Conquistador

Very nice clean vinyl with a smart cover.

Conquistador is the ninth album by Canadian jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson on Columbia Records.[1] The album is notable for its inclusion of the hit single "Gonna Fly Now (Theme from "Rocky")".

"Gonna Fly Now", also known as "Theme from Rocky", is the theme song from the movie Rocky, composed by Bill Conti with lyrics by Carol Connors and Ayn Robbins, and performed by DeEtta West and Nelson Pigford. Released in February 1977 with the movie Rocky, the song became part of American popular culture after main character Rocky Balboa as part of his daily training regimen runs up the 72 stone steps leading to the entrance of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Philadelphia and raises his arms in a victory pose, while the song plays. The song was written in Philadelphia. The song is also often played at sporting events, especially at sporting events in the city of Philadelphia or featuring sports teams from there.
