70s TV Episodes containing outstanding music (not theme tunes) playing over some or all of the episode (by StuOz)

by StuOz | created - 16 May 2017 | updated - 9 months ago | Public

A bit of an oddball list for lovers of dated music. I am not so good at talking about music, I am better at just listening to it. The M*A*S*H episode - To Market, To Market - was one of the first ever and the makers of the sit-com did not seem to know what to do with the series score-wise at this stage...we get this almost disco music playing here! What the hell is CHIPS doing here?? 1966 Batman composer - Billy May - scored some CHIPS episodes! Scores by Richard LaSalle (Wonder Woman, Land Of The Giants) are here and Barry Gray (U.F.O., Space 1999) did some great stuff! The Filmation scores (Shazam!, Ark 11, Isis) are a standout!
