The Man From U.N.C.L.E. - Hugo Montenegro
Arranged And Conducted By Hugo Montenegro
RCA Victor LSP-3475
This is another outstanding space age recording from one of my favorite arrangers, Hugo Montenegro. Montenegro understood the sound that made the 60s campy, fun and cool. Solo On A Raft is a particularly haunting track found on side one.
Ironically, Montenegro never worked on the series. Jerry Goldsmith, Walter Scharf, Lalo Schifrin, Gerald Fried, Robert Drasnin, Nelson Riddle and Richard Shores did the actual work on the series which lasted for three seasons.
The album is available on CD so I will not be posting a sample.
