World premiere release of two early seventies TV movie soundtracks by Jerry Goldsmith! Complete score from each thriller appears, mastered from pristine condition original 1/4" mono session masters vaulted at CBS. A STEP OUT OF LINE stars Peter Falk, Peter Lawford, Vic Morrow, has trio of stars planning perfect heist when things go terribly wrong. Goldsmith supplies requisite action, suspense but also writes several somber string-based cues that were deleted from final picture, including finale of score and film! They are heard here for first time ever! BROTHERHOOD OF THE BELL stars Glenn Ford, Rosemary Forsythe, has stars caught up in deadly ever-spiraling web of conspiracy. Goldsmith creates one of his most complex, cerebral scores ever, then balances with straight academia theme for strings. Results are fascinating blend of subtle drama, outright terror! Two of composers most vivid TV movie scores ever! Jerry Goldsmith conducts.

Tech Talk From The CD Producer…
In the early seventies Jerry Goldsmith was working in both the movie and television medium with equal comfort. His peerless talent was on display whether it be Patton for the big screen or QB VII for the small one. Two fine examples of his music for the smaller screen are being offered for the first time anywhere with this CD.
A Step Out Of Line (1971) and The Brotherhood Of The Bell (1970) were both made by Cinema Center 100 Productions for broadcasting on the CBS television network. We are pleased to present each complete score in mono as recorded for the films, transferred directly from the original ¼" 15 ips mono master reels for each respective work. The session mixes were originally made by Len Engel and the masters were vaulted by CBS in mint condition.
A Step Out Of Line includes several cues not used in the finished film, reflecting changes made during post-production. They lean towards the more serious side of the score, with the unused ending cue ("What They Knew") being of particular interest. It is a somewhat subdued and sobering piece for strings that was replaced in the finished film with source music. For more on this see Jeff Bond’s liner notes contained inside this booklet. On the other hand, The Brotherhood Of The Bell was spotted well during post-production and the resulting score remains pretty much intact in the finished film with nearly every cue used when and where it was intended. The music Goldsmith wrote for this thriller remains especially unique with a striking meld of straight-forward academia and terrifying atonality delivered via an array of strings, percussion, piano, organ and electronics that included Goldsmith’s signature echoplex.
So now hear what you already knew: Jerry Goldsmith was an unsurpassed master at scoring for pictures both big and small.
Composed and Conducted by Jerry Goldsmith.
