"If you are a fan of TV theme songs, then you probably already have the "TV Tunes" series, so forget this one. Not only is it a re-hash of tracks from their other cd's, they STILL include (and here's what makes my blood boil) their own crummy remakes of certain theme songs, such as "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "WKRP in Cincinatti" and "Gilligan's Island". Avoid this. Make your own by taping the songs off the TV and it would be far, far better."
A Rehash of Lousy Copies

"I agree with the music fan from Dearborn, Mi. It is a re-hash of a lot of crummy remakes and poorly recorded originals. I recorded Rawhide and Gilligan's Island off my TV set with better sound, as well as the original and superior versions of the Twilight Zone and Wild Wild West (with a cool guitar riff, not this Mantovani styled remake). If you really don't care about these type of things, then this is the disc for you. Avoid this if you are a true television theme aficionado."
TV FANS DREAM!

"Any fan of tv needs this cd. I saw a previous listener lambasted this cd, what he/she said was untrue. While some of the songs may have been redone (VERY few), they are either to a) make them longer, or b) bring the sounds up to par with the others. Some of the original recordings would just not have held up. This cd even includes a rare rendition of the infamous All In The Family theme sung by Carroll O'Connor and Jean Stapleton with additional lyrics. The only notable songs left out from the CBS collection are Newhart (82-90) and Maude. The Golden Palace would have also been nice, but it is still a wonderful cd."
