Burke’s Law had the preposterous premise of a Chief of Police in Los Angeles charging around the metropolis solving crimes “his way”- according to “Burke’s Law” in a Rolls Royce, yet! No matter, this was glamorous television where Amos Burke (Gene Barry) managed to get a different girl each week.

Honey West was spun off from that series and starred the delicious Anne Francis as the eponymous P.I. Her gimmick was an ocelot called Bruce…..hmmm. But should could take care of herself, somewhat paving the way for Mrs. Peel in The Avengers.


Both scores from these series which were hatched by Four Star Television had two of Hollywood’s greatest (some would say wholly underrated) composers-for-hire, Herschel Burke Gilbert and Joe Mullendore doing the musical honours. This sensational album puts music they scored, or was based on, these two shows. In addition, we’ve tacked on ten further tracks from other shows from that stable of the late 50’s – here for the first time on CD in their original stereo recordings with a disc-busting 76 minutes! Full notes and photos included.
