Loved the feel of this album. The style is so 60s unless, of course you're a big band jazz fan in which case it will still feel current.

Meet Me On The Strip! 17 Feb. 2007
By Linda G. Chronister - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ladies: put on your cocktail dresses and men: your white sports coats and black bowties! Turn the lights low, get out your pink elephant swizzle sticks and silver bullet cocktail shakers!

When I saw this CD online from yesteryear's "77 Sunset Strip" series, I just had to listen! I did, and knew I had to have it. This is one suave, fun, upbeat collection with awesome orchestral arrangements! (Vibraphones; oboes; horns; flutes; drums; piano, etc.) This music will make you feel young, sexy and sophisticated all at once! It personally took me back to my teenage crushes on Roger Moore and that Kaa-razy Kool Kookie Kharacter!

This musical mood-journey appropriately begins with the original finger-poppin' `77' theme, which put an immediate smile on my face with its familiar chorus/chant and waa-waa saxophone. The theme is repeated three more times: the second, in a catchy cha-cha version with great horns; the third time, the melody slinks out of "Blue Night On The Strip" like a sex kitten from her boudoir, then... STRUTS out its finale in Swinging on The Strip!

My personal other favorites: "Late At Bailey's Pad": sneaky, seductive and upbeat; the carefree "I Get A Kick Out Of You": great piano, bongos; "Caper At The Coffee House": another finger-popper with a mischievous sleuthing edge to it; "You Took Advantage Of Me": An old-fashioned ditty that puts you right at the `piano bar' and makes you want to grab a `mike' and sing (or at least tap your foot!); "Stu Bailey's Blues" - not so `blue'! I find it exciting.

My final word? This CD is cool background music for the `bachelor or bachelorette pad', cocktail/retro parties, and on-the-road listening entertainment!

77 Suinset Strip sound track 28 May 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is outstanding. West Coast cool jazz performed by Warren Barker and a group of uncredited but highly talented musicians. I have always wondered why the musicians have never been identified because there is some excellent piano, vibes and horn work on this album. The German CD reissue has excellent sound quality. I was listening to this album in 1959 and still listen to it in 2004. Henry Mancini created the private eye jazz style ("Peter Gunn") but Warren Barker added greatly to it with this album.

Kookie Kookie, Lend me your comb 15 Aug. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
77 Sunset Strip was the first and best of the Warner Bros. 50's detective shows. The cast was above average, the stories, which were copied for the other shows that followed, were well written. After listening to this cd, you realize this album could have stood for it's self and not just background music. I highly recommend this hard to find cd if you are a fan of 50's big band.

Cool and Crisp 14 Nov. 2012
By Brent Butler - Published on Amazon.com

This first thing I like to know about an MP3 album is how it compares to physical media. No worries on that account here ... this album sounds great on MP3. The instruments sound crisp and detailed. The range is excellent, there is no distortion at the higher and lower ends. The stereo separation is pleasing.

How about the music itself? It's cool jazz, arranged to fit the style and the mood of late 50s - early 60s TV ... and TV jazz in those days was very fine indeed. The skill of the musicians in these numbers is top notch. The notes on the horns are pure and the piano play had a light and adroit touch. You'd swear the bass was across the room from you.

Of course this album isn't really a soundtrack. The classic theme from the show is reinterpreted here, not recreated. This is a studio album of music that might have appeared in the show, but arranged for these studio performances as full bodied jazz ... not the light background versions that would have accompanied the action on film.

On one point I was a bit conflicted about whether to be disappointed or smug. One of the TV shows had a jazz combo at Dino's (next door to the agency's office) doing a unique turn on the theme song as a full musical number. The WB shows of that day were relaxed enough to do that, for example every Hawaiian Eye had a full musical number sung by Connie Stevens. I happened to record that 77 Sunset Strip show years ago when it played on the then "Good Life TV Network", and eventually managed to transfer it to my computer. There probably aren't many people with a recording of that number. I was halfway expecting it to be on this album (when I thought it might be a soundtrack). It would have given me a better recording of it, but as it is I'm still one of probably a very few people to possess that. LOL

I particularly like the Cha Cha arrangement of the theme. There is also a version of the theme in a blues arrangement a la "Harlem Nocturne" (the music used as the theme for the Mike Hammer TV series). A swing arrangement is also included.

To wrap this up, the MP3 album sounds great. The jazz is all kinds of fun to listen to, performed by real pros. These tracks are upbeat, and they'll keep you moving while you listen. ;-)

Highly recommended.

fond memories 22 Jan. 2011
By Mat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album was a surprise for me from the days when the TV show was running and my mother gave it to me. I was a kid, but I listened to it often and being able to listen to it again after five decades was quite nice. What is surprising that it sounds to my ear as a pretty good jazz album. I have always liked the extensive use of bass clarinet on it. The album includes several settings of some standards as well as the TV show theme and two different variations on it. It is definately a product of its time. Enjoy.
