Barney Miller was one of my dad’s favourite shows back in the seventies. I occasionally set aside some time to watch it with him, not knowing that those were some of the last moments we’d spend together.
And of course, for me the best part of the show was the exceptionally cool theme song written by Jack Elliott and Allyn Ferguson. Although there is some confusion as to who played that sweet opening bass line and just as sweet guitar….all versions were apparently done by the same two players: bass – Chuck Berghofer guitar: Dan Ferguson Credit also to Allyn Ferguson (electric piano), Paul Humphrey (drums) and Chuck Findley (trumpet.
