We continue our series of sheet music covers with the works of LESLIE BRICUSSE.

Also, Now that the sheet music has been unearthed for so many unusual film scores and songs, we have decided to bring in a professional pianist and a few vocalists to plow through the pile and play through a bunch of them.

AND WE WANT YOU TO PICK THE PLAYLIST!

Over the next few weeks look over the sheet music posted by Sheetmusicman and post to this thread http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=97750&forumID=1&archive=0
which titles you would like performed. Want to hear the vocal version of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE? Let us know. Want to hear the piano solo of RUNAWAY? Now's your chance.

We will be recording and filming as many pieces as we can and then post them on YouTube in the next month or so.

Here is a link to a checklist to find what is currently available to choose from listed by composer.

http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=96853&forumID=1&archive=0

This should be fun. Hope you enjoy.

We would appreciate any additions to sheet music by LESLIE BRICUSSE not included in this post.

Hi Sheetmusicman,
This may sound odd but I have a request. Is there any way to get a higher resolution copy of one the sheet music covers for DR. DOOLITTLE? The reason I am asking is the same art is also on the soundtrack album and one of the movie posters. I have been trying forever to find out who the artist is and the sheet music is the only source that has the artist's name. The artist signature is on the right side of the sheet music below the globe the four people are standing around.
The artist's signature was removed for the soundtrack album and the movie poster and replaced with 20th Century-Fox copyright info.
If it is not possiblt to get a higher resolution scan is it possible for someone to look at the signature and let me know who it is?

I have tried magnifying the scan you posted but it just gets blurred and pixelated and I can't read the signature.

I am sure you do not get requests like this all the time but I am desperate to find out who the artist is. Please help me.

I have copies of all the sheet music as well as a premiere 40x60 with the signature faintly visible, and I'll be damned I can't really make it out either. It seems to be Han... something. It's a start at least. Someone out there has to know who did the artwork.

I am confused. If sheetmusicman is the Author of this thread, why is the initial post from The Ga Ga Room? Shouldn't it be from sheetmusicman? Am I missing something? Just curious. smile

edwzoomom: Don't know what you show, but I show original posting was by sheetmusicman. Did you go back to the very beginning?

And so many great songs! How well I remember discovering "Stop The World I Want To Get Off" in 1963 as a young marine, and the Anthony Newley/Leslie Bricusse follow-up, "The Roar of the Greasepaint -- The Smell of the Crowd" had even more great songs. And I think that one of his most underrated shows was "Jekyll & Hyde," which he did with composer Frank Wildhorn -- I have all 3 versions on CD with (1) Colm Wilkinson, (2) Anthony Warlow, and (3) Robert Cuccioli. And of course the amazing Linda Eder in all three! I had the pleasure of watching her recording the delightful "Bring On The Men" for the second of those albums, and still think that the Broadway recording is fantastic -- and certainly one of Leslie Bricusse's most underrated achievements -- would LOVE for sheetmusicman and his crew to do a song from that show. Singer/actress Linda Eder has had a special connection with him through "J&H," and has recorded a number of his songs, such as "When I Look In Your Eyes" on her great "And So Much More" album. Frankly, I had forgotten that Bricusse supplied lyrics to 2 of John Barry's James Bond songs.

Do you have sheetmusicman on your ignore list? Then his post wouldn't show up.

Re: "Do you have sheetmusicman on your ignore list?" Forsooth! Have never put ANYONE on my ignore list! (And I do recognize that you were replying to edwzoomom and not me!)

I have copies of all the sheet music as well as a premiere 40x60 with the signature faintly visible, and I'll be damned I can't really make it out either. It seems to be Han... something. It's a start at least. Someone out there has to know who did the artwork.

You have a copy of the 40x60 poster with the signature? The 40x60 is the only poster from the movie I do not have a copy of or I would have figured out who the artist is long before now. I was very suprised when I saw sheetmusicman's scans and saw the signature.

I just need a better scan so I can get greater magnification. Any chance of you doing a hi-res scan of your sheet music? 600dpi would be great. Might even be able to get away with 300dpi.

Well, as I said, the signature is faintly there, almost as though is was on the original printing master and then someone tried to remove it, without being entirely successful. On a whim, I pulled out my roadshow three sheet and it was almost exactly the same -- faint remnants of the signature that was once there not completely obliterated. If there was a certain artist who did the artwork (which I think is great -- all the moreso when compared to the tepid and dull general release posters), then I can't understand why the studio went to all the trouble of trying to remove his signature from the work; there MUST be a story there (amid a film which gave birth to SO many off-the-wall "only in Hollywood" stories). But honestly, studying the sheet music myself, I don't think that enlarging would make the signature any the more readible -- it's kind of just scrawled there without any of the letters except the first being in any way decipherable. Sorry, I don't have the scan capacities. But someone out there HAS to know.... Paging all movie poster experts.... Help please.....

To all Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley fans, I just wanted to remind anyone in the Southern California area that hainesthisway (Bruce Kimmel) has devised and directed "PURE IMAGINATION: The Musical World of Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse," now at the Pacific Resident Theatre in Venice Calif, performed Thursday and Friday nights and a Sunday matinee. (1-310-822-8392). The box office doesn't open until 3 p.m. PST.

And how about some new sheetmusicman videos!!! I'm suffering from what my physician at Kaiser diagnosed as ASMMW -- Acute SMM Withdrawal!!!
