I caught the last half hour of the Costner film the other night and it reminded me how good that music is - particularly in the Railway station shoot-out.

There was another UNTOUCHABLES TV series after the one with Robert Stack? Who knew?

SEASON 2:


Please note as I am not in a position to get the Dragon's Domain release of some scoring from the show, I will not be able to comment on if any of the cues mentioend below are on it.

This will be a slow-going experience, as with some shows I may skim episodes, or skim boring episodes, but this is worth watching. I'll do a few of these until the end of the week, at which point I'll probably pick up a new series for score reviews on Monday.



"Stir Crazy"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWAU8bLtER8

Highlights:
  • 6:18 in. Plucked strings, a wooden block and a sax' that make for a lightly whimsical piece. Over two minutes long. A montage cue, but with some FX in it.
  • 9:31 in.
  • 1909 in.
  • 25:50 in.
  • 27:03 in. Staccato clarinet and plucked strings.
  • 32:42 in. More staccato clarinet and plucked strings.
  • 35:47 in. Plucked double bass and staccato clarinet.
  • 38:15 in. I'm cheating, as I'm joining a cue already in progress. Not that there was anything wrong with the first half.
  • 39:31 in.
  • 42:03 in.

    That's nearly all of the episode score.



    "Railroaded"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqfh85opgPE

    Highlights:
  • 0:00 in.
  • 2:39 in.
  • 6:02 in.
  • 10:16 in. A jazzy cue.
  • 12:28 in.
  • 16:35 in.
  • 29:58 in.
  • 30:56 in.
  • 33:50 in.
  • 35:21 in.
  • 4247 in.

    SEASON 2:




    "The Crucibles"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9T5PFiBb7DA

    Highlights:
  • 1100 in.
  • 12:36 in.
  • 18:13 in.
  • 20:26 in.
  • 22:10 in.
  • 25:38 in. More of the love theme.
  • 2945 in.
  • 31:50 in.
  • 35:49 in. To the end of the episode.



    "Capone's Return"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4mEYUjBmOE

    Highlights:
  • 3:29 in. More of the love theme.
  • 9:37/10:03 in. Some jazz.
  • 13:47 in.
  • 14:30 in.
  • 17:20 in.
  • 19:00 in.
  • 30:04 in.
  • 32:03 in.
  • 35:42 in.
  • 3840 in.
  • 41:18 in.
  • 43:08 in.



    "CubaL Part 1"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPH0sA7uyUc

    Highlights:
  • 4:11 in.
  • 5:49 in.
  • 8:14 in.
  • 10:18 in.
  • 14:30/15:32/25:19 in.
  • 17:50 in. Short but nice.
  • 31:44 in.
  • 39:21 in.
  • 41:08 in.
  • 43:07 in.

    Again, that's the majority of the score. Happens a lot on this show, even if I don't always mention it.



    I don't think three 2CD volumes would cover all this good scoring.

    There was also that television film "The Return Of Eliot Ness" also starring Stack in which in investigated the death of a fellow federal agent.

    SEASON 2:




    "Cuba: Part 2"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5zsCvLSeyk

    Highlights:
  • 0:56 in.
  • 3:54 in.
  • 5:35 in.
  • 7:05 in.
  • 9:08 in.
  • 11:12 in.
  • 12:34 in.
  • 15:00 in.
  • 16:17 in.
  • 1938 in.
  • 21:34/22:33 in.
  • 27:17 in.
  • 30:50 in.
  • About 35:20 in.
  • 37:50 in.
  • 41:27 in.

    Plenty of ethnic flavoring. Joel did such a good job on these types of cues.
    Another episode score that should get a full release.

    Al: "If you live, you owe Al Capone a million bucks."



    "Radical Solution"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqGWqQiv7vc

    Highlights:

  • 19:06 in.
  • 24:53 in.
  • 29:09 in.

    Highlights:
  • 9:10 in.
  • 12:47 in.
  • 17:00 in.
  • 19:18 in.
  • 21:07 in.
  • 22:31 in.
  • 2520 in.
  • 31:31 in.
  • 35:00/35:33 in. I think I hear, in the second part, faint touches of "Patton" (given what we see on screen, it wouldn't surprise me if this was intentional).
  • 37:15 in.
  • 39:01 in.
  • 41:46 in.
  • 42:54



    "Attack on New York"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWiKDC5eaq0

    Highlights:
  • 4:54 in.
  • 9:50 in.

