I forgot to say: Out favorite mystery person, Fish Man, has several suites of scoring ripped from the show on his page:

Including the Gil Melle TV movies which I was not able to cover. And a number of suites to other Melle scores.

Out of curiosity, has it been confirmed the scores for Six Million Dollar Man even exist?

I don't think we've heard a word about it, for the studio vaults or the composers' personal tapes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oliver_Nelson#Breakthrough_and_afterwards

"On June 25, 2019, The New York Times Magazine listed Oliver Nelson among hundreds of artists whose material was reportedly destroyed in the 2008 Universal Studios fire."

I hope it was only his jazz album tapes that were burned up, and not his television scores. But Universal wouldn't tell us about it either way. The studios always play down their losses after every vault fire, to the point of not being entirely honest about it.

In theory, Oliver Nelson's estate could do what Joe Harnell did, and sell us a wonderful set of CDs from the composer's own tapes. But it's also possible that Nelson's widow went out to the garage in late-1975 and said "I want to park my car in here. All these dusty boxes can go in the trash." We don't know, but in my opinion that's very possible.

So it could be that all TSMDM tapes exist, or that none of them do.
