Up The Down Staircase Fred Karlin United Artists UAS 5169, 1967
Up The Down Staircase album cover

Fred Karlin has been a consistently funky soundtrack composer since the early 60s. This album is a hard one to find, and fits exactly with our expectations. It's a really strong 60s groovy album, with plenty to keep the beat freak happy. Apparently from a school movie, look out for the outstanding groovers 'You're hip, Miss Pastorfield' (and it sure sounds like she is!) and The GO Glide. Fuzz guitar, chunky bass, snappy drums and groovy sax predominate. Highly recommended.

Overall Rating: 4
