Thanks for the additions, guys.

My list is not comprehensive, as mentioned earlier in this thread, so I appreciate input.



I understand that at least one of those composers listed might frequent this board and wonder if they find this thread to be in good taste, now that they've started being ticked off like some macabre musical tontine. I half expect Vincent Price or Robert Morley to resurrect themselves and start posting.

We are adding to the living list, not the dead list. Not in poor taste at all.

Here is a question that no one seems to have asked:

Do we have Proof that Mr. LaSalle is still with us?

The reason I ask is that he seems to have pretty much fallen off the radar since the mid-80s.

There have been other composers who have passed without getting noticed by IDMB or such.

Now if someone has been in touch with him (Perhaps my distant relation Charles Thaxton) that can put this idea to rest.

Well, if you don't get it without an explanation, you won't get it with one...

I guess I am slow. Thanks for trying to explain it to me.

I'm sorry - didn't intend to be so dismissive. It was just a feeling I had that if I were on the list with a load of people simply waiting for me to drop off my perch I mightn't be much amused. You may not feel the same way, which is fine - hence the sad smiley.

OK, and I'm sorry if my sarcastic reply.

All is well. smile

I am sometimes amazed when I find out certain artists are still alive that I's assumed were gone. Horace Silver was one such recent example. I viewed this thread as celebrating artists who are still with us, and maybe inspiring some folks to try to reach out to them and thank them. I can see that the opposite interpretation is also valid.

LaSalle was alive as of a year ago. But he had trouble seeing and hearing, so his wife was "in charge" of communications with him. They apparently have some of his music (recordings and/or scores), and not only don't they intend on letting anyone have access to them, but when he dies they're going to put them in an archive and not tell anyone where it is. Sounds like the family might have had some bad experiences in the music business and it soured them on Richard's legacy. Sad, but true. Not sure why one would put things in an archive and then not let anyone know the collection is there, and actually doubt that an archive would want a collection with that limitation placed on it.

Wow, that's bizarre. I have minimal connection to LaSalle, but one would think the creative output of an artist would be made available for the public to see and hear. Oh well...I guess they have their reasons.

It's interesting how these things go. Though it's a bit of a different case, the son of a long lived classical composer, Leo Ornstein, made his music scores available on IMSLP for all to freely enjoy.

i remember Run joe run tv show, and the music.

lasalle to me was a common name in 70s tv productions, and cropped up regularly.
he seemed to be able to copy that typical police show /tv movie thriller style established by goldsmith and Cacavas and others.

Exactly. Universities accept collections based on the research interests of their faculty and students, not only within their institutions but also beyond. Otherwise, they don't want to take up the real estate.

This seems like a bizarre request to me. They should either allow access or toss it in the recycle bin.

geez, why dont they say they'll store the recordings in barrels of vinegar at an unknown pickle factory...just to spite everyone. Then we can all have a sour experience. roll eyes
