First one sounds like a western score to me. But both have me stumped.

First piece: Elmer Bernstein? A western? A nice piece of music.

huh...so we can just list as many names as possible instead of making an informed guess?

I've read that the free CD to the correct guesser is a used copy of...

Well if that is the free cd you get I will say the score is by LIBERACE[HA-HA]

Just returned back in town to read all the wrong guesses. I didn't think anyone would guess correctly, but I'll give some more clues down the line, some of which will probably be deliberately misleading.

Giving away freebies has nothing to do with whether or not I represent a composer or his estate. I only offer freebies when I'm fairly confident nobody will win them...

I wasn't refering to the free CD, per se, but rather that the composers whose music appears on the MMM label are all represented in some aspect by David Schecter.
Whoever the composer is from the first mystery sound clip above, I guess Mr. Schecter has access to this composer's tapes/acetates and/or the composer's estate.

It must be Heinz Roemheld!

It might be a composer who has never had any music on disc before.

Perhaps somebody like William Lava?

Dave, you know that by posting all those "No(s)" that you're goading some fool to post the 6000 composer names listed in the Soundtrackcollector database....
wink

Whatever it is, if it's from MMM it'll be first-class.....

The only people I goad are people who deserve goading because they're up to no goad! But none of the posters on this thread qualify for that category. And as for Mr. Corry's answer, you're just an apple-polisher hoping for comps!

Anyone with any kind of soundtrack knowledge would recognize it as the work of Joseph Mullendore.
Or someone like that.

I haven't a clue, but found both pieces intriguing. Then again, my faith in MMM is always such that I get whatever they offer us, familiar or otherwise. I will say that, in the second selection, I enjoyed a (purely coincidental) resemblance between a six-note motif and one in Skinner's SON OF FRANKENSTEIN.

in case anyone hasnt read thru the thread, Dan already pegged the 2nd sample by Guenther Kauer from "Atomic Brain."

Dave, why don't you just tell us what these "three, four, or five" may be... and period!
