While there are certainly plenty of scores out there that I would love to see a release of, and there are a couple of "Holy Grails" that have had incomplete or disappointing suite/excerpt releases ("Valley of Gwangi" and "Mister Moses").
So many of my grails have been finally released in just the last 2-3 years, there is only one true Grail left for me:

Sol Kaplan's WAY OF A GAUCHO

and would also love The Postman by Newton-Howard (further proof that dreadful movies do sometimes have amazing scores)

The Postman is quite an excellent film. I knew back in 1997 that eventually I'd start seeing people re-evaluating the movie and realizing it's actually pretty good, and I've been seeing signs of that in recent years. I do hope the score is expanded at some point.

Its a fantastic score, but the film is truly dreadful.

I have the distinct pleasure of going to the Film's premiere, sitting in front of Costner and his family and laughing my ass off during the scene when the little boy (Costner's son) ran out into the road and held out the letter waiting for the "Postman" to ride back down the road and snatch the letter from the kid's hand. Pure MST3K moment!

(I was almost expecting a boot to the head after laughing that hard, but nothing happened)

Great score...great bad movie


I remember liking the film when I saw it on DVD in 98. Dunno if it was because I just wanted to be entertained (and could throw out any logical thinking) or root for the underdog, which I still do. Nonetheless, I loved the score and still yearn for an expanded CD presentation.

MV! Dude! Booby! I hope you have the love, desire and power to persuade WB to let LLL get a complete version out! :-)

Forgot some more!

"That Touch of Mink" (Geroge Duning)
"The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" (Morricone; including tons of alternates and some un-used music, there's about 4CD's worth)
"The Godfather" (trilogy, complete scores)

And if it was also recorded in stereo...
"Hannie Caulder" (Ken Thorne; the promo is in mono, and could sound better)

"Quantum Leap" (Mike Post, Velton Ray Bunch [didn't Greg Edmonson do some?]; a great 2/3CD set would be wonderful)

Goldsmith's, The List Of Adrian Messenger! How long do we have to wait for this?

 Posted:   Feb 2, 2013 - 11:43 AM   
 By:   John Black   (Member)

Both a complete OBSESSION and THE LIST OF ADRIAN MESSENGER fall into the "When do we get these?" category. They're both huge needs from major composers.

Anything by Conti.

 Posted:   Feb 2, 2013 - 10:37 PM   
 By:   Sigerson Holmes   (Member)

"Kazablan," the smash hit Israeli musical by Dov Seltzer ("The 7 Magnificent Gladiators").

In an attempt to make it an international hit, it was filmed in both Hebrew and English. A two-disc release with both versions (and all the never-released underscoring) would be a treat.

I thought about this at length - what score do you REALLY want, have ALWAYS wanted but will NEVER have? For me, it is "Brian's Song". It was a movie about a football player! In 1971 I hated football but LOVED James Caan and Billy Dee Williams. How floored was I when I fell for this movie and the touching story of Brian Piccolo and Gale Sayers. The beautiful score written by Michel Legrand is my holy grail!
