The Saint/Secret Agent collects 24 excerpts of incidental music featured in the television series by Edwin Astley and his orchestra with arrangements by Ken Jones. This is fun stuff in small doses, similar to the James Bond soundtracks. You can't go wrong with titles like "I Wonder Where the Microdot Went?," "Vulgar Olga," "The Saint Takes a Ride," and "Main Theme From 'The Saint'. It's sure to bring back fond memories for those who remember the original series. By the way, "Secret Agent Man" is the same song Johnny Rivers.
Theme music composer. Edwin Astley (B/W) Edwin Astley and Leslie Charteris (colour). The Saint began as a straightforward mystery series, but over the years adopted more secret agent- and fantasy-style plots. It also made a well-publicised switch from black-and-white to colour production midway through its run. The early episodes are distinguished by Moore breaking the fourth wall and speaking to the audience in character at the start of every episode. All of the colour episodes have been released in seven two-disc sets, as well as in one 14-disc "megaset". The two-part episodes are only in movie form.
The Saint/Secret Agent Soundtrack. MARVELLOUS music to spy by is simply fantastic and brings back wonderful memories of the two hit series, 'The Saint' and 'Secret Agent' or 'Danger Man'. Being an advid fan of both Saint and Secret Agent series this album is a marvelous addition to anyones collection. I believe some of the best TV soundtracks were made in the the 1960's. The only complaint I have is the fact that the albums featured on this CD are to short in duration.

The Saint" is a theme tune for The Saint composed first as a whistled melody by author Leslie Charteris himself, before being expanded by Edwin Astley 1962, and later Brian Dee, Irving Martin, and Orbital in television and film versions. The track is an updated version of Edwin Astley's theme music from the 1960s TV series The Saint and plays over a scene towards the end of the film. Orbital's arrangement alters the piece from waltz time to common time and places the melody on top of a driving electronica rhythm. The B-side, "The Sinner", is an original composition developing elements of Orbital's arrangement from the A-side. The Saint" was one of Orbital's biggest hit singles
