When they announced they were releasing a Y&R soundtrack, I was thrilled beyond words! All those beautiful, haunting, melodic music cues of the 80's and EARLY 90's, some of them very reminiscent of "Twin Peaks", would finally be mine! Well, not exactly. These are all, as they previous reviewer put it, "generic". I mean they sound like Muzac or the other personality-less music the other soaps use! Could they not get the rights/clearance for the older music? Were they composed by outside sources and therefore wouldn't bring in as much money as these, which were composed by the currect staff? Another reviewer mentioned the cue used for a tender moment with Nikki and Victor, well that's the one I wanted second most of all - it's simply breathtaking! Almost reminds one of the 70's "Romeo and Juliet" music... My favorite piece is what my girlfriend would call the "twinkling" music - they would play it whenever something "mysterious" was going down. And what about the thundering piano "doom" music (often used during Nikki's alcoholism storyline). Y&R, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE release the classic music for your 30th Anniversary next year and maybe a box set of classic moments on DVD to go along with it? Suggestions: David Kimble undoes his plastic surgery bandages to find the word "KILLER" written on his forehead; Sheila and Lauren's catfight in the lab; Nikki gets trashed at the Collonade room and starts stripping; Nina and Cricket in goofy disguises infiltrate black market baby broker Rose's inner sanctum; Jack Abbott enters his office and Victor (whom everyone presumed dead in a fiery car crash) turns around in the black leather swivel chair and Jack almost has a heart attack. Any more suggestions?

UPDATED 12-20-2015... My quick review of this more recent 1990's Y&R soundtrack is that it's very hit and miss, lacking much of the character and charm of the earlier 1970's - early '80s music cues that helped establish Y&R as a soap opera that was a cut above all of the others.

Now, I'm going to give all of you disappointed early Y&R music fans a little history lesson on the EARLY music cues, as I have spent many years researching the early Y&R music cues (off and on)... There are many reasons why we will probably never get an all-encompassing soundtrack for the early years of Y&R, though it would be nice to at least see some sort of compilation that is more inclusive than the old vinyl LP that you can purchase as "used" every now and then. The primary reason is that many early cues were borrowed from other productions and other composers.

The original 1970's Y&R music cue composers (the ones actually hired to create new music for the series) to the best of my knowledge at least, were Don McGinnis, Jerry Winn, and Bob Todd. The main theme however (Nadia's Theme) was done by Barry De Vorzon and Perry Botkin Jr. Per Wikipedia: "The melody, originally titled "Cotton's Dream," was composed, and lyrics were written for it, by De Vorzon and Botkin Jr. as incidental music for the 1971 theatrical film "Bless the Beasts and Children". The instrumental version was commercially released on that film's soundtrack album on A&M Records. The soundtrack also included "Lost", a song set to the same melody but with different lyrics, performed by Renee Armand. Botkin Jr. later composed a rearranged version of the instrumental theme for the U.S. TV soap opera The Young and the Restless".

I love Y&R, and I didn't think the soundtrack was all that bad. Maybe not the best, but I love soothing instrumental music. I am still in search of that one piano segment that plays when Billy and Mac are together in a romantic moment. If anyone knows where I can find this then please let me know! I need that entire piano segment!

I agree with the first review. I was a fan of Y/R in the late 70's and 80's and found the music so beautiful it has haunted me to this day that I cannot find out or obtain that same music. I would love to know if it is available on any other recording.

I was also disapointed by the new soundtrack to Y&R. I too loved the music from the much earlier years. I have watched the show since the debut in 1973 and by far the music on the show was better then as well. I was so hoping to hear that music also. They had some beautiful cues and themes that are still wonderful that they don't even bother to play anymore and that is such a waste. They should consider marketing a box set for release in 2003 upon their 30th anniversary and a video collection as well would be welcomed from some vetran fans like myself.

I eagerly anticipated the release of this CD because ever since since I started watching Y&R in the 80's, I thought the background music was spellbinding, mysterious, beautifully orchestrated and far above the caliber of any soap's music. This CD, however, is terribly disappointing because the majority (like all but one) of the selections are newer music cues from the mid to late 90's that all sound quite similar. The don't have the familiarity and distinction of the classic music cues I was so hoping would be included. VERY DISAPPOINTING!
