Review

[1 / 5]

Who can not listen to "The Addams Family" and not snap your fingers. I don't remember watching a single episode of "Green Acres" or "The Addams Family", but I remember the themes, as do many people. They are quintessential TV themes. They're catchy and they drive themselves deep into your brain where you can never get ride of them.

Now you can find these two tracks on almost any television music collection, which makes the rest of this album very unnecessary. When you take the music outside of the context of 60's music, it simply is lounge music. Admittedly, outside of the Kitsch factor, this genre has had no interest to me. Mizzy has an awkward voice, but not an inappropriate one. His cheerful warble is very similar to the Novelty albums of Ray Stevens or Elmo & Patsy. Maybe these tunes would have been catchy years ago in a Black Edwards movie, but now it is very obsolete. Many of the songs are about the LA lifestyle ("Name Dropping", 'Huff and Puff Song", "Merry Xmas, Hollywood") which makes them rather campy and superficial in content.

You would be better off picking up the highlights in one of the many numerous TV theme compilations that are out on the market.
