4.60 12

A slice of genius from Michel Legrand – one of his brilliant late 60s soundtracks, not as well remembered as, but cut during the same period as The Thomas Crown Affair. The soundtrack is probably best remembered for the incredible theme "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life" – sung here in 2 versions by Michael Dees, and also served up in a nice instrumental take as well. But overall, the whole record is pretty darn great – not as out and out groovy as some of Legrand's other work, but with a great mix of moody, jazzy, and atmospheric – handled with some really great instrumental touches that are all Legrand, all the way! Titles include "Smooth Sailing", "Collage", "Diamonds Are Forever", "Floating Time", "Hurry Up N Hurry Down", and "Whistle While You Swing". (Original pressing. Cover has a small cut corner.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good
A great little soundtrack from Michel Legrand – an early American effort, done for a less-remembered Dean Martin film! The title track features vocals from the Ray Conniff singers, who sweeten up Legrand's sound a bit more than usual – but other tracks are instrumentals, and have a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Seven Golden Men
United Artists, Mid 60s. Sealed
One of the best-ever euro soundtracks on United Artists! Lots of great Italian sixties scoring by Armando Trovajoli, with lots of jazzy crime music (this is a heist movie, apparently), and really cool Swingle Singers-sounding vocals by a group called I.Cantori Moderni. The sound is great, very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Here's a groovy one – the swinging mod soundtrack to Up The Down Staircase, a cool late 60s JD film that starred the lovely Sandy Dennis!

Leroy Holmes and orchestra lay down some very groovy instrumental readings of tracks from "new provocative" films from the late 60s – including ones that were Euro trash and American sexploitation flicks, both masquerading under art house guises. Nice moments include Leroy's ... LP, Vinyl record album

The first James Bond soundtrack – pre-John Barry, but already showing Bond music as a genre unto itself! Monty Norman handles the music – and brings together some cool Caribbean sounds with familiar jazz riffs – a blend that showcases the Jamaican setting of the main narrative, ...

Goldfinger
United Artists, 1964. Very Good-
The soundtrack that put John Barry over the top – and to many, THE James Bond soundtrack! The album chills from the first notes of the haunting title theme – the majestic "Goldfinger", sung by Shirley Bassey with a tone that's as dangerous as a razor-sharp hat spinning ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fortune Cookie
United Artists, 1966. Near Mint-
A pretty nice Andre Previn soundtrack for this late Billy Wilder film that starred Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau – plus the young Judi West, who sings a version of "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" on the album. The rest of the tracks are split pretty evenly between light jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album

ABC/Dunhill, Late 60s. Near Mint-
An obscure soundtrack from Swedish jazzer Bengt Arne Wallin – done with lots of dark and modern touches!
