From 1966, we get some good stuff composed by legendary jazz saxophonist Sir John Dankworth. I had only really known his work from the early series’ of the Avengers (the pre-Peel era episodes). Good mix of tracks: You get some jazzy ones, some swinging stuff, some rocking songs, even one of those cheesy vocal tracks where the don’t use words. Cleo Laine (Dankworth’s wife) sings on a couple tracks, though only credited on the first one which doesn’t actually appear in the film! Not sure if the film is any good (despite staring an Academy Award winning actress) but the music’s fun to listen to!
