Sony Music announces a special reissue of “GHOSTBUSTERS (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SCORE)” with music by legendary film composer ELMER BERNSTEIN (The Magnificent Seven, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Age of Innocence).Available now to preorder, the anniversary edition arrives in digital formats for the very first time (in both standard and hi resolutions) and on CD Friday, June 7 and on vinyl Friday, July 19. The collection features music from the iconic blockbuster, newly mixed and remastered from the score’s original multi-tracks, as well as new artwork, commentary from Elmer Bernstein’s son, Peter, and four previously unreleased tracks.

Of the 35th anniversary edition, Peter Bernstein, son of the late Elmer Bernstein, says, “As one of the original orchestrators on Ghostbusters, it has been very satisfying and also very moving to work on this soundtrack release 35 years down the road. It is a great movie with great music and we had a whole lot of fun creating it. I am very pleased to see it released in its original form.”

With a star-studded cast, Ghostbusters follows four men on a mission to save the world. Fired from university research jobs, Doctors Venkman, Stantz and Spengler set up shop as “Ghostbusters,” hiring Zeddemore and, together, ridding Manhattan of bizarre apparitions. But even the spirit exterminators are severely tested when beautiful Dana Barrett and her nerdy neighbor Louis Tully become possessed by demons living in their building. Soon every spook in the city is loose and our heroes face their supreme challenge at a rooftop demonic shrine. If you want your spirits raised, who you gonna call? Ghostbusters!

You re one of those ' every cue separate' fanatics; aren't you.

I'm more of a 'NO CROSSFADES' and 'NO DIALOGUE/VOICEOVER' fanatic. I don't mind if the cues are combined to simulate how it sounded in the film (Rambo: First Blood Part 2 Intrada vs Regular), but not when it didn't (Predator Intrada vs Varase and Instrada V2).

Trying to do a comparison between the Sony and Varèse Sarabande albums to see what the differences are. Can't figure them all out however.

01. Ghostbusters Theme 3:01 = 01. Ghostbusters Theme 3:02 on the VS album
02. Library 2:22 = 02. Library and Title 3:04 without the Title music
03. Venkman 0:33 = 03. Venkman 0:31
04. Hello 1:36 = 05. Hello 1:36
05. The Best One in Your Row 1:07 = ?
06. Get Her! 2:03 = 06. Get Her! 2:02
07. Plan 1:26 = 07. Plan 1:25
08. Dana's Theme 3:31 = 13. Dana's Theme 3:32

11. Client 0:35 = 11. Client 0:36
12. Dana's Apartment 1:40 = 12. The Apartment 2:45 first part?

14. We Got One 2:03 = 14. We Got One! 2:04
15. Zuul Part 1 0:46 = ?
16. Meeting 1 0:39 17. Meeting 0:38
17. I Respect You 0:57 = 18. I Respect You 0:55
18. Who Brought the Dog 0:59 = 21. Dog 0:58
19. Zuul Part 2 4:13 = 23. Zool 4:12 which was misspelled on the VS album
20. Steel Drum 1:29 = Previously unreleased source music
21. Cross Rip 2:16 = 27. Ghosts! 2:16
22. News 1:44 = ?
23. Judgment Day 1:19 = 25. Judgment Day 1:21
24. Mistake 0:39 = 26. The Protection Grid 0:44?
25. Halls 2:30 = 15. Halls 2:03 with some previously unreleased music?
26. Ballroom 1:03 = Previously unreleased source music
27. Trap 0:54 = 16. Trap 1:57 which means it's missing music?
28. Meeting 2 1:14 = The Gatekeeper 1:13?
29. Earthquake 0:34 = 29. Earthquake 0:34
30. Stairwell 1:21 = 31. Stairwell 1:15

33. We're Going to Save the World 1:27 = ?
34. Mr. Stay Puft 0:34 = 33. Marshmallow Terror 1:25 which means it's missing music?
35. Final Battle 1:33 = Final Battle 1:33
36. Finish 2:15 = 35. Finale 2:19
37. Zuul (Album Version) 3:14 = 38. Zool (Album Version) 3:14 which was also misspelled on the VS album

Missing tracks from the VS album:

So it looks like they trimmed out score sections that were replaced by songs in the film? Makes sense for a broader audience who would prefer "the familiar". The unused score after title on the Varese album did sound odd at first.

The VS edition did not contain un-used score in the bonus section exclusively. It contained alternates and the re-recording (plus Magic).

The body of the score contained un-used score in it, including the ending "Get her!" and all of "We Got One!" (for example).

As someone who owns the Varese, I have to say EB's "pop" interludes in the score really cheapen it for me (and I say this as a huge fan of the score) so perhaps I'll be happier with this approach. Now if only it weren't for those bitty cue lengths (something that also blighted the Varese)...

I would not be averse to a hybrid album that incorporates score with songs into a decent listening experience.
