Oh, you're right about that! Sadly, Part I is not up, but the score to Part 2 was fantastic. I'm actually finishing up season ten right now.

That’s a bummer! NINE DRAGONS was originally the two-hour season opener and the entire score needs to be heard to be fully engulfed in its excellence. Mort was such a genius!

SEASON 9:

I like the repeating two chord lower octave brass under the them for this new arrangement, but other new parts don't work (in my opinion).

    Stevens was clearly inspired by at least the second part (I wish I could have heard the first one!) and the effort and creativity shows.

    That's a extraordinary amount of writing effort -- far beyond what the episode even needed, but it's something for us scores fans. I'm almost tempted to say this episode score should have at an Emmy nomination.

    Hey Justin,

    You will find that the Cacavas scores for 5-O do not cut it. For some reason, he was not able to make his mark with this series, like the usual suspects could.

    The only score that was somewhat interesting was his eleventh season score, THE YEAR OF THE HORSE.

    Justin - Sorry to hear you weren't able to view/hear Mort's score for S9's "The Bells Toll at Noon," definitely among my top ten of all "5-O" scores.

    I think it strange that neither Mort Stevens nor Bruce Broughton had involvement with the series in S11. I'm guessing that during this season (1978-79) Mort had his hands full with TV movies, the mini series "Backstairs at the White House" (not to mention "Wheels" earlier in 1978), Bruce with "Quincy, M.E," most of S3 of "How the West Was Won," and Jerry Immel with S2 of "Dallas." At least the producers of S11 had the good sense to bring in Dick DeBenedictis, whose three 5-0 scores are among the best composed for those final seasons (why Don Ray, the series music supervisor, didn't score any S11 shows is a mystery). As far as John Cacavas is concerned, the one score of his I really enjoyed, "For Old Time's Sake," was composed in S12, when he (ironically) was assigned the one show.

    In this episode, one of the show's main ensemble cast members is killed off. Under normal circumstances in a show that is not science fiction and/or fantasy, you'd never see the character again, but in this case, Hollywood laziness will strike later on in this thread...

    For the guys here: 28:15 in. You're welcome.





    Oh I hate this shit. Yet another episode where the load was mis-titled, so I wasted my time covering an episode with no credited composer again. Well, anyway, I don't want to throw it away after having spent time on it, so here are the track-job highlights.

    (NtM: 38:19)

    I'm starting to dread seeing Cacavas' name on the show, but here it worked because this was more familiar territory. See my thread for "The Dirty Dozen: The Series", where he scored one episode (well worth looking into beyond that for the kick-ass scoring of Doug Timm).

    By the way, if you've never met a real racist in real life, as opposed to seeing portrayals in film and television or the documentary here and there, yeah, they do talk like this. Met this guy a couple years ago when he helped me with my car. He started talking to me but never said anything wrong, until I made the mistake of telling him where I was going to exercise and hang out. He showed up and slowly ever a period of weeks, he unfolded his deep racism. He said things like: white girls who dated black men, were betraying their race. If a white girl had a baby with a black man, it was a "mud baby". They have tiny monkey brains and can't comprehend things, etc., etc., etc. And he was secretly sneaking in this racist newsletter into a Little Free Library; I would wait for him to be gone, take that shit out, rip it to pieces, and shitcan it.

    Duke: "Does surprise you to know that ever goose-stepping one of them is a failure."
    Steve: "Not a it, Drew, not a bit. The losers and the dimwits are usually the ones who end up wearing Swastikas or Ku Klux Klan hoods."

    Dano: "You're not Nazis, you're Nutzis."

    Steve: "This is still America, thank God."

    "Is it really over?"
    Steve: "Yeah, for the moment, Bobby. There'll always be a fanatic somewhere; a Nazi, or a Communist, or an anarchist."

  • 37:36 in. A little over four minutes long, with light FX and only a little humming from a character.^
  • 43:15 in.^(parts/45:18)

    Such an unusual contribution from Cacavas here. It's certainly nothing unique on it's own and probably owes inspiration to multiple sources including Morricone, but for the show it is. Almost tempted to say it should have gotten an Emmy nomination. I cited probably 98% of the episode score.

