Lalo Schifrin – Scorpio’s View

Schifrin’s soundtrack for the 1971 film ‘Dirty Harry’ undoubtedly added significantly to the films classic status (does anyone dispute the importance of a films soundtrack anyway?). Atonal elements rub up against funky drumming and the eerily ethereal vocals of Sally Stevens; eventually raping it up with nasty, fuzzy bass buzzing around the urgency of the drums. Fantastic work, and one can hear a strong influence from Schifrin in J.G. Thirlwell’s post noughties work.
