I'm thrilled to see that a bunch of Joe Harnell scores for The Incredible Hulk and The Bionic Woman have appeared for download on the BuySoundtrax site. https://buysoundtrax.myshopify.com/collections/digital-download-releases?page=1

I've wanted the CDs for ages, but they were getting crazy expensive. So having them digitally is perfect.

So firstly I wanted to flag the above for others.

Secondly, I notice that some of the albums are on Spotify also, but not all. Ford: do you think the other Harnell albums, recently added, will appear on Spotify. Or are they not on there now because of a rights issue, and will therefore never be on.

Many thanks for your steady stream of great releases, and especially for the digital option.

This is great, thanks for the head's up! I have the Harnell and V CDs but there's a lotta good stuff that I wouldn't mind having for the discounted digital price (with immediate delivery).

And you'll love the Harnell albums. Such great music.

More Joe Harnell music in the world is a good thing.

A few of the Incredible Hulk / Bionic Woman / V albums have also popped up at HD Tracks. But the prices are far better at BSX.

I bought all The Bionic Woman releases on CD ages ago, when Scott M told me they exist (it's a small world we're talking about), but it's great to see this music still exists in public. Imagine if you were all set with your vintage James Bond soundtracks, but no new fan could ever get them.

My two favorite tracks, absolute musts in my book, are:
• Jamie's Theme (6:41)
• Suite from "Sister Jamie" (7:14)

They're both on this album:

Yeah, they spelled Jaime wrong, but it's STUNNING how much pleasure is sitting there for 99 cents. And that goes double for existing fans who liked the Harnell sound on TV.

There are just eight tracks on that album, each priced at 99c, but if you buy the album it's $8.95. Obviously ~$1 isn't a big difference in the grand scheme of things, but does buying it as an album get you anything more to justify the increased cost (e.g., digital booklet/liner notes), or is it just that BSX line-prices all their digital albums at $8.95?

When I saw the 'Bionic Woman Collection' I assumed it was just a compilation of tracks from the other releases they sell. Is it an album of completely different music from the others?

I listen to The Return Of Bigfoot Pt. 2 more often than I care to admit.

If you buy the four main Bionic Woman CDs, you're getting the full-length scores for those episodes. The "Collection" has shorter suites from them.

But these two sensational tracks, my favorites, are only found on the "Collection" album:

• Jamie's Theme (6:41)
• Suite from "Sister Jamie" (7:14)

I do believe those two tracks are from "The Film Music Of Joe Harnell" - an old 2 CD composer promo that contained several gems, including Harnell's score for the Alien Nation pilot movie.

That's right, and that 2-disc set is no longer being offered as such. My main Harnell interest by far is The Bionic Woman, but I never objected to buying The Film Music release. There was a LOT of value in it. It was manufactured on CDR, but I got the music and that was what counted. It had the Lonely Man theme from The Incredible Hulk, and even Joe's logo music for United Artists, the cue that opened the original theatrical version of Rocky III and many other films of the period. You don't hear that wonderful logo anymore because UA got swallowed up by MGM and they changed all the movies (which I hate). It was an INCREDIBLY dramatic and important-sounding opener for Rocky III, and now it's gone.

I don't know about later releases, but the original release wasn't CD-R - it's a proper, factory-pressed CD set.

Yes, I can confirm this. smile It was factory pressed. I've bought it back in 1991 from Luc Van de Ven's Soundtrack! shop. Later editions of some Harnell promos were reissued as CD-R - or they were CD-R right from the beginning.

I got the 2002 edition, with identical content, but the black cover design and made on CDR:

Doesn't matter. The music is the same, and the physical discs are just a souvenir nowadays.

My four volumes of The Bionic Woman are all pressed CDs, of course. I don't think they were ever issued on CDR.
