Just a matter of time before I tracked it down, one of those holes in the collection that just hasn’t filled until now. Amoeba gold, again.
Sonny Rollins With Orchestra Conducted By Oliver Nelson – Original Music From The Score “Alfie”
Impulse! – AS-9111
Vinyl LP, Stereo, Gatefold
BA-BOOM! The biggest hole in my Sonny Rollins collection has just been filled. Pretty certain I’ll still pick up a mono copy if I ever see one, but this original stereo pressing couldn’t sound much better.
The wall of orange and black just got much more awesome. Essential Sonny.
Sonny Rollins – Alfie’s Theme
Herbie Hancock – The Spook Who Sat By The Door
United Artists Records – UAR-7370
Vinyl LP, Unofficial Release
Never released, soundtrack taken from 1973 Movie of the same name. It sounds horrible just like I knew it would but it’s the only option available right now. Maybe one of the numerous soundtrack labels can finally give this missing piece of Herbie Hancock’s discography a proper reissue; can’t get any muddier than this Scorpio pressing.
