Hawaii 5-0 Morton Stevens Capitol ST 410, 1969
Hawaii 5-0 album cover

Morton Stevens was obviously absorbing many influences during writing this soundtrack to the CBS TV series. A classic theme is backed up by a great mix of jazz and funk influenced tracks. There's an open, reverb-heavy sound to many of the tracks and a distinctly slow psychdelic influence in places. Check out "Front Streets" for a fine example of 1960's breakbeat funk.

Overall Rating: 4

Track listing:

Hawaii 5-0 | Call To Danger | McGarrett's Theme | Front Street | The Long Wait | Blues Trip | The Floater | Interlude | Operation Smash | Beach Trip | Up Tight | The Chase / Hawaii 5-0 |
