Love Jarre's percussive approach on the Overture / Main Titles. One of my favorite FSM releases.
I agree that having pdf eBooklets is very convenient; in this regard, I do believe KR has the jump on everyone - they have eLinerNotes for everything. Now if we can just get HHW to change the colors on the pages, bc the green and red are toasting my retinas. (jk)
It's been quite a while since I've heard any of this score. It was one of my very first soundtracks on vinyl but I didn't particularly recall 'loving' this score. Since this thread was brought up, I thought I'd go in and actually listen again to this score. I listend and it sounded different to me than that old album and - I like it! The more intimate and quiet passages of this score are actually quite lovely, still distinctly Jarre and quite lovely. I think I'll order this. Someone here says it's sold very well, is this title on any past list of very limited quantities?

They ought to fly now that the US is taking Formula 1 seriously with big coverage, what with your big shiny new track in Texas. Who'd 've thought the main deal in car-racing 'd have taken so long to gain popularity over there? But it's there now, and subject matter is everything with a title like that.
