TV 029: Danger Man (Danger Man Theme) - The Red Price Combo

Danger Man was a stunningly good secret agent series that originally hit our screens in 1960. John Drake was played by Patrick MacGoohan, and undertook several missions on behalf of NATO taking him to various far-flung locations.

The first series comprised 39 episodes and ran until January 1962. Each episode was 25 minutes in duration.

The original theme was composed by Edwin Astley and this cover version was recorded by The Red Price Combo in 1961. It perfectly encapsulates the subject matter and is one of the era's most memorable themes.

Comments and feedback are welcome.
