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?
I give up.

Neil
Sorry, but I didn't catch everything in the thread. The question has already been answered.

^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.
Were the mono versions really different recordings/mixes, or were they just the stereo version downmixed for transmission? I would have expected the latter...

I would think TV audio practices were still at a point where you'd have separate mono and stereo mixes for things recorded in stereo; same performance, different mix.

Season two's orchestra was recorded in mono with a separate overlay for vocal and woodwinds. This allowed us to remix it. Season three's main title was recorded to three track tape. We present remixes and mono versions of both to please purists and to present an alternate mix.

Very excellent! Shame the multitrack tape contents can't be released separately too...

That was awesome, thanks for linking.

Except for the part where they put up a picture of the very-much-alive Gerald Frield over the "Sol Kaplan 1919-1990" inscription.

Those are tough days. But what a great night you'll have.

I'm up to Specter of the Gun - We're Trapped/Shoot Out, Part 1. So by my count I've listened to 11:39:32 and have 5:43:48 left.

It's funny, some scores I've enjoyed way more than I thought I would (Tribbles, Metamorphosis) and some a little bit less (Return to Tomorrow).

I appreciate Amok Time even MORE. And Charlie X is THE Star Trek score.

Patience my friend, patience. I ordered mine last Tuesday and just got the shipping confirmation THIS MORNING. I don't even expect to see it until Friday at the earliest.

But, I DO sympathize.

I'm in an even worse predicament. I got my set Monday and have been waiting for iTunes to update its CDDB (I know IndySolo submitted all the correct info to them for this set) so I can import my discs and listen to them at work!
Any news on the CDDB update?

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

Well, I decided to pass some time by listening to the remainder of the CD I had in my bedroom player (Batman: TAS Vol. 2 Disc 1), and when I was done and opened my apartment door to check the mail, there was a nice cube-shaped box sitting there! And the set looks great. All the discs are intact, and only one popped loose from its frame. (Question: why do they keep CDs in those plastic frames that it's sometimes hard to remove them from, instead of putting them in sleeves like LPs? Although these frames seem better designed than the ones on the Ron Jones set from FSM.)

Haven't started to listen yet, but I read the overview booklet and skimmed the season booklets. The booklets look very good, but I do wish the ratio of text to images had been higher. I bet there's a ton of stuff Jeff Bond learned in his research that he couldn't fit in the notes. (Any chance of a Music of Star Trek revised and expanded edition?) Already learned some things from the booklets. For instance, confirmation that Wilbur Hatch's "Humoresque" library cue was the piece accompanying the clothing theft in "City on the Edge." Also, I hadn't realized that Ivan Ditmars was the pianist on so many episode scores.
