I played it recently just to convince myself that CD's, when produced well, are still far superior to vinyl in terms of longevity.

It had a bit of corrosion on the disc and though my old CD player struggled with it, my current DVD/CD player is able to play it without a problem. Not sure why this player is ok and the old one wasn't but not complaining.


And you failed (much like the CD) the scientific method by trying to prove your point instead of attempting to test a hypothesis! wink

Interestingly this CD carried the old AAD, ADD, and DDD information.

Star Trek TMP: AAD


Would that mean TMP was taken from another source than the album since the original LP presentation was recorded digitally?

Interesting. I didn't know that.

There's a group chat here about whether The Black Hole or ST:TMP was the first digital recording.

One person states "My understanding is that THE BLACK HOLE was the first fully digital soundtrack, while STAR TREK was the first analogue soundtrack digitally mixed. "

But that would mean it would be ADD, not AAD.

I liked how Eidelman closed the album Rosenman's Voyage Home finale. That score took a lot of shit from collectors and Trekkies, so it was nice for Eidelman to recognize the piece as the glorious (if derivative) finale that it was.

This album came out at the perfect time for me. I was 10-11 years old and just starting to get into Goldsmith and Horner (my Rosenman appreciation would take a few more years to get going), so it was a nice sampler. Of course, it was rendered redundant within a year, when I got my hands on the actual full albums, but it was the perfect stepping-stone.

Solium has just posted some terrific alternate cover art for this title in the Custom Cover Art II thread if anyone is interested.

As I recall, the liner notes for LLL's release state that they utilized the original digital masters for the 1979 album on their set, also stating that only that one day's worth of recordings were made using the digital format.

Thanks for the nod. smile The sheet music in the background isn't just any sheet music. It's the theme for Star Trek:TMP.

Love the attention to detail!

I wonder if you might consider doing a version that uses the official ST classic film font rather than the classic TV font for the title treatment?

I once posted a historic timeline about these kind of questions...
