I am not a fan of this style of music, so i won't vote on it. But i did buy it, mostly hopping there would be mostly the jazzier sounds, like The pink Panther {which was very good}. But there was too much orchrestral music with vocals, which i didn't care for at all. Over all i didn't like it, and sold it.

I agree. I picked this up for $4 (Newbury Comics, Boston MA) and the $4 covers the cost of the excellent Pink Panther theme. The rest is beautifully recorded, but is extremely mellow for my tastes. The Peter Gunn theme is pretty tepid too; I prefer the original stereo version on an old RCA CD that I have.

Well, I think some of the reviews on that site are totally fake to enhance sales through the links provided.

It's not that the reviews are fake...the posters are real..BUT...let's just say that the opinions on there sometime conflict with the majority of opinions in the mainstream audio community...

This is like to different albums mashed up and I happen to like just the instrumental, jazzier part. It's only three songs, but I'd bought this title again, if only for The Pink Panther Theme - one of the definite demo songs to me. It's almost perfect in surround, when the brass section is coming at you from the rears. Saaaaaaah! Errrm, a seven.
