Can anybody recall hearing a soundtrack album in which the main title was different on the album while the rest of the score was taken from the film? Two examples I can name are "One Eyed Jacks" and "From Russia With Love"

Morricone's, Giù La Testa (Duck You Sucker ect.). The main title on the album isn't the main title on the film at all, I'm not even sure that this track is in the film (great track though). The music heard at the start of the film is found on the third track of the third disc of the two-disc release, Marcia Degli Accattoni. What an absolutely fantastic soundtrack!

I assume you talking about when it is by the same composer but if it is not then I have one for you: Eraser. The Main Title heard in the film is by Walter Werzowa but the Main Title on the soundtrack is the original unused Main Title by Alan Silvestri. But since not everyone knows that it is by two different composers then one might think it is something like what you are asking about, I guess.

edit: I misunderstood the question of the original poster when I first read and responded. I'll come back here if I think of some examples, as I know I've encountered a few over the years but none are coming to mind at the moment.

Total Recall: the last minute or so of "The Dream" on the original album is different from the film version, which was eventually released by Quartet on CD

Was certainly true of the original ALIEN album, back when there was not even any information concerning the two completely different "Main Titles".

The EON "Casino Royale" doesn't have the film version of the title song (an absolute belter by the late Chris Cornell) and also "GoldenEye" had an album arrangement., I think "Skyfall" also had a different version.

Superman The Movie OST was not the film version.

Also, somewhat related, on Nightmare On Elm Street 3, the track titled "Opening" was not the opening at all. It played when Sister Helena was telling Neil about Freddy's origins nearly 2/3 into the movie. The actual "Main Title" was a slightly different version of "The Dream House" on the OST.

One Eyed Jacks... really?

Mikis Theodorakis's Blue (Terence Stamp film) main title - although same track - was definitely different in the film than on the LP.

Jarre's, The Night of the Generals. Album & film are really different. On the film it's a bit of a collarge of themes, whereas it's much more straight forward on the album.

The one in the film has a different ending, and the marimba which comes in the middle of the track is more pronounced.

Dear Bill, the Terence Stamp starred-in western Blue was the work of Manos Hadjidakis, not Mikis Theodorakis. It's not all-greek when you get down to it.

"Zachariah" (Jimme Haskell)

The film version has a drum kit beat, but the sample online, in the last ten seconds where the beat would kick in, isn't there. ALL the websites have the same preview, it's like they all go to one place for it. No other place to sample it without registering for something (Spotify, etc.).

Good spot. My memory is shite. I had the LP so i shouldve remembered. Anyway, regardless of composer, its different.

Doesn't the second printing of the Kritzerland release have this as an 'alternate' Main title?

As I remember the first release had the main title from the album & the second release had the newly found main title as heard in the film, but there's hardly any difference between them, not enough to be listed in this thread anyway.

And...it's a fantastic release. The sort of soundtrack tape discovery (like 55 Days At Peking) that we just don't seen to get these days.

That's not correct. Kritzerland's first CD has the Main Title as heard in the film. The Encore Edition CD has an alternative version and it is considerably different. As I said in a previous thread:

Although the thematic material is the same, the arrangements and orchestration are very different, giving a more subdued, romantic sounding Main Title. Assuming this was Friedhofer’s first version, it’s not surprising that he decided (or more probably asked, in view of all the changes made to film and score) to make it sound harsher to suit the revenge theme. The cue also extends from the title sequence into the opening scene of the bank hold-up, where Brando is nonchalantly sitting on the counter eating a banana, and ends on an ominous downward chord. That music is in the film but isn’t included on disc 2 as part of the OST.

Fair enough, I obviously mis-remembered. I do have both releases, I'll have to dig out the second one & check out the alternate main title.

The 1967 United Artists LP on HOUR OF THE GUN opens with a 'pop' rendition of Goldsmith's theme that is simultaneously different from the rest of the score & not in the picture.
