I must admit I am a big Star Trek fan, but this set is a revelation. It blows any bootleg or previous official release out of the water. Fans have been waiting for a release like this for many years, and it delivers! It is part of a steady stream of expanded editions of Star Trek film music soundtracks that have come out over the last few years, and which is still going on. The sound on this set, compared to any other release (the 1979 album on LP, later on CD, and the expanded 20th anniversary edition in 1999), is wonderful and reveals the depth of the scoring stage and all the finest (orchestral and musical) details (some of which I had never noticed). This score is remastered from the first-generation analogue recordings, but tape hiss is non-existent to negligible. All of the music 'unrolling' in in chronological order, combined with the enhanced sound, add to the whole listening experience. And the 40 page booklet tells you everything you want to know about the music and its genesis. All who love the music of Star Trek or the music of Jerry Goldsmith have surely heard about this release already before it came out and ordered it when it became available at La-La-Land Records. They blew through almost half the entire run (10.000 units) in a few days!

To quote the booklet, this set delivers a comprehensive presentation of the score along with unused early versions of several cues, the 1979 soundtrack LP album (along with the sonic and aesthetic standards of 1979), alternates, outtakes and historic scoring-stage excerpts. Disc 1 and part of disc 2 cover the film score. The rest of disc 2 is covered by 7 tracks of the unused early versions plus the 1979 album. Disc 3 covers alternates and additional music.

by the irreplaceable Jerry Goldsmith because this lavish 3-disc set release by La La
Land Records is definitely the definitive representation of a Goldsmith masterwork.
Like FSM's 5-disc BEN-HUR or Varese's massive SPARTACUS box set this release contains every single note that Jerry Goldsmith composed for this picture---in my opinion one of the best Trek films----along with the excellent ghostwriting assistance of Fred Steiner, a fine composer who scored some of the original series episodes. The remastered sound quality by Bruce Botnick is mind blowing and every nuance of the composer's intentions are clearly made evident. Its like really hearing this great score for the first time. Like a fine wine I spread out my lsitening of the discs for three days so I could savor every cue---except the Shaun Cassidy vocala, one of the worst songs I ever heard with the dumbest lyrics ever given to a great melody.
There are many who claim this score to have been the late composer's masterpiece, but as for me I'll say its definitely the greatest music score ever written for a science fiction film. Goldsmith himself could never quite match it with his other four scores for the Trek franchise, nor I doubt was he trying to but this is the greatest Star Trek film score ever written (and I have heard them all). That it didn't win the Oscar it so richly deserved is yet another reason I refuse to watch the Academy Awards anymore.
Scoring this film right after ALIEN one cannot helped but be amazed at this composer's staggering versatility. That the film's director was the great Robert Wise---for whom the composer wrote another masterpiece THE SAND PEBBLES---was a great asset for Goldsmith as this director was very well aware of the importance of
the function of music in film.

Other reviewers have gone into great detail about the contents of this set, so I won't bother. Let me just say up front, it's worth every penny of of it's original La La Land retail price ( which was quite reasonable for a set of this magnitude ). I will add a couple of clarifications.

As another reviewer stated, it has become somewhat commonplace now for soundtracks to be 'double-dipped'. In other words, a standard soundrack album is prepared for the initial release of a film or television show. If the sales of that album and/or the popularity of the film justify the expense, sometimes a second, more comprehensive release will be prepared ( this is not counting the soundtracks for movies geared towards fans of movies like the "Twilight" series, which often have nearly simultaneous releases of an album containing compilations of comtemporary music and a separate album of the actual film score ). Back in 1979 when the soundtrack album for "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" was released this was not the case. Usually you got one soundtrack release and that was it. Even blockbuster double album soundtracks like those by John Williams for "Star Wars" and "Superman" were incomplete due to the time limitations of vinyl albums, and the composers would often combine cues from unrelated sections of a film to lengthen tracks into what was felt to be a better home listening experience for the consumer. While this practice was probably fine for the casual listener, it was frustrating for purists who wanted the music to sound exactly as it did the theatre.
