Silva Screen Records, which specializes in film and TV music, has issued a remastered version of Fear Is the Key, the jazzy soundtrack composed by Roy Budd for the 1972 film adaptation of Alistair MacLean's novel. The film starred Barry Newman (aka TV lawyer Petrocelli) as a man who plots revenge after his family is killed. It features a famous car chase (which can be viewed here).
