Stumped, eh? Me, too. smile

I love this composer. I love these scores. I am happy and listening to the master right now.


I have but one question. Is "the" in the title?


Now THIS is an excellent guess - I would have to say that "the" is definitely in the titles and I'll leave it at that.

Is it two scores on one cd? 1960s? Alex North?

Bruce, any chance you can do Nevada Smith? I think the LP was a rerecording. Do the master tapes still exist? It's a GREAT Alfred Newman score.

Nevada is not an option right now, but who knows what the future holds?

The new release is a two CD set - not Alex North - this is a composer who began in the Silver Age.

Roger, this is your first post in over five years, and you have nothing to say?

Our first Williams will come soon, but it's not this one.

I had a feeling you'd guess, but no, it's not a "period" film. smile

I had lots to say, but I got interrupted by a girl asking me to go buy chocolate chips so she could bake cookies, and rather than posting half a thought I guess I just posted a period. What more needs to be said?

And I can't believe it's 5 years, but true..I don't post here often. However, I was listening to Fear Strikes Out and then considering that Bruce released this Raksin album and I thought it was worth stepping up for a moment to say that I really appreciate these releases Bruce does. While well worth doing, they can also be tough sells, and I'm just glad Bruce is willing to take these risks and put this stuff out. I see lots of love and dedication in his efforts and sometimes we are just too quick to criticize and too slow to praise. So that is all. That and an extra.

Very sweet, Roger, and much appreciated. We knew Too Late Blues would be slow, but it's moving steadily and if we have it around for a couple of months, that's always okay. It's a fantastic score and I happen to really like the film a lot.

Lalo Schifrin?

Bruce replied this is late April to "The Pleasure of His Company" (Alfred Newman):

"Never fear, it's coming - we've just started work on it."


Could this be it? He's a favorite Kritzerland composer, from what I can tell.

Nice guess, except that Alfred Newman is a Golden Age composer. Bruce is talking about a true Silver Age composer.

John Barry ????

Not Lalo, not JB - American composer and, for my money, a brilliant one. The composer has appeared on a label called Kritzerland.

I love Mr. Shire but it's not him smile

What about Mancini?


Or is the composer actually still alive?
