Very surprised that the Theme From Cheers (Where
Everybody Knows Your Name) by Gary Portnoy only reached
#83 in the charts because I remember hearing it on the
radio quite a few times in the NY area. I've had two
copies of the song and both have what sounds like a
slight digital glitch at 1:37 on the word "are." Those
sources are Time-Life "Sounds of the 80s - TV Themes"
and I think "Tube Tunes." (I say "I think" because I
can't seem to find that copy.) Does anyone have a copy
that doesn't have the problem? I'm betting its not on
the original single because it sounds digital to me.

I can't begin to guess what caused that glitch, but yes
it's on the original 45 as well, so it's on the master
tape.
I can see it when zooming in, and it looks like either a
vinyl defect or a digital glitch, but of course it isn't.
It does not sound like a tape splice either so I have no
clue.
Here's video of the 45 playing:

...funny, even though this video is recorded "open air"
you can still hear the glitch. In the video it occurs at
(1:54).

FYI, Time-Life's Sounds Of The Eighties Vol. 32 TV Themes Of The '80s (1996) is digitally exactly 0.56 dB quieter than Rhino's Tube Tunes Vol. 3 The '80s (1995). Both have the glitch at 1:37.

Just heard the song on an album on Napster called
"Keeper" that doesn't have the glitch at 1:37.

Interesting. It sounds like the original recording too.
Sounds like a drum hit at 1:37.

Just listened to the version on the "Keeper" album via
YouTube and the glitch is still there. It's a small
warble on the word "are." Must be on the master tape.
Check it out:
