Intrada released Transformers The Movie on CD. Rights owner SONY Music.
Wouldn´t it possible for Intrada released also Transformers & G.I. Joe TV series music on CD?
Don´t know if music rights belongs to SONY or solely to HASBRO.


Hasbro.

MV of LLL made things pretty clear in 2018, after Enjoy The Ride Records released Transformers on vinyl:

"We are currently not working on a transformers release nor do I forsee one in the future. No one at the studios or labels care about cds any more. To them its dead. The only physical product they want to focus on is vinyl. We had to make a deal recently where we had to agree to do a vinyl pressing in order to get the rights for a CD release. They say it's hard out there being a pimp, but I think it's even harder being a soundtrack producer who only wants to focus on CD releases."


Thank you for clarifying this situation
LLL´s DC animation scores are my treasure CD releases and I still can´t understand this current vinyl dominancy.

If only there was not need to do so much exercise to manage LPs collection and gramophone.
Because with small & easy portable CD and with device which use laser for reading music without harm to medium it is too much simple.smile
It is easier to get things complicated than simplified.

Off topic:
I was thinking about buying gramophone only for Transformes LP release, but I found thread where is mentioned that it is not complete release and also there are some shortening of tracks.
Hope this would not be G.I. Joe case.

This would be nice kickstarter/indigogo project for Transformers & G.I. Joe TV animation scores CD release.
Any labels interested? smile


Transformers wasn't complete, because a lot of music was originally from G.I. Joe. Besides, Transformers has a lot of score tracks, which would never fit on one cd or record.

Tracks aren't shortened as far as I know. In the show a lot of music was pasted and cut, so perhaps that's where the confusion comes from.


Yes, in recently revisiting the initial two GI Joe mini-series and some early S1 episodes, it seems that there was less original music here than for the Transformers 3-part mini-series and S1 episodes. In any given episode of the GI Joe mini-series you would inevitably here all the same cues. But in Transformers, for instance, you might hear one once but not again until several episodes into the main season. But as was pointed out above, some of the music cues heard in Transformers was intended for another show, such as Dungeons & Dragons.

While it would be nice to have complete releases of every note, I've waited long enough for these albums to be thrilled nevertheless. Having that official album from ETR of G1 Transformers music in stereo is a treasure for me and I'm sure this one for GI Joe will be the same. Now, the question is, where should I order from?

www.hhv.de , that's where I ordered it from, very thrustworthy dealer here in Europe. In the U.S.A.? I'm not sure where to order.

It's a treasure for me as well. This is the record I wanted as a kid, it took 30+ years, but here it is. A cd would be nice, but I'm one of those people who never stopped playing records, so great stuff!

Thanks for the website suggestion! I might see what US online retailers will be offering this LP, although there is that link for the site posted earlier in this thread that I could try.

Okay, so I did the simple Google search (duh!) and found it offered on several US retail sites, including Deep Discount and Amazon. It doesn't seem to be a limited edition, as the Transformers LP was from ETR. In addition, these sites all seem to list 11/20/2020 as the release date, whereas Red Yeti Records says it ships 10/2.

In the 80s GI Joe was an organization, not a person. And they were 6”. Although they did release a few 12” versions of these action figures in the 90s but the weren’t the same as the original 12” G.I. Joe action figures.


The Real American Hero era of G.I. Joe toys and cartoons from 1982-1994 were 3.75", not 6". 6" Joes just made their debut a couple of months ago.

Really excited that music from the G.I. Joe cartoons are a possibility now! But this really NEEDS to be released digitally and/or on CD at some point, too!

Interestingly, this like it was being a soundtrack fan decades ago, pre-CD age, when we just hoped to get any album of music from our favorite movies and TV shows, even if it was just 30-45 minutes.

Oops. My bad. I got the numbers messed up.

The new Destro figure is such a hoot! Here he is taking a meeting at home.

I would love to have every second of this score, but this sums up what I like about a record. I found the Transformers Movie soundtrack in 1993 on LP, would I have loved a complete score? Yes! But I was so happy having the 10 minutes of score then, I played it a lot more than all those complete and extended versions that came later. Less is more sometimes.

This is great news. This LP is popping up for pre-order now. Hopefully future volumes of Joe and Transformers music will be forthcoming. I have the first Transformers one and love it. And fingers crossed that other Hasbro owned properties like Jem and M.A.S.K. will also get music releases. Jem is a no-brainer; its a show about a pop band; there are usually at least 3 original songs in every episode, plus a cool 80s synthy score.

I agree! Although weirdly, the page for the LP at Red Yeti, which is where I pre-ordered from, is now gone, so I'm not sure what that's about. And I reached out to my local professional LP transfer person to make sure he's still available for this kind of work, which he is. What's interesting to read on some sites is that some think this is a 2 LP set, when it's pretty obvious it's one LP. The price and 40 minute run time are clear indications it's one LP, I just think some are confused by the multitude of tracks, but it's just cause they're short cues.

I noted that the page for this LP was no longer available at Red Yeti Records, even after I had pre-ordered, so I inquired to find out more. They took down the page as they aren't taking any more pre-orders and confirmed that the LP is still set for release on 11/20, which is the same that Amazon notes as well. We'll see who gets their copy first!
