Italian Job, The Quincy Jones Paramount PAS 5007, 1969
Italian Job, The album cover

The classic soundtrack to the cult film featuring Michael Caine and Noel Coward on top form. Quincy Jones plays with jazz, 60's pop, easy listening and funk in a mixed-up, joyful score tinged with darker moments. British ears will know "Getta Bloomin' Move On", source of the 'Self Preservation Society' lyric, while funk fans will pick out the great instrumental "Caper Time".

Overall Rating: 5
