    1 track down in digital format

    298742894728947 to go

    How about G.I. Joe Hasbro? Visionaires, M.A.S.K., Inhumanoids, etc. etc.

    I guess they don't want money or care about preserving the music for posterity.

    ...it's funny how much of that background music i never paid any specific attention while watching the original series, but upon hearing in isolation i recognise and anticipate each individual phrase, note, and nuance of intonation by heart...

    So much nostalgia! My family is very musical so the background soundtrack to the G1 cartoon is something that resonated with me even as a little kid, ESPECIALLY these right here. Great memories.

    It is sad that the upscaled footage used in this amv has Skywarp teleporting in Starscream's color scheme. Even the voice overs show this is incorrect.
    When they if/should/will remaster this release to Blu-ray, it should be fixed in all episodes. I think Kid Rhino or Shout Factory did this back on a corrected release, but still the upscaled version did catch the correction.

    Though I do like the video(s). Nice edits and vector animation transitions.

    Well, the music's one thing but my take aways are Starscream teleporting and MP44 being horribly inaccurate to the animation:

    This is just some part of the G1 soundtrack, overlaid over random clips from the G1 cartoon, right? Its basically the same as the myriad of other such fan-made videos, already clogging-up YouTube?

    Why did they bother?

    Wouldn't it make more sense to queue up episode clips where the actual tracks were originally used, in order to set a mood?

    I would say, since its actually coming from the source, the audio quality is miles better than I've ever heard.

    Didn't someone make a digitally remastered collection of original G1 songs (both seasons) , which were great quality, though?

    Yeah, I saw that video days before this article came up, interesting, really, this is the first time that Hasbro would put out a video with the soundtrack, heck, Earth Wars has music from the original series!

    They flubbed the upload.

    The new track cuts off in the beginning.

    And NO cd in sight.

    Sigh...

    Badly uploaded.

    Hey Hasbro, how about a CD in this century?

    And G.I. Joe music?

    Or wait 20 years and THEN release it as a CD, it'll be considered retro then.

    sigh...

    ...admittedly, lossless rips will always sound great through a high-quality D/A, but i do miss the tactile experience (and gorgeous sound) of my original kenwood single-disc player...
