There’s something in the air—or the space-time continuum—that has caused record companies to shower us with new releases of classic Trek soundtracks over the past six months. Now La-La Land Records brings us the most beautifully packaged collection yet with a 3-CD set for Star Trek: The Motion Picture, set for release on June 5.
Bruce Botnick has restored and remixed all 37 original 16-track 2-inch sound rolls to bring fans the most definitive version of Jerry Goldsmith’s score ever released. Limited to 10,000 units, the first two discs feature the original score while Disc Three delivers many bonuses including the disco cover version of the TMP theme by Bob James. That’s a must for your next viewing party, by the way.
And speaking of parties, the release is accompanied by a “Soundtrack Celebration” on June 4th at 7:30 p.m. at the Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood.
To purchase tickets for the Soundtrack Celebration visit TicketBud. Tickets are $17.50 in advance or $20 at the door. The soundtrack will be available for a special price of $30 (cash only) at the event, and Bruce Botnick and Craig Huxley will be on hand to sign copies.
You can get more information about the event from CreatureFeature.com and about the album at La-La Land Records.
