Cool disc for Jerry Goldsmith fans! World premiere release in any format of complete original soundtrack from 1968 mod-era spy tale set within British Intelligence, directed by David Greene, starring Dirk Bogarde, Susannah York, Sir John Gielgud. World of then-high tech computers, soaring IQ's, secret codes and staff of crackerjack decoders captured by composer with meld of snappy rhythm, cool melody. Main theme, rooted firmly in major key, remains one of Goldsmith's most infectious. In balance is richly expressive trumpet line for more romantic side of tale. Mystery, suspense also plays solid role, especially in latter cues. Entire score presented from mono elements as heard in picture, courtesy Paramount Pictures. CD also offers cool extra treat! After exhaustive search, actual multi-track stereo masters for original 1968 Dot label album surface, courtesy UMG and Geffen, allowing first ever licensed release on CD. Stunning audio quality allows terrific presentation of classic record made by Goldsmith (and Dot producer Tom Mack) way back when! While a mere 25 minutes long, their album encapsulated major thematic material beautifully. And another extra!
