VA - Shake Sauvage: French Soundtracks 1968-1973

A cool compilation of soundtracks to French films, with lots of hammond organ, big bands, tight jerky funk and sultry vocals, conducted by various soundtrack composers of the day. The respective movies I could find didn't seem like much to talk about, other than often being small exploitation movies, mostly thrillers or pornography, but like blaxploitation movies of the time it was often a good chance for soundtrack composers to play around, such as the Pierre Henry style bell solo on 'Le Crocodile Porte-Clé' or the petrol-obsessed lyrics on 'Petrol Pop'. Crippled Dick have also put out similar compilations of Italian and German soundtracks and Blow Up records have also put out their 'Exclusive Blend' compilations of 60s British library and soundtrack beat music. For more soundtracks do see Paul Durango's Blog.
