Rare music composed by Maurice Jarre – done relatively early in his career of work for feature films, but also some of his best! The album features new recordings of music from four early 60s movies – Pleins Feux Sur L'Assassin, Les Dimanches De Ville D'Avray, Judex, and Les Animaux – all Jarre music that was never issued on older soundtrack albums – which makes this collection even more essential! The recording is quite faithful to the spirit of older soundtrack music – nothing too contemporary at all, which means that all the tracks here definitely feel as if they were lifted from early 60s films – although with arguably better sound overall. The package features full notes in English and French – and the depth of Jarre's music is wonderful – far past what we might have expected from his bigger hits of later years.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Cops & Robbers
MGM/Kritzerland, 1973. New Copy
Wonderful lost work from Michel Legrand – a fantastic, and fantastically overlooked, 70s soundtrack – completely essential to have in a CD version like this, since most of the music hardly appeared in the film at all! The score takes off nicely from some of Legrand's more famous work ... CD

Secret Stash, 1969/1970. New Copy
Not "lost tapes" – more "long overdue tapes" – as they finally give us a full picture of this legendary funk band from Milwaukee! Vic Pitts got his start in the Seven Sounds with Harvey Scales – but at the time of these recordings, he'd broken off to form his ... CD
