BOB THOMPSON - The Sound of Speed CD


Product Information

Long-sought orchestral tribute to wheels, wings, and whirly birds reissued! In the days of Esquivel's Space Age Bachelor Pad Music prime, orchestra leader/composer/arranger Bob Thompson was his stylistic counterpart. They recorded for the same label (RCA Victor), employed many of the same musicians and vocalists, and experimented with sound in the same LA studios. The Sound of Speed is Thompson's 1960 "concept" LP (originally recorded for the Dot label). Each composition evokes a different mode of modern transport, from Vespa scooters to Le Mans racers to rocket ships. The Sound of Speed has been long out of print and high on the list of overlooked gems that connoisseurs of sophisticated sounds have been clamoring to see reissued. Its highlights have been a staple of production music for decades.
