The soundtrack to The Italian Job by Quincy Jones has been reissued from today on limited edition vinyl via Universal.
That’s probably the selling point here – it’s on vinyl. But it’s not the only appeal. The album has ‘upgraded art’ (which looks like the original album art reinstated) and has new notes from Johnny Trunk too. Other than that, it’s the music you probably know backwards from the movie, everything from the crooning of Matt Monro with On Days Like These through to the iconic Self Preservation Society.
It pretty much sells itself. As we said, available on vinyl from today for £20.99. Obviously the old CD edition is still available if you prefer that.
