Track listing for the new Star Trek: TMP 3-CD Set

Many (myself included) consider Jerry Goldsmith’s score for Star Trek: The Motion Picture to be the best of the franchise, and one of the best scores of all time. It is also one of the more extensive scores and now (finally) fans will be able to get the whole thing in one set, including some unused music. The limited edition set goes on sale June 5th (1PM PST) at www.lalalandrecords.com (no pre-orders). See previous article for more on the release and the July 4th Hollywood launch event.

VIDEO: Behind the scenes transferring TMP score

Here is a video from the producer of the new CD Mike Matessino taken at Precision Audiosonics where Johnny Davis transfers the original 2" master role from Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Also in the video are co-producer Bruce Botnick (who worked with Jerry Goldsmith throughout his career) and assistant editor Neil Bulk. The music heard is the early (unused) version of "Leaving Drydock," which makes its debut on the new 3-CD set.

Mike tells TrekMovie he will be posting more videos from the making of this new exciting set, so stay tuned for updates.

Comments

1. Joseph Coatar - May 18, 2012

In the years before the bootleg I made my own synth mock-up of ‘inner workings’, I’ll always love this score

2. Rocket Scientist - May 18, 2012

Wow. Drooling.

3. CAPT KRUNCH - May 18, 2012

I have always loved that music,,,Jerry Goldsmith is a musical god…
the Klingon theme and the Enterprise flyover of V’Ger are so powerful and beautiful at the same time……

4. captain_neill - May 18, 2012

I am definitely picking this one up. :-)

5. spock - May 18, 2012

This is so mine!!!

6. OneBuckFilms - May 18, 2012

I like this. Shiny ….

7. sunfell - May 18, 2012

Waaaant!

Is there a longer verson of Giacchino’s score out there too? I want that, as well.

8. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - May 18, 2012

I for one will be getting this. I have the one that was released back in early 2000. So this will be exciting. Jerry Goldsmith created a masterpeice in this music. Hey. It should have it’s own concert’s all over the country.

9. Michael Hall - May 18, 2012

Not only am I getting this must-have item, but am probably heading to the 06/04 event as well. Too cool!

10. spock - May 18, 2012

Out of all the Trek soundtracks for all the films, this one had the greatest impact on music styles used on many of the other movies, and other series that were made in the modern era of Trek

11. Ensign RedShirt - May 18, 2012

Can’t. Wait.

Bring on the preorder!

12. OneBuckFilms - May 18, 2012

7 – Giacchino’s score was expanded as Star Trek: The Deluxe Edition, and is pretty much complete.

It was limited to 5,000 copies, but has some interestint issues (Missing choir and percussion overlays from many tracks, a couple of odd editing choices).

It is also difficult to find at a reasonable price.

13. BeatleJWOL - May 18, 2012

@7 There was a deluxe edition of the 2009 film’s score, yes, but it was limited. As I recall, too, there were some issues with it still not being complete; some tracks that featured the choir on film were missing those parts on the CD, or something like that. Film Score Monthly’s forum is a good place to go to research such things, as are the John Williams Fan Network forums.

14. Me - May 18, 2012

Are the Steiner tracks in there?

15. BeatleJWOL - May 18, 2012

JINX

16. drapera - May 18, 2012

DISC 1, Track 2 Main Title/Klingon Battle 7:01 – I would pay the price just for this, if it is indeed the original from the 1979 film.

It always seemed Jerry was “somewhat” appreciative of all the praise we fans (Trek fans, Jerry fans and Film Score fans…etc) placed on this score. We really do love it. Thanks Jerry.

17. OneBuckFilms - May 18, 2012

14 – Yes. Some of those cues were done by Max Steiner.

The TV Theme was composed, arranged and conducted by Alexander Courage.

18. drapera - May 18, 2012

…and Mr. Pascale,

Thanks for giving this news release all the special attention (track lists, video and such) it deserves. Kudos!

The Human Adventure Is Just Beginning.

19. kmart - May 18, 2012

17,
FRED Steiner, not Max. A few decades off there …

20. OneBuckFilms - May 18, 2012

19. Ooops ….

21. Robert Bernardo - May 18, 2012

That early, unused version of “Leaving Drydock” is quite a revelation. I look forward to hearing all of the unused tracks.

22. BiggestTOSfanever - May 18, 2012

@7
If you cannot get a hold of a copy of the deluxe edition, I noticed that you can listen to the tracks on youtube. Example of Track 23 “Endangered Species”
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B63l_VnV7FY
This is my favorite track.

23. That Neil Guy - May 18, 2012

I made a quick cover version of A Star Beyond Time as a tribute. Too bad I didn’t do it in time to make the album…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KD_QaOVmxg

24. Loran Alan Davis - May 18, 2012

So, the Fred Steiner cues are credited to Jerry Goldsmith?

