The Bionic Woman - Episodic Collection Vol. 1 - Kill Oscar Parts 1 & 3
This is the first (posthumous) CD release from JoeHarnell.com to exclusively feature Bionic Woman music. (The 2002 compilation CD, The Film Music of Joe Harnell featured select Bionic Woman suites but also included music from other Harnell shows like, The Incredible Hulk, V, and Alien Nation.) This 2008 release features the complete soundtracks from Kill Oscar, Parts 1 and 3 (Part 2 was a Six Million Dollar Man episode and was not scored by Harnell). The disc also includes the composer's unused alternate Main Title and bonus tracks.
Here's the official Press Release from JoeHarnell.com:
"JoeHarnell.com presents the original television soundtrack recording to THE BIONIC WOMAN: KILL OSCAR PARTS 1 and 3 in loving memory of the great Joe Harnell. While the second part of KILL OSCAR contained music composed by J.J Johnson, this release only contains music composed and conducted by Joe Harnell for the first and third parts. This release includes the complete scores to both episodes, including an alternate Main Title theme that ended up not being used in the series. In addition, original musical sound effects he produced for these episodes are also included. THE BIONIC WOMAN: KILL OSCAR PARTS 1 and 3 is an exclusive joeharnell.com release, professionally mastered, factory manufactured and limited to 1000 units.
"JoeHarnell.com presents THE BIONIC WOMAN: KILL OSCAR PARTS 1 and 3, featuring music composed and conducted by Joe Harnell for the 1970's cult television show, THE BIONIC WOMAN, created and developed by Kenneth Johnson (THE BIONIC MAN, THE INCREDIBLE HULK, V) and starring Lindsay Wagner, Richard Anderson, Martin E. Brooks, Ford Rainey, Martha Scott and Jennifer Darling.
"Produced during the second season of THE BIONIC WOMAN, KILL OSCAR was an epic three-part story that began in THE BIONIC WOMAN, crossed over to THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN and concluded on THE BIONIC WOMAN, which was very rare for genre shows produced at that time. Long considered a favorite story by fans of the show, KILL OSCAR finds Jaime Sommers fighting evil female robots called Fembots who are part of an evil scheme by Dr. Franklin to kidnap OSI Chief Oscar Goldman and obtain an experimental weather control device. The great John Houseman guest-starred in the three-part story as the nefarious Dr. Franklin. At the end of the first part, Jaime lay near death and the story crossed over to THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN, where the duty fell to Steve Austin (Lee Majors) to join the struggle against Dr. Franklin and his Fembots. And in the third and final part of KILL OSCAR, Jaime joins forces with Steve Austin to capture Dr. Franklin on his island while his weather machine cooks up a fierce tropical storm around them." -- JoeHarnell.com
