Boulevard Nights Lalo Schifrin Warner Brothers BSK 3328, 1979
Boulevard Nights album cover

While this LP is certainly one of Schifrin's less critically-acclaimed scores, that's not to say it doesn't have its moments. It's mostly a very late 70s disco or jazz-funk album, a little too over-produced and cheesy (one number features George Benson so you can see the direction it takes), with too many horrible disco vocals. There is one excellent midtempo latin-flavoured flute funk track, the mellow 'Chuco'. Since this is always a cheap LP, buy it for that track and you'll be pleased with the result.

Overall Rating: 3

Track listing:

Street tattoo | Dimelo | On the boulevard | Take another chance | Chile caliente | Chuco | Boulevard nights | Dolor | Last act |
