This double-disc special edition soundtrack summarizes everything that made Mike Hodges' groundbreaking 70's revenge film a cult classic. This soundtrack is mandatory for any fan of the film or of talented composer Roy Budd whose haunting theme is highlighted throughout the album with dialogue samples from the film selectively placed between music cues capturing the gritty atmosphere of Michael Cain's uber-cool Jack Carter. In addition, this album includes a bonus remix CD featuring 10 tracks remixed by some of the most talented techno DJ's world wide and take Roy Budd's main theme to a new level, eclipsing Tyler Bates electronic reworking for the disappointing Stallone remake. This special edition import CD is beautifully packaged in a glossy gatefold sleeve featuring liner notes booklet with stunning cover artwork and photographs capturing the essence of the quintessential film. It is worth every penny (or shilling) to purchase this import version instead of the standard version which includes 28 tracks, 3 more than the standard edition which are basically just additional dialogue samples from the film, however the instrumental version of Getting Nowhere In A Hurry is absent from this edition. I own both versions and the special edition is by far the best, the rarest, and geared for the collector so go get yourself some Carter!

Silva America presents "GET CARTER" --- The Soundtrack and distinctive music in the film was composed by Roy Budd, a jazz and "easy listening" specialist, who worked well outside his previous boundaries for this film --- The theme tune features the sounds of Caine's train journey from London to Newcastle --- All the music was played by Budd and two other jazz musicians, Jeff Clyne (double bass) and Chris Karan (percussion), all of which make a great jazz combo.

Format: Audio CD
Silva Screen Records gives us a re-release of one of the more iconic film scores of the early 70's. Roy Budd's Get Carter is an iconic jazz infused mob score that hits all the right places in crafting a seedy yet cool atmosphere where bravado lives. The main theme is instantly recognizable and was even reused by Tyler Bates for the Sylvester Stallone remake. The tone is set up with that opening them and what follows is a weaving of songs and jazzy score from Roy Budd with some help from Jack Fishman on some of the songs.

It truly does make a difference that all the songs were also composed (in some cases co-composed) by Roy Budd. They fit so well in the overall quilt of the soundtrack as a whole. In fact in this case the songs outnumber the amount of instrumental score, which for me I wouldn't normally consider score but since it works so well here you may as well consider the songs part of the score.

The musical approach here is a bit untraditional considering there is no theme variations within the score. That iconic theme acts more or less as a bookend. We open with it and close with it. The only variation you hear of the theme within the middle of the score is in the track "Manhunt". Now in most cases I prefer heavily thematic and melodic scores, but with the absence of the theme for almost all of the music it makes the impact that much more grand.

So, what has Silva Screen Records done to this classic score that is worth noting? Not much. It's a repackaged collection of the score that you've seen multiple times under different labels. What could they have done to better the listening experience? Remove all the pesky dialogue clips.

I bought the score after seeing Get Carter when it was released and have since purchased the score and soundtrack box set. I prefer the score album for its innovative and emotive music. If you like down tempo house or contemporary slow electronic music then you'll enjoy this album. If it comes down to choosing between the score and the soundtrack, definetely get the score.
