    I wanted to start a thread that people could go to to view a list of dvd's that also include the Isolated Film Score. I'm a big fan of these and wish more dvd's would include this feature. The few that I know off the top of my head are the following:

    Blade

    Pee-Wee's Big Adventure

    Alien

    I have to question a few of the titles from the SoundTrackNet list...
    Contact - I've never seen an isolated score. Cannot find any reviews that state it exists on this disc.
    Erin Brockovich - I've never seen an isolated score. Cannot find any reviews that state it exists on this disc.
    Glory - I have the original bare bones release. Checked reviews for the special edition... none state that it exists on the disc.
    Last of the Mohicans - I have the Director's Expanded Edition (DTS). I've never seen an isolated score. Cannot find any reviews that state it exists on this disc.
    If I'm wrong, please set me straight.

    And just for the record, here are some Laser Discs that had isolated scores or music/effects tracks that we won't be seeing on DVD.

    SCORE ONLY

    =Ben Hur (35th Anniversary CAV)

    The Golden Voyage Of Sinbad

    The Lion In Winter

    The Omen

    The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes (Mixed down only)

    1776 (Music Only Of Songs)

    MUSIC/EFFECTS TRACK

    =Dr. No (Criterion CAV)

    Goldfinger (Criterion CAV)

    Irma La Douce

    Samson And Delilah

    The Wizard Of Oz (MGM/UA CLV)

    There were also a couple of interesting alternate audio arrangments on the "Complete Show Boat" and Fox "My Fair Lady" LDs. On the boxed set version of the 1951 "Show Boat", Ava Gardner's unused vocals were on the analog tracks, as were Audrey Hepburn's on the "My Fair Lady" analog tracks. This gave the viewer the option to watch the entire film with their vocals instead of the standard dubbed ones, rather than have to experience them as a supplement only. It was a nice feature that I miss on the DVDs of both of them.

    Isolated scores alas appears to be something we'll be seeing considerably less of in the future because of the concern over illegal boot CDs being ripped from them.

    The Criterion Short Cuts has an isolated score on the analog tracks, the box sets of Tron and Snow White also do.

    I bought the Psycho signature collection laserdisc primarily for the isolated score that was not available on the DVD. [​IMG]

    The R2 versions of Glory and Erin Brockovich do indeed have isolated scores. I'm wishing I'd got the R1 version of The Dark Crystal now though. I didn't know it had an isolated score. Damn regional variations!

    I have

    Superman: The Movie

    Edward Scissorhands

    Toy Story 2

    I never would have known Scissorhands had one were it not for this list - though it is mixed with the Elfman commentary, so it's not completely isolated. I may have to check out Last of the Mohicans for this reason simply because I love the soundtrack. I also have to get Rudy for this.

    I wish some others had one like:

    E.T.

    Indiana Jones (any of them)

    The Hunt for Red October

    Star Wars

    Red Dwarf (series 1 and 2) DVDs have isolated music cues. (The individual songs are accessed through a menu.)

    Traffic: The Criterion Collection has the isolated score along with commentary by composer Cliff Martinez. There are some pop songs (most without the lyrics, I think) in the movie, I'm not sure if they were included.

    The E.T. laserdisc set from 10-12 years ago had an isolated score track of the complete John Williams score to it, which has still not been released on CD in its entirety after three different releases.
    However, the Superman DVD has portions of its score dialed out during the 5.0 score-only track, while in other places the score is slightly different. If you listen to the score just as Clark pulls out the green Kryptonian crystal from his backpack, there's a musical edit in the 5.1 sound mix that is different from the 5.0 score-only track. And while having the additional and alternate cues in a separate section are wonderful, between that section and the 5.0 score track the complete score still isn't on the DVD. Fortunately, the 2-CD Rhino release from 2000 fills in a number of those gaps where needed.
