    Ken Freeman - THE TRIPODS Expanded Archival Original TV Soundtrack (WITH SFX) [FLAC]

    Custom-created 2-disc expanded edition of Ken Freeman’s excellent synth-based soundtrack from the BBC’s 1984-85 sci-fi TV series, The Tripods.

    Additional material has been salvaged from the soundtracks of the episodes themselves, which actually contain much unreleased dialogue-free incidental music. SFX has been removed/circumvented where possible and although much SFX remains, it's rarely obtrusive. Lossy-sourced from the original 2.0 mono 192kbps Dolby Digital DVDs, the new material has been painstakingly edited (or downright butchered in some cases), EQ optimised and gentle stereo imaging applied. It has then been chronologically integrated with the 1994 album tracks (a few of which have been re-titled to correctly reflect the corresponding on-screen action) and the archive is presented entirely in FLAC to preserve the higher quality of the album tracks.

    Although the difference in quality between the two sources is clear, the end result is a worthwhile listen. And with the composer apparently confirming on a German fansite five years ago that the original audio masters for The Tripods no longer exist/are irreparable, this is the only way to hear more isolated music from the series other than that presented on the official 1994 album.

    Those wishing to stick with the original album can find it elsewhere on here (link from Cognosc is below).
