A stunning soundtrack piece, 'the shark' opens with a catchy bass riff. Montenegro then uses an Ennio Morricone-style instrumentation with harpsichord and strings to build the theme. The tempo changes unsettlingly as the theme continues through an incredibly atmospheric three minutes.

I can't believe how great this is! Really part of Hugo's best period, when he was using some of his best players, and best ideas! The track starts out with this plunky Carol Kaye like bass line, alongside funky harpsichord, and the vocal begins in his typical "choral" style. Really faithful to the turtles original, with all the twists and turns of his crazy arrangements. Check out the vocal effect on the chorus, where he runs the tracks through a Leslie speaker! Crazy stuff.

This theme is taken from the 1960s hit TV-series 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' starring Robert Vaughn and David McCallum. Although I don't recall ever hearing this version of the theme I know I've heard variations of it in the series. I particually remember a vibraphones only theme that was played in a store in one of the episodes from the first season.
This version is a laidback bossa song with trumpets, trombones, organs and vibraphones. I'm not sure if this theme was especially written for Vaughn's characher Napoleon Solo, but I guess you could call it his theme since it was often played during his scenes. This is a great song!
