    Okay, that's what I thought -- they have part of it, but not the most famous part with the "siren song."

    Yes, thanks for making me listen to that album again. I'm sure it was the best they had at the time, but it really is unlistenable. Our set rights a lot of wrongs.

    ^I look forward to it!

    At the time, of course, the GNP album was a treasure, the first release of actual, original music cues from TOS, so we tolerated the poor quality and the timing error and such. Although the omission of the entire climactic portion of "Where No Man" always bugged me. I'm very glad we're getting a complete, clean version at last -- of that and everything else, which still amazes me. Has there ever before been a soundtrack set of the entire musical score from a television series?

    No, there hasn't.

    Are you going to be at the screening?

    So which will hit the shelves first, this or Vol 4. of Battlestar Galactica?

    I never thought the GNP albums were that bad. Now I have REALLY high hopes for this set.

    In California? No, I live way too far away for that to be practical, and I'm too busy trying to make my deadline on the Trek novel I'm writing.

    Well, the list matches perfectly (for a single sided disc with equivilent tracks), but of course listening tells a different story.

    There are still 35 tracks total, but somewhere around "Monster Illusion" (I suspect) things go amok. It appears something not accounted for is simply plopped into the order, and the following tracks are shifted forward. What is listed as "Kibitzers" is unquestionably "Monster Fight" in actuality. Strangely enough, somewhere down the line things fall back into place for the finishing of Where No Man Has Gone Before. I'm not certain where precisely, though it's likely that the 3 second "Hit the Button" track is totally absent. I do know "Instant Paradise" and the remaining tracks are perfectly placed. If anything the CD listed things exactly the same way as the LP when it should not have.

    It has always driven me crazy, but I look forward to it all being where it belongs, AND having that delicious "Siren Song" music, notably absent to me for the 25 or so years since I got this CD. :D

    (Oh, and everything else. ;) )

    ^Weird. Makes me grateful for my old-fashioned LPs.

    Quite an interesting set of revelations with these scores alone.

    I look forward to seeing the rest of the track listings, and in some cases, comparing them to the contents of the GNP CDs.

    Not to mention the library cues that were never used or heard.

    This is driving me nuts. Why all the speculation about what's not on this set, when we've said repeatedly that if it was recorded for the series, it's here. Do you really think we left off a cue as prominent as that even though it's brief?

    You are right of course, IndySolo.

    I think we'd all be better served by saving our questions for after when the set is released.

    Basill wasn't talking about your set there. We were comparing notes about the LP and CD versions of the '85 GNP release, and he was saying that their CD version may have left off that track as part of its mixups.

    Yes. In a word... catharsis. I was just talking about what drove me crazy about the old stuff in pure anticipation for your magnificent set, which I am totally aware (as you have repeatedly stated ;) ) has it all and leaves the old stuff in the dust. :D

    The release order is neither production nor broadcast order. Are the scores sorted by composer?

    We've got our first entirely unreleased score here; as far as I know, nothing from "The Man Trap" has been released before. Previously unreleased cues from "The Naked Time" include:

    Out of Glove
    Breaking Planet/Sweaty Palm/Itchy Hand
    Pulled Down/It Spreads
    Joe Goes
    Up the Rebels

    The track here called "D'Artagnan-san" was previously released under the title "D'Artagnan." Some of the cues were combined differently on the GNP album; "D'Artagnan" and "Banana Farm" were combined, "Hot Skin" (mislabeled "Hot Sun") was on the same track as "Off the Cloud," and "Time Reverse/Future Risk" were separate from the end title cue. Also the trailer music was included at the start of the program; putting it at the end is probably more correct, since it was the preview for the following week's episode. (I wonder if there are any other trailers that had music composed specifically for them. Oh, wait, it says right there that there's a "Man Trap" trailer included!)

    It'll be nice to have the full "Naked Time" score at last. It always disappointed me that the GNP release cut off after "Brass Monkeys" and didn't do the whole score for the teaser. And "Up the Rebels" must be the big statement of Kevin Riley's theme as he wandered the corridors, another notable omission.

    Terrific!

    So is what's listed on the GNP The Naked Time as Brass Monkeys really the trailer to Mudd's Women? And what is really Brass Monkeys?

    No, it really is "Brass Monkeys" -- it's just that the trailer comes before it on the list. The trailer is track 9, "Brass Monkeys" is track 10, etc.

    "Small Planet Visit/The Changeling M10/M11" should be a joy, if that's the cue played during the Nancy illusion tempting Green into following her scene. Lovely mix of seduction and dramatic music.
