Midnight Cowboy (1969)

John Barry 

Released in:

Story Of Naive Hayseed And Conniving New York Street Bum Set To The Sounds Of Famed Composer!
by a soundtrack collector (March 22, 2006)
From the novel by James Leo Herlihy comes the film adaptation of Midnight Cowboy directed by John Schlesinger. The sad and funny story of a gullible hayseed Texan who travels to New York City in order to become a gigolo but instead experiences a rude awakening at the hands of a street wise crippled bum named Ratso!

An all around classic in film making featuring a main title song composed by Fred Neil and performed by Harry Nielson the recording offered from the soundtrack gained mega-popularity and stayed in print long after the films original run.

Several examples of LSD inspired psychedelic dope music blend perfectly with the John Barry score. The overall experience is one of peculiar bliss.

The song (Everybodies Talkin') written several years before the production of the film and originally performed by the legendary Fred Neil gained new found fame by way of countless versions by everyone from Ferrante and Teicher to Bing Crosby!

Also known as Asphalt Cowboy (German LP pressing) the entire production is yet another proud moment in the history of exceptional film making!

Barry and Schlesinger go to New York.

One of the 60s classic soundtracks, now available on CD. Everyone knows the memorable Nilsson hit "Everybody's Talkin'", it just gets better with age. The rest of the album is an eclectic mix of psychedelic funky rock "Jungle Gym At The Zoo", funky soul "He Quit Me", jazz "Fun City", and the classic main theme. If you don't have this album already, you should have. For the 60s and 70s soundtrack collectors--essential listening.
