existing releases that didn't transfer the tapes at the correct speed and used the wrong takes throughout. :sarcasm:

And put only two thirds of the material on there, yanking random bits onto a separate disc, shitting all over how it was all supposed to flow and which cues were written to be joined and flow as one, keeping mindbogglingly bad OST edits...

It was obviously the best that could be done.

You don't think the problem was an incompetent producer who clearly didn't know or care that much about what he was doing? I am completely unfamiliar with the quality of this box set, but it sounds like it makes the 2012 Hook expansion look extraordinary.

The Concord box definitely wasn't the best that could be done with those scores.

 

It was a product of its time, when JW was uncomfortable with adding additional music to his albums, and also the person doing the tape transfers apparently not knowing what they were doing. (pitch problems)

 

Surely in practical terms, there's nothing that makes them more difficult to expand than any other scores during the 80s. But it's Indy, which brings all sorts of complicated baggage and pretentiousness.

For two or three minutes of unreleased music and - hopefully - a few corrections? I mean, seriously.

A complete Indiana Jones box set would definitely be more than just a bottlecap. It would still have more unreleased music than... an expanded U.S. Marshals.

The Indy boxset has a really messed up tracklist in my opinion, but I’m not familiar with the LLL Hook expansion: what exactly is missing/wrong in it?

Missing score, film stem is sometimes used instead of the tapes, missing OST material, unchronological etc.

The La La Land Records expansion was just a warm up. We haven't seen nothing yet  ! :D

They included Banning back home and all the stupid songs.

 

Funny thing is, I consider Banning Back Home a (not so) guilty pleasure of mine. I find its Grusin-esque sound cringeworthy, but that track is always a fun listen, at least for me, and I think it really conveys the cookie cutter quality of Peter’s boring, corporate, yuppie lifestyle.

Wow. Isn’t it weird for a LLL release? I mean, quality-wise.

It's elevator music.

 

No, it's more like Weather Channel local forecast music. For the record, however, it does underscore an elevator scene. It's JW going back to his roots, imitating a temp track or not. You can hear the evolution of JW music in the Hook score!

I've always preferred the film version for "Banning Back Home" compared to the OST.  The OST just seemed a little lifeless.


I don't know if a proper MM re-issue for Hook will happen or not. I'm betting not.
