Images of Autumn Grace Our Videos



The Music Man, whom we saw in a recent blog posting, has just completed another set of original instrumental musical compositions that we have enjoyed using as soundtracks to our various recent book trailers and other videos.  The CD is called Images of Autumn (2011) and we would like to reprise some of our book trailers so you may listen to excerpts of this fine music.  But first, some legal boilerplate.


Here are the track list and liner notes.  As always, click to bigify the images.



We haven't used all of these pieces as soundtracks yet to our book trailers or other videos, but we're working night and day (more or less) to find suitable subject matter.  Since the music brings our videos to life, we want to be judicious in our selection process.  That takes time, and minions, unfortunately, need sleep, food, and other creature comforts.  As for moi, I work 24-7.  Feels that way, in any event.

We've included a few book trailers showcasing various different excerpts from Images of Autumn.  We encourage you to listen through the credits until the very end of each video, as you don't want to miss any of the music.  Plus, there's a music credit that will identify the pieces used as soundtracks.



The Man in the Moon, by William Joyce
(Guardians of Childhood Series)


The Night in Lisbon, by Erich Maria Remarque


Mike Nelson's Death Rat! a Novel, by Michael J. Nelson


All My Friends Are Dead, by Avery Monsen & Jory John


Bid Time Return (i.e., Somewhere in Time), by Richard Matheson


Secrets of the Magic Ring, by Karen McQuestion


A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, by Betty Smith


13 Little Blue Envelopes, by Maureen Johnson

The Music Man's original compositions grace well over 200 of our videos on the MPL YouTube Channel.  Prolific, in a word.  We can hardly keep up!

Keep watching our latest book trailers and other videos, as we have at least a dozen more to make using excerpts from Images of Autumn.  I'm open to suggestions for possible subject matter for the book trailers.  Just leave me your comments.  Much appreciated.





Music is a Joy,

  1. Great soundtracks by the Music Man! The Music Man's website looks good. Are the new CD or other soundtracks for sale to the public?

  2. Ellie,

    Unfortunately, the Music Man's website isn't set up for CD sales. You can email Scowl-Face, however, and he could email you MP3 files of the songs. For my loyal readers, it's free! SF's email is: billb@mooresville.lib.in.us
    Thanks for your interest! MM will be pleased.

    We've uploaded complete MP3 files of the music from "Images of Autumn." You may download them free from our Mediafire download page at http://www.mediafire.com/?adkdo3xctbn4m
    If you checkmark all the files, I think you may download them simultaneously.
