5.0 out of 5 stars Original Sporting Themes At Their Best! 1 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD

2.) Test Cricket
3.) World Cup Grandstand
4.) Ski Sunday
5.) Snooker
6.) Rugby Special
7.) Wimbledon
8.) Sportsnight
9.) Question Of Sport
11.)Commonwealth Games
12.)World Cup Rugby

This is a marvellous collection of original sporting themes taken from BBC sporting programmes spanning 3 decades 1960s - 1980s. Each of the 18 tracks is the full length composition and the quality of the recordings is first class. Many will be familiar as they are still used today, but some you're likely to have forgot about but will recall again when you hear them. If you're still able to order a copy of this item I would fully recommend it, as far as I'm aware there's no other compilation quite like it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic 18 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Excellent C.D, a real blast from the past. No-one writes sports music like the BBC. Dropped a star as there is no formula 1 track (misleading with a racecar on the cover).

4.0 out of 5 stars Just want I expected 14 Feb 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Just as I expected. Only 4 stars because it's not the original versions of the tracks for example The Chain by Fleetwood Mac (F1) or Soul Limbo by Brooker T and the MGs (cricket) etc but still perfectly acceptable synth cover if you want a quick blast from the past plus if you aren't familiar with the originals they will sound more or less just like they do on the telly.

The addition of the Winter Olympics themes is nice and brings it up date.

Only watchout is the Sportnight theme and snooker theme tunes are mixed up - listen the to the preview and you see what I mean. What is labelled as the snooker theme is actually the sports night theme and vice cerca, doesn't matter when you are listening to the album but did confuse me initially :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD of sports music 25 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album on cassette a few years ago and recently upgraded to CD.

It contains all the key BBC sports themes that we all know and love, and it's good to listen to give them the listening attention that they actually deserve.

It is also interesting to listen to the parts of the music that you never get to hear on TV due to the music being faded out after the titles. For example, who knew how long the snooker music went on for!

The CD is also worth buying for the World Cup Grandstand track, which is from the 1986 World Cup coverage. I remember liking this at the time and, if you don't know it, it is a very upbeat theme (a bit like a fanfare) that is a good addition to this CD.

The only downside is the price that it is being sold at by Amazon sellers, so you might have to keep coming back or look on eBay to see if a cheaper CD becomes available.

Does what it says on the tin, and who doesn't want to be able to play the Ski Sunday music whenever they want to!!!
