A very cool soundtrack to this excellent Steve McQueen film! The soundtrack's quite different than most of Legrand
's work from the time – in that it's kind of a collage of music, sounds from the film, racing bits, and other material – all fused into a beautiful blend that's still quite musical, and which acts almost as an aural representation of the film itself. Legrand
gets out some great melodies that rank with his other work of the time – but they sound different, with racing cars blasting through them! Includes 2 vocal numbers with lyrics by Marilyn & Alan Bergman – "The Shooting Gallery
" and "A Face In The Crowd" – plus the tracks "Delaney's Arrival & Memories", "The Race, First Laps", and "The Race, Final Laps".
