Terminator 3 Recording Sessions

Terminator 3 Recording Sessions) - Front cover Terminator 3 Recording Sessions - Back cover

This unofficial soundtrack is a bootleg of the recording session. A bootleg is an unofficial release with, in this case, the music score for T3. Bootlegs are illegal, because they are released without the producer's or performer's permission. If you will find this bootleg yourself, be sure to get a copy, since it's extremely rare and the unreleased songs are awesome (and ofcourse it's a very nice addition to your Terminator collection).

Running time: about 140 minutes.

Note that the song "Terminator Tango" (cd 2 - song 17) is a longer version of the song "Terminator Tangle," which appears on the official soundtrack. This version has a minute of unreleased music in the middle of the song.
The song "Blonde Behind The Wheel" on the official soundtrack is the same song as the song "Collision Course" on the bootlegs. The song "Blonde Behind The Wheel" on the bootlegs is a song that was not on the official soundtrack. Did Marco Beltrami change the title for this song at the last minute?

Here are the differences between the normal versions and the alternate (and unused) songs.

CD 1

02. A Day In The Life (Alternate 1) (3:30)
In general, the strings and horns in this version play a higher tone than the normal version. It also misses the trembling sound (at position 00:50) after the slow intro. In the normal version, there's more time passing by before we start to hear the strings followed by the choir. In this version the strings are gone and it immediately starts with the choir.

03. A Day In The Life (Alternate 2) (3:32)
In general, the strings and horns in this version play a higher tone than the normal version. It also misses the trembling sound (at position 00:50) after the slow intro. In the normal version, there's more time passing by before we start to hear the strings followed by the choir. In this version the strings are gone and it immediately starts with the choir.
To me, both alternate version sound the same, but I have the feeling that these two alternate versions have some small differences.

05. The Deer Hunter (Alternate) (0:56)
The sound (of the build up of the tension) at position 00:25 is harder and has a bigger impact than the normal version. It's like they trimmed it down in the normal version, while in this alternate version, they play it out loud at that point. The tone is the same as in the normal version.

08. Music For Shopping (Source Cue 1) (2:45)
A happy classical song, played by only strings. Could indeed be a song to hear when you're shopping, but to me, it sounds more like some small orchestra would play.

09. Music For Shopping (Source Cue 2) (3:40)
A classical song, played by only the piano. This sounds more like a shopping cue than the first version.

10. Music For Shopping (Source Cue 3) (1:56)
A classical song, played by only the piano. This sounds more like a shopping cue than the first version.

15. Cool Willie (Alternate 1) (0:42)
The impact is trimmed down, and less instruments are used.

16. Cool Willie (Alternate 2) (0:42)
There's no impact at all, it just ends with a high tone that is quickly trimmed down. Again, less instruments are used.

17. Cool Willie (Alternate 3) (0:40)
Again, no impact, just a high tone that is trimmed down rapidly. The only small difference with the previous alternate version is that the volume of the (very small) impact starts earlier with tuning up. And again, less instruments are used.

18. Cool Willie (Alternate 4) (0:42)
This version uses a lower tone and other instruments play a tune while the sound is reaching the impact. More instruments jump by and just before the impact, they play a nervous sound. Then there's a small impact, bigger than the previous 2 alternate versions, but still nothing like the normal version (and alternate version 1). This version is the same version of the alternate Cool Willie on the Complete Soundtrack.

20. At The Hospital (Alternate) (0:44)
In the normal version, a flute plays a very short tune at 00:22. The alternate version misses this tune. I couldn't discover any more differences.

25. Blonde Behind The Wheel (Alternate) (3:28)
More variations of the volume that changes throughout the parts. At some parts, there are less tunes so the focus is more on the percussion. This version stops more suddenly than the normal version.

26. Destruction (Unused) (1:19)
An unused track, possibly meant for the crane chase. It has a very weird sound in the intro, but that is kind of cool.

29. Terminator Takes Over (Alternate) (2:29)
The weird sound in the intro misses a bass which is present in the normal version. It also misses the bass as we move towards the first "action" part of this song while the volume turns up. There's more variation with the volume in this alternate version. The short tunes played at position 01:10 miss the bass unlike the normal version. The drums that play at 1:32 in the normal version are gone. Then at 2:10 there are two short soft drums not followed by strings, while in the normal version we hear 1 hard drum with echo which is followed by strings. And, there's more variation of the volume.

31. Go See Cal (Alternate 1) (0:37)
The sound at 00:06 is different and harder. It sounds like a "bong." The big difference is that instead of the T3 theme that plays softly in the normal version, more of these "bonging" sounds are played. There's no soft T3 theme at all.

32. Go See Cal (Alternate 2) (0:34)
Same sound at 00:06 as the normal version, but this version also lacks the T3 theme. It has some other short tunes played.

34. TX Sees Cal (Alternate) (1:51)
More bass at 00:36. More sounds in the middle part. There are a few more tunes after 01:45, which are missing in the normal version.

37. SWAT Arrives (Alternate) (1:54)
Most notable is that the recognizable rhythm and percussion are left out for a huge part of the song. There's a different intro, most notable is the missing bass. After this part is a longer pause. Then those ticking cues are also completely gone.


CD 2

04. Dual Terminator (Alternate) (0:54)
That very weird "out of this world"- sound that can be heard in the normal version is completely gone in this version. Because of this, you can hear another nervous sound more clearly than in the normal version.

16. Flying Lessons (Alternate) (1:08)
A bit trimmed down than the normal version, but this one works more towards the impact (which is bigger because of this) with the help of turning up the volume little by little.

19. Down The Shaft (Alternate 1) (2:06)
At position 00:50, it sounds like less instruments are being used.

20. Down The Shaft (Alternate 2) (2:06)
At position 00:50, it sounds like less instruments are being used. Another small difference is that the soft tune, that plays from position 00:50 'til the rhythm instruments start playing again, fades out just before the rhythm instruments start, unlike the normal version.

21. Down The Shaft (Alternate 3) (2:07)
It misses the sounds in the intro, it has only the rhythm sound. Also, after this introduction, the sound is different. More volume, but also an instrument that plays a nervous tune through out the part. The sounds that start at position 00:50 are different. After this short part, there's an instrument that plays a tune while the choir-like part plays.

22. Down The Shaft (Alternate 4) (2:07)
It misses the sounds in the intro, it has only the rhythm sound. Also, after this introduction, the sound is different. More volume, but also an instrument that plays a nervous tune through out the part. The sounds that start at position 00:50 are different, and use less instruments than in the 3rd alternate version. After this short part, there's an instrument that plays a tune while the choir-like part plays. Thus this version is almost the same as alternate version 3.

23. Down The Shaft (Alternate 5) (2:07)
It misses the sounds in the intro, it has only the rhythm sound. Also, after this introduction, the sound is different. More volume, but also an instrument that plays a nervous tune through out the part. The sounds that start at position 00:50 are different, and use less instruments than in the 3rd alternate version. Sounds like they focus more on the vocal part in that short part. After this short part, there's an instrument that plays a tune while the choir-like part plays. Thus this version is almost the same as alternate version 3.

25. Radio (Alternate 1) (2:31)
The emotional tune that starts just after 1:00 is another instrument than in the normal version. In this version, that instrument has a lower tone (a cello instead of the violin?).

26. Radio (Alternate 2) (2:30)
The emotional tune that starts just after 1:00 is another "instrument" than in the normal version. In this version, it's a woman's voice. Then, at 1:41, the violins take over again.
