there is some really incredible stuff on this collection. Roubaix is a full-on freak, creating all sorts of incidental music that was undoubtedly better than the schlock it was being scored to. The first half of the disc is kind of fluttery, pastoral harpischord stuff, while the last half starts to get into the moog madness. This track is on the fluttery side, with some righteous spanish-style melody being plucked while underneath it, a steady folk rhythm comes courtesy of some other frog rocking the acoustic. It makes me want to row a boat and wear a striped shirt and laugh the laugh of kings!
