Six Million Dollar TV Themes repackages the John Gregory Orchestra's classic TV's Greatest Detective Hits (aka The Detectives), arguably the finest of the many television theme collections released during the 1970s. Gregory's funky, silky-smooth renditions of these familiar melodies perfectly capture the essence of the Me Decade; he's an expert arranger, infusing new cinematic dimensions into the timeless music of "The Rockford Files," "Kojak," and "The Theme from SWAT." He also expands on the originals with intriguing new elements like monster bass solos, killer drum breaks, and horns that hit like a flurry of gunfire. Great stuff regardless of whether or not you grew up on the shows in question.
Thanks iTunes for ressurecting these great tracks, - I owned the original LPs but lost track of them years ago. Great arrangements performed superbly by the best British session players of the time. Remastered, they sound even better now. Excellent value!
