    Dear Disney,
    Thank you for planning the upcoming TRON 20th anniversary two-disc special edition. The features look phenomenal, but I would like to suggest one feature that may not be already planned: Wendy Carlos' entire score in isolated stereo.
    Specifically, Carlos has posted on her website (http://www.wendycarlos.com/news.html#baketape) that she went to a great amount of trouble to digitally rescue the TRON score from some master tapes that were in very poor condition. However, there is still no plan for a CD release of the soundtrack.
    How about including the entire soundtrack as an extra feature on the DVD? Since this would be the full score, as opposed to just the sections used in the film, it could be an alternate audio track on one of the documentaries, or perhaps the score could play over a photo gallery? In any case, it would be shame for it to not finally see the light of day in a digital format.
    Thanks for your consideration of my idea, and for this wonderful release, whatever the final features may be.

    I agree. I would love to have an isolated soundtrack to TRON on the DVD. This is one of my favorite childhood movies.

    This would be the best extra feature, if included.
    Please, Disney! [​IMG]

    I agree that this is the ideal chance to get the soundtrack heard by fans of the film.

    I wholeheartedly agree. This was one of my favorite movie scores as a child and still is. Carlos is a treasure and should finally get her due!

    A separate score is a feature I would certainly pay extra money for.

    I would love have this isolated soundtrack. Not becuase I love isolated soundtracks, but becuase it isn't available anywhere else. This would also be the most important feature to me for this DVD.

    I've always loved the silent film look of the characters in Tron, so to actually be able to watch it as a silent film, with Carlos' terrific score would be great!
