The Connection (aka La French): Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - Various Artists on 180g LP
Known to some as La French, the epic crime drama The Connection is the critically acclaimed and stylish ‘70s-period crime thriller inspired by true events. Mondo is absolutely thrilled to be releasing this absolute beast of a soundtrack; the ultimate cool compilation spanning four decades and featuring classic songs by The Velvet Underground, Blondie, and Townes Van Zandt...it's hard to pick out highlights as there genuinely isn't a bad track here.
The Max Richter / Dinah Washington – an incredible mix of Washington's vocals from "This Bitter Earth" and Richter's incredible composition "On The Nature of Daylight" – is worth the price of admission alone. Lykke Li contributes "Jerome," a fantastic '60s tinged pop song that sounds like a lost Phil Spector composition. On top of all that, add in a selection of incredible French pop – imagine if Starlord's Awesome Mix: Volume 1 had a European counterpart, it would be this album.
