This is a comments thread about FSM CD: The Cincinnati Kid: Lalo Schifrin Film Scores, Vol. 1 (1964–1968)
 
 Posted:   Mar 11, 2010 - 4:38 PM   
 By:   Bob DiMucci   (Member)

Does this release cover every score Lalo ever did for MGM?

I guess I mean, will Vol. 2 feature more MGM music, or will Vol. 2 be his work for a different studio?


Some of Schifrin’s other MGM work includes:

Joy House [Les filins] (1965)
The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich [TV documentary] (1968)
The Mask of Sheba [TV movie] (1970)
Pretty Maids All In a Row (1971)
Bronk [TV movie] (1975)
Telefon (1977)
Chicago Story [TV movie] (1981)
Buddy Buddy (1981)
A Stranger Is Watching (1982)

There’s also some more of his Warner Bros. work that might be available to FSM, assuming that we haven’t already heard all that there is to hear on some of these titles that Schifrin has released on his Aleph label:

The Fox (1967)
Cool Hand Luke (1967)
Rage (1972)
Welcome Home, Johnny Bristol [TV movie] (1972)
Hunter [TV movie] (1973)
Enter the Dragon (1973)
St. Ives (1976)
The President’s Mistress [TV movie] (1978)
Boulevard Nights (1979)
When Time Ran Out (1980)
The Big Brawl [?] (1980)
Wait Until Dark [TV movie] (1982)
Victims [TV movie] (1982)
Fast-Walking (1982)
Spraggue [TV movie] (1984)

NOW AVAILABLE: THE CINCINNATI KID AND OTHER M-G-M LALO SCHIFRIN SCORES IN A FIVE CD SET!

Is there any reason that I should hold on to my copies of the Chapter III "Kelly's Heroes*/The Cincinnati Kid" or Aleph's "The Cincinnati Kid"?

*I have FSM's expanded "Kelly's Heroes".

Aleph's Cinci Kid is a re-recording and thus different. But our projects should replace the Chapter III CD.

And do not forget Schifrin's masterpiece: "Hell in the Pacific" (1968).
"Les Félins" was already released (Universal France/Aleph).


Universal-wise, I am surprised that you omit another 60's masterpiece of innovation: "Eye of the Cat" (1969).

...The man who got zotzed by Arthur Godfrey on the air!....


Um, pardon my ignorance but what's "zotzed" please?

Aaaargh!!! My credit cards are maxed and bills are due. Why this release now? The only thing worse for me is to release Family Plot. Oh boo-hoo

"...The man who got zotzed by Arthur Godfrey on the air!..."

Godfrey fired an unsuspecting La Rosa on live TV for "lack of humility." Actually La Rosa was hoping to stretch his talents beyond his appearances on the Godfrey show, and Godfrey, a supreme egotist, felt La Rosa wasn't being loyal to "the Family." It created quite a sensation back in the '50s.

Although I, also, was hoping for a late month release, I couldn't resist this set. Thanks, Lukas and team.

This series is a wonderful tribute to Lalo's music!
Thank you Lukas, for preserving and honoring his contributions to the art of film composing.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you choose for Vol. 2 & 3 already!

then if they release Schifrin scores from other studios then (in their last volume? in the series) they could perhaps include his score to Money Talks? For those who don`t know that was his first score to a Brett Ratner film and as we all know they later did the Rush Hour films.

Thank you Lucas and team for this release. There is no one else who scores like Schifrin. The latin influence gives his music depth and soul. Looking forward to receiving this one which I ordered right away just in case. smile

According to SAE's Facebook page, there's a new release coming from FSM on Monday. They say it's "a dog of a release...shh!". I wonder what it could be? Wolfen perhaps?

Or perhaps WHITE DOG by Morricone.

This is a great Schifrin collection and of course I'll order it.
Just imagine how many great, unreleased Schifrin-scores are out there (starting with WHO'S MINDING THE MINT ending with BRINGING DOWN THE HOUSE). It would be incredible to see more completely unreleased scores in the next volume(s).

However, thank you very much for this release!!

Lukas/FSM team: The Cincinnati Kid: Lalo package just arrived today and disc one RHINO is playing as I write this. I can see that for the immediate future, I will be like a dog rolling on the grass in bright sunshine. In other words: thanks again for the great releases. Not only do we get lots of mid-60's Lalo, we also get some material that is related to Man From U.N.C.L.E. as well. Thumbs up and thanks!

Very cool, but the world needs something more: A CD release of 'Murderer's Row'!
