senryokugai sōsakan (the jacket design shows the English title "The easygoing police") is a comedy TV series about a female detective who is being kept outside of the investigation team. However she still goes to investigate by herself, usually gets in a bit of trouble, to then solve the mystery. You get the idea!
This soundtrack was produced by Konishi Yasuharu (ex-Pizzicato Five). A classic sports theme song from Nippon TV (NTV) was remixed for the first time in history into various versions, making for a recurring theme through the series. All other tracks are brand new compositions by Konishi. Featured are male chorus group Time Five (formed in 1968 and still today includes all original members) and jazz band TRI4TH.
