Resurrection

Hello :)

I got good news. I'm starting to patch up the site and once that is done I will be posting new material. Now when I say "patch up the site" I am talking about re-uploading all past links. This will take some time but it needs to be done.

Please note that I will be making some changes. When I started this blog I posted everything in MP3 although I always posted in the best quality possible to the format (basically 320kbps CBR MP3 using Lame). Later on I decided to start adding Lossless FLAC rips. Well from now on I will ONLY post Lossless FLAC rips. If you want MP3 or some other format you will have to convert it yourself.

Another change is that I will be uploading files using 7z compression. Why not RAR files? Well I've been a fan of Linux for a while and lately I've started using it more and more. At the heart of Linux is the idea of free and open source programs and software. WinRAR is neither. However there is a free open source program called 7-Zip which can compress to a variety of formats, including 7z compression. So moving forward all my files will be 7z compressed files which have been created with this 7-Zip software. The good news is that 7-Zip is available for all major platforms including Windows, Mac and Linux. Here is a link: http://www.7-zip.org/

Please note that file verification is another important aspect of file sharing. I create what is called a MD5 files for all of my uploads. There are ways of checking this to ensure that what you get after downloading is 100% the same as I uploaded. You see errors can occur when uploading/downloading software and so it is always a good way to double check and MD5 seems to be the best and easiest way to do it. There are a variety of ways to create and check MD5 files but for those who are using Windows I suggest getting the program QuickSFV. This program only makes SFV files (which is a different type of checksum file) but it can be used to verify MD5 checksums and once it is installed you simply double click on the MD5 and it will start to check the files. I highly recommend it for Windows users. If you use a Mac or if you use Linux then a simple Google search should give you ideas on how to use MD5 checksums in those Operating Systems. Anyway here is a link for QuickSFV: http://www.quicksfv.org/

That's all that I can think of for now. Once I'm done completely updating the site I'll post again as a reminder that it is all done. I expect this to take a couple of weeks or so. After that it will be new posts with new material.

Don't forget to support me if you like this blog. I have a simple means of donating via Pay Pal and yes it really does and will help me out if you can do that.

Now you'll excuse me but I have a lot of uploading to do ...

MegaUpload is gone

Well people we have a problem. MegaUpload got shut down. Some of my links were with RapidShare but most were with MegaUpload. This means almost all my links are dead now. I'm not happy about this especially since I had just uploaded a bunch of stuff and was about to post it here for your enjoyment.

Anyway I'm not going to stop but I don't want to post anything new until I get all the old posts working again and that will probably take a while.

Right now I'm not sure where I will be hosting the files. Obviously MegaUpload wasn't the only company offering file sharing services but I don't want to pick the wrong company again (not that anyone could have imagined this happening the way it did). I do have some ideas but if anyone would like to chime in on this then please do so.

Vampyros Lesbos


Today I present the wild and wacky world of Jess Franco. Back in 1995 a German label known as Lucertola made a bit of a splash when they released 3 FILMS BY JESS FRANCO (Lucertola Media LMCD 004). This very limited (only 500 copies) CD proved to be immensely popular. Around this same time Jess Franco's movie VAMPYROS LESBOS (1970) had gotten a nicely remastered VHS release in the UK. This VHS release included not only the movie of course but also a short "video" at the end featuring one of the songs from the movie (The Lions And The Cucumber). Apparently this was released in the UK as a 'single' and did rather well. I think that is when the Lucertola CD came out although I'm not sure if it came out beforehand or not. I'm going by memory here. All I know for sure is that everyone and his brother wanted this CD but there were only 500 copies. Now Lucertola was, as far as I know, a legit label although I believe they are no longer in business and/or no longer releasing new material. However this particular release was considered an "unofficial" or "bootleg" release. As a result more were not forthcoming.

Then another German label called Crippled Dick Hot Wax released their version on LP and CD which they called VAMPYROS LESBOS SEXADELIC DANCE PARTY but alas it did not include ALL of the music heard on the previous Lucertola CD release. However the CD was easy to come by and there was even an official US release by a label called Motel Records (this is the CD that I have and is exactly the same as the Crippled Dick Hot Wax German release). I should point out that in 2006 another release of this came out promising to be "remastered" and supposedly including 3 bonus tracks. I do not have nor have I heard this version with my own ears but the other earlier releases sound pretty darn awesome to my ears so I'm not sure how much better a remastering could make 'em (and I suspect such claims to be marketing hype but I can't say for sure as I don't have this 2006 release).


