The extra tracks were even better than the HONEY WEST (which I already had) and the BURKE'S LAW soundtracks. I'm talking about the other 4 STAR TV production track RICHARD DIAMOND 'nervous" track. It is not on the "Music from Richard Diamond" record album by Pete Rugolo. I remember it as a music cue for previews to the show, but lost through syndication packaging. So I am so thrilled.

Four Star Television produced a lot of tv shows in the fifties and sixties. At long last we are seeing the music from these shows reissued on cd, the LPs long deleted and fetching a lot on money in auctions. Here we have two complete LPs "Burke's Law" and "Honey West" from the sixties with their jazz scores composed and conducted by Herschel Burke Gilbert (in charge of music at Four Star TV) and Joseph Mullendore. From the whisper of the female voice "It's Burkes's Law" we are treated to the theme and 12 other selections from the soundtrack, including variations on the main theme. Mullendore's "Honey West" gives us both the opening (Wild Honey) and closing (Sweet Honey) themes plus the fouty second actual tv theme. The music is both exciting and soft at times. The bonus and to me the real gems on this cd are the original main themes from other shows (taken from the actual soundtracks), mainly western and detective. From the comedies we have the themes from "Tom Ewell Show" and "The Rogues" (odd that "From Rogues to Riches" picked instead of "The Rogues"), drama/detective with "Dick Powell Show", "Michael Shayne","Robert Taylor's The Detectives" "Target: The Corrupters" and the westerns "The Rifleman" and Jerry Goldsmith's "Black Saddle". A pity that this LP wasn't made the main part of the cd, but, one hopes that we will get treated to the other themes on this LP and possible the very rare "Rifleman" soundtrack LP in the future. Great music from the original TV soundtracks from Rudy Schrager, Richard Shores, Leith Stevens, Jerry Fielding and the late great Nelson Riddle, who's tv soundtracks such as "The Untouchables", "Route 66" to "City of Angels" and "Project UFO" all need issuing on CD. A great CD for TV music or jazz lovers alike. Almost forget - if you think you've heard "Nervous - Teaser Theme" - you have it was the third theme used on Four Star's "Richard Diamond" composed by Richard Shores.
