    TV Soundtracks 

     David Arnold 
  • Die Another Day (expanded) - without Madonna's song, by the way.
  • Godzilla (1998) There was supposed to be a score album with the movie but it was cancelled after the movie underperformed. This 2-disc set was later reissued by BSX Records as part of the 3-CD Godzilla: The Ultimate Edition. The complete score over first two discs; the 49-minute score album that never saw the light of day in 1998 is on CD 3.
  • Independence Day (expanded)
  • Shaft (2000) - unsurprisingly, none of Arnold's score was on the Arista Records soundtrack album.
  • Stargate - the 25th Anniversary Expanded Edition. Milan's release alongside the movie was 65 min. Varèse Sarabande issued a Deluxe Edition running a generous 73 min. This expanded release has the full 80:20 film score presentation, plus extras for 2-CD set clocking in at 109:29.
  • The Stepford Wives - the 2004 version.
  • The World Is Not Enough (expanded)
     John Barry 
  • Dances with Wolves - a 2-disc expansion of this beloved music was issued by the label in 2004.
  • First Love - Like the title directly below, almost all of Barry's original scoring was thrown out of the movie (and replaced with pre-existing pieces -unlike the title below). He took his name off the movie in protest.
  • The Golden Child - While the movie was almost completely rescored by Michel Colombier. Both composers' scores were included on La-La Land's three-disc set. As were the songs, duh. The Capitol Records soundtrack issued in 1986 had (along with the expected songs) 16m 11s of Colombier's scoring, and the one original Barry cuenote  (3m 47s) kept in the movie; although Barry's thematic material is the basis for Ann Wilson's The Best Man In The World."
     Elmer Bernstein 
  • Airplane! - the soundtrack album released in 1980 was more of an aural souvenir of the movie with lots of the movie's dialogue along with music. This CD was the first official score release.
  • The Shootist - Because Bernstein's score for was John Wayne's last bow was so short, the label paired it with the CD premiere of the 1965 Columbia Records soundtrack album for the title beneath.
  • The Sons of Katie Elder - This release has the score has as recorded for the movie (this doesn't contain Johnny Cash, mind).
  • Trading Places - This had no soundtrack album in 1983.
  • True Grit - This has the music as heard in the movie. You do get the Glen Campbell song.
     John Debney 
     Danny Elfman 
  • Batman (1989) - Expanded with the complete score on CD1 and the 1989 Warner (Bros.) Records score album on CD2, with extras.
  • Batman Returns - Complete score over 2 CDs. Both Elfman Batscores are part of the Expanded Archival Collection.
  • Big Top Pee-wee - Expanded from the Arista Records album, and without the dialogue clips.
  • Black Beauty - the 1994 version had a soundtrack album on Giant. This release was a generous expansion.
  • Darkman - a 30th Anniversary Expanded Edition with the 1990 MCA soundtrack album on CD 1 and an expanded presentation of the score on CD 2.
  • Mars Attacks! - Expanded from the Atlantic Records album. As part of the Warner Bros.-affiliated Expanded Archival Collection.
  • Mission: Impossible (1996) - a 2-disc expansion; the 1996 score album on CD 1 With the film score itself on the second disc.
  • Planet of the Apes (2001) - The complete film score over the first 2CDs, then the Sony Classical soundtrack album on CD 3.
  • Restless
  • Scrooged - None of his score was on the 1988 A&M Records soundtrack album, Until this score album came out in 2011, there was only an 8:44 suite available on Music for a Darkened Theatre - Film and Television Music Volume One
  • Taking Woodstock
     Harold Faltermeyer 
  • Beverly Hills Cop - La-La Land wanted to release this expanded edition (which drops the songs from Shalamar, Rockie Robbins, Danny Elfman and The System and substantially increases the underscore content) on a 2-disc set paired with the title directly beneath, but they were compelled to release each album separately.
  • Beverly Hills Cop II - none of his score was on the MCA soundtrack album this time around, so this marks the first release of the sequel's scoring. Seven of the songs on the soundtrack album were retained on the La-La Land edition, including Bob Seger's "Shakedown" and George Michael's "I Want Your Sex."
  • Fletch Lives - This was released as part of the Universal Pictures Film Music Heritage Collection.
  • Tango & Cash

