by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Music,TOS , trackback

Back in August we announced that LaLaLand Records was releasing the ultimate original Star Trek soundtrack with all the music from the series in a giant 15-disc box set. We now have more images of the set and the track listing for the first disc. They have also announced a special free Star Trek event in Hollywood, CA on December 3rd (the night before release). Get all the details below.   

 

More Details & Images From TOS Complete Box Set + December Event in LA

The fine folks at LaLaLand Records have provided us with some new images for their exciting box set containing all the music from the original Star Trek series, much of which has never been released. The set contains not just the music that was used on screen but additional music that they never used. There is so much music it takes up 15 discs, as you can see from this image of the disc art.

The set has one disc clamshell case for each season. Each season gets its own 32-page booklet of liner notes. There will also be an additional 24-page overview booklet, as can be seen in the image below.

And today LaLaLand has revealed the detailed track list for the first disc in the collection, check it out…

1. shamelord - November 15, 2012

Great, great, great ! The TOS music has always been a favorite of mine.

2. Andy Patterson - November 15, 2012

I salivate like a dog over a piece of meat for these. Can’t wait!

3. Ensign RedShirt - November 15, 2012

It’s a huge chunk of change, but I have to have it. Been waiting many years for some of this music.

4. Caesar - November 15, 2012

Holy shit that looks awesome. I’ve put aside the cash for it, so she will be mine.

5. Curious Cadet - November 15, 2012

Wow. All the seats at the Egyptian have been sold out already. That’s pretty impressive for a 50 year old TV series …

6. Emperor Mike of the Empire - November 15, 2012

Must have this!. I must have this!!!!.
I MUST HAVE THIS MUSIC SET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
By order of the Emperor of the Empire. This must be so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

7. Marcus - November 15, 2012

I’ll be there. I can tell you all that these guys worked very hard on this project…please come out and support us if you can!

8. Shatoupee - November 15, 2012

Can’t wait for this boxed set! What do the M-numbers mean in the track listings (e.g., M10, M11, M21, etc.)?

9. Jonboc - November 15, 2012

Merry Christmas to me! This amazing compilation WILL be under my tree.

10. RedGreen - November 15, 2012

@Shatoupee: Film music used to be recorded on reels of about 20 minutes each. The first piece of music on the first reel would be numbered something like “1m1,” the second might be “1m2″ and so on. Likewise, the first track of the second reel might be “2m1″ …you get the idea.

11. RedGreen - November 15, 2012

TV music is probably recorded and labeled in a similar fashion.

12. Shatoupee - November 15, 2012

Thanks, RedGreen.

13. Sebastian S. - November 15, 2012

Ugh!! << (cry of frustration)

Want… this…. so… bad.

14. K-7 - November 15, 2012

Let’s be honest folks, perhaps 2 solid remastered CD’s covering the best of TOS series music would be about right. I mean, its kind of slight variations on the same stuff after that point, isn’t it? Let’s be honest here, and if I am wrong, please tell me why?

15. Jeff Bond - November 15, 2012

You’re wrong. There’s 17 hours of music. Out of the 15 CDs, 12 consist of original scores written for the show by seven different composers, and three have “library cues” which range from adaptations of music previously recorded for the show–sometimes done with different tempi, different arrangements and other changes, and some is totally original music, but written “wild”–i.e., not scored to a specific scene. So while there IS some repeated music, it’s a small percentage of the entire set, and it is different enough in performance and sound to differentiate it from the rest of the music on the set. There are also sound effects which were created musically, songs, and “source” music–Trelane playing the harpsichord, for example. It’s a huge variety of music and to my knowledge no television series has ever had all of its recorded music archived like this.

16. Alain Prost - November 15, 2012

Haha. Gotta love the reminder about the Generations soundtrack at the bottom there. That’s the kind of CD you’d buy someone if you really, really hated them.

17. BeatleJWOL - November 16, 2012

@15 I love when you post that info. I don’t believe this is the first time you’ve responded to such a challenge. :D

@16 The music might arguably be better than the film…

18. David B - November 16, 2012

1pm which time zone?

19. Caesar - November 16, 2012

I think that’s pacific, which is 4 PM EST. Aren’t they in CA?

20. Jeyl - November 16, 2012

*Contains “Theme From Star Trek (TV Series)” by Alexander Courage and Gene Roddenberry

Just an fyi. There is nothing of Gene Roddenberry’s contributions in Star Trek’s theme in any of it’s official depictions. He took advantage of a contract detail where after writing lyrics for the theme (which even he never intended to be used) would grant him not only credit but also half the royalties. The man who preaches how humanity will be perfect in the future and won’t have any need for money pretty much ripped off a talented artist who was just trying to make an honest living.

