CraveOnline and La La Land Records Give a Glimpse “Behind the Score” of TOS by Trek fm

La-La Land Records has treated Star Trek fans to a steady stream of soundtrack restorations and special editions over the past year. But fans of The Original Series have yet to receive anything as satisfying as what the Burbank music company now has planned. For the first time ever, all of the music written and recorded for TOS will be available to fans in a special 15-disc CD collection.

This incredible set includes compositions by Alexander Courage, George Durning, Jerry Fielding, Gerald Fried, Sol Kaplan, Samuel Matlovsky, Joseph Mullendore and Fred Steiner. In addition, a 100-page booklet with in-depth notes has been prepared by Star Trek historian and film music journalist Jeff Bond.

Pricing and release date has not been set, and La-La Land Records is gauging consumer interest on their website. If you’d like to show your support for the Star Trek: The Original Series Soundtrack Collection and get more information as it becomes available, visit

Ilia’s Theme Arrangement for Solo Acoustic Guitar by Trek fm

One of the most memorable musical moments in Star Trek history is “Ilia’s Theme” from The Motion Picture. This haunting overture welcomed Star Trek to the big screen and remains one of the franchise’s most recognizable melodies.

Tiniandrea, a guitarist from Italy, has put together his own arrangement of “Ilia’s Theme” and posted a video performance to YouTube. It’s a beautiful version and once again highlights how enduring this piece is—just like the original crew themselves.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture Soundtrack Being Refitted by La-La Land Records by Trek fm

There’s something in the air—or the space-time continuum—that has caused record companies to shower us with new releases of classic Trek soundtracks over the past six months. Now La-La Land Records brings us the most beautifully packaged collection yet with a 3-CD set for Star Trek: The Motion Picture, set for release on June 5.

Bruce Botnick has restored and remixed all 37 original 16-track 2-inch sound rolls to bring fans the most definitive version of Jerry Goldsmith’s score ever released. Limited to 10,000 units, the first two discs feature the original score while Disc Three delivers many bonuses including the disco cover version of the TMP theme by Bob James. That’s a must for your next viewing party, by the way.


And speaking of parties, the release is accompanied by a “Soundtrack Celebration” on June 4th at 7:30 p.m. at the Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood.

To purchase tickets for the Soundtrack Celebration visit TicketBud. Tickets are $17.50 in advance or $20 at the door. The soundtrack will be available for a special price of $30 (cash only) at the event, and Bruce Botnick and Craig Huxley will be on hand to sign copies.

You can get more information about the event from and about the album at La-La Land Records.
