If you could go back in time and attend any film music recording session(s). Which would you "crash" in on?

I don't want to go back in time so much to attend sessions, as to go there the minute master tapes were thrown away, before they were recorded over, before a building flooded or caught fire, and rescue the tapes. Maybe use some futuristic technology to secretly record the sessions with modern techology. If, by some unprobably fate, we should have time machines, think of the historical aspect of rescuing film scores.

James Horner's Commando sessions. Just what in the hell did that look like?

Jerry Fielding's Beyond the Poseidon Adventure sessions were apparently a real hoot.

In all seriousness, I must echo many people's desire to experience the original Planet of the Apes recording sessions.

LAND OF THE PHARAOHS

Tiomkin conducting that huge orchestra and chorus must have been a sight to behold.

ALIEN by Jerry, with Lionel conducting. I still can't get over the sounds that orchestra produced.

How the West was Won
I have always heard that Alfred Newman was considered by many to be the best conductor in Hollywood. Would have been amazing to see him and Ken Darby with chorus.

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL by Bernard Herrmann

STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE by Jerry Goldsmith

both recorded at 20th Century Fox, I believe.

There are a selection I'd be very happy with.

A 1960s or 1970s James Bond scoring session with John Barry would have been very cool, perhaps OHMSS or MOONRAKER.

I'd love to have witnessed THE OMEN being recorded too, especially if it came with the opportunity to talk to Maestro Goldsmith about it.

But in a way, I think what I'd most like to have witnessed is one of the more 'obscure' (if that's the right word) John Barry sessions: a session not well documented or photographed. And for some reason I'm attracted to the idea of witnessing John Barry at work in the late seventies, so I'm thinking things like GAME OF DEATH, THE BLACK HOLE or NIGHT GAMES. Not his greatest scores, by any means, but they appeal to me for strange, unknown reasons.

Cheers

I'd go with Barry's KING KONG sessions, Stephen, just to hear that great low brass live.

Goldenthal's Final Fantasy, what a wonderful noise that would have been!

The CBS-TV sessions from the 1960's and 1970's, for sure.

I would have loved to see Mort Stevens conduct some of my favorite HAWAII FIVE-0 scores and TV Movies, or even Bruce Broughton conducting some of his early CBS-TV work.

For now, I will GLADLY settle for ANY of this stuff coming out on a CD release...:-)

Hook
The Final Conflict
Total Recall
Alien 3
Krull
Lionheart

^Any of these I would give my life for a glimpse into. I'd also like to go back and see Jerry conducting Mom and Dad Save the World and just ask "WHY are you doing this? WHY?"
