5.0 out of 5 stars TUNE IN to GREAT TUNES! April 16, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Three cheers for EMI for finally putting these two albums out on CD for all to enjoy. Nelson Riddle's TV Theme versions were really hot when they were released on vinyl. Since then, an ocassional song has been released here and there, but here are both albums complete in pristine sound as well. This CD is worth its weight in gold for the rip-roarin' version Nelson and the gang lays down of The DICK VAN DYKE Theme, if for no other reason. There are of course about 20 other reasons including the themes from THE ALVIN SHOW, the LUCY Show, and THE BALLAD OF JED CLAMPETT. TV fans of all ages will delight in and enjoy this long overdue collection of some of TV's greatest theme songs, done by one of Hollywood's most fantastic arrangers.
Hope to see more of Nelson's albums represented in this fashion by the good people at EMI. Very nice packaging including all original liner notes as well. Great CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic big band arrangements June 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Embodies all the excitement of the 60's TV shows. Nelson Riddle and his band of top musicians can still can stand along side todays TV and movie music creators with colour and richness of sound that is often assisted by digital enhancement today.
Top marks for releasing both LP albums on a single CD, my original 33rpm records can now be put into retirement.

Though only four of these are Nelson originals ("Route 66 Theme" "The Untouchables" "Theme From Sam Benedict" and "New Naked City Theme"), the maestro puts his stamp on every track through his inventive, signature arrangements. Highlights include swinging charts for "The Alvin Show" and "The Dick Van Dyke Show," Latin beats for "My Three Sons" and "The Lucy Show," the Bert Kaempfert styled "The Defenders Theme," and a fine light-jazz take on "Supercar." Two great albums, brought together on one extraordinary CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music and Arrangements September 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I listen to alot of different styles and types of music. I have a pretty large music library. This collection is one of my top 3 favorites. The Nelson Riddles don't come along very often. Due to their time frame most all of these tracks are only a little over two minutes in length. Every time I listen Nelson leaves me begging for more of each track.Even if you don't think that you will like this collection,take my word for it. YOU WILL......Lightfoot

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice but NOT the original October 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This collection of TV Themes songs is composed of rather well done versions done by this band and composer. They are NOT the versions you heard when you saw the show, however.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best TV theme Albums Ever! May 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of TV theme recordings since the original shows I watched as a teen in the 50s and early 60s. I've collected TV theme albums from the 50s and 60s on vinyl and on CD. Nelson Riddle was/is one of the all time great arranger/conductors and the 2 LPs which make up this CD are two of his very best. Nelson's arrangements make even the simplest TV theme melodies interesting and here you have everything from Mitch Miller's "Sing Along" to the "Alvin Theme":24 of the most memorable TV themes from what is now called 'Television's Golden Age'.

There really is no riddle involved here. Just get the real thing: Nelson Riddle!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best TV theme albums ever! July 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This 2002 EMI two-fer CD, containing two albums recorded by Nelson Riddle in 1962, ROUTE 66 AND OTHER GREAT TV THEMES and its sequel, MORE HIT TV THEMES, is one of the finest TV theme music collections available. Riddle applies his own style on all 24 tracks, from the obscure ("Supercar," which was a kiddie show from the early '60s that I did not remember) to his hit recordings of "The Untouchables," the "Route 66 Theme" itself, and the "old" and "new" versions of "Naked City" (the first written by Nelson's good friend Billy May, the second by Riddle himself). Only Henry Mancini's PETER GUNN albums come close.

5.0 out of 5 stars NELSON RIDDLE September 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST COMBINATIONS OF MUSIC FROM ONE OF THE GREATEST COMPOSERS OF TELEVSION THEMES TODAY.
NELSON RIDDLE HAS BEEN ONE OF MY PERSONAL FAVORITES FOR YEARS, AND WITH THIS WONDERFUL ALBUM YOU CAN HEAR FIRST HAND WHY.
IT CONTAINS MANY OLD T.V. FAVORITES THAT WE OF THE GOLDEN AGE OF T.V. GREW UP WITH, AND NOW HAVE A CHANCE TO ENJOY OVER AGAIN.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ALBUM FOR THE SHEER ENJOYMENT OF NELSON RIDDLE'S WONDERFUL SCORES OF MANY GREAT T.V. SHOWS FROM YESTERYEAR.

This CD sucks! The sound quality is lousy, and most of the songs are just lame renditions of old TV theme songs.
