What if you have the original scores?   Thursday, November 6, 2003 (6:41 a.m.) 

Are the The City of Prague Philharmonic re-recordings worth hearing if you own the original soundtracks from all of these films? Doesn't sound like there is any unreleased music here, just new recordings of music available on the original soundtracks, however, if the these recordings are an improvement over the original ones, it might be worth picking up this set.

This CD does contain the world-preimere recording of "He's Toast" from the DS9 episode LIFE SUPPORT and "One Last Visit" from the DS9 Episode "The Visitor" plus the first recording of concert arrangement of the DS9 theme which is outstanding, it also contains a pure orchestral recording of Ron Jones' opening title theme to STARFLEET ACADEMY.

The Cd also contains "Tasha's Farewell" from the TNG episode "Skin of Evil".

This review fails to mention this and seems only interrested in discussing the feature film scores.

How nice. Ford Thaxton has reared his bloated head to inform the world...

They were the first recordings on album but they were all released by SILVA before. Clemmensen talked about them on the SPACE AND BEYOND albums reviews and this time mostly talked about the two new recordings heard here on this album.

Thaxton seems only interested in promoting his handiwork and fails to mention that he will someday die from all of the huge globules of FAT attached to his body.

Thank you, Mr Thaxton.

I asked about music unavailable on the original scores (IE non-silva compilations), and he answered my question nicely.

I'm still curious about opinions on these performances vs the original performances. I don't usually buy compiliations, but I recall the original Cinema Choral Classics album (which I own) actually improved on many of the pieces recorded.

IMHO (which may well be biased,so take it with a grain of salt), I think i's the best of all of the newly recorded TREK albums in the marktet in terms of Content.

Is every piece on par with the soundtrack recording, No.

Some do suffer when compared to the OST, (Mostly the Goldsmith Tracks), but then again they are far from awful either. The suite from TREK X is quite good and the TMP tracks are closer in spirit then the Kunzel Take on them.

The outstanding tracks (Such as the DS9 overture, Generations,TREK II & IV,etc..) more then make it worth having if your a fan looking for a compilation to toss into the car for a long trip.

I'm sure others will disagree, but that's the way I feel.

Why was this necessary? I realize that some people may have problems with Ford (just like people have problems with people everywhere), but nothing he said deserved that kind of personal attack. Honestly, that makes you no better than the person you believe deserves the hostility. And who cares what kind of shape he's in? I seriously doubt that many of the people who spend time surfing the web are bodybuilders. Even so, who cares? I don't know him personally, but I'm sick of the personal attacks by people here and all over the net. You don't like what he says, fine. Address your posts to that.

Thanks for the info, Ford.

Actually the One Last Visit cue is on The Best of Star Trek: 30th Anniversary album, and it is superior on that album, but this CD is awesome. The Generations, ST:II, and ST:VI are all superior than the original soundtracks. Though, in my opinion the Goldsmith and Talgorn takes on Varese's Ultimate Star Trek of Insurrection and First Contact are better than the Prague performances.

The Skin of Evil cue is superior to the Motzing/Edel take as well.

Wish Silva would release another Space/Sci Fi album. Seems silly to release the Science Fiction Album Volume 1 and never follow up on it...

on a somewhat related topic: I inherited boxes and boxes of classical sheet music signed by the composers from my (violinist) grandfather...also a number of original handwritten musical pieces...what should I do with these? any suggestions?
