SEASON 2:

Season one has no composers credited.

All scores this season are credited to Arthur Morton.

The catchy theme is by Jerry Goldsmith, who was under contract by another studio, so he snuck in quietly and did the theme and let Michael Hennagin take the credit. There is no shortage of website still erroneously claiming "Michael Hennagin" is just a name Goldsmith used and are apparently unaware he was a real person.

I'll leave it to Yavar to let us know about Jerry Goldsmith involvement outside the theme. All I can say is a website that no longer exists, listed three episodes in season one by composers who aren't' credited, so I'll double back and do those when done with this season. And I recall Yavar mention in passing it turns out Jerry did some score (I presume some original stuff to be tracked as needed).

Somebody (not credited) re-recorded the opening and closing credits, adding a beat to the end credits and making minor changes. Based on IMDb and ASCAP, I assume it was Arthur.

  • 11:23 in.
  • 14:26 in. Joining a cue already in progress. And after the commercial break (goes on for a few minutes).



    In terms of orchestration and some writing ideas, I can hear Jerry here and there; I think Arthur Morton had more than a passing affect on Jerry's writing (assuming, like Hennagin -- according to the old FSM article -- he did more and ghostwrote cues on scores).

    That's it for today. Tomorrow I will probably finish the series.

    Oh, neat! I'm glad to discover that this series did actually have some good music written for it! I only watched the pilot episode (to see if Jerry had scored it, because Jerry Goldsmith Online's TV credits page claimed he did). Jens and I both concluded that Jerry had nothing at all to do with the pilot score because it sounded nothing like him, didn't use his theme, and was on the whole very nondescript music.

    Season one has no composers credited.

    We had suspected it was scored with a music library or something. If you do listen through any of season 1, I'd be curious to know about musical highlights because there were literally none worth pointing out in the pilot episode, IMO.

    The catchy theme is by Jerry Goldsmith, who was under contract by another studio, so he snuck in quietly and did the theme and let Michael Hennagin take the credit. There is no shortage of website still erroneously claiming "Michael Hennagin" is just a name Goldsmith used and are apparently unaware he was a real person.

    Michael Hennagin certainly *was* a real person, and Jerry certainly *was* aware...because Hennagin was not only a fellow composer but also his brother-in-law, at the time! smile Here is the Goldsmith Odyssey episode where we discussed Black Saddle and these details...
    http://goldsmithodyssey.buzzsprout.com/159614/735335-episode-8-fifties-roundup

    Here's the full Burlingame TV interview he conducted with Goldsmith, which we quoted in that podcast with Jerry confirming his involvement and why he credited his brother-in-law as he was under contract to CBS at the time:
    https://interviews.televisionacademy.com/interviews/jerry-goldsmith#interview-clips

    I would highly recommend you check out that interview if you haven't, to explore more TV credits that might be worth investigating on your part!

    Michael Hennagin's attempt at a Hollywood career in the late 50s and early 60s was fairly short-lived, though he had a few credits including supplying a few cues to an episode of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. This is why Jerry Goldsmith is sometimes erroneously credited with an additional VttBotS episode in addition to "Jonah and the Whale" even though he had nothing to do with it; some people assumed that J. Michael Hennagin was a pseudonym for Jerry because of the Black Saddle theme. smile

    I'll leave it to Yavar to let us know about Jerry Goldsmith involvement outside the theme. All I can say is a website that no longer exists, listed three episodes in season one by composers who aren't' credited, so I'll double back and do those when done with this season. And I recall Yavar mention in passing it turns out Jerry did some score (I presume some original stuff to be tracked as needed).

    Not to my knowledge, though I'll be checking out the cue highlights you pointed out to see if anything strikes me as being written by Jerry. But in the Burlingame interview, he didn't take credit for doing anything besides the theme itself.

    Somebody (not credited) re-recorded the opening and closing credits, adding a beat to the end credits and making minor changes. Based on IMDb and ASCAP, I assume it was Arthur.

