Much like Sony's recent revelation that the mighty John Williams has been leading a double life all these years, composing film scores to some of the most famous and successful films EVER MADE...AND...playing his guitar in classical circles on the sly (sky?), Jimmy Hoffa, before he went to ground (hoho) wrote* a few music scores in honour of his OGGY OGGY OGGY-ness.
I haven't heard the Newman score or the Robertson one, but seeing as F.I.S.T has always been one of my favourite soundtracks ever, and certainly my favourite Conti, I'm confident in going for the Bill.
I'm struggling to choose between FIST & HOFFA. The Bill Conti is the more rounded score, with a gorgeous Main Theme and quite a bit of variety within the score too. HOFFA'S Main Theme is outstanding though. One of the best I've ever heard (no wonder it launched a thousand trailers) but the score overall is not as interesting as the Conti (unless the new expanded LLL edition is a revelation). So I've got FIST as the best score overall, but HOFFA has the best theme!!
