I only ever loved the 1st Season of the show when it was on NBC, with its loads of Airwolf undertones; however the success of the show were the later 9 seasons on CBS. Intrada have released the official soundtrack now.

Composed and Conducted by BRUCE BROUGHTON and STEVE BRAMSON

INTRADA MAF 7107

This was a story about big things ships, jet fighters, war. And of course the story centered on a contemporary military hero, Lt. Harmon Harm Rabb of the Judge Advocate General Corps. It obviously needed a score with a theme that was big, heroic and military. -- Bruce Broughton

The CBS Paramount television series JAG featured an unconventional blend of legal drama and high adventure in a realistic military setting, A key ingredient of the shows success was its music, which celebrated the values identified by creator Don Bellisario: honor, commitment and dedication. To set the tone, the producer called on composer Bruce Broughton to score the series two-part pilot. The pilot introduces its series lead, Harm, in the context of a military investigation into the possible murder of a woman aboard an aircraft carrier. As he and his partner outmaneuver the killer, we get his back story in flashback and the proceedings are spiced up by the inclusion of several exciting fighter jet sequences. Broughton takes full advantage of the sweeping canvas, crafting a thrilling score charged with energy and suspense. It is on this pilot that Broughton introduced his theme to JAG. The theme begins with ruffles and flourishes of a sort, starting with drums, trumpets and horns. The melody itself is stirring -- big, powerful and proud. It became the centerpiece of the score, both of the pilot and of all of the episodes to follow

For the series proper, Broughton passed the baton to Steve Bramson, a versatile composer with whom he had worked on Steven Spielbergs Tiny Toon Adventures. Bramson proved himself more than worthy of the charge, continuing the tradition of musical excellence over more than two hundred episodes. To represent Bramson's work on the series, Intrada has chosen to represent the episode Cowboys and Cossacks, the story of a Russian submarine captain bent on vengeance against an old American rival. Bramson took a departure from the familiar JAG sound used in earlier episodes and invoked the style of the great Russian nationalist composers. As a result, the music mirrors the contrast expressed in the episodes title. Low brass, especially trombones, are featured for the Russians, while solo trumpet remains the signature sound for the JAGs.

I'll be buying this soon as I can afford it, but definitely a bad move on Intrada's part to concentrate on just 2 episodes. You say you like the 1st Season the most, Mark, but I found the following seasons to be so much more entertaining, as far as Season 7, when it fell down hill, with the odd exception here and there, until Season 9, when it went really bad.

My first season of the show was the 4th, and that, with the 3rd, 5th and 6th, are the true great JAG years.
