Picks and Pans Review: Miami Vice

There was no reason to wait for Crockett and Tubbs's second season on the tube to issue this compilation album: The best songs on this bewilderingly popular record, Jan Hammer's original one-minute Miami Vice theme and Phil Collins' atmospheric In the Air Tonight, were used in the show's first episodes. Others include two typically fusty Glenn Frey tracks and a surfeit of Hammer instrumental filler. The only thing this weary collection accomplishes is that it makes the Tina Turner selection, You Better Be Good to Me, sound attractive by comparison. (MCA)
