Time for some High Adventure from Music De’Wolfe.


Sometime last year, I started posting random videos on a new YouTube channel called “Video Archive Project“. I had planned on keeping it updated but life got busy and as you all know, updating your content takes a lot of hard work – that’s why we love guys like The Retroist.

However, one of the bits I posted was a library track off of a Music De’ Wolfe LP I swiped at my film school that had very sentimental value. The song, Banana Split, was enjoyed by many and is posted here on Retroist! Then just a few days ago, two YouTubers asked me to post ANOTHER track off the same album. (It was smart that used a scan of the LP’s label, huh?) Apparently, it’s a big NFL Films tune – not surprising as NFL Films employed the use of a lot of library music.

So, since I’m laid up with the flu, I thought it was a good way to pass the time and oblige some fans. And I thought you could also enjoy it here. My take on this piece of awesome synthy march music — it gives me a 70s neon medieval fantasy sounding vibe. What about you guys?

    All I know is that when i found out that once in a while i would come by some NFL
    Films music i was thrilled. Found alot of stuff over the last 2 years. But still this was
    the one piece that i could not find. Somebody said the name was “Down in Chinatown”
    by Johnny Pearson. No wonder i could never find it. When i stumbled on it last night,
    I can’t tell you the joy that ran through my soul.Not to mention the wonderful memories watching those old NFL Films. Actually called up NFL Films once asking for
    the name of this and they couldn’t help me. So a million thanks. Needless to say that
    their are still pieces from those 70’s NFL films that i’m still looking for. But I have
    found the holy grail. The piece of music every used by NFL Films. keep posting and
    a million thank you’s. from me and my soul.

    I think just about every fantasy film ever made during the 1980s circulated through my brain as I listened to this tune.
