Hi guys,

Just heard the main title cue for Jerry Fieldings "The Big Sleep". Really loved it!

I have never really gotten into Fielding, finding him inferior to Schifrin or others of the same style. But if anyone out there could recommend any Fielding music similar to The Big Sleep main title, I would very much appreciate it.

Others will no doubt chime in with suggestions, but in the meantime you can peruse this thread:

My all time Fielding favourite is Straw Dogs, but not for all tastes...

If you like The Big Sleeps main titles, there is another version, Hunters Are For Killing.

Killer elite is probably the closest

Killer elite is probably the closest

After Hunters are for Killing, of course.

The Outfit
Advise and Consent
Straw Dogs
Lawman
Blackbird
Scorpio
Chato's Land
Escape from Alcatraz
Hunters are for Killing

Fielding and Schifrin are quite different from each other. Quite.

I would recommend watching the films Fielding scored, so you can get the full Fielding Effect.

For some peculiar reason, no one has yet mentioned THE WILD BUNCH, to me his best effort. (The film was pretty good too!!)

It's a great work in-film, but on album I prefer other western scores of his, such as Lawman and Alfredo Garcia...

I haven't really clicked with Fielding yet for most of the popular scores. But I really like Straw Dogs and Black Bird.

Are you questioning its use or its meaning?

Being two important and respectable names, I consider the term of comparison inappropriate.
I would never say Newman inferior to Rozsa. That's all.
