So Rozsa's "VIPs" is not Sunday Afternoon listening - but this Shire opus is?
... what type wine, praytell, does Onya drink whilst listening to '70s political paranoia on a Sunday Afternoon in the 21st century?

70s paranoid political conspiracy thrillers (The Conversation, Parallax, Condor) are the ultimate in wine- or bourbon-drinking music, preferably with dim lighting.

Vote yourself another pay raise, like how Congress (perpetually) does (for themselves).

Even when congress disagrees on everything, you can count on them to come together and place country first when it comes to this critical issue!

I bought this on its release for Michael Small's Klute (1971) as I'd seen the film two or three times and knew I enjoyed the score. I can't recall if I'd seen All the President's Men (1976) then and David Shire has never been a composer I would buy on the off-chance ...

The last time we played Klute I was asking myself what it was I had, until then, liked in the score ... it was doing nothing for me. Perhaps the mood I was in ...

and yet, whilst I don't consider the other score to be wonderful, I do usually enjoy it, especially the insistence of the CREEP Sequence. As it's >2yrs since last played I hope that it still resonates with me ...

... and my next play of Klute brings back the listening pleasure it once generated.
