Item ID: 338582

An orchestral tribute to wheels, wings, and whirly-birds, Bob Thompson's 1960 "concept" LP rhapsodizes about the technology of human transport, from Vespa scooters to Le Mans racers, from tricycles to rocket ships. Each vehicular vignette is book-ended by authentic sound effects, with vivid stereo motion. The Sound of Speed is an overlooked gem from a bygone era of orchestral elegance. It has been mastered in wide-angle stereo and pressed on 180 gram vinyl in the year composer/arranger Bob Thompson turns 85. Tracks: Super Chief (Diesel Train) / Midnight Sailing (Ocean Liner) / La Vespa (Motor Scooter) / Sub-Manhattan Blues (Subway) / Three-Wheeler Waltz (Tricycle) / Count Down (Missile) / Star Fire (Jet Plane) / Surrey Serenade (Horse & Buggy) / Le Mans (Sports Car) / Streetcar Named Irving (Streetcar) / Sea-Spray (Speed Boat) / Early-Bird Whirly-Bird (Helicopter).

Also available: THE SOUND OF SPEED (CD).
