Sanford and Son Theme Song

1972-1977

This is really old.

Sanford and Son was an American sitcom that starred the late Redd Foxx as a 65-year-old junk dealer, and his son, played by Demond Wilson. In 2007, Time magazine included the show in their “100 Best TV Shows of All Time” list.

The theme song is entitled “The Streetbeater” and was composed by the great Quincy Jones. It was originally part of Quincy’s 1973 release You’ve Got it Bad, Girl, and was also released as a 7″ vinyl single. It also made it to the Quincy Jones Greatest Hits compilation album released in 1996.
