My Vintage Selection for 2013, Part 1!
Posted By: Thomas Rucki 12/31/2013 - 3:00 AM
 
 
In this first part, we will focus on two decades of film music scores from the Swinging Sixties to the Subversive Seventies. 2013 was generous for Jerry Fielding—and especially, with a Clint Eastwood-related score: Escape from Alcatraz (1979)—and Jerry Goldsmith materials.

The Streets of San Francisco (1972): Part I
Posted By: Thomas Rucki 2/25/2013 - 3:00 AM

We’re going to examine each cue composed by Patrick Moody Williams for the pilot of The Streets of San Francisco (air date: September 16, 1972). It’s rather a television film than a pilot in terms of production values and length. This rundown is made possible thanks to the DVD edition entitled The Streets of San Francisco, season 1, volume 1 (CBS/Paramount Pictures, 2007, full screen, mono, English and Spanish languages, English and Spanish subtitles, Closed Captions, 4 discs, special features: Hollywood columnist Army Archerd interviews actors Karl Malden and Michael Douglas during 3 minutes 46 seconds and a 8 minutes 44 seconds pilot presentation that looks like a trailer-presentation told by an announcer). The pilot has 10 chapters and lasts 98 minutes and 55 seconds.

The Busting File: A Musical Comparison
Posted By: Thomas Rucki 3/5/2012 - 3:00 AM

We are going to examine the score of Busting, composed by Billy Goldenberg in 1973, by comparing the original recording and the actual music used and heard in the scenes of the film. It’s a music editor exercice of pinpointing the cues in the chronological order and the tools of the trade are: the soundtrack CD (Kritzerland Records, KR 20015-7, 44 minutes, 2010, limited edition: 1000 copies, 21 tracks) and the DVD of the film (MGM Classics, 92 minutes, 1.85 Letterbox, 2012, M.O.D., 10 chapters and a trailer).
