All tunes work very well, “The Brady Bunch” had a surprisingly large musial output. They are not professional singers, but sweet, silck productions and lots of echo hide it well.

Time to change (groovy jam)

The Brady Bunch is an American sitcom created by Sherwood Schwartz and starring Robert Reed, Florence Henderson, and Ann B. Davis. The series revolved around a large blended family. The show originally aired from September 26, 1969 to March 8, 1974 on ABC and was subsequently syndicated internationally.

Robert Reed became increasingly jaded about appearing in the series, as he felt that his Shakespearean training would mean nothing if he became typecast in the “Mr. Brady” role. He frequently fought with producers to make changes in the show’s scripts in order to remove what he felt were unbelievable scenes or dialogue. Despite his battles, he was allowed to direct several episodes, “The Winner” (1971), “The Big Little Man” (1972), “How To Succeed In Business” (1973) and “Getting Greg’s Goat” (1973).

A 22-episode animated Saturday morning cartoon series, produced by Filmation and airing on ABC from 1972–74, about the Brady kids having various adventures. The family’s adults were never seen or mentioned, and the “home” scenes were in a very large well-appointed tree house. Several animals were regular characters, including two non-English speaking pandas (Ping and Pong), a talking bird (Marlon) who could do magic, and an ordinary pet dog (Mop Top, not Tiger). The first 17 episodes featured the voices of all six of the original child actors from the show, but Barry Williams, Maureen McCormick and Christopher Knight were replaced for the last five episodes due to a contract dispute.

The Brady Bunch Movie is a 1995 American comedy film based on the 1969–1974 television series The Brady Bunch. The film features all the original regular characters, all played by new actors. It also took the unusual route of placing the original sitcom characters, with their 1970s fashion sense and 1970s sitcom family morality, in a contemporary 1990s setting, and parodied the resulting culture clash. The film was a hit and was followed by A Very Brady Sequel in 1996 and a television film called The Brady Bunch in the White House in 2002.

Singles is the original soundtrack album to the film Singles, primarily focused on the ascendant grunge scene of the early 1990s.

“Singles helped crystallize the idea of the ‘Seattle scene’ in the mainstream public’s mind, and it was also one of the first big-selling ’90s movie soundtracks (it went platinum and reached the Top Ten) to feature largely new work from contemporary artists…it’s a milestone in the breakthrough of alternative rock into mainstream popular culture, neatly and effectively packaging the Seattle phenomenon for the wider national consciousness.” Steve Huey

It also features contributions from Minneapolis’s Paul Westerberg (his first solo material after the breakup of The Replacements), Chicago’s The Smashing Pumpkins, and past Seattle rockers Jimi Hendrix and The Lovemongers (Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart). It was released on June 30, 1992.

The adaptation for the screen was written by Bruce Robinson and the soundtrack by Mike Oldfield, orchestrated by David Bedford.

The Killing Fields is a 1984 British drama film about the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, which is based on the experiences of two journalists: Cambodian Dith Pran and American Sydney Schanberg. The film, which won three Academy Awards, was directed by Roland Joffé and stars Sam Waterston as Schanberg, Haing S. Ngor as Pran, Julian Sands as Jon Swain, and John Malkovich as Al Rockoff.

The Killing Fields holds a 91% rating at the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, based on 35 reviews from notable publications.Critic Roger Ebert wrote in the Chicago Sun-Times: “The film is a masterful achievement on all the technical levels — it does an especially good job of convincing us with its Asian locations — but the best moments are the human ones, the conversations, the exchanges of trust, the waiting around, the sudden fear, the quick bursts of violence, the desperation.”

