180Gr/Ruud Bos/500 Cps White Vinyl/Rsd 21
Naakt Over De Schutting (Naked Over The Fence), the 1973 movie featuring Dutch actors Rijk de Gooyer, Jon Bluming, Sylvia Kristel and Ko van Dijk, was loosely based on a book written by Rinus Ferdinandusse. Described as a “sriller” (sarcastic thriller) this obscure B-movie was directed by Frans Weisz. It features a silly plot, a comic karate fight and a not-so spectacular tram chase all the way to Artis Zoo, Amsterdam.
The soundtrack is fantastic, it features 16 tracks in a blend of jazz-funk, easy-listening, soul-jazz and vocal pop-rock. It was composed by Ruud Bos, one of the best Dutch composers for soundtracks. He wrote, arranged and composed stunning tracks for this very sought-after album. Standout tracks “Get It Now”, “Model Session”, and especially “Naked Plus”, with tight drumming, piano-chords & walking bass, are great examples of the sexploitation, jazz-funk and breaks style, and are sampled and used by many hip hop artists. The odd man out is the single “Hey, A Letter Came Today” sung by Sylvia Kristel, who became famous for playing Emmanuelle in the softporn film Emmanuelle, which is one of the most successful French films ever produced. Original copies of the album rarely come up for sale, and if they do they’re quite pricey. Therefore, this timely reissue of Naakt Over De Schutting (Naked Over The Fence) comes at a right time. Don’t be put off by the weird Dutch title, this is sophisticated funk.
The “Naakt Over De Schutting (Naked Over The Fence)” soundtrack comes in original replica sleeve artwork. This is available as a limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on white vinyl for the first time ever.
