Looking forward to it - hopefully it'll manage to include tracks from every episode with original music.

Which episodes would you like to see included? (Bear mind that the album won't include episodes that were totally tracked - that might sound obvious, but someone on another board complained when Intrada put out albums from the original Battlestar Galactica that the music from the episode with Fred Astaire wasn't included - that was one of the tracked ones.)

My picks would include

"The Night Of The Inferno"
"The Night Of The Puppeteer"
"The Night Of The Man-Eating House"
"The Night Of The Firebrand"
"The Night Of Jack O'Diamonds"
"The Night Of The Big Blackmail"
"The Night Of The Assassin"

The Old QM shakes off the cobwebs and steps back in for this thread:

If this news is true, then it's the best entertainment announcement I'll hear all year. La-La Land Records has produced outstanding, remastered, limited edition, complete collections of all the music—I mean, down to every last note—for both Star Trek (OS) and Mission: Impossible. I can vouch for this: I own them both. It doesn't matter if the music cue is three minutes long or three seconds long, it's there: clean, pristine, as originally recorded in the studio in the 1960s. If Jon Burlingame is running the project, then it will be A+: as researcher and historian of classic soundtracks, especially television soundtracks, he is in a league of his own. His liner notes are superior. To extrapolate from the others series' soundtracks: You want thumbnail biographies, with photographs, of every composer who ever wrote music for the series? You wanna know who played third violin for the second season main title on June 22, 1966, and was she in first chair for the fourth season end title, recorded on July 2, 1968? You learn it here. It's just that detailed, with beautiful screen caps from the series. Again, however, it's the audio that will blow you away.

Here's link to La-La Land's presentation of its Star Trek set: http://www.lalalandrecords.com/Site/STTOS.html

The only flea on the hound, as President Grant used to say, is that if this project comes to fruition as did Trek and Mission, it will cost a pretty penny. Start saving up now. Cut back on the Starbucks visits. Choose your summer movie tickets with discrimination. That weekend trip you were planning? Delay it for another few months. Eat more peanut butter and fruit salad. If you love the music, this will be a purchase for the ages.

Cross your fingers that it actually comes to pass.

But their Mission: Impossible set doesn't have the complete scores for every episode that has original music. (Unlike their Star Trek set.) And you can understand the decision - (seven seasons' worth is a lot more than three - or four).

First, to CL69: Thank you for correcting me. I didn't do my homework properly.

And now I am delighted to be able to confirm DaveWest's preview in April. On 05.25.17 I sent an email to La-La Land: "I’ve read that the complete soundtracks for The Wild Wild West is in production, under the supervision of Jon Burlingame. Can you confirm the accuracy of this report?"

I've just received from them this crisp but affirmative reply: "We hope mid to late July."

Still no details on their website, but here it is for your consultation in weeks to come:

YES!

Aiming to get four of those (not a Jablonsky fan)...

And now an update: I asked Jon Burlingame on Twitter if all the original scores would be represented:

Not all of them but all of the really good ones: excerpts from 26 original scores!

https://twitter.com/jonburlingame/status/881326411444649984


I didn't quite manage to get it reduced to the main attraction, but...

That's next Tuesday! :)

I will definitely buy this if it has 5 hours of the original music from the show. But who is Dimitri Tiomkin? What's he got to do with the original score?

Tiomkin scored many movies like High Noon and The High And The Mighty, but here's his most famous Western theme (and probably his most famous composition of any kind):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ehbh27THeJk

CBS got Tiomkin and his regular lyricist Ned Washington to write a Rawhide-type theme song for The Wild Wild West so lightning would strike twice. Here's the story:

Footnote to CL69's last entry: It's been speculated—by Jon Burlingame, among others—that Richard Markowitz was probably stiffed out of onscreen credit for the series theme throughout its run owing to CBS contractual arrangements with Tiomkin—by far the Bigger Gun in the early 60s—who created music for the series that was never used. By the 1960s it was SOP to credit a composer in the end titles for a series main theme: Jerry Goldsmith for The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Alexander Courage for Star Trek, etc. To this day, the late Mr. Markowitz is getting stiffed: Notice that La La Land's marketing headlines Tiomkin for the West soundtracks—a far more recognizable name to soundtrack enthusiasts of the 1950s.

