So...what was the M-G-M boxed set I bought in 1959?

MGM 1E1 was a new, and greatly inferior, recording with a Roman orchestra conducted by Rozsa's assistant, Carlo Savina. Hollywood unions' anger at "runaway" foreign productions was the reason that Rozsa was prevented from conducting his own music. The oft-told tale can be reviewed in the notes for FSM's BEN-HUR set.

"The Vigilante" by Jay Chattaway, available on Fania records and tapes. Not!

More recently, John Debney's Idlewild was set for Varese Sarabande, but it became one of their few cancellations (see also Lucky You, Righteous Kill and Whispers In The Dark - until Intrada did that last one).

And then, of course, there were the Fox Classics albums - not all of which came from Fox.

"The Vigilante" by Jay Chattaway, available on Fania records and tapes. Not!

Actually, a related LP did appear on the Fania label, but it contained none of Chattaway's score. Although titled "Vigilante," the album's cover wasn't identified as a soundtrack and did not mention its association with the film. The LP consisted of four long songs (which in total run 38 minutes), by Willie Colon and Hector Lavoe. As a condition of Willie Colon's appearance in "Vigilante," director William Lustig was contractually obliged to include portions of those songs somewhere in the film. Even if the LP had been identified as a soundtrack, it would hardly be the first such soundtrack to exclude any of the underscore. The songs, which were generally used as source music, are currently available as a download.

... sounds like Tony Habeeb's services were retained after THE SWARM LP liner notes for his contribution to this page of the pressbook wink

The posters for Richard Lester's 1979 CUBA promised an LP of Patrick Williams's score on United Artists Records & Tapes, but it did not finally get a release until Kritzerland rescued it in 2010.

Two great two-fers!

Frank Cordell, The Mosquito Squadron released with Khartoum (FSM)


... and also Intrada's CD of Frank Cordell's FLIGHT FROM ASHIYA was culled from mono tapes that were assumed to be album masters for a planned LP.

Roberto Nicolosi's 1959 La battaglia di Maratona was planned to be an LP according to the liner notes inside this Digitmovies CD.

Beat Record's issue on CD last year of Piero Piccion's IL DEMONIO is one of many examples of Italian soundtracks originally intended to be vinyl LP albums around the time of the films' release.



The first 14 tracks on this CD are from a mono master for an LP program, but only 4 of these cues were released on a C.A.M. EP.

For me, the big three that never got an LP will always be:

THE OMEGA MAN
THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE
RAISE THE TITANIC

Three good ones, too.

Somebody with a JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS (1963) pressbook will have to verify this, but I was told that the pressbook said there would be a soundtrack album on Colpix, which of course never came about.

But were LPs planned?

Apparently 'The Keep' by Tangerine Dream, but due to Box office failure, it didn't materialise.

A few copies were spotted in 1983, with only 4 tracks that appeared in the movie, because a lot of music was already released on previous TD albums, such as 'Rubycon' and 'Logos', and 3 tracks were reworkings of other composers.

The end credits of 1985's Restless Natives promised me a soundtrack album.

I had to wait until 1998 for Big Country to release a 35 minute 'supercut' on their Restless Natives & Rarities cd.

Legrand's COPS AND ROBBERS. Billing block announced the soundtrack being available on UA Records. Didn't actually materialize until the Kritzerland CD.

"Doctor Detroit" (Lalo Schifrin) was put together but never materialized. An album of songs did, however, come out.
