Bullitt: New Recordings is a newer version of the soundtrack to the Steve McQueen vehicle of the same name. On this version, the music from the original has been re-recorded and paired with music that has been inspired by the film. This is not significantly different from the first available version, but fans of the original soundtrack may not enjoy the remakes.
- Disappointed :(
I'm a pretty big Lalo Schiffrin fan, and have used iTunes without regret for a decent while, but this was the first time I've been disappointed.. Where, for example, the Dirty Harry soundtrack appears to be the genuine music recorded for the film, this album feels like it was recorded decades later with inferior recording equipment. The atmosphere and audio effects ( notably the echoes after the trumpets on the authentic main titles ), seem to have been lost - the Charm of the 60's sound is gone, I think.. In terms of tone it sounds much closer to the 'Payback' score - modern but retro.. But, the quality is just lacking - when the bass gets enthusiastic, it appears to "bleed" a lot, breaking up often.. "Cantata for Combo" is a perfect example, and "on the way to San Mateo" - the bass bleed is present for most of the track, even on the free sample. (I've listened through a variety of headphones/earphones/speakers, and found this issue to be common to all - to eliminate the possibility of poor speakers.. ) The iTunes track-samples don't explain enough in this album's case i feel, and compared to other soundtracks of the same price, it just doesn't sound authentic, OR worth the money.
As was the case in a lot of movies from the 60's,the version heard on the soundtrack and the version released on a Soundtrack LP/CD can differ a lot. Usually they're recorded with different musicians or a reduced orchestra. Film Score Monthly have released an expanded version of the Bullitt soundtrack (Dec 2009) which contains this version but also the original soundtrack recording ,cleaned up and exactly as it's heard in the movie . Some tracks are nearly identical, but others such as the Main title are different and in my opinion superior slowed down and with the haunting flute echo. The soundtrack is a classic and can stand umpteen versions.
Great 4 the car
Atmospheric, 60's esque cool. Put on the suede jacket and the turtleneck jumper and drive about - as Sheryl Crow says - like Steve Mcqueen with an ipod !!
