This week's suites.

"The A-Team"

Suite #1 which encompasses the pilot and the first episodes afterwards. Due to flash drive space availability, no further suites are planned.

"Get Christie Love!"

Suite #1 (of two) for Stu Phillips. Two as of right now, as the full composer credits for the show are not solved and he may have done more than three episodes.


Suite #1 (of two) for George Duning.

"Police Woman"

Suite #2 for Jerrold Immel. Yes, you are not mistaken -- I haven't posted suite #1 for him yet. The first suite has my favorite material, so I am saving it for last.

Oh, and I guess one more...

"Hawaii Five-O"

Suite #1 for Morton Stevens. No further suites possible at this time because of flash drive storage capacity space.

This is a very very very special suite. This suite comprises the complete Emmy-winning score to the episode "Hookman" (well, edited as needed to remove SFX/FX). Part of what makes this so special is that four cues (nearly half the running time of the suite) are SFX free because they are taken from an obscure promo Stevens put out years ago with selections from various projects he did.

The music from the promo has been re-mastered by a fan. Unfortunately, either the sore was recorded too hot or mixed to hot for the promo, and when the cues get loud, the dynamic range is cut off and it's like a block line when viewing it in an editor.

YouTube/Google automatically blocked it world wide for copyright, specifically one cue -- an SFX free cue from the promo. So, rather than cut if off and re-upload, I have uploaded the video file.

Yes, there is a little bit more score from the show on the promo, so one day when I can do more suites, I'll include those cues as needed. I wanted to do the show in order, but with limited space, I knew right away if I had to pick one score, it was going to be "Hookman".

RELATED NOTE: MRAUDIO pointed out cues were tracked into the episode "The Flip Side is Death", so I went back to the episode to see if I could get cleaner parts of cues to paste over bad sections in "Hookman". Thankfully ALL the cues tracked, were on the promo! That's some sweet coincidence right there. I also edited the post that has "The Flip Side is Death" in my "Hawaii Five-O" thread to remove tracked cues from the highlights section and onto the end to let readers know.

What to expect from Monday's suites.

Another "Mannix" suite, another "Baretta" suite, Frank Comstock goodness, and the final suite for Shores on "Hunter". Maybe one more suite (editing is up in the air at the moment).

This week's suites.


Suite #4 -- the final suite for Tom Scott. With that, these four suites cover all episodes he did for season one. The week after next: the final suite for Grusin.

"The D.A.'s Man"

Suite #1 for Frank Comstock. As far as I know -- not all episodes are up -- he was the only contributing composer to the short-lived series. It had one full season. I have made two suites. There are more episodes up, but I just don't have the flash drive space to do them.


Suite #4 for Shores. This is the final suite I have for him. Not all episodes are available, so this is as far s I could go. I have one more suite to go, for Richard Markowtiz.

"The Law and Harry McGraw"

Suite #2 -- the final suite -- for David Bell. I have one more suite for the show, to be posted the week after next.


Suite #1 (of two) for Jeff Alexander.

Next Monday: another Meat & Potatoes Monday.

Anyone enjoy the Comstock score?

 By:   merlyn   (Member)

Yes Justin really enjoying the Comstock score

Thanks Justin for another eclectic mix of suites

You're welcome.

I think -- at four suites a week -- I have two more months worth of suites remaining.

What to expect from Monday's suites.

The final suite for "The Law and Harry McGraw", the final suite for "The Bold Ones: The Lawyers", Morton Stevens, a suite for our service men (since like I said before: November is war month), and maybe one more suite.

This week's suites. With two extras.

Apologies in advance; I didn't get to the Morton Stevens suites. I will double up next week if I can (should be two suites for one score).

"The D.A.'s Man"

Suite #2 -- the final suite that I can do.

"The Law and Harry McGraw"

One score suite covering the last two episodes, which were scored by orchestrator Jack Smalley. Very enjoyable stuff. I would hope had that series continued, he would have scored more.

"The Bold Ones: The Lawyers"

Final suite. All suites cover the two pilots and the entire first season. No more suites will be done for the show.


Suite #2 for Lalo Schifrin.

And in my little way of honoring the veterans and service men, I spent November doing war series, but now I will do one last addition -- two war suites.

Episode: "Lady on the Rock"
By: John Williams

This suite covers the entire score, minus source music (no room fort the source score with my fifteen minute video-length limit).

"The Dirty Dozen: The Series"

Suite #1 covering the first few episode scores done by Doug Timm. No further suites are possible because of not only flash drive space availability, but half the episodes are no longer online.

It's another Meat & Potatoes Monday: "Baretta", "Mannix", "Police Woman", Elmer Bernstein, and maybe one other suite.

This week's suites.
And some notes about the rest of the year in regards to TV series scoring threads and suites.

Some apologies. I didn't get to "Police Woman". Yes, I mentioned Bernstein, but I forgot I was behind on Morton Stevens. I've swapped Bernstein for Stevens, and swapped PW for another show.


Suite #2 for Dave Grusin. It appears he only scored two episodes of the series. With this suite, I have covered all of season one.


Suite #2 for Richard Hazard. It's the last suite I have for him. With these two suites, I think I covered all his season one efforts and a small portion of season two.


