Product Description:

Compilation producers: Karen Ahmed, Hillary Bratton, Reggie Collins.
Includes liner notes by Tim Scanlin.
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
Over the years, there have been plenty of compilations of television theme songs, but for scope, selection, and value, none beat Rhino's 2002 collection, TV Land Presents Favorite TV Theme Songs. Containing a generous 40 tracks, the disc runs the gamut from I Love Lucy to The Golden Girls (after the '80s, theme songs kind of faded away from network TV, replaced by jingles on Seinfeld and Frasier, though Friends, The Simpsons, The Sopranos, and Six Feet Under all had themes worthy of inclusion in a future volume of this kind), and it hits nearly all of the big, memorable themes, including The Twilight Zone, Bonanza, Batman, Star Trek, The Brady Bunch, "Movin' On Up," The Rockford Files, Barney Miller, Chico and the Man, "Theme from the Dukes of Hazzard," and "Theme from Greatest American Hero (Believe it or Not)," among others. Really, the only major theme missing is that from WKRP In Cincinnati, but given the number of tracks on this compilation, it's hard to carp about absences, particularly since the fidelity is about as good as it could be. This isn't the kind of collection that you'd listen to all that often, but it's nice to have it around whenever you need a fix of nostalgia. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
