Was this ever released, and if not, any chance?

Some people have already asked for this title, especially in the previous decade.

No soundtrack to THE ANDERSON TAPES was ever released. However, Quincy Jones included a 5-minute version of the main theme on his 1971 album "Smackwater Jack" (A&M 3037). The album also includes versions of his themes for the TV shows Ironside and The Bill Cosby Show. That album is available on CD:

As far as the chances for an original release go, I can't think of any Columbia film of that era where the original tracks have been found. At least not those that were recorded in the U.S. Recently we've seen Frank Cordell's CROMWELL (1970) surface from the EMI vaults and Georges Delerue's THE HORSEMEN (1971) from France, but nothing from the domestic vaults.

The score has never been released in any form though Q did re-record the main title for one of his albums.

I'd love this one to be released. Too few Quincy Jones scores have been released on CD.

This is one of my few remaining grails left to come out on cd.

Count me in. (found the dvd for $3.00 at a discount chain called "Big Lots.")

The score is all over the film's trailer. cool



"What's advertising but a legalized con game? And what the hell's marriage? Extortion, prostitution, soliciting with a government stamp on it. And what the hell's your stock market? A fixed horse race. Some business guy steals a bank, he's a big success story. Face in all the magazines. Some other guy steals the magazine and he's busted."

Thanks. Yes, I have Smackwater Jack. It's a very cool score throughout.

That makes sense. Remember the case of "The Getaway" released by FSM.
The original recording by Jones was MIA.

Ironside has got to be one of the very first TV-shows that featured the Moog synthesizer. Electronic music pioneer/Moogist Paul Beaver programmed and played the Moog on both Ironside and The Anderson tapes as well as on many other film-, TV-scores and famous pop/rock recordings.

Any chance Q may have a reel-to-reel dub in among his personal archive?

Sadly, even if he does the rights need to be sorted and a label be interested enough, to want to release it.

In the case of THE GETAWAY, the tapes were missing from the archives of Warner Bros., who had acquired the rights to the films originally produced by First Artists Productions and distributed by National General Pictures.

Further research shows only the following Columbia scores from 1970-1974 that have had a CD release in something other than their original LP formats:

THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT (1970) - The Blood Sweat and Tears tracks used prominently in this film were recently released on the Wounded Bird label, on their CD "Rare, Rarer & Rarest," probably not from the Columbia vaults.

A WALK IN THE SPRING RAIN (1970) - Varese released Elmer Bernstein's score in 2009. Were these tracks from Columbia or from the Bernstein estate?

THE LAST REBEL (1971) - An expansion of this western score from Tony Ashton and Jon Lord was released in 2002 in Britain on the Purpe label.

POPE JOAN (1972) - Harkit somehow released the Maurice Jarre score to this film in 2009, obviously not from the Columbia vaults.

THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD (1974) - Prometheus released the mono tracks of the full Miklos Rozsa score in 2008. I'm not sure what the source of those tracks was.

Have specialist labels ever approached Quincy Jones regarding whether he has score tapes and is willing to make them available?

THE ANDERSON TAPES are missing.

I just took the opportunity there to make another unfunny joke. Geddit?

Anyway, recovering my composure, a question - It's been a long time since I've seen the film. The Main Theme is memorable, but how much score is in the actual film? Enough to make a CD release? I suppose that even if the score is short in the movie itself, there could be a lot of unused cues around. No idea about that, but I'm reminded of the wonderful (and lengthy) CDs which Intrada put out for Lalo Schifrin's COOGAN'S BLUFF, and particularly Gil Mellé's stupendous BORDERLINE - both films used comparatively little of the material written for them.

I just saw the film and it seems like there is enough for an album. I say "seems" because the impressions I get from music when heard only during the film can be misleading.

Has Intrada ever released a Quincy Jones score?

I don't think so. Of the specialist labels, only FSM, T'he Split' and Kritzerland, 'Enter Laughing' have released Q scores.

Also "Killer by Night" (FSM)
I wonder if LK worried about Q dying in his sleep when he was releasing this?


It's a damn shame, anyway, that so many terrific scores by Jones sit collecting dust in studio vaults.
