AllMusic Review by

Agente Speciale LK was apparently an Italian derivation of sorts of the 1960s James Bond films. Bruno Nicolai's score is not so much sub-Bond spy thriller music as a potpourri of European and Italian 1960s incidental movie backgrounds. There are chintzy party scene/go-go tunes with cheap fuzz guitars, Hammond organ, and strained swinger vocals; quasi-chamber music; dainty, angelic easy listening with the soprano vocals of Edda Dell'Orso; light jazz; white-bread scat singing; and pieces that are obviously designed for certain situations, like "Circus Fight" and "Parachute Down." It's varied and fun in a frivolous period fashion, but not a high point in '60s Eurotrash film music by any means. The CD reissue on Dagored adds one previously unreleased track, "The Lucky Suite."
