SEASON 1:

Loads switch between English and German in each episode (probably to avoid copyright detection). I can't use CBS anymore for links to free videos because everything there re-directs to ParamountPlus, where you need an account to watch anything.

Attention readers: I am implementing a new system that is nothing more than a note to myself; for cues that I want to include in a suite, for now on I will denote them with ^ symbol. It has no special meaning to anyone else but myself. No, the lack of an up arrow symbol doesn't mean the cue is bad (it just may have too much SFX or FX for suite use or just isn't worth my time to edit and include). Hence forth this system will be in all future threads and pre-exiting threads that I go back to for missed episodes.



"Cocoon"
By: Morton Stevens
First Part: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6gjpoc
Second Part: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6gjpn6
https://ok.ru/video/2381222906550

Highlights:
  • 4:44 in.
  • 6:49 in.^(7:22)
  • 14:41 in.^
  • 20:17 in.^(20:30)
  • 28:42 in.^
  • 38:33 in.^
  • 48:53 in.^

    Second Part:
  • 16:37 in.
  • 24:28 in.
  • 28:41 in.

    An edited-down version of the cue when he is driving, is used in "Twenty-Four Karat Kill", again when he is driving. An additional percussion bit was tracked onto the opening on that edit. Also, parts of other cues from the pilot were also edited and tracked in.

    Part of cues were also tracked into "The Ways of Love" (right after the struggle in the elevator the uses start).

    The "By the Numbers" episode opening cue may be from here, too, but there is another episode after the pilot with a very similar cue. The episode also features other edited selections.

    The opening part of the opening cue from "Deathwatch" is also from the pilot.

    "Pray Love Remember, Pray Love Remember" tracks part of a cue in the closing cue.

    Another edited-down version of the driving music is again tracked for driving in "Face of the Dragon".

    "The Box" also tracks an edited-down version of the driving music, again for a driving scene, but this time not Lord driving.

    Once Upon a Time: Part 2" may contain some.

    "Not That Much Different" contains some as well, starting with the cue after the opening credits. A cue itself I can't say with 100% certainty was written for the pilot, since it sounds like his work on "Thriller". This episode also features cues tracked from other prior season one episodes, but off hand I can't name them. Possibly also another edited cue used later in the episode.

    "Six Kilos" might contain part of a quite cue.

    "The Big Kahuna" contains a little, including once again that "Thriller"-sounding cue.

    The track-job season two episode "Run, Johnny, Run" (a track-job episode) tracks he driving music right after the opening credits: https://ok.ru/video/2512849996470

    The season two episode "The Devil And Mr. Frog" used part of a cue starting during a boat rowing scene and lasting about three minutes.

    Around the end of the season two episode "Killer Bee" (a track-job episode), when a guy in a dark-blue shirt is running out of a building.

    The opening preview for the season two episode "Cry, Lie", contains score from the pilot.

    The truck tailing music from around the end of the season two episode "Nightmare Road".

    The season two finale "Kiss the Queen Goodbye" uses it after a commercial break for Dano and Steve running out a building and then driving (an edit job or two different cues from the pilot).

    Score from the pilot is also tracked into an episode of "The Wild Wild West" titled: "The Night of the Tycoons" (when snooping around a guy's stuff, and then again at 46:49 in after a guy says "We are free to leave for Mexico").

    "The Guarnerius Caper" (season three): edit of the driving music is tracked in.

    "The Ransom" (season three): the first 1:46.

    "Force of Waves" (S3): 12:08 in (and the cue eventually switches to that running music that opened another episode that Stevens scored). And some fight music around the end of the episode.

  • 36:55 in.

    Guest-starring Ricardo Montalban.

    When the woman opens the door and asks if she can help the man, in the episode "Yesterday Died And Tomorrow Won't Be Born", it's an outtro cue from this score.

    The chase music in "Deathwatch" after "Halt!" is shouted, is from this episode (about 34:00 into "Deathwatch").

    Also used twice in "Pray Love Remember, Pray Love Remember".

    "Along Came Joey": the alley attack music before the opening credits. Also used again in part at the end during the chase at the dock.

