This album is a great example that we had great TV SERIES with great music scores produced in the USA -not only in UK.
Jazz music,lounge music,even classic music mixed in a brilliant way in this O.S.T.
In this cd you can hear the original and the best by far,famous version of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE theme.
It is a cd that you will hear from beggining to end,again and again.With how many albums that are produced these days can you do the same?A very few i pressume.
No wonder: The 5/4 idea in what is actually a 12-bar blues is indicative of what made Schifrrin a master jazz composer: taking the familiar and standing it on its ear--making it totally unique with an abstract concept.
It occured to me while hearing this album again that the show Mission Impossible ran from 1966-1973. Beatles, Hendrix, Progressive rock-this was THE time for music: rock was changing the world and pop music, in the biggest use of the term, was evolving breakneck.
You can hear a lot of this on this score. Electric flutes, electric keybords, all those inventions quickly being brought into rock were flooding into all of music, via rock. There is tons of invention on this music. If the TV show had began in 1963, the scores would have been entirely different.
There are some dead spots here, ballads and more convential music. You don't get the beginning to end attack you do on Bullitt or Dirty Harry.
But when this music is on, man, is it on.

Was very disappointed. The only music from the TV series was the opening theme. Nothing other than that. Read morePublished on March 23, 2011 by Julie A Weston
I had the original album and have had this CD for several years. I still enjoy the music that Lalo has done, especially for Mission Impossible. Enjoy!Published on December 25, 2010 by Dufus

Since I received my cd, I have listened to it quite often. I like it even more than the soundtracks to the more recent "Mission Impossible" films! It really swings!Published on March 11, 2007 by Tamara N. Miller
