Candy Dave Grusin ABC ABCS-OC-9, 1969
Candy album cover

Not that rare, but generally pretty expensive, this LP is collectable for a number of reasons. The album includes songs by The Byrds and Steppenwolf (plus instrumentals by Dave Grusin), a number of fat breakbeats, and the movie's stars included Ringo Starr, Marlon Brando and Richard Burton. So what about the soundtrack? Well, as you might expect, it's heavy on the guitar. Big, packed with 1960s beats and psychedelic voices, there are plenty of tight groovy instrumentals to keep a mod party jumping. Top track: 'Ascension To Virgninity'. Do we like? Yes we do!

Overall Rating: 4
