PALM SPRINGS WEEKEND
Composed and Conducted by FRANK PERKINS
INTRADA Special Collection 376


The 1963 Warner Bros. soundtrack album from Palm Springs Weekend was roughly one third songs (performed by popular young stars of the era) and two thirds original scoring by Frank Perkins—a meld of danceable numbers and orchestral background music. Perkins (1908–1988) was classically trained but, after graduating from Brown University in 1929, he formed a dance band and started writing popular songs. His biggest hit was the 1934 jazz standard “Stars Fell on Alabama,” recorded by Guy Lombardo and over 100 other artists. He joined Warner Bros. as a composer and conductor in 1939. Much of his film work involved uncredited stock music. He was also active in television, contributing to such shows as Hawaiian Eye and 77 Sunset Strip. In 1962 he was nominated for an Academy Award for orchestrating, supervising and conducting the musical Gypsy,starring Rosalind Russell.

This premiere CD release on Intrada presents the complete Warner Bros. album, newly mastered from the ¼” 15 ips stereo album master made at that legendary studio on September 19, 1963.

Troy Donahue headlines this romp as Jim Munroe, captain of the West’s #1 college basketball team, in town with his buddies for a fast-break frolic of fun, sun and romance. Jim meets true love Bunny (Stefanie Powers) at a record store. Gail (Connie Stevens) falls for the wrong guy (Robert Conrad) but emerges with her reputation unsullied thanks to Stretch (Ty Hardin). Team nerd Biff (Jerry Van Dyke) finds he doesn’t need the “romance machine” he’s invented when the real thing (Zeme North) comes along. And Coach Campbell (Jack Weston) puts on a full-court press to win Naomi (Carole Cook). It’s a spring fling for one and all!

I have always followed with enthusiasm all the enterprises of Doug, Roger & Co since their very beginnings.
Not even the Vince Di Cola's ROCKY V had managed to discourage me (even if it is far from my liking).
This is the very first time I see myself forced to give up.
Sorry, but no thanks.
:cry:

Doug and Roger could have saved some time by having you write this album's press release with that sentence.

Seriously. I remember similar agonized bleating when Film Score Monthly came out with "The Omega Man" waaaayyyyyy back when. All sorts of "Regretfully I CANNOT and WILL NOT support this!" noise. Much of it was from people who were subscribing and unhappy that FSM dared to release something they didn't like, but I'm not sure how these people have a gun to their head in this case.

Many have told me I have no taste whatsoever, but I'm enjoying the hell out of this. If you like any of the "Man From UNCLE" music, you'll be all over the party stuff - vocals and all - and aside from that a couple of the emotional cues are rather nice. It helps me that I'm somewhat addicted to similar stuff from the era that's been coming out of the Italian labels from the likes of Trovajoli, Piccioni, Fusco, Gaslini, and the usual suspects. I hope Intrada doesn't take too much of a bath on this. Loads of times over the years I've taken a chance on something Intrada put out that I wasn't familiar with and I have yet to be disappointed. I don't think so, anyway......

The "orchestra only" etilists are the worse.. a soundtrack doesn't consist only in orchestra ever! As much as I love it. Nothing wrong with a lil of good movin' jazz. :)

I happen to like this sort of stuff, not necessarily my favorite but it suits a certain mood. Was going to say it should have been paired with the Hawaiian Eye television soundtrack but I see that's already been released a couple of times by other labels.

A pairing with another LP would have been nice because this one is so short. But the days of the LP doubleheader are mostly over. Look at Kritzerland or Varese, too.

"Good movin' jazz" that is "orchestra" too.
In my opinion, the matter is not "orchestra" or "not orchestra", but the kind of music performed.
Jazzy film music that appeals is (IMHO) Hopkins' THE HUSTLER, Amram's THE YOUNG SAVAGES, Mancini's CHARADE, Bernstein's AVA COLLECTION and so on.
This new release seems to me too far beyond the "fences" of the label.
Too silly, too easy. In a word, too little interesting.
I didn't feel prepared to it. I hope it will remain an isolated case.

Agreed.

Roger said that this will be an unusual selection for the label and was released because a colleague had requested it, so there’s no need to get upset as you can listen to the hundreds of other great albums they released.

As for not liking DiCola’s Rocky IV score, that is unforgivable.

This release was made in part to fulfill the wishes of one of the studio execs we work with. That was as good a reason as any to make it happen. Beyond that, I personally grew up with the LP and always loved the rumble music and the finale. I also performed some of Frank Perkins original band music when I was in school. On top of that, Intrada has long since established itself as not only deeply committed to symphonic film music, but to all manner of film work from the old scores to the new, be they world premieres, expansions or straight reissues. We just don't have any "fences" when it comes to this stuff and I'll never build any. It's certainly ok that you have no interest in releases like this. But just to warn you, I make no assurances that we won't do more '60s 'teen soundtracks, or scores by Frank Perkins or whatever. If it's music from the movies... it's of interest to us. --Doug

On top of the That Girl-Earle Hagen/Mancini-style big band cuts, it has vocals by teen hunk-hearthrobs Robert Conrad and Ty Hardin! My mind is spinning! :)

Thanks, Intrada!

As soon as this is pulled from the catalog it'll become a cult classic and fetch big dollars online. :lol:
