“You can always rely on a gangster to deliver the goods, and a film composer to provide the music to make them look good, even in a shower of bullets…” – Michael Beek (Music From the Movies)

From the controversial 60s flick Bonnie And Clyde to the gritty entertaining throwback American Gangster and Scorsese’s The Departed, this solid 17 track compilation tracks progress and development of soundtrack in gangster classics.

In order to create the violent, seedy, power-thirsty, romantic theme and characters which epitomize the ‘gangster’ genre, film makers rely heavily on the film composer and some of the greatest names are represented on this album – Nino Rota (The Godfather I, II & III), Ennio Morricone (Once Upon A Time In America), Mikis Theodorakis (Serpico), Hans Zimmer (You’re So Cool) and Howard Shore (Gangs Of New York and The Departed).
