I guess there are quite a few film composers who don't have ANY of their music released on official CD/LP/download. I know of one - Tim Truman.

Who else?

David McHugh? Taught film music composition at my Alma Mater and had never even heard of Varese Sarabande. No apparent interest in any of his music seeing the light of day. Just as well - None of it's very good nor interesting.

Anthony Gueffen has no film scores released, nor Czech/Canadian composer Milan Kymlicka has no releases that I'm aware of. Also pretty sure there isn't much by Alexander Laszlo out there.

Realistically, there are probably MORE composers who've never seen there music released than those who have!

Has anyone actually heard of any of them?

Kymlicka had 2-3 scores released at least.
On the other hand Teddy Castellucci scored movies that earned hundreds of millions = never a single note of any of his scores released commercially.

Varese DID release a score by David McHugh. I have it.
It was a comedy starring Nick Nolte, Martin Short and a cute moppette smile
Can't remember it's name though frown

Sounds like that terrible remake of Les Fugitifs originally scored by Cosma?

I was going to say Christopher Stone. Tail Spin, and video games Dragons Lair and Space Ace. But looks like he had at least one commercial release- Fist of North Star.

Yeah, that's unbelievable. He has done 30 film scores, but nothing in the last 4 years. Maybe he got fed up of not getting his music out there...

A few compilations on Amazon, but I guess they are promos.

Intrada also released The Stupids. Very zany Looney-Tunes-ish music. And there was a release (perhaps a promo?) of his Las Vegas Treasure Island attraction score.

Intrads did indeed put out a twofer with FIST OF THE NORTH STAR and TICKS, the former of which is enjoyable and spirited despite a large amount of synth stuff, the latter of which is pretty unlistenable.

He is, however, an amazingly talented composer at his very best. Has anyone heard his score for the cheesy Predator rip-off DNA from 1997? It's awesome. Here's the end title rip I did years ago:

His website has some really impressive orchestral stuff on it including more excerpts from DNA:

someone may tell me im wrong but im not aware of anything released by David Hentschel, filnscore wise, either on LP or CD, which is a great shame.
operation daybreak and the squeeze are great scores.

David Hentschel does have his Educating Rita score on CD:

Not true!
There are at least 2 CDs with Casadesus scores -- Le Defi and Babar.
And I am sure, because I have them...

Bill, I watched Operation Daybreak quite recently. It covers the same ground as a book I read last year, called HHH, about Heydrich's assassination in Prague, so I was quite interested. I actually enjoyed it, especially as it had a handful of decent actors in it quite unexpectedly. But one of the more interesting bits of it was the score, all electronic and in the main utterly inappropriate! That said, by the end of the film it somehow worked...

Would I buy a release of it? I just might.

Jaime Mendoza-Nava (1925–2005) comes so close to winning this category. He composed for 83 films according to the IMDB. Unfortunately, one of them had an LP release--1970's THE SAVAGE WILD. The guy just can't catch a break.
