Quartet Records, Universal Music Group and Paramount Pictures celebrates the 50th anniversary of the iconic caper movie The Italian Job with the expanded edition of Quincy Jones explosive original score!

The original album produced by George Martin at Abbey Road Studios appears freshly remastered, and the CD also includes the previously unreleased film tracks, demos, alternates and bonus material.

The Italian Job is a 1969 British comedy caper film, written by Troy Kennedy Martin, produced by Michael Deeley and directed by Peter Collinson. It tells the story of Charlie Croker (Michael Caine), the leader of a cockney criminal gang released from prison with the intention of doing a 'big job' in Italy to steal gold bullion from an armoured security truck.

It's soundtrack was composed by Quincy Jones, and includes 'On Days Like These' sung by Matt Monro over the opening credits, and 'Getta Bloomin' Move On' (usually referred to as 'The Self-Preservation Society', after it's chorus) during the climactic car chase. Lead actor Michael Caine is among it's singers.

Packaging includes a superb 24 page full colour booklet, housed in a jewel case.
