Sometimes I use this tool so search all of craigslist at once, every once in a while I come across cool finds but this one was a bit odd. I'm assuming it's a fan creation, but curious if folks have ever seen this before?

I know we all consider the LLL versions the best versions available, but anyone ever seen these before?

Star Trek episodes soundtracks cd lot



Its looks like someone created CDs or has CDs broken down by each episode. I am just assuming this is a fan home creation.

I'm certain your suspicion is correct. Moreover, I wouldn't assume these were necessarily of good quality. My guess is they were downloaded from somewhere and burned onto these discs and who knows what those downloads sounded like.

Someone probably just ripped the box set and then burned individual episode CDs. Seems like a lot of trouble to go to for Craigslist, but maybe someone will pay a fortune...

They're asking $20. big grin. Seems like the shipping cost to the buyer would be more than that.

Also, sometimes, a non-film score buff uses "soundtrack" broadly to refer to the entire audio component. So these may be simply the audio of complete "Star Trek" episodes (dialog, sound effects, music) simply for falling asleep to, or what somebody used on portable CD players or a car CD player on long trips back in the day, etc. Sort of a modern equivalent to the old practice of using a tape recorder to record the audio from a TV speaker.

Someone in my family has all the episodes recorded on reel to reel.

Except the episodes we see didn't have scores written for them. They used stock and library cues. This very well can just be audio recordings of the episodes themselves.

Geez, just ask the seller. Finding bootlegs is not breaking news.

Seems likely. Anyway, if you have the series on DVD or Blu-ray, and you have the LLL CDs, you'll never in your life actually play these recordings, whatever they are. They'll just take up space, and they will be one more pile of stuff your heirs have to dispose of when you depart this life.

Scores I'd understand because I'm "one of us," but the only purpose I can imagine for burning the episodes' complete audio soundtracks to CD would be so a CD-tethered (like me) fan can listen to the episodes on a portable CD player, like one would an audio book.

Indeed. What does seem to be breaking news however is that the mods haven't locked this thread, since bootleg talk has always been forbidden previously...