    By: John Cacavas
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6hqv7t (CORRECT)

    Highlights:

  • 14:23 in.^

    I'm forever cursed (in a good way, mind you) that whenever I hear the song "Copacabana", I immediately repalce it with this:

    Another score from Cacavas that while not sounding like a "Hawaii Five-O" score, maybe should have gotten an Emmy nomination.

    SEASON 12:

    All episodes this final season have a credited composer.

    The season twelve theme arrangement is better tan it's been in two or three seasons now, but still nothing great. Just my opinion, but the theme went downhill from after season one and never recovered.



    "A Lion in the Streets: Part 1"
    By: Morton Stevens
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6i9vhk

    Highlights:

  • 29:55 in.
  • 37:20 in.^
  • 42:16 in.^(43:27/44:06)

    What's up with the weird cop names in some of these shows? "S.W.A.T." has a guy named Street, and this new season of this how has a new character named Truck. So, how far away were we from Sign and Potato?

    By: Bruce Broughton
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6im8rf

    Highlights:

  • 22:58 in.^
  • 26:06 in. Piano cue in a Marvin Hamlisch "The Sting" vein. Another score cue not like it is connected to it.^

  • 8:51/10:58/11:32/13:01 in.^
  • 22:17 in.^
  • About 33:00 in. The source music playing on the radio.^(maybe)
  • 37:18 in.
  • 39:23 in.^
  • 42:26 in.
  • 43:58 in.^

    If James Bond had a son, and his son went on a "James Bond, Jr." adventure and it was a 1970's TV movie, this is what the score might sound like.

    Finishing SEASON 12:




    "Clash of Shadows"
    By: Duane Tatro (as Duane L. Tatro; I think this is the first time I've ever seen him credited any other way [than a spelling error])
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6ihdbj

    This is the only effort by Tatro for the series.

    Highlights:
  • 9:19 in.^(9:55)
  • 11:43 in.^
  • 14:24 in.^
  • 22:05 in.^
  • 28:18 in.^
  • 34:42 in.^
  • 42:21 in.
  • 48:11 in.



    "A Bird in Hand..."
    By: Don B. Ray
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6ihdbh

    Highlights:
  • 0:53 in.^
  • 5:36 in.
  • 8:46 in. Joining a cue already in progress.^
  • 13:30 in.^
  • 18:31 in.
  • 21:15 in.^
  • 28:38 in.^(28:53/skip dialogue to next part))
  • 32:00 in.^
  • 36:24 in.
  • 42:14 in.



    "The Moroville Covenant"
    By: James Di Pasquale
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6ihd84

    This is the only effort by Di Pasquale for the series.

    Highlights:
  • 0:54 in.^
  • 3:11 in.^
  • 19:02 in.^
  • 26:06 in.^
  • 27:54 in.
  • 34:16 in. And the cue after the commercial break.^(both)

    I'm glad this was his only episode. It's not a bad score, but nothing about it says "Hawaii Five-O".
    Well, not that he had a choice -- second-to-last episode, you know.

    (NtM: 44:31)




    "Woe to Wo Fat" (20) (series finale)
    By: Morton Stevens
    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6ikbuz

    Series finale, the return of Wo Fat, the final confrontation, and Stevens. I'm expecting good things here!

    Highlights:
  • 0:54 in.^
  • 2:07 in.^
  • 3:17 in.^
  • 5:33 in.^(closing)
  • 13:04 in.^
  • 14:06 in.
  • 19:42 in.^(21:39)
  • 31:09 in.^(32:05)
  • 36:21 in.^
  • 38:08 in.^
  • 40:07 in.^
  • 43:45 in.

    Not many long-running series with multiple composers go out on the same composer they began with.

    McGarrett made up like an old man looks like a combo of Vangelis and Kamen.

    "Aloha, Wo Fat."



    Tomorrow:

    I begin the spin-off, continuation, and remake. And what ever else I find.
