Soundtrack Gamut, Vol. 3 - I Spy With My Little Eye

I probably should've called this compilation, 'The Usual Suspects', but it seems to me that name's already taken in the soundtrack world. Well, you can read the long and boring story of the evolution of this compilation under the Soundtrack Gamut, Vol. 2 post, and if you want Volume 1 (yeah, right!), it's here.

In past compilations, I usually tried to avoid the more familiar tracks, I guess because I've heard them a lot already and I figure you have too, but sometimes it just seems silly to avoid them when they're so good, so when it came time to pick things that fit the spy criteria, I just said, 'forget it' and put on a lot of the 'usual suspects' (though sometimes I tried to use different versions). I've often been tempted to make up a spy compilation (not for the blog, but over the years, just for my own listening), but I never do it because I can't figure out how to make it different from the thousands of other comps out there. The only way I ever felt tempted to do it was to do a really comprehensive one that included all the tracks from my collection that fit, but whenever I thought about doing it, it just seemed too massive so I've never done it. Can you imagine pulling together every spy-related track that you have? I get exhausted just thinking about it.

So, that's why I've never made one up. And I never would've made this one up either if it weren't for the long and boring explanation I spun in the Volume 2 post above. Still, I think it turned out nicely (though you have to leave out so much good material if you ever want the compilation to end).

I also cheated a bit when I included Dan & Dale's track since it wasn't from a soundtrack (though it was from their 'Thunderball' album). I only realized it after the comp was done and it fit pretty well, so I left it in. Also, some people may want a couple of the Lal* Sch|frin tracks that may not be all that available elsewhere. That was the genesis for the whole compilation, in fact. I was just trying to use some things people had requested (since 'Omega' from 'Even More Stuff For Wasting Time' had requested some unreleased Lal*, and other people on the planet seem to share our mutual love of Mr. Sch|frin.), and it mushroomed into this. Well, I hope you enjoy this comp, 'Omega' (and don't worry, Jordan, Vol. 4 has the Sch|frin main title you asked for (whenever I get that one done!)) and at the very least, hopefully somebody else besides me will like this compilation.

I also wanted to thank anybody I might've gotten various tracks from including 'Rocket From Mars' (thanks buddy, for the 'Spy Who Came in from the Cold' track.....such a nice rip!), 'Isbum' (another tip of the hat to you, brother, for the 'Ipcress File' track), 'MisterLesterKeen' (go to his blog for great stuff!....I hope those links are still good!), 'Endless Mike' (ditto for him, but I haven't been able to visit lately, so I don't know what his posting status is right now), & Scorebaby Annex (ditto on the ditto, as well.....thanks for the Murderer's Row track!).


P.S. Well, I would've normally told you to go to Licorice Pizza for other excellent spy compilations, but Timbo's great blog has gone private since I first started writing this post. Timbo's too much of a gentleman to say it, but I feel compelled to play a game of charades. Four words. Second word is 'you'. Last word is 'Trolly'. Third word is 'Jazz'. First word is 'Screw'. Now, how about a game of Pictionary? (Anybody know how to draw a picture of a finger?)

Now that I think about it, I should dedicate this post to Timbo. I salute you, buddy! I hope I get a chance to go over there and join the (private) fun!......All material is copywronged! :))

Actually, come to think of it, you may still be able to get his great spy (& so many other) compilations over there, so go there posthaste! Well, you can download this comp first if you want.

There's only one thing I like more than a compilation: more compilations and bigger compilations.
Thanks for the memories.
HUSTON... I think we have a problem- Maybe Megaload is having some problems at their end???

My ears though are itch'n to listen to it... nice job (information-wise) and selection!!

'M back checking out your site and STILL LUV YAH,

Magnificent compilation.
Better than any store cd ever offered.
There is a vacuum in music and your hard work fills that void.

Thank Vince
Nomwl1, Sorry to hear about your issues and to read the rubbish above. My sincerest regrets for the BS here. Just like the real world, maybe even uglier because everyone is faceless here.

Wanted to thank you for these great comps of spy tunes. Loved every note of it.

Stay in touch if you decide to get out of the blog scene. You are one of the truly great bloggers in my book and really do hate to see this going on here.

Excellent, but I'm not able to extract all the tracks. I get a message saying "system can't find path".

I tried both the Megaupload and RS versions.
Excellent work! Thanks a bunch for sharing!
guten tag;
thank you for the fine mix. i have many of these tunes already, but they take on greater meaning with the aid of your mixing hands!
san pedro
ps i also learned how to use .rar extraction on the fly with your mix as an incentive.
Great comp - thanks.
Interesting post as for me. I'd like to read more concerning that matter. The only thing I would like to see on that blog is a few photos of such gizmos as gps blocker.
