Bullitt: New Recordings is a newer version of the soundtrack to the Steve McQueen vehicle of the same name.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.
One of the truly great soundtracks of the "60s". Shifting Gears accompanied the first and still very best automobile chases of all time. Jazz sequences typical of the era.
Cool as McQueen. Powerful as a '68 Mustang.
Even without the iconic movie this would be an incredible album. Ignored or lost for years as simply an artifact for movie buffs and Mustang freaks, this album takes the listener on a journey through Frank Bullitt's world where something evil lives around every corner, and the combination of moral certaintude and ambivelence required to deal with it every day. Some of the tracks feel lost outside the context of the picture and charachters; some live joyfully as seminal examples of acid jazz. It helps if you are a fan of the movie. But after listening to this even if you're not, you will be. True fans will want to search out the version available on Amazon.com, which features a great ensemble band of acid jazzbo's playing Schifrin's original charts in multi-track digital. The difference in clarity and presence is remarkable. (The original mono tracks are still preserved for enjoyment and comparison. (IMHO, well worth the extra few bucks.) Oh, and rent or download the movie. Before the studio schlockmeisters turned the action drama film into a parade of special effects interrupted with sex scenes, this is how it was done, and frankly the modern so-called film makers couldn't match it at gunpoint. It is spare, powerful, compelling and authentic, one of the best of the genre. Pray that it is never ruined with a sequel...
Great Record - But there's a caveat;
.. these aren't the original recordings. Still worth every penny, though. The songs and arrangements are brilliant and the production still feels like a classic session from the 60s. Just wish I had the option to buy the original recordings.
