Indeed... A very Happy 90th Birthday to one of the Top 10 Greatest Film Composers of All Time.
A truly unique and innovative talent... There is no one else quite like him... He is the "King of Cool".

...I could go on and on...
...And who else but Lalo Schifrin could make Jerry Goldsmith's already great Man from U.N.C.L.E. theme even better!
Sadly, there are SO MANY Schifrin scores that are STILL not yet released on CD (including some of the titles mentioned above)... What a absolute shame.
