  • John Keating

    Found a Keating LP today that's new to me, & quite different from his other early work, the OST of a 1967 movie called 'Robbery' (on London Records) based on the Great train robbery (directed by Peter Yates, with the likes of Frank Finlay, Barry Foster & Stanley Baker - how British can you get?). Pretty good it is, too: a nice cheesy intro song (Born To Lose, sung by Jackie Lee), lots of incidental 'suspense' bits, a very cool, Quincy Jones style big band crime jazzer ('Breaking Into the Mail Van') and a track that segues from sultry to suspense ('Gang's Arrest'). Too early for the funk, but pointing the way directly to what was to come: anyone else come across this? Never heard of it till I found it, & google turns up stuff on the movie, but not its OST...

    Is yours U.S.? The UK issue is on Decca. Record Collector price = £15 (maybe £20 these days...) Doesn't turn up much though - great film too.
    We know when a mate buys it for you too.

      Looks like US pressing: address is London Records, NY, & it seems there are both mono & stereo pressings with separate catalogue numbers (mine's stereo). Nice one to find, but a surprise as I wasn't aware Keating had OSTs as well as the other stuff under his belt: have to try & see the movie now, too...gotta be better than Buster!

        That's got some really good stuff on it.
        I used to play it on my show.
        Great record
