Barnaby Jones, Dan August, Most Wanted, Cannon

The Invaders (or should I say... THE... IN...VADERS!!)

The first one is actually what most of us will be thinking when hearing Quinn Martin. Finally some of the stellar Cop Show cues making their way onto CD!
Unfortunately, it is just a very small slice of what is still in the archives - the ass-kicking music to Dan August by Dave Grusin and John Elizalde got two episodes here, while there are 26 in total.
Also missing are The Streets of San Francisco  (I once made a DVD-based cue compilation of my own, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pG7oZyriiE8)

Update September 2020:

The Streets of San Francisco, A Man Called Sloane

Looks great! I may have to buy this one. They should have really dug deep and included the original music from the short lived Quinn Martin show A Man Called Sloane (which its pilot was actually all Bruton, Sonoton and KPM music).

Now if some company would only do the Aaron Spelling collection and hit the archives of Charlie's Angels, Vega$ and Starsky & Hutch that would be ultra kick ass.

This should be fun. I don't remember the Invaders, though.

What's on these CDs is apparently whatever was saved by QM's long serving music editor Ken Wilhoit when the company closed down in 1980 - he took as many reels as he could save and stashed them in his garage.  A true American hero!

A Streets Of San Francisco set is due out later this month, which I'm really excited about.

Indeed (American hero), an indeed (TSOSF release)!

The Streets of San Francisco is out now!

As someone who painstakingly recorded many cues from the series (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pG7oZyriiE8), you can imagine how much I value this particular score and how delighted I was at the news of this release. Some hard-hitting funk cues in there border on the Schifrin-esque at times, also Dave Grusin comes to mind, which is all high praise indeed.
