Mission Impossible

LP (Item 10469) Dot, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 12

A familiar record – but a fantastic one! You probably all know the famous theme to "Mission Impossible" – Lalo Schfrin's beautiful jazzy number, with three piano notes revolving over and over again with incredible intensity – and the rest of the record is every bit as great, filled with a wonderful mix of groovy styles! The groove ranges from fast bossa to groovy 60s crime jazz to sparer tenser numbers that still manage to move nicely – and listening to the record over the years, our ears are always happily surprised at the level of genius that was allowed expression in the guise of a normal TV soundtrack. Cuts include "Jim On The Move", "The Plot", "The Sniper", "Danger", and "Barney Does It All".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

An extremely groovy soundtrack from Carlo Rustichelli – one that bridges two generations of Italian comedy scores!
