E.T. The Isolated Extra Terrestrial


Recommended Posts

Last week I recieved the 4 disc Laserdisc of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial containing the complete isolated score.

Despite no less then 3 CD releases of this score, there is still music that has not been released. And since the isolated score has fo far been available to most people (including myself) in lossy audio. I took it upon myself to record the isolated score track using my trust old Philips Audio Compact Disc Recorder (CDR 760)

This records in CD quality (16 bit 44.1 Khz, uncompressed digital)

The isolated score on the laserdisc set was presented in the same resolution, except that it is analog instead of digital.

The tracklist below represents the score as it is used in the film.

Thanks to him we have had some solid releases! The 20th Anniversary Edition of Close Encounters is superb.

He was right to be annoyed about it at the time because the expanded versions of E.T. from many. many years back replaced alternates with film versions, yet retained the alternate original version of

At long last, the LaserDisc recording is about to become obsolete aside from film edits. I'll no longer have a version in my collection labeled "Stefan".

I guess here is as good a place as any to post this:

Over The Moon - 2:06 - OST 07

Note 1: "E.T. Is Alive" on the 2002 release (track 19) is edited down, which is why you must use the 1996 or OST track (unless you want to edit the missing piece into the 2002 track)

Note 2: "Adventures On Earth" on the OST contains the wrong takes for the "Chase (11m3 The Bike Chase)" and "Saying Goodbye (11m4/12m1 The Departure)" sections.

Now I am left wondering to what extent the version I just got is complete and/or has got doubled music.

There seems to be more alternates and less concert versions than on the above list.

And it's got "Abandoned and Pursued (Alt.)" but not a track named "Abandoned and Pursued". :blink:

There's plenty of fan-made boots with duplicated music cause they didn't know better.

Make your own complete release by combining the OST, 1996 CD, 2002 CD, and steef's isolated score using the guide I posted.

Does the full score not fit on one CD? Or is it just another case of Williams being an ass and intentionally leaving certain cues off?

Well, Williams only arranged the original OST, which contained 5 concert arrangements and 5 film cues

The 1996 and 2002 releases were handled by Bouzerou, not Williams. With the 1996 version he left out a few cues and included the original versions of any cue that had a later insert written.

With the 2002 release, he included the main score cues he had forgotten (Bait For ET and Meeting ET) and mixed in the inserts for two of the cues (Searching For ET and End Credits) while still leaving out the inserts for 2 others (ET Is Dying and Saying Goodbye)

The Main Titles is a mystery, with no sheet music we don't really know what the deal is and why it's so similar to "Elliot Explores The Cornfield". They could both be different edits of the same single recording.

Also perhaps Elliot's First Kiss wasn't included because they didn't want to get the rights to The Quiet Man music.

Why they didn't include the inserts for ET Is Dying and Saying Goodbye I don't know. Lazyness?

Jason, weren't there two alternate inserts in the finale track?

No, there's only the one insert. All other differences on the OST version or Chase and Saying Goodbye are just due to them being the wrong takes selected.

The one I got came from a source that should be well-known to you... :rolleyes:

Anyway, I don't have quite enough time or good enough editing skills to do this myself.

Nor am I familiar enough with the music. If I can't find a good edition for me to use, I'll just stick to the OST on this one.

It's news to me that the 1996/2002 versions are different from each other as well as being different from the film version (other than the missing Insert, of course).

What do you think the differences are?

Any one know if the "correct" version of Saying Goodbye has been released on any of the CD releases, or all they all alternates?

I thought the OST had the version with the insert, and 96/02 were the same, with the original version sans insert. I ended up editing the insert bit into the 02 version I think.

That is correct

Hmmm...just lined up the 1996 and 2002 version of Escape/Chase/Saying Goodbye

They don't match.

The 2002 version is 4 seconds shorter.

Yes; As I mentioned in my post, in the 1996 version "Chase" ends cleanly with "Saying Goodbye" starting after brief silence; On the 2002 release they are overlapped like in the film.

There are two sections that are different though, I can't remember what the other one is - but maybe it's only a slight difference and hence a different take then.

There are more than 2 sections different, but they are due to wrong takes being used on the OST, not due to additional written and recorded inserts.

Saying Goodbye:

1996 and 2002 seem the same

OST is very close to Film Version but has a horn blast when E.T. says "I'll be right here" (which is not in film version) . Is it different mixing of the same take?

The isolated score take = the 1996/2002 take just with the Insert added.

The OST is the only alternate version here, people - and its only alternate because of different takes being used.
