Classic kitschy biker material from Davie Allan and The Arrows – one of the best-ever groups to play on schlocky soundtracks during the 60s!

One of Burt Bacharach's finest moments, and a soundtrack that we never tire of hearing!

Barbarian ... LP American International/So Far Out (UK), 1960. Near Mint- (reissue)...

One of the greatest jazz soundtracks of all time!

A nice little Georges Delerue score to this quirky and sentimental film from the mid 60s.
