Bill Conti & V/A, Rocky III [OST] (1982)
Before I could find the original Rocky soundtrack I had this. Worthy, obviously, for Eye Of The Tiger but the version of the Gonna Fly Now – the Rocky theme – was a letdown. So if anything this record kept me searching for the original soundtrack – which I now have. But I’m into this. Sly even lets his brother sing a couple of tunes. What a guy! Also, much as I love the first two movies it’s Rocky III that I have seen the most. I guess that’s due to Mr T and Hulk Hogan being in it – and that was like crack as a youngster.
Sample Track: Pushin’ (Frank Stallone)
