You're both very welcome. I just wish there had been more its on them.

You're doing the Lord's work, my friend!

Many if not most of these TV scores from the 60s and 70s will probably never get a proper CD or digital release. This may be the closest film score fans will over come to being able to appreciate all of this great music!

What to expect from Monday's suites.

Another "Harry O" suite, a Quinn Martin Production (hopefully this one get's MV's attention if he's not heard it...), maybe a "Mannix" suite, and possibly something else (maybe a CURIOSITY CORNER item). The last two are subject to change and may end up being something else altogether.

This week's suites.

"Harry O"

Suite #3 for Richard Clements. The count down begins of the remaining suites; in this order once a week for the next three weeks you will get: Richmond, Clements, and finally Goldenberg.


Suite #1 (of two) covering the second (and final) episode of the series that Allyn Ferguson and Jack Elliot scored.

Composer: Patrick Williams

This was a failed pilot from Quinn Martin Productions that aired in 1978. Just awful, with horrible continuity (cloths and things change from scene-to-scene in parts) and bad writing. Apparently done on the cheap and intended as a sort of American version of "The New Avengers", this rightfully failed and is forgotten. You need not watch the pilot -- spare yourself.

This is somewhere around 90% of the score, I'd estimate. Unfortunately, there is only one load of the pilot and there is fucking news break talking over most of the end credits music, so I had to break it up into two short pieces.


"Dream Wife"
Composer: Lyn Murray

A failed pilot from 1965 that didn't even have an IMDb page until I added it a week or two ago.

Shirley Jones stars as a wife who can hear people's thoughts and uses it for a better marriage, taking care of her son, and even trying to save people's lives.

It's a comedy I can't say was bad, it's just … there.

Hi Justin many thanks for the latest batch brilliant!

You're welcome.

I'm surprised "Escapade" got so many more hits. Maybe it was because it was a QM project.

What to expect from Monday's suites:

"Harry O"

and "Baretta"

The fourth suite is up in the air at the moment.

I spent the last month using a mind-boggling amount of time working on the Immel suites for "Police Woman", doing what I did for the "Baretta" pilot -- on suite #1 I went through the PW series and I think I found like 98% of all tracked Immel stuff and used clean/cleaner parts to replace FX/SFX heavy parts. Certain cues I felt were worth that time -- it's great stuff. So, they're like 99% done being edited and now the volume raising begins for dip-downs. I'll have further notes when I post the first suite either Monday or the Monday after next.

This week's suites.

"Harry O"

Suite of score with selections from all episodes Kim Richmond scored.


Suite #1 (of four) for Tom Scott.

NOTE: Not as much tracking of Scott cues was done, so I wasn't able to do much salvage work as I did on the first Grusin suite. One or two of the Scott suites I left in Grusin stuff that was edited onto presumably original Scott material, so as to eliminate sudden random beginnings.


Suite #2 for Allyn Ferguson and Jack Elliott. These first two suites cover the second score they did for the series (which was also the last one). Eventually I'll make a suite or two to cover the other episode they did.

"Go Girl"
Composer: Wayne Bickerton and Tony Waddington

I'll have to explain this one. "Go Girl" was a thirteen-episode TV series from the early 1970's that never aired. Made as some kind of weird 1960's-ish "Charlie's Angels"/James Bond adventure knock-off, what little information that is online states the series was wiped and recorded over. Somehow the pilot survived and was released on DVD years ago paired with another project. It starred a hot blonde girl named Luan Peters.

The score is in the kind of adventure 1960's/1970's mode you'd hope for. Like me you've no doubt not heard other either composer, but please don't let that make you skip the suite -- if you've enjoyed the funky and jazz TV scoring I've covered before, this should be right up your alley. It takes about thirty seconds to really get going.

Hopefully the tapes for the scoring were not recorded over, or are at least the estate of either composer (assuming they are dead) has copies. If more episodes should be found or somebody has them and would like to contact me so I can made further suites, see my profile for e-mail.

More great stuff!

As to the Grusin/Scott BARETTA music mix, seems like Grusin's "Tell" is an abundance of jazz flute and more traditional orchestral stuff woven together; Scott seems to be almost all funky jazz, very little traditional style scoring.

You're welcome. And thanks for helping to make "Baretta" possible.

This is really early, but what to expect from Monday's suites, and what to expect from most of the rest of the year on TV series threads:

Monday's suites: One more fictitious Richard Day; yes, the final Richard Clements from "Harry O", another suite from "Hunter" by Shores, and two more with "Richard" in them. After that there is not enough for full Richard Day's.

