Hi Stewart
I dont recall any of Bert Kaempfert music being used in the movies his record album though "A Swingin Safari" was released back in 1962 his music was always popular "still is" and I think its still available from Polydor the CD "Bert Kaempfert Collection" 1992... well worth getting.

The world needs more Star Trek on 8mm! :)

Came across this one lately at a junk store, enjoyed listening to it.

Always thought the 400ft Super8 digest was well done.

The thread is still going, nice [Smile]

Audrey's beauty plus Henry's music in Living Stereo....oh yes:

 -

The "original" score for "2001", or at least what was written before Alex North got fired from the job:

 -

Ry Cooder wrote great music for the film "The Border."
This Australian release is well worth finding:
 -

I love Steiner's work in "Kong." Can you tell? [Big Grin] :

 -

The 1934 big-budget bio of Pancho Villa, "Viva Villa" doesn't get much play anywhere.
This 78 features a stomping version of "La Cucaracha" as used in the movie, an early example of a record tie-in with films well before soundtrack albums became popular or even available:

 -

And the one, the only Anton Karas with his immortal theme:

 -

I have aquired a different type of soundtrack, which is even harder to come by. The Griggs Moviedrome issued cassette tapes back in the 70's of scores on piano for their silent films. These were ptimarily written and performed by Stuart Oderman. I have

Metropolis, Wings, Nosferatu, which are for 8mm prints. The Penalty, and The Unknown for two Lon Chaney 16mm prints that they didn't release the films, but released the tapes, because they were played in The Essex Film Club, which was run by Robe Lee, who owned The Griggs Moviedrome, with John Griggs.

Donnie Lee his son transfered these for me from the reel to reel masters on to cd. I also have The Lost World, which is the only one not done by Stuart Oderman. As Donnie go through more of the tapes, I hope to aquire more.

I'm not a soundtrack collector...but certainly have my favorites. John Williams is at the top of my list...all his scores are genius. I've enjoyed several of James Horner's scores such as Titanic, Legends of the Fall, Braveheart, and Apollo 13. I was also a big fan of Henry Mancini, especially the score for Hatari (1962).

Janice, James Horner's music for Titanic and the follow up CD Back To Titanic was very good. The Score for Braveheart was outstanding and contributed a lot to the mood of the film.
 -
I bought this double album of John Barry back in the 70s and is outstanding.
 -
later on he recieved an Academy award for "Dances With Wolves" and you can see why, its brilliant and excellent choice of composer by Director/Actor Kevin Costner.
 -
here is an oldie from the 1952 film, they dont make them like that anymore...pity.

My latest...Well I just had to get this one [Smile]

Last November, I was staying in Morro Bay, a tiny seaside tourist destination about four hours north of my home in Los Angeles, and I actually found a collectors' record store that was open on Thanksgiving Day! Of course I had to browse, and I went away with two treasures: Riz Ortlani's "Mondo Cane" and John Barry's "The Lion in Winter." On vinyl, naturally.

At last I came across this LP of "Paint Your Wagon" with one of my all time favorite tracks, "Wand'rin Star" by Lee Marvin.
 -
One of the greatest Western scores ever on LP, Jerome Moross and a 60-piece symphonic orchestra "The Big Country" 1958 bought this record back in the 70s.
 -
Lasty, another LP from 1974 "That's Entertainment" and one of the most popular Super8 features around.

I have quite a number of soundtrack albums,all Italian,mainly
western but not all Morricone.My favourite pieces of Ennio
Morricone's are the scores for "IL SEGRETTO", "FORCE G"
aka "WINGED DEVILS", "LEONOR","MADDALENA","THE SHORT
NIGHT OF THE CRYSTAL DOLLS""DESERT OF THE TARTARS",
"1900" and "THE BIG SILENCE"
There's just something about
the way the Italian Composers put their scores together that I
really love,and can find that certain themes can actually move
one to tears it's so emotive.A soundtrack that ticks all the boxes
regarding Western scores must be "HAVE A GOOD FUNERAL,
SARTANA WILL PAY" by Bruno Nicholai which apart from a
powerful main theme, has some very moving passages played
on cor anglais that stand well on their own,but when the music
and image combine, the effect can have the hair standing on the back of your neck The climax of "THE HELLBENDERS"
with the dying Joseph Cotten crawling over the mud to die
while the music reaches it's end with the soaring voice of
Edda Dell' Orso on the soundtrack,the effect is cosmic.I suppose
that's one of the reasons I have a fondness for the Italian Western is the way they marry image and sound so brilliantly.
Sadly this skill seems to have been lost,but it was one that
saved the Italian Film Industry.Thankfully we still have the LPs
and CDs to remind us.

I've been collecting film soundtracks since the early 1970s, with first being Jaws, then The Towering Inferno, Earthquake and so on, all on vinyl. I have all the Bond 007 soundtracks which were released on vinyl from Dr No to Licence To Kill. The rare Logan's Run album and so forth. Have recently acquired the limited edition release of the full score to The Poseidon Adventure.

As a cine fan interested in mechanical projection l also enjoy playing my vinyl on twin Gemini xt100 turntables...beautiful!

Yesterday we were shopping in a nearby mall when I saw a sign saying DVDs CDs and Records [Eek!] I thought that cant be right "Records" I haven't seen records for sale in a store for years it must be a mistake.

Well sure enough, they did have some, all in very good condition. I could not believe it but here was a copy of "Mackenna's Gold" [Cool] and "2001 A Space Odyssey" at only $5 each.

I am over the moon getting "Mackenna's Gold" as it must be close to over 40 years since I last had that LP. "Ole Turkey Buzzard" sung by Jose Feliciano has to be one of the best. The Album was produced by Quincy Jones.
