2Disc Remastered and Expanded Edition

Jerry Goldsmith’s iconic original score to Paramount Pictures’ 1979 feature film STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE boldly returns with a limited edition 2-CD re-issue from La-La Land Records and Paramount MNusic.

The first big screen voyage of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock was a high budget and ambitious undertaking that introduced Goldsmith’s famous and enduring Star Trek march (later used as the main theme for Star Trek: The Next Generation) as the cornerstone of an epic science fiction musical odyssey. Like the film’s refit starship Enterprise, La-La Land’s lavish 2012 restoration presented the score anew: fully restored, remixed and mastered from the first generation multi-track masters by Bruce Botnick, the original album co-producer and Goldsmith’s long time scoring engineer.

This new 2-CD edition is the official tie-in soundtrack to the forthcoming STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE: THE DIRECTOR’S EDITION, premiering this year on the Paramount Plus streaming service. Post-Production Supervisor/Associate Producer Mike Matessino co-produces the album with Botnick, handling restoration, editing and assembly of the music.

This edition definitively presents the full film score on CD1, continuing through the start of CD2. The program now begins with the long version of the “Overture,” reflective of “The Director’s Edition,” with the short version heard in 1979 now kicking off a section of “Alternates” on CD2, which feature early versions of major score cues that were later reworked. Closing out the presentation is the enduring 1979 soundtrack album program, now re-created from the remixed first generation master material for consistent and superior sound quality throughout the set.

Matessino collaborates with Jeff Bond on the thoroughly researched album notes, which feature interview excerpts by Goldsmith, Botnick and performers Craig Huxley and David Newman. The packaging and 28-page full color booklet are designed by Jim Titus and feature new images from “The Director’s Edition.”

To wind machine, or not to wind machine? That... is the question.

2-disc, instead of the previous 3… and yet this release is expanded.
Thats very intriguing!

It doesn't mean expanded over and above the 3CD, it means it's the expanded film score release.

Of course, we have to wait for the official track list, but I'd guess it drops the album program and raw takes but otherwise brings forward as many of the bonus tracks on top of the film score that will fit.

I assume it includes the version of "Inner Working" that had the wind machine more up in the mix.

But, like I said, let's wait for the track list.

I doubt this will be necessary for those who got the 3CD version.

Cheers

Ok - it’s not identical to the 3 disc but, still, fantastic news for those who missed out first time around. Think I’ll take a shower in scalpers’ tears later.

I must warn you that in future you should delete the words "Remastered and Expanded Original Motion Picture Soundtrack," and replace them with the legend "Previously Remastered and Greatly Expanded from 1979 Edition and Somewhat Expanded from 1999 Edition But Lacking 'Inside Star Trek' CD and Reduced from 2012 Edition Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" if you want to avoid prosecution.

Great news for those who missed the LLL 3CD set.

Absolutely. Keeping this score in print in expanded or complete form is an absolute must, IMHO.

The work Matessino and company put into this release is still nothing short of spectacular, and I hope to see this score around for others to discover.

It also looks like theartwork (specifically, the text style for the Star Trek logo) is in line with the Star Trek II release we recently got from La-La Land.

If it contains basically CD 1 and CD2 in terms of content, it is still an excellent release, IMHO.

Well, panda-man, that still says nothing about the wind machines cues, so that doesn't save him from a mob lynching. ;-)

Glad to see STAR TREK come back in print. If you don't have it yet - shame on you.

Now all we need is that Director's Cut... wink

Exactly. As with the LLL "Goldsmith at Fox" series, the focus is more about keeping certain titles in print and available to new fans or existing fans who missed out. The long-standing fanbase will need to get used to the fact that it's not all about surprising them with new titles, but that it's now important to maintain a consistent level of availability of the classics, so that there can actually be a growing, and not stagnant, fanbase.

The cover uses the same kind of font for the title used for the new issue of Star Trek II.
I wonder if other titles in the series are going to be re-released with similar font.

Yeah, but does it have the Shawn Cassidy song?

This doesn't answer my burning question - where is my third disc?!

I can't find it anywhere, somehow I never got it back in the LLL set after I pulled it out for a while.

I only listened to it once, but wanted to track through it again. And especially upload it into Apple Music, which I had neglected to do.

And now perhaps I never will. How, how will I endure the loss?


Yes I'm kidding sort of, but I was wondering if they would bring back the 3-CD set, and if so, if I would rebuy it just to get that third disk back. And I usually don't care about all the alternates etc.

But it's STTMP. There is no comparison.

I realize you're jesting, but for the information of those who like the "inside dope"... we actually tried to stop the 1999 release because we already knew "The Director's Edition" was happening, but the actions of certain parties caused Paramount to cave not only to let the release come out but also led to us being prevented from including an isolated score track as well the alternate score synced to picture on the DVD that finally came out in 2001.

The 3-CD set done in 2011-12 was from the original masters, as you know, and was done as an ultimate collection of music for this title. Subsequently there was a vinyl release of the main score. Both projects were a great success. But something you may not have noticed is that ALL references to Sony Music were GONE from the vinyl release. Why?? Because it turned out that the original 1979 Columbia Records soundtrack agreement was only for a 15-year term....which means the rights expired in 1994. Therefore... Sony Music had NO RIGHTS TO PUT OUT THE 1999 VERSION, which, by the way, used the incorrect performance for every single track that was added to it, with one small exception.

Paramount Music now controls the soundtrack rights to Star Trek-The Motion Picture and they have since 1994. (They simply didn't know it and they've had to work with Sony Music to settle things up from the past 22 years.) This is now THEIR "Expanded and Remastered Edition" and as far as I'm concerned it is the album that we had wanted to do in 2000, but of course with far superior audio quality that benefited from the involvement of Bruce Botnick and the first generation multi-track transfers, which were run in anticipation of the updated "Director's Edition" that's currently in the works. The 3-CD set is a glorious collectors item to be treasured, but this 2-CD version will now be THE soundtrack album, from Paramount, for Star Trek-The Motion Picture.
