5.0 out of 5 stars The prisoner file 2, 4 Nov 2011
Marcia "marcia" (england) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Prisoner - File #2 (Audio CD)
Volume Two of the Prisoner is excellent. There are three volumes and this second disc takes us through the episodes Free For All, The General, Many happy returns, Dance of the Dead, Checkmate, Hammer into Anvil and A change of mind.
This CD album is very interesting. It uses various pieces of music both from library stock of already established composers and original compositions by various composers used in the series such as Albert Elms and Robert Farnon.
The album begins with the main theme by Ron Grainer. This time this version is a re recording by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. The original recording is available on volume one This re recording is very good and sounds great.

These releases are also unique because they include brief excerpts of dialogue from the actual TV series. We actually get Patrick McGoohan saying things like "Elections? In this place?"
These excerpts are sandwiched between music tracks and they help to give the album an atmosphere and authority.
The CD presentation is excellent with some good photos from the series in the booklet. The sound is very good with a great programme of tracks.
This release along with volume one and three will appeal to anyone interested in the TV series the Prisoner.
I highly recommend this volume two along with volume one and three and if you are a big fan of the music to the show then I recommend the soundtrack releases from Network DVD. There are two CD versions. An expensive three disc set or a highlights CD. However this release it great on its own with its music and actual clips from the show.
