I was quite surprised (and pleased) to find this excellent Audio-CD available. All that great music from the 1963-1967 television drama series "The Fugitive" (starring David Janssen) is here. And it sounds great.

The original 1960s version of "The Fugitive" is one of the all-time greatest TV programs to ever show up on American television screens. And one of the major reasons for this praise, in my own personal opinion anyway, rests firmly on the shoulders of Mr. Pete Rugolo, who was responsible for composing the outstanding music that was heard throughout the show's four-year TV run (120 total episodes).

Offhand, I cannot think of a TV show which featured better music -- which would include the picture-perfect opening theme, as well as all the various assorted pieces of background musical cues and bridges that Mr. Rugolo wrote to adorn the interior of each of the episodes during the "Fuge" series. Rugolo's mood-enhancing melodies created for the show were (and still are today) miniature 'classics' unto themselves. I never tire of listening to the soundtrack of "The Fugitive". Truly great stuff.

This CD is divided into 24 tracks, with a total running time of 47:20. Extensive Liner Notes are included, in the form of an interesting eight-page booklet, which provides the backstory of the Peter Rugolo/Fugitive connection, as well as a few vintage "Fugitive" photographs.

Anybody who likes great TV soundtrack recordings should definitely make an attempt to acquire this Compact Disc.
