Dear Guys:

Of the Six Million Dollar Man series, which episodes should have their cues/soundtracks come out on a CD?

My biggest two are:
The original Bionic Woman (two-parter). Loved the shmutzy love themes, including Lee Majors singing "Sweet, Jaime," which had better be on any upcoming soundtrack release.

The original Secret of Bigfoot (two-parter). Loved the cues when Steve and Bigfoot went at it.

What episodes would you choose?

Season 1, 2, 3 scores only because of Oliver Nelson's original leaning.
Also the three proto-telefilms scored by Gil Mellé and Stu Phillips.

"The Bionic Woman" Parts 1 and 2 are my favorite. But Oliver Nelson's scores in general are great.

I seem to remember some great music when Austin fights the John Saxon robot, (my uncle used to play an audio copy of it quite a lot) or is it just using music already composed for such sequences? I would imagine the Venus probe fight scenes might be good too. It's a long time since I've seen any SMDM.

Also, am I the only one who quite likes the Dusty Springfield song? I'd like to see that on a disc. I thought it gave it a kind of Bond feel to the show, which I suppose is what they were after for those tv movies at the start.

Most of any episode from the first few seasons, but the score for The Seven Million Dollar Man is f'n amazing. The fight scene when Barney Miller (later Hiller so as not to conflict with the Hal Linden tv series) beats the snot out of a bunch of spies on the side of the road is my favorite piece of SMDM music.

The Pioneers and Eyewitness to Murder are also excellent.

There's a nice piece at the starts of The Thunderbird Connection in year 4 that's pretty great, as we first see the planes just before the opening credits.

There are a few threads about this but there was a music mixer on Youtube called STIKS1969 who produced some brilliant recreations of music from both the shows.

Fortunately I managed to download most of it so i have a great collection now but I don't know where STIKS1969 is now.

Here's a link to one of his tracks though.

I can't understand why these haven't been released though. They would make great tracks to listen to for runners.

Just looked him up via an internet search and he's got lots of covers of other cues from other series, over at a Soundcloud page:

LLL amazed me for a long-while now so what-ever released it gets my backing, but If I could choose.

The Moon Desert
The Solid Gold Kidnapping
Death Probe - part 1-2
Return of Death Probe - part 1-2

"The Thunderbird Connection" (season 4) is a rework of a previous score called “The Deadly Test" (season 3).
Both deal with planes and the Air Force.

SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN. COMPLETE!

I don't think they will release a complete boxset but a sampler:
it cost too much and the selling might not be that easy because it's too old.

I wish they could release Oliver Nelson's corpus only because he was the soul of the series.

Question:

If you were do a "suite" from a particular episode, how long do you think it would be?
