Ennio Morricone - Frantic (1988)

Going beyond the 60's and 70's to fill a request for Albatroz. This is slightly more modern than most of the Morricone on this blog, but that's no reason to dismiss it. It's still got plenty of the Maestro's classic touches and is really an excellent soundtrack. Give it a shot.

More requests to be filled very soon...

01. I'm Gonna Lose You (04:05) Performed by Simply Red
02. Frantic (04:13)
03. On The Roofs Of Paris (06:07)
04. One Flugel Horn (03:24)
05. Six Short Interludes (04:34)
06. Nocturne For Michel (03:21)
07. In The Garage (04:17)
08. The Paris Project (03:22)
09. Sadly Nostalgic (01:55)
10. Frantic (06:04)

Lalo Schifrin - Bullitt (1968)

A recent request by "anonymous", this is the 2000 release of the exciting Schifrin soundtrack to the classic Steve McQueen film. Here's a little more about this release from Moviegrooves:

The Original Soundtrack to Bullitt (the actual music used in the movie) has never been released. The LP version that appeared back in the late 60's itself comprised of re-recorded versions - these versions were slightly more jazzy in order to appeal to a wider audience.

This CD contains re-recorded versions of the arrangements from the original Bullitt soundtrack LP which were recorded in 2000 by the WDR Big Band and conducted by Lalo Schifrin. It also contains re-recorded 'movie versions' of some of the tracks too. There's also a few previously unreleased cues; "Just Coffee", "Architect's Building" and a new arrangement of the main theme for jazz guitar. A superb set of tunes.

01. Main Title (03:05) (Movie Version)
02. Shifting Gears (03:12)
03. Ice Pick Mike (03:58) (Movie Version)
04. Cantata For Combo (02:51)
