I see from the above details on Jaz Wiseman that he is working a Silvascreen release of Blake's season 6 scores.

This is fantastic news. I've got the promotional CD but it will be brilliant to have a proper well produced soundtrack.

Blake had been a keyboard player on Laurie Johnson's scores. His first score was for My Wildest Dream. He then followed it with music for:

My Wildest Dream
Whoever Shot Poor George Oblique Stroke XR40?
All Done with Mirrors
Super Secret Cypher Snatch
Game
Noon Doomsday
Wish You Were Here
The Interrogators
Take Me To Your Leader
Who Was That Man I Saw You With?

I know from the previous CD that there was more to his Noon Doomsday that was unused, I hope there are more surprises.

Thats fantastic news!

I've always loved the scores for those episodes and always thought how well Blake perked up the series musically, the mash up of previous music by Laurie Johnson on other episodes from this series did tend to get a bit tiresome after a while - although I have to say I find his music fabulous as well!

Can't wait to see whats produced!

Hoorah! More incidental scores we can get released for these shows the better, and with Jaz at the helm you know it'll be a brilliant end product!

All the best

Count me in!

* CAT NO: SILCD1363 / SILED1363
* UK Release Date: 8th August 2011

On 8th August Silva Screen Records will release The Avengers, a 2 CD set featuring Howard Blake’s classic music for The Avengers final TV series.

The double album includes an attractive 16 page booklet with full colour stills and extensive notes on music and episodes from the TV programme.

Alongside Johnny Dankworth and Laurie Johnson, Howard Blake is the third, none-the-less important, but often forgotten, contributor to The Avengers TV series music. Dankworth’s laid-back jazzy theme was the signature tune of the first three series, while Johnson penned the flamboyant rousing up-tempo theme to the three series shot on 35mm film.

Brought into the job late in the series in 1967 by Laurie Johnson, and on the recommendation of Bernard Herrmann, Howard Blake scored ten episodes in the sixth and final series starring Linda Thorson as Tara King alongside the stalwart Macnee. From big-band sound with modern jazz inflections and spooky trombone choir, flutes and vibraphones, to bass clarinets, solo piano, timpanis, amplified harpsichord, 'wah-wah' guitar and Fender-Rhodes electric piano, Blake created a rich and relevant score that remains a classic to this day.

* The Avengers 2 CD set will be available to buy at the end of June exclusively through the Silva Screen Records website.

Tracklisting to be announced soon.
