And who would know whether Goldenberg is an easy sell or not, considering you seem to be the first person to offer his work for sale at all?

Granted, Busting may not appeal to the "typical Goldenberg crowd" as much, but then you get the additional interest from funk fans to make up for it I think. smile

One question: where on earth do you keep finding tapes for these UA scores? I thought most of their stuff was junked long ago, aside from what composers kept, but you mentioned that these tapes came from MGM...

They have quite a lot of assets over in the MGM vault. They had several things on Busting, a couple of which weren't usable, but happily they had these wonderful-sounding mono tapes, which were complete. A dealer told me he thought Goldenberg wouldn't sell, and that particular dealer's order reflected what he thought. I'm hoping for better. So far it's doing just fine.

Please please please release 'Play it again, Sam' and 'The last of Sheila' by Goldenberg! Those are two longtime grails for me...

I'm glad to hear it, Bruce, and I hope your success inspires other labels (particularly those with Universal connections) to explore Goldenberg's work further.

While you're poking around MGM's vaults, maybe you could see if they have music elements for Support Your Local Sheriff, my favorite Jeff Alexander score? That dealer might tell you Jeff Alexander doesn't sell, but the film itself has a lot of fans...probably including yourself since you have such a great sense of humor.

I'm really impressed by all the UA material you've managed to uncover, especially the original tracks for How to Murder Your Wife.

Holy cow! I really hope you swing one or both of these! I'll bet you 'Play it again, Sam' could sell more than a 1000 copies (the 'Bananas/Sex' cd sold quite briskly it seemed to me (count me in as one of the lucky few). Woody is still popular on a worldwide basis - I hope that if you do that one, you print up enough, it's truly a wonderful score. I'm wondering if 'Sheila' is long enough? Still, no matter. I would still buy it at 25 minutes or a double feature with anything. Waiting with credit card and baited breath smile

I am very excited for more Goldenberg score releases. It is odd someone thinks in the direction of a hard sell for his scores.

I will defin. be ordering a copy of this later in the week or thru SAE depending on stock.

I remember a friend saying as I was watching RHODA, that the theme music for the end credits was really tacky bad awful, I almost belted him across the room. I just think it was with the times. I still love the them.

I wonder how much score is heard in DUEL, always wanted a CD score for that, but even if if is 20-30 mins i would still grab that one.


** I missed out on Bananas and still regret it. I like any of the score Hamlisch did, my favorite being the disco style music he did for SEEMS LIKE OLD TIMES that is one of my grail scores. I remember loving the music as a kid now when I watch the DVD, it makes me want a CD all the more.

Ah, man, my wallet is getting killed lately. Love getting more stuff from this era that I never thought would see the light of day. If only we could have a BUSTING DVD now. This is a good cop buddy film in the vein of FREEBIE AND THE BEAN and a prototype for the many that would follow in the '80s.

Ditto. Revisited SEEMS recently on DVD and it made me awfully hungry for a soundtrack. There's still a wealth of great '70s (in this case 1980) scores. Another that comes to mind is OH, GOD! which has an infectious main theme.

A little slower than most of our CDs, but still moving along - we have about 275 left.

Not half bad at all.

From the sound samples I know I'd love it. I'm a sucker for any scores that feature funk jazz etc. So much for the guy who said it could be a hard sale. :-) Very Excited.

I hope this means more Billy Goldenberg is on the way! Well done, Bruce! YEAH!

Cool release. I watched the movie in my teens and a couple of things stood out - Robert Blake getting into an extremely manic fight while maintaining a cigarette between his lips (hilarious), and Goldenberg's score. Back then, I thought the chase cue was particularly groovy (titled Nailing Rizzo on the sample page). I loved the way the synth, at about 45 secs in, sustains the calling note while the orchestra modulates beneath. Still really cool. Jerry Goldsmith pulled off a similar effect right at the end of Klingon Battle from Star Trek TMP... albeit with a little less funk. wink

Good luck with the release.

Was able to place my order today thru Kritzerland's site. Very excited for this CD. Will be something to look forward to for sure. Love the cover art on the CD also.

Here is a poster link for those interested.

Ultra cool. Have fond memories of hearing that chase cue at the end of the film. Loved the movie much like Freebie and the Bean. Ah the good old days! The 70s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well done to K, shame it was mono though. Still can't pass on it.

The music samples sound "okay" to me -- though often I find I best like the music that didn't make it to the samples. I have ordered it just the same, as I intend to buy any and every Billy Goldenberg release in the hopes that by selling well they will prompt some enterprising label to start putting out collections of his TV music, as in Columbo and much more. Goldenberg had a distinctive, era-defining sound which cries out for release. Thanks for taking the leap, Bruce, and may there be many more just like it to savor in the hopefully near future.

It's always hard to figure out which six tracks to use for the samples - I try to give a good sampling of various styles of tracks - but there are some very cool tracks that are very Goldenbergian.
