My Dearest,

I'm a big fan of everything you've done, from the outer space record with Harry Revel, to the soundtrack of Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

And in between.

As a lifelong Monkees fan, I'm happy to have obtained all of the Missing Links volumes, DVD box sets, deluxe album reissues, etc., in addition to having the original LPs.

HOWEVER...

I am not the only Monkees fan who DEMANDS the incidental music from the TV programme on CD.

What are the odds?

All my admiration,

Lounge Laura

P.S. Please release "Music from Out of Space" also.

Stu has always given us good stuff. I thought RUN ANGEL RUN by TAMMY WYNETTE was one of the greatest country songs I have heard, such emotion. I also thought his theme song from BUCK ROGERS-79- was a great melodic emotional number.

Put me down for one of those.

I bought my mom The Monkees DVD box set. I didn't even know Stu had done the music. I was watching the pirates episode and loved the underscore. Had to check out who the composer was and was floored that it was one of my favourites: Stu Phillips.

Several years ago I e-mailed Stu Phillips about the "Music from Out of Space" album and he suggested that the masters are/were missing. If that's still the case, I would buy a CD mastered from a clean LP.

And yes, I love the Monkees underscore also. I always loved the main theme bumper that was played just after the first commercial break, at the start of each episode.

You rock, Onya Birri! We should get together for a Monkees/Beyond the Valley dance party!

this is about their lost pop songs, not incidental TV series music:

'Lost' material by Monkees star Micky Dolenz released
http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-33657729

"I just thought it was some fruitcake on the internet - but we followed his lead and he located the master tapes - and these songs came from the original master tapes in LA."

It is indeed, if you referring to the song "Suspension" by Kipp Lennon. But this song was composed by "Battlestar Galactica" & "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century" creator Glen A. Larson and not by Mr. Phillips. wink wink

Dear Lounge Laura,

I realize that your post was from two years ago, but in case I did not reply I am now.

When the Monkees was mixed on the dubbing stage, there were only three tracks available to record on. One was dedicated to the dialogue, one to wild lines, overdubs, and the songs. The last track was for sound effects and music. So there is not a music track only from the mix.

The background music was recorded at RCA studios and not at Screen Gems. The original tapes were at some point in time sent over to Screen Gems. When Rhino Records acquired the Monkees material some years ago, I tried desperately to get Rhino to release the background music in conjunction with my Monkees' LP of the songs that I recorded with the Golden Gate Strings. After many years all that could be found at Sony Pictures (where the Screen Gems shows ended up), were two episodes on tape amounting to about 17 minutes of music. Rhino decided against any release.

That's the story.

Sorry for the delayed answer.

Stu Phillips

Stu, while I might have you here, would you happen to have done any episodes in the second season of "Mrs. Columbo"? There's no full listing of composers onlie for the series and a couple episodes made me think you were the composer, though I didn't find any mention elsewhere.

Justin,

I never did any "Columbos." Mr. or Mrs. I think that Dick DeBenidictus might have done some episodes.

Thanks for the clarification.
