The Warner Archive has just issued a made-on-demand DVD of "The Venetian Affair."

I wonder if we will ever see a volume 2? This is still one of my favorite smaller sets from FSM

I know! This is a wonderful set, oozing with that Schifrin-esque 'cool' quality. I really REALLY love this and would definitely buy the next set.

I bumped this because I don't remember ever seeing a discussion regarding if Volume 2 might be expected as one of FSM's final releases. Anybody know or heard any rumors?

Hallo.

IF a Vol 2 would be one of the last FSM-CDs, it shurley (and sadly) will not be a box set, because Lukas mentioned somewere, that there will no more box sets from FSM.

Maybe it will be a double-CD with several film/TV scores of Schifrin from the 70`s (I`ll hope so)?!

Also I would like to see another OMNIBUS release of FSM (there were so many great composers in this box).

If only one of F.S.M.'s last C.D.s would be "The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich" coupling both the cantata (the recording) and the soundtrack. I'll buy it without hesitation!

I remember "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" being broadcast in 1968, and I'm sure I saw at least one or two of the three hour-long segments, but I don't recall Schifrin's score. Since the documentary was a David Wolper production, I don't know if the music elements would reside with the Wolper estate or with MGM. Since the DVD has come from the MGM/Warner archives, perhaps that's a sign as to where the elements lie. In any case, even if the full score could not be found, I too would welcome a release of the MGM LP.

Sad that this one couldn't sell 2000. One of my favourite FSM releases.

Thanks for putting this out, Lukas. Just got this for my birthday and I'm still working my way through it. Been giving Cincinnati Kid, Venetian Affair, and Once A Thief a lot of play.

People should get this while they can. smile

Will there be a Volume 2 release (on another label)?

I don't know. There are a few more Lalo scores from that library that would be available but others that I had planned for a "Vol 2" I released separately—Pretty Maids All in a Row, Telefon.

I agree. This set gets lots of play on one of my home systems.

This gets a lot of play at home. I am just very happy I was able to get this set when it first came out. I also bought TELEFON and PRETTY MAIDS ALL IN A ROW.

I would love to see you release THE MANITOU and HELL IN THE PACIFIC.

I agree as well. It's a wonderful set, and the bonus tracks at the end give a nice glimpse into what a 70s-based Volume 2 might have sounded like. Really hoping another label picks up this particular baton.

Are there any highlights on this set in the same vein as the Burning Candle sample LK posted above? I'm contemplating picking this up, but I don't want to have to listen through 2 hours and 11 minutes of sound clips just to decide whether to do so or not.

(ever since FSM switched from using .rams to .mp3s for sound samples, they've provided one-minute audio clips for every single track on a title for all of the titles they've released since then. I much prefer hearing samples the way Intrada and La-La Land do it - by only giving lengthy samples for the highlights only)

That "Burning Candle" is from SOL MADRID, a soundtrack which alternates between Latin cues and jazz. I don't consider this big band jazz track as representative of the 5 scores, though.

RHINO is similar to Johnny Mandel's DRUMS OF AFRICA in its depiction of Africa utilizing jazzier orchestrations than conventional Golden Age "jungle" music. However, RHINO is all descriptive score with no straight jazz set pieces or source music.

ONCE A THIEF is the highlight of the entire set, for me. But this is jazzy loneliness, with a lot of solo flute and a chamber feel to it - not really the sort of hot number like the aforementioned sample.

THE CINCINNATI KID also has some chamber-like passages for the dramatic underscore, but the source music and the tunes are more "period" in nature.

THE VENETIAN AFFAIR, with its use of cimbalom, is also not like SOL MADRID so much as the ASSIGNMENT: VIENNA muisc by Dave Grusin found in the TV Omnibus box set.

The above descriptions may or may not assist you, depending on what you like and are searching for ... but I hope they place the 5 scores in a better perspective for you to make decisions.
