Jerry Goldsmith's Star Trek The Motion Picture - 2012 La La Land 3CD (and now: 2LP)


Recommended Posts

FIRST La-La Land and Creature Features released a joint press release:




Star Trek: The Motion Picture (3-CD Set)

Music by Jerry Goldsmith

LLLCD 1207

Limited Edition of 10000 Units

La-La Land Records, Sony Music and Paramount Pictures boldly go where no soundtrack reissue has gone before with this deluxe 3-CD set of 1979‘s Star Trek: The Motion Picture, composed and conducted by Jerry Goldsmith.

The first big screen voyage of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock was a high budget and ambitious undertaking that introduced Goldsmith’s famous and enduring Star Trek march (later used as the main theme for Star Trek: The Next Generation) as the cornerstone of an epic science fiction musical odyssey. Like the film’s refit starship Enterprise, La-La Land’s lavish presentation presents the score anew: fully restored, remixed and mastered from the first generation multi-track masters by Bruce Botnick, the original album co-producer and Goldsmith’s long time scoring engineer.

“To put together the complete score the decision was to go back to the original Analogue 16-track 2-inch 30 i.p.s. masters,” Botnick explains. “John Davis at Precision Audiosonics baked each of the 37 rolls in a convection oven at 110º for eight hours so that they were playable, then rolled out a marvelous 3M 56 IsoLoop 16-track machine with brand new heads. The tapes were resolved at 60Hz to maintain the original orchestral pitch and sync. The Analogue-to-Digital transfer was done from the 16-track through the latest Black Lion A/D convertors and recorded to Pro Tools X at 192kHz 24-bit.”

This 3-CD set presents the score for the 1979 theatrical release (filling disc 1 and part of disc 2) and also premieres the legendary early “rejected” cues that Goldsmith recorded prior to composing his famous main theme. The 1979 album program (much of which is performed and edited differently as compared to the film) completes disc 2, with disc 3 offering additional alternates (including those heard on the previous Sony expanded release) along with a wealth of bonus material. Among the highlights are a collection of early takes of the “Main Title” (including extensive stage chatter), isolated segments featuring Craig Huxley’s famous “blaster beam” and assorted synthesizer excerpts, the domestic CD debut of Bob James’ disco cover version of Goldsmith’s theme and Shaun Cassidy’s vocal version of the love theme, “A Star Beyond Time.”

Reissue co-producer Mike Matessino (who handled restoration and editorial efforts) collaborates with Jeff Bond on the thoroughly researched album notes which feature interview excerpts by Goldsmith, Botnick and performers Huxley and David Newman. The clamshell packaging and 40-page full color booklet are designed by Jim Titus.

“It has been an honor to be able to work with the original recordings of this music and to document its production,” Matessino says. “This is one of the greatest scores of all time and everyone involved took the responsibility very seriously and happily devoted months to see it come together. The clarity and quality we now have is truly amazing. Thanks to the efforts of La-La Land Records, Sony Music and Paramount Pictures, the end product is an embarrassment of riches and a ‘must-have’ for every film music and Star Trek collection.”

I'm not even a huge Star Trek fan, honestly, but what I know of this score, and from everything I have currently heard from it from the current releases, I am definitely getting this. Awesome that it is practically unlimited with 10,000 units, so we don't even need to rush to get this one. I however do wonder what the price of this one will be?

This is the kind of set each JW score should get.

and look at the alternates llisted in the tracklist:

Total Logic (Alternate)?

Goodbye Klingons (Alternate)?

perhaps we might get more of JG's unused theme....perhaps a main title arrangement of it? (I doubt it)

BTW I went on LLL's site and selected the TNG set to see how much total shipping would be since it's the same price as this set. $39.48 would be the total, that's including shipping. That is if you ordered directly from La-La Land.

No way, i got dibs on Derp!

Are you an only child or did you just eat too much paint? You can't call dibs on something after someone has already claimed ownership. It doesn't work that way.

I will gladly pay 40 bucks for this score.

There are a handful of scores from the 70's that transcend ordinary film music. Most of those were scored by a man God named John or a man God named Jerry.

After Jerry went to Heaven God even offered him his own chair....because of The Enterprise!
