Happy Ending

LP, Vinyl record album


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.

Barry conducts versions of his famous soundtrack themes from the 60s – as you'd guess from the title – taking them in different directions than on the original recordings, and coming up with some nice moody readings that show the direction he was heading in the late 60s.
