Get Smart (1965 - 1970 Television Series) Soundtrack
Top Customer Reviews
Minus two stars for using that inferior cover of the Irving Szathmary penned theme.
*It must be noted that the original theme does exist on the album but is not a complete version as there is dialogue over most of it.
It turns out that this is a compilation of dialogue excerpts from the TV series. The comedy of "Get Smart" doesn't work very well without the visuals.
This album was originally released on vinyl in the 1960's, and buying it back then would have made more sense because home video did not yet exist in any format. Today, however, you can buy the entire series on DVD, so why would you want an audio CD containing just a few excerpts?
If there is ever a release of the scoring music from "Get Smart", I would consider that a much more worthwhile purchase. Listening to various movie soundtrack albums has helped me appreciate the great talent and hard work that often goes into TV and movie music scoring; which most of us don't notice on a conscious level when we're watching a movie or TV show.
