Dunno if I participated in this already, but (in no particular order except for Sinbad, which is absolutely #1)...

Sinbad the Sailor by Roy Webb -- IMO the best Sinbad score to the best Sinbad film; an absolute masterpiece. Technically a 5 minute suite was released on a Roy Webb compilation, but it barely scratches the surface of this rich and sweeping thematic orchestral adventure score.

Support Your Local Sheriff! by Jeff Alexander -- absolutely delightful and memorable score for one of my favorite films ever (a hilarious western comedy); the main theme gets put through a ton of variations both dramatic and comedic. Technically this has been released as a Blu-ray isolated score track by Twilight Time, but I think it deserves an actual album release and think the audio can be improved.

Night of the Hunter by Walter Schumann -- this masterpiece of a score (for a masterpiece of a film) has only been represented on a sort of storybook LP; it deserves a full music-only release sans spoken word.

Storia di una Donna (Story of a Woman) by John Williams -- this lovely obscure score by the maestro is similar in a way to my favorite single score of his (Jane Eyre, which itself deserves an expanded release but tapes are lost). Intrada found tapes and pursued a release but for some strange reason Williams himself has vetoed it, for now.

Black Patch by Jerry Goldsmith -- his very first feature film score, it also features some amazing music, including in my opinion one of the best main themes of his entire career.

Here's your response from May 13, 2017:

I'm gonna cheat.

Jerry Goldsmith:
1. BLACK PATCH
2. FACE OF A FUGITIVE
3. CRAWLSPACE
4. BABE (unused score)
5. PURSUIT

THE LONELY GUY would be a worthy inclusion but it had a couple cues released on LP so it's not exactly "unreleased" strictly speaking.

Non-Goldsmith:
1. SINBAD THE SAILOR - Roy Webb
2. STORY OF A WOMAN - John Williams
3. THE RARE BREED - John Williams
4. FIRECREEK - Alfred Newman
5. A DOUBLE LIFE - Miklos Rozsa

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHERIFF by Jeff Alexander used to be on that list, but since it got a complete isolated score track on Twilight Time's Blu-ray I guess it also isn't strictly "unreleased" any longer.

Yavar

P.S. I don't want to bump any of the above scores off, but I also desperately want COLUMBO like many others here, plus Joel McNeely's SECRET OF THE WINGS...oh, and both the Mancini and Goodwin scores to FRENZY, which I know still exist thanks to the DVD special features!

Not necessarily the top 5 all the time (other than #1 and #2), but probably the top 5 I'm most interested in this week...

1. The Star Wars prequels
2. Indiana Jones 1-3
3. Dune 1984
4. The Scorpion King (John Debney)
5. Zathura (John Debney) - Very underrated score IMO.

I think at this point of time it would really be the five missing Bonds from TMWTGG onwards - and any material that is salvageable from the first three movies and those that have already been expanded in the past.

The remaining Hitchcock scores would be another such project, but it seems as if all the pre-1960 material that is still extant has already been issued. That leaves us with an expanded "Torn Curtain" and "Frenzy", both of which would be nice, but not top priority.

But it wasn’t when I posted this list in 2017...
Good that at least one of my five was released (and with the also very good Lalo Schifrin score to The Concorde... Airport ‘79).
Another one that is supposedly comming soon is Psycho III.

Updated list:
- Fright Night Part II - Brad Fiedel (in a recent Cinematic Sound interview Fiedel mentioned that some new source material may have been found for the first score, hope something can be found on the second [and better] score)
- Psycho III - Carter Burwell (mentioned by Burwell as ‘about to be released’ as a special edition 2-Cd edition with the score + LP program)
- Dead Calm - Graeme Revell (supposedly lost)
- Batman & Robin - Elliot Goldenthal (difficult rights issues)
- King Kong (rejected) - Howard Shore

Why are ppl mentioning soundtracks previously released? I don't think Shores Kong score exists. Isn't that just a myth? Slipstream came out I own it.

I think the title could be easily misinterpreted as "top 5 most wanted expanded soundtracks". I myself didn't realize it just said "unreleased soundtracks" until just now.

COLOSSUS: THE FORBIN PROJECT by Michel Colombier.
THE INVADERS (1967-69 TV series) by Dominic Frontiere.

PROBE | SEARCH by Dominic Frontiere.
THE HAUNTING by Jerry Goldsmith -- the complete "nice tape for myself" referred to by ___

May 15, 2017 - 7:14 PM
By: Halloween_Jack (Member)


1) Ghost Story - Philippe Sarde (OK technically it was released, but it's long been out of print).
2) The Haunting - Humphrey Searle.
3) Psycho - Bernard Herrmann. Plenty of re-recordings & bootlegs over the decades, but so far - remarkably for such a popular & important film - not the real deal. The tracks taken from the laserdisc sound reasonable. With today's audio restoration software I'm sure it could sound far better still, even if taken from the stems (look at Intrada's House of Usher, that came out pretty well).
4) At the Earth's Core - Mike Vickers.
5) Highlander - Michael Kamen.

I can't finish.... sorry.

Why are ppl mentioning soundtracks previously released?

It's a sign of the time we're living in, in which good ol' OSTs almost don't exist in people's minds. They are listing wishes for expanded releases and 'film tracks' as if it's 'unreleased' - which of course isn't true. The only way to avoid this is for the topic starter to be extremely specific, pointing out that only completely unreleased scores qualify, no film tracks or expansions etc. Perhaps even in bold and large font.

The only titles I would personally 'allow' beyond completely unreleased titles, would be 'songtracks' that only have a single score track or two.
