Inside The Groove

A spine-chilling on the scene stereophonic recording of the 500 Mile Classic race, recorded at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in May 1957.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

It's not a music kind, but a recording of 1957 Indianapolis Motor Speedway Race. We can hear thrilling sound of engines and exhaust, screams of skidding rubber, car-crash scene, as well as interview with many drivers.

Definitely a great gem for motor-sport fan.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)
