"This Is Cult Fiction Royale" is one of the finest collections of television themes ( and in particular spy jazz themes ) that you are ever likely to hear. Some of the biggest names in the biz are featured, with Barry Gray getting plenty of exposure with classics such as "Theme From Thunderbirds", "Theme From Captain Scarlet" and "Theme From Supercar" all featuring here. Perennial compilation inclusions such as "Theme From Mission Impossible", "Theme From The Man From U.N.C.L.E" and "007" are presented in all their glory along with funky numbers like "Theme From The Professionals" and "Theme From Danger Man". The final three tracks seem like they were added as an afterthought and, as good as they are, they don't fit the overall vibe of the record. All the same I can't recommend this collection highly enough, it's awesome. Disk 1 will be posted tomorrow.

More crime/spy jazz is never a bad thing.
