    TV Soundtracks 

     David Arnold 
  • Die Another Day - a 2-CD expansion without Madonna's song, by the way.
  • Godzilla (1998) - There was supposed to be a score album from Sony after Godzilla: The Album which contained two Arnold cues, but the score album was only available as a promo. La-La Land's 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 - with the complete score and extras over 2 CDs. Much longer than the Grammy-winning 1996 soundtrack album issued by RCA Victor.
  • 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 109m 29s.
  • The Stepford Wives - the 2004 version.
  • The World Is Not Enough - a 2-CD set with the full score and Scott Walker's "Only Myself to Blame" and a David Arnold demo of "The World Is Not Enough".
     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."
  • Somewhere in Time - Greatly expands on the 1980 MCA soundtrack album.
     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).
  • Stripes - an expanded and remastered edition for its 40th anniversary; there wasn't a soundtrack album in 1981 - Varèse Sarabande put out a CD Club release of music from the film in 2005.
  • 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(a branding to observe Warner Bros.' 90th anniversary).
  • 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 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 8m 44s suite available on Music for a Darkened Theatre - Film and Television Music Volume One
  • Taking Woodstock
  • The Unknown Known
     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 and 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 - this was the first legal release of the score.
  • Cabo Blanco - That Other Wiki describes this 1980 effort as Casablanca with the serial numbers filed off (and Charles Bronson). Belgium's Prometheus label first released this (twice, once in 1993 and then remastered in 2004 with the same content). This 2021 re-remastering includes more source music.
  • The Challenge - his music for a 1982 John Frankenheimer actioner revolving around two samurai swords; co-written by John Sayles with fight scenes choreographed by someone called "Steve Seagal" in the credits. So nothing to do with this. (Prometheus had the first crack at this score in 2000.)
  • Dennis the Menace - Expanded from the Big Screen Records release in 1993. Part of the Expanded Archival Collection.
  • The Detective/The Flim-Flam Man - This pairing comprises Goldsmith At 20th: Volume 2.
  • 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 greatly 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 I.Q. (1994) - Mood Whiplash-phobes, beware.(Quartet Records released Seconds on its own album in 2022.)
  • 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 including Shaun Cassidy's "A Star Beyond Time" (the vocal version of "Ilia's Theme"), and a remastered version of 1979's Columbia Records album.
    • If you missed this release, a 2-CD edition with the film score (CD 1 and the first two tracks of CD 2), additional music and the 1979 soundtrack album was issued in 2022 alongside the "Director's Edition" of the film).
  • 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 Stripper/S*P*Y*S - this comprises Goldsmith at 20th: Volume 3 and also includes the cue Goldsmith composed for Elvis Presley Western Flaming Star.
  • 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.
  • Tora! Tora! Tora! twice. - First with the same content as FSM's 2000 release; then in 2021 as part of Goldsmith At 20th Vol. 4, a 2-CD set paired with a new presentation of Ace Eli and Rodger of the Skies, itself previously issued by FSM, paired there with Goldsmith's work for Room 222 (the series theme and two scores).
  • Warning Shot twice. See TV Soundtracks for the second time.

     James Horner 
  • Braveheart - a 2-CD expansion of the Decca Records soundtrack.
  • Casper - a 2-CD expansion for its 25th anniversary; with Horner's full score and extras on CD 1; with the 1995 MCA Records soundtrack album on CD 2 in remastered form.

  • 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

  • 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 Classics Collection shortly after his 2020 passing; the release is dedicated to him.
