With all the miracles overcome with licensing we have witnessed lately and all the terrific TV soundtrack box sets, what about the HAWAII FIVE-0 original series?

It would certainly be a monumental project, and would probably have to be done in spurts (like BATTLESTAR GALACTICA) but it would certainly fill a huge void in the library of great releases. Some of the most inventive TV music of the 60's and 70's for sure.

I second this request. Hawaii Five-O deserves a release to other similar to other shows from that time period. So much good music!

I’ve been ready for a FIVE-O box set for years.

I wonder where the law suit stands, as I believe
that this is what is holding up a release.

Watched "Death with Father" (season 6) last night. It boasts what has to be the most energetic score Morton Stevens ever composed. Since I hadn't seen the episode in a few years, I was tricked into thinking that the score was by Bruce Broughton, who could do a Morton Stevens impersonation better than anyone.

The frenetic, Artie Kane-style piano cue when the Andrew Duggan character steals five million dollars in drugs from the police department property room is magnificent. The cue must have been reused in subsequent episodes because it's one permanently etched in my score-loving memory.

"Let's go, son; you're coming with me."

"No, Pop. You're coming with me."

That's one seriously f_cked-up ending, but then "Welcome to the early '70s, punk." cool

The TV tracks could not possibly be any better than the Capitol LP.

The TV tracks are infinitely superior to the LP...infinitely! Five-O's underscore improved considerably after season one, with its peak being around seasons 4-6. Even Pete Rugolo contributed a score!

OK. Coming from you, who does not seem to embrace the consumerism aspect of film music with the level of zeal often seen here, I will trust your judgment.

Sometimes I think people want box sets of TV music because they run out of things to buy.

I say this as someone who owns most of the TV music box sets that get discussed here. wink

I mentioned in another thread that this show was on for some time while I would do elliptical workouts at the gym. I used to plan my gym trips around it.

I really cracked up at the unintentionally funny episode in which someone was threatening to blow up the island with a nuclear bomb.

You can imagine how this would play out in the real world.

What did they do on Hawaii Five-0? There was a montage in which Jack Lord's sidekicks were calmly interviewing gas station attendants to learn if they had seen anything suspicious, and calmly jotting down notes on pads.

I watch Five-O for many reasons, but not for its informative, realistic portrayal of the dangers of nuclear energy.

I do watch it for every other reason, though.

You need "The China Syndrome" for that.

I have no idea if or when a FIVE-O set might come out, so I decided a while ago to create a suite of music off of the DVD for “Death With Father” and it came out great with very little SFX and no dialogue.

This is a truly fantastic score by Mort and it happened to be one of his favorites as well from the series:-)

The music heard during the heist of the drugs was taken from HOOKMAN, but the rest of the music is an original score by Mort - simply wonderful:-)

Is the theft cue the same music heard in the lengthy scene in which "Hookman" is making the nameplate?

...or maybe it's heard in the scene when "Hookman" is setting up his first hit?

Sorry, Phelps, we're not telling. You'll just have to watch the episode again and find out for yourself, you senile old bat!

As I wrote several years ago:

"Turkey Shoot at Makapuu-

"Easily the episode with the most "1970s-ness"! In this one we get:
Hang gliders
custom vans
eight-track tapes
funk music
bright orange headphones
a Paul Williams lookalike
a "Honey Blonde" in the form of Lee Purcell

"The warmed-over late '60s era of the early '70s is finally gone. The '70s really didn't start until 1975, or rather the 1960s didn't end until 1975..."

"No. It wasn't that either. There was 1974...and 1975; that's all there was."

Yes Sir - that’s the cue:-)

Really puts the average strained FSMer-father-son relationship into perspective.
