Sealed 1968 Original Soundtrack. Small Brass Ring, Top Left. Seam Split On Spine, Hence Price. After Establishing Himself In The Television World With The Classic Mission: Impossible Theme, Lalo Schifrin Soon Made Himself Equally Famous In The World Of Film Music With His Work On The Soundtrack Of The Steve McQueen Cop Thriller Bullitt. This Classic Soundtrack Found Schifrin Combining The Skills He Honed As An Arranger For Jazzmen Like Count Basie With The Gift He Developed For Writing Tight, Punchy Themes On Television Soundtracks Like The Man From U.N.C.L.E. And Mission: Impossible. The End Result Is An Exciting Score That Deftly Blends Traditional Orchestral Film-Scoring Techniques With The Rhythms And Swings Of Classic Jazz. This Combination Is Perfectly Presented On "Bullitt (Main Title)," A Jazz-Pop Instrumental That Starts With An Angular, Staccato Bassline And Quickly Layers On Jazz Guitar And Controlled Bursts Of Brass To Create A Tune That Swings And Thrills All At Once. Other Gems In This Vein Include "Shifting Gears," Which Adds And Subtracts Layers Of Dissonant Strings And Brass Over An Insistent, Percolating Groove From The Rhythm Section, And "Ice Pick Mike," A Chase Theme That Builds From Piano And Percussion To A Full-Blown Jazz Instrumental Complete With A Wild Horn Section. Everything On The Album Is Visually Evocative The Way Good Soundtrack Music Should Be, Yet The Individual Cuts Are Tight And Melodic Enough To Hold Up To Repeated Listens. The End Result Is A Soundtrack That Succeeds Both As A Film Score And A Stand-Alone Album. This Unique Combination Makes Bullitt One Of The Finest Achievements In The Lalo Schifrin Catalog And One Of The Best Action Film Scores Ever Written. - Donald A. Guarisco, All Music Guide
