Was this posted anyplace? Is it legit? Is FSM going to put any other projects on Amazon / iTunes / whatever?

Lukas confirmed this as a rather exceptional case a few weeks ago. I think he suggested that it is unlikely that this will happen with other FSM releases.

Yes, this is the exception, not the rule. In most cases (possibly all other cases), FSM obtains CD rights only, and cannot offer downloads.

And on eMusic, where I've downloaded two discs worth so far...

I'm leery of buying FSM on iTunes or anywhere similar due to the situation a couple months ago. I hope if FSM music becomes available for download legitimately that it'll be announced here...

Lukas has confirmed that this is legit.

Yes. These are actually offered under FSM's own name.

We posted this a while back too on SAE's news, though we only specified iTunes.

March 29 - Now available on itunes: 12 of the 14 discs of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION: THE RON JONES PROJECT. Go HERE to sample the itunes track lists, or HERE for the physical box set. It truly is...The Best of Both Worlds!

I didn't realize iTunes was in the business of offering bootlegs for sale.

Ok, I'm gonna bite. Great price!

I only really remember "Music for Stern Faces before Commercial Break" from this series so of the ones on AmazonMp3, what is the best album to buy?

Or if anyone can list their top 4 albums from the Ron Jones project?

It's not, but they can't be privy to finding out if evetry single company is telling the truth that they have the rights to release something. It's no different than Tsunami discs at HMV or whatever else people have mention in the past.

I think gmontag451 was referring to the Lassie tracks that popped up on iTunes about 2 months ago, which Lukas indicated were "pirated".

Here's the thread: http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=77748&forumID=1&archive=0

BJBien, in one of the threads about the box set I asked that exact question. The consensus favorites were disc 2 and disc 9, followed by discs 11 and 12.

Also, eMusic's price is 5.99 per disc. But their bitrate is 220-256 VBR MP3, a slight bit below Amazon's 256 CBR MP3 (and well below iTunes 256 M4A if you believe M4A is inherently better sounding than MP3). And you have to become an eMusic member, which means you commit to spending a certain amount per month there (my membership is $20/month). Their selection is getting better for film scores all the time, but they're REALLY great for classical.

VBR is better than 256.
Though Amazon usually uses VBR anyway.

Amazon using Mp3 VBR using Lame3.97 and in some RARE cases, CBR 256 also using Lame.

My version of TRON LEGACY ranges from 223-267 VBR
