I'm obviously way too young and un-American to have seen this series in its initial run, but Norwegian TV2 used to air it right after they started broadcasting in the early 90s. I think it was mostly night-time television, but I tuned in once a while - if only because of the Michael Douglas connection.

I can't really recall any music (outside the theme), but many of these shows have some funky crime jazz. Will probably be checking out the samples.

QUINN MARTIN PRODUCTIONS VOL III
THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO TV SERIES- Music by PATRICK WILLIAMS + A MAN CALLED SLOAN 1979

LA LA LAND RECORDS - TAKE MY MONEY NOW!!



WOW! And a Man Called Sloane (1979 Robert Conrad, James Bond-ish spy series). I gotta get this. Only lasted 12 episodes, but I watched it. The episode I most remember was the one with Richard Lynch as a master-of-disguise. Notable villians/guest-stars for the series include: Robert Culp, Eric Braeden, Monte Markham, Mako, Richard Lynch, Roddy McDowall, Clive Revill, Sybil Danning, Morgan Fairchild, Vonette McGee, and Rita Wilson

Love the title theme but don't remember anything about the rest of the music, so I am looking forward to listening to the clips.

About 15 years ago, I was in bed with a back injury, and there happened to be a "Streets of San Francisco" marathon on TV. I remember thinking the music was amazing.

It's Patrick Williams.
It's a no-brainer.

Instant purchase! Grew up on this show as it was one of my grandma's favorites (along with Kojak, Rockford Files, Columbo and Cannon).

Liked, um, the detective work Malden was doing there as the lady in the skirt walked by. big grin Excellent theme. Malden really did the leg work for a middle aged man climbing that fence. (I'm sure it was edited in.)

Jeez, I didn't remember Douglas was in that. My how time flies!

First Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and now this. A great year for classic TV scoring! smile

Detective Lt. Mike Stone would be "canceled" today.

I think if word got around that he tried to persuade Marcia Brady to quit being a call girl and go to college (He didn't succeed). He'd be let off the hook in some circles.

I do hope if this Patrick Williams collection sells well LLL may consider an expanded set in the future (subject to availability of the material and the likes) featuring the music of John Elizalde - Richard Markowitz - Duane Tatro - Billy Byers - Tom Scott - John Carl Parker - Robert Prince to name but a few who scored many episodes throughout the series.

Considering they announced from the outset there'd only be three volumes, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Hopefully, they'll change their minds about stopping after Volume III. I really was hoping for a Dominic Frontiere collection with The Fugitive and 12 O'Clock High.

The Fugitive didn't have original scoring. It had a Pete Rugolo library. Dominic Frontiere wasn't involved with that. And 12 O'Clock High is under Disney's control (it was a QM/Fox production). So...

In addition to finally getting some of the funkiest TV music around with SoSF....

I can't believe I will own music from all 3 of Robert Conrad's spy series.

The crazy Wild Wild West....

the seemingly LeCarre influenced Assignment Vienna...

and the Roger Moore/Bond Sloane.

That's just weird!

Of course it doesn't hurt that the music was handled by masters like Grusin and Partick W. (and Shores and so on)

Most exciting!

The Fugitive did have original scoring by Pete Rugolo. He wrote a series of cues of various lengths, many including the theme in different textures and tempos.
They recorded in London and tracked the music into each episode. I knew Pete very well and we often discussed the series. I have a copy of the score for the main title in Pete's hand. A few woodwinds, 5 trumpets, 5 trombones,
strings, etc. Pete orchestrated everything. I was Pete's copyist on his final film "This World, Then The Fireworks". He was modest and a true gentleman in every sense of the world. I am still friends with his family.
