Out of stock

Wewantsounds is reissuing for Record Store Day one of Michel Legrand's best soundtracks composed for Jacques Deray's film La Piscine, released in 1969.  The complete soundtrack was only released in Japan at the time and is now very rare. This reissue comes with three bonus tracks, the opening credits as well as two superb variations of the main theme in the form of "Chassé-Croisé" with Eddy Louiss's Hammond organ and the languid "Une Enquête", an inspired dialogue between Stéphane Grappelli's violin and a vibraphone. The whole thing has recently been remastered and presented in a gatefold sleeve designed by Eric Adrian Lee. For Record Store Day, the release is complemented by the very funky 45T from another collaboration between Legrand and Deray, for the 1972 film Un Homme Est Mort. The soundtrack was only released as a single in France at the time and has become a much sought after nugget on the jazz funk scene. The 45T is reissued here in its original sleeve. Two superb soundtracks from the Michel Legrand era!
