The theme music for Japanese TV series Taiyō ni Hoero! is a nice collection of traditional Funk and Soul which varies from aggressive and dramatic to very laid-back grooves designed to tell a story. Taiyō ni Hoero! ran from 1972 to 1986 and carries the sound of it's era, featuring a soulful mixture of Hammond organs, funky guitar and horn riffs backed by funky grooves. Enjoy a collection of themes from the TV show above, they sure don't make music like this for mainstream TV anymore.
