Herbie Handcock - Death Wish (1974)

1. Death Wish (Main Title)
2. Joanna's Theme
3. Do A Thing
4. Paint Her Mouth
5. Rich Country
6. Suite Revenge: A.Striking Back, B. Riverside Park, C. The Alley, D. Last Stop, E. 8th Avenue Station
7. Ochoa Knose
8. Party People
9. Fill Your Hand
Herbie Hancock scored this, the first of the Death Wish series. An album at odds with the subject matter of the film, it's a contemplative soundtrack, the best moment being the long main theme. Not the most funky of Hancock's albums.
