The Original and the Best

"This is the one you've been waiting for - the COMPLETE, ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK to the Steve McQueen film! Outstanding sound quality "newly mixed from 1/2", 3-track tapes stored at the (Warner) studio"! Not only that, but the disc also includes the score album by Schifrin - newly mixed from the 1" master tapes. The album is actually presented on the first 12 tracks of this CD. This disc is loaded with great sounds and I have many favorites from both versions, but I think my overall favorite on this disc just may be the film version of the main title (though the one from the album is great, too). Fascinating to explore comparisons between the various album versions and their OST counterparts. I was knocked out by the sound quality - every pulsing bassline, the crystal clarity of every edge-struck cymbal and the brassy bite, as well as throaty growl, of every swingin' horn is on full display here and, of course, the heady, Jazzy atmosphere and dazzling-yet-subtle shifts in rhythm are infinitely satisfying as well. Limited to a run of 3000 copies. I wouldn't be surprised if this long-sought-after title sells out relatively quickly - don't miss out! An excellent companion to another Schifrin "acid Jazz" classic: the OST for Dirty Harry (Aleph)."
Buy this version - it is the original

"This is the version of this soundtrack to get.
The soundtrack has been re-recorded and released in 2000 on Aleph records with Lalo Schifrin. It is good, but does not kick the way this original does. The original soundtrack score was never released, this release is the jazzier version for record release from 1968. The reason Lalo re-recorded this work in 2000 was to offer both the film version and the record vesion all on one CD. So buy the 2000 release if you are a die hard. But start with this 1968 release."
