From a tape owned by the Gary McFarland Estate, this private recording features McFarland’s fairly well known theme to the film “Eye Of The Devil” in a vocal and instrumental version. The personnel is unknown, however, Gabor Szabo is readily identifiable, providing signature support to the male vocalist (who sounds very much like Matt Monro) on the vocal version and, in a differing manner altogether befitting the lead of the unknown flutist (probably Sadao Watanabe) on the instrumental version. Truly provocative.