    THIS is interesting, if you're saying the second season of the show has a new and different arrangement of the theme than the first season. I wish we'd known that before our podcast and might have played that other version! Of course, as it is, we already played three versions (the original from the pilot episode, a later Herschel Burke Gilbert cover on the Dick Powell Presents LP, and finally a surf rock cover from The Revelairs in 1964). There are at least two other cover versions we did not play on that podcast, one of which is available on CD here (this album twofer also includes the cover version of The Lineup which we *did* play on the podcast):
    https://www.amazon.com/Impact-Double-BUDDY-MORROW/dp/B00005LZPB
    And the other of which has only been on LP, with Bud Wattles & His Orchestra:
    https://www.discogs.com/Bud-Wattles-His-Orchestra-Themes-From-The-Hip/release/6159649

    I'd be really curious to hear what the latter sounds like, if anyone has a copy of that LP... mail (at) goldsmithodyssey (dot) com.



    The Revelairs 60s cover is really damn cool IMO...give it a listen if you haven't yet. It's also available on CD, here, if anyone wants it:
    https://www.amazon.com/Rare-Surf-Vol-South-Bands/dp/B00000B2J6/

    Amazing how many times this theme was covered in the five years following its composition, especially considering it wasn't even credited to its composer initially and was written for a show that only lasted two seasons! Kinda seems like, judging from the (at least) four cover versions it received, THIS was Jerry's first hit TV theme, pre-dating Dr. Kildare. embarrassment

    SEASON 2:
    Season one has no composers credited.
    All scores this season are credited to Arthur Morton.


    Love Morton's music for the dark series, BUS STOP, which is echoed at the start of the first episode above, "Freebooters." Unfortunately noone seems to have saved his recordings, allegedly left with Jerry.

    Yavar:

    I compared the opening themes just now and I don't hear anything different, however the end credits sounds re-recorded and every so slightly different.




    Finishing SEASON 2:




    "Mr. Simpson"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RjkbRx5JgE

    Highlights:
  • 2:54 in. Joining a cue already in progress.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aN3QQmdJrIE

    Highlights:
  • 2:28 in.
  • 6:20 in.
  • 14:07 in.



    "The Indian Tree"

    No link provided since I cited nothing.

    Highlights:
  • Nothing.



    "A Case of Slow"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vF4ecdYkdeA

    Highlights:
  • 9:54 in.
  • 22:05 in. Well, that was very pleasant.



    "The Penalty"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbrxKuFcXY8

    Highlights:
  • 3:00 in. The theme from the pleasant cue from the previous episode, re-appears, followed by a big brass arrangement of it.
  • 4:45 in.
  • About 6:07 in.
  • 9:29 in.
  • 11:07/12:38 in.
  • 14:27 in.

    Overall, this is the score I connected with the most.



    "End of the Line"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0kjLCEJDt0

    Highlights:
  • 19:42 in.

    Supposedly there might be uncredited stuff by Goldsmith in this.

    SEASON 1:

    The following episodes may, I stress MAY contain original score by the composer listed under each. And/or it may be tracked with material by the composer.

    I think my source was an old copyright website which doesn't appear to be online anymore.



    "Client: Travers"
    Supposedly by: Jerry Goldsmith
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4QytrghdVA

    Highlights:
  • 5:51 in. This has to be original material; this theme is heard in multiple episodes of season two.
  • 7:45/8:12 in.



    "Client: Tagger"
    Supposedly by: Morton Stevens
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vmK2NkPZRE

    Highlights:
  • 1:52 in.
  • 9:41 in.
  • 12:43 in.
  • 16:23 in.
  • 18:29 in.



    "Client: Martinez"
    Supposedly by: Michael Hennagin
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGEy1N20cWQ

    Highlights:
  • 5:30 in.
  • 6:31 in. There's that theme from season two again.
  • 16:48 in. Short but sweet.
  • 14:48 in.
  • 22:23 in.

    17:35 in: LOL, international what? Can anybody make that jargon out?
