Soundtrack Ratings







The Stripper And Nick Quarry


An early effort features a light Jazz flavoured score for a minor 60's relationships drama. A few years short of the Goldsmith trademark scoring style we know and love and probably more influenced by mentor Alex North. However, its gentle melodic style remains listenable throughout mixing nicely with the quaint stage show acts. Notable for being the first big screen collaboration between Goldsmith and friend, Franklin J Schaffner, FSM's quality package includes a very good stereo source highlighting complete score, source music and two alternate score cuts. Partnered by the intriguing and completely unknown Goldsmith work; Nick Quarry. This turns out to be a 10 minute demo reel for a proposed TV series based on the Tony Rome PI movies. Musically it plays like the Flint scores and makes a good partner to The Stripper. An undemanding but entertaining CD.

Expanded review to follow.
