I don't think "Ghostbreaker" will work. Maybe I just burn a 36-minute CD-R.

Nightwatch, the one FSM released (it was paired with a QJ).

So I'm about to burn "Images" onto a CD. It is 36 minutes long, meaning I can fit something else.

What should I add? The obvious would be a Morricone giallo, but I would rather add another Williams.

I am thinking about "Ghostbreaker," or maybe his "Land of the Giants" or "Time Tunnel" score. Or maybe "Catch Me If you Can" without the pop tunes?

What do you think?


So you have about 40 minutes left on the CD. You could put a few individual pieces in there that are within a modernist style of the same era - like the sinfonietta for wind ensemble, prelude and fugue or the flute concerto. Or a selection of tracks from some of the ones you mentioned. Maybe THE LONG GOODBYE (to keep the Altman angle)? Or one of his jazz albums where he either performs or arranges. Like THE JOHN TOWNER TOUCH, RHYTHM IN MOTION, OPERATION ORCHESTRA (by The Laurie Johnson Orchestra), Frank Katz' FOLK SONGS FOR FAR OUT FOLK

I have many of those on LP. I opted to do just "Images" on this disc. Short CDs are like haiku, in that so much is communicated by the blank space on the page.

Oh, most definitely, you're preaching to the choir here. Good choice.

Getting ready to spin it, after the mono version of "Bee Gees 1st" from 1967.

Listening to "Images" now. This is right up my alley.

We watched the film a few years ago, also.

This is great. Beyond the obvious orchestral dissonance, I'm picking up a distinctive Morricone vibe in parts. I'm guessing this was deliberate.

So can anyone confirm, is the extent of John Williams' Irwin Allen TV music:

4 Lost in Space scores
1 Time Tunnel
1 Land of the Giants?

Correct. Plus the themes, obviously.

Of course. Thank you!

I was going for alliteration, the J sound.

How many odysseys/journeys will OnyaBirri consider?

Onya has one for Alex North, one for Williams, a 'suggest' Jerry Fielding + help me like Elmer Bernstein more ...

I recently created one for Carlo Rustichelli.

Who is next, Onya?

I did a Barry one once.

I'm interested in that Russian guy who was trendy a couple of years ago. Forget his name.

A Russian who wrote music for films from 2018 or 2019?
Can't help you on this.
Perhaps you mean a recent revival of interest in music of an older vintage?

Would you consider doing a Waxman odyssey? Or one on Leonard Rosenman?

The latter. He was very hep a couple of years back. Even the squares on FSM were hep to him, which is really saying something. wink

Would you consider doing a Waxman odyssey?

Only if he wrote anything as hep as "Crime in the Streets." I doubt that he did, or I would know about it already.

Or one on Leonard Rosenman?

I have all the Laurence Rosenthal I need. Thanks!

Do you know about King of the Roaring '20s?

If you're talking about Mikael Tariverdiev, I mentioned him in these threads a year or so ago. Prominent in the 60s, he eschewed the bloated symphonic sound for a more intimate chamber-like jazz approach, reminding me of Jarre's The Collector or some Legrand or Gainsbourg stuff. There is a 3 CD set available.
