With the sad news of the passing of another Great film composer, which of his scores would you like to see released?

I'm curious about his TV miniseries score to The Adams Chronicles. The Twelve Chairs deserves a CD release (a bit surprising Varese did not include it in their LP to CD box, but perhaps an expansion is possible instead).

And if there is any other music he wrote for The Elephant Man that didn't make it to the existing album, I would very much be interested in an expansion.

Just about anything, with an emphasis on The Last Remake of Beau Geste and a definitive High Anxiety.

Have never liked the Mel Brooks comedy stuff. Have always liked The Elephant Man score. Would like to hear Ironweed.

John Morris is integral to my enjoyment of most of Mel Brooks' films. Some non-Brooks comedies, such as Clue and The In-Laws, are great in their own right but are definitely enhanced by Morris' scores. He was a composer whose work truly "speaks to me."

Silent Movie (one of the rare times I'd welcome a complete score presentation and the original LP program)

High Anxiety (one of the first film scores I've ever noticed)

Fresno (a lot of short cues, but easily an hour of great music)

The Doctor and the Devils (just to have it out there; the closest he ever got to scoring a horror movie)

The Twelve Chairs (the original album runs less than half an hour; can anyone think of something to pair it with?)
