Does Dino also control the music for "Serpico" and "Death Wish"?

A number of films produced by Dino DeLaurentiis during the 1970s were released in the U.S. by Paramount. Soundtracks for many have come from foreign sources, suggesting that the full tracks are not in Hollywood.

Waterloo (1970) – Nino Rota – CD on Legend
The Deserter (1971) – Piero Piccioni – CD on Legend
Serpico (1973) - Mikis Theodorakis - CD on DRG / FNAC / FM
Tough Guys (1974) – Issac Hayes – CD on Stax
Death Wish (1974) – Herbie Hancock – CD on Sony / One Way / Legend
Mandingo (1975) – Maurice Jarre – No release
Three Days of the Condor (1975) – Dave Grusin – CD on DRG / Legend / SLC
Lipstick (1976) – Michel Polnareff – CD on Sony (Austria)? / LP on Atlantic

Cool. FSM needs to release more horror! smile

P.S. How come the cover art's resolution is so low on this? Surely better material was available?

Sorry, but Barry's complete Kong is controlled by Dino DeLaurentiis, not Paramount. I asked!

Remember, Dino's Konk make everyone cry!

I only watched this film on DVD a few months ago. It was my second viewing after seeing it at the cinema, back when it was released. I was way under age, it was an X certificate, but we bunked in, like I did (had to) to be able to see things like ALIEN, The Exorcist, Eraserhead...
I think my older sister took me to see Amityville Horror, so the counter woman never batted an eye when she paid for me...that was cool.
Anyway...I really enjoyed the film, in a 'this is soooo crap, but it's well better than today's horror crap' way (that's nostalgia for ya).
I could not believe the music! Talk about up front and IN YOUR FACE!!!
It's getting to the point now where I am buying Silver Age FSM releases as much for the whole packaging and presentation as for the music! They seem such a labour of love.
It used to be just the composers I liked that I bought, but now it's a joy to discover something different/new.
This will be added to my next SAE order. Cheers guys! smile

Leonard Rosenman is one of my favorite composers, and I am looking forward to each release. I can't help but think of "Star Trek IV", when I hear "The Prophecy". Anybody else?

And I love the cover art.

Man oh man and it is only February. Thanks FSM for another wish fulfillment. So many delights -- so early in the year. Wow just wow. Have loved this score ever since opening night of the film when the music blasted full throttle from the Loews Astor Plaza's terrific sound system in Times Square. Can't wait to spin this one -- LOUD -- neighbors get ready...

Listening to these samples what immediately comes to mind is this is what Poltergeist would have been if Rosenman had scored it. Fantastic stuff.

This is a recording I've been hoping for for awhile.

Leonard Rosenman's "Prophecy".. Ain't it grand?

Bring on "Race With The Devil".

Here's a pretty good review of the film which in many ways I agree with.

Anyone who was old enough at the time to remember the TV ads for this absolutely MUST have had golden moments about the kid in the yellow sleeping bag. I was 17 at the time and we (my friends and I) had rolling-on-the-floor moments just talking about it. On this point the reviewer says:

"There is a clear turning point in the film. A family of campers settle down for the night , and are awakened by something growling. The daughter and father scream in terror as the meatloaf bear approaches, but its clearly too late for them. The young boy, wrapped up tight in his bright yellow sleeping bag, pulls himself to his feet and begins to hop around the campsite like a big (mutant) banana. The beast turns towards him and swats him into a rock where both the boy and sleeping bag explode into a flurry of feathers. As a kid, the scene was terrifying. As an adult, its an hilarious, off-kilter moment worthy of cheering. After this, the movie turns into a rubber-suit monster fest and never looks back."

Yeah, I'll second that. But, whatever the Rosenman, I'll buy it. It's a great time to be a fan of his music!

I usually wait to have 3 or more CDs in any given order.

For this one, the rule was suspended. I love Rosenman's aggressive atonality for PROPHECY; it's really the only thing about the rather ridiculous movie has going for it, in fact. I remember seeing this movie in the theater, and thinking it was only a step or two above THE NIGHT OF THE LEPUS. I wished for a soundtrack LP, which of course never materialized.

I'm waiting anxiously for the CD to arrive! (Though, in truth, with CROSS CREEK's 1500 copies still un-sold out, I think this one will be around a while.)

Shouldn't surprise Barry fans. Expanded Barry releases are too rare, whereas other composers get them by the minute!.

Can I ask those of you who haven't bought PROPHECY yet a favour? Don't buy it. You see, before I knew it was coming out, I'd just placed an order for HELLFIGHTERS (along with BLACK SUNDAY and THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN). And then my wife appeared with the rolling pin, telling me that I'd just spent my allowance (50 Euros every three months) until May. And now I'm a bit afraid that PROPHECY will sell out before then. So could you all hold off until I get my copy? Thanks! (Oh, and don't buy THE SPLIT either. That's another I'm planning on getting in May).
