Long Way Down - Music from The Television Series
The soundtrack of an epic motorbike adventure from John O'Groats to Cape Town
Real World Records has been working closely with the Long Way Down production to provide the soundtrack to the journey. You can hear Real World music on the BBC 2 television series and this new double CD (as well as the accompanying DVD to be released on December 3rd by EMI). Drawing from the catalogue of outstanding artists - Geoffrey Oryema, Ayub Ogada, Joseph Arthur, Sheila Chandra, Adrian Sherwood to name but a few and introducing new tracks from Big Blue Ball and Sasha and BT, Ben Onono and The Boxer Rebellion and the specially recorded theme tune by Stereophonics, this is also an amazing musical journey.
Long Way Down: Created & executive produced by David Alexanian, Charley Boorman, Russ Malkin and Ewan McGregor
