Hear, hear. If you value the work, then you owe something to the people who created it. Especially if you want there to be more works like it in the future. If they don't make enough profit because people steal the work instead of paying for it, then they won't get to do more.

I do okay, as long as people don't steal my work.

Amen to that. IndySolo, you got my money the day you'll take it, man.

Work harder and faster!

I've downloaded a few torrents from time to time, so I can't be too holier-than-thou. But honestly, that's a fairly assholish comment to make here. Especially given the presence here of people who have actually labored on the compilation, and who have been pretty forthcoming about answering questions etc.

This is one I'll be paying for, because I want the CDs and the booklet, and because I want to contribute in a modest way to rewarding the people who made this happen. I've wanted this music for around 40 years, give or take, and I feel some amazement at living in a world where it will actually be available.

I guess it is inevitable that the stuff will eventually find its way onto torrents. If there winds up being only one CD pressing, and no presence on iTunes / Amazon mp3 store, then maybe that's even a good thing. People in 2020 should be able to get this content, somehow. But I hope it doesn't get there for a few years. I guarantee it won't get there from me.

(But it will be on my mp3 player within a couple days.)

Pending any major catastrophes (I don't foresee any) my audio work is all done. We have masters for all 15 discs that have been vetted and we're still listening to them and making sure everything is good.

We're in the artwork phase now. Things are looking nice there. Everything is on schedule.

Rest assured, some of the rent will be coming your way in November! Maybe more if I hang around the site for "too long!"

Quoted for truth.

This is one I'll be paying for, because I want the CDs and the booklet, and because I want to contribute in a modest way to rewarding the people who made this happen. I've wanted this music for around 40 years, give or take, and I feel some amazement at living in a world where it will actually be available.
You are not kidding. Ever since discovering TOS in 1971, I wondered when something like this would be possible. Now that we're on the eve of a dream come true, who could be so dismissive of the ownership and hard work just to get something for "free?"

I guess such a person will scream that life is unfair if they are busted by the law.

Re: La-La Land to release 15-disc original series score set

I just spent 2.5 years of my life writing and producing a book, so it really ticks me off hearing people talk about copying somebody's very hard, meticulous, long-expected work. All the people whining about price, how much total have you spent on pretty worthless crap over the years? How many different versions of seasons of scifi tv shows have you purchased? Wow. This is a huge deal. If it's too much for you at this time, I get that, cuz I've had times in my life literally emptying a piggy bank to buy frozen burritos at the IGA. But for the amount of necessary work, and the evident care, the price seems fair, given the niche market. Huge kudos to you all for undertaking and doing this project.

I would be as ticked off, but it really isn't worth my time and energy.

I'd rather look forward to the awesomeness that will inevitably be purchased in November.
