The At The Movies department has two new releases this week. Starting off with a coloured edition of one of the biggest cult classic albums, its the soundtrack to Reservoir Dogs. These 'Super Sounds Of The Seventies' are now available on limited edition bleeding red vinyl.

The album Charade is a must-have soundtrack by one of the world's best composers Henry Mancini. Director Stanley Donen needed a strong melody in the background for its mystery thriller. He asked Mancini who made this album into a real masterpiece. The first pressing is only a small amount of numbered copies on red vinyl!

Enjoy your weekend.

ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK - RESERVOIR DOGS  (GEORGE BAKER, STEALERS WHEEL, HARRY NILSSON A.O.)

The 'Super Sounds Of The Seventies' is a selection of seminal and sometimes wacky hits by artists such as Stealers Wheel, Harry Nilsson and Joe Tex. The movie also raised public interest in the Dutch band George Baker Selection, due to the use of his "Little Green Bag" in the film's opening titles.

SOMI - PETITE AFRIQUE
Somi's new album Petite Afrique is a song cycle inspired by the vibrant African immigrant community that has become a vital part of Harlem's cultural dimension – and to New York City as a whole. The historic uptown neighborhood fondly boasts of West 116th Street as "Little Africa", where passers-by can find ornate traditional fabrics, Francophone bibles, palm oil and tribes of fast-fingered hair braiders, or the city's best Senegalese fare.

OST - CHARADE (HENRY MANCINI)
Film director Stanley Donen had been charmed by Henry Mancini's song "Baby Elephant Walk" from the film Hatari!, so he contacted Mancini from London to tell him about his current picture. Donen had directed several famous musical films throughout the 1950s and he now intended to put his own slant on a Hitchcock-like thriller and he wanted a strong melody in the background score.

The title track "Charade" is a sad, lonely Parisian waltz. It was nominated that year for the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
