I bought the album to secure for myself the Greatest American Hero theme song. It is a perfect song for a television show based on whimsy. The rest of the album was clearly the work of Mike Post and his colleague; it was the quality of Joey Scarbury's voice that gave them the individuality they need to survive on their own. It's to be regretted that he appears to have issued any follow-up albums. For the times of the show, he could have sold his songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joey Scarbury is my Hero!!! May 3 2005
By mom2jared - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I just purchased this CD online and I have to say, it is one of the best CDs I have ever listened to. There are only 10 songs on the CD but I enjoyed all of them. My favorite was of course BELIEVE IT OR NOT, which is the theme song from my all time favorite show "THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO". You can never hear that song too many times. I also loved "LOVE ME LIKE THE LAST TIME and THERE IS A RIVER. There is a longer version of SOME OF MY OLD FRIENDS, which is from the episode "The Best Desk Scenario" from "THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO". This longer version has some extra instrumentals which makes it a more lively song than the one played in the episode. I would recommend this CD to anyone who is a fan of the "THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO".

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Lost GEM April 28 2005
By Frank T. Miller - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Thanks to the successful release of the classic TV show THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO on DVD, you now have the chance to visit (or revisit) theme song singer Joey Scarbury's great solo album, originally released back in 1981 when the show was on the air.

This a great album that includes some excellent music. Scarbury has an incredible voice and it's a shame his career was not more successful overall. Aside from the ever popular "Believe It Or Not" GAH theme song, there are quite a few other gems here like "Everything But Love" (written by GAH song writer master Stephen Geyer and Joey himself). Other great tunes include "When She Dances" (Top 50 hit / Billboard) and "Some Of My Old Friends" (which is the only other song, aside from the main theme, that was originally written for the TV show but then later turned into a full version for the album's release).

The CD has been fully remastered and sounds incredible. On top of that, an OUTSTANDING job has been done on the packaging of the CD (CD artwork, booklet, inner tray - it all looks GREAT). I HIGHLY recommend this CD!

3.0 out of 5 stars A fun CD for old "Greatest American Hero" fans Dec 4 2005
By DigitalMan - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I grew up with "The Greatest American Hero" TV series and have always been a fan of that show. I owned this Joey Scarbury album on cassette back when it was first released as a compliment to the show.

To be honest, the music on this CD is a far cry from the music I would ever normally listen to. But as I am a fan of, "The Greatest American Hero" TV series, I was so sorry that they changed the majority of the music for the DVD release of that show. This CD is the only way to hear the songs - or type of songs - that used to be such an integral part of that TV series.

So, this CD in it's own right is not something I would have ever likely have found or chosen to listen to on my own. Honestly, I don't know that it is such a great album. But hearing it now, I like it a lot and it does bring a rush of nostalgic associations to the TV series as it used to be, and memories of my life when I owned the cassette tape way back when....

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good 80's pop! April 30 2005
By B. P. Vidrine - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This album was out of print forever, it seems, and with the release of the Greatest American Hero series on DVD, it since has been re-released. I am very happy to have purchased a copy through Amazon and have always enjoyed the music on this album. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, the title theme to the series, is the best song on here. There are at least 3 other good songs as well. I especially like EVERYTHING BUT LOVE and LOVE ME LIKE THE LAST TIME. Joey's voice reminds me very much of James Taylor. I recommend this CD because I love early 80's music.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's the Greatest! Sept. 24 2005
By Lone Wolf - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I also had the original LP version. It's great that it is now on CD. The show is one of my personal favorite as well as the CD. What would have been a great bonus for this CD would have been an extra CD a soundtrack from the show, like Desperado and maybe the instrumental version of Greatest American Hero (ending credits).

Another great is WKRP In Cincinnati. Somebody buy the rights to this classic gem and make it availible on DVD!
