3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I hoped for June 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Listeners should beware that these are not all the originals from the TV shows, most notably the Park Avenue Beat, Hill Street Blues theme, Green Acres and Petticoat Junction. However, Syncopated Clock, Bandstand Boogie and I Love Lucy are the real deal and enjoyable. Most disappointing was Park Avenue Beat (them from Perry Mason Show). I would love to find the original, driving, brassy theme but cannot locate it anywhere on this site or elsewhere. Any suggestions?

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing Pieces...But Still Fun November 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
You all but expected these selections on an album like this. But you cannot help wondering why some of the truly majestic television themes didn't make the cut - I mean, do you really prefer "The Ballad of Jed Clampett" over "Theme From Naked City" (the Nelson Riddle Orchestra version, please, with that exquisitely urbane and lonely saxophone and the fiery finale), "Petticoat Junction" over "Route 66" (Riddle again), or "Flight of the Bumblebee (The Green Hornet)" (come on, even the jaded have to love Al Hirt's jaw-dropping trumpet shredding)?
On the other hand, this isn't exactly meant to be a collection of serious music, either, and you have to love a set which includes THE version of Leroy Anderson's charming "Syncopated Clock" (you know it better as the longtime signature theme for New York CBS's "The Early Show" and "The Late Show" television movies, right?), by Percy Faith and His Orchestra, as opposed to the insulting synthesiser rendition which made the cut for the legendary "Television's Greatest Hits" series of albums. This "Syncopated Clock" alone make the set worth the price. Not that you can't have fun with the others regardless, even those infernal hayseed themes...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the originals January 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Most of these seem to be done in the same time period and even by the original artist, but don't seem to be the versions played in the shows. For example, Eddie Albert sings "Green Acres", but Eva Gabor is missing completely. The "Bob Crane" pieces barely sound like the originals. I would like to see a compilation of the originals as we knew and loved them.

Only about half of the songs are what you'd expect if you liked the TV series. Bandstand Boogie, The Synchopated Clock, The Ballad of Paladin, The Rebel, Rawhide. I Love Lucy is the original theme with lyrics, and Blue Star was apparently the theme from The Medic, a series from the mid-1950s. The Ballad of Davy Crockett is good; Strother Martin is uncredited with Parker and Ebsen. The rest of the tunes are alternate renditions and I would consider mediocre or poor copies. I had no idea Bob Crane was involved in music, but these were a disappointment. The included version of The Virginian I would expect to hear in a cheesy nightclub. Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs are talented, but these are covers, not the originals.
