As always, we try to fulfill fan requests, and so for our BD/DVD release of MST3K The Movie, we asked Dave Alvin for help in locating any recording of his version of the MST3K theme song. He unearthed a 2″ tape, which we had baked and transferred. Sure enough, it contained a single 3 1/2 minute unmixed take (circled on the original engineering log sheet). We had it mixed at Chace Audio per Dave’s instructions, and it sounds incredible. By the time this all happened, however, our BD/DVD menus had been locked, so we couldn’t make it an official extra. Best we could do was to play the song in its entirety over the bonus menu. But it’s all there, and it’s every bit the rockin’ version of legend. Thanks, most of all, to Dave Alvin, who really came through for all of us.
Good enough for me!!
