Rejected & Unused Scores, Vol.1
Here's a cornucopia of, well, rejected and unused scores and it's a fantastic selection. It's like the Rejection Hall of Fame's Greatest Hits. A lot of the famous ones are here by some of the top composers in the business.
In some cases, you can understand why it was not used. Not because it was necessarily bad, but because it wasn't quite right for the film. In other cases, like, say, Goldeneye, when you consider that they opted for Eric Serra instead of Michael J. Lewis, you do have to wonder.
This is some fantastic music, so enjoy!

I think I could've written a better score for "Goldeneye" than the score they actually used! Ick.
They should just open their wallets and hire John Barry to score one more Bond.
And without knowing anything about your composing skills, I would have to guess that you are 100 percent correct about that. :))
I've heard that in the past John Barry wasn't interested in doing another Bond score because he had done so many, but I don't know if it's true. It would be great if he would do one more though! (Maybe they could call it, 'James Bond: The Revenge of Eric Serra').
any and all Morricone and Barry (especially unreleased!) are always most welcome.
thanks as always!
