You would think there's been enough interest expressed for soundtracks to various classic television shows (Other than Star Trek and X-Files).

I wonder why there's very few titles that have been released.

Very few? I feel like there are many. I'm not sure what years you consider "classic," but just off the top of my head, recent-ish releases include "Dr. Kildare," "Lost in Space," "Cain's Hundred," "The Twilight Zone," "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour," "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," "Battlestar Galactica," "The Bionic Woman," "The Incredible Hulk," "CHiPs," "The Flash," "Amazing Stories," "The Fugitive"… I'm sure there are dozens more!

We need more from Universal. MGM has been exhausted pretty much. I still want to see "Columbo" make it to CD.

It's because people always go, "Ewwww, mono...!"

Thought of a few more: "I Spy," "Knight Rider," "The Outer Limits," "Land of the Giants," "Logan's Run," "Planet of the Apes."

And this doesn't even include such more recent scores as "The Flash," "Batman: The Animated Series," "Space: Above and Beyond," "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," "Lost," "24," "Alias," a bunch of "Stargate"s, "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles," and more!

Lyn Murray's work for "Dragnet", especially the wonderful Christmas episode, would also be high on my want list. "Adam-12" and "McMillan And Wife" also come to mind.

One legitimate impediment to even more (besides the obvious lost or disintegrated elements) is that a series like, say, "Gunsmoke" or "Hawaii Five-0" had hundreds and hundreds of episodes and scores, an intimidating project for anybody not intimately familiar with those series.

Let's not forget about the cost to transfer all this material. We are starting work on another very ambitious classic tv series right now. The transfers alone would pay for a new car. lol

Gunsmoke or Rawhide... hopefully.
But more likely to be another sci-fi or superhero show. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea?

One quick way to get more TV music out there is to release more existing LP programs. In recent years, we've seen the releases of the LPs for Hawaii Five-0, Staccato, Mannix, Kung Fu, and the above-mentioned I Spy. Some of the others that are still out there include:

Big Valley, The (Duning) [ABC]
Dallas (John Parker) [First American]
Dick Powell Presents (Hershel Burke Gilbert, et al) [Dot]
General Electric Theater (Elmer Bernstein) [Columbia]
Hennesey (Sonny Burke) [Signature]
High Chaparral and Bonanza, The (David Rose, Harry Sukman) [Capitol]
In Search Of (Laurin Rinder, W. Michael Lewis, Steve Stewart)
Love, American Style (Charles Fox) [Capitol]
Maigret (Ron Grainer) [London]
Mr. Novak (Lyn Murray) [MGM]
Music for Loretta (Harry Lubin) [Decca]
Naked City, The (George Duning, Ned Washington) [Colpix]
Peyton Place (Randy Newman, Franz Waxman) [Epic]
Rogues, The (Nelson Riddle) [RCA]
Shotgun Slade [download only] (Gerald Fried) [Mercury]
Untouchables, The [download only] (Nelson Riddle) [Capitol]
Valiant Years, The [download only] (Richard Rodgers) [ABC-Paramount]
Wagon Train [download only] (Jerome Moross, others) [Mercury]
Wichita Town [partial release on CD] (Hans Salter) [Citadel]

I'd like to see a release of the music from Quincy M.E especially Stu Phillips and Bruce Broughton.

Yes, but the producer could post on this board and ask us what episodes had the best music. He doesn't even have to reveal that he's doing a project; we just love to talk about everything. This would be especially effective for THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN because the show ran in syndication for a long time, we have it on DVD, and there are only 99 episodes for us to know, not hundreds.

When it comes to TV soundtrack releases, I'm a stuck record!

I want Jerry Fielding's McMillan and Wife, Oliver Nelson's Longstreet, and Dominic Frontiere's Search Control/Probe. The Six Million Dollar Man would also be good.

As for British shows, I would also like an expanded CD release of Follyfoot (stop snickering at the back there!), and if the tapes can be ever found, Ken Thorne's (and others) The Persuaders!

Crispen Merrell's music for New Captain Scarlet wouldn't go amiss either.

Mike