    SEASON 2:




    "Mind Games"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZoF_CgHhGo

    Highlights:
  • 0:00 in.
  • 1:45 in.
  • 10:37 in.
  • 30:57 in.
  • 34:04/37:02 in.
  • 39:04 in.
  • 43:12 in.



    "The Skin Trade"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9ckZltawwI

    Highlights:
  • 2:21 in.
  • 7:20 in.
  • 9:04 in.
  • 17:40 in.
  • 18:30/19:39 in. Parts of the cues share some similar ideas to a cue from "Star Trek: First Contact".
  • 24:58 in.
  • 29:25 in.
  • 36:49 in.
  • About 39:20 in.
  • 42:20 in.



    "Legacy"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HhrFc9iKS

    Highlights:
  • 2:49 in.
  • 9:30 in.
  • 13:16 in.
  • 17:54 in.
  • 19:30 in. And after the commercial break.
  • 24:15 in.
  • 29:54 in.
  • 36:49 in.
  • 43:00 in.



    "Only For You"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdOMOQvjEnQ

    Highlights:
  • 0:00 in. Kind of reminds me of Jerry's whimsical 1980's music.
  • 3:25 in.
  • 7:47 in.
  • 18:40 in.
  • 33:35 in.
  • 39:13 in.

    I wonder if any of those musicians at about 19:20 are real players and maybe worked on the scoring for the show.

    Al: "Don't try to snow me, kid, you'll get buried under the avalanche."



    "Stadt"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXjH3xxPZDU

    Highlights:
  • 4:44 in.
  • 12:28 in.
  • 20:37 in.
  • 29:08 in.
  • 32:23 in.
  • 42:35 in.

    There's not as much scoring in this episode, because of this terrible song sung poorly that keeps popping up all over the episode with varied lyrics. I suspect Joel did the instrumental backing. Unfortunately, the song would end and the music would transition into scoring sometimes. The credits say it's performed by "T Bone Burnett".

  • 12:10/15:02 in.
  • 24:40 in.
  • 29:16 in.
  • 32:44 in.
  • 35:22 in.
  • 40:07 in.

    One of the main characters is killed off.



    "The Last Gauntlet"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAiVIoYFQc4

    Highlights:
  • 5:59 in.
  • 7:35 in.
  • 13:43 in.
  • 26:00 in.
  • 29:00 in. There's a short lull.

    SEASON 2:




    "Family Ties"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjPTE_4fCnA

    Highlights:
  • 6:12 in.
  • 7:00 in.
  • 13:00 in.
  • 15:09 in.
  • 19:19 in.
  • 23:50 in. And after the commercial break.
  • 28:20 in.
  • 37:31 in.
  • 38:46 in.
  • 40:33 in.



    "The Fever"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcfNbMav4OE

    Highlights:
  • 3:47 in.
  • 5:45 in.
  • 7:08 in.
  • 10:42 in.
  • 14:49 in.
  • 20:16 in. I find myself humming the Capone theme after watching the episodes.
  • 26:10 in.
  • 30:58 in.
  • 32:42 in.
  • 35:25 in.
  • 37:36 in. And after the commercial break.
  • 40:25 in.



    "Voyeur"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvH2g4jf5wI

    Highlights:
  • 2:39 in.
  • 9:05 in.
  • 11:58 in.
  • 15:21 in.
  • 20:48 in.
  • 23:15 in.
  • 32:53 in. The timpani(?) hits have long lulls in them before the material builds up.
  • 41:25 in.



    "Omerta"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P34d_4uCf6o

    Highlights:
  • 0:00/2:51 in. Some western music for a flashback scene (geez, if you're going to do that, at least don't film it with street lights and light poles). There are more western cues mentioned below.
  • 5:15 in.
  • 10:08 in.
  • 10:56 in.
  • 15:49 in.
  • 24:07/25:07 in.
  • 27:52 in.
  • 31:26 in.
  • 36:16 in. And after the commercial break.

    It's rare to hear a bass harmonica in any score, let alone an episode of a TV series.

    Written by Loyal Truesdale -- stunt man with only one credit on IMDb. Some older TV series back in the 1990's and before, would give chances to people who never wrote and directed before. Just a few episodes ago, for example, the main season two cinematographer directed an episode.

