I didn't find the sound bad in most places, except for a couple of times where I detected tape azimuth (or what sounded like it). And the fact that a film is made in France can only serve to make it better, in my experience! wink

Oh yes, agreed.
A lot of French films are in my home video library. I was referring to collectors who may know many details about any given composer's discography of American TV shows and movies, but may have never watched anything in a language other than English.

... and, right, the sound of JOY HOUSE isn't bad, just maybe not up to people's expectations.

I thought I'd resurrect this thread since it was Lalo Schifrin's 81st birthday.

Since starting the thread, through the recommendations - and in one case, generosity - of our members, I have picked up:

Joyhouse
Jericho
The Hellstrom Chronicle
Enter the Dragon expanded (I had only the LP)
THX-1138
and Magnum Force.

Of these, I've listened to Enter the Dragon, Hellstrom ahd Joyhouse the most. I've only spun Jericho once so far.

Thanks all! And Happy Birthday Lalo!

Well there are still a couple of diamonds missing , and yet need to be released ,just like:

Cogaans Bluff
Charlie Varrick
Presidents Analyst
Buddy Buddy

As for the score "Terror at London Bridge" mentioned above ...mmmh.. in my opinion a bit weak,for it sounds too 80 ies for me smile


Charlie Varrick. I'll second that.

Also like to add his music to Starsky and Hutch.

Here's another vote for Starsky and Hutch.

And although I do have the extended/remastered edition that had a limited release a few years back (when FSM were selling copies), it would be nice to see a new edition of Enter the Dragon, with a proper booklet and liner notes.

Escape to Athena is a nice little score (for an overlong and not particularly good film IMO) but who knows if the tapes for that survive. There was a Japanese album apparently, so maybe the tapes for that are somewhere. I always thought that Aleph might put that one out themselves, but no sign so far....

There's an awful lot more of Schifrin's music that I'd like to hear on CD, most of it his tv work (Mannix and M:I most obviously).

I don't believe anyone mentioned The Fourth Protocol which I would highly recommend.

Another vote here for Kelly's Heroes - a wide variety of themes, all enjoyable, and some high quality battlefield suspense. A delicious Morricone parody just puts the icing on the cake.

Hard to go wrong with any Lalo, though.

Simple:



For the obvious reason that it's a knock out of an opening (and a case where the theme is the only good thing about the whole production).
