Myers is a co-composer on THE GREEK TYCOON. I would like to know which parts of the score are his. The Main Tycoon Theme is credited to John Kongos (and is quite good), so I imagine Myers handled all the other music including the Love Themes of the Onassis and Jackie Characters and Jackie and Kennedy as well. Of course the names were changed in this film to protect the guilty.
I would love a release of THE GREEK TYCOON to be sure. I'd jump on it for sure.
I would think this is a Myers Cue. Love Theme of Liz and President Cassidy (In the Film)
I have to go very conventional here and pick THE DEER HUNTER. Overused or not, "Cavatina" is an iconic piece of music. Funny how it often causes DOUBLE misunderstandings -- first when people say it was COMPOSED by John Williams, and then when they think it's the STAR WARS John Williams.
Ha, yes, I have even seen one misattributtion where "Cavatina" was allegedly composed by John Williams in a performance that did not even feature (the other) John Williams.
My favorite soundtrack by Stanley Myers is by far THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES. I love that music, it's also part of what I may consider my "formative" soundtrack years.
Since ToneRow/ZardozSpeaks started this thread donkey's years ago, I have had the pleasure of viewing TAM LIN, the Roddy McDowall-directed film, and it is absolutely wonderful. The film itself isn't considered to be a masterpiece, but I love it. It's so "troubled-production looking" that it turns out to be a unique one-off, evoking a feel not unlike that of THE WICKER MAN or EYE OF THE DEVIL. Odd yes, and very compelling.

I second this. I wish the soundtrack release had that gorgeous End Credit version of the Cavatina because it was so beautifully presented there. Maybe someone will release an "expanded" score of it someday.
Someone years ago in this thread complained about the FSM Kaleidoscope and Hotel having mono tracks. Say what?
Don't know how I missed this thread back in the day but I love Myers. First discovered him with No Way to Treat a Lady, a brilliant score. Loved Kaleidoscope, then Raging Moon, I have a tape of The Witches, which I adore, and Night of the Following Day is a huge favorite.
The Martian Chronicles for me. Just rewatching the series now.
Also must agree with MusicUnite re House of Whipcord etc. I have said on this board before that a release of his scores for the films he did for Pete Walker would be fabulous. You could probably ge the music all on one CD.
