I didn't get to mention my three favourite out-there Morricone scores. They are MASSACRE IN ROME, GIORDANO BRUNO and DEATH RIDES A HORSE. Not easy listens on their own but great in the films.

I was also going to give my Robert Mellin party-piece (just a few seconds), but I didn't spot a suitable opportunity.

See u next time edw.

Good choices les. Yeah me neither. Its probably a full zoom on its own. i think id probly go for State of grace, coz i always liked that 2-line concurrent almost-echo theme. 

I think another fave was Desert of tartars, which altho mostly organ, was totally perfect for the legion and sand dunes and solitude. i nearly opted for 122 rue de provence, which was an Lp i had n loved, but i think just edging them maybe Vergogna schifosi which is great edda n the choir.

Sorry guys and gals. I've gone and mucked up my scheduling again and won't be able to make it along tonight. I'm missing far too many of these! But finding ways to actually have fun in Manchester whilst staying within the guidelines is pretty tricky business, and should be taken advantage of when possible smile

Tonight's main talking point for me, would be making Mark jealous of my super big close up shot on the John Williams BluRay in the applause after Star Wars smile smile You'll just have to try and get by without that super interesting topic in the mix!

In today's discussion I mentioned a David Arnold "Gunbarrel" that had the separate elements between the orchestra and the synthesizers. I couldn't remember what CD that was on and it turns out it is the LLL Expanded THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH.

Good to be back home in NY. The Zoom meetings are great. Thanks to Stephen again. They only get better as we all get to know each other. I love the way someone will turn around and pick out a CD or LP from their collection to illustrate what the discussion is about. It’s a fast couple of hours, never boring. BTW, I have a big hole in my collection which was part of the discussion, Raise the Titanic. I ran to Amazon and ordered it!

I enjoy that aspect as well. I was introduced to Raise the Titanic by a very kind FSM member the first year I joined the board. It's is one of my favorite Barry scores along with The Last Valley.

The meetings I must admit have rekindled my interest in film music. It's always there but events of the last year (work, family illness, COVID) have pulled me in different directions and it's wonderful to focus some free time on it again.

Thank you Stephen and to everyone who makes it so delightful. I have a lot to learn.

Good topic, Bill. It caught us on the hop, but we all managed to come up with some fascinating choices, I think. I jotted quite a few down.

Thanks again, Stephen -- a highlight of the week.

Cheers les, rather impromptu, but interesting selection from everyone, and a range of years for the movies, 46 to current.

Yeah thanks Stephen. smile

Sorry I missed this one again - Sundays are out for me, at least for the time being. Anyway, without spilling private beans...Bill, what was your question? You might even want to start a thread on it (?)
