Jason King: Original Soundtrack
Never previously released and compiled from the original master tapes, this two-CD set comprises the themes and incidental music for Jason King, containing around 70 pieces of music which were specially composed for the series. Laurie Johnson’s melodies transport the listener around the world with the playboy novelist, as he is approached by a femme fatale in Athens, finds himself the subject of a contract in Paris, attempts to lose weight at a health farm near Munich, combats a computerised crime syndicate in London, is supplied with cryptic phrases in the Caribbean, dances at discos in Switzerland, leads a trio of detectives in Moscow, studies comic strips in Hong Kong, deals with a doppelgänger in Istanbul, investigates murder in Rome, sees his stories brought to life as films at a British film studio... and attempts to sell his hero Mark Caine to the American TV networks. Including extensive liner notes from archive television historian Andrew Pixley, this set is an essential purchase for all ITC aficionados.