Scrounging the web for information about La La Land's West soundtrack release—about which, to this point, La La Land has been so secretive that they've become their own secret service—I turned up this quotation from the set's producer, Jon Burlingame:

According to a post from Burlingame, the set includes "excerpts from 26 scores representing all four seasons. Composers include Richard Markowitz, Robert Drasnin, Richard Shores, Dave Grusin, Fred Steiner, Harry Geller, Walter Scharf, Jack Pleis -- plus the never-before-heard Dimitri Tiomkin theme that was rejected early on." Burlingame asserts that there were three rejected Tiomkin themes (at least one a vocal), but it's unclear if all three will be included in the set or not. The tapes that made this release possible were found in an exhaustive two-year search of the UCLA Film and Television Archives, which also contained alternate, unused versions of Markowitz's iconic main theme. The set contains over an hour of music by Shores.

Some things to note in this statement. By my count there were 35 full-episode scores for the series, plus about eight partial scores (new cues mixed with old tracks). Excerpts from 26 episodes is a very good representation. For the first time ever we'll hear the rejected Tiomkin themes. This will be of historical interest—a what-might-have-been—which, I suppose, is a good thing. The less-than-good thing: if a lot of space is dedicated to them, it will absorb space that might have been used by better music, more familiar to our ears. Over an hour of music by Richard Shores sounds like a good thing. The references to Grusin, Steiner, and Scharf are revealing, since we can pinpoint their episodes (the only ones they scored): respectively, "The Puppeteer," "The Undead," and "The Assassin." One hopes that we get over an hour of Markowitz's music, since he scored all but about two of the first-season episodes, about five of the second-season, and one for Season 3 (the rhapsodic score for "Jack O'Diamonds"). The wild card in the list is Jack Pleis, who scored three complete episodes ("The Tartar," "The Samurai," and "The Gruesome Games") but composed an abundance of cues that were woven into Season 3. Overall, if Burlingame executed the research and made the selections, I'm prepared to trust his taste and judgment. This man knows his business.

In all, we won't have La La Land's complete, 15-disc extravaganza of Star Trek, but I'm going to be grateful for whatever we get. After two years of research and who knows how much of an outlay, I'm surprised that they are limiting the press to only 1000 units, but, let's face it: West isn't the draw that Trek or Mission: Impossible might be.

On the other hand, we can always prove them wrong next Tuesday.

BTW: Here's a list of what Burlingame had to choose from, assuming that everything survived from 1965–68. In addition, each season had new orchestrations of the main title theme, both opening and closing.

SEASON 1
The Night of the Inferno (Richard Markowitz)
The Night of the Deadly Bed (Robert Drasnin)
The Night The Wizard Shook The Earth (Robert Drasnin)
The Night of the Sudden Death (Richard Markowitz)
Night of the Casual Killer (Robert Drasnin)
The Night of a Thousand Eyes (Richard Markowitz)
The Night of the Glowing Corpse (Richard Markowitz)
The Night That Terror Stalked The Town (Richard Markowitz) §
The Night of the Dragon Screamed (Harry Geller)
The Night of the Puppeteer (Dave Grusin)*
The Night of the Bars of Hell (Richard Markowitz)
The Night of the Burning Diamond (Richard Shores)

