There is a scene in the film where Jack is driving over the bridge and it’s accompanied by a very short version of the main theme. Does anyone know if this is tracked in from another cue. It doesn’t appear on the original album.

It's an alternate take of "Jack Leaves Elaine's Apartment", but edited down. It's preserved on the Blu-ray's isolated score

Received my package yesterday! I intend to fully dive into the musical contents later this week, but just from the samples I've heard, this looks like a fantastic release and the definitive presentation of this score. It's also great to finally have the film version of "Subway Station" and, as a bonus, the Ralph Grierson piece (which I tried to identify on Shazam numerous times but without luck)

And BrendonKelly, I was wrong: there is no alternate take. That bit of music is simply tracked and abbreviated from "Jack Leaves Elaine's Apartment"

Thanks for confirming this. I thought it was but then thought I was mistaken.

What’s the difference between Subway Station on the first release and the film version? I know it’s been split into two cues (although in the film it overlaps as it does on the original release).

On the 2011 album, the track "Subway Station" contained both "7M1 Heavy Traffic" and "8M1 Subway Station" combined together. You can hear "Subway Station" begin at 2:47 into that track, with "Heavy Traffic" continuing until 3:09.

On the 2022 album, now 7M1 is in its own track ("Snippets/Heavy Traffic"), and so is 8M1 ("Subway Station")

8M1 has two versions, where the saxophone solo was a completely different improvisation between each version.

The 2011 album only contained the version that wasn't used in the film, leaving the film version unreleased.

On the 2022 album, they kept that unused version in the main program, and put the version used in the film in the bonus tracks.

I’ve always loved that track not only from 48hrs but also from the Commando trailer!

Thanks for the detail Jason. Looks like I am double dipping!!

Heavy Traffic being combined with Subway Station always bothered me on the old album. Both cues, but Heavy Traffic in particular, stand so well on their own that the combo always took the listening pleasure away for me.

This presentation now (together with the film version of Subway Station), really is how it should be presented IMO and I’m very thankful that Intrada decided to present the score this way.

Also from an archival standpoint I think it’s important to preserve these classic landmark scores with each cue separated.

Made some new discoveries on this wonderful set. The biggest one is that "Subway Station" as heard in the film is actually an edit of two versions! Both of them included on the set, naturally. And "Aerobics" on this set ends without fading out, compared to the earlier edition.

There is one factual error in the booklet, though: it says that this edition was derived from the original mixes by Shawn Murphy. But according to IMDB, Dan Wallin was the score mixer for this film; Murphy mixed the sequel.

Factual error aside, this is a great set, and I'm happy to have it smile

Very cool. I’m always happier without unnecessary cross fades.
