Great Collection, But Not-so Good Quality.

  • May 6, 2004
TELEVISION'S GREATEST HITS VOLUME 1 includes 65 theme songs from various television shows that first aired in the 1950s and 1960s. The cd is divided into four sections: Early Morning Cartoons, Afternoon Adventure, Mid-Morning Sitcoms, and Prime Time Drama. 65 themes might seem like a lot, but there are a lot of tunes that people are familiar with that aren't on this album. And there are a couple of tunes (Fireball XL-5, for instance) that some people probably have never heard about. I really enjoy this cd. We used to play one or two themes from it on the children's radio show I used to produce and I've used it on the webradio show I worked on occasionally. Some of the tracks from some of the older shows sound like they were taped off a record player--for me this isn't really a problem and appealed more to my sense of nostalgia. However, the one major flaw I did have about this album is that about 1/4th to 1/3rd of all the songs aren't the original songs at all, but re-recordings taped in such a way to sound like the originals: the biggest glaring example of this is #15, "The Beverly Hillbillies"--the songs all there, but it's not the original. Besides that, though, TELEVISION'S GREATEST HITS is a great cd to own for anyone who likes tv theme songs, especially from the classic days of tv.
