Howard Blake's The Avengers
19-Jun-2011 - The music to the classic 1960's cult show The Avengers has long been popular amongst fans of the show and music lovers, but so far, only the Johnny Dankworth and Laurie Johnson soundtracks have been available. Howard Blake (probably best known now for The Snowman) was brought in on the recommendation of Bernard Herrmann to write the soundtrack for ten episodes in the sixth and final series of The Avengers starring Linda Thorson as Tara King, but until now the tapes containing these classic recordings have been lost. Silva Screen are pleased to announce that they will be releasing these recently discovered masters on a two CD set exclusively through their website from Friday the 24th of June. The package includes a 16 page booklet with full colour stills and extensive notes on the music and episodes from the TV programme. The CD will be available on august 8 from Amazon UK, also as download.
