Anchored by Ron Grainer's propulsive main and end titles, this volume features musical highlights of three Prisoner episodes ("Arrival," "Chimes of Big Ben," "A, B and C") as well as key snippets of dialogue. The cues here span library stock cues and the work of a number of British TV composers, ranging from tortuously treacly Muzak and jolly marching band music (Strauss's "Radetzky Waltz" in particular) to /5(23).
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/5(16).
