Which track is 'Ode to Joy (Alternate)' from the previous release? is it one of 'The Vault' alternates?

From what I can hear, all the elements from "Ode to Joy (Alternate)" from LLL 2011/17 are present on the "The Vault (Film Edit)" track from the 30th anniversary edition. The only difference is the bell sound heard at 1:27 on the "The Vault (Film Edit)", which was borrowed from the alternate take.

Thanks Marty! Mine should be arriving today or tomorrow along with 'Harry Potter' and 'Schindler's List' and I can't wait to listen to them all!

One new track that I've been going back to a lot recently is the 'Under The Table (His Bag Is Missing) (Film Edit)'. I LOVE the mood it sets up!

And correct me if I'm wrong, but starting at 0:41 on the same track, would you say it's accurate that this portion of the 'Synthesizer Jingle' is it's most complete raw form without any other music playing over it?

Isn't this track just the xmas bell jingles without the orchestral overlays?
That's why I'm not getting the whole film mix/film edit thing?

The overlays over the jingles end 40 seconds into the track. After that is just the jingles that one could make a continuous loop out of.

Hi there, this was a fantastic release and worth the double dip, I'm trying to assemble a more complete edit and I was wondering if anyone knew what the string quartet is playing after Takagi’s speech and during Holly speaking to Ellis and Lucy. I'm not familiar with classical music so I wouldn't know where to even begin!

It's Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G Major (Allegro Moderato), by Bach, according to the credits

Sorry that's not it, although it does play before Takagi's speech and when John arrives, there's another song that play's, I saw someone on a earlier page say that the three classical pieces are Bach, Haydn and Beethoven, so I'm guessing it's the Haydn one? But no idea which one it could be.

I love the extended opening in “The Phone Goes Dead” in the bonus section. Sounds like Kamen had fun experimenting with the orchestration. Very cool.

Your video got nixed by copyright claim from Fox.

In the words of Hans from my preferred cut of the film,

Annoy them.

I have two answers to that question. First answer, if you like the Die Hard score, all you need to have is the La-La Land mind-blowing 3-CD Die Hard 30th Anniversary Edition, which features the complete score in its most perfect presentation ever and so much more. Second answer, if you are a crazy Die Hard score completist (like me!) who needs to have every single piece of music featured in the movie, even barely noticeable source music, then you need the mind-blowing 3-CD Die Hard 30th Anniversary Edition plus four other tracks that were not included on this set. As I stated in an earlier post on this thread, all of the original score music composed by Michael Kamen is present on the set and, to my knowledge, the only tracks missing from the set are source music from other composers/artist (easily available on many releases for more than a century in some cases): the three pieces of classical music playing at the Nakatomi Christmas party and the song playing while Argyle is on the phone in the back of the limo. They are as follows:

Bach - Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G Major, Movement 1 - Plays before Takagi's speech and when McClane arrives at the Christmas party

Haydn - String Quartet in G major, Opus 77 No. 1, Movement 1 - Plays after Takagi's speech while Holly walks around the office with Ellis and speaks on the phone with her daughter and Paulina.

Beethoven - Ode to Joy for string quartet from Symphony No. 9 - Plays while McClane speaks with Holly in Ellis's office and as the terrorists arrive at the party.

Stevie Wonder - Skeletons - Plays while Argyle is on the phone in the back of the limo.

By the way, I totally understand the initial question about the Haydn track. Here's the story of how I found it. For many years, I had the same question and nowhere was this info to be found on the internet (even nowadays, still nothing). And I really had searched a lot. So a few years ago, I was listening to my local radio classical music station as I sometimes do when I want to unwind and by pure coincidence, the Die Hard Haydn track played on the air... My jaw dropped: finally that mysterious piece of music could be identified! And, unless I am wrong, I think I would be to my own disbelief the first one today to link that Haydn track to Die Hard somewhere on the internet. Who knew!? If that really is the case: Merry Christmas! wink

I agree, I find the Film Mix vs Film Edit thing a little bit confusing too. My interpretation for that track is that the orchestral part was dropped as you already mentioned. However the original "Under the Table" track's duration is 1:59 but the "Under The Table (His Bag Is Missing)(Film Edit)" is 1:25. I think that because they did some editing to the cue's length to match the film version's length, it is more than just a different mix but also and edited version. Probably that the Edit status wins over the Mix status? Again, it's only my interpretation and I could be wrong.

For the record, you are right, awesome track!!

Does anyone know where the performance of Beethoven's 9th (Disc 2, Track 10) is taken from? Seems to be older, and as is, not particularly good, but still, where is it from?
