4.70 12

A playful score by George Duning for Who's Got The Action? – an early 60s gambling farce starring Dean Martin and Lana Turner! Duning manages to cover quite a bit of stylistic territory here – from Dixieland, to Spanish dance to Japanese strings – and a whole lot of good-natured, sunny 60s cinema sounds full of romance and comedy. It all kicks off with the groovy strings, brass and bongos-flavored main titles theme, and it manages to get even groovier and more adventurous from there! Includes "Roza", "Good Morning, Mr. Flood", "Saturday Night", "Blue Eyes", "Japanese Record", "Clutch In Dutch", "The Culprit", "Empty Spaces", "Shaky Clutch/Bookie Blues", "Alibi/Bridal Brisket", "Bastille Day/Finale" and more! This great Kritzerland CD edition has some bonus tracks, too – including a a demo vocal version of "Who's Got The Action" with vocals and lyrics by Jack Brooks, plus "La Scala" and a couple of cinematic adaptations of Brahms and Beethoven.
