•    A total of 35 tracks covering 1958-1974, plus a lavish 108-page booklet featuring many rare and previously unseen photos, a detailed history of the making of the movie, and discography.

In a career that spanned over 50 years and 120 films, 1958s 'Thunder Road,' the tale of an outlaw moonshine runner caught between gangsters and G-Men on the roads of the southern USA, was Robert Mitchum's most personal movie. As well as starring, he wrote the story, produced, and effectively co-directed the film.

Mitchum also came up with the music, co-writing two songs, The Ballad Of Thunder Road and Whippoorwill, which he then turned over to composer Jack Marshall (the man who arranged Peggy Lee's Fever, and wrote the theme tune for 'The Munsters') to use as the basis of the soundtrack.

This compilation features the first ever release for Marshall's 'Thunder Road' music, for which he recruited legendary country guitarist Joe Maphis – 'The King Of The Strings' – to accompany the movie's famous, frantic car chases.

Alongside Marshall's soundtrack, the album gathers together spin-off singles recorded to promote the film in 1958, including Mitchum's iconic rockabilly hit, The Ballad Of Thunder Road, and lesser-heard tracks like Marshall & Maphis's instrumental Thunder Road Chase and Keely Smith's gorgeous Whippoorwill, as arranged by Nelson Riddle.

In addition, the album unearths original songs Mitchum hired singer Randy Sparks to write for his movie in 1957, but which were never used, and rounds up some of the greatest cover versions of The Ballad Of Thunder Road, from western swing star Tex Williams and bluegrass idols Jim & Jesse, through to surf group The Super Stocks and Memphis guitar guru Travis Wammack.

'Thunder Road' is presented in a digipac format and features all the usual high standard Bear Family trademarks; a 108-page booklet with abundant photographs, a history of the making of the film, and a discography of the tracks included by Damian Love.
