Released as a promotional tie-in with Nickelodeon's TV Land cable channel, Rhino Records' TV Land Crime Stoppers: TV's Greatest P.I. Themes is exactly what the title says. Memorable opening theme music from shows like The Rockford Files, Magnum P.I., Charlie's Angels, Peter Gunn, Hart to Hart, Remington Steele, and 77 Sunset Strip highlights the collection, which features composers like Mike Post, Henry Mancini, Lalo Schifrin, and Mack David. A companion volume is devoted to cop shows, and as you might expect, there isn't a huge difference in style.
