June 28, 2014 Record of the Day

Dean Martin made the character of Matt Helm famous in the 1960s in films such as “Murderer’s Row,” one in a series of four Matt Helm films.  Spoofs of James Bond movies, the Matt Helm films were filled with jokes and beautiful women. The movie soundtrack music was provided by Lalo Schifrin. Dean Martin’s picture was not allowed on the album cover due to contractual arrangements. An original copy in stereo, released on Colgems records in 1967, is now worth up to $100.00. “Murderers’ Row” is just one of the 10,000 soundtracks listed on our Soundtracks CD, covering movies, TV shows, and Broadway shows. It’s available in the left hand column.
