Quincy Jones – In The Heat of the Night OST

Unbelievable. An incredible film, and incredible soundtrack. I think I heard the music first but I don't know how – I still have my old copy at home that I've had since I was 14 or 15. Music became a comfort for me when I was on my own in London, it's trite to say it but it's also true. The film made an impression in terms of race. I wonder how he made it, all the musicians in the room at the same time playing to picture. Quincy Jones is just… ooooo. I could have had Off The Wall in this list – when that came out my girlfriend and I just spent three weeks in bed just listening to it, well, not quite doing nothing, but I was obsessed. That was over quite quickly.
