Diamonds (2x7")

Label: Dynamite Cuts

Format: 2x7"

Genre: Library/Soundtracks

In process of stocking


Six cuts taken from this incredible 1975 soundtrack, the soundtrack to an adventure film set in Israel, is one of the finest in Roy Budd's catalog. Diamonds is a memorable soundtrack because it presents Roy Budd's unique combination of jazz, soul, and orchestral styles at its most catchy and innovative. Fans of funky soundtracks will love this album because it overflows with intense rhythms. "The Thief" layers suspenseful strings and heavy brass over a thick bassline that is pushed along by tight, relentless drum work. Suspenseful moments like these are offset by some easy listening-styled cues built on lush arrangements and mellow keyboard sounds. All these diverse moods and styles are held together nicely by Budd's arrangements, which carefully weave familiar themes throughout the cues to keep the music unified. In short, Diamonds is one of Roy Budd's most impressive achievements and a fine introduction to his style
