Music from Mission Impossible is an album featuring music composed and conducted by Lalo Schifrin recorded in 1967 and released on the Dot label.[1] The music on this album is rerecorded and extended scores that were originally commissioned for the TV series Mission: Impossible.

Reception[edit]

Schifrin was awarded two Grammys at the 10th Grammy Awards for his work on the first series (Best Instrumental Theme and Best Original Score for a Motion Picture or TV Show).[2]

The album peaked at 47 on the Billboard Albums Chart and 11 on the magazine's jazz chart in 1968.[3]

The Allmusic review states: "Any fan of the show should try and find this album at a used music shop, but more specifically fans of Lalo Schifrin (and that could be quite a few, as he remained uncredited on some of his TV themes) should definitely check the album out. It's a good buy if you can find it".[4]
