  1. Exactly. I can understand including the OST if there's available space for it that would otherwise go unused. Let's say a score is hypothetically 85 minutes, meaning they need two discs anyway, and there's 75 minutes of available room on disc 2. No harm in bundling in the OST then (Jaws being a perfect example, with the full score + source music 81 minutes long). But if they have to add an extra disc just to include the OST presentation (which means additional manufacturing + shipping costs), and said OST includes zero material not already contained on earlier discs, it doesn't make sense to me. Just put whatever exclusive material is on the OST at the end of disc 2.
  2. I still cringe reading about how first generation masters were literally cut back in the day. It's amazing we didn't have more situations like we did with the Star Wars sessions, where the 16-track first generation film takes ended up in the hands of a private owner, because they'd been separated from the rest of the session masters.
  3. That's definitely just a deconstructed/incomplete rendition of the Force Theme, fittingly.
  4. I've never understood the point of including OST presentations on expanded/complete releases, if said OST only comprised film score cues. Sure, it makes sense for OSTs like E.T. where much of the material was recorded specifically for the OST, but would I want any of the Harry Potter OSTs included in that expanded set? Or the A.I. OST on that expansion? Or the Jurassic Park or Lost World OSTs on those releases? Including the OST for the sake of including the OST doesn't make much sense to me, unless there was something substantially wrong with the OST in the first place (either availability or audio quality).
  5. He said it was 'so close he could taste it.' That was 5 years ago.

    Star Wars Disenchantment

    Has anyone ever been to the Cook Islands? I've been thinking about booking a holiday there but it seems the flights are pretty expensive. Are the beaches nice? Would the Maldives be better?
  8. I'm not familiar with the score. Is the OST important for some reason? Was it a complete re-recording and separate from the film sessions?
  9. No cues credited to Williams? Don't we know the latter half of Dice & Roll was Williams?

    The Official Varese Sarabande Thread

    Yes! It's going to be a 10 disc set, with 2 discs dedicated to percussion-only tracks.
  11. Superman needs 3 discs? That they put the source music for the 1st movie in the 2nd/3rd movie set implies otherwise; they wouldn't have made that sequencing choice if the first score had 3 discs of room.

    What are the sexiest soundtrack covers?

    I thought the thread title said SEXIST. Needless to say, I was slightly confused.
  13. Is there enough material for a 3CD Azkaban? I don't think they'd start with the third movie anyway. Seems a little strange in a series of 8 films. More likely the 3CD is PS by itself, if anything.
  14. A Potter trilogy set doesn't fit into this slate. Keeping in mind that Superman and Schindler's List are probably in that mix. Of course, I'm assuming a "title" means a single film. I don't think a trilogy of scores would be referred to as a single title.
