The Show

The lyrics to the Baretta theme are heard for the very first time in this episode, as it plays during a surveillance scene. Here, they are sung by L.A. session singer Jim Gilstrap, but when the vocal version of the theme was featured starting in the second season, it was sung by Sammy Davis, Jr.
