I received mine a couple of days ago and have been thoroughly enjoying both scores.
Re: VISIT TO A SMALL PLANET, although all the Harline cues are great, the one that really grabbed my ear is the cool jazz cue "Slow Bus To Memphis" by Victor Young.
Bruce, do you know if that cue was originally composed for another film (and maybe which one)?
Or is it a library source cue? How about the Mandel pieces?

And one last question: do you know who is the scat singer on "Desdemona's Lament"?




Those are questions I too would like to ask. All the notes say about the source cues is that they are "nice".
Two conductors are listed, Harline and Mandel. Mandel is credited with conducting "14-16" but is that meant to include 15 (which isn't composed by Mandel)?
From the credits, should we assume everything else is conducted by Harline including the performances of the Young track you mention, and the cool Livingstone & Evans number?

Aside from that, nothing but praise for this one. Great fun!

Great release.

So now it's time for clues to the next one. I may have lost track, but isn't there another Bernstein coming soon?


No info on the singer, as is frequently the case on those kinds of tracks. I believe the Mandel pieces were composed specifically for the film, but the paperwork is, as you might imagine, sketchy. The Young piece wasn't written for the film but I believe the track itself was recorded for the film - we provide the best info we've got, but sometimes to be definitive just isn't possible.

Clews. I know we're late, but it was another case of not knowing which title would get approval first. So, a double bill on one CD - one was released previously as a limited edition and sold out quickly and one is a world premiere release. Same composer for both scores and composer has been on Kritzerland.

Silver Age?

As an aside with regard to other future releases, please consider a reissue of Jerry Fielding's Lawman. It is the only Fielding release that I'm missing, and it's a big one.

Could it be Marvin Hamlisch? Or George Duning? It could be Bernard Herrmann. Oh dear.

John Barry?

Mary, Queen Of Scots and something new, like Walkabout or Raise The Titanic ('cause tapes was finally found somewhere)?

It's joke of course!

Yes, Silver Age.


Is Ernest Gold's A Child is Waiting the reissue? I recall that being a very fast sellout, and rightfully so.

I am still hoping for more Les Baxter scores from Kritzerland.

The last Kritzerland release of a Baxter score came in late 2011 (The Raven/An Evening Of Edgar Allan Poe). Two years is an awful long time.

A wild guess: Master Of The World and Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine.

Following the recent release of 'True Grit' from LLL there was a hint that 'The Comancheros' maybe coming this year is this still the case?

It is coming this year, but it's not this release, which has not been guessed thus far.

Hello Bruce . Will THE COMANCHEROS release come before the other Bernstein release that you mentioned Kritzerland was working on many months ago. I am hoping for a release of his score from WHERE'S JACK ?

Before. I'm still assembling the other title and packaging. We're hoping it will be our Christmas title.

If it was a quick sellout limited edition, it's more likely to have been an Intrada or Varese Club, than an FSM title.
So... has it appeared previously as an Intrada release? And maybe a Friedhofer?
