yeah but overall it sounds a lot worse

 

How so? You can hear the horn triplets at 4:08 much better than the OST recording, the trumpet repeated notes starting at 4:33, etc.

So Scream Factory have announced a Blu-ray remaster of the original version of this film, with the correct colour timing (not the revisionist desaturated version Badham created in 1991, and is the only available version of the film ever since).
 

What are the odds of an isolated score track that might feature the unreleased source music? Complete breakdown of bonus features still TBA... releasing November this year.

What reason does anyone have to believe this blu ray would get an isolated score feature?  That's a pretty rare feature

Hmmm... how well might the JW penned waltz, that wasn’t on the expansion, be heard in such a feature?

 

Well, in the film it's a 20 second segment in degraded quality, coming from a gramophone. Even if there is an iso score, don't hold your breath.

What reason did anyone have to expect this film would be released with its original colour timing, after years of Universal denying such requests and the director himself refusing anything except his desaturated version, claiming it was his "true vision" for the film?

 

Yet here we are.
