Beverly Hills, 90210 - Trade Mag Reports That Some Tunes Will Be Replaced

Posted by David Lambert

Jessica Wolf is reporting at the trade mag Home Media Retailing that the upcoming November 7th DVD release of Beverly Hills 90210 - The Complete 1st Season, along with spin-off Melrose Place on the same day, will each incur some music replacement:
    Fans of the two shows, both Aaron Spelling productions, have been eager for a DVD release since the TV DVD market exploded. But both of the popular 1990s series, especially "90210" featured notable musical hits from the era, and music clearance for DVD releases for shows such as this are fraught with costly negotiations.

    Like many other shows with strong pop-culture soundtracks, such as "Felicity," some music for the episodes included on these discs will be replaced with new tracks, according to a Paramount spokesperson.

    That was done to prevent more delays in getting the DVD sets out, according to Paramount. The studio hired one of Spelling's former music supervisors to help substitute some music.
Unfortunate, but it's good that we know this in advance, and it's good that the studio went back to the folks who were possibly involved in the original music selection to come up with suitable substitutions. Read the HMR story for more info. Our thanks to reader "Mark" for the heads-up about that article.
