Are the various problems talked about with this release enough to warrant not purchasing this album. I don't have original release so this would be the first time listening to the material outside of the movie. I wonder if Intrada or another label will revisit this in the near future to fix some of the issues, and therefore I should hold off for now. I think there have been titles that have been rereleased shortly after to address sound problems but I can't remember what they are. I think Dressed to Kill was one?

Dressed To Kill's initial release was a colossal mistake, though. I don't think they'd feel as much pressure to "fix" this one. You do get the original album, untouched by Doug Fake, so might as well get this version if you can't find the original album cheap.

For $30, of course it's worth it. There is no guarantee it will be revisited by any label and even if this were to happen, it would be several years from now, so it depends on whether you'd like to own all the music from the film sooner rather than later.

The? Intrada release of The Mummy has some issues - nothing we're used to from Intrada. The mix is questionable at times?, there are some disturbing noises in a few tracks, the volume difference between the complete score and the original album is conspicious and especially the replications of the film edits do neither do the listening experience a favor, nor are they necessary to satisfy the completists - a weird decision that reminds me of bootleg releases.

It is, however, possible to create a ?completely satisfying listening experience that is complete and chronological, without any noticable volume differences or static noises. If you want to take advantage of the respectively better mix?? (old or new) I would recommend you to do the following:

Take the original album tracks in the brackets (Taureg Attack, Night Boarders, The Caravan, Camel Race, Mumia Attack, The Mummy, The Sand Volcano) and increase their volume + 3dB with a music or video editor, like for example MAGIX Video Deluxe. The louder replicas of these tracks will replace the newly mixed tracks that have sound errors or an inferior? mix.

Delete the complete score tracks in the brackets (The Tauregs Attack, Night Boarders, The Caravan, Camel Race, Mumia Attack, Airplane Ride, The Mummy Attack, The Sand Volcano, End Credits) and replac?e them with the corresponding tracks that you just modified in volume. The two tracks Airplane Ride and End Credits do not have a corresponding track to replace them with.

Now your complete score program should look as follows:

1. Imhotep
2. The Sarcophagus?
3. Taureg Attack (modified Decca album track)
4. Closed Door
5. Undiscovered Creature
6. Off Balance
7. A Key in the Hand
8. The Hanging?
9. Giza Port?
10. Night Boarders (modified Decca album track)
11. The Caravan (modified Decca album track)
12. Camel Race (modified Decca album track)
13. The Prep Room
14. The Mummy Sarcophagus
15. Mumia Attack (modified Decca album track)*
16. A Librarian
17. Discoveries
18. The Plagues
19. The Locusts
20. Never Stop
21. Finish the Job?
22. Regeneration
23. Alley Attack
24. The Flies
25. Sleeping Evy??
26. My Favorite Plague
27. Crowd Control
28. Sand Storm
29. Desert Burial
30. Rebirth
31. The Mummy (modified Decca album track)
32. Escape from the Tomb
33. The Sand Volcano (modified Decca album track)

That's just my recommendation, but I prefer that assembly over the main program that? Intrada provided us. Intrada is great, but this release is not necessarily that great.??

*If you want to keep your ?program complete, you have to separate "The Warden's Bag" from the complete score track "Mumia Attack" and attach?? it to the original album track of "Mumia Attack".?

I've really been enjoying this release with my only real disappointment coming from Goldsmith's gorgeous end title piece being needlessly crossfaded into the editorially created end credits.

I notice from comments that there are film edits in other tracks too, does anyone know which tracks are affected?

Only "Airplane Ride" which is merely an excerpt from "Rebirth" featuring an editorial loop. Simply delete that track.

For the complete score presentation without any film edits, see my list above. Since the new mix partly bothered me, I replaced a few cues with the OST tracks and adopted their volume as indicated and explained.
