Like if a Morricone and a Barry score had a baby and it came out like this. I have never heard of this score before, but it sounds like a real hidden treasure to me.

Time to resurrect some love for this score. Utterly unique, utterly amazing -- and, incidentally, utterly still available! There is a peculiar, engrossing quality to this music. I should really dig out the liner notes, but recommendations on other, similarly compelling Loussier works would be very welcome.

If you are receptive to watching French-language films from the early 1960s, then there is another Jacques Loussier score to admire: LIFE UPSIDE DOWN (LA VIE A L'ENVERS), the very first film of Alain Jessua, made in 1964.
I love this film so much, I've acquired the region 2 French DVD. It does not have any English subtitles, but that's OK by me since I own a subtitled print on VHS (connoisseur video) from the 1990s.
This film's about a real estate salesman who gradually withdraws into himself and his thoughts to the eventual neglect of all social responsibities...
...Loussier's music is at times jazzy, but always chamber-like, concluding with solo piano at film's end.

There's no soundtrack, except for a French EP on Decca; the only other soundtrack by Loussier that I'm aware of is London's 1969 LP "You Only Love Once".

Why isn't this cd listed on the main page of Screenarchives yet? Is it one of those hidden items for only the true soundtrack nerds?

Because it was released in early 2008 and is no longer a "new" release.

Wow, really? That completely slipped below my radar......still a great release though!

For you cover lovers, I did DARK OF THE SUN.

I love this cover!

As far as I can tell, the white spots/marks scattered around the title is intentional right?

For fans of this score and composer, I discovered this as a new release at the Naxos website:

Looks pretty cool!
