In recent years, soundtracks by Leonard Rosenman have been paired with other titles not composed by Rosenman.

  • DR. LEAKEY AND THE DAWN OF MAN, paired with Ernest Gold.




  • HIDE IN PLAIN SIGHT, paired with Lalo Schifrin.




  • ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR, paired with Schifrin (again) & Benny Carter on disc #2.



  • THE LAST HARD MEN, paired with Jerry Goldsmith.




  • HELL IS FOR HEROES, paired with Jerry Fielding.




    Of all these pairings, which ones do you like most (if any)?

    Speaking for myself, the reason to get these albums is Rosenman's music.

    How many FSMers got one or more of the above albums for the other composers, and not because of the Rosenman score?

    I own all the above albums. I purchased them all for Rosenman except "Hide in Plain Sight"
    because it first featured Schifrin's "Telefon".
    Oddly enough, I purchased "Hell is for the Heroes" CD for the two composers.
    My favourite Rosenman title among them is "Hell is for Heroes".


    PS: You can do now the same kind of thread for Jerry Fielding pairing with other composers.

    I got Telefon/Hide in Plain Sight for the Schifrin, Hell is for Heroes/Escape from Alcatraz for the Fielding, and The Last Hard Men for the Rosenman.

    Dating farther back in time, I got both FSM's The Chapman Report/Sex and the Single Girl and Apes twofer for the Rosenman scores.

    I got Conquest/Battle for the planet of the apes mainly for the Tom Scott score and for completing the Apes scores; I only play that CD for the Conquest of the Planet of the Apes score. Not a big fan of Rosenman's score for Battle.

    I do like his 'beneath the planet of the apes' score, but overall I don't connect much with Rosenman's scores.

    Me too. Last month I got the HELL/ESCAPE CD (for both scores) from SAE for $9.99!
    Seems as though this pairing of Don Siegel films is not an album that's selling many quantities. frown

    Since both THE GAMBLER and BEYOND THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE are solo Jerry Fielding albums released this year, I don't think Fielding is as much of a 'hard sell' as Rosenman is.

    The most recent solo Leonard Rosenman disc was FMS' rare Rosenman (which is mostly TV music), and FMS membership is required to order that CD from them directly.

    Hi, Smitty.

    Both HELL IS FOR HEROES & HIDE IN PLAIN SIGHT are very short scores. Would this be a reason why these titles were not the reason for getting the albums?

    The Rosenman titles you mentioned are not all released in 2013 so you can now start a Fielding pairing with thread including "Point Blank/The Outfit", etc …

    Yes, it's highly unlikely that Intrada would have released a 16-minute stand-alone album for HELL IS FOR HEROES. For what it's worth, the Rosenman is my favorite score of the two on that set.

    OK ... maybe in a few days. smile

    Back to Rosenman:

    1. How many titles you wish the most?


    PS: Who is willing to launch a kickstarter to get the complete "Combat!" music?

    You omit to mention FSM's "TV Omnibus" that contains the fabulous "The Phantom of Hollywood".

    Listen to these powerful expressive clips:

    For what reasons do do you get "TV Omnibus"?

    Unless the "Kickstarter" were to include the costs of restoration/reconstruction of the cues (most, if not all, would have to be done from listening to them within the shows, as Rosenman kept no manuscripts from the show, and none have turned up elsewhere - so far) and then re-recording them, it wouldn't result in much. All that survives from "Combat!" is represented on the "Alexander the Great and Other Rare Rosenman" CDs.

    And of course, to answer ToneRow's question (though I suspect he'll already know what my answer is) - Rosenman is always the main course for me.

    I wanted BOUND FOR GLORY for the Rosenman most of all. I buy releases if they have a small side order of Rosenman, becuase I'm more interested in the side order than the main course.

    I'm was elated when SAE stocked the Rare Rosenman FMS disc.

    Most of all, I hope Rosenman work keeps getting released, even if it is a "bonus".

    I will admit to buying the "Dr. Leaky" CD mostly for the Ernest Gold "Last Vikings". But I enjoyed the Roseman score the most, of those two.

    My favorite Rosenman score that has been issued has been"Cross Creek". Living in Florida, I've even had the chance to visit the area (now a state park). Nothing much there to see, except for the old cabin, and the surrounding wilderness.

    But I loved the Rosenman score, even though I was kind of undecided about the film itself.

    I always like a composer who has a signature style, but with Rosenman, for me, that's both a blessing and a curse.
    I feel you could own about 5 CD's by him and have it pretty much covered.
    I don't wish to rise the ire in the Rosenman die-hards, but his style is SO distinctive, that too much for me becomes overbearing.
    I'm sure others feel the same way about John Barry and James Horner.

    Side order. I listen to only a few of his scores.

    I'd say it describes Rozsa and Korngold just as well. Herrmann too, especially his more well known scores.

    I got FSM's TV Omnibus for the Rosenman & George Duning's THEN CAME BRONSON.

    Interesting that disc #1 paired John Williams with Rosenman. smile

    My aim was not to be thoroughly comprehensive and list every soundtrack album. My focus, rather, is on the shortage of solo Rosenman albums in recent years and that specialty labels tend to pair Rosenman music with that of another composer (presumably because so many folks "pass" on all-Rosenman programs).
