Music Box Records in France have recently released a soundtrack CD for the 1980s series of The Saint which starred Simon Dutton. it’s a long overdue release of music composed by Serge Franklin from ‘The Brazilian Connection’, ‘The Blue Dulac’, and ‘The Big Bang’–as the accompanying booklet explains tapes for ‘The Software Murders’ couldn’t be located and ‘Fear in Fun Park’ and ‘Wrong Number’ had music composed by others. Were it not for the curious but effective use of the 1960s logo to promote the 1980s show, plus some painful errors in the sleeve notes, this would be an almost perfect release. You can order it directly from Music Box here, or if you’re in the USA order it here
