On a trip to Istanbul I found this beauty tucked away in a musty box on a second hand book market. It could have rained all week for what I cared, nothing could ruin my vacation with a souvenir like this!

This record was to promote Evel’s stunt: the 3/4 mile Snake River Canyon jump in 1974. There’s some nice interviews with him explaining a few fun facts about the preparation for the stunt. There’s also a part with the dare-doer talking with kids, some wise words about what we can learn from his life and there’s a pretentious country ballad about him too. Great stuff!

A fun thing I discovered: The ‘skycycle’ sample on AFX’s Analog Bubblebath IV album comes from this record. I could’ve known since the track is named ‘Knievel”…but it just never occurred to me that it was Evel Knievel until I heard it on this record  :)
