TT 1962 Audio 2 CD Set - Description

Experience the evocative sounds of the historic 1962 Isle of Man TT, capturing the action, atmosphere and magic of this unique event.

Originally released on vinyl as part of the Stanley Schofield Sound Stories collection, these wonderful recordings have been digitally remastered and are presented here with the original LP sleeves notes.

The now legendary "Voice of Motorsport" Murray Walker provides the commentary, while his father Graham, a TT winner and BBC commentator, conducts interviews with the stars of the day in his final TT review.

Close your eyes and let the roaring engines transport you back to 1962, with the fabulous sounds of the Honda 4s, BMW twins, 500cc four cylinder MVs, BSA sidecars, single cylinder Nortons and many more conjuring up images of a golden era of motorcycle racing.

You'll hear these marvellous machines at full chat as they pass the landmarks of the world-famous TT circuit, with the Walkers charting the race action as it unfolds. 

The CDs feature drama from the Senior, Sidecar, Lightweight, Junior and more. Among the many highlights are the first ever 50cc TT, Gary Hocking recording the first 105mph lap of the Mountain circuit and the incredible wheel-to-wheel battle between the MVs in the Junior TT.

Alongside the evocative sounds of iconic motorcycles are the views of the legendary racers, including interviews with Mike Hailwood, Bob McIntyre, Jim Redman, Derek Minter, Tommy Robb and Beryl Swain - the first woman to compete in a solo TT.

Plus, there is a touching tribute to McIntyre which includes sounds from some of his greatest TT appearances, including the single cylinder AJS of 1959 and 99mph lap on the Honda 4 in 1961.

The wonderful exhaust notes, commentary and interviews are not only a vintage treat, but bring you all the drama and action of a festival of truly thrilling racing.
