Roger Feigerson writes:

"We have a trio of releases coming on Monday. One is a premiere release of the last movie score by this world-class composer -- a 70s horror film known by two names, but the second and its poster are are pure 70s exploitation at its best. In beautiful stereo from 1/2" masters.

The second features two obscure scores by a man who could easily go from jazz to big orchestral force and dissonance. One is a rejected score and the other is a documentary. Good luck with this one.

The third is a reissue of AIP goodness that went out of print in about a day but deserves a little more time on the market given its profile."

Would Friedhofer's Private Parts be considered a premiere since he recorded a suite from it years ago?

John Scott's OUTBACK/WAKE IN FRIGHT from 1971?

Never released before except a short suite in his "John Scott conducts his favorite film themes" album.

EDIT: Whoops! Missed the "last movie scored by..." thing...

Wondering if that second release is Schifrin's rejected Exorcist plus Rise & Fall of the Third Reich.

And is the AIP goodness House of Usher?

Please let the third one be Cliffhanger.

I'd be extremely happy if the AIP release is House of Usher as I missed out on that the first time, and it's such a great score.

Very intrigued by this one! In my heart of heart, I'm hoping it's a Robert Folk twofer - Maybe a rejected score I don't know about plus his gorgeous and stunning neo-classical achievement that is THE PLANETS documentary? The Intrada-produced 2 disc promo of his from the early 90's has an amazing 20 minute suite from that score and I just love it...

A stretch I know, but eh...

Or plus the Hellstrom Chronicle

Oh, good call. Schifrin fits the bill really well with those clues...

Or Die Sister, Die! (aka The Companion) which IMDB lists as his last project with a gloriously schlocky poster.

And before that, the documentary "A Walk In The Forest".

The only thing about Schifrin is I'd hardly call The Exorcist obscure.

I don't know why but the description of the composer took me straight to James Horner. If the rejected score were Streets of Fire (very obscure and supposedly 48 Hrs style jazz) and the documentary....something else (Horner has done some projects under the radar)...it might work.

In fact, [the always reliable] IMDB says Horner scored a 1985 documentary called In Her Own Time.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0158672/?ref_=nm_flmg_com_116

But then again I could be reaching hard for that one.

I think Schifrin is a far better guess than Horner on this one, based on Roger's description. I do agree that the Exorcist is probably too well known to be one of the titles. Has Schifrin got any other rejected scores that we know of?

Chris.

Another composer to consider for the rejected score/documentary is Michel Legrand. He did a score for Boom (John Barry ended up doing it) and scored Orson Welles' F for Fake documentary.

Dave Grusin has had some scores rejected but I don't know of any documentaries he has scored.

neither do I. Horner and jazz? Really?

and that "could" maybe means he no longer works...

Perhaps the horror score is God Told Me To AKA Demon by Frank Cordell? Although I have no idea what the posters look like.

Roger just posted that all the composers of the forthcoming albums are dead. So that leaves out Schifrin.

The second one is intriguing: Jazz to orchestral and dissonance. And dead.

Hmmm. Could be Mancini, Bernstein, Fielding, Les Baxter, maybe?

God told me to would be nice, great score. But FRANK CORDELL was only a fleeting film composer so that wouldn't connect with the info.
