I am proud to have been named (although he got a letter wrong) in positive terms by Jeff Bond himself! See? Positive, productive posts which you sweat blood for CAN pay off in the end! Let that be a lesson to you all.

Tom, I would obviously "quite like to have" the LOST IN SPACE box set, but I haven't touched the 15-disc STAR TREK set in about a year. Still, I'll happily accept it as a birthday present. It isn't until August, so you've all got plenty of time to think about it.

Next year, at the same time, THE INVADERS!

I've been enjoying this set since its release (thank you, La-La Land!), with the Leith Stevens material being a particular favorite (second only to John William's "The Crash" score for me.)

The booklet refers to the episode "Rescue" as Steven's final work for the series, but he actually has a composer credit on a subsequent episode, "The Chase" (which I think was the last episode produced for the first season.) I watched "The Chase" on DVD not too long ago, mostly to check out the music, but none of it jumped out at me as being original; in fact, I could have sworn it was all recycled library cues (the last five minutes was definitely scored with Williams material from "The Crash.") But I'm guessing if he got a credit, there must have been some original music in there somewhere.

I'm also crazy about the Robert Prince cues from "Nightmare."

I don't think that's how it works. If a composer's reused cues come to a certain percentage of the music in the episode, they get credited. I'm not sure what that percentage is.

Yes, 1960s TV music credits are notoriously misleading--tracked episodes often credited the composer who contributed the most music but the formulas for working even that idea out didn't seem too reliable....

Well one explanation on the GIANTS set was that...there were damaged elements but in the LINER NOTES to VOYAGE, it is stated that the music for GIANTS was found relatively intact....so...why then do we have so little from episodes such as FRAMED (four minutes), UNDERGROUND (just over five min), MANHUNT (9 min), and etc. None of the new scores released seem to be over 20 min and it's disappointing and embarrassing. At least VOYAGE is mostly represented by these scores with only a few major cues missing (mostly the action music from MONSTER FROM THE INFERNO and the search music from DEADLY DOLLS and RESCUE as well as the rising tension action from LOST BOMB and of course, the first season music). This set is far better than GIANTS' set which remains highly annoying to me and one of the biggest disappointing merchandise I ever bought from any series. I do wish they would release another GIANTS set and have FRAMED, UNDERGROUND, MANHUNT, and maybe snippets missed in INIDU released. Almost every score on GIANTS is butchered and I do not believe the excuse is that the material was not in good shape as the liner notes said most of GIANTS was found in useable form. It's just disappointing that is what we got: half a dream.
