La Permission Melvin Van Peebles Disc AZ EP 1152, 1968
La Permission album cover

A quick cinema history lesson: Van Peebles couldn't get a movie job in the USA due to race issues, so he went to France, wrote a novel to qualify for filmmaker rights, then directed his first feature (aka. Story Of A 3 Day Pass) in France. Cue critical acclaim (both abroad and in the USA) and, eventually, a job in Hollywood. Anyway, this is the original soundtrack, only issued on 4 track EP in France. And it's a cracker! Two strong funky jazz cuts on here, one party number, and one superb Moogy organ cut in the theme. Highly recommended, top drawer stuff.

Overall Rating: 4

Track listing:

Hard Times | Wild Party | Spanish Dream | Theme de La Permission | Generique de La Permission |
