The Avengers and other Top 60's T.V. Themes

Fun set with 60(!) themes from hit U.S. & U.K. TV shows of the '60s, all digitally remastered. A must for fansof lounge music, it includes numerous spy, detective & sci- fi themes, including 'The Avengers' (fans of the 1998 film starring Uma Thurman, Sean Connery & Ralph Fiennes need look no further for the original theme), 'Dr. Who', 'The Saint', 'The Fugitive', 'Perry Mason', 'Out Of This World', 'Peyton Place' & 'Thunderbirds'. The themes to the British shows are the original versions. Some of the others are rerecorded for this set. Purists might scoff, but, there is no other source for some the obscure British spy show themes. Extremely loungerific in most excellent quality recordings.

I like the look of this collection a lot and would be very interested to give it a listen. Unfortunately, the links you have provided are no longer working. Do you think you could re-upload these recordings and provide some new links to access them, please? It would be much appreciated, if you would.
Many thanks,
