My copy of Lalo Schifrin‘s ‘Insensatez’ (an ebay bargain) arrived this morning. It’s a 1969 reissue of his ‘piano, strings and bossa nova’ bossa/orchestral album from 1962. I know this after consulting Doug Payne’s site. If it wasn’t for Doug’s excellent discography, I would have bought a copy of the original ‘piano, strings…’ LP this morning; I didn’t realize they were the same album! Anyway, I’m looking forward to hearing it – a couple of tracks featured on the German motor music ‘Mission Impossible and More’ compilation are excellent.
Doug’s site is really excellent – he writes liner notes for actual reissues, some of which are duplicated on his site; he also does meticulous discography research, covering interesting subjects like Roy Budd, Gary MacFarland, Shirley Scott, and the A&M; 3000 series (the ones with the insanely cool gatefold covers).
