.....In any event Bruce said that all four scores were never issued in any form before.....

Yes....he did JUST say that. But awhile back, before that clarification, he said.....

"None of the four scores involved have ever been released before".....


NOW he has said that all four scores were never issued in ANY FORM before. That should, of course, mean that none of these scores had ever been heard on the soundtrack that runs along the side of the 35mm print---another recorded FORM! smile smile smile smile

But it doesn't.

These record producers are devilishly clever at giving out clues. You have to read them very carefully and parse those words with equal care. It nearly always depends on what the meaning of IS is. smile smile



.....I sure wish Bruce could break through at WB and issue a few Steiner, Tiomkin, Waxman etc. But he certainly has given us some great Fox and Paramount golden age scores and more to come!.....

Yes, indeed he has. I kid Bruce a lot, but he has been absolutely wonderful in tracking down these older scores, investing his time and money in them, and then releasing them for us to enjoy.

Bruce is now a senior like many of us, and while he is no longer quite the hunky guest star stud smile of shows like The Partridge Family, Happy Days or Laverne and Shirley, he has made up for that by gaining even more wisdom and experience in this field of record producing over multi-decades now. His take on mixing or re-mixing the scores is impeccable, and the packaging of his releases is always very appealing.

While I, too, have often hoped he could expand around to the other companies for materials, there is still a lot of worthwhile and untapped material in the ones he does do business with at present. So I'm never worried about finding something to buy from him which interests me.

As the soundtrack business continues to shake out, we are very lucky to have Bruce doing what he does so well, and so thoughtfully.

I should probably drive the few blocks over to his house and leave roses on his doorstep, but my partner would probably find out and divorce me. smile So I'll just have to leave this bouquet of compliments and thanks on this thread for him instead.


Thank you for such sweet words. It's a tonic after reading another thread where the usual suspect is attempting to do the dirty work the usual suspect always does.

As for the golden age, how about Leigh Harline? There's still a handful of 50's Fox scores that have never seen the light of day. I'd love Friedhofer's White Feather one day, but it's nearly 60 years old, so I wouldn't be surprised if the tapes were no more.


I asked about Harline in among the composers I listed in my earlier post this morning.......

....."Could other composer possibilities be Skinner, Salter, Buttolph, Harline, Deutsch, Van Cleave, Baxter, Lionel Newman, Sawtell, Michelet, Faith, Mandel".....



Bruce said NO (and no Friedhofer).


Actually, I didn't notice Harline in the list, so Bruce rescinds his no. smile




Maybe: Harline, 23 Paces to Baker Street?

No Down Payment?

Teenage Rebel? smile

The Bottom of the Bottle?

The Best Things in Life are Free?

Nope. One of them has already been guessed - from the later 70s

Murder by Death or Heaven can wait or Mr. Billion

How about Las Vegas Story? Vincent Price on the cover would help sell some extra copies. Jane Russell even more!

Well, I love Mr. Price and Miss Russell but it's not them or that film.

"Heaven can wait" is one of Dave Grusin's best themes - looking forward to listening to the score.

It's VERY short smile But we have about thirteen minutes of extras and alternates that are great. And its companion score is stunning.

Victor Mature was in Las Vegas Story too, but since it's not that, how about another Victor Mature film that Harline scored... The Last Frontier.

So one of the silver age scores is Dave Grusin's Heaven can wait.

So the question is, is the silver age CD the one with the same composer or is it the golden age CD?

For now, I'll guess that the silver age CD is the one with two different composers:

Would the second score's composer be still alive? Is the composer american?

Is the second score from the 1970s?

The Silver Age has two scores by one composer - you know the composer so it's just what the other score is.
