One thing I have to say if anyone (Varese?) decides to release any more Lost music aside from already what is commercially available...I hope they include a decent version of Sawyer's Theme.

Of all the countless themes represented from the show on Varese's discs, Sawyer's Theme is the least represented, in my estimation. Anyone who read my previous post in this thread understands that I have been meticulously examining Giacchino's music episode by episode, disc by disc, season by season, theme by theme, and one of the things that sticks out the most is the conspicuous absence of variations on Sawyer's Theme.

Indeed on the Varese discs there are a few...but they are quick and none of the tracks are wholly dedicated to Sawyer's theme. Here is a representation of the theme for those interested:

http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Sawyer%27s_Theme

Again, it is only represented on the Varese discs ever-so-briefly, the best representation being the last 15 or so seconds of the cue "Dharma Delinquent" from the Season 5 disc. It's a great theme, and as Sawyer is a major character, I feel his theme deserves more attention.

What's just as compelling is a variation on Sawyer's theme that is not on any Varese disc. It is featured most prominently when he (mistakenly) kills his parents' "killer" in the first season in the rain, or more prominently in his confrontation with Anthony Cooper in the hold of The Black Rock ship in the Season 3 episode "The Brig":

http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Original_Sawyer%27s_Theme

Truly haunting and wonderful stuff.

So in summary, if (when?) expansions of Giacchino's Lost music surfaces commercially, I hope that Sawyer and his themes are paid their due respect!

Forgive me if i'm wrong, but isn't the opening version of the exploration theme in that youtube video on the Season 3 soundtrack? Disc 1, Track 26 'Juliet Is Lost'.

I know I'm very late to the party, just thought I'd add it just incase it was overlooked smile

I'm sure he was just momentarily confused. Of course the opening of that video is from Juliet Is Lost; the entire video is made up of OST tracks.

It's confusing because he linked to the LostPedia article FOR Juliet Is Lost, and mentions the other OST tracks that contain the theme that are pointed out in that article without seeming to realize that the theme of course also appears in the track the article is about....

I'm sure in the THREE YEARS since he's figured it out razz

Wow, I wrote a lot of words and sentences about Lost a few years ago. eek

Makes me want to start watching the series all over again!

whatevtrev1, thanks for the assist, even though it was already "previously...on Lost"

Haha no probs, I'm sure you had it figured out by now. Mainly just came here to add my voice to those wishing for more unreleased music from the show. Recently just completed my first rewatch since it ended, and noticed a lot of awesome music that aren't on the TEN discs that already exist out there. smile

Film Music Reporter has info on the new "Lost" concert album with a link to one track.

Unfortunately it will be released as an LP and digital with no CD.

This is the way of the future, people are not buying CD's. I would shock you if I told you how many of some older Varese titles sold, BIG titles. It's very sad, but true frown

I do hope CDs will have their renaissance just like LPs have now. CD is my favourite format hands down.
