One of the craziest cross-country films ever made – with a host of stars so big we'd have to rent another website just to list them! Ernest Gold does a pretty nice job with the soundtrack – maybe not as all-out goofy as the story, but in a nice way that really helps to anchor the action! Orchestrations are mostly familiar Hollywood modes, but pretty darn playful, too – and titles include "Follow The Leader", "Away We Go", "The Living End", "You Satisfy My Soul", "Instant Chase", "The Big W", "The Great Pursuit", and "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Columbia, Late 60s. Sealed
Barry conducts versions of his famous soundtrack themes from the 60s – as you'd guess from the title – taking them in different directions than on the original recordings, and coming up with some nice moody readings that show the direction he was heading in the late 60s. There's some ... LP, Vinyl record album
