Clint Eastwood, Robert Flack, (Fin)

If you remember, Roberta Flack began her professional career recording for Atlantic Records without much success, at least not until one of her earliest recordings, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face (1969), was included on the soundtrack to Clint Eastwood’s directorial debut Play Misty for Me.  The song became a #1 hit back in 1972.  I do remember the song, but have to admit I was not a real Clint Eastwood fan... but I was only 15 years old!

You could say the rest is history, but that would be an understatement.

If ever there was a must have recommendation, this CD would have to be one to consider.  Here is a quick description:  Produced as a companion piece to our best-selling 25th Anniversary set, there is no duplication here. For our 30th anniversary we look back at our greatest releases over the last five years. And being most prolific film music record label in the world, that meant we had over 250 soundtracks to choose from! 

A few months ago I ran across a government site of interest.  For those who did not know the Library of Congress catalogs Jazz/Film  It is worth the visit.

Hope all is well and all remember Jazz in film/film on Jazz for important findings.
