This is the mother lode!

"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!"