Suite #2 for Schifrin. This is all I had recorded, so this is the final suite. Three suites is surely enough to hold people over until some label releases the scoring from the show. :-)

"Poor Devil"

This was a pilot from 1973 for a potential series. Sammy Davis, Jr. starred as a man living in Hell and not making Satan happy, so Satan sends him to Earth and rick people into giving Satan their souls, but Sammy manages to screw things up.

This wonderful and sadly unreleased score is just another in a long-line of Morton Stevens scores that have bafflingly never been released. This score deserves to be released!

Special Note:
This suite contains a cue from a super obscure Morton Stevens demo of scoring from his film and television work (though almost exclusively TV work). And thankfully it is for the long shopping center climax, because my original edit of that cut nearly two minutes out because of heavy FX/SFX -- including about thirty seconds of the entire ending. Now it's ALL there thanks to the promo.


Thanks to all the fans of great old TV scoring that have stuck with my threads and hopefully discovered scoring they didn't even know. And hopefully you all enjoyed the suites.

Here is what you'll get from the rest of the year in regards to TV scoring threads:
  • Another thriller for the month of Haloween.
  • A animated Halloween special which is a personal favorite of mine that I want to champion the music and songs to.
  • "The Cousteau Odyssey"
  • Finishing up "The Rookies".
  • Doubling back to "Quantum Leap" and hopefully having enough time to finish it.
  • I may or may not get to "O'Hara United States Treasury" this year.
  • If there is time, I may double back to another series to do a little more.

    I'll be taking December off. If I have any suites handy, I'll continue posting them, but there will be no TV scoring threads being worked on. I'll also probably be taking off the other two big U.S. holidays.

    For suites for this year: some more "Mannix", miscellaneous things I have promised (including one CURIOSOTY CORNER item and a Rosenman), four suites covering all the episodes Elmer Bernstein scored of "The Rookies", one "Cannon" suite, one "Code Red" suite, two Mark Snow suites, Grusin, Shire, two or three other previously un-mentioned surprises. And sometime December I'll drop a surprise suite on you that is good as gold; it'll be my Christmas present to score lovers.

    Turns out I have a little more room on the flash drive than I thought, so I intend to finish up season one of "The Rookies", finish up "Delvecchio", and hopefully give me room for a couple other small things.


    As always, time pending, I have shows already lined up. Two westerns, two shows Dominic Frontiere worked on, two emergency services series, two comedies, and Jack Palance might make his way in.

    What to expect from Tuesday's suites. I won't be here Monday.

    Anther "Mannix" suite, another the second and final "Get Christie Love!" suite for Stu, Mark Snow, and the fourth suite is up in the air. Might also be fifth suite.

    This week's suites.
    And a note on the suites for the net two weeks.


    Suite #2 for Fielding.


    Suite #1 (of two) for Mark Snow's work on the short-lived series. This covers the pilot and first few episodes. I wanted to over the whole series, but flash drive space dictates otherwise.

    "Get Christie Love!"

    Suite #2 for Stu Phillips. This is the last suite for him (unless it turns out he scored more episodes).

    "Code Red"

    Suite #1 Richard LaSalle. I wanted to cover all the episodes I could that he scored, but this is all I have room for. This covers the pilot and certain first few episodes (since not all the episodes are up). This includes his original opening/closing theme for the pilot which was not kept for the rest of the series.

    Next week is the final Meat & Potatoes Monday.
    Then the week after next week -- the final Monday of October -- a nearest I can get to a Halloween-themed pick of suites. Two suites with scary music, Mark Snow, and sadly that's probably all I can muster -- the final suite will be a regular suite likely).

    Normally I wouldn't so readily reveal a surprise I was working on, but I need a little help. I don't know if anyone here can help.

    So, a few weeks ago the super SUPER rare appearance of three episodes of the 1971 series "Primus" surfaced (Leonard Rosenman). I had recorded audio for the three episodes but could not finish one because I ran out of time. And I did not get a screen grab of his credit.

    Well, the next day I could get back to it, the channel had been deleted.

    If anybody has this unreleased series, I am needing the last five to ten minutes (including the end credits) of the episode "Nuclear Black Market", in order to finish and hopefully have the first of two suites up sometime November.

    What to expect from the final Meat & Potatoes Monday suites.

    Another "Mannix" suite, a "Cannon" suite, a "Remington Steele" suite, and a score of Bernstein scoring from "The Rookies".

    That's some good eatin' right there, I tell you what.

    This week's suites, for a final Meat & Potatoes Monday.


    Suite #2 for John Parker. The suite for a singular episode I did earlier, I consider suite #1.

    Good news: I thought it would take three or maybe four suites to cover Dana Kaproff's work on "Delvecchio", but it turned out only one suite was needed, so I had some space and recorded audio for a third suite for Parker, to be posted in a few weeks...


    Suite #2 -- the final suite -- for George Duning.
    when I did the thread for the series scoring, I assumed the IMDb composer credits were correct for the most part, but it turned out one of the episodes Duning is credited for on IMDb, he is not credited for on screen. So, taking the precaution that he maybe did some original uncredited scoring and some member of IMDb made a faulty submission, I went ahead and covered it, too.

    "Remington Steele"

    Yeah, steele making suites.

    Suite #1 (of two). The second suite will be for Halloween week next week, since about half of if is "scary" music.

    "The Rookies"

    Suite #1 for Elmer Bernstein, who scored some episodes in season one (aside from just providing the series' main theme).
