I finally heard this early Scott score, thanks to someone uploading a copy of their old, great sounding LP.
It's a rollicking listen, but reminds me more of something by John Addison or Ron Goodwin than owt by John Scott I've heard before.
It's a bit too broad, disparate and comedic for me to thoroughly enjoy, but it was nice to hear Scott starting out.
I can't say I crave a CD issue of it. I would much prefer The Long Duel or England Made Me first.
Any fans of this one out there?

For years, decades, I assumed this was a Ron Goodwin score - mainly because of the catchy theme. VERY Ron. The movie was on TV the other day and I bothered to check the music credits because most of the rest of the score seemed oddly un-Goodwinesque. Very surprised it was a John Scott.

Mediocre movie, and, to be honest, the score just about does its duty (it misses quite a few comedic moments that Goodwin would have totally nailed). But the theme is lovely.

A Fine jolly melodic theme, otherwise average score and film.

I think that I read in another thread that Bruce Kimmel would love to re-issue ROCKET TO THE MOON onto CD.

The 1967 Polydor LP is one of the rarest soundtrack vinyls and is one of the few English-language releases to be included amongst listings of ultra-rare pressings (which are typically Italian)

Another great composer still going strong into his 80's.
It's just a pity his great talent is being under utilised these days.
Still, at least there are many unreleased scores by him that we have to look forward to hearing.

This is one that eluded me when I collected vinyl. Would love to have it on CD.
