Original soundtrack to the acclaimed documentary. Goal is the film documentary of the eighth World Cup, held in England in 1966; famously (and controversially) won by the host nation, with commentary by Brian Glanville, the world's foremost authority on international football, and narrated by Nigel Patrick. Our edition marks the 50 year anniversary of the tournament and celebrates England and Alf Ramsey''s successful campaign to bring the World Cup back to where football began. John Hawksworth’s inventive score is among the most enduring features of this remarkable film. A very cinematic mixture of minimalist chamber jazz and psychedelia, it reveals a composer with real feeling for the subject and an understanding of the machinations of documentary filmmaking. An impressive production combining Cinemascope and Technicolor, Goal is distinguished by powerful images; oblique perspectives captured by an army of cameramen. The film presented football as it had never been seen before. It is a singular sporting and social record of the era. From the arrival at Heathrow of the competing nations to the dramatic culmination of the tournament at Wembley on July 30, all of the most memorable moments are depicted and commented on musically by Hawksworth.
