The Girl From UNCLE  performed by Teddy Randazzo  1966
Recommended by andyjl [profile]

Instrumental version of the US spy series with a widely sampled intro. Breezy melody carried by sax, strings and ‘do-do-do’ wordless vocals. Mood music by which to follow the planes I see from my apartment window, heading towards London’s main airport on summer evenings.


available on CD - Espresso Espresso



  24 Jan 03 ·konsu: Yeah! Just amazing stuff, huh? The entire LP is a masterpiece of banging soundtrack wizardry, Totally worth pursuing. Someone better bootleg this or i'm gonna do it!
  24 Jan 03 ·delicado: I agree, this is a great track. Dimitri from Paris seems to have helped himself to plenty of chunks from the album, as well as this song (for 'une very stylish fille'). Incredibly, the LP can be had for around $10 on ebay, and is well worth it.
Town I Live In  performed by Jackie Lee  1966
Recommended by andyjl [profile]

From the singer better-known for the TV theme, White Horses, a fast-paced beat-girl song with a cynical edge about living in a dreary place where “nothing very much ever happens”. Surely one of the few uses of “Etc etc” as part of a chorus.


available on CD - Dream Babes: Vol One


Richmond Bridge  performed by I Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni  1966
Recommended by andyjl [profile]

Soaring choral evocation of a cold bright day on a busy river. From Piero Piccioni’s soundtrack to a Swinging London exploitation film in which an Italian eccentric encounters bikers, fox hunters and a haunted castle.


available on CD - Fuma Di Londra
