I *think* this is everything I have by Lalo Schifrin. It’s hard to know for sure because things are filed in many different places (LPs, CDs, organized by genre, etc). I want to know if there are any real gems that are not in my accumulation. I’m not looking for a laundry list of everything he’s done, but rather key titles that I’m missing:
Alfred Hitchcock Hour Volume 3 “Ape Shuffle” on a comp Betweeen Broadway and Hollywood (comp) Black Widow Bossa LP on Audio Fidelity Bossa + Strings LP on Verve Bullitt (all versions) The Cat (Jimmy Smith) Cincinnati Kid (LP and film versions) Cool Hand Luke (expanded) Dirty Harry Dirty Harry Anthology Earth II Enter the Dragon (expanded) The Fox French Riviera (Diz) Gillespiana (original, Diz) Gone with the Wave Harry in your Pocket The Hellstrom Chronicle Ins and Outs Jazz Suite on the Mass Texts (original, Paul Horn) Jericho Joy House Lalo = Brilliance The Liquidator (expanded) Magnum Force Man from UNCLE (2 volumes of TV scores plus superior LP by The Great Hugo Montenegro) Mannix LP version Marquis de Sade (LP version) Medical Center Mission Impossible 1 Mission Impossible 2 My Life in Music Box Set The New Continent (Diz) New Fantasy New Wave (Diz) Once a Thief (LP and film version) Reel Lalo Schifrin (comp) Rhino! Samba Para Dos (Bob Brookmeyer) Several Shades of Jade (Cal Tjader) Sol Madrid (LP and film version) Talkin’ Verve (comp) THX-1138 Venetian Affair Voyage of the Damned Whole Lalo Schifrin Goin’ On
Offhand, I think I need “Murderer’s Row” and “The Hellstrom Chronicles.” I probably want the second “Dirty Harry” film. Then there is the George Lucas early sci-fi soundtrack that I have avoided because of “Star Wars” associations.
LES FELINS / JOY HOUSE (1964 - a good companion piece to PRESSURE POINT)
ABOMINABLE (2006 monster music)
TELEFON (1977) [+ you get some unreleased Leonard Rosenman along with this]
THE HELLSTROM CHRONICLE, which you mention, is seconded by me. Also, you might want to check out FSM's CD of JERICHO TV scores - Lalo Schifrin scored the pilot episode in 1965 and it sounds very much like his M:I music from 1966.
Does that mean it has that nervous angular longhair sound that I so love?
Yes. It has a lot of low-end piano jabbing. It's got bongos, too. The opening wail is from an Ondes Martenot, I think, but the climax of LES FELINS has avant-garde vocals (sounding almost like Ligeti's choral works).
