Soundtrack:Checkmate-John (Johnny) Williams

This is the best Crime Jazz album…period. Peter Gunn is a close second, but this is the champ. The show ran from 1960-62. It starred Doug McClure, Sebastion Cabot and  Anthony George as high priced detectives in San Francisco. It was created by Eric Ambler.

The music is incredible. It’s worth whatever it takes to hunt it up. If you see it in your favorite used record/book store, don’t hesitate…grab it.


About vintage45

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
