iTunes features some of the original KPM library cues from Seasons 2 & 3! Look for - KPM Artists (feat. Syd Dale), Spider Sounds Vol.1 & 2 - for a total of 29 tracks.


I mentioned this on the post < New Spider Man CD by Ray Ellis > , but either hardly anyone is reading that post, or not too many people deem this significant enough to comment on. But come on, this is rather big, isn't it? It's not the Ellis music from season one (which I prefer, mind you), but it still is a grail for many, many people (including myself). My only problem is that I don't download music, as I prefer CDs. :-(

Also, for those coming in late, check out this very informative article:

As well, the Spidey Jazz yahoo group helped pave the way for these Season 2 & 3 tracks to see the light of day:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/spidey-jazz/


Is there anyone from that yahoo group that frequents our board? Perhaps Henry, or someone else from that group, could inform us of their research?

Paul Soles' website www.wallopinwebsnappers.com uses the background music on the website without dialogue from the series getting in the way so, maybe the team behind the website would know who to contact and which tracks are which?

Here are the links to iTunes:

Volume 1: http://tinyurl.com/68mww4

Volume 2: http://tinyurl.com/5bh9n7

The cue "Discothik" on volume 2 was used in the trailer for the original version of "The Producers". I just randomly clicked on it and discovered that. How cool is that?

Thanks for the info!

I've been looking for some of these cues for almost 20 years.

OH to have the seriesĀ“ music on CD would be beyond great.
The website is fun and very beautifully designed.
Thanks for the link.

Kind regards.

Thanks for posting this info. I really want the Ray Ellis stuff, but I'm interested in this, too.

It's nice to know you CAN get it.

I resurrected this thread, as the 70s Spidey thread seems to be have drifted off-topic. wink

Paul Ettinger, I just went through the Cronenberg Rapid thread, and since you know a lot about the KPM library & 60s Spidey music, are you a member of the Spidey Jazz Group? http://groups.yahoo.com/group/spidey-jazz/

BTW, for those interested, here's another thread from awhile ago: http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=23653&forumID=1&archive=1

Thanks Spiderich. I'm not a member there... yet.
I'm not sure the music replacement fears from the other thread (70's SPIDER-MAN) - or 2 other threads ,and the Spider-Jazz website are founded at this point. Sometimes the damaged music track is replaced with the same music, not different music. They could have just reused the appropriate KPM/APM cue (or Ellis cue) to replace the same cue that was on the deteriorated negative. There would be no change in the content of the show, only a change in audio quality.
That's how I took, or understood our Montreal informants post.
I've had vhs tapes of the show and regularly watched them for about 20 years and have not noticed any glaring or jarring musical alterations when watching the DVDs.

Why don't you email me at paul-ns at hotmail dot com.

Some fans might be interested in the soundtrack to "Black Dynamite": http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=63203&forumID=1&archive=0&pageID=1&r=836#bottom

I found a truckload of KPM albums on iTunes last night, before I saw this thread. I'm very happy, as I had $30 in gift cards to use and I was saving them for something amazing. I love this stuff. So much of this music was used in odd places in my TV history. There are tunes that backed my local station's Afternoon Movie intros.

I even spotted a track used on Dallas in the 4th season. They went to library music for the first half of that season, probably to make up the cost of keeping Larry Hagman on the series.

Thrilled with this find. :-)
