    I’d rather have more UW than that song, but I am speaking from the perspective of the persnickety album producer that Williams is. If he put that song on the album, he wanted it there. I don’t think he’d have sacrificed it for more action material he’d surely find redundant when the original UW has a strong internal narrative of its own that stands without the rest of the material.

    - The OST album had to be finalized before they had actually finished recording the score (which is why the climax of the score isn't on the album - it hadn't been recorded yet)
     
    - Therefore, a copy of the final recording session day's cues never went to Sony Music like the main scoring session cues had.  Why would they, the album work was done.
     
    - The 90s bootlegs missing the same set of cues that weren't available for the OST album, therefore makes perfect sense; Dubs of those cues only went from the recording stage right to the team mixing the final film, and that's it.  No copies sent to Sony Music, just less copies of these cues out there in the world in general.
     
    - 20 years later, LLL gets a license from Sony Pictures and Sony Music to expand the score, and Didier is hired to produce it.  He's a Sony Music guy.  He has his team put together an album primarily sourced from the tape at Sony Music, which as indicated is missing the cues from that final recording day.  For whatever reason, the only thing he gets from Sony Pictures is the film's music stem.  Maybe the music stem was already digitized so didn't cost anything while the unedited session recordings would have required someone to pay for a transfer, maybe he didn't ask the right person, maybe he just didn't care or know enough about how things work, I have no clue.  I'd speculate he started the project assuming the primary source had the whole score, only realized later that it didn't, and only at that point got the music stem, which was good enough for him.  But who knows - we'll never have any more insight into his process than what he shared here.
     
    - Meanwhile, another leak turns up coincidentally around the same time, that has a good take of most cues from the score, including those ones from that final day.  This means it came from a source unrelated to Sony Music; could be a source at Sony Pictures {maybe they've begun digitizing every tape in their vaults on their own dime?}, could be a source from the recording stage {maybe someone involved in the recording in 1991 kept a backup copy that he recently digitized and shared with a friend?}, who knows.  This new leak was sent to LLL before the album was released.  Whether LLL decided not to use it, or they were on board with using it but Didier decided not to use it, is unknown.  Maybe someone decided not to use it because it was only available in 320kbps mp3s and therefore had compression artifacts.  Maybe Didier didn't want to pay his team to open up the master and redo a bunch of tracks.  Maybe he has a personal issue with using elements sourced from fans.  Maybe Sony Music has an issue with elements sourced from fans.  I have no idea why the leak wasn't used, but any one of those is a good enough reason if you ask me.  The proper thing to have done when the main source turned out to not have every cue would have been to get the missing cues from the proper source at Sony Pictures (which would have negated the need for the leak entirely), even if it meant delaying the album, but that decision was not made at the time.  So we got what we got.
     
    - Another 10 years later.  Mike Matessino rebuilds and remasters the OST album for Mondo.  Since the 2011 transfers of that Sony Music tape sound great, are in high res, and contain everything that was on the OST album, there'd be no need to use anything else.  So the Mondo album existing gives no insight into whether work on a proper expansion is already in the works, or will be in the works eventually.  It's just a separate thing.  But let's all hope a proper expansion done by a competent producer will happen, and happen soon!

    I feel the idea that LLL is working on a super-deluxe package with all the songs and unused stuff is a scenario dreamt up by JWFan. As soon as we discover that *something* exists connected with the score or JW's contribution, it's added to the 'dream' wish list, and becomes less and less likely to happen.
     
    On a completely unrelated note, I will start demanding that Sony ransacks its vaults for better Ghostbusters 2 elements in a few years     
     
    (I'm half joking...  )

    I think we're all just worried that Mike is worried about something, because that's not reassuring (and Mike has always struck me as a very calm, cool, collected guy).

    If LLL can't do it because the missing material only survives in bootleg form (again, this is theoretical only), there's nothing you can do about that, and no amount of whining about Sony failing to archive stuff is going to help...

    Or Sony could just go along with it and properly archive their stuff?

    It's just disconcerting that Mike is worried in relation to a Hook expansion.
     
    What if Sony are refusing to licence the score to LLL? Is the release assembled but stuck in approvals, and they're struggling to get vocalists to sign off on the songs? Are elements still missing and Mike's worried about how to assemble everything?
