Dave Grusin: Gasoline Alley
From Winning (Decca, 1969)

Howard Blake: An Elephant Called Slowly (Reprise)
From An Elephant Called Slowly (Bell, 1970)

Some other soundtrackables for ya’ll. “Gasoline Alley” from the Paul Newman racing film, Winning is straight fire: fast and funky. I’m surprised more folks haven’t really messed with this: either by remaking it or sampling it. It’s so ridiculously hot.

The reprise of the main theme from An Elephant Called Slowly goes the other way: laid back, chill and smooooooth. Unlike Winning, which is a one-tracker, this soundtrack is full of nice bits of drums and potential loops, or in this case, just a nice song to throw on for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
