Film Score Monthly, producers of the expanded Star Trek II and III soundtrack albums, have recently announced they are working on a big box set of Ron Jones music from Star Trek: The Next Generation. TrekMovie has now got some more excusive details on this exciting upcoming set.
14 CD Ron Jones Box Set Coming In September
Film Score Monthly, producers of the expanded Star Trek II and III soundtrack albums, have announced on their website what will be the largest-ever collection of Star Trek music: a 14CD box set of Ron Jones’s fan-favorite scores to the first four seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation. FSM are working closely with Jones to make this the ultimate collection for fans of his work on TNG.
The 14 discs will contain 40 complete episode scores including episodes such as "Where No One Has Gone Before," "Datalore," "Heart of Glory," "Skin of Evil," "A Matter of Honor," "Q Who," "Who Watches the Watchers," "The Defector," "The High Ground," "The Offspring," "Brothers," "Final Mission" and many more. There will also be "bonus tracks" not included on the GNP/Crescendo CD of "The Best of Both Worlds" (GNP/Crescendo otherwise has exclusive rights to that soundtrack), a disc of alternates and outtakes, and Jones’s two computer game scores, "Starfleet Academy" and "Starfleet Command." A 60-page booklet will contain an introductory essay and track listings (illustrated with TNG stills and artwork), and the entire collection comes in a sturdy gold slipcase.
The box set will be a limited edition of 5,000 units retailing for $149.95. It is expected in early September 2010. FSM is not yet accepting orders but invite those interested to join the mailing list of their retail partner, Screen Archives to be notified when the box set is available: www.screenarchives.com/joinlist.
