Buy it... if you seek two orchestral scores (ranging from average to enjoyable) from very early in John Debney's career.

Avoid it... if you expect either score to feature the complexity of construct and density of performance heard in later Debney works.

The Eyes of the Panther/Not Since Casanova: (John Debney) The two films represented on this album are unrelated except in the facts that most fans have not heard of them and that they are both relatively early efforts in composer John Debney's career. This album can be deceiving in its treatment of what it erroneously calls "Eye of the Panther." Based on one part of the collection of supernatural stories by Ambrose Bierce, The Eyes of the Panther (its actual name) was one episode in Showtime's "Nightmare Classics" series that debuted in 1989. The series failed after just a handful of episodes, and The Eyes of the Panther was certainly not its highlight, providing an unengaging examination of the love story between an Old West man and a woman who turns into a panther at night. As a horror genre tale, The Eyes of the Panther was technically Debney's first outright horror assignment. A few years earlier, Not Since Casanova was Debney's second feature film score. The first film by independent director Brett Thompson, Not Since Casanova received little attention outside of the independent circuit, and, like The Eyes of the Panther, receives the vast majority of if publicity due to the involvement of the now-famous Debney. The story of Not Since Casanova is one of a man attempting to choose between seven girlfriends, each serving as a metaphor for larger societal issues in the 1980's. It's a lighthearted romantic flick with little demand on the brain. From the perspective of a Debney collector looking back at these two scores in retrospect, neither one will be particularly spectacular. Their constructs and renderings are somewhat simplistic and narrow.

labeled on the album. Producer Ford A. Thaxton
indicated in 1999 that the correct title for
track #8 should be "A Feminine Feline".
