Cop Show Themes, The Henry Mancini RCA APL1-1896, 1976
Cop Show Themes, The album cover

Henry Mancini, the composer responsible for adding the beat to film music through his 'Peter Gunn' scores, turns up the heat with this great collection of cover versions. The band includes funk heavyweight Harvey Mason and guitarist Lee Ritenour and a great, tight brass section. While not strictly a soundtrack album, this LP merits a mention as it includes the definitive funk version of the theme from 'The Streets Of San Francisco'. All of the other tracks on the album are pretty damn funky, and include all of the 1970s cop show favourites ('Kojak', 'SWAT', 'Baretta's Theme' and more).

Overall Rating: 4
