The TV Hits albums 1 & 2
Lumberjack? No! Steeplejack.. No! Aw, Uncle Jack.. No!
It's 80s crap! Yaaay!
There are a few moments here which make good listening, but there's also a slice of 80s doggerel at its worst.
There's the theme from 'Connie' - which is as forgettable as the show itself, provided you heard of it in order to forget it. Sorry for reminding you about it now.
There's some kind of track from Miami Vice on there but not the theme itself, what's going on there - it clearly says 'Miami Vice' on the cover, bloody swizz. And on the second volume we're treated to the abominable 'Surprise Surprise!' theme tune which I play now and again, just to remind myself how nice it is to not listen to it. Did you know Sue Pollard released a single? Yep, that's here too.
On the up-side, there's Chas & Dave on both records with their TV offerings 'Crackerjack' and 'In Sickness and in Health'..'Blott on the Landscape'.. And an early version of the 'The Bill' theme tune with a funky bit a couple of minutes in!
How can you resist?
