Why mix a sideburn? Always cutting the edge of style, sideburns symbolize a distinct brand of cool. So too, does Lupin the 3rd. Lupin, the gentleman thief, captured the Japanese imagination 30 years ago - and his happening vibe never let up.

The proof, they say, is in the music. The uber-catchy theme song is burrowed into the collective Japanese consciousness. Prominent music acts and DJs spun more than 200 takes on that theme since 1967. The Sideburn Club Mix collects the best of these - from jazz to techno - creating a unique CD of aural sensations everyone from Lupin to Zenigata will dig.
