My holy grail of Holdridge's, "Mr. Mom", has yet to be released in any form (Intrada??). Anyway, are there any released scores of his that really stand out? Signature 80s style? Upbeat? I am open to suggestions.

El pueblo del Sol, Into thin air and of course, The beastmaster are very great.

Beauty and the Beast: Of Love and Hope (1989) is a great CD.

My favorite is Buffalo Girls. Wonderful, rousing score. Examples are in the thread listed below.

Probably the closest to what you're asking for (signature 80s style, upbeat) is SPLASH.
It's grandly orchestral, with a gorgeous Love Theme, but also features light pop rhythm arrangements popular for the time, not unlike MR MOM.
There's so much of his stuff unreleased it's a crime.
Amongst the many things I'd love to see released is the London LP rerecording of SPLASH, a much fuller and broader recording (Royal Philharmonic) than the lighter Hollywood studio film session.

Mine too, Joanie. The Great Ride is one of my all time favorite tracks.

We had an extensive Lee Holdridge recommendations thread not to long ago. Of course I can't find it.
Most of his work is solid.

Charles Gerhardt recordings with the London Symphony Orchestra are a must-have too, originally released on Varèse Sarabande in 1985:

https://www.discogs.com/fr/Lee-Holdridge-Charles-GerhardtLondon-Symphony-Orchestra-Digital-Premiere-Recordings-From-The-Films-O/release/10511339

It has been reissued on Citadel (in 1994 and 2004) and Buysoundtrax (in 2017).

You can listen to the full album on YouTube:

I would add Holdridge Conducts Holridge as essential as the others listed here

I was hoping that Dragon's Domain would have released a Volume 2 after their Lee Holdridge Collection Volume 1 a few years ago ,but it doesn't seem like anything is in the works unfortunately.

They do have an expanded edition of Old Gringo in the works.
They mentioned it last year.
Hopefully it will be unveiled in the coming months.

I love a lot of Lee's work.

My Lee Holdridge Holy Grail is still his wonderful score from FRENCH POSTCARDS (1979)

Hopefully someday my dream will come true with it's CD Release and as an extra added bonus will include all those cool French Versions of 60's and 70's American Songs.

The rights/royalties and logistics behind all those songs, zoob, is probably the reason it's never been heard from before!!
That, or there ain't no tapes frown