     Jerry Goldsmith 
  • Bad Girls - expands on the 1994 album on 20th Century Fox Film Scores.
  • The Blue Max - The score as intended on CD 1, the soundtrack album that Mainstream issued in 1966 on CD 2. Reissued in 2020 as part of Volume 1 of the Goldsmith At 20th series (paired with Von Ryan's Express).
  • Breakheart Pass
  • Dennis the Menace - Expanded from the Big Screen Records release in 1993.Part of the Expanded Archival Collection.
  • The Edge - As you've probably guessed, expands on the RCA Victor album released with the movie in 1997.
  • Extreme Prejudice - This expands on Intrada's 1987 release of this Rated M for Manly score, includes the film version of "The Plan" and the original which was included on the 1987 albumnote  You also get the un-used trailer music and his Carolco Pictures logo music.
  • First Knight - this 2-disc release expands on the Epic Soundtrax release.
  • Forever Young - this 1993 movie is the only time you'll find Jerry Goldsmith, J. J. Abrams (still going as Jeffrey Abrams at the time), Mel Gibson working on the same movie. This album is expanded from the Big Screen Records release in 1993.Part of the Expanded Archival Collection.
  • Innerspace - The Geffen Records soundtrack album that came out with the movie in 1987; gave Goldsmith all of Side B (or if you were able to buy and play compact discs in 1987, 25:32 after the songs).Needless to say, the geatly expanded edition doesn't include the songs.
  • Rio Lobo - expansion of the Prometheus release.
  • Not Without My Daughter - The complete score (the album that Intrada issued in 1991 was a lot shorter.)
  • Seconds - Released on an album paired with his score for 1994 romcom I.Q. Mood Whiplash-phobes, beware.
  • Sleeping with the Enemy - This expanded release doesn't include Van Morrison's "Brown-Eyed Girl," unlike the Columbia Records album issued along with the movie in 1991.
  • Stagecoach - Expanded release of his score for the 1966 version, paired (like its previous release on the Film Score Monthly label) with Goldsmith's work on The Loner.
  • Star Trek: The Motion Picture - The definitive release. The 3-CD release is the complete score plus alternates and extras, and a remastered version of 1979's Columbia Records album.
  • Star Trek V: The Final Frontier - This 2-CD expansion has the complete score on CD 1, with the Epic Records soundtrack album and additional music (including the version of "The Moon’s a Window to Heaven" you actually hear in the film) on CD 2. Intrada subsequently reissued this.
  • The Swarm - a 2-disc edition with the complete scorenote  and the 1978 Warner (Bros.) Records soundtrack album. Under the Expanded Archival Collection branding.
  • The Sum of All Fears - this expands on the Elektra Records album issued in 2002 with the movie.
  • Warning Shot twice. See TV Soundtracks for the second time.

     James Horner 
     James Newton Howard 
     Michael Kamen 
  • Die Hard - Their release of the score was a 2-CD expansion of Varèse Sarabande's CD Club single-disc release in 2002 (there was no soundtrack album released in 1988).
    • Then there was a 3-CD 30th anniversary edition with many extras such as the tracked-in music from John Scott's score for Man On Fire (The 1987 one - not this version.) and James Horner's score for Aliens - and some of the songs used like Run–D.M.C.'s "Christmas In Hollis." and Vaughn Monroe's version of "Let It Snow."
  • Die Hard with a Vengeance - The RCA Victor soundtrack album wasn't a satisfactory experience for fans, with many key cues missing. One reviewer described it as an effing disgrace. The 2-CD expansion jettisons most of the non-Kamen material (it does retain The Lovin' Spoonful's "Summer in the City.")

