In Case You Missed It: “Hawaii Five-O” Soundtrack Reissued

leave a comment »

Summer may be over, but there’s at least one more wave to catch if you’re a catalogue enthusiast. Film Score Monthly has recently reissued the original LP of music from the television series Hawaii Five-O.

Broadcast from 1968 to 1980, Hawaii Five-O was a captivating crime drama involving a fictitious state police unit that busted criminals all over the islands of the 50th state. One of the many highlights of the show – a highlight that’s been replicated on the new revival of the show from CBS – was the propulsive title theme written by composer Morton Stevens. It quickly became one of the most iconic television songs in history, and became one of a handful of vintage shows to get its own soundtrack. It’s this 12-track, half-hour album that’s being reissued by FSM, digitally remastered with new liner notes by Jon Burlingame featuring insights from Stevens.

This set is both unlimited and presented at a low price of $12.95, a one-two punch that Danno would have no trouble in booking. Check the specs after the jump.
