I would suggest that any label release the soundtrack of the series Dynasty (pilot), composed by Bill Conti. The main theme is wonderful.

DYNASTY is a big part of my childhood. Back then, we only had ONE TV channel in Norway, and so we had little choice in what we wanted to see. I followed the soap with my mom.

As for the music, I can't really remember much of the underscore. But the main theme is -- as you say -- wonderful and I actually did a small 'analysis' of it in a thread I can't find. It was a funny thread -- I was kinda showing off whatever new academic terms and tools I was studying at the time. LOL! smile

Anyways, yeah -- I'd be willing to give a DYNASTY release a listen!

Seconded. And the same goes for Falcon Crest.

Well, how about a big Bill Conti Prime-Time Soap box with Dallas, Dynasty and Falcon Crest featured in a number of CDs (6-9 discs)?

Did Conti work on DALLAS?

I'm sure enough he didn't - the soapies he worked in were "Dynasty", "Falcon Crest" and "The Colbys".

I would love a boxset of Conti's t.v. work. Don't forget his CAGNEY AND LACEY theme.

Did anyone besides me see this topic title and think of "I Was Made For Lovin' You"?

The Dynasty main title is really great. I play it along with a bunch of other period TV themes on TELEVISION'S GREATEST HITS: 70s & 80s. It's a good CD.

The "Dynasty" theme is great but the "Falcon crest" theme is better
I'd buy a release of the ORIGINAL music for sure.

I posted this combo before but any excuse is good enough for me:

Combine the music of the "Falcon crest" intro with the visuals of the "Airwolf" intro and be amazed at how well they work together:

sound OFF

sound ON

Cool Disco Stu! And I agree with you, while DYNASTY is a great theme, FALCON CREST is even better. BTW, have you been listening to Intrada's ROCKY IV? It's a great album. I just hope the rest of the ROCKY scores are released too someday.

Sorry about that. Jerrold Immel did the "Dallas" theme and he and other composers, including Bruce Broughton and Angela Morton scored various seasons.

We're on a great vibe here!

When during my lunchbreak I read on this forum that the album with the original film music finallly had come out I had the biggest trouble to not shout out with joy and scare my colleagues to death.

I had been wishing for that album ever since I became aware of the great in 1996. The music during the training montages and the running up the hill scene are my favourites. It requires the original song album and the new movie soundtack album to make that last one like the film but now at least I can listen to it out loud without all the grunting that I had to listen to for at least 10 years. Oh the looks I got from people who thought I was watching some extrame gay porn scenes.

Oh and that "Happy birthday Paulie" robot score is fun too.

I love the Conti Rockies but the Rocky 4 soundtrack has a very special place with me as I associate it with the best two years of my life (same goes for the Rambo soundtrack).

Jerold Immel has my extraordinary gratitude for Megaforce.

B
ruce Broughton gave me the "Logan Run" music (courtesy of FSM) and for that they too have my extraordinary gratitude.

I also have fond memories of 1985 and 1986. I was only 8 and 9, but some of my favorite movies, MAD MAX BEYOND THUNDERDOME and BACK TO THE FUTURE came out then.smile

And, as a bonus, Conti's great music for the American release of "The Big Blue"!!!

I prefer the one on T.V.T.'s 2 C.D. set "All Time 100 Great T.V. Themes" (which is from the series' first season) much better.
