• Various Artists - Great Hit Movie & TV Themes 1957-1962

In the late 1950s and early 60s it wasn't unusual for the music from films and TV shows to make it to the charts. This excellent 32 track collection from Jasmine is testament to that as the first 30 titles all made the US charts and many also charted in the UK.

Some of these melodies are almost timeless and have endured the test of time longer than the movies or shows they came from. You can remember 'The Dark at the 'Top of the Stairs' but do you know the movie? You'll certainly recognise 'A Swingin' Safari' but do you have a clue about Match Game the TV show that used the theme?

Features some of the biggest names in 50s easy listening music: Leroy Anderson; Mantovani; Ray Anthony; Billy Vaughn; Nelson Riddle; Lawrence Welk and more.

Fully detailed liner notes.
