Music a gogo : The "New" New Avengers Theme

Classic Jazzy cover by UK dj-producer-percussionist and band leader Snowboy from around 1996.
"I was always pleased with my version of this classic T.V. series. I went through every episode (when I was on a tour bus) and recorded every little bit of incidental music and strung it all together for the middle section."

It's Raining Hard Outside - Yanka Rupkina

She is the most popular singer in Bulgaria.
She was the musical leader of:
"The Mysterious Voices of Bulgaria."
I don't know who she's singing with here,
but sounds a bit like Tom Waits,
and know it isn't.
