Hair – Original Movie Soundtrack

LP (Item 77569) RCA, 1979 — Condition: Used
2LP Gatefold

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 12

A surprisingly great little soundtrack for the film version of Hair – re-arranged and musically directed by Galt MacDermot himself! There's a smoother, slicker feel to the tunes than heard on the Broadway soundtrack – with lots of nice 70s electric touches, and, if anything, a refinement of Galt's spacious approach to rhythms. There's more than a bit of funk on the set, and musicians in the group include Bernard Purdie, Wilbur Bascomb, Cornell Dupree, and Galt himself! 2LPs worth of tracks, and titles include "I Got Life", "Party Music", "Aquarius", "Sodomy", "Manchester", "Colored Spade", "Air", "I'm Black/Ain't Got No", "Where Do I Go", "Black Boys", "Walking In Space", "Easy To Be Hard", "Good Morning Sunshine", and "What A Piece Of Work Is Man".

Weird weird work from Galt MacDermot!

Mackenna's Gold
RCA, 1969. Sealed
A western soundtrack – but one that's groovier than you might expect, given that the music was done by Quincy and Jose! The general style is strings and western themes, but Quincy manages to put a bit of bounce at the bottom – using an electric bass in a syncopated style that's quite ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of the first great electric moments for Henry Mancini in the 70s – and a record that's got a way groovier sound than you might expect from the title!

Sodom & Gomorrah
RCA, 1962. Near Mint-
The key word in describing Rozsa's score is sweeping – with soaring, string heavy arrangements – but it's the intricacies and delicate little textures that make it a classic. Above and beyond so many archetypal soundtracks– Sodom & Gomorrah's sounds are transcendent! LP, Vinyl record album

A great set of tracks from Indian films of the 60s – featuring more than a few uptempo numbers with a lively dancing groove. The music isn't really funky, but there's loads of heavy percussion, ear-piercing strings, and sweet lead vocals that remind us of some of the tracks on the Doob Doob ... LP, Vinyl record album
