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

I think the misspellings are due to GNP getting the track names from the cue list for the episodes, where they were misspelled and hand-written.

The producers of this set took their cue titles from the score manuscripts, I believe.

I suspect Disc 4 will start with the remainder of the season 1 episode scores, and maybe start and end with the "Remastered" main and end title re-recordings for season 1.

Disc 5, I predict, will be the library cues recorded for season 1, as well as other odds and ends, some of which have never been heard.

Then seasons 2 and 3 would follow the same general pattern.

What is clear is that there was attention paid to the listening experience in arranging the CD contents.

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

Oh, whoops! How could I forget "The Enemy Within?" I didn't check the list in The Music of ST carefully enough.

So yeah, that's four scores remaining, three of which were fairly complete or at least moderately long. (The "Shore Leave" release on GNP's Volume 3 is 17:47 worth of music.) I don't think they can all fit on Disc 4. Probably Disc 5 will have at least one episode score plus the extras.

I love The Enemy Within! Before I had the audio, I was sent scans of all of the documentation and I choked up when I saw the boxes for this score.

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

^Oh, definitely. It's one of my greatest regrets that Sol Kaplan only scored two TOS episodes. His work was fantastic.

(One of my other greatest regrets, if anyone's interested, is that "A Piece of the Action" was stuck with a stock score. Just imagine if Fielding or Fried, say, had gotten to do a full, jazzy original score for that one.)

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

I keep thinking I'm going to have to look this stuff up but now I'm starting to think "Oh, Chris will have done that already."

So, Corbomite was the first produced, right? But it open with Kaplan's fanfare, doesn't it? (I'm making that assumption based on the fact that it is part of Label X's recording of The Enemy Within and it open The Doomsday Machine as well.) So how much later was that recorded? I'm trying to figure out the rhyme and reason of what was recorded when vs. what was used when. Whacky I tells ya.

I'm astounded at how short some of these (to me) "definitive" scores are. Corbomite is only 7 minutes? Balance of Terror is Five?

Just give me Hideous Balok and I'm happy. ('Cause it's also the music used for the Guardian of Forever.) Oh, and all of Charlie X.

BTW, terrific way to roll out the track listings. It's truly an event.

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

I'm pretty sure the reason some of the scores are short is because only the original content is being included, not music lifted from other episodes.

A lot of episodes spent longer in post-production than others due to their visual-effects requirements. "Corbomite" had some pretty elaborate optical shots, requiring three new miniatures and a lot of composite space shots, so that must have delayed its completion. I'd assume that scoring was one of the last stages of post-production, coming after the effects were in. So by the time "Corbomite" was ready for scoring, there was already a fair-sized library of stock cues available to track it with.

Well, that goes without saying, doesn't it? Of course those cues are included with the episodes they were recorded for. No point in duplicating anything. Tallguy's point is that it's surprising how little original music some of these "definitive" episodes had in them.

That wasn't clear to me from what Tallguy said, but if that was his meaning, fair enough.

There's a preview up at trekcore.com with 5 tracks from various episodes. More sample tracks will apparently be published in the coming days. Those two fight themes rock! :-)

Ooh, more interior art at the link too, and a look at the liner notes. Okay, so "City on the Edge" will be on Disc 5, so I take it that means "Enemy Within," "Conscience," and "Shore Leave" will be on Disc 4. And yes, there is a page giving Mullendore's and Fried's bios together.

Ohh, my, and look at the information on those last couple of liner note pages! We get our first listing of library cues (from Season 2, Disc 3) -- and I hope there's some explanation of why cues from second-season episodes would be re-recorded as library cues within the second season, since that seems kind of redundant to me. (Maybe to change their beginnings/endings so they'd stand alone better?) And here's the big prize, credits for the "Way to Eden" songs! "Songs by Arthur Heinemann, Charles Napier, and Craig Robertson, Music Director: Wilbur Hatch." I'm surprised Hatch was still around after Paramount acquired Desilu.

And Courage did the Orion dance from "Whom Gods Destroy?" That's surprising. The credits for that episode said "Theme Music by Alexander Courage, Additional Music by Fred Steiner," so I've always assumed the dance was by Steiner.

Awesome that all the audio samples there are previously unreleased. Some great stuff there -- I've always loved Duning's "Metamorphosis" score. But the revelation there was Steiner's "Battle Music" from "Elaan of Troyius." I've always loved it, but hearing it in the clear for the first time, it's amazing how much grandeur and power and cinematic richness it has. It totally blew me away. I have to wonder if it was mixed badly in the episode soundtrack, because so much of its texture seemed to be lost.

You are not alone; I really love the cue heard when the horned dog/transporter test fails. I think part of that was used again in "City on the Edge of Forever" as Kirk declares his love for Edith/Spock telling him she must die.

Lovely, strong stuff!

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

Oh, and Indysolo slipped in another listing ahead of my post. I was right about Disc 4's contents. Let's see...

"The Enemy Within" and "The Conscience of the King" have never had any of the original recordings released, but both were on Label X's Star Trek Volume 2 album from 1985, arranged into symphonic suites by Clyde Allen and performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Tony Bremner. Also there have been two album releases of versions of "Beyond Antares": an instrumental version on Leonard Nimoy's album Mr. Spock's Music from Outer Space, and a version sung by Nichelle Nichols on her album Out of This World.

Cues that have not previously had a version released include:

"Enemy Within":
Beam Up/The Evil Kirk
Brandy
The Lascivious Captain
Kirk’s Log
Evil Fury
Confrontation
The Prone Body/Shivering Sulu/No Repair
What to Do?
The Evil Grin
Spock Takes Over
Evil Triumphs
Two Into One
One Captain Kirk

"Conscience of the King":
Dagger Sweet’ner/Go for Baroque/Play-Off
Dr. Leighton’s Face/Bridge #1
Quasi-Sex (Theme From Star Trek, jazz version)
Kirk and Lenore/He’s Dead
Spaceship/5 Sex and a ½/Play-Off #2
Spaceship Play-On/Toast and Corridor
Short Bridge
Poison
Play-On #2/Quick Ship/Phaser Overload
Kodos?/Voice Test
Play-Off #3
Ship Play-On/Woodwind Fanfare/Reilly Gone
Go for Baroque
I Know That Voice/All Ghosts Dead
Bridge #2

So, in other words, most of the score there, and the majority of "Enemy."

"Shore Leave" was released on GNP's Vol. 3; previously unreleased cues are:

Finnegan
Tiger/Costume/Birds/Samurai
Dummy/Like Real
Strafing
Ruth to Commercial (2nd Ruth)
