I want to give a special thanks to H2O and Mr.T of Asian Cinema Scores. H2O contributed some rare stuff from his own personal collection and gave me some good insight into the KICA Library. There were many good soundtracks and composers alike from Japan, but most of their works from that time period were scattered throughout compilations. They didn't release the complete OSTs that we're accustomed to.

Mr.T, what can I say? This guy knows his soundtracks! He filled me in on some obscure stuff from older movies (which is my blind spot). Not to mention he's the source of the rare soon to be cult favorite Heroes Two track. You can find Asian Cinema Scores on Franklynot by way of my blog roll. And lastly, I want to give kudos to Library209 (he too is already linked on my blog roll) for his Vladimir Cosma stuff. At this rate, maybe I can crank out Encore 5 by next year. I've filled so many blanks the list grows shorter and shorter. I'll make a post and list what my top 10 sought after cues are some time.

From where and whom is the End Title of Kid with a Tattoo?

It's from a film called "Nunzio" scored by Lalo Schifrin.