What to expect from suites this remainder of the year:
"Mannix" (season one will be fully covered, and parts of other seasons; can't do the whole show -- flash drive is over half-way filled up! Sorry).
"The Law and Harry McGraw" (suites for all episodes, covering all three composers).
A TV movie score by Fred Steiner.
Leonard Rosenman.
A tiny bit of documentary scores.
Dana Kaproff.
"The Dirty Dozen: The Series".
"Remington Steele".
Mark Snow.
Mike Post & Pete Carpenter.
Morton Stevens.
And more; can't give everything away, where's the fun in that? :-)

What to expect from TV series threads (subject to change as channels or videos get deleted):
All of August is police series/emergency services shows.
September is all war.
October will be a month of thrillers.
Amongst the series you will see in the remainder of this year: finishing up "The Law & Harry McGraw" series (all episodes are up now; the only "Murder, She Wrote" spin-off series made), "Sarge", "Get Christie Love!", "Chase", and I go out to sea with Jacques Cousteau (why yes, that does mean John Scott!).

This week's suites for another fictitious Richard Day.

"Harry O"

Final suite for Richard Clements. Next Monday I will post the last suite I have for the show.


Suite #2 for Clements.


Suite #2 for Shores.

"The Law and Harry McGraw"

Suite #1 (covering the pilot TV movie) for Richard Markowtiz. There will be three suites for him.

Please let me know if you were able to listen to this suite or not; I am having trouble with it on YT.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, if there are suites next week, they will not be posted on Monday. I cannot give you a specific day right now, for those who look forward to them.

What to expect from the batch:

Because of the circumstances, right now I can only say for sure there will be three suites. This week I will have had nearly zero editing time, so I can only mention three suites that are done and just waiting to be loaded: the final "Harry O" suites, another "Baretta" suite, and an unreleased TV movie score by Fred Steiner.

12 O'Clock High
Hill Street Blues
St. Elsewhere

I'm not asking for much. Just those four and I'd be happy.

Pretty sure that one of the soundtrack labels is pondering an official TWELVE O'CLOCK HIGH release so hang tough...

Wow, what?! I had no idea this was turned into a TV show! The film is absolutely nuts - for the opening sequence they crash-landed an actual plane. So crazy.

I'll have to look into the TV show now.

12 O'Clock High was apparently a Quinn Martin show so score tracks survive thanks to QM music supervisor who saved a lot of stuff. From the internet: "The Film Music Society, a vital film-music preservation organization, is the home of an estimated 500 reels of QM music, saved when the company went out business back in the early 1980s."

30 Rock.

Not only is Jeff Richmond's theme one of the most delightful 20 seconds or so you'll ever hear at the beginning of a sitcom, but I believe he scored most if not all of the series. Short cues, but clever and very witty.

Richmond was a producer of the series and Tina Fey's husband.

Suites are post-poned until sometime next week, sorry. Again, the circumstances are still continuing.


"12 O'clock high" is one of the last dozen or less hour-long, long-running series I want to cover, so you can look forward to that at some point. If you search my Youtube channel, I have one or two suites fro ma two-parter up, and one short suite which just demonstrates the theme similarity to "Star Trek".

"Combat!" is not a title I will be covering for the reasons that Rosenman said he created a library of cues to be tracked as needed, therefore it appears no episode had an original score and therefore a lot of tracking. Now that one episode credited to somebody else, is probably an original score.

Also, Film Music Society released something like eleven/twelve minutes of score, which they said was all that could be found, years ago.

I don't think I need to retread things at this juncture, but my disgust with the "morals", ethics and hypocritical Fascist left-ism of Hollywood leave a bad taste on my mouth, I can just cant' stomack to watch a show that's had a line up of some of Hollyweird's crop of Godawful people. Mentioning Tina Fay just simply gives me a another reason -- albeit tenuous at best -- to not cover the show.

Belated suites.

The laptop broke, I had to take it in, it took almost three weeks for it to be repaired, meanwhile all suite videos and all suites that were in progress, were stored only on the laptop, which left me unable to do anything and be online very much. I've not made any money in nearly four weeks, so it hurt to pay the ransom to get it out.

Afterwards a brief comment on next week's suites (which I usually mention on a Thursday or Friday anyway).


Suite #2 for Tom Scott.

"Harry O"

Suite #3 for Billy Goldenberg. This is the final suite I have for him, which finishes season one. No further channels with loads have popped up and I can't do season two.

"The Bold Ones: The Lawyers"
By: Pete Rugolo

Suite #2 (of three) which covers episodes one to five. The previous suite, as mentioned, covered the two pilots.

"Night Terror"
By: Fred Steiner

Unreleased score to a 1977 TV movie.

What to expect from Monday's suites:

Hell if I know. I wasn't able to work on anything for almost three weeks. I know I have some stuff "in the can" and ready, so what ever it ready might be there. Can't really know for sure without looking over it. I suppose another Shores, Clements, and Markowitz is likely. Many things are nearing completion and may be done on Sunday when I edit, so there's no telling for certain.
