Oh, come on... Bopha??!!! Unlawful Entry??!! What's next, maybe Freedom Song??!!

There are so many other Horners worthy of expansion, or completely unreleased, by the way.


Who says the labels aren't working on those other scores as well. Or maybe those titles are more difficult to release.

But it's very simple... If you don't like it, don't buy it.

It's not a matter of what I like or not.

My point is: why a top label would waste efforts on producing titles only a very few might buy (previous editions of such obscure music are available cheap on the secondary market), and later they express annoyance that people don't buy the products or that the market has become difficult.

And NONE of those will prevent the release of more worthy scores. Some are just easier to reissue than others. That was Roger Feigelson's whole point.

I LOVE this stuff. I'm really hoping that it includes Johnny Parker's "Spanish Curse" music. All these years later I can still hear the Newmanesque trumpet work behind Thayer David's performance.

The trailer music (see above) really reminds me of Shores' work on the U.N.C.L.E. series (serieses?).

"Can't hardly wait".

I wish the July 4th sale lasted one more day so we could order them along with the new releases (for combined shipping).
Of course if I could really make a wish come true, I wouldnt waste it on trying to save on shipping. wink

My goodness.

I'm reminded of a famous quote by Harlan Ellison...

“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”

More people could learn to be appreciative of the efforts by the labels. There have been so many wonderful releases. If there is something you are not interested in, don't complain about it, just move along.

How would the fans of Wild Wild West describe the music for someone who is not familiar with it? I'm a big Tiomkin fan so it is intriguing for sure.

I am a big Dimitri Tiomkin fan also, but how much of this CD is the work of Dimitri Tiomkin ?

Compared to the composers presented on the series, Tiomkin's sound is at odd and from another time (the Golden Age).
Silver Age composer Richard Markowitz—who replaces Tiomkin—is a modernist who combines jazz, Americana and military march.
Markowitz was the equivalent of Lalo Schifrin for The Wild Wild West. Markowitz shapes the sound of the two leading characters (Jim and Artie) and the main foe (Dr Loveless). During season 3, Markowitz re-arranged the theme of James West with a filtered electric guitar to be hip.

With only (sic) 28 episode scores represented someone's bound to be disappointed...

Unless they decide to do what they did with Wonder Woman and give all the composers a look-in. And if they do do that, that means "The Night of Spanish Curse" will be there, whereas Robert Prince will probably only get "The Night of the Winged Terror, Part 1."!

Not very much Tiomkin I would suggest.

Also the score is somewhat 'eclectic', if I can put it that way - there are examples on YouTube.

It's Richard Shore's music that I'm most looking forward to smile

It's not a wasted effort. It's a sound economic decision with a guarantee of 1000 units sold within the first 30 days of release, netting an income of roughly $17k, a profit of about $8k.

Rest assured I'll be contributing to that 8k profit.

I sincerely apologise if I sounded rude or something! It wasn't my intention at all. I love LLL deeply and respect their outstanding work by all means.

And I'm not complaining, I adore Horner. My reaction was adressed to those who think we need expanded reissues of scores like "Bopha". But I also believe people can express opinions freely.

Just for the record, on another post I suggested LLL should revisit Mark Isham's "Reversal of Fortune" and I was attacked for saying this. So obviously on man's junk is another's treasure.

Peace! smile

Isham is a wonderful composer, but he doesn't have the fanbase of Horner. Sometimes it's all about the composer (Williams, Goldsmith, Barry, Elfman, Zimmer, Poledouris, Kamen, Herrmann, Carpenter) seem to have fans that will buy just about everything...even over again if there is something new to add!

Please don't forget the legendary film score composer, Sir Monty Norman. Composer of the "Dr No" Film score.
