"Carras also shows up on Girl In

Gold Boots (★★★★), providing

the theme tune and a Hammond

heavy groover called ‘Knockin’

Boots’ for this 1968 grindhouse film

about the seedy underbelly of the

go-go dancing world, directed by exploitation filmmaker

Ted V Mikels, the man also behind The Doll Squad. Yet

whilst Carras’s cues, along with shimmying numbers

from Chris Howard and Joe Valino exemplify the

burlesque world portrayed in the fi lm, the lion’s share of

the soundtrack weirdly consists of country cuts from

Larry Cartell and Jody Daniels; and whilst Cartell’s

eponymous title track is actually a pretty fi ne slice of

country-funk, his festive offering ‘Cowboy Santa’ is

sicklier than a tub of Quality Street."

    Girl In Gold Boots is Ted V. Mikels’ (The Corpse Grinders) homage to the time tested “small town girl moves to the big city to become a go-go dancer” story. And if a movie is ostensibly about go-go dancing, then we’re gonna need some music to go-go to. And that’s what this album you’re now holding is all about. From the odd psych rocker “Do You Want To Laugh Or Cry,” to a frenetic barrage of country soul. It’s got some solid harmonica groovers, an odd xmas song and of course the banger of a title track!

    What we have is mostly country soul, a hybrid perfected by Elvis, Joe South, Jerry Reed, Bobbi Gentry, etc. in the late ‘60s. Many of the songs here, performed by Larry Cartell, appeared on the tiny Glenolden Records label, which issued a mere seven 7” singles in ’67/‘68. Nine of the songs featured here were on those 45s - Jerry Wallace’s “That’s The Fool In Me,” Cartell’s “Girl In Gold Boots,” “Jimmy’s Girl,” “Wheels Of Love,” “My Careless Heart,” “Sin,” and “Cowboy Santa,” plus Danny Welton’s “Julie” and “Strobelights.”

    The film also features Joe Valino’s fantastic 1959 popper “(Everything I Touched Turned To) Gold,” which later became a hit on the Belgian Popcorn dance scene. Combine this all with some Nicholas Carras cool Crime Jazz cues and you’ve got quite a romp. Now, go don your gold boots, and get ready to boogaloo. Go, baby, go! GO!!!

    Pressed on colored vinyl, and includes a DVD of the entire film with lots of extras!

    Also available on CD!
