Album based on excerpts from the Soundtrack of the NBC-TV series of "M Squad."

Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover art.

From Billboard - June 15, 1959: With the success of "Peter Gunn" and 77 Sunset Strip," TV programs that utilize jazz themes in their background scores, this similar set has a strong chance to step out for big sales. The well-known main theme, cleared by Count Basie is done with a sound that reminds of the Basie orchestra. Cover features Lee Marvin, star of "M Squad," in a shot from one of the telecasts. Stereo enhances appreciation of the set. A likely big one.
