Groovy 60s spy soundtrack work – with a mod French twist! The CD documents a series of excellent scores by French composer Michel Magne – written for a run of mid 60s films based around the character of OSS 117 – a James Bond-like secret agent known to the French public through a series of 242 successful novels! The scope of OSS 117's adventures was large – as globe-spanning as that of James Bond, a fact that gave Magne plenty of room to throw in cool exotic, groovy, and jazzy elements to the soundtracks – in a style that was ultimately a heck of a lot more lively than that of John Barry, and which easily matches the best 60s soundtrack work of Lalo Schifrin, Jerry Goldsmith, or Hugo Montenegro! We'd honestly never heard any of these tracks before – but our love of Magne led us to the set, and we were certainly rewarded – as the 23 track package is overflowing with incredibly groovy tunes, and has the feel of some of the best Crippled Dick collections from years past! The four films on the set include OSS 117 Se Dechaine, Banco A Bangkok Pour OSS 117, Furia A Bahia Pour OSS 117, and Atout Coeur A Tokyo Pour OSS 117 – and titles include "OSS 117 Hully Gully", "Banco A Bangkok", "Poursuite Thailandaise", "Hubert Rit Jaune", "Samba Furiosa", and "Slow Du Soleil Levant" – as well as a bonus remix track by Roudoudou!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Beautiful vocal tunes from classic Ennio Morricone soundtracks! Although much of the Morricone work we stock is instrumental, and although some of these scores do have a moody wordless vocal approach, a number of other films that Il Maestro worked on did have strong lead vocal themes – sung ... CD

Excellent vocal tunes pulled from Ennio Morricone soundtracks of the 70s – including a host of lovely female vocal numbers! The themes to Morricone scores are always quite strong – dreamy little numbers that dance along gracefully, often without any words on the original soundtracks ... CD