SEASON 2
The Night of the Eccentrics (Richard Shores)
The Night of the Golden Cobra (Richard Markowitz)
The Night of the Raven (Richard Markowitz)
The Night of the Big Blast (Richard Markowitz)*
The Night of the Returning Dead (Morton Stevens/Harry Geller) º
The Night of the Flying Pie-Plate (Morton Stevens) **
The Night of the Bottomless Pit (Harry Geller)
The Night of the Watery Death (Morton Stevens) **
The Night of the Green Terror (Richard Markowitz)
The Night of the Man-Eating House (Robert Drasnin)
The Night of the Infernal Machine (Richard Markowitz)
The Night of the Tartar (Jack Pleis)
The Night of the Deadly Blossom (Harry Geller)*

SEASON 3

The Night of the Firebrand (Richard Shores)
The Night of the Assassin (Walter Scharf)
The Night of Jack O'Diamonds (Richard Markowitz)
The Night of the Samurai (Jack Pleis)
The Night of the Circus of Death (Jack Pleis) *
The Night of the Running Death (Jack Pleis) #
The Night of the Vipers (Morton Stevens) **
The Night of the Undead (Fred Steiner)
The Night of the Amnesiac (Mundell Lowe)

SEASON 4
The Night of the Big Blackmail (Richard Shores)
The Night of the Doomsday Formula (Robert Prince)
The Night of the Sedgewick Curse (Richard Shores)
The Night of the Gruesome Games (Jack Pleis)
The Night of the Kraken (Richard Shores)
The Night of the Egyptian Queen (Harry Geller)
The Night of the Spanish Curse (Johnny Parker)
The Night of the Winged Terror, Part 1 (Robert Prince)

§ The episode that introduced the signature theme for Artemus, which Markowitz reorchestrated for The Bars of Hell.
* Partial score, but given full credit on the title card.
** Stock music.
# So credited, but misleading: this episode contained some Pleis, some Markowitz, some Scharf, and a lot of stock music.
º After 50 years I hope Mr. Burlingame will distinguish exactly which music from this episode is properly credited to which composer. By 1966 Morton Stevens was in charge of CBS Music on the West Coast and, as such, received "Music Supervision" credit for episodes with tracked music that he himself didn't compose. "The Returning Dead" is the exception to that rule. I always wondered if he wrote something in it for old time's sake for Sammy Davis, Jr.. Stevens had been one of Davis's arrangers for backing vocals in the late 1950s.

I'm hoping they'll do what they did with their recent Wonder Woman set - that isn't complete, but it does include all the composers that worked on the show (including Robert Prince, who Bruce Lansbury seems to have liked working with). (By the way, the flyer's been changed to reflect Markowitz now.)

CL69: Many thanks for posting all the track listings. (Notice the wit in some of the composers' track titles!) Overall, a good representation of the series' music—with one major exception, IMHO: Nothing from "The Returning Dead." Apart from being a personal favorite of mine, so much of its music was used to track other S2 episodes (unlike "The Golden Cobra," which I find nothing to write home about). Already I'm complaining—and it's not yet available for purchase. Shame on me.

On the other hand, there are some real curiosities. The showcards. An unused Markowitz main title. (Wow.) And West for marching band?!

It's now available for purchase - I already ordered mine!

One of the soundclips: http://johndadlez.com/MP3/WildWildWest/4-30.mp3 No wonder this was rejected.

Ordered mine, too. This feels like Christmas Day, except for the fact that shipping isn't expected until 07.20.17. "We can hardly stand to wait, please Christmas don't be late."

Did you listen to the sample tracks on the La La Land site? The quality is terrific. The very first sample, the opening series title for Season One, is tracked in stereo!

I just ordered mine too! It looks terrific and a 40 page booklet to read with it! Altogether sounds great! I just bought the "new" WWW reunion movie double feature on dvd too, even though I have them in the big box set too. Just had to add it to my collection anyway.

Really looking forward to the soundtrack cd set though since the music is also one of the highlights of the show to me!

Don't get me wrong, I love Walter Scharf and I'm ecstatic about this release. It's just that the titles caught me a little off guard.