    "Once Upon a Time: Part 1": the outtro cue around the end, is that outtro cue from this score.

    "Not That Much Different": the cliff side climax.

    "Six Kilos": part of a cue used after a car door is closed and they walk into a house, about 10:00 in.

    "The Big Kahuna": About 12:10 in and stopping when a different cue -- an upbeat cue with guiro cuts in. Part of another cue about 20:05 in.

    Might be some in the end chase music of the season three track-job episode "The Last Eden".

    Some is also tracked into an action scene in "The Wild Wild West", episode: "The Night Of The Cossacks".

    I forgot to mention Stevens was nominated for an Emmy for the pilot score, so I've edited the post and included that and the other competition that year.

    It's interesting to note that the year before (1968) Lalo Schifrin was nominated for the MI episode "The Seal" (fans of the show will remember this is the one where the star of the segment was a cat). The twin irony is that not only is there no original Schifrin score in the episode (though the aforementioned "Heir Apparent" was a substantial original score effort by Schifrin), but season two was one of the rare seasons where Schifrin didn't work on the series. In the end, it didn't matter as the winner that year was Earle Hagen (for his third nominated "I Spy" score, "Laya"). Stevens was nominated as well, for the "Major Glory" ep of "Gunsmoke," in which he employed a unique orchestra: six trumpets, six horns and six trombones (and percussion).

    Continuing SEASON 1:




    "Pray Love Remember, Pray Love Remember"
    By: Morton Stevens

    Highlights:
  • 0:00 in.^
  • 21:45 in. Including a water chime.^
  • 28:33 in. And the cue after the commercial break.^(28:44/both)
  • 30:37 in.^(parts)
  • 33:18 in.^(parts)
  • 46:29 in.

    Stevens' soft arrangement of the series main theme, heard so far two or three times now in episodes, reminds me of the soft island theme from Kaper's score to "Mutiny on the Bounty" (heck, Kaper would have been a great choice of composer for an episode or two).



    "King of the Hill"
    By: Harry Geller
    https://ok.ru/video/2381305088694

    Highlights:
  • 4:35 in.
  • 12:43 in.^
  • 23:04 in.^(closing)
  • 34:40 in.^

    Very disappointing step down from Stevens. You may notice that three of the cues are short dramatic outtros.

    "Up Tight"
    By: Morton Stevens

  • About 25:58 in.^(about 27:40 in)

    There is some interestingly twisted music here and there from Stevens. It's a new side of him for me.

    There's some debate whether Shores composed any original music for "Face of the Dragon" as a number of the cues are from an S4 "Wild Wild West" ep, one Shores scored, "Night of the Kraken." My thinking is that S2's "Forty Feet High and It Kills!" was Shores first score (at least, complete/nearly complete score) specifically composed for the series.

    By the way, Justin, one of the more notable cues heard in "Face of the Dragon" (the piano/cello thing with muted horn) was from Stevens' score for "No Blue Skies," a segment I recall you weren't able to view.

    Highlights:
  • 0:07 in.^(parts)
  • 8:35 in.
  • 12:37 in. Another cue that strikes me as a John Parker piece (I'll have to compare the two to make sure it's not the same cue).^ *
  • 16:15 in. and^(both/parts)
  • 47:30 in.^

    * = He did exactly what I was thinking of doing to "chick-y baby".

    In the season one episode of "Hawaii Five-O" "Once Upon a Time: Part 2", when McGarret and the librarian are doing research together, the score playing there is a re-working of cues from his score to the failed second pilot to "Call to Danger" (1967). It's about 95% the same.

    This was, of course, not the first cue he re-worked from "Call to Danger". He also re-worked the theme music into a cue, which was on the old album that FSM put out.

    You know, if you took away the music and the up-close shots and just had a wide shot angle of them standing still and turning their heads and looking at each other, they would looke dumbfucks.



    "Just Lucky, I Guess"
    By: Richard Shores

    Highlights:
  • 31:08 in.
  • 35:34 in. Around four minutes long.

    On a set of season two scoring, I'm not sure I'd include either cue. If there was room, I'd only consider the second one.

