Themes From Hit TV Shows

Peter Pan records presents your favorite TV themes.

The music on this Peter Pan record is a lot like the cover art: bland, homogenous, and bearing only a mild resemblence to the original article. Millions of kids across the country must have been vaguely disappointed when they figured out that these low-budget arrangements of their favorite TV themes were decidedly not the original songs by the original artists. Who wouldn't have been at least slightly let down to discover that they'd just purchased a version of the Six Million Dollar Man theme that skips over the entire spoken-word introduction?

I have learned that there's usually a gem in every box of junk, and the prize on this one is probably the Hawaii Five-O theme, a tune which the "Pop Singers and Orchestra" take right over the top and back.

If only I had the two releases advertised on the back of the jacket -- Themes from Hit TV Shows Volume 1, and something called Disco Duck Dance Party -- my life would be (almost) complete. Thanks, Peter Pan, wherever you are!

Hawaii Five-O (MP3) One of the craziest renditions of the classic Ventures tune anywhere!
Sanford and Son (MP3) The Sanford and Son theme is so funky that even this cheezebox rendition is pretty good.
One Day at a Time (Real Audio) I didn't know One Day at a Time was a country song -- did you?

Of the three cuts from "Themes From Hit TV Shows" featured in the Vinyl Museum, the theme from "Sanford and Son" was actually quite good, and quite similar to the original recording of the song that appeared on the soundtrack of the show with the opening and closing credits.

But the other two spotlighted selections were nauseating! (08-13-2002)

Where can I find the guitar tab chords to the "Chico And The Man" song on the internet? I have always wanted to learn how to play it. Is it on the internet for free, the guitar tab chords (not the audio file)?

DG says:
When I was a kid, I had an album similar to this (probably made by the same company) that had themes from Happy Days, M*A*S*H, Welcome Back Kotter, and several others.