21. Andy Patterson - November 16, 2012

I’ve been saving since I found out about this. I wonder, any unused tracks for “the Way to Eden”? Guess I’ll find out.

Still can’t wait.

22. Simon - November 16, 2012

#16 – Wrong there. GENERATIONS has a decent score. It’s not the best of the series but I do prefer it to IV and VI. I purchased the disc the day I learned about it and received it Halloween.

23. Son of Sarek - November 16, 2012

Look forward to hearing some snippets of these timeless scores! Indeed this set is “holiest of holies” in terms of Trek music and the most extensive soundtrack release for a TV series in history!

24. Shatoupee - November 16, 2012

@Jeyl, as you said, it was in the contract with the composer that gave Roddenberry the right to write the lyrics. I see nothing inhumane about that and it’s called show BUSINESS.

25. Jeff Bond - November 16, 2012

I believe there is a bit of unused material for “The Way To Eden”–you hear the full recorded versions of all the songs, which were then edited for the episode.

26. Victor Hugo - November 16, 2012

22.Indeed, “Generations” soundtrack was beautiful on teathers, and on CD, it was so fresh and full of hope, i truly loved it.

27. Uberbot - November 17, 2012

Any unused tracks from Spock’s Brain? Love that score!!

28. Jeff Bond - November 17, 2012

I don’t think there’s anything unused but we do have the entire score, and I believe there is some rehearsal material of Fred Steiner working with the orchestra on that one.

29. Jerry Modene - November 17, 2012

#20 – and that, according to Solow and Justman’s book, is why Alexander Courage never wrote any more music for Star Trek after episode 10, “What are Little Girls Made Of?”.

30. Tony Hardy - November 17, 2012

Sincere thanks to Jeff Bond and lalaland for making all of this possible. For me, it’s a historic moment in soundtrack collecting. I don’t think that it could’ve been done better, or that anyone would have cared more. The actual order date cannot get here soon enough!

31. Uberbot - November 17, 2012

#28 — Very cool!! Thanks Jeff!! You ROCK!!!!

32. Andy Patterson - November 18, 2012

@ 25. Jeff Bond – November 16, 2012
I believe there is a bit of unused material for “The Way To Eden”–you hear the full recorded versions of all the songs, which were then edited for the episode.

Cool! A friend of mine sent me a version of the jam session of Spock and the hippie chick with the bicycle wheel. You hear the recording tech counting them off very loudly, in a very ’60′-ish type of way,…. “1, 2, 3, 4″. Very much looking forward to hearing it all.

@28 …”there is some rehearsal material of Fred Steiner working with the orchestra on that one.”

Digging that! I love that kind of stuff. It’s like hearing Carl Stalling working with the Warner Bros. orchestra for the Looney Tunes stuff. Thanks Jeff. And thanks to everyone who put this together.

@30 “The actual order date cannot get here soon enough!”
Yeah. Waiting for it.

33. captain_neill - November 18, 2012

I just got the Generations score last week and it is awesome. I liked Dennis McCarthy’s music for the film and it was great to have the SOran kidnaps Geordi track and the whole music for evacuation before the saucer sep and crash.

Def worth getting.

TOS score I really want to get but being unemployed is a little out of my price range at the moment, especially with Christmas.

34. Patrick Gleeson - November 19, 2012

@ 33 I agree – Generations is a superb score – my favourite of the movies. I’m particularly pleased with the inclusion of Guinan’s Nexus, the HMS Enterprise, and the additioanal Christmas theme.
That TOS set is mine :-)

35. Andy - November 19, 2012

quote:
“to my knowledge no television series has ever had all of its recorded music archived like this.”

Actually, I think DARK SHADOWS was the first show to have such an exhaustive archive of music. Some would say it was “too” complete, with a lot of extremely short cues and repetition, making it difficult to listen to as “an album”.

36. Alex G - November 19, 2012

‎*Drools* My precious…

37. Paul - November 20, 2012

Generations soundtrack? What, Generations has enough music to fill two CDs? I don’t remember anything except opening theme. :-/ While I’m sure there was some music playing in background, it was kind of… not remarkable enough to remember. *shrug*

38. Jon Witchell - November 20, 2012

I’m certainly looking forward to buying this! Looking forward to hearing the unused music, as well as being able to know which tracks were episode-specific and which were library cues.

