Listen, forget every cliche you've ever heard about this film, because this soundtrack is amazing!

Nice tune! The groovy main theme to this one far outlived the film, and showed up all over the place in the 60s – on instrumental theme records, TV spoofs, and other oddball sources.

A nice little Georges Delerue score to this quirky and sentimental film from the mid 60s.

Post-Tina, Ike Turner changed the name of his band to The Family Vibes, and put out a few nice records of mostly instrumental funk.
