This is a comments thread about FSM CD: John Paul Jones/Parrish

While it is nice to have these Steiner LPs on CD after so many years what a major disappointment it is that
these recordings were not the original soundtracks - especially since FSM has access to the scores at Warner Bros.
Also since James D'Arc has apparently ceased putting out any more Steiner albums, after the wonderful A SUMMER PLACE, there should be no problem now with FSM doing so!

What about a full album of the original SPENCER'S MOUNTAIN??

BYU is still doing Steiner. SPENCER'S MOUNTAIN, JOHN PAUL JONES do not survive in mag form. Only about 30 minutes of acetates of SPENCER's survives in Max's collection.

Surely there must be some tapes in the Warner archives of THE FBI STORY, PARRISH, ICE PALACE or DARK AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS. Huh?? If not then am I glad I recorded, at least something, from these lovely scores myself 14 years ago!

Ray, is Chelsea-Rialto still planning on a release of Steiner's FIGHTER SQUADRON?

SQUADRON is on the tarmac. But the BYU wheels turn slowly for myriad reasons. So while we have clearance and provenance for several projects, I'm loathe to suggest dates.

Time is passing! It must be four or five years since BYU put out a Steiner album. You never said anything about the titles I mentioned. Is there anything available from one of Steiner's last works A DISTANT TRUMPET?? How about letting us in on what you have clearance for?

Ray, why can't BYU AND FSM BOTH issue some Steiner Warner Bros. CDs?

BYU has done a great job, but it's been 4 or 5 years now since the last Steiner CD. Why can't FSM and SAE issue a few Steiner CDs too!

To Joe Doherty,

I still play the wonderful Steiner CD you did in 1999 I believe. (Flame and the Arrow.) It's all the music we have from those films. Max is my favorite!

We exchanged a paper letter about 2000 and I told you how much I appreciated your great efforts. You also told me you would love to do Victor Young's SHANE some day.

...... Peter OK to email me at: kennedy48@yahoo.com">pkennedy48@yahoo.com

MR Steiner was a great prolofic composer who never failed to delivered the best in the large amount of films he did, most of the time his themes were so catchy and melodic, you could hum them all day long. His style was indeed unique and distinctive, it is a shame so many people will just know him for Gone with the wind[a fine score too] but a crumb in the giant cake of talent Max's baked.

My gast is flabbered that you could'nt reply to me. Well done on the display of bad manners and gross discourtesy. By the way I don't want to know what you have clearance for anymore! I was just being chatty.

It's sad that so many Steiner treasures remain unissued to this date (although many of them still exist). I think even the Rhino GWTW is incomplete - and there should be hours of additional material in the Steiner library (cues missing on the Rhino, alternates, outtakes etc.)...

The 1959 film JOHN PAUL JONES has just been released as a made-on-demand DVD from the Warner Archive Program. The film has been run on Turner Classic Movies in the last few years, but only in a pan-and-scan version. The DVD is remastered and in its original Technirama widescreen ratio.
