This week's suites.



"Brass"
Composer: Joe Sherman
https://youtube.com/watch?v=xU9cKuF7fSU

This was a failed feature-length pilot from the '80's that starred Carol O'Connor.

Sherman has contributed about a dozen scores in the last few years of "In the Heat of the Night" and obviously Carol must have been a fan or just liked the guy. Who knows.



"Dallas"
Composer: Jerrold Immel
https://archive.org/details/dlls-score-suite-1-jerrold-immel

Suite #1 covering must, if not all, the episodes he scored in season one.


Hey Justin,

Nice job on Immel's DALLAS suite - I really enjoyed it!:-)

What to expect from Monday's suites (which will be posted later in the day than usual).
And a note about the suites for August, afterwards.


The third and final suite covering "Korg: 70,000 B.C.".
The third and final suite (that I made) for "Jessie".
And a bonus third suite with score by: Basil Poledouris.



NOTE:

For May, June, and July, I covered suites main for westerns and cop shows (the heat is on, after all) for what I deem the Summer months for my part of the world. Now with Summer over, but it still being hot out there, for August expect: not really cops -- news, faux law, Angels, etc. And: not quite westerns. And some additional stuff. "Serpico" suites also start (about three a month to November, with none in October).

Some composer names you will see in August: Lalo Schifrin, Bill Conti, Jerrold Immel.

Hey Justin,

Thanks for the great job on MAJOR GLORY. It has always been a favorite of mine. I do appreciate all your efforts in putting this together for us to enjoy. This has some really fine brass work by Mort.

I think it would take a miracle for some label to release this score. In the meantime, the suite that you put together is just fantastic and I thank you once again!:-)


Indeed an excellent score, and instantly recognizable as being Morton. With hints to some of his FiveO writing.

A shame it has only six views so far. Come on guys and girls!

This week's suites -- four. Who loves ya, baby? ;-)



Fugitive Family
Composer: Morton Stevens
https://youtube.com/watch?v=sHM2VgROpJA

Suite #2 -- the final suite -- covering the TV movie.



"Kojak"
Composer: John Cacavas
https://youtube.com/watch?v=o8LrorAg-qw

Suite #1 (the only suite recorded so far) covering one of his best funky scores. There was some extra room, so I also included two cues from another episode. A small bit of the score was tracked inside the episode, so I was able to make part of a cue cleaner; you'll hear it.



Smash-Up on Internetstate 5
Composer: Bill Conti
https://youtube.com/watch?v=R2E2a2x7ngY

Summer is over (over here) and it's time to head up on home … via the interstate.



"Serpico"
Composer: Elmer Bernstein
https://youtube.com/watch?v=zIw7ZSZSef0

Suite #1 (of three or four) covering the feature-length pilot (aired as a TV movie called "The Deadly Game"). The pilot takes two suites.

So, some back story. Previously I had stated that the Morton Stevens score for the first episode of the old TV series "Destry" was the worst in-episode edit/track job I've ever encountered. And it still is. But I did say there was another one, and this is it. I'd say about half the score in the feature-length pilot is an edit and track job. Some cues not heard in full, I think.

Based upon cues heard in other track-job episodes, I'd say stuff not used was tracked into said episodes and even then still not heard in-full.

I also further think that Bernstein didn't really "score" the episode per se; I think select scenes were tailored, but aside from that I think he created cues to be edited and tracked as needed. And with that in mind, I don't think he "scored" the episode named below -- I think that's al tracked with cues that were created to be edited up and tracked. I think -- based upon the butchering in the pilot, that it was not a good experience for him and he bailed (or was not asked back).

It appears all copies of the pilot are slowed down and not at the correct speed. How do I know the pilot is at the wrong speed? Easy: cues from the pilot tracked into other episodes. The theme music in the episodes is at the correct speed and that means the episode is, too (Aside from sounding correct), so I sped up the pilot score and tried to match the correct speed. Some results may vary. I kept FX/SFX where needed to preserve the music. I had to butcher up some of it due to heavy dialogue. Sorry. This is the best we can get until some label releases the scoring from the show.

Aside from the pilot, Elmer also "scored" the episode "Every Man Must Pay His Dues". No others. The IMDb entry for "Country Boy" is wrong; somebody must have assumed that was the pilot and made an inaccurate submission (I tried to delete it, but to no avail).

What do you all think of the Bernstein work? Did you guys enjoy the Conti score (well, aside from henry ;-)?

Morton Stevens suites are always the first week of the month. I just posted one last week. So, three more this year. :-)


This week's suites.



"Branda Starr"
Composer: Lalo Schifrin
https://youtube.com/watch?v=Rzk-LmbdVjw

This was a failed 1976 pilot based on the old comic strip.

Starring Jill St. John as Brenda Starr, the pilot is a forgettable chore of a mess. It even manages to get Victor Bruono and squanders him.

There were only two good things about the pilot: the Schifrin score, and Jill St. John in a bikini and man alive -- hot hot hot.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PW8YSQxTtI

The bikini scene starts at: 31:53 in.
But I have to talk about it for a minute. Why? Because the scene has no reason to exist!

So, from commercial break she is packing to go to Brazil to investigate. Any normal series would cut to a plane taking off, flying, landing and her continuing her investigation, but here she's stopping to try on a bikini for no apparent reason. Then, while her assistant is talking to her, the pilot cuts back to Jill and now she's fully clothed in a suite. Wait a second … how in the...

So, best I can tell is the studio knew this was a bomb and this scene was created just for the commercial previews.



"Charlie's Angels"
Composer: Allyn Ferguson & Jack Elliott
https://archive.org/details/charlies-angels-score-suite-1

Suite #1 (of two) covering the feature-length pilot score.



Sangre En El Caribe
Composer: Gregorio Garcia Segura
https://youtube.com/watch?v=oNBgzZm9K9g

Suite #1 (of two) covering this unreleased foreign film score.

It's got the funky main title music, pizzicato string work, string pieces, punchy percussion and brass action material, and more.

I don't think this was strictly speaking a tailored score, but rather I think he created a bunch of pieces and they were edited up and moved around as needed. Indeed, I found tracking inside the film, which helped me make one cue a little better.

Thank you so much Justin for these brand new suites!

Especially the Lalo Schifrin BRENDA STAR for which I had nothing so far.

Can't wait for any further suite of CHARLIE'S ANGELS. Besides Mancini's iconic theme, Jack Elliot and Allyn Ferguson did great underscoring work, including great variatons on Mancini's theme.
