Hope all half dozen of us George Duning fans (Yavar M., Ag^Janus, myself, Basil Wrathbone, Bill Finn & haineshisway) got this 2-CD set by now!

Have I missed any other FSM usernames who collect Duning music?



Yep, me.

If there's any Duning dance music, I'm generally all over it. I'll scoot over to check it out. This might have come out when I was re-using old dental floss to keep myself in hairpins. smile

I was thrilled to bits when it was released, ordered immediately, loved that series, love the music, love the CDs! Thanks again Lukas!

Ditto! Duning is an automatic buy for me, but the way things are going I don't expect to go broke anytime soon! (Too little of him out there, alas.) I love Duning's melodic sense and the textures of his dramatic underscoring, and am really happy to have the BRONSON set in my collection (where it's been since it came out). Really nice, sorry it didn't do better. Lots of fine things go unappreciated, unfortunately. But Lukas Kendall is not one of them, at least by me! So great to know that his influence and good work continue even after the demise of the CD series.

Like DUEL from Intrada, BRONSON's release gave/gives me hope that the truly landmark TV work of Billy Goldenberg and others from the 60s, 70s and beyond will begin to show up from our favorite labels.

June 25th, 2013: THEN CAME BRONSON

March 10th, 2015: BRONSON whizzed past consumer interest.

March 23rd, 2015: There goes BRONSON out of the Intrada catalogue.





It's a top release but not only for Duning but the other guest composers as well.
It's a marvelous set.
I listened to that set on the road during summer time on sunny mountains:
wonderful experience.

This is TR's favourite Gil Melle.

This was a real labor of love...I hope people enjoyed it...some lovely music.

Nope, It's cricket.

Agree, wonderful cd set.
The version below is also a superb cover by The Little Big Horns. Really rare single, don't ask me how the hell I managed to get a spare copy of it, but it's for sale if anyone's interested, (bit crackly) but doesn't jump.

"There must be too few Duning fans for such a great Golden Age film score as this to be unable to sell a thousand copies"... as typed by "davel" in the thread on "The World Of Suzie Wong".

Perusing through this thread and that one, I've noticed that there's at least 30 people for whom the music of George Duning would be an automatic (or almost automatic) purchase:

1. Ag^Janus
2. Anabel Boyer
3. Angelillo
4. Basil Wrathbone
5. Bill Finn
6. Bruce Kimmel
7. CindyLover
8. cody1949
9. Dana Wilcox
10. DavidinBerkeley
11. TheFamousEccles
12. George Komar
13. Graham Watt
14. John Archibald
15. JohnnyG
16. Josh Mitchell
17. Josh Swashbuckler
18. Lukas Kendall
19. manderley
20. (Member)
21. Niall from Ireland
22. Dr. Nigel Channing
23. rmos
24. RoryR
25. Sean Nethery
26. Sigerson Holmes
27. slint
28. Smitty
29. ToneRow
30. TonyJ
31. Yavar Moradi

No doubt there's more folks (some customers may not be FSM forum members ... plus some FSMers might not post comments, either), so everybody please feel free to join in and voice your support for George Duning soundtracks.

I'm curious if long-time sci-fi fans & Trekkers (such as Adam B. or Zap Brannigan or That Neil Guy) purchase non-Trek-related albums by composers who've worked on TOS.

¶ I'll order on the spot Duning's "Nightfall" (1957): a beautiful Film Noir score. You can pair it with Herrmann's "On Dangerous Ground" in terms of Noir situations: a couple on the run, the snowy mountain setting.

¶ Those who enjoy Duning's input on "Star Trek" (1966) will adore his work on "Mannix" (1967): same leaning, same Studio (Desilu), same era.
