Re-Rip Remaster

Originally I posted this one back in April 2011. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“The Main Event/Fight” is a Grammy winning single recorded by Barbra Streisand as the theme song for the 1979 film “The Main Event” starring Streisand and Ryan Oneal. The song was written by Paul Jabara, who had also written “Last Dance” (performed by Donna Summer) for “Thank God It’s Friday”. In the US the single debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 on June 16, 1979. After spending 17 weeks on the chart the single peaked at #3 and became a certified gold single.
