The Hollywood Years Vol. 1 is the first issue of 'The Hollywood Years' series, intended to feature "TD's leftover scores, songs and sequences". It consists of the following releases:



Regardless of other announcements, the series has never been extended with further releases.


Liner notes for the CD release"Writing scores for motion pictures very often means leaving a lot of material unused on sheets of paper, tapes or various electronic data carriers. This can happen because of subjective opinions and certain requirements a director or producers come along with. Sometimes for reasons never really understood by the composer, a score has to be entirely re-written. Once a production is finished, the composer is left in the studio with lots of theme variations, cues which got bump off by last minute decisions or material the director even did not want to listen to. On request the composer sometimes has to come up with a first musical draft to show the producer and the director the perspective of a possible musical direction. Such material will later rarely be used for the final production.

TD did work on many Hollywood scores over the years. Some productions never saw the big screens, others have been quite successful on box offices round the globe. Nevertheless, all of them had one thing in common: they have filled the TD library with unused music material. The first two releases of The Hollywood Years (Vol. 1 and 2) contain material composed by Edgar and Jerome Froese exclusively. The songtitles will not refer to the titles of the motion pictures the material was written for."


The material on this CD consists of previously unreleased material with the exceptions of Goldhunter, which is a remix of Craving For Cardomon (from Ça Va - Ça Marche - Ça Ira Encore), and Law Paradiso, which is identical to One Fine Day In Siberia (from Edgar Froese's solo album Beyond The Storm).




The Hollywood Years Vol. 1 was re-released in 1999 with new cover artwork.


In March 2009 the album was re-released with different cover design as part of an extensive digipack series (consisting of a total of more than 60 CD and DVD releases) by the Germany based Membran record label.
