    I don't know about everyone else here, but I'm very excited about this set. They're setting up a mailing list to judge consumer interest, so everyone who is interested should write in.

    Here's the press release I just got on email.


    As I said in the Gen Trek thread -- this is a soundtrack dream come true!

    Here's the video promo, written, directed and cut by Brad Hansen, the same guy who cut "The Lion King Rises" and "Wall-E-theus:

    Let me emphasize this point.

    EVERY

    PIECE

    OF

    MUSIC

    RECORDED

    FOR

    THE

    SHOW


    I'm honestly surprised that GNP is allowing La-La Land to release music that were previously under their banner, especially after they refused to allow the complete score to "The Best of Both Worlds" to be featured on the Ron Jones Project.

    I can't think of an exclamation, emoticon, or meme sufficient to convey how thrilled I am by this. I think it kind of goes without saying. This is the Holy Grail for Trek music fans. This is what I've been wanting for decades. Every single cue from TOS, plus unused cues we've never heard before??? Incredible! And if it has liner notes as good as the previous box sets, so much the better.

    The only thing that would make this better is if they had the complete score to the animated series as well.

    I would love this but I'll bet it will be priced way out of my range. :(

    It sounds like it's about the same size as the Ron Jones set, so the price ought to be comparable, though there could be some difference due to demand or the amount of work that had to go into the restoration or whatever.

    I'm definitely getting this. By the way, how much was that Ron Jones set? Just trying to draw a comparison pricewise.

    With tax, a bit over $160.

    Cool. I would be ok with that for all of the music from all 3 seasons.

    If this set is as advertised, I will crack open the IRA for it.

    The only quibble I have so far is about that guy saying that no 3rd season music has been released, which is not correct. I believe we have from GNP/Cresendo some "Is There In Truth..." music and a few cuts from "The Paradise Syndrome". And wasn't there some from "The Empath" done too? But those may have been re-orchestrations. The mind grows dim.

    Based on those works, which I lapped up like a thirsty dog 20-25 years ago, we are still missing original work from "Who Mourns for Adonais", "Elaan of Troyius", "Spock's Brain", "And The Children...", "Plato's Stepchildren", "Tholian Web", and a few more short cues, not the least of which would be from "City".

    Please, make this happen, and make it happen right!

    There has been some music that I've wanted. I wanted and have Doomsday Machine. I've wanted the music from Who Mourns for Adonais and Corbomite Manuever.

    The tracks from "Corbomite Maneuver" were previously released, and in fact are now on iTunes. Enjoy.

    I believe only 12 episodes have had near complete or selected cues released from the original television scores and are non-reorchestrations. These are the following:

    SEASON 1
    1. THE CAGE

    2. WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE

    3. THE CORBOMITE MANUEVER

    4. THE NAKED TIME

    5. BALANCE OF TERROR

    6. WHAT ARE LITTLE GIRLS MADE OF?

    7. THE CONSCIENCE OF THE KING

    8. SHORE LEAVE



    SEASON 2
    9. AMOK TIME

    10. THE DOOMSDAY MACHINE

    11. THE TROUBLE WITH TRIBBLES

    I am ecstatic to the nth degree about this comprehensive release. Interesting that the GNP liner notes mentioned a fire or flood which damaged "The Cage" and "WNMHGB" recordings, which resulted in the poor quality (hisses, pops, etc) in that release. Evidently, all these scores were well preserved in a vault with all the others.

    I said that, and it's true. We've had re-recordings of third season music, but never the original recordings. With this set, all of the third season music makes it's debut, including music written but never used!
