Themes From Hit TV Shows

Peter Pan records presents your favorite TV themes.

The music on this Peter Pan record is a lot like the cover art: bland, homogenous, and bearing only a mild resemblence to the original article. Millions of kids across the country must have been vaguely disappointed when they figured out that these low-budget arrangements of their favorite TV themes were decidedly not the original songs by the original artists. Who wouldn't have been at least slightly let down to discover that they'd just purchased a version of the Six Million Dollar Man theme that skips over the entire spoken-word introduction?

I have learned that there's usually a gem in every box of junk, and the prize on this one is probably the Hawaii Five-O theme, a tune which the "Pop Singers and Orchestra" take right over the top and back.

If only I had the two releases advertised on the back of the jacket -- Themes from Hit TV Shows Volume 1, and something called Disco Duck Dance Party -- my life would be (almost) complete. Thanks, Peter Pan, wherever you are!

Songs:

Hawaii Five-O (MP3) One of the craziest renditions of the classic Ventures tune anywhere!
Sanford and Son (MP3) The Sanford and Son theme is so funky that even this cheezebox rendition is pretty good.
One Day at a Time (Real Audio) I didn't know One Day at a Time was a country song -- did you?

I heard that the first volume was even better! (06-25-1998)

Ken Dashner (kdashner@interx.net) says:
I actually had the other volume in the series. Even as a child I thought the song versions hilariously bad. I remember it had Good Times, Laverne and Shirley, Baretta, and The Rockford Files themes on it... wish I still had it! (06-16-1998)

John Vawter (jpvawter@earthlink.net) says:
GREAT guitar player on the "Hawaii Five-O" theme; it must've been hell to play when the rest of the band couldn't keep a steady beat! SLAMMIN' bass player on the "Sanford & Son" theme! That was Bootsy Collins, right? "One Day at a Time" sounded like it was recorded by the Del Rubio Triplets. "So walk on the BEAT" - it's great how they punch up that word! (06-15-1998)

Eric Hodges (ehodges@hotmail.com) says:
