I am very happy for Fielding fans getting this but never been big on the funk. Guess they were right when they said Black Bird is for Fielding for those who don't like Fielding wink

That's exactly the cue I was thinking of, Jim Phelps! Great to hear that again...

...and I have a very dim recollection of making those CDRs, Lukas...

My friends, if you check the ad copy, we wrote: "The uptempo main theme is the same mixed-meter jazz piece that he used as the theme to Matt Helm (1975 telefilm) and The Big Sleep (1978)."

I have been trying to release this soundtrack for 11 years!

Lukas



Sorry Lukas, in my haste I bypassed all that to get to the samples.
Im just glad I recognised a theme and it worked out I wasnt going mad!
somewhere about I have a recording off TV of that Matt Helm score. It was a good one.
Tony Franciosa. I recall seeing a feature-length pilot but according to IMdb it was a series.

Hunters sounds great though. will be ordering.

How many posts, though, before someone says "Josey Wales is the only Fielding I want" or "If it had been Josey Wales I wouldve bought it!"

Lukas, I’ve got a question for you. Is there any chance will ever get to see a release off:

Kolchack – The Night Stalker

McMillan and Wife

The Bionic Woman

The Bionic Woman

There have been three different CD releases from BIONIC WOMAN so far:

If what you want is still not included, perhaps you could specify what unreleased music from BIONIC WOMAN you want to see released?

The answer should be simple. The Bionic Woman scores by Fielding are completely unreleased! smile

I didn't recognize Laraine Stephens with short hair! She still looks great; like a prettier Elizabeth Montgomery.

I see she's a wino now:

I'm beginning to think Jerry Fielding was the James Horner of his day!!

It's yours! All you need to do is swear an oath of loyalty to the Union:

"...And I further swear that though I be murderous, verminous, lyin' Missouri scum!"

...the title music to Hunters Are For Killing is the most outrageously good "big city" music I've ever heard--neck and neck with The Taking of Pelham One Two Three for me. Fielding did some cues for shots of Chicago in the Kolchak: The Night Stalker series that have a little of the same vibe. SuPOIB.

Yes! The 8/4(?) time signature theme he used in KOLCHAK is outstanding (not to mention the "Diablero" theme).

It begins at 4:29---



Actually, the latter part of the KOLCHAK theme was Gil Melle's, adapted from a cue he did for the beginning of THE QUESTOR TAPES (it's right after the main titles, which are great on their own.)

I do love this opening, though -- that switch from the happy-go-lucky whistling theme to Melle's theme is one of the creepiest, most ominous seques I've seen. It immediately puts you on edge.

Jon, we were referring to Fielding's composition, which is heard beginning at the 4:29 mark in the youtube clip. It's used for those shots of Chicago. Give it a listen! smile

I think that Matt Helm youtube clip features the series theme by Morton Stevens. Fielding did the TV movie that was the pilot for the series.

Ah, okay -- it wasn't clear if you were referring to the time signature of the main titles, or the "city" music later on.

But I did watch the entire clip, and yeah, I remember that music very well -- it's a great piece! (And the underlying rhythm and strings still make it ominous before the more jazzy theme starts.) Bottom line is, I'd love to have more Fielding TV work available.

Which means, he conducted the score (he did the same for Goldsmith's "The Homecoming"). Stevens did what I feel was the best arrangement of "Gunsmoke"'s main title, which was used beginning with its 13th season. Stevens also functioned in the same capacity for Goldsmith's "Brotherhood Of The Bell". Could that be F.S.M.'s next release? Let's hope so!

With respect, being credited as Music Supervisor doesn't necessarily mean that Stevens conducted the music at all.

And if you look closely at the blurb (eg track listing) on the SAE website page for FSM's Hunters are for Killing CD, it does say 'Composed and conducted by Jerry Fielding'....
