Reissue of long lost score from 1968 by John Barry, one of the six movies he did with Bryan Forbes. The music is tense, yet romantic, like a '60s Bond score crossed with 'Body Heat'. The title cut is by Shirley Bassey and the CD features two previously unheard tracks, an instrumental demo and one with male vocals. Eight tracks total. 1997 release.
One Track : Romance for Guitar and Orchestra. A Masterpiece!

"If you found this title you probably are a film student, a musician, or took "Movie Soundtrack" at SJU(NY). There is only one reason to buy this soundtrack : the exquisite track : Romance for Guitar and Orchestra. A dramatic and romatic classical composition with accompaniment by a Guitar Solist. The female solist adds a definitely Spanish spin to the techinally dificult and emotional guitar parts. The final result is spanish guitar set to an classical piece. That's why you should buy it! Definate make-out music! ;) The piece was prefaced by a mood setting tuning of the orchestra and guitar, which is ommitted from this soundtrack. Never-the-less, the piece retains much power. The video seems impossible to find... Romance for guitar was the center piece of the DEADFALL. The victims attend a concert perfance as Micheal Caine, a cat-burglary, robs thier home. Similar to the baptism scence interspaced with gang slayings of GODFATHER. Thanxs to the professor who introduced me to this piece."

"Being an avid John Barry fan I've been collecting his Soundtracks for years. Deadfall is one of those soundtracks that one appreciates more if you've seen the movie. Romance for guitar and orchestra, for example, takes one back to both the symphonie hall and the house where the robbery takes place. The CD version has added vocal tracks by Shirley Bassey and an uncredited male singer. I highly recommend this 1997 reissue by Retrograde Records!
Approximate running time is 41 minutes."
I second the above

"I took the movie sound track class at SJU almost 3 years ago and I still found myself thinking about the guitar solo, so I finally looked it up online. I only remember a few things from that class, but this is definitely one of the highlights."
