I received the famous CD set and it is simply wonderful all the way.
Starting with Jerry Goldsmith’s pilot for Barnaby Jones that he hated but was obliged to do because he needed money badly.
Among other things, the pilot “Requiem for a Son” reminds a blend of The Last Run and Escape from the Planet of the Apes.
The Broughton’s score is also very good.
I’m just finished off the Dan August scores in which you realize how dense the music is thanks to Dave Grusin’s rich and complexe work. Sometimes, you hear echoes from Prescription: Murder and The Scorpio Letters.

That CD#1 is fabulous.

Dan August is my favourite set of cues on the album. Surprisingly, the Schifrin Most Wanted tracks were probably my least favourite; for whatever reason they didn't really grab me at all.

Overall though a great set smile

This set is beyond awesome and sounds truly fantastic. If you think about it, it's also really a wonderful bargain because it is essentially four TV score albums in one, plus exciting bonus themes. The two disc set is so packed that each of the main shows gets 31-39 minutes of music, even with the space taken by the bonuses! Many labels have put out standalone albums of around that length, for $20. Getting four of them for only $5 more is a total steal...and the music itself is overall fantastic!

Any fan of Goldsmith, Broughton, Grusin, or Schifrin *needs* to pick this up, as they are all honestly at the top of their game, here. (I haven't listened to the Parker yet, but I'm also not particularly familiar with his music.) Since I am a fan of Patrick Williams, I will express some brief disappointment that he has only a theme represented here, when the musician credits in the back make it clear that he composed an entire pilot score. As noted in the other thread on this release, however, David Shire fans needn't fret because the cool main and end titles for Tales of the Unexpected, included here, are all he wrote...he scored no episode proper.

I knew I loved the Goldsmith Barnaby Jones pilot score already of course, but I was shocked at just how much I loved 70s Bruce Broughton, particularly track 18. I would LOVE for Barnaby Jones to get a follow up stand alone 2 CD release of additional scores from this series, like Intrada did for Then Came Bronson after FSM put out a full disc of Duning and Melle in their TV Omnibus. That was a single season show whereas Barnaby Jones was so popular it lasted for EIGHT seasons (the most popular Quinn Martin production perhaps, by that measure), so maybe LLL would consider it after all three Quinn Martin Collections have come out and been wildly successful...(I hope?)

Aside from one other Bruce Broughton score, other exciting composers who scored at least one episode of the series include: Laurence Rosenthal, Tom "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes" Scott, Jeff "Support Your Local Sheriff!" Alexander, oh and two episode scores by the legend Hugo FREAKIN' Friedhofer! There are also a bunch of familiar TV composer names in the mix like Tatro, Markowitz, Riddle, Drasnin, Parker, Rubin, Kane, Romanis, and others. Plenty of material worthy of a follow up release, IMO.

My only immediate wish regarding this set though is for nice individual covers, if anyone is up for making them. I've split all of these up into their own albums in iTunes (yes, even the theme-only things) and it would be fantastic if I could get custom album art to go with them! I know my buddy Brad Wills has already done some neat custom art for Barnaby Jones ages ago, but that could use a slight re-do in light of this new release not being Goldsmith only.

Well, this QM-specific thread started by MV of LLL basically got treated as the official announcement thread, though I agree the thread title here is far superior and more searchable for the future...

The release was also discussed a good amount in this thread when it was originally announced on the slate:
https://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=134978&forumID=1&archive=0

But you're right...I can't find an official announcement thread from LLL on the day of the set's release, even though they also started a big TV music sale at the time. Very odd that they forgot to do that!

So...I've finished listening to the entire set now and I'm curious how other folks might rate their favorites...here's my ranking:

1. Barnaby Jones -- any surprise that the lone Goldsmith item is at the top of my list? It's just a superb score, and if you love the theme it gets a LOT of fantastic workout and variation throughout. This is not Winter Kill where the great theme largely gets forgotten about in the score proper. And the early Broughton score is really excellent, too! I reiterate my wish for more of this series' scoring to be released. It was the longest lived (and therefore probably most popular) Quinn Martin production, so I really hope that after these three Quinn Martin volumes come out, the powers that be consider a standalone 2 disc set of additional Barnaby Jones scoring from the likes of Laurence Rosenthal, Jeff Alexander, and Hugo Friedhofer! (And of course that other Broughton score, to boot.) Something along the lines of Intrada's superb 2 disc Then Came Bronson follow up to the TV Omnibus compilation.

2. Bert D'Angelo, Superstar -- this is just a theme by Patrick Williams, but WHAT a badass theme! So addictive I put it on repeat and it sticks in my head for hours afterwards. This is also my #1 disappointment about this set, because if you look at the back of the booklet the musican credits make it clear that Patrick Williams composed a whole pilot score which I would have loved to hear more of...I'm not saying it had to be released complete but that theme just made me hungry to hear MORE (like some development of it!) Totally unexpected since I'd never heard of the show (and the title makes it sounds stupid, to be frank) but definitely my second favorite thing on the set.

3. Dan August -- this is my favorite kind of Dave Grusin...so energetic and engaging. The second score I think I like even better than the first. Really exciting stuff. Not quite on the level of his Assignment: Vienna from the TV Omnibus for me, but then I'm a total sucker for the cimbalom which is used prominently throughout that, making it in fact my #1 favorite Dave Grusin work!

4. Most Wanted -- this isn't *quite* Mission: Impossible, but it is still prime, feature-quality Lalo Schifrin work that will delight even his casual fans!

5. Tales of the Unexpected -- while this is a very cool and catchy David Shire theme, it doesn't have the listen-to-it-on-repeat-and-never-tire-of-it value that the Patrick Williams theme for Bert D'Angelo does. Very glad it was included though, as apparently it was Shire's only work for Quinn Martin.

6. Caribe -- this Nelson Riddle main title was maybe the most...different(?) thing on the set. It took me by surprise and I kinda like it.

7. Cannon -- I listened to this last of all, because I found John Parker's work on the two Assignment: Vienna scores he wrote to pale in comparison to the much more stylish, energetic, and unique work on that series by Dave Grusin. What he wrote wasn't bad, but it was more serviceable that memorable and striking. Well...Cannon is a bit more memorable because of the tuba use I guess, but I'm still not wild about it. There *are* occasional highlight cues throughout both of his scores on this set, but personally I think a 12 minute selection of highlights from both scores would have been sufficient to cover his contribution, and I would have much preferred that space get used up by the Patrick Williams pilot score mentioned above.

8. The Manhunter -- This Duane Tatro main title was fine but I didn't find it memorable. I'm rating it last because at least the highlights of Parker's Cannon work stood out a bit more to me.

In conclusion: BUY THIS SET, people!

Great set with lots of variety. The Goldsmith stuff is top notch.

If I had to choose a gripe, it would be that they used the version with less synth for the main titles of Most Wanted. I would have gone with this one:

I really hope we keep getting more of this Universal TV stuff. It’s pure gold.
