Does anyone here have this (promo) album featuring scores like The Blob, Dark Skies, 9.5 Weeks, Contaminated Man and Above Suspicion?

Never even heard of it. I dearly love Departures From The Northern Wasteland, but to be honest his later work, Xcept One, The Blob, Dark Skies and so on have done nothing at all for me.

Has he done any scoring work that has that Berlin school vibe ?

Would love to hear his scores from THE WRAITH and CLASS OF 1999.

I really love parts of Xcept One, but I agree that The Blob isn't particularly interesting.

His score to Deadly Encounter (1982, co-composed with Fred Karlin) has some Berlin School elements:

I saw The Wraith years ago, I don't really remember much of Hoenig's and J. Peter Robinson's score.

A shame that no score was featured on the album.

I just received an offer from a seller who wanted 85 US dollars for the Hoenig compilation CD.

Crazy or what?

Well, I don't know...maybe it's a collector's item and that's the going rate?

It's indeed a collector's item. The price is now $75. I have offered 60...

No, 68$ isn´t much if it´s rare and you want it real much...

It's rare and I want it much, but I still find it extremely expensive.

I just received this album. It runs for 31 minutes and is called

300 MPH & 21 Minutes Into The Future.

It features two tracks by Tangerine Dream (Streethawk) and 9 tracks by Hoenig.

It is actually a cancelled album from the Ricochet Dream label, so it's extremely scarce.

Wow, surprisingly short running time, can you supply track titles and timings maybe? A nice mini review once you've had time to digest

Hoenig, IMO, had only a moment in time that made me care: Xcept One. His 'Blob' work is extremely incidental and, as you said, not very interesting at all. Sadly the majority of his work does not reflect the Berlin School elements of Tangerine Dream.

FB...maybe you should dive into some new Andy Pickford.

My brother had introduced me to Departure From The Northern Wasteland back in 78n or 79, whenever the LP was out, and I was mesmerized. This was actually a year or so before I had even heard of TD. The album instantly became a favorite and I wore out a few LP copies before hunting down the then-hard-to-find CD in the 90’s.

So when Xcept One came out it was a huge disappointment, none of that liquid Berlin school influence was there, the album might have gotten half a dozen plays before it went to the bottom of the closet. Then again, The Blob left me cold as well, as did Dark Skies.

With an album as successful as Departure, I do wonder why he’d never returned to that sound afterwards. Everything after Departure , for me, has been generic and uninspired.

Xcept One is surely among his best things, yes, perhaps his very best.

I have only one Pickford album, Maelstrom from 1995. Still a good album, Cathedral is great:

1. TD - Streethawk 3:20
sounded like the version from Le Parc

2. TD - Streethawk Radio Remix 3:07
a bit cheesy

3-11 Michael Hoenig - Motion Picture And TV Suite - Berlin 2010 Remix

3. The Blob - Main Title 3:20
quite nice, haven't checked if it's the same as on the LaLa Blob disc

4. Above Suspicion - Going For It 4:20
rather generic-sounding, suspense music

5. 9.5 Weeks - Apartment Ambience 1.40
nice and relaxing ambient

6. Above Suspicion - The Shooting 2:18
more suspense stuff

7. Contaminated Man - Train Station 2:14
action-material, nothing special

8. Above Suspicion - Polygraph Test 1:04
see 6

9. Dark Skies - Crop Circles 2:39
not on Dark Skies soundtrack, quite good, thematic and exciting

10. The Vertical Rotating Horizon (Live Edit) 6:37
live Tokyo 1984 with Don Preston, originally on Infinite Horizon compilation, minimalism meets Berlin School

11. Max Headroom - Main Title 1:09
enjoyable 80s uptempo theme
