The Liquidator is a soundtrack album to the motion picture The Liquidator by Argentine composer, pianist and conductor Lalo Schifrin recorded in 1965 and released on the MGM label.[1] An expanded edition of the soundtrack was released by Film Score Monthly in 2006.[2] Shirley Bassey, then well known for her Goldfinger title song performed two versions of the theme; a hard driving main title theme and a softer romantic version called My Liquidator. Due to the delayed release of the film, the soundtrack was issued later in 1966[3]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review states "Taking a few cues from Mancini, Ellington, and Bacharach, Schifrin fashions a fetching lounge backdrop here, with enough of the way of original and sophisticated touches to make it worthy of the competition".[4]
