I picked this album up to help complete my Ultra-Lounge collection, and they haven't missed the mark with Crime Scene.
With jazzy and slick tunes, this one doesn't fail to please. Theme songs to TV shows and movies alike make up a refreshingly familiar and cool set of tunes.
Some reviewers have complained that themes like "Pink Panther" and "Hawaii 5-0" should be included, but this CD introduced me to some theme songs that I'd never heard before ("Walk on the Wild Side," "Search for Vulcan") and besides, "Pink Panther" is already on Mondo Hollywood.
The best part of this entire album is the last (real) track, "Music to Be Murdered By." Jeff Alexander is credited, but the track is introduced by the Master of Suspense and Macabre himself, Sir Alfred Hitchcock, who assures us that "naturally, the record is long playing, even though you may not be." It's a morbid yet pleasant surprise.
The very last track, a "bonus," continues Ultra-Lounge's long-running inside joke with the "Man About Town" soap opera series, this time a love poem (the Hammond Organ is still there).
All in all, an excellent disk for rainy days and planning your next bank heist.

It was Thursday, which didn't matter because every day is dark in this business. She walked in on a pair of gams that seemed taller than she was, stuffed down into a pair of heels that whispered a special message to my trouser occupant. Her cigarette was held by a long holder, suggesting a classy dame, but her eyes had the jaded sensibility of a street walker. She sat down and crossed her legs, letting a little more thigh than I expected peek out of the slit in her skirt. She exhaled a lungful of Lucky Strike and smirked at me. My pistol was in an uncomfortable bind, so I readjusted it and asked her what I could do for her. She asked me to play some music, so I threw on The Crime Scene CD. She looked me up and down and said "That's a nice disc." That's how the whole thing got started . . .

When I went to resubmit this under my account name, I found that my opinions about this volume have really changed. I like the CD much better. It GROWS on you, and it becomes one of the series' strongest entries, as well as the jazziest. And of all the volumes, which are themed, this one's flavor and mood carries through each track better than any of the others.
Ray Anthony's "Dragnet" starts things off just right, swinging like a Benny Goodman tune after the stodgy marching intro. "Room 43," the song it's packaged with, is highly reminiscent of something you'd hear in an old mobster or detective film. It's a great jazzy tune, not upstaged by "Dragnet" before it and building to a strong climax. Also capturing that detective mystery/film noir feel with uncanny precision are Elmer Bernstein's "Thinking of Baby" (he also helmed "Staccato's Theme" and wrote "The Silencers," both on this volume) and the gorgeous "Big Town" by Laurindo Almeida and the Dansaneros. On of the best tracks, there's just no getting tired of this one. Poetic and dreamy, yet moody, lonely, and a little bit dark, it pretty much defines the CD. And Vikki Carr's "The Silencers," from the Matt Helm film, has it all: sexy, teasing, and a little murderous. (And catch those double entendres!) Love the closing verse, with the trombone in the background!
Billy May headlines two incredible tracks this time around. First up is the taut, ominous, esplosive "The Man with the Golden Arm," rocking so hard that you get caught up in the beat. The snarling trumpets, the slurping saxophones, the blaring trombones...May always knew how to arrange a hit.

This disc has a personality that hits hard and makes you like it. While the jazzy take on the Dragnet theme is not one Jack Webb would approve of, it's a lot more exciting. Then there's the definitely un-jazzy yet exciting theme from The Untouchables which exudes the danger and relentlessness of its namesake and builds into a climax that makes you want to pick up a tommy gun and join the fight. One of the most outstanding songs is From Russia with Love- classic lounge you'll never want to skip. Of course the James Bond theme-which could make any movie watchable- is the top draw. The only irritating thing about the CD is the "Peter Gunn Suite" track: it plays through highly forgetable music from the show forever and THEN plays the irresistable theme you REALLY want to hear. Drives me nuts! They should play the theme twice just to make up for all that other garbage. Besides the well known themes are some very unique and fun bits, all in that style we can't find enough of. Push the button and get it!

This disc is just plain slick. Virtually every track is a perfect example of the whole wacky-but-cool vibe that's the trademark of Ultra-Lounge series. Vicki Carr's turn on "The Silencers" will turn boys into men, Ray Anthony reminds us that the Peter Gunn Theme is the coolest groove ever written, and Elmer Bernstein teaches us what those horns are for on "Thinking of Baby."
