5.0 out of 5 stars A Long Awaited Masterpiece July 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Miami Vice: The Complete Collection is a powerful monument to composer Jan Hammer's groundbreaking soundtrack to one of television's most memorable series. With over two hours of music, the two compact discs feature 42 memorable cuts, including 22, which have never been released to the public before. Miami Vice redefined television and Jan Hammer's soundtrack completely redefined the way in which shows were scored. The result was a chart-topping commercial success never before seen from a television soundtrack and international acclaim for series and composer alike.
While there have been other Miami Vice albums in the past, fans have long hoped for this expanded collection and, in resounding fashion, Hammer does not fail to deliver. The old favorites, such as the original "Miami Vice Theme" and "Crockett's Theme", are all there but the real payoff is a complete disc, 22 tracks, of previously unreleased gems such as "The Talk", surely one of Hammer's finest compositions from his three and a half years scoring Miami Vice. The end result of it all is a totally wonderful musical experience.
Even after several listenings it continues to amaze me just how many memorable tracks there are and really, when you think about it, it is amazing that anyone could fill two CDs with great music from any television series. Hammer has the most incredible gift for mood and melody and his music stands tall even without the visual components it was written to accompany.

Whether you are a fan of Miami Vice, Jan Hammer, or even if you just enjoy great music, Miami Vice: The Complete Collection delivers the goods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for the "VICE" fan or 80's lover March 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
One of the most important parts of the "Miami Vice" legacy is Jan Hammer's score, beautifully capturing the feel of Miami in the mid-1980's. Some of the songs have been released on the three hit soundtracks from the show, but a complete collection of Hammer's music has never been released. Until now.
The CD begins with the unforgettable "Original Miami Vice Theme" as heard in the opening titles of the show. Then it goes on to the calm, relaxing "Crockett's Theme" frequently heard on the show (and later featured in the immediate classic video game GRAND THEFT AUTO: VICE CITY), followed by the "New York Theme" from the second season pilot episode (a.k.a. "Miami Vice II: The Prodigal Son"). There is then a bunch of themes from the episodes (including the fast-paced "Chase" and the beautiful "Marina"), until we near the end of the first CD with "Rico's Blues", "The Trial and the Search", and "Wedding". To close the CD, the single version of the "Miami Vice Theme" that became so extremely popular is used - basically an extended version of the "Original Miami Vice Theme".
The second CD is, in my opinion, a better CD than the first, containing songs not released until now. It opens with "Candy" (which brings two words to your mind, no matter when you hear it: "Miami Vice"), then moves on to "Voodoo Dance", a fun song. "Angelina Flashback" is a nice re-performance of the original "Flashback", while "Rain" has a very cool, casual feeling to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you don't want the uncertainty November 6, 2004
Format:Audio CD
...of the marketplace, since Amazon is sold out of this as I write, go to [...] and you'll have it in a week!

I've been a loyal Amazon customer for seven years but they let me down on this one. I spent two months waiting for Amazon marketplace when I could have had it right away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid ! January 4, 2003
By rkenter
Format:Audio CD
I have been listening to Jan Hammer since early 70's esp his work with the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Since then, he has collaborated with many top guitarists like Jeff Beck, Al Di Meola, Neal Schon etc. In 1984, Jan had a great opportunity to score for Miami Vice which he did with great style & flair to match the ever-popular TV series. Now, for the first time, the entire musical score has been brought out in a 2 CD format. Disc 2 is unreleased material mostly re-worked by Jan. The music stands out superbly. Jan's playing is unsurpassed. Definately if you are inspired by TV/FILM music or are a fan of Jan's music, pick this one up. You won't regret it !

5.0 out of 5 stars Miami Vice: The Complete Collection . . .Well, Almost! September 17, 2002
By Kevin
Format:Audio CD
Miami Vice: The Complete Collection . . .Well, Almost! If you are a child of the 80's, and/or simply a fan of Miami Vice, this is one CD you must add to your collection.
Jan Hammer's unique music score, which helped define the fast paced, high energy and completely fashionable series,Miami Vice, comes alive in this CD packed with over 40 pieces.
Listening to this collection will have you longing for those Friday nights of yesteryear on NBC at 10:00 . . .waiting to see Sonny Crockett take chase in his black Daytona Spider and awaiting the sound of Ricardo Tubb's shotgun in an altercation with drug dealers!
This CD is packed, not only with pieces from classic episodes such as "Payback", "Out Where the Busses Don't Run", "Home Invaders" and "No Exit",but is also accompanied with memories of the television show which helped define the 1980s.
The CD's only downfall is that it does not include several scores from episodes such as, and in particular, "Buddies" and "Little Miss Dangerous", as well as certain pieces heard in "Payback", "Calderone's Return: Part II" and "Golden Triangle". With any luck, and with constant requests, maybe Mr. Hammer will release these someday as well. ( We can only hope!!)
This CD is excellent! Trust me!
