Oh well, the Season 2 theme without the cat noise must be lost.

I think it has one of the best intros.

Wonderful release, looking forward to ordering! It's the only item I want from the Black Friday batch, and I'm delighted to be able to get it! Well done La La Land!

Brilliant! Never got into the show, but this is a no-brainer to order and a welcome expansion over the single Crescendo cd. I'm surprised by another Irwin Allen box as I thought LOST IN SPACE didnt sell well. I hope these are lucrative enough to keep LLL doing them.

Great surprise and best release in the batch! smile

Interesting to see the rejected Mullendore theme included. The recording was thought lost according to the booklet of the old GNC Crescendo set. The bonus disc of the GNP set had the theme by Alexander Courage on it, can't see it on the track listing now. Perhaps included somewhere.

Love the artwork on this set. Don't know much or anything about the music.

I should come as a surprise to no one that I'm content with my original release (in the Irwin Allen box), and that goes for the other expanded Williams releases as well.

But I do remember tuning in to a couple of episodes of LotG in the mid 80s, when it aired on Super Channel (we had a cable package at the time). I was more into THE TIME TUNNEL, however (LOST IN SPACE, I didn't see at all at the time). But I can't remember anything of them, really, except for "The Crash", which I saw up again a few years ago due to the Williams connection.

In any case, this is surely a treat for fans of the show and the music! So congrats!

Why would they include their BF titles in the sale? That's financial suicide. Maybe you can ask them to hold onto your Special Offers order and combine it with your BF order?

They wouldn't. "Special Offers" are sales on specific titles, and don't effect the prices of other titles including Black Friday announcements. Would be nice to get combined shipping, is all.

I wonder if that Alexander Courage theme on the GNP set was in fact the one by Mullendore.

Even though I have the old GNP Crescendo release of LotG, I had completely forgotten that Courage had a rejected score for "The Crash".

Agreed, I consider it JW's finest opening theme. I was hoping to hear it clean, but if they couldn't find it, then it's gone. I remember asking Neil Norman about it decades ago, and he couldn't find it back then.

This is a great "out of left field" release and an instant buy from me.
