La Piscina Michel Legrand United Artists UA 3159, 1970
La Piscina album cover

Taken from one of Legrand's lesser-known but most beautiful scores, this excellent two-track Italian EP features two superb vocal cuts from the Jacques Deray movie. The main track on here is a lovely downtempo mellow vocal number sung by the sublime Sally Phillips, called 'Ask Yourself Why'. Wistful, autumnal and haunting, it's backed by a lovely mellow organ groove and has since been covered by the likes of Barbra Streisand (but don't let that put you off). The flip side is a complete change in pace, as it's a great dancefloor-oriented uptempo male vocal track called 'Run, Brother Rabbit, Run' with a wicked snappy 60s beat and some killer Hammond work by Legrand - what's more, it's never been comped or reissued so this is practically the only way to get it. Highly recommended - a very tough-to-find but fantastic two-sider with a smart late 60s groove.

Overall Rating: 4
