Heist films always provided some of the best soundtracks of the 70's, and this one (starring Robert Shaw and Richard Roundtree, and issued in the US as Diamond Shaft) is no exception! Roy Budd rises to the groovy occasion and scores some excellent moments that match a light orchestral sound with a throbbing electric bass and percussion underground – in a style that's like Lalo Schifrin's best work from the time. The LP's overflowing with tracks, including a few bonus mixes, and there's even 2 vocal numbers that feature The Three Degrees. Titles include "The Thief", "Beauty & The Bass", "Diamonds", "Party Piece", "Thief On the Prowl", and more! Nice notes, and some nicely funky crime themes, too! Nice gatefold cover, too!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Cinevox (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the wildest 70s soundtracks by the Italian horror genius group Goblin – filled with a lot of weird distorted electronics, strangely recorded percussion, and oddly-tuned guitar parts and basslines!
