Music for TV Dinners (1997)

For anyone who started collecting library music in just the last decade or so, these are often the first 2 albums to enter their collection. For me, these ARE the 2 discs that started it all. Sure, I'd already had plenty of Percy Faith, Henry Mancini, 101 Strings, etc. in my collection by the mid-90's. And although it's in the same vein, it's not really library music. Released in 1997 from the now defunct Scamp Records (owned by Caroline), these 2 discs have been out-of-print for a number of years now and finding a copy, although not impossible, is getting harder to come by. Every track is straight from the archives of APM (Associated Production Music). So if you liked the music on Ren & Stimpy, you'll definitely enjoy this! See comments for track listings on the first album. DOWNLOAD LINKS: Music For TV Dinners - VOL. 1 and Music for TV Dinners - The '60's

Today's trivia .. Workaday World was in the Capitol Hi-Q library, reel L-96. It has a couple of reels of KPM.

VR, I'm not sure how I can help. I can't get in either. Can anyone? Actually, back when I included that blog on my list of links, it was open to everyone. Obviously that has since changed. The link is useless now, so I've removed it.

..And CrombieSterling were also collectively known as Frank Sterling.

I already downloaded that from another site. Thanks, Yowp, btw, for the info on the KPM in the Hi-Q library. I'd also be interested if JW Media Music which Baikinange posted wasn't also part of the Hi-Q, as their site has some albums with very familiar sounding music and one of the now rare 1960s Post Cereal influenced "Linus the Lion-Hearted" shorts with Rory Raccoon, the spokeman of "Corn Toasties":, on YouTube, "Rest Cured", has both a JW Media cue, Ronald Hanmer's "Sports Fever", then another "Ren and Stimpy" KPM regular by Van Phillips [the two libraries shared the same composers]"Merry as a grig", then later "Rest Cured" with Rory Raccoon from Linus the Lion-Hearted ends with Sports Fever again.
