CD Reviews

TUNE IN to GREAT TUNES!
Giovanni | Chicago, IL | 04/16/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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!"
Classic big band arrangements

(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
Outstanding 2-fer of jazzy arrangements of TV themes
hyperbolium | Earth, USA | 06/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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!"
