Anything short of Randy Spendlove taking over Universal Pictures' music department, it seems that our chance of getting these scores out has greatly diminished. Anyway, leaving the obvious Williams and Goldsmith suggestions out, we've got the following:

Airport series (Newman, Cacavas, Schifrin)
That Man Bolt (Charles Bernstein)
Rooster Cogburn (Laurence Rosenthal)
The Sentinel (Gil Mellé)
Frankenstein: The True Story (Gil Mellé)
Death of a Gunfighter (Oliver Nelson)
Skullduggery (Oliver Nelson)
Ulzana's Raid (Frank De Vol)
Winning (Dave Grusin)
Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here (Dave Grusin)
The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid (Dave Grusin)
The Midnight Man (Dave Grusin)
Shoot Out (Dave Grusin)
A Man Called Gannon (Dave Grusin)
The Milagro Beanfield War (Dave Grusin)
Two-Minute Warning (Charles Fox)
The Other Side of the Mountain (Charles Fox)
The Last Married Couple in America (Charles Fox)
The Other Side of the Mountain Part 2 (Lee Holdridge)
Charley Varrick (Lalo Schifrin)
The Beguiled (Lalo Schifrin)
Eye of the Cat (Lalo Schifrin)
Blindfold (Lalo Schifrin)
Play Misty for Me (Dee Barton)
P.J. (Neal Hefti)
The Promise (David Shire)
The Seven-Per-Cent Solution (John Addison)
Two Mules for Sister Sara (Ennio Morricone)
Scarface (Giorgio Moroder)

Why have such chances diminished?

The issue is threefold:

1) The studio has allowed very little out over the last few years.
2) I keep reading how the number of buyers of Silver Age scores (without the names John Williams or Jerry Goldsmith attached to them) is continuing on a steep decline.
3) The demand for these scores simply cannot compete with the prospect of slight expansions of the myriad 80s/90s Universal scores by the likes of James Horner.

So many great titles T. Newman Fan! You could post a similar list with Silver Age Universal TV or WB scores. It's the same situation. It's like the FSM board: another day, another list! ;)

I'm pretty sure there is no need to suggest these titles to Doug, Roger, Bruce or MV. If it is possible we will see some of these great scores released.

That's just the beginning, baby. I've got lists to last until this sinking ship of a market is gone and none of them see the light of day! :wink:

If I could choose one Universal movie score and one TV score release I would say:
Rooster Cogburn
Columbo (multiple 3-CD Sets :lol: )

ROOSTER COGBURN for a Universal western film and CENTENNIAL for an epic TV series.

Maybe I am wrong in thinking this way, but it seems over the last 6 or 7 months that we have gotten very few releases from the Universal vault. I am wondering if the Intrada- Universal relationship is still ongoing. I sure hope so. There are still many scores from the '50's, '60's,70's and '80's that I would like to see released.


Don't forget that just a few releases ago we gave you the complete Psycho II, which required Universal as well as UMG. In fact, also keep in mind that a large number of Universal projects have cross-licensing issues with UMG due to the years of first rights of refusal and whatnot with Decca, MCA and other associated labels. So in addition to the generally slow process of licensing thru Universal already a factor, things really get bogged down when UMG also needs to be involved. But we're good friends with both so hang in there. As Roger mentions, we have more of their projects in the works.
--Doug


Doug's realities stated above in July 2014 apparently still apply, so these things yet take time. (Remember Robert Townson's revelation that the Varese issue of LONELY ARE THE BRAVE had been at least five years in the works?)

We can always pass time by enjoying such miracles as already have emerged. People younger than 35 today might not remember an era when if a score didn't appear close to when its film was released, we had to accept that it never would. If you're breathing, you might still get something you want.

If memory serves me correctly , I believe Intrada's last Universal release was SILENT RUNNING at the end of 2016. So many from the 70's I would like to see them do. The 50's and 60's seem to be more problematic.

I believe so. LLL recently released some Universal stuff which, while from the '80s and '90s, shows that the studio is still working with the labels to some extent.

I suspect that we'll see more Universal titles in the area of John Williams, James Horner and Jerry Goldsmith expansions along with some premieres here and there, as that's seemingly where almost the entire market is at right now. I admittedly would like an expansion of Horner's score for Sneakers.

A decent amount of excellent non-Universal Silver Age stuff continues to flow, though, with the most recent example being Shogun.

Silent Running was just a reissue of the LP owned by Universal Music (UMG); I don't think any music had to be licensed from Universal (the film company), although maybe they used some films stills and such "courtesy" them.

Universal Pictures' involvement was a bit more substantial in this case. The liner notes explain that the studio was part of the extensive search for elements, hence their special mention elsewhere.

In the end, we now know where the album elements were stored all along. A "find" that was unfortunately too late.
