Editorial Reviews

Just say U.N.C.L.E., soundtrack fans, for not only are we presenting the first-ever CD dedicated to Dave Grusin's classic music to The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. ! The CD also includes Jerry Goldsmith's beloved theme to The Man from U.N.C.L.E. '60s kitsch never sounded-or looked-so good!

5.0 out of 5 stars dreamy cool spy tunes . . . January 2, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. featured Stefanie Powers as agent April Dancer, Noel Harrison as Mark Slate, and Leo G. Carroll as U.N.C.L.E. chief Alexander Waverly. The spinoff from the smash hit, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., ran for one season (1966-67).

As he did on The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (The Original Soundtrack Affair), composer Hugo Montenegro reworks music from the program's original score and other sources, turning themes or suites into shorter more listenable tunes, typically tighter, more upbeat, and alive. Adding his touches to the works of composers Dave Grusin, Teddy Randazzo and Richard Shore, Montenegro's arrangements for The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. are easy on the ears, and have a cool airy vibe.

A chorus is often used to spice things up, sometimes being an uplifting element, other times helping create a dreamy softness. In `Out of the Frying Pan' the chorus works with the horns and percussion to drive the tune forward, while the version here of the `Theme From The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' is quite dreamy. The harpsichord, an instrument often used by U.N.C.L.E.'s composers, is also employed by Montenegro to add a flavor, as on `Mother Muffin' which also features more of the uplifting chorus. `Sneaky Search' is the most up tempo, action oriented piece, with a smoking hot horn solo, and a rousing finish, it is definitely one of the high points. `Follow the T.H.R.U.S.H'., `Bomb Scare' and `Somewhere in Greece' are also upbeat numbers, featuring more strong horn work. Hip, sophisticated, and romantic, the wonderful `Theme From the Girl From U.N.C.L.E.' was sampled for a national commercial.

The album is short and sweet, running a little over 28 minutes of dreamy cool spy tunes.

3.0 out of 5 stars A great momento from the mid-1960s March 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The music on this album sounds very little like it did on the actual TV show. The fantastic original music cues by the likes of Jerry Goldsmith, Dave Grusin and Richard Shores are "re-imagined"(God, I hate that word) by the late New York jazz artist Teddy Randazzo. I was a little kid when this disc first appeared and I remember being ultra-disappointed when I finally slapped it on my turn-table. Like the Hugo Montenegro MAN FROM UNCLE albums before it, the tracks sounded very little like they did on the TV program. But, damn it, it's all we had at the time. Thankfully, decades later, FILM SCORE MONTHLY finally put out the original tracks as heard on the show(on their MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. Vol. 3 2-disc set).

Now, in retrospect, this album really sums up the "Big Apple" jazz sound that prevailed in the swinging '60s. And that cover with Stephanie Powers is really a stand-out pictorially. If you're a fan of the show, it's worth a spin.

5.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked little classic! February 9, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
From my first spin of the vinyl version of this album (found in a Woolworth's 44-cent bargain bin some forty years ago), I considered The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. to be one of the most instantly enjoyable and downright fun of the Old School spy/detective soundtrack genre. A little jazzy, a little easy listening, every cut should bring a smile for those who appreciate 60s nostalgia.

Just for starters, there is the familiar brassy theme from The Man From U.N.C.L.E., but then the rest of the tracks belong to our mini-dressed plucky heroine.

For sneaking around corners and peeking through windows, there is the sly camp of "Shall We Gather At The Boat Dock," and "Mother Muffin." For those climactic chases through dark Third World alleys and bustling urban streetscapes, there are the tense frenzies of, "Sneaky Search," "Somewhere In Greece," "Movin' On," "Out Of The Frying Pan," "Bomb Scare," and "Follow the THRUSH." And then, for a few silken cocktail hour breezes that could get you feeling a little tipsy on a Shirley Temple, there are, "The Countess," "April," and "The Girl From U.N.C.L.E."

Doubtful they realized it back in '66, but Goldsmith, Grusin, Randazzo and Shores crafted a too-brief little masterpiece of the spy music genre; today it strikes the ear as an ultra-cool trip back to those happily innocent Cold War movie and TV days when the world's most sinister Bad Guys could be foiled by hot American babes whose frosted white lipstick tubes doubled as radio transmitters.
