There was a surprising amount of music on this program. I was curious if anyone has ever gone through and noticed when it's been kept intact and where it's been replaced? Was watching a episode on tv the other day that started with Surfin' USA from the Beach Boys and remember many other instances like Eve of Destruction being prominently used in one episode. It's infrequent enough where I'd hope it's been mostly kept intact. I haven't purchased any of the seasons and would like to buy the complete series, but the lack of music in episodes I remember it would definitely influence how much I'd be willing to pay. I've grabbed these list off the A-Team Canon fan website.

Leo, I can confirm that the A-Team DVD sets do contain the original music. I have the first four seasons on DVD and I remember Willie Nelson's "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys" being on "When You Coming Back Range Rider" episode. While I don't recall all of the episodes, I can confirm that the original music is contained on the episodes.

Also, there are no warnings on the packaging that the music has been replaced either.

I highly recommend purchasing these sets.

The thing you have to remember about the music on this show is that most if not all of the songs were re-recorded by studio musicians at the time.  Knight Rider did this as well.  They were not original recordings by the original artists.  This way the licensing was and is cheaper.

I'm not familiar with all of those songs, but many were definitely the original songs done by the original artist, such as the two examples I gave above (Surfin' USA by the Beach Boys and Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire). They aren't rerecordings done by a new artist.

It's my understanding that all of the others in the main list are by the artist shown, with the second smaller section of songs being those done by studio musicians.

There was that episode in which Blondie's One Way or Another was played at the beginning and end of an episode with "Crystal Lake" in the title. I don't know if that is on the DVD for the season it was heard in.

I do know that of the episodes I remember, that the original artists, the origiinal recordings, were used. That 'Range Rider' episode is one of my faves because of Willie Nelson's song that was used, his original recording.

Yup, that's exactly how it was done. Only 'MIAMI VICE' went against the grain and used the originals... to Universal's later annoyance as the DVD releases of this were delayed for a few years because of music clearances.

Just watched "Beverly Hills Assault" again last night on DVD, and "The Heat is On" is gone.

Come to think of it, I think that's what it was with A-Team. I know that the song was included on the episode Ranger Rider but it may be that it was recorded by a different singer.
