I can’t remember who it was (maybe Jeff Bond) or what the CD was (maybe an U.N.C.L.E. release) when Harlan Ellison called to place an order.

I would LOVE to know which one he bought! (Even though he wrote for The Man From U.N.C.L.E., maybe he's a secret CHiPs fan...)

Vol. 6, No. 8: Soylent Green (Myrow)/Demon Seed (Fielding): I am very proud of this CD. Both scores had to be slightly cut down to fit on a single CD and while I later stopped making edits of this sort, this album became very listenable (as opposed to not) through some sculpting and pruning of the ambient soundscapes. Our friend Scott Bettencourt (of Film Score Friday) told me he waited 30 years to hear the electric violin source cue in Soylent Green, “Can I Do Something for You?” That’s the kind of obscure, heartfelt feedback—I am not kidding—that is the most fulfilling when you do these CDs. Demon Seed was fascinating for the discovery of Jerry Fielding’s unused electronic cues that he (under protest) had to replace with symphonic music (that he mostly reworked from Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia).

Great !

But...

How many left ?

Soylent Green / Demon Seed was my first FSM release. I bought it on a trip to London in The Cinema Store in 2006 and had no idea about the label or any of these releases. (Maybe if I had been more enterprising and looked up the website then, I wouldn't be flailing on ebay now for some rarer older releases! In the event it was Intrada's WarGames that finally pulled me into this Limited world and now I'm far poorer but have more great music!)

Anyway, I got that CD and was blown away by the presentation, particularly the notes. I got it because I loved the Main Title cue for Soylent Green, but now I'm equally glad to have Demon Seed, which I saw a while later. Two amazing, very different and unconventional scores in one outstanding package, and I highly recommend it!

You know, personally I wouldn't mind if you put up little anecdotes about the sold-out titles too (ie. Wild Rovers). I really enjoy reading your memories about each project.

Pleased to say I'm really enjoying the music to Where Eagles Dare. Deeply atmospheric score with that Goodwin combo of brass, strings and mesmeric drum rhythms. For years all I've had was the Geoff Love take on the main title, so Lukas, ta very much for the real McCoy in all it's dimensions. By the way, your inlay title for Where Eagles had me in fits. I'm sure Mr Tarantino would approve!

Very happy to see Ice Station Zebra was a hit, what a tremendous score this is, and a fabulous CD.


Love the anecdotes, especially the Terry Austin one. A few years back at Heroes Con, I told super duper artist Adam Hughes about the Star Trek CD's and some of the FSM Goldsmith, knowing he was a big score fan.

I always wondered if he was an FSM customer

"M-G-M’s 35mm mag almost always survived the years in terrific condition compared to the Fox archives where the mag is wowing and problematic at best."

That's for sure!

There are less than 99 copies of Checkmate/Rhythm in motion. Just bought one.

Checkmate is a great TV score and Shelly Manne group's version of the Checkmate score is also first rate. Shelly Manne was a great drummer who realized the jazz inherent in John Williams' music.

My credit was too slow on the draw to update in time. Dagnabit.
