Official tie-in soundtrack to the forthcoming Star Trek: The Motion Picture: The Director's Edition
Presents the full film score on CD1, continuing through the start of CD2.
The program begins with the long version of the “Overture,” reflective of “The Director’s Edition,” with the short version heard in 1979 in the section of “Alternates” on CD2, which feature early versions of major score cues that were later reworked.
Closing out the presentation is the enduring 1979 soundtrack album program, re-created from the remixed first generation master material for consistent and superior sound quality throughout the set.
Matessino collaborates with Jeff Bond on the thoroughly researched album notes, which feature interview excerpts by Goldsmith, Botnick and performers Craig Huxley and David Newman.
The packaging and 28-page full color booklet are designed by Jim Titus and feature new images from “The Director’s Edition.”
