Love In A 4 Letter World OST
256+ VBR LAME mp3
Vinyl rip & scans from Gap Records APSE. 1051
Very rare and highly sought-after soundtrack with touches of Moog, psych, fuk, latin and breaks galore. As well as other Canadian TV and indie films throughout the 70s and 80s, Paul Baillargeon would go on to compose the soundtracks for Star Trek Voyager, Enterprise and Deep Space Nine. He was also highly involved in the Québécois music scene in general and has many credits for French artists such as JP Ferland, Ginette Reno and Celine Dion.
There's a good bio on PB ici for those of you who can read French, otherwise Google's translation into English is available here. This album was also released in Québéc with the title Viens, Mon Amour. Psychébélique has a nice write-up on the LP (en Français) with a couple preview tracks - "Harizap" and "Moog-Over" (a.k.a. "Sans Raison") - plus a couple dope mid-70s Baillargeon tracks from 7" 45s as a sweet little bonus.

I wonder what this movie is like, because the soundtrack is an insane MONSTER! No less than four funk tracks with huge drums and open breaks. Crazy psychy Moog tracks, a lovely soft rock scat vocal number called “Susan’s Ride” and a spot-on bossa nova groover called “Felicia-Nova.” The track “Cut-Out” is a funky killer, with the sharpest, punchiest drum sound ever and a really nice break. This is a beast, and really tough to track down. Apparently, there is another pressing of this on GAP entitled “Viens, Mon Amour” for French-speaking Canadians. The movie came out in Canada as the above mentioned “Love In A Four Letter World” and in the UK as “Sex Isn’t Sin.” The fact that not more people know this baby IS a sin!

Brilliant funky soundtrack for a Canadian B-movie from 1970. Tracks like “Cago 9” and “Cut-Out” have drum breaks that will tear your head off! There are two great soft rock vocal cuts, and a terrific moog led funky space jam called “Moog-Over.” This is a KILLER funk soundtrack. Don’t believe me?
