Default Hi from Stu Phillips

Hi fans of the original BSG. Just thought that I'd say hello and hope that you are all well. For those of you in England... near Birmingham, I will be appearing at The Memorabilia Show & Convention on Aug. 13-14th. It's at the NEC Center. Drop by and say hello. I'll be happy to autograph any old Stu Phillips records you might have.

Stu, thanks for dropping in to wish us all well and we do likewise to you! I've also seen you take time to do this at other places like Film Score Monthly (BTW everyone, Stu's scores for Knight Rider are now available for purchase going through www.filmscoremonthly.com) and it's always nice to see that kind of connection with the fan base.

Hello Stu,

Great job on the score to BSG. It's one of my all time favorite scores. For me, it ranks right up there with John Williams.

Default music by stu in surf party

Okay, folks, I am not making this up...
I was garage saling in Kentucky and in one small town I found an old VHS entitled "Surf Party." It was a documentary, I believe from 1969, about three surfers traveling around the world. It was released by Prism Entertainment in 1989. The music was composed by Stu Phillips and the songs were sung by Dino, Desi & Billy.
The music reminded me of two vastly different shows: the soundtrack to Chariots of the Gods? and the incidental background music of The Partridge Family. Neither show existed yet in 1969. In other words, it was very mellow music, and at times surreal.
As for the movie itself, well, one thing that surprised me was that one of the surfers was a girl. Girl surfers in documentaries are unusual even today, and were almost non-existent in the 1960s. I did like the movie, in fact, I thought it was a little better done than Endless Summer, which always seemed a little arrogant to me.
So my comments are:
1. This movie isn't listed in the IMDB (there's a Surf Party listed there, but it wasn't this), and isn't in Stu's credits, so I think they should be.
2. I bet in a million years you never expected to see the names Stu Phillips; Dino, Desi & Billy; Chariots of the Gods?; and The Partridge Family in the same post!
3. How on earth did a surf documentary VHS end up at a garage sale at a little town in Kentucky?!

Hello Mr Phillips! I'm a huge sci fi/fantasy and BSG fan! I'm also a huge fan of music and am a musician songwriter myself! Your BSG thems score is just as memorable, unique and resounding as John Williams' STAR WARS theme score. I am one of those fans who does not recognize Sci Fi Channel's new show as sanctioned BSG in any way, shape of form. SFC's BSG's music and score doesn't hold a candle to your genius work. I can't even remember or hum one bar of it for that matter. Anyways! You are very appreciated!
