    Rate Sleepers!

    Your enthusiasm for Sleepers was what got me listening to it years ago.

    Rate Sleepers!

    It's his best of the 90's! The Football Game is what the Sunday Night Football theme should have been.

    Favorite Musical Sunrise?

    The Sun Also Rises -- Hugo Friedhofer (Gerhardt's recording of this on the Captain Blood disc is superb!) There's also a great sunrise cue in his score for The Best Years of Our Lives.

    Bizarre James Horner podcast interview

    Actually, he wrote the intro/end credits music for season 1 of TZ, and then it was replaced for the second season with the more familiar, quirky piece of library music that is usually remembered as the TZ theme. It's one of Herrmann's most sublime themes. And it fits the show like an eerie and foreboding glove.

    Who did you want to score LOTR?

    They're not actually, Ol' FishChip may have taken down the link from the homepage, but you can still access the old MM messageboard. E.g.: http://www.moviemusic.com/mb/Forum1/HTML/012530.html Navigating through them and finding specific posts could be tedious, but they are there.
  6. I quite like Bernstein's own stereo recording for Return of the Magnificent Seven; basically an abridged re-recording of the original. Lively recording.

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Hyperbole, of course. The first two Hobbit scores are fine, indeed. (BOTFA might be, too, but who can tell through that awful mix?) I'll still take SUN though. And History of Violence, which I like to call "More Music From The Two Towers and Return of the King". When Worlds Collide -- Leith Stevens

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Soul of the Ultimate Nation Skip the Hobbit crap! This is the only follow-up to Shore's Ring Trilogy that you need.

    James Horner's Top 10 Scores

    Legends of the Fall is mushy, schmaltzy, melodrama bumped up to 11 (or 12), but nobody did that like you, James. The Ludlows
