One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest premiered #OnThisDayInMusic Nov. 18, 1975. The American comedy-drama film was directed by Miloš Forman, based on the 1962 novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey. The film stars Jack Nicholson. In 1993, the film was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the United States Library of Congress, and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.
The soundtrack was composed by Jack Nitzsche, and was nominated for Best Score in the Academy Awards. Nitzsche was Phil Spector‘ right hand man, he worked with the Wrecking Crew, and was a member of Neil Young’s Crazy Horse. He also scored The Exorcist, and contributed on The Monkees Head Soundtrack, among many other things. It’s up on #SoundtrackSunday

Vinyl: Miles Davis “on the corner”. #milesdavis#onthecorner Thoughts: anyone looking to get into Miles let me know and I’ll help give you the road map. This one is a deeper cut. Pretty strong fusion happening here. Funky with very odd grooves.

I got a day behind in the #novvinylchallenge Day 16 was "International artist" Are there any Africans taking place in the challenge? Manu Dibango is from Camaroon, he plays sax and vibes. His music was an intresting mix of jazz, funk, and traditional Cameroonian music. This is a French pressing of Africadelic on the Fiesta label, one of his earlier records (1973) Believe it or not this was a thrift store find in the early 2000's. It's quite good and worth checking out if you're into upbeat 70s soul jazz.
Vinyl: American Football. #americanfootball Thoughts: American Football the band, not the sport. This is a fantastic album. “Never Meant” is my favorite song and it pretty much sounds like leafs 🍁 turning colors.
