I actually think John Barry's most brilliant score is WALKABOUT.

(It may also be my favourite film score, period.)

Yes, not exactly unknown, but much less known than the things he's most famous for, like Bond, Out of Africa and Dances With Wolves.

Cheers

Well, three of my favorite Ennio Morricone scores are:

1 THE TWO SEASONS OF LIFE
( LE DUE STAGIONI DELLA VITA )

2. A SKY FULL OF STARS FOR A ROOF
( E PER TETTO UN CIELO DI STELLE )

3. THE BETROTHED
( I PROMESSI SPOSI )

Almost anything from three of the most underrated composers, Lee Holdridge, William Ross, and Robert Folk.

Absolutely agree!

Here's my favorite "not so familiar" score: Up The Down Staircase by Fred Karlin. This one I think is genuinely under the radar.

Up the Down Staircase has such a catchy theme.

Ferde Grofe's ROCKETSHIP-XM. Thanks to MMM for giving us a CD. I especially love the cue where they are being chased by the Martians with boulders being thrown down at them. One of the first outer space films ,that was not a movie serial, from Lippert Films.

TIN CUP (William Ross) is a great one.

If you can track it down.

Graham


I agree; a really fine score.

For a terrible movie with a SUPERB orchestral score, I suggest SUNDOWN: A VAMPIRE IN RETREAT by Richard Stone. He composed a very thematic, rich score that sports many themes often channeling Morricone and E. Bernstein as well as his own voice.

Ed's an old friend and we're happy to put out his stuff.

Yes it's a digital release, but it makes sense for a title which might not have a very mainstream appeal.

I love Varese, but I much rather have obscure score premiere releases than Deluxe Editions of mainstream scores! I love you guys.smile
