• Various Artists - Watching the Detectives - Themes and Music From Classic TV Crime Shows and Movies

Crime shows alongside Westerns and sit coms had been a mainstay of American radio for many years when TV first launched seriously in the late 1940's. It was natural therefore that the same genres would be equally popular as the new medium took its hold on the public imagination.

Much loved TV shows Dragnet, Highway Patrol and M Squad meet great movie themes The Man With The Golden Arm and Touch of Evil.

Superbly crafted and catchy songs from big name orchestras such as Ray Anthony, Henry Mancini, Nelson Riddle, Count Basie, Pete Rugolo and more.
