You'll get to hear both main titles a few times on our set and you'll be able to hear the difference for sure.

Seriously, this is happening? A boxed set of ALL the original scores for ALL the episodes?

WANT! I've wanted that basically all my life. I've got everything on CD that I could find, but there's so much more that's never been released.

What, when, where, and how much?

Here's the official announcement. :-)

For Immediate Release
August 8, 2012

COMING SOON FROM LA-LA LAND RECORDS
STAR TREK®: THE ORIGINAL SERIES SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION

Burbank, CA -- La-La Land Records proudly announces its forthcoming release of STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION, a limited edition 15-CD box set, showcasing all episode scores as heard in all three original seasons of the landmark sci-fi television series STAR TREK (1966-1969). This special collection of ground-breaking, iconic music, from one of television’s most acclaimed and beloved series, has been newly remastered from studio elements and features hours of stellar material previously unreleased in any format.

Original series composers Alexander Courage, George Duning, Jerry Fielding, Gerald Fried, Sol Kaplan, Samuel Matlovsky, Joseph Mullendore and Fred Steiner are all represented in this deluxe collection, their historic work meticulously assembled, restored and remastered to ensure the finest presentation and sound quality possible. A 100-Page CD Booklet, featuring exclusive, in-depth liner notes from film music writer and Star Trek historian Jeff Bond, complements this attractive set, which is housed in a hardcover slipcase.

The collection is expected to be released in late fall 2012. It will be a limited pressing, but the total number of units to be manufactured has yet to be determined. You can help the label decide how many units will ultimately be pressed by visiting www.lalalandrecords.com now and signing up for the STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION MAILING LIST.

STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION is licensed by CBS Consumer Products and produced in cooperation with GNP Crescendo Records, the longtime home of pioneering classic Star Trek television and film soundtracks. GNP Crescendo’s Neil Norman has allowed for episode scores previously and exclusively released by Crescendo to be newly expanded and remastered for this box set, in order to make the collection as comprehensive as possible.

This release marks the kind of authoritative collection of original Trek series music that fans have desired for decades. “For 45 years, those like me who love this music could only dream about having it all,” remarks album producer Lukas Kendall. “This is the major, historical piece of sci-fi music, television music and pop culture music that we have always wanted to release in a definitive form for the collector.”

“A majority of the music featured in this set has never been released,” adds Executive Album Producer and La-La Land Records President MV Gerhard. “Of that unreleased music, there is a fairly large percentage that no one has ever heard because it was written and recorded for the show, but never featured in the episodes.” Regarding some of these previously unreleased tracks, Album Music Editor Neil S. Bulk comments, “No original music from season three, apart from the main title, has ever been released. It’s really distinct and definitely Star Trek… It’s what people have always wanted.”

“The original show was very theatrical,” says Trek historian and liner notes writer Jeff Bond. “So the music reflected that. It was huge and very expressive and thematic. And that makes it very exciting to listen to apart from the show.”

The original Trek series scores team with action, adventure and drama, but they are also infused with deep emotion and the greatness of the human spirit. Such characteristics have kept these richly orchestrated tracks vital and relevant decades beyond their original recording. “Trek was always about the human condition,” remarks Co-Executive Album Producer and La-La Land Records VP, Matt Verboys. “And the scores have that in it and I think that’s what has made both the show and its music timeless.”

HOW UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME.

I've had the original three Crescendo CDs forever. But there are flaws there, like the score for Where No Man Has Gone Before is woefully incomplete. (Disk 2, the Amok Time / Doomsday Machine CD, is one of the greatest CDs of all time.) Got the Fred Steiner suites, but they're short. Got the re-arrangement suites of episodes like Paradise Syndrome and Is There In Truth No Beauty, but honestly the performances are not all that great. The one of Enemy Within just hints at how great the music is, it doesn't really re-create it.

And just two months away! Incredible.

Wow, this must have been a labor of love. What an opportunity, for the people on this project who got access. I traded comments on a discussion board once, with a guy who saw George Duning's notes on the score for -- I think it was Is There In Truth No Beauty -- in the UCLA or USC library, and Duning had written a note in the margin where he interpolates Steiner's black ship motif. That was cool. This must have been so much cooler.

Wow. Best goddam news I have heard in ages. WOW!

Re: First Season Theme Music Change

Now, welcome aboard the "long train ride to November." What would normally go by in a flash ("wow, Thanksgiving already?") is going to go so damned slowly as the date of release approaches.

I'm with you on the other CDs. The Cage/ WNMHGB was great but I still remembering the crushing disappointment when it totally left out the fight music of the second pilot. Of all the tracks to skip…

"Fight on Captain's Theme". Tracked into the Journey To Babel soundtrack.

Nope, you're thinking of the music we first heard in Mirror Mirror during the sickbay fight. That was recorded for the second season. The Where No Man fight music was also used in Space Seed and other first season scuffles.
