Buy it... only to satisfy your curiosity about Richard Band's career in general, especially in the realm of television, because this sampler is not meant to be a standalone, coherent listening experience.

Avoid it... if you're expecting to be satisfied by the quantity of material from any given show that you see in the listings.

Up and Down: Richard Band (Compilation) Composer Richard Band's career has crossed between the realms of film, television, special presentations, CD-ROM games, and commercials, with genres that include drama, horror, and comedy. He is best known for his works in the horror film genre, thanks to the extensive partnership with his father and brother, both of whom were veterans of B-rate horror filmmaking in the 1980's and early 90's. When that collaboration came to an end due to the cumulative failure of those productions, Band found himself in a career built around television episode scoring, often working on well-known series ranging from "Stargate SG-1" to even an episode of the History Channel's "Modern Marvels" series. He eventually earned an Emmy nomination for his work on one of several episodes he scored in the 2005 series "Masters of Horror." Multiple promotional albums with Band's music have been pressed through the years, and much like the Arthur B. Rubinstein compilation produced by the same label a dozen months prior, a two-CD promotional set released for Band in early 2000 offers an equally wide and comprehensive sampling of a composer's career. The material presented on this lengthy set represents mostly Band's dramatic and comedy efforts, with just a hint of his trademark horror works. Since he is a versatile artist, especially in the effort of making the best of a moderately sized orchestra and array of electronics, it is likely that the majority of the works on this set are for projects that many listeners will not be familiar with. Nevertheless, Band's capabilities, when he is presented with adequate time and a decent orchestra, would suit a major motion picture project quite well. Before jumping to any conclusions about the listenability of this double-CD set, it's important to remember its purpose. As a promotional sampler, the contents of "Up and Down" are presented in such a fashion to gain the attention of (and impress) those who would be in the position of hiring Band. Because of this, you can easily jump to the type of music that most interests you, whether it is adventure, ethnic influence, family comedy, animation, contemporary romance, etc.
