Here's a Lalo Schifrin score I didn't know about until recently and it's our 448th Soundtrack of the Week: Boulevard Nights.

This is a pretty rocking album, a mixture of funk, disco, salsa and whatever else. Tons of percussion, groovy keyboards, chanking guitars, sweeping string lines on top and several vocal numbers, including one by George Benson.

This is '70s gold here for sure, a soundtrack for dancing. Only the last three tracks, the main title theme, "Dolor" and "Last Act" take things down a little bit to let you catch your breath. Otherwise it's nonstop movement.
