"Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires" is lengthy (36:09) suite emphasizing fierce action, East-meets-West style. "Kiss of the Vampire" (9:14) highlighted by rhapsodic piano, waltzes. "Vampire Circus" by David Whitaker (7:28) is dark, edgy work. "Lust For a Vampire" by Harry Robinson (18:44) mixes brooding intensity with vampire passions. Okay mono sound. GEORGES DELERUE The Day Of The Dolphin VICP 61178 (Japan - reissue) 29.99 (36:18) 1973 Mike Nichols thriller starring George C. Scott has tender, absolutely gorgeous score. Haunting, beautifully orchestrated main theme. Probably Delerue's finest album. Funny bonus: composer listed as Georges "Dolerue" on packaging.
