Format: Audio CD
There would be no Miami Vice without Don Johnson or Philip Michael Thomas. The same and not less can be said about Jan Hammer. When he left the series in the last season (1988-1989), even though his successor Tim Truman did a good job, it was like one of the principal characters left. This album contains the quintessential Miami Vice music, although Jan Hammer did material for a 5 CD set. It would be nice to have a Hammer's Miami Vice collection released one day, a complete one (you can find more Miami Vice music on "Snapshots 1.2", Miami Vice I, II, III).
All the music on this CD may be heard on Miami Vice, but the booklet informs that "Forever Tonight" (previously heard with vocals in the albun "Hammer") and "Before the Storm" are not Miami Vice tracks. These two tracks are, respectively, from "Child's play" and "Love at First Sight" episodes of the fourth season (after the release of this album). The hits "Miami Vice Theme" (unfortunately not the rare remix version unavailable on CD, nor the first four episodes "off-guitar version") and "Crockett's Theme" are together with great icons of the series. "Rico's Blues" (along with "Flashback" from Miami Vice volume I) could be named as "Tubbs' theme". "Theresa" shows Jan's refined production on combination of sounds. This can also be said about most tracks of the album, "Before the storm" and its Rhodes piano, "Forever Tonight" (and its remix) with the synth sounds, "Colombia" with the Andean flutes and percussion blocks (actually Farlight CMI samples) are just some examples.
