Oh my GOD !
For those who are waiting for the release ogf the original Filmation soundtrack that was available back in the days only in France and in Argentina, your wait is finally served!
13Bis records will release on May the 14th the original soundtrack of Masters Of The Universe!
You can read the news on : http://www.13bisrecords.com
EDIT: Just to clarify things, everything was written in my first post. This is the release on CD of what was available on the agentinian audio cassette and also on the french vinyl disc back in the 80's! So it contains the same content. This is an official item, not a bootlegged one made of mp3 files.
Here is the track listing :
1. Masters of the Universe 2’50 (Haim Saban / Shuky Levy)
2. Tila's theme 1’25 (Haim Saban / Shuky Levy)
3. Orko's theme 1’52 (Haim Saban / Shuky Levy)
4. Sweet Dreams 1’55 (Haim Saban / Shuky Levy) (not the one by eurythmics )
5. Castle Grayskull 1’25 (Haim Saban / Shuky Levy)
6. The Royale familly 1’42 (Haim Saban / Shuky Levy)
7. Orko's crazy race 0’55 (Haim Saban / Shuky Levy)
8. Snake Mountain's theme 2’00 (Haim Saban / Shuky Levy)
9. Méditation 1’50 (Haim Saban / Shuky Levy)
10. Orko and the time whell machine 1’30 (Haim Saban / Shuky Levy)
11. The magic Planet 3’00 (Haim Saban / Shuky Levy)
12. A friend in need 16’00 (originale story from the TV episode)
13. Masters of the Universe (Alternative Version) 2’48 (Haim Saban / Shuky Levy)
14. Masters of the Universe (Spanish intro) 3’30 (Haim Saban / Shuky Levy)
So It countains the 12 bgms that we all know, the spanish introduction (because it has a song inside). The one name "12. Les bons amis 16’00 (Une histoire originale extraite de la série TV)" is the episode "A friend in need" that was available on the french vinyl disc.
The company 13 BIS RECORD is a serious compagny and will not try to release a bootleged disc.
This reminds me the time when the Filmation serie was first available on DVD only in France (2003). Everybody thought they were bootlegged DVDs but they were reals, legals and authentics DVD.
And here is the e-mail of some one working at 13 bis records : email@example.com . You can try to contact him for more news. He will forward to the team who's in charge of this project.
wow, i hope they release a lot more themes than just the classic ones from the 80's.
i want all snake mountain themes, the evergreen forest themes, ALL themes
Yeah I really hope they go all out and include everything from the show. The track listing should be huge.
Edit: Well it looks like it's just what I feared. Nowhere near a complete release. It looks like it's basically a rerelease of the old school cassette soundtrack.

Well, that sucks. I, however, don't have even the tape version so this would be welcome.
For the Honor, for the Glory, for the Power of GRAYSKULL!!!
This is overall great news, but damn that cover is ugly.
I propably skip this.. I want the ultimate theme collection, I already have these tracks and did I say that the cover is butt ugly.
YES! YES! YES!

I edited my 1st post and put more informations in it.
For the moment, I fear this is the only authentic and legal thing we can have.
I just wanted to share the information. I can't believe people complain about this release! Are you really happy of your crappy mp3? You have the chance to have the (short) soundtrack on CD, made by a professionnal and serious studio! And it is an official product, not a bootleg one! Just my opinion...
Good news but I wish they would put the She-Ra music on the disk as well.
PRO CLASSIC POP TOY DESIGN ELEMENTS BEING USED IN MOTUC TO COMPLEMENT THE FILMATION DESIGNS!!!!
I FULLY SUPPORT THE INCLUSION OF ILLUMINA IN MOTUC!!!!!
IF YOUR SICK OF WAITING FOR A LIGHT TO APPEAR AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, STRIDE DOWN THERE AND LIGHT THE BLOODY THING YOURSELF!!!!!!!
I'm excited! I don't have any of the Filmation music.

I edited my first post and gave you the adress of someone who's working at 13 bis records. Try to contact him (in english). It's the e-mail of the registrant for the domaine name so he will forward to the team who's in charge of this project.
What you see on DVD's is not how the digital masters truly look like as they have a very high bitrate thus lacking any pixelization (which was most noticeable during transformation sequence). While they have DVD resolution, they're definitively not poor. (Ask Busta Toons for more details about it)

Pffffffff who cares about the already released material? I have the LP in perfect condition, I don't care about a CD release of something I already have.
Let's email them to ask for a complete release... else this will have disappointing sales and it will destroy any chance of a proper release.
Μπιστ Μαν, ανόητε τριχομούρη!
I have these tracks but I will definitely buy this.

I have all these but still think this is great! Anytime we go from bootleg editions to official ones is a step in the right direction that could lead to more, like the other tracks everyone wants. And how is this not on the main page?

There is a rumor, that this CD could be sold at 6 euros! (attention , this is just a rumor, nothing official about the price has been ever mentionned officialy)
If the editor, couldn't sell this CD worldwide, I could help you to get it, as I live in France.
