Because Guy Ritchie was tackling this subject,& also being a big fan of the original television series, I had to have this in my musical collection. Its great to hear this music unfettered from the TV pictures, & get to appreciate the themes in their fullness. For me, however the cherry on the cake, is all four season's interpretation of the brilliant Jerry Goldsmiths theme.
Lalo Schifrin's arrangement being the best.(In my humble opinion), Its an absolute tragedy that Guy Ritchie did not include either the original, or a modern update to this excellent score in his big screen re-make. It was as crucial to the TV show, as the Bond theme by Monty Norman/John Barry was/is to 007.
This is a superb CD. Now where did I put my Lava lamp?

This is the first of three volumes (all double discs, so six CDs in all!) of main themes and incidental scores from four seasons of the Man From U.N.C.L.E. and it's a real labour of love. Do not confuse this with other patched-up rip-off UNCLE collections that purport to be authentic soundtrack recordings; they're not, this is!

Film Score Monthly are to be commended for making these scores available and in such pristine sound quality too. They follow chronologically, from 1964 to '68 and demonstrate the effort that was taken in commissioning appropriate 'mood' music episode by episode. Much of the music, especially for the first season, has an ethereal mixture of jazz, electronic and percussive techniques that just work really well. The test of good TV and film scores are, I think, that they can be listened to as musical works in their own right - and this collection passes that test admirably. The whole thing is hugely evocative of both the UNCLE series and the '60s era.

Highly recommended.

Walk down memory lane and was a big fan of the series back in the late 60's and early 70's. Preferred the early series, which this Jerry Goldsmith music was the one rembered.

5.0 out of 5 stars At LAST the complete series ORIGINAL soundtrack, the wait is over! 12 July 2005
By JD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Many of us have always thought The Man From UNCLE had the best music for a TV series ever, and this three double CD release confirms this. Wow! I'd be just happy with one CD, but having SIX (three double CDs packages) is absolutely out of this world, I mean, a lifetime wait come true.

Indeed, this is an unbelievable collection of three double CDs packages with the complete series soundtrack, and I mean the complete music, not a tune is missing.

And this is the ORIGINAL Man From Uncle music. Let me stress the point: this is the four years ORIGINAL soundtrack with the original recordings as they were heard throughout the series, not a no-name orchestra doing personal versions of the stuff. The audio transfer is very, very good, the music from late episodes is even in stereo.

Each individual CD carries over 70 minutes of music. All in all there you have the four TV seasons main titles and all, absolutely all of TMFU unforgetable music.

This is not a chronological release, meaning, all CDs have a mix of music from all four TV seasons. Volume 1 is heavier on early TV seasons stuff, fans of Jerry Goldsmith will love it. Those of us who prefer what Gerald Fried and later Richard Shores did with TMFU music, then volume 2 is mandatory. If you are a fan, you can't miss any of these six CDs. However if buying all three double packages is too much for you, you must go with Volume 2, no questions asked. Volume three is the weakest of them as it brings "suites" and a whole CD with "The Girl From Uncle" soundtrack, but you have a bonus "Open Channel D" beeper.

Each package is gorgeous, each with a glossy color booklet with extensive liner notes with details on how each tune was written to a specific TV series episode and how it was used onwards. You have bios on the composers, on how the recordings were made, even an overview on how many instruments were available in each of the years the music was recorded.

So, throw away your Hugo Montenegro Man From Uncle CD, this is the REAL thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the mother lode! 13 Sept. 2007
By allemande - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
How gratifying it is to find TWO other enthusiastic reviews of this music! I will add just a couple of my own notes to those other writings.
First, this is--finally--the original music from "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.". The CDs described here contain the various versions of the theme, as well as music composed for individual episodes, as it was recorded and used in those episodes. These are NOT cheesy re-recordings ("authorized" or not); they are the real thing, in great sound.
Next, although this review appears in the listing for "Volume 1", there are three 2-CD volumes available, well-described by other reviewers, plus a fourth single-disc issue of music (again, authentic and original) from two theatrical "Man From U.N.C.L.E." movies, whose release illustrated the enthusiasm that existed for this show and its stars.
The four "U.N.C.L.E" releases come from Film Score Monthly, nominally a magazine but in recent times also an outstanding CD imprint with a growing list of titles to stir a movie and television fanatic's heart. These FSM CD albums have been limited to 3,000 copies apiece, and presumably will not be re-issued. That makes time a factor in acquiring these titles. Anyone whose pulse rate increases reading these reviews should visit Film Score Monthly online to learn more. Happy listening!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Album Better Priced at SAE 10 May 2015
By William D Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you are a fan of the show, you have to have this soundtrack CD. It includes hours of all-original music culled from the television series. For some reason, this title is very expensive on Amazon.com as of this posting. I recommend you consider making your purchase from Screen Archives Entertainment (SAE) where it still sells at list price (about $25). The pressing of the CD is limited to 3,000 copies, so don't wait too long. Also, I highly recommend The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Vol. 2 Soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic TV soundtrack's at their best 4 Jun. 2012
By D. Case - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This series of a pair of intrepid U.N.C.L.E agents was, at the height of the Bond craze, the most popular show on television...

In the fullness of time the show hasn't aged as well, the MGM backlot served as the show's locations and limited it- sadly- to a fairly routine series as far as plots and execution goes. An excellent cast helped.

But the music is another thing altogether.

Jerry Goldsmith wrote a full score for the series, and then other composers like Morton Stevens and Hugo Friedhoefer amongst others would have their shot at an episode using Goldsmith's themes as a template. This particular two CD collection has more than a dozen (early) episodes on it with full musical codas from that episode in a 5 or 6 minute bit. The sound quality is spectacular, and these are Original Soundtrack recordings, not hastily re-arranged copies.

There is a companion CD to this which has the later seasons (three and four) on it; it, too is a nice plus for any collection.

This all works quite well in the 'bachelor pad mix' which any single guy will tell you is an important ingredient to any interesting evening at home- but even if that isn't your scene you will thoroughly enjoy this outstanding collection of 60's music, lovingly packaged and anotated...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection! 21 Feb. 2012
By EG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. [Original Television Soundtrack] is a long awaited treasure. As a fan of the show, I had enjoyed the original music from the series, but there were no recordings available of it for decades. (I had only Hugo Montenegro's variations of the music, and a homemade reel-to reel recording of the theme.) This cd is an excellent compilation of selections from all four U.N.C.L.E. seasons, which showcases the changing 'mood' of the series. The liner notes provide a wealth of information about the music, the composers, and the episodes these tracks were selected from. This recording, and the companion Volume 2, are highly recommended for all U.N.C.L.E. fans - and any fan of '60s soundtrack recordings.