Pat Metheny blew me away with this soundtrack. Without it, the movie would have been much less than what it was. This is a must for any film score collector, or synthesizer lover. David Bowie’s vocal on this is my favorite song ever done by Bowie. by anomaly

The Association

“Along Comes Mary”

The Association is a pop music band from California in the folk rock or soft rock genre. During the 1960s, they had numerous hits at or near the top of the Billboard charts and were the lead-off band at 1967’s Monterey Pop Festival. Years active 1965–1978; 1979-present

“Cherish”

“This was a huge hit in the late 60’s. One day i started playing around with it and while under the hood of the tune I found myself marveling at all the interesting moves that happen with the chords, especially on the bridge. And I used the same whole step modulation for the final A section of the song that was on the record, although I added a tag that is really not exactly derived from any obvious single point in the tune”. – Pat Metheny

The movie “Les Parapluies de Cherbourg” is beautiful, tender, and alive with vivid color; this complete soundtrack recording is no different. From the breathy tones of the opening flute solo all the way through to the stirring finale, evey nuance and texture of Michel Legrand’s very colorful score is captured perfectly on this recording. If you’re unfamiliar with the music from this movie, you may be surprised to discover a number of familiar melodies — songs that have worked their way into today’s jazz and adult contemporary music repetoire (most natoably “Watch What Happens” and “I Will Wait For You”).

For me, the real treasure of this recording is the attention the engineers paid to capturing the cast members’ singing voices. The French language comes across crystal-clear. And even if you don’t speak or understand the language, the passion within each voice — the rainbow of emotions given forth from the singers, matched perfectly with the sweeping score — allows the listener to understand the emotinal gyst of what each character is expressing at that moment. And speaking of the cast — simply amazing. My favorite moment (I can’t accurately express why) is when Guy comes home to his aunt’s apartment and he runs into her caretaker, Madeline. When they greet each other (“Bon soir Guy”, “Bon soir Madeline”), there is such a “tender tension”, an unspoken adoration, I practically melt each time. Scott Weimer

Estranged from her parents and struggling to make ends meet, Patti decides to dive headlong into a carefree rock music lifestyle. The brother, Joe Rasnick, pulls away from rock music to provide some stability for his young nephew. It takes a family crisis to bring Patti back home and force her to face the prickly past with her mother.

“The music of a jazzman is always deeply subjective and personal in its essence , I would say that jazz music is a fundamental part of his daily experience.” Piero Umiliani, 1965

Piero Umiliani (17 July 1926 – 14 February 2001) was an Italian composer of film scores.

Umiliani was born in Florence, Tuscany. Like many of his Italian colleagues at that time, he composed the scores for many exploitation films in the 1960s and 1970s, covering genres such as spaghetti western, Eurospy, Giallo, and soft sex films.

“Mah Nà Mah Nà” (1968) was originally used for a Mondo documentary about Sweden (Svezia, Inferno e Paradiso), but was popularized by the Muppets, who covered the song several times.

Soundtrack: Audio recording created or used in film production or post-production

The soundtrack to the 1937 Walt Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was the first commercially issued film soundtrack.

The first musical film to have a commercially issued soundtrack album was MGM’s film biography of Show Boat composer Jerome Kern, Till the Clouds Roll By. The album was originally issued as a set of four 10-inch 78-rpm records.

Film score albums did not really become popular until the LP era, although a few were issued in 78-rpm albums. Alex North’s score for the 1951 film version of A Streetcar Named Desire was released on a 10-inch LP by Capitol Records and sold so well that the label later re-released it on one side of a 12-inch LP with some of Max Steiner’s film music on the reverse.

The 1968 Franco Zeffirelli film of Romeo and Juliet was issued as a 4-LP set, as a single LP with musical and dialogue excerpts, and as an album containing only the film’s musical score.

In the soundtrack genre there are four types of recordings:

1.Musical film soundtracks which concentrate primarily on the songs
(Examples: Grease, Singin’ in the Rain)

2.Film scores which showcase the background music from non-musicals
(Examples: Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings)

3.Albums of pop songs heard in whole or part in the background of non-musicals
(Examples: Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally...)

4.Video game soundtracks are often released after a game’s release, usually consisting of the background music from the game’s levels, menus, title screens, promo material (such as entire songs that only segments of which were used in the game), cut-screens and occasionally sound-effects used in the game. (Examples: Sonic Heroes, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)

Soundtrack on Comics

Daniel Clowes’ graphic novel Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron had an official soundtrack album. The original black-and-white Nexus #3 from Capitol comics included the “Flexi-Nexi” which was a soundtrack flexi-disc for the issue.

The Absolute Edition of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Black Dossier is planned to include an original vinyl record.
