Jazz tractors

I’m trying to write something about my interest in farm tractors for The Weeklings, and have been watching some old videos to get me in the mood.

These opening titles from the Classic Farm Machinery Vol 2 DVD (Farming Press Videos, should you be interested) make me laugh because of the strange combination of moody jazz with dramatic edits of men and machines  at ploughing matches. I like to imagine it as the start of a New Wave movie set in the world of English competitive ploughing in the early 1970s.
