I really wish someone from LaLa would make a statement about how it's doing sales-wise, because I'd really like to know.
Not that they really need to say anything, but MV Gerhard shared this at the Film Score Monthly message board, "Let put this all in perspective:

We received nearly 1000 orders in less than 15 minutes...and a shitload more since 1:15 pm on Dec 4.

We have 12 people (give or take) working on processing and packing orders from 8 am to 9 pm, no weekend breaks.

Thank you for your patience

MV"

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

Here's a question (assuming this hasn't already been discussed). There were different versions of the main title theme at the beginning of the episodes. "The Cage" had one version and "Where No Man Has Gone Before" had a different and more electronic style version, both versions without narrative. The early episodes of the first season had a similar electronic style theme with the Kirk narrative and then later we got the more orchestral version with Kirk's narrative. In season two we got yet another version and the accompanying vocals seemed more prominent and yet they seemed to be less prominent again in the third season.

So will we get the different versions?

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

^Read the track listings for yourself, as posed earlier in this thread or all in one place here. They list the different versions of the main title that are included in the set. In addition to the pilot versions, there's the "electric violin version" on Season 1, Disc 2, the Steiner-arranged "cello version" on S1D3, the 2006 re-recording of the cello version on S1D5, the "soprano version" on S2D1, an "enhanced stereo" version of same on S2D2, the 2006 soprano version on S2D5, the third-season stereo version conducted by Wilbur Hatch on S3D1, the mono version of same on S3D3, and the 2006 version of same on S3D5. Plus the corresponding versions of the end title on the same discs.

As they've said, this set contains every single note of music written and recorded for TOS, including alternate versions -- save only "I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen" and the J. Peter Robinson substitute cues for "Goodnight, Sweetheart" from that '80s syndication release of "City on the Edge" that couldn't get the rights to the song.

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

Listening to those sample tracks again, each one instantly takes you to a familiar moment and feeling, Yeah, being a TOS fan they can call me biased, but no subsequent Trek series has ever had such powerful and evocative music. So much of it is simply fantastic. And it's never sounded so rich and substantial as now---I hear things I never knew were there before.

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

I think the music in the first few episodes of TNG is in a very TOS-like style -- especially, of course, Fred Steiner's score to "Code of Honor," which is as gorgeous as anything he did for TOS. And there were some bits of brilliance later on in the other series, particular in Ron Jones's TNG scores and to some extent in Enterprise, by which point the strictures were relaxing and the music was able to get more expressive again.

But yeah -- taking each series in the aggregate, TOS unquestionably had the lushest, most powerful music overall.
