Track 1 - Theme From Star Wars
Track 2 - Rocket Man
Track 3 - Theme From The Six Million Dollar Man
Track 4 - Beyond The Outer Limits
Track 5 - Starlight
Track 6 - Theme From Star Trek
Track 7 - Theme from 2001
Track 8 - Space Race
Track 9 - Theme From The Bionic Woman
Track 10 - Theme From Superman

Who would have thought that a bunch of movie and t.v themes produced for a children's record could be so insanely funky! It's so good that I had no hesitation in giving it the "Rare Groove" label because most of these tracks have the qualities that groove junkies go crazy over. "Theme From Six Million Dollar Man", "Beyond The Outer Limits", "Theme From 2001" and "Space Race" are all fantastic. In fact the only song that doesn't hit the spot is "Rocket Man". A real treat of an album that will have you coming back for more again and again.

I love this album!! 'Space Race' is the bomb!! It reminds me of 'The Rockford Files' Theme blasted into synth orbit!! It's always nice to get different versions of 'The Six Million Dollar Man Theme' and 'Star Trek' also. 'Starlight' and 'Theme from Superman' sound like they were made about 10 years earlier than the rest?? A great share - Many thanks!!

Theme from Superman is a truncated copy of the 1959 song Superman by a group called Sandpiper Singers. The ending on the song here (the spoken "Origins of Superman") is NOT on the Sandpiper version.

I got my Sandpiper mp3 at the Music You (Possibly) Won't Hear Anyplace Else Blog
