Now available! Star Trek: First Contact Complete Motion Picture Score

cover.jpgApril 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.

Is GNP Crescendo new to the expansion game? If I remember correctly they released the Wrath of Khan OST, but I'm not familiar with any expansions they've done.

And hi Mark!

Yea I don't think they've ever done an expansion before!

My guess is this would have been an FSM title had Lukas continued the label

It should be 2-CDs, several alternates are missing. I rarely care about alternates just as long as the main score is 100% account for i don't care about a few missing alternates.

So with GNP doing First Contact they'll most likely do Insurrection.

I'm shocked to see GNP back in business as a label. And releasing an EXPANSION ?!?

I think the sky is about to fall ... :)

I think most are surprised that GNP released this. I think most assumed GNP was done as a label. Either way this was definitely an instant purchase!

By the way with out any alternates the complete score would fit onto 1-CD. I also don't like how GNP did the cover for this release. To me personally it really does look like a boot. I wish the cover was more in line with the other Trek releases.

SAE has some of the older GNP Trek releases so I'd think it would be on there eventually.

I'm sure it will be. I wish we knew how limited it was.

If I had to guess... "Limited to the number they can sell."

According to someone at FSM this is limited to 10.000 copies, so it will be around for a while.

Good, i can get it next month or so.

Well, it's very cool they fit the complete score on 1 c.d. I don't care about the alternates on this specific score (not the same case with STTMP)

Yes in this case the alternates are not as crucial as having the actual complete score in my opinion. And there are 3 of the most significant ones on the release anyway.
