Limited Tron Soundtrack with the story of Tron attached.

The soundtrack was originally released on vinyl and cassette and had 18 tracks from the movie. This was released along with the movie in 1982 and was sold out in the mid 80's. For the 20th anniversary of the release of TRON, Disney decided to re-release the soundtrack along with the 20th Anniversary DVD. When Carlos was preparing the master tapes for the CD release, she discovered that the tapes had become unplayable, due to a flaw in the chemical makeup of the tape in which the tape would absorb moisture in the air and cause the tape not to play (or in some cases, not even rewind). Carlos' master tapes for her score of The Shining as well as several of her albums were also affected by this flaw. To fix this, Carlos literally baked the 1/2" tape reels in a dehydrator to remove moisture from the tape and make transfers from the master while they were temporarily playable.

Missing CuesEdit

For unknown reasons, there are currently two cues in the movie that haven't been released yet. These are the "Laser Bay Theme" and "I/O Tower Cue". Unofficial recordings of these track can be heard here on TRON Wiki; these recordings were taken from the movie's surround soundtrack, so the music contains ambient sound effects as well.

  • Laser Bay Music
  • IO Tower Cue

The Laser Bay Theme is basically the deleted light cycle music played by an orchestra. The I/O Tower Cue is an extended version of the song "Creation of Tron" with a couple of additional instruments.
