    I concur. It's a masterpiece set all the way.
    Don't miss the excellent “The Night of the Firebrand” by Richard Shores.

    An excellent example of why that Wild Wild West soundtrack is well worth the money-- Alan got a present that's right on the money with the high quality of television music then!

    I also got the LAND OF THE GIANTS set, but I already had the previous smaller release, so it's not quite as spectacular, but still very nice to have. I'm waiting for (hopefully) a sale on the MISSION IMPOSSIBLE set and I'll get that one. But just having WWW is a dream come true.

    I agree about The Brady Bunch. The music in the first season was more Broadway sounding than in later seasons, when it switched to a 70s soft pop sound. And there were at least four versions of the theme song.

    I also think it would be fun to have a Screen Gems set, comprised of the iconic score cues from Bewitched, Jeannie, Flying Nun, Hazel, Gidget, Partridge Family (score cues not songs). (Speaking of The Partridge Family, there were quite a few songs sung in the TV show than ever appeared on any albums. That would be interesting to have, too.)

    For fans of horror television music.

    Episode 17 - Thriller - The Poisoner (1961)

    http://goldsmithodyssey.buzzsprout.com/159614/944720-episode-17-thriller-the-poisoner-1961


    The Goldsmith Odyssey will be spending quite a bit of time with the classic anthology TV show Thriller in 2019, and we’ve got the perfect special guest to kick off our examination of the series: Leigh Phillips, an award-winning composer, orchestrator, and conductor best-known for reconstructing classic film scores like Exodus, The Salamander, King of Kings, and many more. Phillips is also responsible for two wonderful volumes featuring new recordings of Goldsmith’s Thriller music, including selections from the episode we’re spotlighting this time around: “The Poisoner.” Inspired by a true story about an infamous English murderer, the tale gives Goldsmith an opportunity to serve up a rich, harpsichord-driven gothic horror score built around a deceptively attractive main theme. In addition to examining the episode and its score, we chat with Leigh about his relationship with Goldsmith’s music and his career in general.​

    I don't understand why Jerry Goldsmith seems embarrassed about having composed the theme to Barnaby Jones. I've always liked that theme.

    Right? The theme and Lee Meriwether are the best part of the series.

    I guess if you put it that way, then maybe VEI's all-in-one might be worth the money, despite all the flaws!

    Despite my love for the series, I just can't stomach the idea of buying edited episodes. I'll just have to make do with CBS' (unedited) release of season one.

    Jerry Goldsmith was one of the most brilliant and accomplished film composers in history. He provided amazing music for some of Hollywood's most horrible films. In fact, the awful films he scored far outweigh the good. Why was he embarrassed about Barnaby Jones? It's far from the crummiest project he was attached to.

    Where's the source on this? Another one I heard is the reason there's no official complete release of SUGARLAND EXPRESS is because Williams is embarrassed by it.

    Again, if there's a source, I'd like to see it.

    Right? As I've heard film and TV scores over the years, it has become easy to identify some composers. Sudden snare-drum-and-trumpet sting? Hey, that's Nelson Riddle's number 7 Beef & Cheese. Endlessly repetitive violins? Bernard Herrmann, without a doubt.

    But Jerry Goldsmith is so good, that he doesn't have an identifiable style. (Not to my ears, anyway.) He shifts from one style to another, depending upon the project. Sad that he is not with us anymore.

    The Sudden snare-drum and trumpet sting isn't that Batman villain The Riddler's theme? Bernard and his strings will always be easily recognizable because of a certain shower scene.

    Jerry's Stark Trek scores are quite identifiable I would say especially to Trekies and some film composer enthusiasts as well.

    Oh, Jerry had a very identifiable style...it was just not "the same thing every score." Unlike Leonard Rosenmann, for example, he grew and experimented. He was a true genius.

    Keep in mind that Goldsmith started from the mid-50's as an obscure composer for live tv so his style tended to change to fit in the specific decade and moreover he has different sides to different genres:
    his gloomy New Vienna School leaning
    his jazzistic tropism
    his melancholic/intimistic touch
    his martial orientation
    his light 60's mod style
    his western style
    to name but a few.
    When he first worked in the 50's, he was under the influence of Newman and Herrmann.
    You have to wait for the 60's to see his signature blossomed.

    He's one of the few composers whose work I love in any era. His earliest film work (City of Fear, The Spiral Road, Studs Lonigan - Johnny Williams on piano) are exceptionally strong. Then his 60's TV scores were very inventive: Thriller, The Man from Uncle, Jericho, his brief work on Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, to name a few.

    He exploded in the 70's thanks to The Omen, Alien and Star Trek. After that, he was the action composer of choice. Any film, no matter how low budget, seemed to make room for him. Sadly, he kept getting jobs in the shadow of John Williams, who was getting high profile films while Jerry was getting the knock-offs: Supergirl, King Solomon's Mines, Leviathan, U.S. Marshals, etc,. However, when he got films like the Rambo franchise and Total Recall...good lord! Air Force One is also one of my favorite of his latter scores, with even Joel McNeely assisting seamlessly. The River Wild is also exceptional.