    Al: "What are you talkin' about, you gonna bust him out? What the hell do you think this is, Frankie -- the movies or somethin'? What we're gonna do is we're get a lawyer for him, that's what we're gonna do."

    Finishing SEASON 2:




    "Apocalypse In Chicago"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gTzLgz_fEs

    Highlights:
  • 0:47 in.
  • 26:13 in.
  • 33:56 in.
  • 36:30 in.
  • 40:19 in.
  • 42:15 in.

    It sucks to have an episode of a show about Ness and Capone, that barely features either Ness or Capone.



    "Bury My Heart at Starved Rock"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnOWifFKwnw

    Highlights:
  • 0:00 in. Some "Indian"-flavored music.
  • 2:29 in.
  • 9:12 in. This one starts out with a little more "Indian"-flavored music.
  • 12:54 in.
  • 16:21 in.
  • 31:43 in. It's short, but I like this woodwinds cue.
  • 33:53 in.
  • 37:02 in.
  • 39:58 in.
  • 43:04 in.



    "Death and Taxes: Part 1"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuGo8yi6Yoo

    The two-part series finale. Supposedly the series was to continue, but one or mroe of the leads wanted to move on. Reading up on Capone online, there were still stories to tell, and of course his death cover.

    Highlights:
  • 7:44 in.
  • 10:11 in.
  • 14:57 in.
  • 18:22 in.
  • 24:44 in.
  • 27:38 in.
  • 29:00 in.
  • 32:05 in.
  • 41:00 in.



    "Death and Taxes: Part 2"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wywMXgAVKQ

    Highlights:
  • 6:40 in.
  • 7:16 in.
  • 13:34 in.
  • 20:29 in.
  • 23:04 in.
  • 24:14 in. And after the commercial break.
  • 32:55 in.
  • 35:50 in.
  • 38:00 in.
  • And the special end credits piece.

    Frankie: "Nuns used to teach us ... you get a black mark on your souls whenever you commit a sin ..... I don't know ... maybe we did too much; spilled too much blood. Maybe we're never gonna get our souls clean again. You ever think about that?
    Al: "Yeah, I think about it all the time, I just never thought you did."




    And so concludes the series.

    It's well worth checking out. Sadly, I read the DVD release years ago, was less than it should have been, plus it's the edited down syndicated versions (like the "ALF" DVD many years back). You may want to considering renting it; I know I wouldn't plop down money for edited syndication runs of any show.


    I read online the actor who played Capone, talked to people who actually knew him in real life, to create a more personal, honest and intimate portrayal of Capone. He doesn't look anything like the real life Capone, but I got to say, of all the Capone's I have seen, this is the face and voice I associate with the name Capone now. It's rather noticeable that the series focused more on the Capone character because of the better acting chops, and telling it focused less on Ness because of that actor's inferior acting skills.



    Anyway, I highly recommend the series and the scoring. If ever find more of the season one episodes, I'll double back to this thread to mention the scoring from those, too.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JArIYoWd32E

  • 13:46 in.
  • 20:04 in.
  • 24:20 in.

    Watching these episodes, I'm reminded how many themes the series had; I count six I can recall: a theme for Capone, some general theme I'm not sure for what, a theme for Ness, a love theme for Ness and his wife, a general-purpose theme heard in montages, and another theme I can't recall for what off hand.

    Finishing SEASON 1:




    "Atlantic City"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUerpt0aYkk

    Highlights:
  • 0:00 in.
  • 0:50 in.
  • 4:23 in.
  • 9:10 in.
  • 21:46 in.
  • 24:16 in. Short, but I like the way Joel turned the theme around from the usual way it would progress.
  • 27:30 in.
  • 35:40 in.
  • 42:25 in.

    Note: No score from this episode is on the 2CD set from Dragon's Domain Records.

    Al: "You were a pansy then, you're a pansy now," to Ness.



    EDIT: I was wrong, that was the final episode of the season. I am done with the show.

    Thanks for these posts Justin. They pushed me into the light to buy the TV series CD soundtrack. Really enjoying the discs. Great Dragon's Domain release.

    You're most welcome. I hope you've also checked out some of the other TV show threads I've done.

    Also, I corrected my post -- that was the final episode of season one.
