his latest news in January was quite specific that Universal gave green light:Topic: TIM TRUMAN ~ Update on Soundtrack CD Posted: 28 January 2009 at 1:22am Hello Friends ...Thank You ALL TT

Well, today marks 6 months, with no update on the project. Does anyone have a way to draw TT out of the studio, to give us an update on this project? He knows that the Vice fans are waiting, and I'm sure that he does not want to just leave everyone hanging, especially after the good news from 6 months ago??

My guess is that the project got the ax.The market for Vice music is just too small.

TT dropped the ball. He needed to have this release ready to hit the pipeline in August 2006, to capitalize on the MV hype created by the movie.

With all due respect, he's not even as marketable as JAN HAMMER (who has won numerous awards) or even has the name recognition, and Jan Hammer is not planning any more MIAMI VICE cds.

It´s not cheap putting out an album. It involves a lot of people and a lot of money. So naturally they would want the money spent to be earned again. I agree that the audience for a release like this is too small. That being said, I would love TT´s score for my collection. That´s why I believe the ideal solution would be for TT or Universal or whoever owns the rights for this work, to make it available for download on their website. That way die hard fans can get access to this treasure and they still make a buck or two. The idea being that you pay for your download, either by song or the entire album. This has been done before. Some artists even donate the money for charity.The record companies won´t even bother with a small scale project like this. You have got to be either U2 or the winner of American Idol or the new hot thing to be considered for an album. Because that´s where the sales and the money is in these times of piracy and decreacing cd sales. If you want this music you´ll have to hope for the download option that will minimize the cost and effort of publishing it.

it´s cheap and fast, because it would be no CD album which is costly (recording, sales costs) but a download via itunes or similar portals. TT has stored all his VICE master tapes in 88/89 on DAT, which means that he could directly upload it to a sales platform and start it off.This all said, I have no clue what takes so long after Universal obviously gave green light last winter.

I wish JAN HAMMER would let us download vice tracks like he hinted at in an interview about three years ago.

All true.Since the prime marketing opportunity has been missed, best idea now is to make it available online somehow. But I'll bet that Universal will never put their rubber stamp on that one. TT's complete silence on this one is deafening.

I agreeI think Tim said that the release would most likely be download only.So i see no reason why Universal are delaying it from release.

Obviously, his busy busy recording schedule between 2004 and 2010 has precluded him from off-loading a task that would take all of about 8 hours for a 1st year web designer to accomplish....

It was 2006 when I discovered Tim Truman's myspace music page and subsequently started a thread on it on .org. He then joined there but hasn't said anything for years, I've e-mailed a couple of times on myspace with no reply so yeah think everyone here has hit the nail on the head, rights issues or expense and it should've been released after the hype of the movie.

the rights issue has been solved according to TT´s post in january 2009. What happened ever since is a mystery to me. It can´t take long to upload DAT master tapes to itunes.

I would like to add one song from "Redemption in Blood" when Crockett visited the packing Celeste. Before when Ernesto (El Gato) enter and try to kill them. Background music is beautiful in this scene.I was looking for it everywhere but found nothing for two years. This is very personal for me and I have memories of a person :-)Below a link to this scene:

Redemption in BloodI would love to see the song that was played during the chase in the opening scene of Redemption in Blood - when Rico is running through the woods trying to get away from Sonny and his thugs. I love that song! Does anyone know the name of it? It is the instrumental song played right after "You never listen to me".I would LOVE that song to be included in the MV5 CD :)!

I Love Season 5

There's some demand for this soundtrack release, but not a vast demand. It's definitely enough to put it up on iTunes, and it would sell based on the "Miami Vice" brand name, alone.But regardless of piracy, there's no way there's not some money to be made if this release were put up on iTunes. Artists do download-only releases all the time on there. I do know for a fact, that getting stuff released on iTunes can be a bit of paperwork, but still shouldn't take more than a few months, even with rights tangling with a heavyweight like Universal.I think he's just abandoned it.The sad thing is, it was the last thing in the world of Vice that I wanted to discuss and deal with. It's the only "unfinished business" left with me as a fan of the series.