In particular, I look forward to hearing music from Metamorphosis, Spock’s Brain, Elaan of Troyius, The Enterprise Incident, And the Children Shall Lead and The Empath.

It would be nice if La La Land Records uploaded one short segment of a track on their website, something to whet our appetites…

39. soundtrekker - November 21, 2012

@#38 Jon:

There ARE some exciting audio samples on trekcore:

http://www.trekcore.com/merchandise/sttos_soundtrackintro.html

40. Jon Witchell - November 21, 2012

@#39 Thanks so much for the link! They sound fantastic! Loved the Mace fight in its pristine quality!

41. Spock's Brain, sort of - November 24, 2012

Yeah, but, how do you ORDER it? How does one GET the thing?

Are we to wait till December 4th at 1:00 pm to be allowed to order this? Is that the idea?

42. Spock's Brain, sort of - November 24, 2012

I went back to the La La Land site again and I wish I had Spock’s brain, perhaps then I’d be smart enough to figure out how to order this box set.

Or, is it possible that La La won’t take our money until Dec 4th? I’ve never heard of such a thing.

43. Lucca novità - November 25, 2012

I think the admin of this web page is genuinely working hard in favor of his website,
because here every stuff is quality based material.

44. Spock's Brain, sort of - November 25, 2012

Over at Trek Core, it seems clear that, indeed, the intention is to NOT take orders until Dec 4th. Well, OK.

Me, I would have started taking orders (and people’s money) months ago. If, to everyone’s surprise, they got 10,000 orders, then they manufacture 10,000 sets and reap the profits (at no risk seeing how they’ve already received the money). If, for some reason, it’s not possible to manufacture 10,000 sets by Dec 4th, at least those who must wait would have to wait less time (because La La, having taken the orders ahead of time, would have a few months head start on manufacturing the extra sets)
.
Why decide ahead of time how many units to manufacture? Instead of taking orders Dec 4th, why not ship them out on Dec 4th?

So, on Dec 4th at 1 pm, Trekers all over the world will be trying to place their orders all at once? Hope the site can handle it. I hope it doesn’t crash. I hope I won’t have to go through hours of frustration trying to get my order in. I hope I’ll get my order in before they’re all gone.

I suppose La La must have its reasons, but it sure seems like a less than ideal way of doing things.

45. Spock's Brain, sort of - November 25, 2012

I listened to the Trek Core samples last night. Very nice indeed. Excellent clarity, detail and dynamics. No background noise, very low distortion and, though loud, I don’t hear any over use of compression. I can’t wait!

BTW: One of the many little bits I”m hoping for is an extended, perhaps full-length version of Goodnight Sweetheart from City on the Edge.

46. Andy Patterson - November 26, 2012

@44

Hmmm,…you’re getting me thinking. And starting to worry. Your words make sense.

47. solo04 - November 26, 2012

I love the music ,but I’m wondering if they will release it by seasons. $225 is a lot of money!!

48. Spock's Brain, sort of - November 26, 2012

Listened to GNPs Amock Time soundrack last night. Full Stereo! I mean really nice stereo spread across the soundfield!

I wonder why that recording was among the few to be recorded multi-track? Kinda wierd.

49. Neil S. Bulk - November 27, 2012

The GNP release of Amok Time is not true stereo. It was processed to sound like stereo. We used the same mono tapes for our set.

50. Carab - November 29, 2012

Glad I lived long enough to see Star Trek getting the treatment it deserves, both in audio and in video. We’ve come a long ways since the days when I used to hold my cassette recorder up to the TV speaker for an hour just to hear the music again.

I, too, hope that everyone who wants to order a set is able to get one. Conventional wisdom says you sell more sets when you take pre-orders. And you get an idea of the amount of interest, as someone mentioned.

Thanks to everyone who worked on this project for giving it the care and love it needed to be done right. Much appreciated.

51. Spock's Brain, sort of - December 4, 2012

Well, it’s now 1:15 EST, and I can’t get through. The site is jammed of course. I hope I get through eventually.

52. Spock's Brain, sort of - December 4, 2012

Ah, I was whining about nothn’ my order’s in. Even across the planet, I guess there aren’t THAT many Trek maniacs out there chomping at the bit to spend $237 on Star Trek music. Still, enough to keep the website down for about 30 minutes!

53. BiggestTOSfanever - December 5, 2012

@52 I got into the site 20min ahead of time and just refreshed at 1pm.
Merry Christmas to me.
