Nothing like an information-loaded reply!

All kidding aside, there's a soft, almost melanholy cue--very brief--in Day of the Dove as the entity is seen leaving the Enterprise (and before the usual season 3 executive producer credits closing begins). I'm wondering if that was part of a larger piece unused on the series?

News of this release prompted me to listen to the classic TOS scores from GNP.

I have to say, I'm really enjoying The Cage score a lot more than I did when I first had the CD some years back.

I guess I'm on a kick ...

Good, then you'll immediately realize how much better sounding our release is. Seriously, it's night and day.

Annoying isn't it? I have almost completely finished putting away the money for this, (I'll have it all on November 1), and that money is already burning a hole in my wallet.

Neil, can I assume this to mean that the old Cage/Where No Man Has Gone Before CD is a re-recording the same as everybody claims The Empath soundtrack is?

Those sure fooled me all these years. They sound like the real thing.

The GNP releases weren't re-recordings. Neil is suggesting they were just poorly mastered compared to these new releases (which I don't find hard to believe).

Correct. The GNP was the real deal and probably the best they had at the time. The increase in quality is not subtle with our new release though.

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

I'm looking at the liner notes on the GNP pilot album which was produced by Neil Norman (isn't that you, Indysolo?), and they say:
The master tapes for this album are from the best sources available. They have endured fire and flood at Paramount and though they do betray their age, they are still in mint condition. For many years their whereabouts were cloaked in an aura of mystery. In my adventures as a Science Fiction archaeologist, my colleagues and I were finally able to unearth them! No expense has been spared to bring them to you in "state of the art" digital form.

Occasionally you may encounter some hiss or distortion, due to the condition of the original tapes. We have eliminated as many imperfections as possible without impairing the performances.
(Of course, since this was originally a vinyl LP release, "digital form" would refer to the processing/mixing rather than the final playback medium.)

And I do recall the audio quality being about what these notes describe -- the tapes did "show their age."

So the question is, have better, more intact masters for the pilot scores been found since 1985, or is it simply that modern restoration/remastering techniques enabled a much better cleanup of the same masters?

Better tapes have been found.

I'm not Neil Norman, either. I'm Neil S. Bulk.

I'm also not Jackson Roykirk.

Oh, I didn't ask you because I assumed you were Neil Norman. I asked you because you're the guy who worked on this CD set.

And I know for a fact you're not Jackson Roykirk.

I am.

Christopher thought I was Neil Norman. It's probably a simple mistake to make. How many Neil's are there involved with TOS music releases?

Cool. (Gives me hope that maybe those Filmation tapes might still be out there.)

Okay. Sorry for the mixup.

But are you Spartacus?
