|Horner's "Star Trek III" score to get similar treatment?||
The people over at FSM/Retrograde have said that they will try to get III released, but since it was put out by a different record company they have to start over at square one. They've asked people not to bug them too much while they work through it, though they're well aware how much everybody... Read More
