Theme From Medical Center Lalo Schifrin Verve VK-10659, 1970
Theme From Medical Center album cover

How come there are two listings for Medical Centre here? Simple. There are two massively different versions, the original for Verve (on 45 only) and the re-recording for MGM (on a scarce Schifrin compilation). And which one's better? Hard to say. This one's a real bomb - huge drums, very uptempo, massive fuzz/wah guitar and a wicked organ make up a superb version of the theme. The LP mix is marginally mellower, and loses the guitar, but this 45 is the dancefloor one to have. Look out for several incarnations of this 45 with different flips.

Overall Rating: 4
