Out of print in the U.S.! Originally released in 1980, the American Gigolo soundtrack, composed by legendary producer Giorgio Moroder, is best remembered for Blondie's hugely successful single 'Call Me' (which was not available on any of their albums, apart from compilations). The soundtrack's mastermind, Moroder, was ably assisted by Harold Faltermeyer and Keith Forsey, who both would go on to great success as producers and writers on their own (Faltermeyer's 'Axel F Theme' being the most significant). While the movie was a huge success, this soundtrack has taken on a life of it's own over the three decades since it's original release. Eight tracks.

Cheesy film but great soundtrack

"Richard Gere's coming out party featured a nude scene in this 1980 movie that was pretty cheesy but featured a fabulous soundtrack. Producer-composer Giorgio Moroder put together great topical sounds -- like Blondie's "Call Me" -- with his ripoffs of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto slow movement and other composers to create an aura of eroticism and mystery suitable to the moments portrayed in this flick.
It seems inconprehensible to me there is only one review of this wonderful soundtrack on Amazon. People that like film music should at least listen to the sound bytes and, more likely, invest the tiny amount asked for Moroder's production. The music gave the movie a film noir element that increases its credibility. Dont' hestiate if you like music from the movies."
