Customer Reviews

This is a great CD to have if you love bluegrass music.
Lynn Peterson
Simply put, this is one of the best - if not THE best - TV show-inspired albums ever made.
Kevin Cook
There are also some good songs and theme music from the show.

This album, the long-awaited reissue of the highly collectible 1961 vinyl original, should be required listening for every egomaniacal TV star who suddenly decides to add "recording star" to his resume. Simply put, this is one of the best - if not THE best - TV show-inspired albums ever made. The album brilliantly underscores the importance of music to the success of "The Andy Griffith Show." After all, the show had perhaps television's all-time catchiest theme (included here in all its carefree glory) and embraced an amazing variety of musical genres.
Andy belts out four folk chestnuts heard on the show ("The New River Train," "Cindy," "Flop Eared Mule" and "Sourwood Mountain"), backed up by the Country Boys, a wonderful bluegrass band who made two brief appearances on the show (before The Dillards made their indelible mark as the Darlings). Ange also sings "The Fishin' Hole" (with words by Everett Sloane, ornery Jubal Foster from "The Keeper of the Flame" episode) in the happy-go-luckiest way imaginable!
Best of all are the extended versions of composer-conductor Earle Hagen's character themes and incidental music, masterful compositions that enriched the program immeasurably. They are just as enjoyable, and more fully appreciated, outside the show's context. "Ellie's Theme" is sprightly and playful, in contrast to "Aunt Bee," which is much more wistful and melancholy than the program version, but both are beautiful. The urgent martial beat of "Manhunt" (unmistakably, Barney's theme) makes you want to take that bullet out of your pocket and go looking for jaywalkers. "Mayberry March" (later the theme to "Mayberry R.F.D.") gets the full John Philip Sousa treatment.

THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW: THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW was quite possibly the best written and acted sitcom to ever mosey onto the airwaves (who wouldn't wanna live in a town just like Mayberry?), and homespun music was as integral a part of its success as its gentle backwoods humor and eclectic characters. From the jazzy, jauntily whistled theme song (also available here with lyrics warbled by Andy as THE FISHIN' HOLE) to Griffith's good timey renditions of humor-laced bluegrass traditionals such as SOURWOOD MOUNTAIN, FLOP EARED MULE, and CINDY, this album is an audio photograph of a simpler, more carefree time when a neighbor was also a friend, and a man's word still meant something. Thrown in for extra good measure is Griffith's own unique spin on fairy tale JACK, THE GIANT KILLER and familiar incidental instrumentals from the series bearing titles like BARNEY'S HOEDOWN, THE MAN HUNT and MAYBERRY MARCH. This here's the next best thing to watchin' ANDY GRIFFITH reruns for the one hundredth time.

RATING: FIVE FISH ON THE LINE

My father bought this album when I was a child, and I remember listening to it often. Our family especially loved the story about Jack the Giant Killer. There is a variety of material on the album, including some bluegrass tunes and instrumental themes for different characters from the show. If you watch(ed) the show a lot, you would probably enjoy the CD.

The melodies on this CD will strike heartstrings in those who loved this very sweet, timeless show. If you love the show, and have watched it a lot, you will find moments of melodic bliss on this CD. Themes and frequently heard background melodies are here to send you back to that simpler time. No...it's not profound. It's just simple and sweet like the show. That's an automatic winner for any lover of the show, its wonderful characters, its stories, and that little stop on the way to Heaven we call Mayberry.

I had this album when I was a child and the thing I remembered most was Andy telling the story "Jack the Giant Killer." When I saw this was available on CD, I knew I had to have it. There are also some good songs and theme music from the show. I've really enjoyed listening to it again. It sounds as good now as when I was a child.

I absolutely love this CD, being a life-long fan of the series. The incidental music included here, "Ellie's Theme", "The Man Hunt", "Mayberry March", and the tear-inducing "Aunt Bee" all bring back fond memories of this classic 60's series, maybe the best TV show of all time. My only complaint about the album is the sequencing, which I assume is the original sequencing. For instance, track #2 is the 8 and a half minute comedy monologue by Andy called "Jack, The Giant Killer", which would work better, IMO, near the end of the CD. I have resequenced my CD-R copy of this disc with the first 6 tracks being: 1. The Andy Griffith Show 2. Ellie's Theme 3. The Man Hunt 4. Flop Eared Mule 5. Mayberry March 6. Aunt Bee. These tracks are the very best on the CD and best represent the mood of the show. At any rate, at the low price Amazon has this CD here, you must have this in your collection if you're a fan of Andy & the show.

This album is great for any Andy fan. Brings back memories and has some wonderful instrumental selections I missed as a kid watching the TV show. All will enjoy this from the storytelling to the bluegrass and old-time music.