By the way I should add that VAMPYROS LESBOS finally got a very nice DVD release in the US by Synapse Films and then yet another DVD release later on by Image Entertainment so be sure to check it out!

Murder to the Tune of the Seven Black Notes (1977) aka Sette Note In Nero



Today I present the score to Lucio Fulci's SETTE NOTE IN NERO (1977). This one is known under a variety of other titles including: Murder To The Tune Of Seven Black Notes (my personal favorite), Seven Notes In Black (I believe the literal English translation) and The Psychic (the title used for the original US release). The score is by Bixio-Frizzi-Tempera (three musicians who often worked together and yes the Frizzi in there is Fabio Frizzi). The CD was released by Digitmovies (Catalog Code: CDDM062) in 2006.

This is a giallo by Lucio Fulci which he made prior to his gore drenched zombie years so it might disappoint some fans but it's still a fine film and has some grizzly moments. I'm a big fan (obviously) of Mr. Fulci and I have seen this film but only once and it was a long time ago. I need to see it again. I don't remember liking it as much as his earlier giallo efforts nor does this giallo outshine other, better films in the genre but it is a fine effort nonetheless and a good film. The stand out here is the score though so I hope you enjoy it. It really does help to "make" the film. Oh and if you didn't know already a key track from the score was used by Tarantino in his film KILL BILL VOL. 1

Track List:

01. Sucidio (Prologo) (01:36)
02. With You (Titoli) (04:15)
03. Tunnels (01:25)
04. Strane Visioni (01:30)
05. Allucinazioni (02:51)
06. Abbatimento Del Muro (01:33)
07. 7 Note (Film Version) (02:27)
08. Tracce Sul Muro (Film Version) (02:31)
09. Concerto Alla Radio (02:44)
10. Ritrovamento Del Cadavere (03:28)
11. Fuga (01:03)
12. 7 Note (Film Version # 2) (01:12)
13. Fuga Seconda (01:26)
14. Il Ritorno Di Francesco (01:54)
15. Conversazione (01:16)
16. La Lettera (02:11)
17. Aggressione (02:05)
18. Murata Viva E Salvataggio (Epilogo) (04:29)

La Cripta E L'Incubo aka Crypt Of The Vampire


Today I present the score to LA CRIPTA E L'INCUBO (1963) by Carlo Savina. This film is known under a wide variety of titles but most know it as CRYPT OF THE VAMPIRE. The CD was released by Digitmovies (Catalog Code: CDDM182) back in March of 2011.

I've never seen this movie. I do know it's an Italian gothic horror film that is loosely based on Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu's famous novella "Carmilla"

There was a DVD release back in 2006 that is still available and rather inexpensive. I'll have to pick it up one of these days.

I've only had a chance to listen to the CD once (I'm on my second listen right now as I type this up) so I'm not sure how to explain it other than it reminds me of the music from other Italian gothic horror films like Bava's BLACK SUNDAY etc. and while it is very different from the giallo scores that came later I am still enjoying it very much. 

Track List:

01. La maledizione di Karlstein (Titoli) (01:49)
02. La cripta e l'incubo (Ombre nel buio) (01:09)
03. Angoscia (01:45)

Laure aka Forever Emmanuelle


Today I present the score LAURE (1975) aka Forever Emmanuelle. The score is by Franco Micalizzi. The CD was released by Digitmovies (Catalog Code: CDDM133) in 2009.

I've never actually seen this movie although I recently downloaded a nice DVD rip via a bit torrent site so I plan on it but I can tell you that this is a great score and to date I think this is my favorite by composer Micalizzi. It sort of has a funky jazzy lounge like sound to it. Very mellow and relaxing but not boring in the least. Give it a try!

01. Laure (theme song) (05:08)
02. Mara's Theme (02:09)

Just a quick update

Well I got back on track a while back after a long spell of nothing and then ... again ... nothing.

Sorry about that!

I have a lot of stuff I want to post and so I just want to give a heads up that I'm going to try to get more regular here with my posts ... again ... and hopefully this time I'll stick to it.

I also want to point out that I've added a Pay Pal Donate button. Granted this blog costs me nothing but money is tight these days and I just can't buy new scores/soundtracks as I would like. So if you want to donate I can promise that the money will go towards buying new stuff which I will then post here.

I'm getting a bunch of stuff ready to upload right now so keep your eye on this space. I'll be adding this stuff over the next few days and I'll be posting in general on a regular basis (knock on wood).

Cheers and enjoy!
