The Frightened City

This tune, originally recorded by the Shadows, was the title theme of the 1961 British film, “The Frightened City”. Considered to be in the “Neo-Noir” style, the film is about extortion rackets and gang warfare in the West End of London. It stars (a pre-James Bond) Sean Connery, who plays a burglar named Paddy Damion. It also stars (a pre-Chief Inspector Dreyfus) Herbert Lom as the crime boss Waldo Zhernikov.

My recording is a fairly literal cover of the Shadows’ arrangement.
