Star Trek: FC complete score is out!

Away we go...

http://store.gnpcrescendo.com/new/pr...roducts_id=227

April 2nd 2012 —GNP Crescendo Records, longtime home of new and classic Star Trek soundtracks, releases a long-sought limited-edition collector’s CD of Star Trek: First Contact (1996) featuring the complete score by Jerry Goldsmith (with additional music by Joel Goldsmith), newly remastered by recording engineer Bruce Botnick. Star Trek: First Contact (1996) was the most popular feature film starring the crew of Star Trek: The Next Generation. When the Borg travel through time into Earth’s past, Picard and his crew must prevent them from altering a pivotal moment in human history—mankind’s “first contact” with an alien race (the peaceful Vulcans).

First Contact marked the much-anticipated return of beloved composer Jerry Goldsmith to the franchise. Goldsmith’s march from Star Trek: The Motion Picture (reused as the main title theme for The Next Generation) is instantly identifiable, and Goldsmith’s extraordinary gift for melody, thrilling orchestration and musical storytelling has made him the signature composer for Gene Roddenberry’s vision.

For First Contact, schedule constraints led Goldsmith to recruit another composer to write additional music—his son Joel. The resulting score by both men combines exciting themes from Goldsmith’s previous efforts with vital new material, including a “first contact” theme (nobly sounded by French horn) and an ominous motive for the Borg.

GNP Crescendo released the original soundtrack album to Star Trek: First Contact in 1996, featuring 45 minutes of score highlights. Since then, fans have clamored for both Goldsmiths’ complete work—particularly the thrilling “Flight of the Phoenix.” This expanded release (nearly 80 minutes) presents exactly that—including three alternate tracks—in sterling sound quality, mastered by Jerry Goldsmith’s longtime recording engineer, Bruce Botnick.

The accompanying 16-page booklet includes informative notes by Jeff Bond and John Takis and is lavishly illustrated with film stills. Star Trek: First Contact—Complete Motion Picture Score (GNPD 8079) is available solely as a physical CD from GNP Crescendo Records

The original album was one of those lame 'enhanced' CDs as I recall where there was a bunch of CD-ROM content that no one ever cared about. I remember even as a teenager buying that CD I wished there was more music on it instead of a bunch of videos that would muck up my computer when I put the disc in the drive.

Full soundtracks simply aren't as commercially viable. They work better as limited edition collectors' editions for the niche nostalgia market. It took the general soundtrack market a loooong time to shift from soundtracks on CDs having to be of similar lengths as their vinyl LP counterparts.

It wasn't just the specter of the LP; the bigger problem was the large reuse fees that the musicians unions negotiated for recordings.

In 2002 the unions renegotiated, cutting their fees in half for soundtrack releases, in exchange for credits for the musicians in the recording. This made longer soundtracks more affordable for record labels (pay the same price and get double the music).

Sure, but it's still rare for regularly-released first-time CDs to be the entire soundtrack. I can't think of any.

Ok, so by my count the only 'full' releases that are not done yet are Star Trek V, Generations, Insurection and Nemesis.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo soundtrack is twice as long as the entire score for the movie. :P

La La Land already released an expanded score for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. It quickly went out of print, though.

And although the slightly expanded Star Trek--The Motion Picture score that Columbia put out more than ten years ago is nice, there's still a lot of (great) material from that score waiting to be released.

I am hoping they Columbia does release a more expanded version of TMP. I really want some of the early tracks that were redone by Goldsmith like 'The Enterprise'.

I hope the Crescendo mix is better than the original release. I love this soundtrack, but the original mix was poor.
