Some people would. But probably not enough to warrant the cost of producing such an album. They would'nt get enough money back. That's the main problem regarding the music from the series i think. We may get a CD from this up and coming Himalaya series though, as there will be plenty of material in that part of the world for a great soundtrack. I love Asian music,and have many Cd's of traditional and contemporary from travels in places like China,India,Nepal,Pakistan,etc. It's a rich source of fantastic music and so much variety is there. So keep your fingers crossed. As for earlier material such as from 80 days. I dont think we'll ever get it. Some of it has too cheap a sound to it,to be considered for commercial release.

I'd buy it - world music is cool. Eastern music is my favourite, lots of Aeolian and Lochrian usage. =D

>what other music was featured then!!

There is a lot of underscore in the series. Particulary in 80 days,where there are many variations on the main march we all love,depending on his location at the time. For example. On the long rail trip through the states,they twist it into a kind of laidback hillbilly style. I've always been amazed how versatile that was,and how it could be slowed down,speeded up,to create a particular mood. The composer was clever. There are several moments through 80days like that. Even at the start of one episode,the composer uses a tiny segment from Dvorak's New World Symphony as they were leaving on a ship in the early morning. I had'nt noticed it before, but when i did it was quite striking.

I cant remember much of Pole-Pole or Full Circle's music because it's been quite some time since i've seen them. But Sahara had a very minimalistic underscore. Closer to new age music. So it's less noticeable really. Full Circle had quite a lot of music,and the Andean music stands out.

It was "Good Morning, Pillow". It an old 'cry in yer beer' song about a guy waking up from being drunk with no woman with him, only memories.
