I’ve been reading Isaac Asimov’s FOUNDATION trilogy lately with the few STAR TREK scores I own as my musical background. One that is missing is Film Score Monthly’s recent release of the complete, expanded edition of James Horner‘s score for STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN.
I plan on reviewing the CD next week. That is, if I get my copy by then. This release has caused a big order baglog at Screen Archives Entertainment (the exclusive online retailers of the CD), and not just from film score fans. Their booth at last week’s Comic-Con in San Diego apparently went over very well. Good for Lukas, Craig, and everyone involved with this release!
But before I can write the review, I need to see the movie, which I haven’t seen since it’s release in 1982. I never owned the old truncated LP of the score and have only heard the music that one time in the theater. So I’ll be watching the film this weekend (when it arrives from Netflix) in anticipation of my CD hopefully arriving next week.
Until then, may the force be… Oops, my bad.
Do you think KHAN has the ability to bring about some new film music converts?
