BACK, JACK, DO IT AGAIN
Many of you may kno that composers did variations on compositions for various scenes..and often redid them. But I never though Langworth Filmmusic head Jack Shaindlin did, though. With a career spanning these titles and detailed at Yowp! Stuff About Early Hanna-Barbera cartoons but sadly missing from historian Dave Shields's otherwise noteworthy "The History of production Music" website, which does make use of researcher Paul Mandell, Jack did do many later 60s remakes [in the CineMusic ediiton of the earlier Lnagworth FilMusic library] of earlier cues, as the ones mentioned [BMI.com] and with a number of ghostwriters, but chances are deiniftiely that the familiar ones are the original. This is not meantto be a large post but to make an odd comment or two about older stock cue being remade [and in following months, I may do a piece on variants of such]--and to do a Steely Dan song title quote.