25. Sebastian S. - May 18, 2012

I wish I could triple dip on this one. I already had the original soundtrack LP I’d bought as a kid back in ’80, and my wife got me the 2-disc SE CD 11 years ago for Christmas (which I play in my car all the time).

This is really my favorite of all the ST movie soundtracks. I’ll admit, TWoK and ST09 have more lively and ‘nautical’ scores. But I love how TMP’s music oscillates between regal fanfare (the opening tracks/the Enterprise theme) to eerie and alien (the discordant ‘blaster beams’ used for V’ger and ‘the cloud’).

A truly remarkable score. Jerry Goldsmith in top form. He and his son’s recent passings were terrible losses to the musical world.

I’d better knock it off, now; I’m talking myself into getting it…… ;-P

26. Caesar - May 18, 2012

Can’t wait to get this one. It’s probably my #3 favorite score ever, after Star Wars and Conan the Barbarian.

27. Paul - May 18, 2012

The following are some of the most amazing cues ever written for anything since the dawn of cinema:

The Meld/A Good Start
The Enterprise

As a child I was lucky enough to see this movie the way it was intended to be seen on the big screen back in 1979….to this day nothing has come close to the spectacle of seeing the Enterprise on the big screen with Goldsmiths score soaring along…I doubt anything ever will now sadly!

28. crazydaystrom - May 18, 2012

I used to have the TMP soundtrack on eight-track. (I’m soooo old. When I look in a mirror it’s like a “The Deadly Years” situation! jk ;-)) But I’m getting this. I’ll think of it as Ilia’s Theme and some other great Goldsmith compositions! That theme is my #1 favorite piece of Trek related music! Just beautiful!

#27-
Yeah Paul, we WERE lucky back in ’79.

29. Robert - May 18, 2012

My first real exposure to Star Trek came when my parents took my friends and me to see TMP in 1979 for my 9th birthday. I loved it then and still do today. Jerry Goldsmith’s brilliant score is one of the main reasons why. Anybody want to loan me the money to buy this new release? :)

30. Red Dead Ryan - May 18, 2012

I think I’ll have to get this. I have Jerry Goldsmith’s “The Final Frontier”, “First Contact” and “The Mummy” soundtracks. What a great composer he was. Ditto for his son, Joel, who unfortunately recently passed away.

Last night, I listened to Michael Giacchino’s “Ratatouille” soundtrack. Great, beautiful stuff! MG has to be considered the successor to Jerry Goldsmith.

31. Red Dead Ryan - May 18, 2012

BTW, “The Motion Picture” came out a year before I was born.

32. Bill Hiro - May 18, 2012

I have nerd tumescence from looking at that track list.

33. TrekMovieMadeMeWonder* - May 18, 2012

After 20 years I just might buy Star Trek merchandise again!

34. JKP - May 18, 2012

I am so ridiculously stoked for this. I remember thinking I’d hit score nirvana with the 20th anniversary TMP CD. This will be amazing. Can’t wait!!

I’ve always maintained that TMP is hands down the best Trek score (although I love Horner’s TWOK as well) and one of the top 5 scores of all time.

35. Sunfell - May 18, 2012

I was in USAF Basic Training when ST:TMP premiered. My TI was kind enough to call me down to the orderly room when a news segment about the film’s premiere came on TV. When I got to my tech school in Biloxi, the first thing I did when I got permission to go off base was to see that movie. What a ride…

36. Sunfell - May 18, 2012

Oh, and thanks, #22- that was lovely. I am going to have to watch that movie again…

37. Bob Tompkins - May 18, 2012

I’s always read that Jerry Goldsmith and Gene Roddenberry had agreed that the early takes were lacking cohesion and fell flat without that central theme; from what I hear here that sounds they were spot- on to go back to the drawing board.
I heard the eary vrtsion of The Enterprise somewhere and found it to be completely uninspiring when compared to the final version.

38. Jim Nightshade - May 19, 2012

hey anthony i saw a couple of trek related stories on yahoo–2 trekkies suing ilinois over their car being searched n he used a trek video he made….and some engineer says a real enterprise could be built within 20 years st cost of one billion`…maybe facebook owners could pay foir it with their zillions

39. Jim Nightshade - May 19, 2012

yes bob i think it was robert wise and goldsmith not gene rodd….his original was very nautical but not exciting enuf n when goldsmith came back wise said something like why didnt you do that music the 1st time…course goldsmith got an emmy for his main title voyager theme.well deserved too…

40. Kiko - May 19, 2012

I always thought that the soundtrack for Star Trek The Motion Picture was a full digital recording, tracked to digital and mixed-down to digital. Now I discover it was recorded to analog and was only mixed to digital. This means this release is going to sound magnificient as early digital recorders sounded dreadful.

