Just A Gigolo: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Cherry Red)

While in the middle of his Berlin era, David Bowie accepted a lead role in a truly terrible film that was quickly forgotten about. In spite of the film’s flaws, it did offer an entertaining and enjoyable soundtrack, even if it feels something like a missed opportunity considering the movie’s two illustrious stars. This reissue marks its first appearance on CD and first major reissue in 40 years.
