"Those who have the expanded album: are there melodies on it not heard on the original album? I'm on the fence about it but I often get disappointed by expanded edition soundtrack because in my opinion most of the times all they offer are just longer editions without any missing or significant melodies"
--------------
I would say this is an upgrade you need to get, if you like the original score or JNH/90's music.
I never really warmed to the 30 minute 'highlights' album, save a few cues, finding it too low-key and minimal, in the main.
I'm hearing LOTS of cues that I like better than the ones previously available.
More gentle, tender thematic scoring tracks.
More exciting action/percussion tracks.
Even the unheard suspense tracks are really well done.
And it sounds really good. Top notch booklet/liner notes too.
This is what expanded editions are all about.

Thanks for the answer!

You're welcome smile
Also..
The book-ending of this score, and it's orig/alt versions, with the propulsive/heroic trailer music, makes for a great start and finish to proceedings.

This is such a different listening experience to the original 30 minute release.
John (spymaster) sums it up perfectly, saying it breathes so much better in its fuller form.
I never did like or take to the first issue, but this one offers so much more.
It ebbs and flows so much better and some of the previously unreleased music is superb.
It's fast becoming one of my favourite JNH scores too.

Does anyone know what the cue is playing in the teaser trailer in the first 50 seconds?
I don't think it's on this soundtrack, but I've been after it for years.

See here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P95R76Mstg4

Kind of sounds like Eric Serra. Any help much appreciated!

Soundtrack.net is the data source for music used in trailers: it says it's Poledouris' THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER.

Bump - because...

It´s really a magnificent score, treated wonderfully by Intrada.

One of the BEST soundtrack expansions out there.
Sends the original crummy 30 minute edition to oblivion.
A revelation in complete form. And much better sound too.
Well Done Intrada.

Agreed Kev. A stunning release which I have played often since it’s release last year.

How can those Thor-type folk ever think that thirty minutes was a perfect listening experience. This score is so much better in expanded form.

Got my copy from Deep Discount today, for a very nice $16 and change. smile Can't wait to give this a listen tonight, as this was one of the earliest Howard scores I ever owned on CD.

Gave it a listen tonight...man, I miss this JNH, when he was just busting out as an exciting new voice in the early 90s.
