Michel Legrand ‎– Le Mans (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)


Still Sealed

Fans of Steve McQueen's classic racing movie “Le Mans” have been waiting patiently for decades to get their hands on a recording of Michel Legrand's wonderful score. McQueen's obsession with racing footage over plot would probably have fallen flat without Legrand's jazz-tinged orchestrations. This LP finally delivers.  I almost bought it on vinyl back in '81 at a used record store in Covent Garden but passed on the opportunity because it was expensive and I didn't want to carry the record all over Europe. Now, 37 years after I first saw the film as a teenager, the disc is in my own Porsche 911 ready for a drive in the country — although at a bit less than 200 mph.
