Or perhaps Robert Farnon's marvelous score for "The Disappearance"? (Given that Kritzerland has put out a few scores for Twilight Time films, it wouldn't surprise me if this was represented, too.)

The aforementioned 80s score might be for his "The Long Hot Summer" TV movie? Or is Johnny Mandel finally making his Kritzerland debut with his score for another Cooper TV movie: "Christmas Eve"?

Yes, Farnon is the other composer and it's The Disappearance. Not that long, but it's really good. The third score is by Paul Glass and hasn't been mentioned yet.

Having enjoyed Lady in a Cage, I'll be pleased to hear more from Paul Glass.

While there are moment of dissonance in Overlord, mostly it's tonal in the Vaughn Williams style - stunningly beautiful themes - if you've heard the score to Bunny Lake you know how good a melodist Glass can be. The other Glass score is also mostly tonal and it's really kind of fun.

And best of all and rather astonishingly, Overlord is in glorious stereophonic sound. At one point we thought we were going to have to go from the up and down mono tape we had - but thankfully Paul had a complete set of tapes - and we got them transferred just in time, they literally were falling apart after we did the transfer - it's in perfect sound. Gorgeous.

So is the third score maybe Glass' music for the German-Canadian production Die Abzocker/The Hustle, starring Robert Wagner and Stephen McHattie?

I think that would be a great third score!

Just realized I haven't ordered the Victor Young set! It's great to see more of his music made available.

I thought the annoucement was today.

Bruce, you mean the tapes 'pinch-rollered' their last just after delivering a digital image? Must've been one hell of a white-knuckle ride! smile

It's like that a lot of times - a lot of tapes are on the verge and getting them transferred in the nick of time is always a happy experience.

We'll announce this at some point this week.

I suppose his Night Gallery stuff is off-limits because of Universal, even if he has tapes?

Received my Victor Young CD. Very enjoyable with marvelous music throughout. The sound for the "Appointment With Danger" is particularly good. Well worth the wait. September Affair and The Accused are quality scores too. A superb collection of great Victor Young music!
Only isolated disappointment is the relatively poor sound for the Prelude (and to a lesser extent the End Title) of "The Accused". Fortunately, the score's other tracks sound very good, but as the Prelude is the main orchestral presentation of the theme, it's a pity it has suffered in comparison to the rest. So for my listening, I've decided to prune the Prelude and program proceedings to start with Track 19 which is a nice cocktail lounge arrangement of the theme.

A tracklist question:

Track 7: Lonely Am I (Lilley) / Slow Bus to Memphis
Is that Joseph J. Lilley of White Christmas? I can't find anything on Google crediting him with a tune of that title.

I got the Victor Young CD yesterday and just played it. A fine CD, the music runs from suspense to romance. We don't have too much Young on CD so it's great to get another CD of his music.

Thanks Bruce, and I am looking forward to the future Victor Young CDs you have planned. smile

Intriguing track titles.

Track 9 "The Boner" is immediately followed by "Regas Follows Nun".

Enjoying the VICTOR YOUNG AT PARAMOUNT CD. Especially fond of THE ACCUSED and SEPTEMBER AFFAIR scores. Oh what he could do with a violin! Very beautiful, romantic music. Keep 'em coming !

I too noticed "The Boner" track. Maybe it meant something else in 1951? Hope so ...... smile

In any event, I'm enjoying the CD.

I noticed that about THE ACCUSED as well. I wonder if, possibly, the original music session masters no longer existed for these two cues and Mr. Bruce has lifted them from something close to an optical film print soundtrack to add completeness to the score.

Incidentally, Mr. Young must have felt his major theme for THE ACCUSED was pretty good, because he re-recorded it for one of his compilation LPs in the 1950s. It was so familiar when I heard it again on this Victor Young Kritzerland CD.

Informally, a stupid mistake is often referred to as "a boner."
