Album Notes and Credits
Includes liner notes by RJ Smith.
Digitally remastered by Bob Norberg (Capitol Recording Studios, Hollywood, California).
This is part of Capitol Records' Ultra-Lounge series.
One of the kitschier installments in the Ultra Lounge series, Vol. 7, Crime Scene features a cross-section of easy-listening and movie music culled primarily from Capitol Records' vaults. All of the songs are allegedly "about" or inspired by detective and crime novels and films, so you have movie and television themes (Nelson Riddle's "The Untouchables," "Peter Gunn Suite" as performed by Ray Anthony), as well as songs whose titles imply a crime connection of some sort. It's an enjoyable collection, but it's too incoherent and campy to really be consistently entertaining. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
