Instrumental Gold was a TV-advertised double-LP set issued in Canada in 1976 on the Windmill label. The tracks were recorded in England and credited to the Windmill Orchestra. The tunes ranged from instrumental rock to easy listening and movie and TV themes.
A similar Instrumental Gold set with almost exactly the same cover was issued by Warwick in the U.K. the same year. It was also advertised on TV.
The track listing was different from the Canadian version, but a few cuts appeared on both releases. However, the U.K. release, on a single LP, credited the tracks individually to various artists, including the Bev Phillips Orchestra, Terry Walsh and the Phantoms and Don Lusher and His Trio.
The British version was issued in Germany in 1978 by K-Tel with this cover.
Anyway, back to the Canadian version. This release contained several then-recent movie and TV themes that were not included in the U.K., including Shaft, S.W.A.T. and The Rockford Files.
The Rockford Files
The Windmill Orchestra take on the Theme from The Rockford Files is very close to that of the original by Mike Post.
