Thank you Tom !

No problem!

Wow, that Johnny Harris could also write some funky tunes, as the track "Ungrounded" from the "Fighting 69th" is a fun example. And Stu Phillips has such a talent for indelible melodies and great hooks, as evidenced in his "Plot To Kill a City" score, which has so many memorable tracks!

I don't have mine yet, but this is some of my favorite TV scoring and I've been humming it since listening to the samples. It's so amazing how the movie song was turned into a really good, exciting adventure march. I never liked the song version much, maybe it was the tacky visuals, but the TV version? Love it! The Planet of the Slave Girls score is very exciting. Plot to Kill a City? Amazing. This can't reach my house fast enough.

After a few more listens, I realized that the track "Ungrounded" from the "Fighting 69th" score is actually made up of new versions of two source music tracks from Harris's prior "Slave Girls" score! Specifically the "Love and Energy" and second half of "Uncivilized Nomads" tracks from "Slave Girls". As I was listening to "Ungrounded" I was thinking, why is this melody suddenly familiar? Oh, it was also on disc 1, as part of "Planet of the Slave Girls"! smile

Does anyone happen to know who the bass player was for the main title theme? A co-worker heard me playing a youtube clip of the theme and he got so excited about how the bass player was "working his ass off/playing the sh*t out of it" (his words!).

I don't have this release yet so not sure if it is even listed.

Thanks!

I have heard very little of this yet, have just finished listening to the first part of CD1, the Johnny Harris music from Planet of the Slave Girls.

So far, improbably, I am enjoying this much more than Galactica - exactly the opposite of how I felt about the shows themselves back when they aired.

I find I am loving the Buck Rogers music for exactly the reasons I hated the show - the campiness, the attempts to be "trendy" and "disco." The funky feel to it. Some of the Johnny Harris stuff even has a sort of Shaft vibe to it. Love it.

The first Stu Phillips score has started and I'm now deep into a Somethin Kinda Funky groove and some reprise of themes from his pilot film score.

I love this.

Sorry to leave you hanging!

The booklet lists four names under "BASS" but I think that's in the strings section.

Under "GUITAR" it lists:

Dennis Budimir
Joe Di Blasi
Mitch Holder
Tim May
Tom Rotelle

I don't know which of these musicians played which kind of guitar. Hope this helps.

Got mine today, with LOT and FITZWILLY (a surprise) - look forward to playing this; sad that case was totally destroyed (discs were fine - LOT case was smashed too, and it was nicely packed in a box with snow and everything; FITZ came in an envelope from France and was fine - don't know what that US Postal machine does to Intrada packages, but it certainly doesn't seem to like 'emfrown), and I had to dig around but found a replacement (harder to replace 3 disc case than a 2 or single, that is for sure!).

If you are referring to the vocal, it was probably none of the above names or the bass players listed, since the vocal was not part of any of the scoriing sessions. If you are referring to the instrumental version of the theme, then the bass player was one of the bassists listed. They all played fender bass if needed.

Maybe theire will be a SEASON 1, Volume 2?



It's all up to you guys! There's certainly lots of music, which is probably why not every composer is represented. Let's see how well the first one sells...



I am expecting my copy any day now.

Thanks, Stu!

(And thanks for helping to make Thursday nights so special when I was nine.)

I think what indyray meant was "bidi bidi bidi."

Here's a vote for a Season 1 Volume 2; there's still a LOT of good stuff left. One memorable example that springs to mind is Herbert Woods' work for "Twiki is Missing." I'm especially fond of the opening music over the "spaceberg"; wish I could link to an example but it was also looped a couple of times and tracked into the opening of "Flight of the War Witch" when the orb approaches Earth and lands.

Speaking of openings, I'm trying to recreate the weekly teaser music, which begins with the midpoint of "Tailpipe Torpedo" from the movie score. Does anyone know where the closing 4 note sting comes from? Thanks!

Got mine in the mail yesterday - and I LOVE it so much.

Brings back great memories of my childhood.

Please release more of this!
