子連れ狼 地獄へ行くぞ!大五郎

lone-wolf-and-cub-sword-of-vengeance

Kunihiko Murai – 子連れ狼 地獄へ行くぞ!大五郎 (Kodure Ookami Jigoku/White Heaven and Hell

Hideaki Sakurai – 子連れ狼 冥府魔道 (Kodure Ookami Maifumando/Baby Cart in the Land of Demons)

More themes from the legendary Lone Wolf & Cub series of films from the early seventies about Ogami Itto, an wandering assassin and his extremely fashionably dressed little son, Daigoro. White Heaven and Hell begins like a Love Unlimited tune, then breaks into a seriously funky club number. Baby Cart in the Land of Demons is a jazzy dancefloor track.

Sonic Boom

Mikis Theodorakis – Sonic Boom

The main theme from this 1967 film has been posted before but here now is the even wilder, dub-like take adding sound effects. In the movie, flamboyantly dressed hedonists on a Creek island keep dancing to this track, unaware that a radioactivity from an accidentally dropped bomb is slowly poisoning everything living around them.

Isle Of Lesbos

ghiol-1819186773313636Gerhard Heinz – Isle Of Lesbos (1978)

Previously unreleased soundtrack of the movie “Die Insel der tausend Freuden” and now pressed in limited quantities by Private Records.
The whole OST is really pretty solid.

Note: this specific track does actually only appear for a few very short seconds (!) in the movie, no more.

J.A.K.Q – The Vocal Version

jakq

J.A.K.Q

Attention boys and girls everywhere! To fight a global criminal empire known as CRIME the ISSIS, the International Science Special-Investigation Squad, is formed. Daisuke Kujirai, commander of the Tokyo branch – codename JOKER – turns four recruits into cryogenically sustained cyborgs with energy manipulation powers to destroy the criminal organisation.

The instrumental version of the short-lived but apparently eternally remembered television show has been posted here a few years back but not until now have I found the offical vocal one.

Tino Casal

rec

Tino Casal – Eloise

Richard Band – Re-animator Theme

A contemporary yet fully orchestrated version of the classic tune heard during the party scenes and the end credits of Jaume Balaquero’s (REC)3 The Genesis, the weakest but still entertaining chapter in the ongoing REC saga. Hopes are high for episode number 4 which will open in Spain on 10th of October as it will focus on the original Angela Vidal character seen in parts one and two. For the uninitiated: in 2007, a television reporter and a cameraman documenting the daily work of Barcelona fire fighters are trapped inside a gloomy apartment building, facing an outbreak of demonic infestation.

The second track is the Bernardhermannesque theme from a beloved, certified classic.

Natura – Supersonic Man

I inspect my purchases in a Barcelona cafe and the guy in the next table starts to talk to me. He: What kind of music is that? Me: It’s a soundtrack, a theme from a Spanish film. He: They make movies in Spain? Me: Yes. This is from the seventies, though. He: I don’t know any music or movies from Spain. I represent the great state of Texas here, I was a sophomore class president and voted the most likely to succeed and was in the top 10 percent in the college, and I play basketball.

Supersonic Man (1979) got a general realese in Spain, the US, West Germany, France, Denmark, Finland, Portugal, Turkey and in Norway, where it was allowed to be screened only to those over 16 years of age.

Los Angeles ´76 Mix

Pam

Los Angeles ´76 mix

What kind of car did Pam Grier drive in 1976 – a De Tomaso Pantera GTS? A yellow Chevrolet Corvette? Imagine her behind the wheel at midnight, cruising past the billboards on her way to the After Dark in the corner of Beverly Boulevard and La Cienega, or to the famous Circus Disco. This is the music she heard on the radio, switching channels every few minutes. Cool jazzy moods, elegant instrumentals, male harmony tunes and a hot latin hustle classic or two.
