This version contains minor Fx but no dialog

There is a cut in the music (about one second) at the first track CD1 (at 30') on the orignal master. First original copies do contain this anomaly.

"The official East West release of 1492 suffered from the same handicapas Warner's official release of Blade Runner: a sever lack of musicpresent on screen but not reflected in the official score. Vangelishas rationalized this saying that he prefers to bring something fresh‚new to the commercial soundtrack. Be that as it may‚ these releasesusually "leave us hanging" and wishing for more music from the film.

The (fake) OWM tried to put together a more complete version of 1492 ontwo cds‚ but failed miserably to deliver something coherent since itwas riddled with horrible looping. Now‚ Andromeda‚ has gotten itshands on what seems like non-dialog copy of 1492 for dubbing and we canfinally listen to Vangelis' beautiful melodies with minor backgroundeffects and no looping.

In theory‚ the idea behind Andromeda's release is a very good one:mixing incidental tracks from the non-dialog source with the officialscore. (Sort of like the Esper Edition with Blade Runner). However‚unlike Esper Productions‚ Andromeda fails in its execution. Why? Tworeasons. The music of the discs is not chronologically ordered. Examples: The disc starts off with the cue of Columbus landing on theisland of Hispanola‚ something that happens halfway through the film. "Moxica and the Horse" which happens in the third act of the filmappears near the beginning of the disc. On disc two‚ we hear cues ofthe Spaniards liberation of Granada‚ something which occurs near thebeginning of the film. Why the Andromeda producers decided to do thisis beyond me.

Lastly‚ the mixing and/or blending of tracks is very clumsy. Insteadof having a nice coherent flow to the tracks‚ we have abrupt endingsand awkward transitions. In any case‚ it's certainly nice to have allthe 1492 music there on one release‚ it's just a shame that Andromedadidn't present it correctly when it had the chance."

Hello, is there somebody who could write a chronological order of track from this edition? I tried to do it, but a can't recognize too many of them in the film :( Maybe somebody already has done it, or could do? Best regards - Michel from Poland.
