Has anyone ever gotten a clean version of the slimer and the rgb theme. It plays on the DVD menu so I figure it shouldnt be too hard to do?

Hi all. I'm 28 years old and the Real Ghostbusters was a huge part of my childhood growing up. I love the score to the series and hearing the tracks always reminds me of the episode scenes.
I bought the DVD boxset when it came out a few years ago and made a set of mp3 rips of the scores for my own enjoyment a few years ago. I stumbled on to this website and thought I'd share. Some of these are better than others - I did my best to capture these from the DVDs. Some are spliced together as best possible to minimize the voices and sound effects. It's not perfect but I think it's pretty good.
I can't guarantee this is 100% exhaustive, but I know that when I was watching the DVDs for the first time I kept a running list of all the score pieces I heard, and tried to cover all of those when I started this project. You may not agree with all the names, but I had to call them something to keep them straight.
I'm not sure how this compares at all to what's already been posted, but maybe it has a few of the missing ones. I have about 100 tracks.
Anyway, here is a megaupload link to an mp3 rar. Let me know what you think!

that guy did an amazing job...ahh the limitations of midi guitar...I always said one day I'd redo some of them "live" with real guitar etc but alas never did....I need to post a video to youtube saying I don't check my youtube anymore, I still get people asking me "have you done this song etc" "can you send me a link to download" etc"...
I just think it's ridiculous that the official things have never been released. It's not like RGB was just some small thing that no one ever heard of.
Interesting you should mention this. I asked Screen Archives/Film Score Monthly a couple of days ago whether they had any plans to release soundtracks to 80s cartoons like RGB and TMNT. In my e-mail please note my emphasis on preservation:
Hello Screen Archives,
I'm not sure if you'd be able to help me with this question although I'm sure it's a question asked all the time. Since a young age I've always been a fan of 1980s cartoons like He-Man, TMNT, etc. I'm surprised at the lack of soundtracks released for all these cartoons as some of the music rivals quality-wise anything produced for live-action. So I was wondering do you know or are you aware of any attempts at the minute to release soundtracks for 80s cartoons like Real Ghostbusters, Dungeons & Dragons, Duck Tales, the Fred Wolf Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and so on? Of course I'm not talking about simple compilations featuring intro music as that can be easily listened to on You Tube. I'm talking complete soundtracks. Surely there must be a large request for this? Also I think you'll agree that older music for film/TV should be saved, restored and preserved for future generations. I would have thought the material still exists somewhere.
Any help and if not could you please direct me to the e-mail of someone else that could help.
We have no plans but maybe one of the other companies would visit these- Ed
Ho-hum. Some months ago I also asked whether they'd finally get around to releasing a Biggles score soundtrack. Not enough interest apparently...obviously there was enough interest in releasing a soundtrack to Emmanuelle 4 as that was announced a week later.

This is madness (insert Sparta) - a lot of people, including myself, grew up with RGB being our childhood.
By denying the release, is like them saying "f*** your childhood" and I'm not having it for a second. There must be a way of obtaining the music - there is no way that the recordings can be gone forever. Someone, somewhere, has all of the audio... even if it's not digital.
I've heard that there are (rare) cassette tapes with all the music on(?) Well people are always clearing out their lofts / garages / etc so maybe it's time to start watching eBay like a hawk?
