Sam Spence’s name is equivalent to the sound of football. His work for NFL Films and their productions for the US National Football League since 1966 meant a substantial output of music. Based in his adopted home town Munich he also wrote music for German TV series and international movies. This CD features both - the range of Spence’s work reaches from symphonic orchestral music over Big Band swing to mainstream jazz and even synthesizer sounds. Most of the tracks on this CD are instrumentals, just the two James Bond-ish versions of Queen of Diamonds come with vocals. In its chronology this CD perfectly reflects the contemporary music styles of the era, from swinging jazz over funky blaxploitation to what Kraftwerk stands for.
