"I rarely ever like film score 'covers', but this one is a cut above, with the exception of this terrible deformation of Donaggio's great 1984 "Body Double" theme, wrongly married here to a arrangement of "Double Idemnity". A concept they should have lost. The only treatment of Donaggio's weird Eurodisco-Minnie Mouse-doing-a-striptease that COULD ever really work is Signore Donaggio's. I put that jam on a single CD and sometimes just let it play for hours until I am in an Italian trance state. One wishes Signore would do some more of that kind of modern music, as much as I enjoyed his more conventional scores like "Don't Look Now."Good picks: 'Chinatown', Herrmann's great 'Taxi Driver', even Mike Small's hard to find 'Klute'... from that long gone decade when cinema was film, not moving wallpaper assembly-manufactured by a bunch of MBAs in goofy eyeglasses slumming in that California desert.A pity no one covered John Williams and Yamash'tas strange "Images" from 1970... would have fot great in this series! But then, COlumbia went and lost the entire darn film negative!"
