Great set, despite the clumsy title. Agree with Tonerow that Once a Thief is the real gem here.

Thanking Lukas again!!: I never 'got' Lalo Schifrin back in the day or even recently - although I thought he did a marvelous, under-rated job with the 'Rush Hour' movies.

Because I had a hankering for some swinging 60's music I decided to pick up the FSM 5-CD Lalo set. Through the years I've had - and got rid of - Lalo albums like 'The Liquidator', 'Sol Madrid' and 'Once a Thief', etc. Now I understand why I never liked those albums. They were comprised of most of the source music or re-recordings from those films with little or no of the dramatic underscore.

Lalo's dramatic underscores to 'Rhino', 'Venetian Affair', 'Once a Thief', etc. are a major revelation. He's up there with the greats as far as I'm concerned now. This is a wonderful set!

I haven't got around to listening to the set yet, I have a large listening back log to get through before I get around to it.

It is nice to have the Cincinnati Kid soundtrack, the re-recording wasn't really accurate to the original score.

Will there be a Volume 2 release (on another label)?

I don't know. There are a few more Lalo scores from that library that would be available but others that I had planned for a "Vol 2" I released separately—Pretty Maids All in a Row, Telefon.

I like that "I don't know" it gives us hope.


So WHAT are those "few more Lalo scores"?

Nice box set for sure. Not sure why I never posted. Oh well... All great records, and one of my favorites is the New Orleans Funeral March from the Cincy Kid, and with the visuals of the procession in the film, this is really timeless stuff.

But, if anyone has the set, I made a pdf of the relevant artifacts, etc. It's basically the same way I did the Ben Hur one. It's about 60-pages, and includes some graphics, movie posters, stills, etc. If anyone is interested, pop me a note at my fsm id on aol.

And main title by Tom Scott with the following players: Steve Gadd, Chuck Rainey, Ralph MacDonald, Richard Tee, Hugh MacCracken, Eric Gale, & Ray Parker Jr. Can't do much better than that amigos.

When did this set sell out?

I got mine the year it came out, but ... just curious because it's OOP on FSM's site...

It was officially achieved in 1971 but the Studio kept it on the shelf until 1973.
