10cc - The Original Soundtrack

The Original Soundtrack is a 1975 album by 10cc.

It reached No.4 in the UK and No.15 in the US.

The album was the first to be released by Mercury Records after signing the band for $1 million in February 1975.

The catalyst for the deal was one song – "I'm Not in Love".

Stewart recalled:The Original Soundtrack, which was already complete, was released just weeks later.

It was a critical and commercial success and featured distinctive cover art created by the Hipgnosis team and drawn by artist Humphrey Ocean.It is also notable for its opening track, Godley & Creme's "Une Nuit A Paris ", an eight-minute, multi-part "mini-operetta" that is thought to have been an influence on "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen.

Its melody can also be heard in the overture to Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1986 musical The Phantom of the Opera.

The jaunty single "Life Is A Minestrone" (1975) was another UK Top 10 placing, peaking at #7.

Their biggest success came with the dreamy "I'm Not in Love", which gave the band their second UK #1 in May 1975.

The song also provided them with their first US chart success when the song reached #2.A collaborative effort built around a title by Stewart, "I'm Not in Love" is notable for its innovative production, especially its richly overdubbed choral backing.
