There's of course Jerold Immel who did the theme and some of the early episodes (they use a couple of his moments from the miniseries several seasons into the show every now and then), and Bruce Broughton gets lots of accolades in the peak middle seasons. One from the early seasons who often catches my ear is Richard Lewis Warren. When I hear something that catches my attention, often string writing, I'll occasionally head over to imdb to see who wrote the score - and more often than not, that's who it was. I think maybe 'Double Wedding' is his first appearance, and one sequence that's always jumped out at me is the string flourish as Amanda runs over to Bobby, mistaking him for Jock in The Wheeler Dealer. John Parker, on the other hand is hit and miss (mostly miss) for me. I like a couple of his character themes here and there, and the guitar and snare drum during Jock's showdown with Tom Owens in The Dove Hunt was fantastic, but too often his scores with the electric bass and drums sound like something from a generic 70s cop show instead of a drama - far more 'throwaway' and less 'rich' than what Warren comes up with, usually. Any other favorites out there?
