    Transformers: Lighting Their Darkest Hour - Vince DiCola

    Ages ago I said I would upload these but for various reasons I hadn't yet. These CD's mean a lot to me and I wish that they were still available for people to buy as they really are great, particularly Artistic Transformations.

    These CD's aren't ripped in FLAC but Apple Lossless (m4a), sorry but thats the format that is easiest for me to work with. You want something else, feel free to convert it :-)

    What did you use to compress the files for upload?

    BetterZip on the Mac. I told it to produce archives of 300MB's, I tested unzipping before uploading. Are you having problems?

    It didnt recognize it when I downloaded it. I renamed it to .zip and Winrar said it was a bad archive.

    I think that Betterzip is Mac only. Do you think you could re-archive it in a .rar and re-post?

    All the ZIPs opened fine on my end, via 7-Zip.

    Thanks, by the way. I downloaded these quite a while ago in MP3 320kbps within a 4.5GB torrent with a bunch of other Transformers music (pre-RotF), but it's great to finally have them in a lossless form.

    *chuckles* Typical just as I finish uploading the RAR version Glad you got it open in the end cdc01a.

    Getter 1: Agreed, one of the first scores that I recorded of the tele so I could have it. I enjoyed the song album but was always miffed it was missing music I liked.

    Another good one that complements this one nicely is The Protoform Sessions, I love that one. It has some awesome stuff on it.

    I have it uploaded to my DivShare page if anyone wants it; it's not in FLAC, though.

    Check my other thread, that has The Protoform Sessions in Apple Lossless which you could transcode to FLAC

    Just saw it, thanks!! It's a good one. I like Artistic Transformations okay, not my most favorite, but it's good. Vince DiCola's Transformers music is always good to me. Two other ones that have concert performances of a lot of the movie's cues are the 1997 "'Til All Are One" Album and the "Botcon '97 - The Concert" album, from the concert that Vince DiCola and Stan Bush did at BotCon '97. Those are good too.

    Don't think I've heard the Botcon '97 - The Concert album.

    Am to understand correctly that this is the complete soundtrack exclusively released for a convention and unavailable otherwise? This is my husband's Holy Grail of movie soundtracks (once he finally tracked down Predator). Transformers is his entire childhood, and his love for it knows no bounds. Words cannot express my thanks for uploading it. D/ling it for him will definitely score me some big points in the "best wife ever" category!

    Yes it is the complete score & no it wasn't exclusive to the conventions (an earlier release was exclusive but that was missing the pieces of music on the official album release from the time).

    It was sold for a time online back in 2001 (along with Artistic Transformations and The Protoform Sessions) by 3H Enterprises (later 3H Productions), which was the/some of the people behind Botcon, to give people who couldn't attend Botcon an opportunity to get a copy of the music.

    i.e. if they don't keep re-releasing this score in some form or another, DiCola and his family go hungry

    *rimshot*

    *chuckles* Mmm, to be fair LTDH or some form of it hasn't been re-released. Heck we only got 4 new tracks with the recent anniversary edition.

    Yeah, absolutely! Twas just joking about DiCola's entire fame been based on this score (and maybe Rocky too)

    But hey, I ain't busting... it's much more fame than me and my band have!

    Hey, so I'd like to have this in ALAC format but the links seem to be down. Please reupload? I'll love you forever. I wanna upgrade from my MP3s.

    Actually, I'd love to buy the freaking album (how I found this page), but I don't think that'll ever happen. I have Protoform Sessions and Artistic Transformations at least; they might still be available on Vince's site.

    If you have 'Til All Are One, I'd appreciate an Apple Lossless upload of that as well. I realize it's mostly the same content as on Lighting Their Darkest Hour, but it has other goodies too, and I'd just like to have the full album for "completion's sake."
