I'm serious, I think there should also be a FILM SONG MONTHLY!

Hey Henry, cool that you keep exploring other composers. I admit I'm not to familiar with his body of work, I'll need to check out his music. I really need to explore other composers myself. I know I need to seek out a lot more Rachel Portman!

Hi solium! Yeah, I'm having a great time exploring other composers, Mancini, Hamlisch and Poledouris so far. Btw, when this pandemic is over we should have some beers my friend!smile


Why wait?! Drink up buddy!

I'm also a fan of film songs (particularly those based on "love themes"), especially from the 1960s. The love ballad movie songs of the '70s aren't everybody's cuppa, but I tend to like them, especially if the music is by Hamlisch, Francis Lai, Michel Legrand, Charles Fox, etc.

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME is my second favorite Bond soundtrack, FOR YOUR EYES ONLY being my favorite. I also love Barry, but it's nice to see other composers have a crack at Bond too.

Another early Hamlisch soundtrack LP I played a lot is "The April Fools" which obviously has the title song composed by Burt Bacharach. But it's Hamlisch's instrumentals and songs that make this soundtrack a keeper. Chief among them is the song "La La La" performed by Mongo Santamaria - it sounds like it belongs on the Barbarella soundtrack. Another song is "Sugar Kite" performed by a group called California - it sounds like a song that Jefferson Airplane would do.

Then there's the few instrumentals, notably Hamlisch's "I Remember the Rain", tender and romantic. The other is "Peter's Pad" which is perfect groovy lounge music.

This is a hit and miss soundtrack with some dialogue tracks, but most of it is worth a listen

Henry, when you're ready to discover another composer check out Lee Holdridge. Way under appreciated and under represented.

Really wish his music for the Devil and Max Devlin was available on CD. There were two songs that were just tremendous. I think they were sung by Julie Budd.

Julie Budd sings Any Fool Could See in pretty good quality on YouTube. It's side 2 of a single. The other song from Devil and Max Devlin is Roses and Rainbows, side 1 of that promo single.

I just got the cd Johnny Mathis BETTER TOGETHER: THE DUET ALBUM for the song THE LAST TIME I FELT LIKE THIS. It's a great song by Hamlisch.

Does anybody know why "The Devil and Max Devlin" never had a soundtrack release? Or why Julie Budd's songs have never had a commercial release? I've never been able to find them.

Today I got D.A.R.Y.L. but haven't listened to it yet. I'm still waiting on THE APRIL FOOLS and THE SWIMMER.

A little gem by Marvin Hamlisch is the grandiose "Welcome" written for the opening ceremonies of the Los Angeles Olympics.
A 4:30+ outstanding overture conducted by Jack Elliott in 1984
