I have no clue what they are, and I'm terrible at guessing, but all three clips sound fantastic and now I want to hear the rest of the scores. Can't wait to find out what they are!

Would be nice if new composer collection was dedicated to Terry Plumeri.

BTW samples sounds great.

First cue sounds alot like Dennis McCarthy (think Star Trek Generations).
2nd cue sounds British, not Laurie Johnson, more like Michael Lewis but you haven't released him before.

All three samples are great! I can tell you guys for sure none are by Conti, I have all of his music memorized and those samples aren't his.

I would really be down for more Philippe Sarde! (I haven't listened to the clips, but I still would like to throw that out there.) I have started really delving into Sarde's work. Some of it I could do without, but I find a lot of it very wonderful. Hoping for a better sounding Tess and maybe a re-issue of Quest for Fire would be nice. Missed out on that one.

Oh and also Highpoint by Christopher Young would be nice.

That second cue sounds familiar to me, but I can't place it. It does feel like a 1980s orchestral score for a British comedy. Of the composers released on Dragon's, I would guess Howard Blake or Ken Thorne.

The second one sounds a bit Ron Goodwin-ish in his historic mode.

Not disagreeing, but the clue is it's by a composer previously released by the label (which he hasn't been).

I'd love to release HIGHPOINT but the only way that happens if to pry the masters from Chris's dead cold fingers and even then I doubt he'd let go of them

Thank you for that information, Ford. It seems that Mr Young is rather protective shall we say. I lament not getting an expanded Hellraiser.

By the way I love your label, and am thankful for many releases. I particularly like the Brian May Collection and play it quite a lot. I also sprang for the Australian compilation.

No Conti this go around.

But trust me, the folks are in this batch are really good.

Wow. I don't often get these right, but I know precisely what 'too delightful for words' cue is from! I'm not sure if I'm supposed to actually say the title on here as I don't want to spoil the surprise. But I heard the cue last night and thought...that's SO familiar. Woke up this morning and I know what it is for sure.

Btw, one of the posts above does indeed mention the correct composer.

@pooter: than name itsmile
I have no clue ..all great listening but the second and third one are great...
1st one sounds like YOUNG.
2 nd is a very harmonic one in the vein of RON GOODWIN..the third one sounds a bit like BROUGHTON...very colorful like in the high days of melodic writing and very theme driven ..awesome

In the past, Ford Thaxton mentioned The Lady and the Highwayman being on his wish list, so mayhaps the 2nd sample is from Laurie Johnson's late-80s TV-movie score?

Samples sound nice. Don't have a clue what they're from.

Sadly No..

We just don't have enough Laurie Johnson available at this time

I'd love to do LADY AND THE HIGHWAYMEN, I'd also kill to do ISLAND OF THE ALIVE as well.

4 CD set of THE. AVENGERS (Both Emma Peel and Tara King) would be so cool

Maybe someday.
