1. Theme From The Thief Who Came To Dinner
2. Love Theme For Laura | Tail Gate
3. Jackie's Theme

6. Love Theme For Laura (Reprise)
7. First Job

10. Getaway
11. Theme From The Thief Who Came To Dinner
Ryan O'Neal starred in this early 70's heist movie scored by Henry Mancini. The album has a raw edge not present in his later 70's work. It features a good, edgy main theme and some reasonably groovy instrumentals.

This is probably my FAVORITE soundtrack of all time.
Top 5 at the least.
No breaks or heavy funk, but awesome mysterious slightly funky lounge grooves.......sweet keyboard textures, from organ and piano to analog synth and rhodes.....all atop a bed of strings and horns.
