Superb easy listening/funk/soundtrack/jazz compilation that includes music from original Get Carter movie 1971, that was previously unreleased.
Music from a golden age of UK soundtrack recording (with a handful from the US) featuring artists whose music was used in shows such as 'The Sweeney'. High production values, depth and dimension aplenty in both the music and the musicianship, with plenty of soundtrack tension and groove.
Years later this still sounds fantastic and whisks you away to a London that i wish was still with us.
