Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato (Miyagawa, 1978)

The First Television Series
    In 1974, the animated television series "Space Battleship Yamato" (Japanese: 宇宙戦艦ヤマト) premiered in Japan.  Although not an immediate hit, it later became a massive pop culture phenomenon, and a few years later was dubbed in English and programmed in the United States as "Star Blazers" (where it accumulated many more fans, including myself).

The Movies
     The success of the first film (compiled from key episodes from the first series) was followed by an even more popular, completely original sequel "Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato" (さらば宇宙戦艦ヤマト 愛の戦士たち, literally "Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato: Warriors of Love"), also called "Arrivederci Yamato".  The music for "Farewell" was again handled by the resourceful Hiroshi Miyagawa.

     In this story, the Yamato journeys to planet Telezart to receive a message from an antimatter "angel" named Teresa, warning of the evil White Comet Empire (Desslar, returning from the first film/TV series, also appears as a secondary adversary for the Yamato).  The White Comet eventually reaches Earth and all of Earth's forces are decimated.  The Yamato can only win by an act of self-sacrifice.   

     After the massive popularity of this film, a second Space Battleship Yamato series was produced, essentially telescoping-out the narrative from the "Farewell" movie, and adding a new, less final ending.  Much more about this series and the various score releases for this film/TV series can be found in my previous post on Space Battleship Yamato.  More about the music from the 2nd Series can be found here.

Symphonic Suite Recordings
    In between the first and second movies, several Yamato-related LPs were released, but the two most important would have to be the two "Symphonic" albums, consisting of new arrangements and recordings of original music cues used in the first and second film.  The first "Yamato Symphonic Suite" is especially rewarding: the original TV music cues were recorded in mono, but this recording renders them in glorious hi-fi stereo.  My analysis of "Yamato Symphonic Suite" appeared in the earlier post.  Below is a rundown of the second symphonic suite album, devoted to the then soon-to-be-released "Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato".  This recording was recently released as Sound Almanac 1978-2.

Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato Score Releases
    About 53 minutes of original music was recorded for the "Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato" movie.  Another 45 minutes in the film consisted of retracked selections from the two aforementioned "symphonic suite" albums, as well as from the first TV series' original music cues (in mono).

     In 2000, a 2 CD "complete score" to "Farewell" was released as Eternal Edition 2/3.  This release is basically an "isolated score", and, aside from the ending song,  has every bit of original and retracked music in chronological sequence (even repeated cues).  The only problem with this was that many cues were grouped together, which made it hard to find specific cues, or to program out repeated/reused tracks.  For the 2012-2014 Sound Almanac CDs, all of the purely original cues for the "Farewell" film score were individually indexed on a single CD (Sound Almanac 1978-3).  The retracked cues were not repeated, but can be found on Sound Almanac releases of the three albums previously mentioned.  The table below identifies how all of these cues were organized and retracked, along with descriptions of their related film sequences and thematic content.  It's pretty wonderful to have all of these cues as individual tracks, but I have to admit, I still quite like Eternal Edition 2/3, just because it works as a "complete score" listening experience.

     The table below is really less complicated than it first looks, but in order to save SOME space I tried to use abbreviations:
     Reused tracks are in light colors and have their titles in parentheses with the original title.  The main thing here is the cue-by-cue notes to the tracks from Sound Almanac 1978, Vol. 3: Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato Score.
