Another worthy CBS western series is Rawhide, to which Jerry contributed a single very good score (not quite on the level of "A Head of Hair" but still darn good).

I remember recommending that episode score in some thread here, saying it was one of his best TV episode scores.

A suite I made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DhkTc1JV_M



Other composers who scored episodes according to IMDb: Bernard Herrmann, Fred Steiner, Leith Stevens, Lyn Murray, Paul Sawtell, Richard Shores, Gerald Fried, and John Green. And supposedly the great Russell Garcia (The Time Machine) composed a whopping 22 episode scores!


No, somebody has been adding credits to IMDb for Garcia where he was either credited and/or had score tracked; I've almost finished solving the composer on each episode of the series and I only have a few episodes in season six left to do and he's not credited on a single episode score, though he supposed did an uncredited score for the episode "Incident at Barker Springs".
EDIT: Just looked them up and no composer is credited. Turns out I missed one from season three: "Incident of the Painted Lady" (also solved that one, too). No credited scores on these three.
After that I'll re-check my composer tally and call it a day unless somebody like Burlingame wants to note uncredited episodes.

My composer count thus far stands at:
Leith Stevens (1, so far)
Jerry Goldsmith (1, so far)
Fred Steiner (9, so far)
Russell Garcia (1, so far)
Dimitri Tiomkin (1, so far)
Nathan Scott (4 or 5, so far)
Leon Klatzkin (7, so far)
Richard Shores (2, so far)
Rudy Schrager (15)
Gerald Fried (2, so far)
Paul Sawtell (1, so far)
Lyn Murray (2, so far)
Johnny Green (1, so far)
Billy May, R.I.P. (1, so far)
Bernard Herrmann (2, so far)
Hugo Friedhofer (1, so far)
Harry Geller (1, so far)

Other composers I've found associated with the series (could be tracked music, original library music, uncredited scoring, etc.) so far includes:
Howard Jackson
Bernhard Kaun
Robert Drasnin
Wilbur Hatch
Lucien Moraweck
Jerome Moross
Marlin Skiles
Don Ray, R.I.P.
Dimitri Tiomkin
Martin L. Klein
William Grant Still
Willaim Lava
Leonard Rosenman
Daniele Amfitheatrof
Marius Constant
Laurence Rosenthal
Ernest Gold
Nathan Van Cleave
Sol Kaplan



I hesitate to mention Gunsmoke, because Justin Boggan already has a great thread going through all the fantastic scores from that series (including at least six by Goldsmith)...I kinda fear that with 20 seasons of material to work through, that may just be too intimidating/overwhelming a prospect. But I hope I'm wrong.

I only hope my list was helpful. I like to think I helped narrow the episodes down, so some can just be skipped for selection.

But it's not twenty seasons worth of material though; between episodes with no credited composer and the first four or five seasons with no original score at all (some original library music was credited), there isn't that much. Maybe, if I had to guess off the top of my head, twelve seasons worth.

Well original episodes scores were definitely happening by the fifth season of Gunsmoke, because that's when Jerry wrote his first. But point taken regarding that fact the multiple seasons happened without original episode scoring. But still I imagine the series is a daunting prospect, even if there only were 12-15 seasons of material -- MV has said that the first volumes of these things are always so expensive because all the recorded material has to be pulled and gone through, so I imagine HGWT or Rawhide is a much less intimidating series to tackle (ooh, how cool would it be to have actor & film composer Clint Eastwood pen a little booklet note for the latter? Think about it, MV!)

Thanks for clearing up the Russell Garcia mystery, Justin -- I was wondering why he was credited for the entire first season of Perry Mason, on IMDb! Great composer, in any case, so if he did write material for these shows, I hope someone can rescue it for release.

Jason??? Don't make me smack you around. ;-)

I think I'll go check if any of those "Rawhide" episodes have popped up yet, so I can complete the listing...

DAMMIT! I know who you are, and my hands type something else. For some reason they mix you and Jason LeBlanc up as bad as people often mix up Leonard Rosenman and Laurence Rosenthal.

So sorry, Justin! Fixed. frown

No problem. You'd be surprised at how often people want to call me "Jason".

Maybe, with so few original scores, I should do a thread for "Rawhide".

I would love to see Queen of the Desert by Klaus Badelt get an official score release.

Ghost in the Shell by Mansell and Balfe.

The original Spyro the Dragon Trilogy soundtracks by Stewart Copeland. (Maybe even the fourth if we are lucky.)

My personal holy grail, The Blue Butterfly by Stephen Endelman.

Given that each Spyro game has over eighty minutes of music, that's a LOT of discs for all three games! It'd probably be quite expensive.

Sony Pictures are developing a He-Man movie which has a set release date of December 2019. David Goyer has written the script and Aaron and Adam Nee have been assigned to direct. It sounds like this film is definitely going to happen - my question is, will this affect any potential release of She-Ra by LLL? I'm hoping not! This was/is an issue with both Ghostbusters and X-Men scores I think?

MV, ALIEN3.

How did this set become a reality when for so many years it was considered an impossibility? What happened?

What was once lost was found!

We were having a meeting here at LLL last year about this time and Mike Matessino received a call from the Fox archivist telling him that by, some sheer stroke of luck, they located the masters for Alien 3. The question we then had on our minds was -- get it out for the film's 25th Anniversary in 2017 (most likely BLACK FRIDAY) or wait until Alien Day 2018?

Well, since we had already planned to release Dr Dolittle, Titanic and Die Another Day for Black Friday (CEOT3K was originally slated for Sept 2017) we decided it was already crowded enough and that Alien Day 2018 was the way to go!

Miracles do happen

Were the Moonraker tapes in the same box?

(Yes, I know they have nothing to do with each other in any way. Sheesh.)

Love those kinds of stories. Unless it's known tapes were thrown out, "missing" is always the correct status.
