'THE SWEENEY' Library Music Cues: "Collect the Set!"
« on: April 07, 2020, 04:07:43 PM »
I'm half way through this endeavour, with the music from the first two series already posted up:
https://retroteque.wordpress.com/category/the-sweeney/

So far it is 147 tracks across five volumes
Even if you don't like 'The Sweeney', a 1975-1978 UK cop show if you didn't know the five individual posts all include snapshots of the LPs for a retro contextual vibe.  I have to day I really enjoyed pulling them off the shelves and holding them again- some after many years of being unloved, neglected since their FLAC-friends distracted me with their shiny modern ways.
This show heavily used UK libraries; initially very KPM and De Wolfe heavy with smatterings of Chappell and Themes with a splosh of Selected Sound and what-not.
The latter episodes (not got to those yet) bought lots of Bruton in to the mix.... *dusts off Drama Montage*...
Anyway- get your trousers and yer headphones on!

BTW one track is a fake FLAC, converted from a 320 mp3.  It just makes it look better and most people wonít care about one track.

Oh, I see.
It's Disques Magellan 526054 and also Sylvester 538.
Unfortunately I have both of them in mp3 only.
Let's hope someone can help to complete your project.

My patchworks are.. patchy.  :)

This is making me feel like going out to buy some tights and a parka. What a superb collection so far Retronic - thank you (you slag).

Congratulations for this awesome compilations.

I grew up with the Avengers, the Champions, the Saint, the Prisoner of course, and many more, but never had the chance to see the Sweeney tv series at the time, never broadcasted in France.
I managed to download it on a torrent site, but never found subtitles (even english ones).
The characters have such terrific accents that it's very hard to follow.

But i stay with the music, wonderful journey into british library music.

Thanks, Retronic
