This is a comments thread about Blog Post: My Vintage Selection for 2012, Part 1! by Thomas Rucki

2012 was a deceptively good year for vintage score releases! I'd forgotten about North by Northwest--that's how good a year 2012!

The Friends of Eddie Coyle is the release of the year for me, though.

I'll have to give "Alfredo Garcia" another listen for those all-important (future) KOLCHAK musical references. I know the score to Firefall well and the scene with Ryder Bond's car cutting Markoff's funeral procession is pure Fielding!

A very nice selection, Thomas.

I didn't even know that Trouble Man had been released in an expanded version, so I'll have to check that out.

As you know, I'm having trouble feeling the love for Coogan or Drifter, but I'd certainly go along with most of your other selections.

I wonder what 2013 will bring big grin

EDDIE COYLE is really THE ultimate Neo Noir release of 2012!
I wonder what other score can top that?

Listen to the best track from ALFREDO GARCIA entitled: "Goodbye Elita"—Fielding's at his creative and atmospheric best! I adore the sense of ellipsis with the delay effect. It has a low-key bitter sweetness that announces an ending.

I'm biased because I adore both the films and the scores for COOGAN or DRIFTER and I know every damn scenes in relation to the music. COOGAN was never released properly on home video: the studio kept on editing the film. So far and in the last three decades, I watched three edits.

Put the DRIFTER CD in a car and cross a city: it's wild, Simon, it's wild. wink

I enjoyed reading your comments, Thomas. However, it just made me realise how much my soundtrack purchasing has dropped this year (2012) due to a rejuggling of priorities. I have bought a grand total of THREE of the CDs on your list.

But I have made a Christmas list (our Santa doesn't come until the 6th of January) and, if I'm lucky, that total will shoot up to four.

Signing off for this evening - HAPPY NEW YEAR!
