  1. Reveal.


    This is from the final season of "Wiseguy".


    Reading online, the series had it's following, but it was never a ratings hit, so the network tried to ramp it up and to my mind, appeal to "Miami Vice" fans. The series star was out (for reasons I talked about in the thread discussion recent viewings, months ago), the setting changed to Miami (as I recall), and the theme revamped. Gone were Mike Post and Walter Murphy and in was Post protégé and associate (orchestration, additional music, etc.) Velton Ray Bunch (who also re-did the theme music).


    Things apparently didn't go too well, and location was moved to New York in the series and only a few episodes of the season aired (only about eight were made) before the network's ideas of re-vamping the series lead to cancellation.


    There has been no release of the scoring from the show. Only Bunch's work stood out in my view, aside from some pieces here and there in earlier seasons.

  2. Mystery Score Clip 114



    Going back a few decades to a genre that will be obvious to the listener.

    This atypical orchestral score might get you thinking of 1970's experimental Goldsmith or "Duel", but it's neither composer.

    I can't say the composer has any claims to fame, though the composer has worked on some famous TV series.

    The score is unreleased. The composer is still with us.

  4. Mystery Score Clip 115


    We're going back to the 1980's for a nearly short-lived TV series (only two seasons). This is the opening to the pilot episode.

    No scoring from the series has been released. The composer is still with us. I can't say the composer has any general claims to fame, looking over his resume, though there is some love for the composer's work on a TV show by some score fans.

    One of the composer's earliest works was released not too long ago.

    I should have said and I meant to have said that I expected nobody to guess it, it's too obscure. I left this one up way too long.

    The composer is Paul Chihara and the series was "Frederick Forsyth Presents" (1989).

  6. Mystery Score Clip 116


    This is from an episode of a long-running popular TV series going back a few short decades.

    The composer is no longer with us and none of the score from any episode has been released. There were multiple composers on the series.

    Many would know the composer's name, however this composer never got the fame of somebody like Silvestri. The composer was a multiple-time award nominee and won twice.

    The composer is noted for doing some of television's finest scoring on a particular TV series.
