The sparse investment by 20th Century Fox in the fourth Apes movie, Conquest of the Planet of the Apesmay have had something to do with the decision to hire a relatively unknown young jazz musician to compose the film soundtrack.
His score for Conquest had, like Jerry Goldsmith's soundtrack for Escape from the Planet of the Apesquite a contemporary feel, using many rock instruments. It stretched to include gentle easy-listening as well as harsh, aggressive pieces to accompany the scenes of rioting apes. Unfortunately, some of his cues were dropped from the final cut of John McCormack - Who Knows? / When The Dew Is Falling (Shellac) film, including his original seven-minute finale which was removed due to a revised ending.
In some cases his material was replaced with stock recordings from previous Apes films. However, Scott's score is one of the more accessible soundtracks when listened to in isolation, and would inevitably secure a release on record eventually. The disc also added the theme tune from the Planet of the Apes TV series by Lalo Schifrinwhich would later feature in a separate TV series soundtrack album from the Intrada label Sign In Don't have an account?
