    As I did with a few "Dallas" scores, here is my new YouTube Playlist for the best scores of "Knots Landing", starting with the Pilot score composed by Jerrold Immel. The sound quality is not as good as I wished, but I tried my best and I hope you enjoy them. After this one I will be posting also today the scores for "Cement the Relationship", a special montage with the Laura-related episodes, and a compilation of the season cliffhanger themes.

    Wonderful! The minute and a half from 1:50 makes me tingly whenever I hear it. I can almost taste that salt water.


    I'm looking forward to them, Toni.

    Are you planning to do any further Season Premieres at some point? There's some great music in them, most notably from Jerrold Immel himself. ;)

    Thanks a lot Mel! I was just thinking that the Knots composers were unique in the sense that they composed special themes for finales and premieres instead of re-using the same old tunes (John * cough * Parker on "Dallas"...).

    You can suggest more themes or episodes in this thread. I will try to record them once Christmas holidays are gone.

    Fantastic video, I've been looking for something like this for a long time. Too bad the Knots Landing score hasn't been released and probably will never be.
    The early seasons had some wonderful themes, really great music. I'm looking forward to more of these videos!

    Here´s the next one: A suite with all the music cues of "Cement the Relationship", probably my favorite of all the season cliffhanger scores. There´s a heavy influence (or is it a homage?) from Hitchcock´s scores signed by Bernard Herrmann, also hinted by one of the related episode titles, "The Trouble with Peter". Listening to a high quality orchestral recording of this score would be a blast!;)


    More coming soon! :)

    Yes - it is quite Herrmann-esque in places.

    I love the frenetic part at around 8:55.

    Here we go with new score selections, sorry for the delay! :innocent:

    This time the video is dedicated to the Laura character, with selections from episodes "The Lie", "The Gift of Life" and "Noises Everywhere". Enjoy them! Next: the Suite for the KL Cliffhangers.

    Great compilation. I love the pilot score.
    I also really love the sad score they used, for instance when Sid died.
    Like Michele Lee said on the Block Party -' there are moments in life when you don't need words, and that's what knots landing did very well -- they took poignant moments and they took out the dialogue and you just take a trip down the hallway, with Karen "
