Reels X-265/X-266, X-269/X-270 and X-271/X-272 are only missing.

X-263/X-264 or X-265/X-266 is likely to be MMSE-18 - Many Faces.


MMSE-28 and MMSE-30 were also supplied on X-269/X-270 and X-271/X-272

I was under the assumption that the S series only went up to 53/54. Well, that seems to be wrong since S-83/S-84 happened to pop up on eBay today. It has Loose/Cookerly/Cadkin cues going by the OK codes. In any case, I've went ahead and purchased it. The same seller has another 'missing' Hi-Q up right now; X-63/X-64. I'm curious to see what others they end up listing, if they have any more.

This is surprising! Now I'm expecting the "S" series has a ton of MIA albums with removed/replaced content like the D-series.

Question for those with older editions of Hi-Q catalogues on them:
Is there any info out there on who the original "HM" (e.g. the original D-55/56) and "TI" (the prefix of the original L-65/66) are? I've been curious as to the identity of them for a while. Since the catalog Certainly has in his MEGA is a revised edition printed after these were withdrawn from the library, there's no info on these.

A few other reels have HM cues which are credited to Jan Kimberly. Maybe it's him on D-55/56 too. There's a chance the composer is someone entirely different since the rest of the Kimberly reels are much newer than 1958 though. The TI cues on the other hand are a total mystery.

I honestly have doubts they're Jan Kimberly, as that D-series album predates when Kimberly and other Danish composers that Ole Georg brought on joined the library, being released in 1958 (hence my saying they were the "original" HM). More likely to me it's a currently unknown composer under the prefix whose stuff was replaced with the Kimberly material in the 1970s. "SM" was another prefix that was originally reserved for Alexander Laszlo cues (none of his reels are out there, though) that was later replaced with Robert Ascot material.

Jan Kimberly is Ole Georg along with Henrik Nielsen, Neil Amsterdam, Robert Ascot, Tom Elliot and Jack Mayborn. I asked Yowp one time about who was the original HM composer, he thinks it might be someone named Henry Russell.

The ASCAP database pretty much confirms he wrote for Hi-Q. He provided cues for "Hip Hip Hurry," one of the Seely Six cartoons at Warners, as well as "The Alphabet Conspiracy," which is full of Hi-Q music, and the original Gumby (one of them was "Robot Rumpus").

I've known of Russell's name for a long time, but I have a hunch the "R" cues featured on the early S series and a few early X albums are his instead. It's possible the HM tracks are also his, just like how there's multiple prefixes assigned to Phil Green material (EM, PG, etc.)
