    This is a peculiar album featuring 12 tracks inspired by the 1984 summer olympics in Los Angeles. Most of the tracks are instrumental, and my favorite is actually Foreigner's melodic and exciting instrumental offering Street Thunder. Other good ones are Grace by Quincy Jones and Toto's Moodido. while A Chance For Heaven by Christopher Cross is the best vocal track. Giorgio Moroder and Paul Engemann's Reach Out is decent, and Bill Conti's Power is quite enjoyable too.

    The jazzy Courtship by Bob James is plain annoying, and the trite rock number by Loverboy is best forgotten. The tracks by John Williams, Herbie Hancock and Philip Glass are rather typical for those composers, while the opening theme by Leo Arnaud is famous for its inclusion in the computer game Summer Games, also in 1984.

    All in all an interesting album worth picking up, even though I missed a track by a composer like Vangelis in this eclectic mix.

      Had no big expectations, but it's really (unexpectedly) good indeed.

        I thought this was a joke album when I bought it.. but it has slowly become the record I play the most often.
