TV Music Spectacular - The Thrillers (Record 4) [1978]

Now, on to volume 4 of this great box set of TV themes.
Much for US as well as UK listeners, highlights include the original version of the Z Cars theme, plus great versions of the BBC's Quiller, and ITV's The Sweeney, The Avengers and Callan.
Classic US programmes make up the rest of the album, featuring ionic themes such as The Six Million Dollar Man, Ironside, The Rockford Files, not to mention one of the most recognisable TV themes of all time, Hawaii Five-O!
Many of the tracks on this, and the other albums of this set are in specially re-recorded versions credited to the arranger, plus The London Festival Orchestra, originally formed as an in-house orchestra by Decca in the 1950's, but has since become established as a fine orchestra in its own right, and is still performing today.
I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!
