4.0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent, but still great May 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Lots of fun, and I'm glad to have it, but can you really claim any artistic merit for the Roger Ramjet song?
Two other minor points: It's kind of silly to have The Wonderful World of Color on an album called Black and White Classics. Also, I was extremely disappointed in the Fugitive cut without the voiceover. Come on -- is your most vivid memory the music, or William Conrad's voice, " Dr. Richard Kimble, an innocent victim of blind justice..."?
Still, I'm glad I have it. Where else are you going to find Beany & Cecil, Captain Midnight, Soupy Sales, etc. A lot of old friends are here.
The words of Bob Hope's theme song say it best -- "Thanks for the memories."

3.0 out of 5 stars TV's Hits, Volume 4 October 25, 2011
By Claude
Format:Audio CD|Amazon Verified Purchase
I was specifically looking for the "Naked City" theme. The theme is done beautifully. However, it does not play the entire theme. I was expecting the entire theme. Other than that, it is a great CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellant Collection of TV Themes November 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Amazon Verified Purchase
A great journey down memory lane. I remember most of the themes from the first five volumes of this set. After the mid Eighties, I watched very little commercial TV so the last two volumes of this set have little to offer me.

This CD is a step back chronologically speaking. It picks up material from the fifties and sixties. It also shows, rather convincingly, that the poor sound quality of the first two CDs was only partly the fault of a lackadaisical attitude on behalf of the producers. Even though the third and most of this CD show what can be done if you really try, it also shows that some aspects of poor originals can't be rectified.

"The Real McCoys" has equilization problems with both the highs and the lows. The resulting track has a very hollow sound. A few other tracks sound a bit off, but the problem sounds like a less than full range microphone was used to record the vocals; the vocals seem to lack much in either the upper or lower frequencies. See "The Everglades" and "Candid Camera."

All of these tracks seem to be the original themes from the several TV series.

Despite audio problems with a few of these tracks, this CD can be highly recommended for the purist as well as those who simply want a strole down memory lane.

I rated this item as "Just Okay" pretty much only because I'm 35 years old and these tracks are all from WAY before my time. In fact, I only recognized a few of them from re-runs. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars This soundtrack doesn't offer the best clips
If this soundtrack had more clips that went with the themes to shows it would be of higher interest to customers.
