View Full Version : OT: Any good NAM-era soundtrack around ?

You know the scene - the choppers (usually the good ole HUEYs) swirl in and some cool background-music brings any Nam-war film spectator back to those days.

Is there any good music around you know about ?

Let me know. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Try any (pukka) Hendrix album. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If you'd like an atmospheric background track check out the instrumental 'Pali Gap', originally on the Rainbow Bridge Film soundtrack, but much more recently on the superb 'South Saturn Delta' CD. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

there's always the Apocalypse Now soundtrack. But make sure you drink a bottle of bourbon before you listen to 'The End'.
