September of Soundtracks: Burt Reynolds Drives Across The Country
Following up with yesterday's post of "Smokey and the Bandit", I thought it only fitting that we present another Burt Reynolds car oriented film soundtrack. This time around it's the soundtrack to that lovable classic, "The Cannonball Run". This movie rules! Period. If you've never seen, go do it right now. It is so great in so many ways! First, Burt Reynolds and Dom Deluise head an all-star cast that includes Roger Moore, Sammy Davis, JR, Dean Martin, Jamie Farr, Adrienne Barbeau and Farrah Fawcett (not to mention Mel Tillis and Terry Bradshaw!) Then you have the American film premiere of Jackie Chan, followed by the great lines (You're small. S-M-all), fast cars, and the introduction of the blooper real while the credits roll. (I don't know about you, but I can watch Burt slap Dom Deluise a thousand times and still think it's funny!) The soundtrack just adds to it! Here it is! Enjoy!
