If there's a Volume 4 in the future hopefully some of Bronislau Kaper's work for "The FBI" might finally make it to CD (that's about the only significant QM title left that isn't represented, apart perhaps from reissuing the Rugolo library music for "The Fugitive")


12 0' Clock High........?

I second your statement.


Dominic Frontiere's 12 O'Clock High is a landmark corpus, especially for The Outer Limits and The Invaders aficionados.

I see that set.

Love the 70's funkiness of the Main Theme. Never saw this show (Streets of San Fran) but I plan to check out the samples before I buy.

I skipped Volume 2 of the Quinn Martin set because I wanted the funkiness of the Volume 1.

I never watched any of these shows with the exception of a few episodes of Cannon and Barnaby Jones as a kid. I love the first volume of the set. Hopefully volume 3 is more of the same.

Any other suggestions for shows releases that have similar that similar Volume 1 funky 70's vibe?

--------------------------
Check out some of those FSM Jerry Fielding releases like Hunters Are For Killing, or The Supercops, which is coupled with some 70s/seriously funky/jive ass Oliver Nelson music too (ZigZag).

Hi, Spiderbite.

No doubt there can be more suggestions ... but before any of us fires away with lists, may we know your parameters?
You like 'funk', but it appears you were still a child during the 1970s and too young to see/remember most of TV shows from this era. Seems as though, also, you are not particularly interested in dramatic underscore without funkiness. And are you interested in funky film scores as well ... or only television soundtracks?

The main reason I ask is because I think the largest area of '70s funk on discs can be found on Italian soundtracks - specifically the 'Politzia' genre (but my impression is that you may not be at that level of exploration).

The Streets of San Francisco arrived on The Streets of Wales yesterday big grin

There are a lot of funky cues as well as some great jazz playing. Anyone who has listened to Pat Williams' big band album Threshold will see a lot of similarity here, though I still think it's the latter album which really shows what Williams was capable of.

Some cues do, as you might expect, float through one ear and out to the other without making much of an impression, but there's still much to enjoy and an excellent explanatory booklet from Jon Burlingame too.

Not as high a priority with me since I've never seen the series (which is why I didn't remember it instinctively).

At any rate, let's hope both shows get represented since Kaper did some fine work in the early episodes of "The FBI" and I would love to hear a clean version of the original "long" theme of the show from Season 1-2, 9 (a truncated version was used Seasons 3-8).

This has been a fun set to dive into this week and does function as a nice companion set to Vol. 1. There is less of the the R&B/funk element here and more straight, dramatic scoring but it's still mostly engaging. I find "Bitter Wine", "Act of Duty" and "One Last Shot" the least engaging as they are the most dramatic, but otherwise the scores featured here are enjoyable and often have good 70's era vibes. As usual with these multi-disc TV sets, I'll whittle it down to a "highlights album" for myself.

Yes, there is a lot more 'pure orchestral' scoring than you might think, and I'm really enjoying it. Good to note that it is not all mono either - the stereo tracks sound very good, especially given that the material is not far off 50 years old. I imagine there was some skilful restoration required!

I woulda thought the most dramatic scoring would have the most engaging music.

I can understand that line of thinking, it's probably that I was somewhat expecting more grooves, funk and R&B styles as heard throughout most of Volume 1.

This is a pretty cool release, and I don't mind the Main Theme popping up a couple times (someone sounded skeptical or just surprised about the repetition). I think it helps this is focused on one composer and essentially one series, as opposed to Vol.1 which I haven't played since it was released.

I guess it goes to show how this is all so subjective, as the QM Vol 1 set has been played endlessly since I got my copy, it's so entertaining and I love having the variety of composers working in the 70's groove-oriented styles.

I should have written "it helps me that this is focused on one composer and series." I have no regrets about Vol.1. We bought both releases so that's the important thing. wink

Yes, that's in line with my thinking too.

I received my CD of Streets of San Francisco last Thursday already. Great release. I waited decades for the original music from that show to be released.
And i was finally able to edit/mix a nice extended version of the main theme together, using musical cues from that CD, something i was also able to do with Vol. 1 (Cannon, Dan August), but pssst!.. smile

Wonder how this is selling?

Planning to have a copy of this in every car I own or will own until I die...

In my case, that'll probably be one (the one I have now).
