Product Description

Every government has its secret service branch: America, its CIA; France, Deuxieme Bureau; England, MI5. NATO also has its own. A messy job? Well that s when they usually call on me, or someone like me, Oh yes, my name is Drake, John Drake.


Never previously released and compiled from the original master tapes, this two-disc set comprises all the existing pieces of Edwin Astley s celebrated music for the half-hour episodes of Danger Man, containing over 90 pieces which were specially commissioned for the series. Including extensive liner notes from archive television historian Andrew Pixley, this set is an essential purchase for all ITC aficionados.

Edwin Astley composed this wonderful music for the original Danger Man TV series. This is the music highlights from the series. The music is really very good.
the Original series was just half hour episodes and this two disc CD set in a DVD style case offers all the surviving pieces of recordings by Astley for the series.

Astley was a British Composer who composed a lot of music but was famous for creating some of the most successful scores for Television series. He composed a wealth of music for ITC based programmes including The Saint, The Baron, Gideon's way, Randall and Hopkirk and Danger Man.

Here in the soundtrack to Danger Man we get rich melodies and strong arrangements. There is a wide variety of music influences with strong big band, Jazz and pop variations. The music sets a great atmosphere of action, tension, relaxation and emotion.
The original main theme called The Danger Man Theme became a popular tune in its own right. Also the second, third and fourth series had a different main theme. The main theme called "High Wire became a hit record in its own right.

It would have been better to have had a true compositional set of pieces arranged for a true soundtrack album or concert performance. But this was not a priority during the sixties and the music was regarded as "incidental" and therefore Astley did not create such a conceptional soundtrack score. Therefore this release is actually a full set of music cues and recordings made for the Television programme soundtrack and used to set the mood of individual scenes. However this is a good thing. We get the original music cues, the original recordings composed and performed by Edwin Astley. There is no other way to get this music.