    There was barely any score in the episode. What you see listed in the highlights, is most of it.

    "King Kamehameha Blues"
    By: Mundell Lowe
    https://ok.ru/video/2512839314102

    This is the only effort by Lowe for the series.

    Highlights:

  • 2:14 in. Possibly joining a cue already in progress. Kind of hard to tell what was a score cue and if it continued into this.
  • 2:53 in.^
  • 10:38 in.
  • 14:23 in.*
  • 24:51 in. Joining a long uneventful and boring cue in progress for the good part. Yes, if I were producing a set of season two scoring, I would lop off those opening minutes for this.^
  • 28:07 in.
  • 33:05 in.^
  • 45:22 in.

    * = He was told he had "Exactly three minutes". Meanwhile, over five minutes later it's still going on and the episode goes to commercial break. Then over six more minutes after the commercial break.

    For the guys here: 34:55 in. You're welcome.

    Though Mort Stevens is credited with the score for S2's "The Singapore File" (on imdB as well) the episode includes a number of cues by Shores, the teaser pursuit scene, flight to Singapore montage (cue cited at 6:06) being two salient examples. Also, the sweet guitar "love theme" heard in the scenes while McGarrett and Nicole are aboard the freighter was written (for the episode) by (an uncredited) Don Ray. I'm dubious Stevens (or Shores for that matter) composed anything for the episode...but it's a very good "track" job of their respective material.

    I need to take another look/listen to "Leopard on the Rock" (also credited to Stevens).

    5-O FYI: In this episode, McGarrett informs Nicole that he'll arrive in Singapore within 10 hours. Last time I checked there are no direct Singapore via Honolulu flights (most go through Tokyo, and it takes a lot longer). Then again, Pan AM may have had such a flight then (1969).

    Thanks for letting me know. Any time anybody recognizes a cue from another episode, feel free to let me know (it would be great if the episode it's from is remembered); I can use parts from other episodes the cues are used in, to creates better edits and remove sections that had FX/SFX and replace it with clean sections.

    Very cool. By the way, some time next week in my review batches, there are two scores in particular that I had to give some praise to -- one Ray effort and one Stevens effort (which I'm 100% positive you'll be in agreement with me over).

    Also, some of the “Hawaiian” source music by Don Ray is always a pleasure to hear, especially during seasons 3-6. Mort Stevens contributed a couple that were used during seasons 1, 6, 8, 9, 10 and 12.

    Shores also did some of these. The Hawaiian guitar band music heard on the plane in the finale of S4's "Three Thousand Crooked Miles to Honolulu" (one of favorite 5-O scores) being one that he did.

    Yep, I agree. Another great score.

    It is almost a crime to not have these scores released.

    No arguments, here. Well, it took three volumes of disks to contain the thirty or so "Star Trek" scores. Mort, alone, scored nearly double that number of "5-O" episodes. One set of three disks of his music would be tough because there's no bad score in the bunch with some being, IMO, among the finest composed for series television. Personally, I would want all of his S1-2, 4, 6 and 9 and 12 scores. That would make me "very happy camper" to see this (along with Shores S2, 4, 6-7 shows, all of Bruce Broughton's scores from S6 - 9 and 12, Don Ray's S4 - 6 eps). Now, most of the 5-O scores aren't as lengthy as those composed for "Star Trek," so the way to go might be to do "suites" (as Mort had on his 1980s demo). So you might drop things such as the act-out freeze-frame "wave" cues (though a few, such as the ones composed by Bruce for "McGarrett is Missing" are pretty exciting). This said, you would want to include at least a few complete scores: Full Fathom Five, Highest Castle, Deepest Grave, Hookman, Nine Dragons, The Bells Toll at Noon (talking Mort's stuff). If the set sold well, then you might do a Vol 2 with music by the other composers who worked on the series (Cacavas, Ernest Gold, Scharf, Steiner, DeBenedictis, Immel, Rugolo, Romanis) as there are still plenty of good scores there (particularly Debenedictis' "Skyline Killer"). But, for a Vol. 1, Stevens, Shores, Broughton, Ray.