41. Adam Clark - May 19, 2012

Looking at the scan of the booklet, I’m glad that it will have track-by-track liner notes.

That’s precisely what should’ve been in the booklet for First Contact.

42. Holger - May 19, 2012

Thanks for the in-depth reports (also the previous entry)! Very good.

43. Soonerdew - May 19, 2012

Forty bucks for this set is a steal. Looking forward to it.

44. Elias Javalis - May 19, 2012

For me, Star Trek V score is more effective and mature..Dont get me wrong, TMP is a classic, and introduces the enterprise fanfare for the first time in a glorious way!!

A buy for me, because its Star trek and Goldsmith!!!

45. It all started with a big bang - May 19, 2012

There have been a lot of good scores for Trek by Goldsmith and Horner, most notably, and the Giacchino score is good too but not of them live up to this one, not even the other Goldsmith scores.

For me one of the best Trek moments ever is watching Kirk and Scotty check out the refitted Enterprise with the slow version of the fanfare in the background. Great cinema!

46. cgrest - May 19, 2012

I watched the video and the alternate/unused version of the Enterprise flyover sounds very 70’s ish to me. Yet the whole TMP score is just simply put a timeless masterpiece. Thank goodness were finally getting this soundtrack. The release date is already marked on my calendar!

47. Sebastian S. - May 19, 2012

# 37 Bob

I think I remember hearing a sample of the early Enterprise music (it was on the bonus features of the ST-TMP 2001 release DVD), and (even as a Goldsmith fan) I have to admit, it wasn’t his A-game. It sounded like covered wagons crossing the plains into the old west…

His final E theme was simply perfect. As was (IMO) the rest of the score. I also enjoy Goldsmith’s exotic music for the 1968 “Planet of the Apes” (primitive and eerie; loved the weird percussion noises and horns), as well as his music for ALIEN. Both beautiful (at times) and creepy…

But the unused themes for ST-TMP also illustrate that even the best composers can have ‘off’ days…. ;-)

48. Dr. Image - May 19, 2012

Hearing ANY unused Goldsmith stuff is like discovering gold.
I cannot wait to get my hands on this collection!! Makes his TNG-era offerings sound utterly pedestrian by comparison. (Too bad, but true…)

49. Chain of Command - May 19, 2012

This will be cool. Can’t wait to get it!

50. Jim Nightshade - May 20, 2012

my absolute fave goldsmiths are tmp and logans run—-no one has ever made any better film music for scifi movies….plus one of the last films to have an overture play before the movie was tmp…and john barrys black hole another excellent movie score from back then as was imo john williams best music for close encounters—course star wars,et, raiders also unforgettable scores–man a lot of great movies n movie music came out then—-yah seeing tmp opening night after waiting for a new trek was like nirvana for me—tho tmp has its flaws i never noticed them back then…they are easy to forgive and tmp is just about the only truly cosmic scifi trek adventure

51. Whalealein - May 20, 2012

There is no “successor” to Jerry Goldsmith. He was a legend. Nobody wrote scores like his when he was alive, except, maybe John Williams.

Goldsmith was and is my favorite film composer ever. I have and extensive collection of his scores…and not just sci-fi stuff!

52. dep1701 - May 20, 2012

IT”S. ABOUT. TIME!

Now, to those companies holding up the release of all the original series scores: GET. WITH. THE. PROGRAM!

53. VorlonKosh - May 21, 2012

It would be nice if they just release “complete” score to begin with. >8-(

54. Crusade2267 - May 22, 2012

I always loved the use of the TOS theme in this score, and was disappointed that I could never find a track of it. YAY!

55. Jake - May 23, 2012

I hate the fact this is overpriced and I juat bought the 20th Anniversary soundttack.. Sigh.. Wish people would release things COMPLETE to begin with, it’s nit fair to the fans.. But I guess missing three tracks isn’t that bad? The fact they didn’t release the score complete until now makes me feel like someone of the likes of George Lucas just conned me. I was thinking when I bought the 20th SE score that it would be complete.. Oh well, the tracks I’m missing will probably be on the internet anyway. If I can buy the onea I’m missing, that’s option number one of course. Buy if not.. Then nobody’s taking my money if they aren’t there to accept it!

56. Andy Matner - May 24, 2012

Is this available to the UK too?

57. COMPASSIONATE GOD - May 27, 2012

Good news. Expanded (complete) soundtracks are always welcome. While I cannot possibly say Goldsmith’s ST:TMP score is among the best of all time (that’s REALLY ignoring decades of superior work of other composers), it was a major change as part of the “Star Wars-ing” of ST as a big screen property. Memorable, but for ST movie scores, I thought Horner’s TWOK fit the franchise.

If only CBS would dig into the Paramount music vaults to recover/restore the surviving TOS scores for a big, multi-disc release. I would be there on day one for that!
