Okay, so we had the other thread, and now we have this one.


So, go ahead and list the obscure film, TV, miniseries scores you've always wanted and hope would come out. As well as any that have come out and that you bought.


I'll start first and name just some of the obscure and forgotten stuff I'd love to own the scores to.

"Darker Than Amber"
A terrific, catchy, and memorable score by John Parker.

"My Life and Times"
A short-lived TV series which had some very nice music from Lee Holdridge (who also did the theme), Alf Clausen, and Don Davis (who did the last episode only). Yeah, I want that. Get over it.

"The Face on the Milk Carton"
Red alert! Obscure TV cable movie for all of you who can't believe we want stuff like this.
A touching score, with some drmatic undertones, thanks to Leonard Rosenman.

"The Defection of Simas Kudirka"
David Shire.

"Something Big"
Wonderful and interesting score by Marvin Hamlisch.

"Nowhere Man"
Ut-oh! Another short-lived TV series alert! Mark Snow did the score.

"A Wrinkle In Time"
Big score from Jeff Danna.


I know, this has been a frustrating thread for you to read, all those who can't believe what we want. ;-)

Brad Fiedel`s score to the TV-movie Hostage (starring Annette Bening). This is one of if not the best score he ever wrote...and it is to an obscure unknown TV-movie and I want it.

Joel Goldsmith`s Rattled and Man`s Best Friend, if Goldsmith Senior was great with apes then Junior was at his best with snakes and dogs.

John Scott`s Detonator II: Night Watch (starring Pierce Brosnan in his last movie before becoming Bond). Next to Van Damme`s Lionheart this is my favourite score by John Scott.

A Troll In Central Park- My jaw dropped when Intrada released this. Terrible film, but awesome score.
Wizards- Can't say it was a holy grail, but purchased this for nostalgia reasons.

You'll see me dancing one of those jigs some people dance if I ever get -

Prime Cut. This is probably on very few people's Schifrin list but mine. An odd mix of lounge music and some hard-charging action, I have no idea where the rights for this would even be (the DVD is a CBS release thru Paramount) but I want it, badly.

If Looks Could Kill. Yes, the Richard Grieco starring spy comedy. There's a suite of David Foster's score on the OST, but I'd dearly love a full release of this one.

Stakeout. Hoping that Intrada's love of Rubinstein and keys to the vault door at Disney will one day combine and bring me this.


You'd also have seen Billy Scream's music to Will Vinton's Claymation feature The Adventures of Mark Twain on this list, but by some miracle, the UK blu-ray release featured the bulk of the score as separate isolated suites so I'm somewhat sated on that one.

A few semi-obscure unreleased I'd love:

The Paperboy by Mario Grigorov
The Man Who Fell to Earth by Stomu Yamashta & VA
In the Cut by Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson
The Stepford Wives by Michael Small

Count me in on those two.

When I rented this movie - Troll In Central Park - for my kids years ago, they held their nose when I asked them if they liked it - no surprise there. When I bought the score awhile back, my daughter held her nose again. This time though, I strongly disagreed with her.

It proves one thing, the movie is still lousy, the score is still wonderful and my daughter is still a critic.

"Clue" (1985)

Well... it's kind of obscure anyway. Most people don't seem to even remember the music. But I wanted it at the time, and for years after that.

And now, I have it!!! (Yawn if you like.)

Stanley Myers' score to THE BOOST. It's almost like a 1950s noir score done in an 80s style if that makes sense. Even James Woods in the DVD audio commentary calls it beautiful. Not sure there's enough music for an entire CD release, but I'd happily see this paired with another Myers score. He's a bit under-represented on CD, I think.

A complete legal version of Michael Kamen's HIGHLANDER and a complete legal version of Vangelis' BLADE RUNNER—without any dialogue and all that new high-concept bullshit—and I would die happy.
