Stu phillips and don peake did some fantastic underscore work for this 1980's hit show, and It's Stu phillips' work on the show that is covered in this release.
The 40 tracks cover a few of the season 1 episodes and the pilot TVM, which was also shown as a two parter on some networks and channels. All of the tracks are in glorious stereo, with a fair amount of reverb as per the 1980's remit ( reverb was a big thing on 1980's music, wether chart or soundtrack, but that's for another time). The clarity is superb, the arrangements are emotive, evocative and have just the right hint of early 80's "synth stabs and flavours" to blend well with the orchestra.
If you're a fan of the show, especially the season one background music and vibe, then check it out. As per my reivew title, grab the dowload version and save yourself a huge sum of money in the bargain, too!
