It's interesting and fun to speculate about the idea of an album of The Poseidon Adventure, had it been released in 1972 and to what tracks it may have included.
I put this playlist together assuming John Williams had produced an album, using both the LaLaland and FSM releases while allowing for common soundtrack sensibilitys of the time.

Side 1
1. Main Title
2. Rogo And Linda
3. The Morning After (Instrumental)
4. To Love
5. The Big Wave/The Aftermath
6. Raising The Christmas Tree

Side 2
1. The Morning After (Theme from The Poseidon Adventure)
performed by Maureen McGovern
2. Through The Galley
3. The Other Survivors
4. New Years Eve Party
5. Hold your Breath
6. The Red Wheel
7. End Title (The Rescue)


Rogo And Linda - Williams has never been adverse to including unused music
in his album production hence the inclusion of this track.

Raising The Christmas Tree - Like The Towering Inferno, side 1 comes to an end
with a stirring cue from one of the films major set pieces.

The Morning After (Theme From The Poseidon Adventure) performed By Maureen McGovern -
While I prefer the vocal version on the LaLaLand release, this was the popular version at the time and would have been included on a commercial soundtrack album.

New Years Eve Party - Version 2 from LaLaLand edition.

Anyway, that's my 1972 soundtrack album, rounding out at about 30 mins.
Any thoughts, different cue's etc?

Oh....and in the great tradition of soundtrack LP's, I hope I've left your favorite track off. big grin


Thanks to FSM and LaLaLand for their great Poseidon Adventure albums.

Of all the scores released past and present this is the one that still perplexes me in the fact it was never released. Considering that 1972 was well in the timeline of soundtracks being in vogue its mind boggling that Fox did not consider a stereo recording or an album. This was really John Williams 'breakout' score...everything before that was like comedy scores or television. I remember looking and waiting for a soundtrack to come out which never came to be.

Me too. I kept waiting and waiting and waiting... The film was such a big hit, it remains hard to believe.

Talk about waiting and waiting. I did the same thing for FAMILY PLOT.

Still do. I guess I'm like Ol' Shep.

If I'm not mistaken, for some reason it was listed in the Schwann catalog for a time.

I think this was a fun idea, and I believe you did a good job of creating this "LP." Your placement of the Maureen McGovern version makes absolute sense. Thanks for creating the LP that a lot of us were looking for so many years ago!

Here's a tracklist I made up for a possible Die Hard LP if one had of been released back in 1988.
Though LP's were still being produced, the CD had well and truly established itself,
and subsequently running times were slowly creeping up.
All tracks are from the LaLaLand release.

Side 1
1. Let It Snow 1:44
(Performed by Vaughn Monroe)
2. Terrorist Entrance 4:06
3. McClane's Escape/You Want Money 6.00
4. And If He Alters It? 2:40
5. Tony Approaches 1:41
6. Tony and McClane Fight 1:11
7. Welcome to the Party! 1:10
8. Assault On the Tower 8:35

Side 2
1. Christmas in Hollis 2:59
2. Let It Snow (Source) 1:58
3. Going After McClane 4:30
4. Ode to Joy (Alternate) 2:11
5. The Battle / Freeing the Hostages 6:54
6. Happy Trails 1:12
7. Beethoven's 9th (Beethoven) 4.00


I changed some of the cue titles from 'John' to 'McClane' simply because I think it sounds
better.


Let It Snow / Christmas In Hollis
Two catchy and commercially viable songs most definitely would have been included on a
potential LP release as well as adding to the whole christmas feeling of the score.

McClane's Escape/You Want Money
This cue would probably have been edited down to about 3 mins or so for LP release.
Most likely excising the sneaking around music in the middle but book-ending the cue with
the more iconic moments.

Ode to Joy (Alternate)
I choose the alternate version of this cue simply because I liked it better.

Happy Trails
I don't know for sure if this cue would have been included or not. especially since 'Freeing
The Hostages' has such a strong climax in itself. But It does make for a
ballsy finale to the score so I included it for its own sake.

Beethoven's 9th
This classical piece was such an anchor point for the score, its inclusion was mandatory.

Because "Charade" was arguably the most poorly conceived Mancini "soundtrack," I created an alternate universe LP once the film tracks were released:

http://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=89513&forumID=1&archive=0

Some other members in the same thread also posted their versions.

I'm working on a "Days of Wine and Roses" and "Wait Until Dark" LP, but they both present some challenges for different reasons.

Very good for CD, however, in excess of 51 minutes, your program would most probably not be suitable for LP

I made one for Superman IV a while ago:


SIDE ONE (22:38):

1. Main Title - 2:55
2. Someone Like You (Lacy's Theme) - 3:18
3. First Nuclear Man - 2:18
4. Jeremy's Theme - 2:16
5. Fresh Air - 4:34
6. Nuclear Man Theme - 2:46
7. United Nations - 4:28

SIDE TWO (22:26):

8. Lacy's Place - 5:25
9. Mutual Distrust - 4:46
10. Down With Flu - 3:12
11. Moon Fight - 5:07
12. End Credits - 3:54


I made the opening track fade out right before the Smallville theme kicks in (The initial portion of 'Back In Time' is therefore still present).

'First Nuclear Man' is actually 'Nuke 1 Fight', excrepted from the rest of the track and renamed.

Tracks 9 and 11 have not been altered in any way. I merely shortened the titles for simplicity.

'United Nations' also has a shortened title, meaning that 'Net Man' is included too. I did however remove a short section: In the full track, there are two identical back-to-back full renditions of the march near the end, but I preserved only one of them (partly for time, partly for album balance).

The very initial statement of the ostinato is missing from the end titles, as I was unable to give the track a clean beginning otherwise. Not a major loss, and it isn't even noticeable at all.

Quite possible, however my willow LP from the same year runs over an hour.
