I just heard the Bronislau Kaper main title.

Wow! Ecstatic, Eddy Duchin-esque piano behind an orchestra. What fun and what a find!

I seriously doubt there'll be a three-disc set of Martin Davich's ER music in... (does mental mathematics) ...2052!

Enjoying this very much, especially after sampling a few episodes beforehand! One error in the liner notes though, regarding "Shining Image". Edward Andrews plays Suzanne Pleshette's brother, not Edward Albert.

Anyone else enjoys this set as much as I do? The Goldsmith scores on CD1 are among the best I've ever heard from him. The entire production of this lovely boxset is top-notch.

Now that Season 1 of the series is out on DVD it gives me a chance to experience the scores for this set in their proper context and to go back and then appreciate them more as they're presented on the CD set. First little disappointment though is to discover there was no room for Jeff Alexander's score for the Season 1 Christmas episode "Season To Be Jolly" which having just seen for the first time tonight, I can now rate as the finest Christmas episode of a TV series I've ever seen next to the great Dragnet "Christmas Story".

I've been revisiting select scores on this FSM set and concluding that it is highly underrated among the many classic TV series scores we've seen released in the past decade or so. There's a lot of winning scores by some great composers and I love the jazzy and blues-inflected cues.

A GREAT release! Kudos to Lukas for imagining it and then making it a reality!

I'm not sure if they ever used Jerry's theme (and I confess still need to pick up this CD) but I'm always reminded of The Muppet Show sketches of Veterinarian's Hospital with Rowlf as Dr. Bob in “The continuing storrr-ry of a quack who’s gone to the dogs….”

Whoa, great (and fast) find Justin! I’ll check it out today. Looks like IMDb has literally no info about it (I went there to check and see if that was Robert Redford in this cast):

Interesting how directly connected this is to the film and radio series, right down to the Barrymore portrait, and then how disconnected the successful pilot was, more a proper reboot.

Yavar, I submitted the unaired pilot as episode 1.0 "Unaired Pilot" to IMDb about an hour ago; it should be up by now. I submitted all but two of three crew credits, so other wise the rest of the crew, and all the of the cast, are submitted.

Weird.
A couple evenings ago I watched Johnny Belinda for the first time and early on found myself thinking there's good old reliable Lew Ayres playing a doctor again. And now this pilot of which I was never aware. Yep, what a nice nod to Lionel B./Dr. Gillespie. Of course, I grew up with Chamberlain & Massey (and Goldsmith smile); Ayres & Barrymore would come much later. Still, and to this day, b&w made for seamless transitions for these kind of originals and follow-ups. Don't know why, maybe monochrome on the screen just stuck out in an otherwise real Kodachrome existence.
Double that weird.

By the way, incase people forgot, the FSM CD includes score and the theme from the unaired pilot.

The standout music for the set for me is from "Tyger Tyger" (I assume Part 2)*. Kicking in at 1:36.



Cue viewers blubbing over Kildare's broken heart/hot bikini-clad Yvette Mimieux drowning (delete according to inclination.)
*I hadn't been born when it first aired and when the BBC last gave Dr. Kildare a repeat run it was only episodes from the final season.

Good start! There's just so little out there about this one, which is weird, since it's been on the Warner Archives release of the Lew Ayres films since 2014.

Clark, our cohost on The Goldsmith Odyssey, is positive this unaired pilot has a young Robert Redford in an uncredited role, in advance of him starring in an early episode of the series proper the following year.

And I did submit Courage's credit to the right section -- Composers; some idiot at IMDb improperly moved it to Music Department.

The one thing unfortunately that I wish was in this set but wasn't included is Jeff Alexander's score for my favorite classic TV Christmas episode, "Season To Be Jolly."
