David Amram  Satyricon   Options Amarcord Nino Rota  Hannibal  1981  From one of Hal Willner’s earliest album projects, assembling tracks by diverse artists covering classic compositions.

Stomu Yamash'ta  Mandala   Options The Man Who Fell To Earth Soundtrack  Island Records  2016  From director Nicolas Roeg’s 1976 film featuring David Bowie, but the director hired John Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas as music coordinator.

Ramin Djawadi  Game of Thrones Main Title (Extended)   Options Game of Thrones Soundtrack  HBO  2011  Dungeons and dragons, very addictive.

Philippe Sarde  Le Locataire (The Tenant) Suite   Options Le Locataire - Soundtrack  Quartet Records  2000  From Roman Polanski’s 1976 study in paranoia, the film stars the (admired and despised) director along with Isabelle Adjani, Melvyn Douglas, and Shelley Winters.

A memorable Hal Willner project - although, um, I forgot that David Amram made that fabulous contribution!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm david w:

Amram turns 90 this year, still making trouble!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Rob W:

Wonderful - he was an early inspiration!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Franco Twinkie:

Hi David, I grew up walking distance from two drive-in theaters. Lots of memories of the big movies in the '60's seen through the windshield of a Chevy Bel Air. Later, I would ride my bike in the exit, and sit by the back fence until I was kicked out by the drive-in police.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Doug Schulkind:

I was the first person not to watch Game of Thrones. Other have not watched, sure. But I, ha-ha, was the first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm david w:

Franco, that's good stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm david w:

I think I was the last to watch, and it got me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm doctorjazz:

Hey, Frankie, my parent's 1st car was a 56 Chevy Bel Air, green and white. Not many drive ins in Brooklyn, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm doctorjazz:

Franco, apologies for spell correct...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Stanley:

Hi David and those who like the experiential.
The only experience I have with a drive-in movie theatre is the one that Cheech and Chong visited.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm david w:

We had a Chevy, kind of a puke pink color. Maybe 1960.
Avatar 3:25pm Mary Wing:

This is still a pretty bitching theme song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm david w:

Mary! Yay! This one's for you!!!
Avatar 3:28pm still b/p:

At a twin drive-in in my area, one night we climbed up the framework on the back of the very big screen structure and peeked over the top toward the parked cars and the projection beam comin' at us. As cool as it was unwise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Franco Twinkie:

Doc, our '56 was white and turquoise. We also had a mint green '57 at the same time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm david w:

Stanley, it was pretty lame on entertainment side but fabulous for a dangerous family outing. (as still b/p indicates)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm david w:

b/p you rock!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Franco Twinkie:

Still b/p, my hat is off to you for been a front line drive-in commando!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm listener james from westwood:

What oddballs folks were to think this would harm his rep. A couple of years later, making Henry Fonda an arch-prick in "Once upon a Time in the West" was sheer genius.
  3:38pm ruth:

Wow this is pretty weird for Mancini. As David knows I'm not the biggest soundtrack fan but I'm dipping a toe in here in good faith
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm david w:

ruth! holding up the home front!
  3:39pm ruth:

Yup. with Butters by my side
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm chresti:

At the drive-in Santa Maria, there was a scrubby hill beyond the back fence, where we would hang out and watch the movie, I was about 11.
  3:42pm ruth:

I only ever once went to a drive-in in Portland Oregon when i was in college can't remember what the movie was. The point I believe was to smoke as much weed in the car as possible
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm david w:

Apparently, misbehaving at drive-ins is (was) a cultural marker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm david w:

I did read one anecdote that the pianists's at the Mancini session asked to take a break because the music was making them nauseous.
Avatar 3:46pm Mary Wing:

I am trying to remember the name of another movie about a blind woman being stalked by bad guys from the 60s or 70s but I can't find it on IMDB by searching for "blind woman." How many movies with this subject could there possibly be?
Avatar 3:48pm Mary Wing:

Ah, found it: See No Evil; It was number 85 on the list, sheesh!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm david w:

Another Nicolas Roeg flick, Don't Look Now, also has a blind woman, a psychic, but not really threatened. Amazing film.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Stanley:

still b/p - I can picture that scene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Franco Twinkie:

At The Vineland Drive-In. which is still in operation, there was a Southern Pacific switching yard behind it. We would climb on top of box cars and sit on the cat walk to watch the show, which was ultimately unsatisfying because there was a large stand of eucalyptus trees blocking our view. Plus there was no sound. Soon enough, we would climb down and sneak in - then get kicked out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm chresti:

The Tenant, great creepy movie.

Been here, just cooking my huitlacoche, potato, yam, and jalapeno/habanero soup....

That's showing 'em, Sem!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Doug Schulkind:

Speaking of Polanski, Krzysztof Komeda's score for Rosemary's Baby is one my all-time faves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Stanley:

Sem - anyone else would have thought you'd gone insane. Especially with this music in the background.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm david w:

Doug, yes! Amazing.
Avatar 4:02pm Mary Wing:

No Franco, it was See No Evil with Mia Farrow. I never saw Lady In A Cage, need to get that in the queue.
Avatar 4:02pm still b/p:

The expressway south of Boston passed right by a drive-in, and when I was still pretty young and spicy movies became a thing, one would give it a good intense check on the way by to see if you'd catch the briefest view of something spiiiiicy.

Great old Zorn album! My first introduction to his jump cut style.

That's what's voting is for. Hopefully when this is over, FL will be a blueish state, not even purple...
Avatar 4:13pm northguineahills:

I think Locus Solus was the first Zorn jump cut album I got, and I don't think I got that until '99.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Franco Twinkie:

I working on a TV commercial at Universal studios. One task I had to do was put curtains in the widows of the Psycho house. It was really filthy and hot inside as I was climbing around on the beds dressing in the drapery. There was a big anvil case sitting in the dirt with a tape loop inside that would go off every time a tour tram would go by and play the music from the shower scene where Janet Leigh is getting stabbed and the blood is going down the drain. I couldn't get out of there fast enough.
Avatar 4:15pm northguineahills:

I've met Zorn, I've djed w/ Anthony Coleman, I think it's a minor miracle I never met you, David (most likely had seen you at the same shows).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm david w:

Franco, that is deep. And ngh, we need to set a date.

From 2000-2007, I was going to 5 shows a week, mostly at Tonic (got in for free, and drank for free). After Tonic closed, I realized, I couldn't work and also see shows almost every night, as I was in my 30s and my body wasn't rebounding as it once did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm david w:

Ah, Tonic. We definitely passed by there.

It seems like a lot of things happen in a Spillane novel.

I wish we'd had jumpsuits.

can you believe the auto correct? I wrote jump cuts!!!
Avatar 4:38pm TDK60:

A friend turned me onto an educational site that has free movies, about 1,500 (along with audio books, lessons, etc.) called Open Culture. The movies are mostly old so public domain.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm chresti:

You did the sampling, David?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm david w:

You can find me in the strings, chorale parts, and what Zorn called "horrible noise".

Morning matinee show. Sorta quiet amongst the empty seats. Interesting how Martin's Pepperland suite has virtually no reference to any of the Beatles tunes. And am compelled to note that I previously was surprised at some hostile reactions to singing of Nancy Sinatra. The opening tune helps me better understand it and better appreciate how Lee Hazlewood crafted productions for her.