  • The Last Boy Scout
  • The Lethal Weapon Soundtrack Collection (Michael Kamen, Eric Clapton and David Sanborn) - This 8-CD boxset contains remastered editions of the first three movies' soundtrack albums and expanded score presentations for the first three movies, and the first officially sanctioned soundtrack release for Lethal Weapon 4.note  Also, some of the proceeds go to The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation (set up by Kamen to benefit musical education).
  • Road House - Expands on Intrada's incomplete release.
     Bear McCreary he also has a section to himself on the label's site. 

     Ennio Morricone 
  • Fat Man and Little Boy
  • Two Mules for Sister Sara - This 2-CD release (with the film score on CD 1 and the 1970 soundtrack album issued by Kapp Records on CD 2) intended to mark the film's 50th anniversary, turned into an unplanned tribute to Morricone when the label issued it as part of The Universal Pictures Film Music Heritage Collection shortly after his 2020 passing; the release is dedicated to him.
  • The Untouchables - The complete score on CD 1; the 1987 A&M Records soundtrack album and bonus tracks on CD 2.

     John Morris 
  • Blazing Saddles - there wasn't a soundtrack album in 1974...This came out in 2008.
  • Clue
  • The In-Laws
  • Spaceballs - This did have a soundtrack album in 1987 from Atlantic Records with a hefty amount of songs from the likes of Van Halen, The Pointer Sisters, Jeffrey Osborne and The Spinnersnote , as well as some re-recordings of Morris cues done specially for the soundtrack albumnote  LLL's score album (subtitled The 19th Anniversary Edition) includes those album tracks along with the full score and alternates, and The Spinners' end title song, co-written by Mel Brooks.

     David Newman 
     Thomas Newman 
     John Ottman 

     Alan Silvestri

     Other Titles In Their Catalogue 
TitanAE (Graeme Revell) The Capitol Records soundtrack album issued included the likes of Fun Lovin' Criminals, Jamiroquai, Luscious Jackson and Texas. Not any of Revell's score. It wasn't until 2014 that was set right.
  • 3:10 to Yuma (2007) (Marco Beltrami) with seven bonus tracks not on the Lionsgate soundtrack album.
  • Thunderbirds Are Go/Thunderbird 6 (Barry Gray) This contains the film recordings for both movies which weren't released alongside the movies (which came out respectively 1966 and 1968). The former's United Artists Records album contained some re-recorded music from the film, along with some themes from the TV series. The latter never got soundtrack release until MGM Music released a limited edition CD In 2004, possibly because Thunderbird 6 like its predecessor was a box office dud. Which is one area where Thunderbirds definitely matched the original...
  • Tremors (Ernest Troost/Robert Folk) - This 2-CD release to mark the film's 30th anniversary was issued as part of the Universal Pictures Film Music Classics Collection. The first disc features Troost's score; Disc 2 showcases Folk's additional music when it was decided parts of Troost's score had to be replaced.
  • Turbulence (Shirley Walker)
  • 21 Jump Street / 22 Jump Street (Mark Mothersbaugh) - Unlike the Beverly Hills Cop soundtracks, the label did manage release both scores as a 2-CD set.
  • Twister (Mark Mancina) This expands on the Atlantic Classics score album issued in 1996. Part of The Expanded Archival Collection.

  • Used Cars (Ernest Gold/Patrick Williams) - Featuring Gold's rejected score and the replacement by Patrick Williams, as Robert Zemeckis hadn't met Alan Silvestri at the time (1980).
  • Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (Paul Sawtell and Bert Shefter) Improved presentation of the Film Score Monthly release.
  • The Warriors (Barry DeVorzon) - With the entire 1979 A&M Records soundtrack album followed by DeVorzon's propulsive score.
  • Willard (Shirley Walker) from the 2003 version.
  • Wizards (Andrew Belling)
  • Wings (J.S. Zamecnik) When Paramount had the film restored, it was decided to add a new arrangement of Zamecnik's original score, played live to picture during the film's original release in the silent era.
