"Roy Budd is a one-off great in the world of '70s film music. Serving his apprenticeship at 16 on the London jazz circuit and as a regular on 'Sunday Night At The London Palladium', he landed his first film score in 1970 for the native American Indian epic, Soldier Blue. But it was the follow-up a year later that planted Budd firmly on the cult soundtrack map, Mike Hodges' Get Carter. Led by its superb haunting, tabla-drenched theme, Budd's soundtrack was the perfect foil for Michael Caine's stylishly ruthless journey through the Yorkshire underworld. Budd went on to score over 50 films in his lifetime, effortlessly moving from complex military orchestral arrangements to tense, minimal pieces using some of the most contemporary technology of the time. Vigilante: Roy Budd Cult Film Soundtracks 1971-1977 collects together the best loved side of Budd -- the cool thriller scores that have become his trademark. Including several Michael Caine films (Get Carter, The Black Windmill, The Marseille Contract), blaxploitation star Richard Roundtree's cult favourite Diamonds, Charles Bronson's The Stone Killer and a handful of lesser known gems (Foxbat, The Intercine Project), this is Budd at his very best. For funky car chases, pin- sharp tension and classy loungecore, no one does it better. First ever comprehensive compilation of the cult funky detective/vigilante movie scores of one of the UK's greatest ever film composers. Includes new, exclusively commissioned remixes of Budd classics by Bobby Hughes Experience, Mitchell & Dewbury and Karminsky Experience. Compiled and annotated by '70s dance music aficionado and ex-Strut Records boss, Quinton Scott."
