Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: THE SAINT (1965)/SECRET AGENT (1966).
Original score composed by Edwin Astley.
Originally released on RCA.
The Saint/Secret Agent collects 24 excerpts of incidental music featured in the television series by Edwin Astley and his orchestra with arrangements by Ken Jones. This is fun stuff in small doses, similar to the James Bond soundtracks. You can't go wrong with titles like "I Wonder Where the Microdot Went?," "Vulgar Olga," "The Saint Takes a Ride," and "Main Theme From 'The Saint'." It's sure to bring back fond memories for those who remember the original series. By the way, "Secret Agent Man" is the same song Johnny Rivers had a hit with, but it's not his vocal on this compilation. ~ Al Campbell

Rating 5.0 SUPERB 1960S SPY/ADVENTURE TELEVISION SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION Music Lover: from LOUISVILLE, KY US -- January, 21, 2016

THIS INSPIRED COLLECTION OF THE SAINT AND SECRET AGENT FROM THE 1960S IS A COLLECTOR'S GEM. EDWIN ASTLEY COMPOSED THE SOUNDTRACKS FOR BOTH SERIES, ACHIEVING A DISTINCTIVE MOOD FOR EACH CREATION. WITH THE SAINT AND THE CASTING OF ROGER MOORE (10 YEARS BEFORE HE WOULD ENGRAVE HIS IMPRIMATUR ON 007), THE CHARM AND CHARISMA OF LESLIE CHARTERIS' CREATION WAS BESTOWED UPON THE VIEWER EACH WEEK. THE CLASSIC SAINT THEME, 'CHAISE-LOUNGE', 'YING-TONG-PIDDLE-AY-KILT', WITH ITS ORIENTAL SHADING, 'CANTINA' AND 'SWINGING SIMON' CAPTURE THE MOOD AND INTERNATIONAL FLAVOR OF THE SERIES. SECRET AGENT EMBLAZONED PATRICK MCGOOHAN AS JOHN DRAKE, THE ERA'S INTRIGING ICON OF THE GLOBE-TRAVELLING SPY. KNOWN AS 'DANGER MAN' IN ITS NATIVE BRITAIN, THE SERIES ACTUALLY DEBUTED ON CBS IN 1961 WITH 39 HALF-HOUR EPISODES, REINVENTED IN 1964 AS 'SECRET AGENT' FOR CBS WITH FULL-HOUR EPISODES, RETAINING THE 'DANGER MAN' MANTLE IN THE U.K. THE CLASSIC 'SECRET AGENT' THEME, EVOKING THE ICONIC JOHNNY RIVERS PIECE, BEGINS THE SECOND COLLECTION, FOLLOWED BY 'HIGH WIRE' (THE ACTUAL 'DANGER MAN' TITLE THEME) WITH 'MAI AU COEUR', 'MIO AMORE STA LONTANO' AND 'DRAKE IN THE NEW WORLD' CAPTURING THE DIVERSE AND TRAVELLED MOODS OF THE SERIES. CONSISTING OF TWELVE TRACKS FOR EACH SERIES, REPRESENTING THEIR RESPECTIVE SPANS, EACH COLLECTION ORIGINALLY APPEARED IN RCA EDITIONS IN 1966. THIS COLLECTION IS THE PERFECT COMPANION TO ROLAND SHAW'S JAMES BOND AND SPY-THEME COLLECTION.
