I'm in on the Munsters . Who ever thought we'd hear the music from that show !
I wish we could get the soundtrack to the Andy Griffith Show (beyond the scant disc available).
Words on the streets say that a possible volume 2 of The Wild Wild West soundtrack may pop-up before 2020.
Would absolutely LOVE to get my hands on a Richard Shores (and Morton Stevens and Bruce Broughton and Don B. Ray) collection of HAWAII FIVE-O scores someday, but I believe there may be some kind of legal wrangle with the Leonard Freeman estate and CBS on this.
One TV series that had a beautiful soundtrack was Timmy and Lassie,
I'd buy it in a second if it ever came to be.
Just recently bought the original soundtrack to The Rifleman...fantastic.
Twilight Zone remains my holy grail, however comments from LaLaLand suggest it's probably not going to happen for some arcane reason (the master tapes being locked up at UCLA is my guess).
Richard Shores’ score for “The Night of the Eccentrics” was so good that its action-packed cue entitled “Mighty Titan” was tracked down to season 3 (see “The Night of the Legion of Death”) and even used for the official CBS season 2 promo trailer.
The CBS Season 2 Promo
Notice the veiled refence to the main titles from Gunsmoke during the showdown between Jim and Artie!
I'd get a soundtrack of The Streets of San Francisco if there ever was one!
if you're referring to the '59-'64 series, the original soundtrack collection was released on CD about 20 years ago.
I have it and its great listening.
I own it too but it's not complete despite the fact it's a 4-CD set from Silva.
There are a lot of missing Herrmann ("Eye of the Beholder", "Little Girl Lost", "Living Doll", "Ninety Years Without Slumbering"), Goldsmith ("The Four of Us Are Dying", "Nightmare as a Child") and Steiner ("Mute", "Miniature", "I Dream of Genie", "The Bard") and many others.
I wish that one had it all! I'm sure, however, that you've been enjoying what is on there.
Yeah that Silva set (which is long OOP and incredibly hard to find these days) was just the old suites from the 80s Varese lps in one spot. It's far from complete and the Varese assemblies are out of order and omit certain tracks. Desperately needs a new release but as CBS donated their music library to UCLA in the Decade since those transfers were made, it seems like a longshot.
So a donation to UCLA puts a hold on any chance of a future release ?
The problem with vintage television soundtracks is it's very rare so if you don't grab them when it's freshly released,
it's gone or it becomes an expensive merchandise for speculators.
Kind of like Disney threatening to put certain of their classics back in the vault unless they're snapped up within a very limited time?
If its like the videotape library, they don't allow you to make copies.
So with much of the CBS music library at UCLA, that kinda puts the brakes on any possible release of future CBS series soundtrack releases...too bad.
Years ago I bought these five vinyl albums:
Later on I found two CD volumes that combined the "best" of these into longer discs.
Since then, I've needledropped these LPs onto CD for ease of access.
How did you do that?
Used a turntable and recorded them onto a blank CD-R. Then ripped those CD-Rs into the computer for further editing and then re-writing them individually out to new CD-Rs.
