Customer Review

on 4 November 2007
It is great to have the music from episodes of The Avengers on CD for the first time. Laurie Johnson's music is such an essential part of the TV series and it is gratifying to have his music recognised in its own right. CD1 has these tracks. There are standouts such as those from the episode "the Joker" with its haunting themes and others from the episodes "dead man's treasure", "what the butler saw" "A funny thing happened on the way to the station" and more. Upon hearing these the visuals from the series immediately spring to mind. Other tracks are of course "mood music" which were used in scenes to convey tension etc and are perhaps not ideally suited to be heard in isolation. But that is the nature of such soundtracks and it is still great to hear them. The only minor niggle is the use of the Patrick Macnee/Linda Thorson credit-title themes in place of the classic Macnee/Diana Rigg themes but i presume this was a personal choice of Laurie Johnson as, apparently, he chose the selected tracks himself. So a second volume perhaps...? Disc 2 contains other tv and film themes by Jonnson such as "the new Avengers" (which might have been better placed as the last track on disc 1 for continuity) Disc 3 is Johnson's music for military bands. But disc 1 is the one most will buy this for and if you are a fan of The Avengers this CD set is a must have.
