Blood For Dracula & Flesh For Frankenstein

Today I present the scores to BLOOD FOR DRACULA (aka Andy Warhol's Dracula) and FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN (aka Andy Warhol's Frankenstein). Both movies were made back to back around 1973/1974 by director Paul Morrissey and both are scored by Claudio Gizzi.

These two films have achieved cult status long ago and thanks to home video (especially the DVD format) they are readily accessible in proper widescreen uncut versions. So there isn't much that I can say that hasn't already been said but the one thing that I want to mention is this: why oh why do the "critics" always point out the Dracula film as the superior of the two? I simply don't understand it myself for it is very clear to me that the Frankenstein film is the superior film. Now don't get me wrong, I love them both, but there is something about the Frankenstein movie that just endears it to me. I think it boils down to the level of excess present in the Frankenstein film. Both movies have it but Frankenstein has more of it. The cinematography is more lush in general, the blood and gore is way over-the-top, Udo Kier's performance of the Baron is simply brilliant with constant wonderful moments that simply can't be matched by his performance of The Count (although the blood vomiting "The blood of these whores is killing me" part in Dracula comes close) and both films have a level of "sleaze" to them but again Frankenstein outdoes Dracula in this regard. So to the critics I say this: you are wrong! Although both are wonderful FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN is clearly the better of the two!

The CD release (seen above) came out in 1993 on the RCA label (catalog code RCA Records OST 119) and although it is a single CD it contains both scores. The music itself is not what you might expect for two outrageously over-the-top films filled with such oddness. Although I enjoy soundtrack music I am no music critic nor do I possess enough study/knowledge of music to be able to describe it well but this is simply put beautiful music. The very first track alone is one of the most sad yet touching pieces of music I've ever heard and captures the mood of BLOOD FOR DRACULA perfectly. It is a crying shame that this CD is now out-of-print.

Starting with this post I will be making both a MP3 version as well as a lossless FLAC version available for download. In the past I have always only done MP3 but I have almost everything I have posted to date in both FLAC and MP3 so today I will do both and slowly over time I will eventually go back to the older postings and add FLAC versions as well for your download pleasure.

As per my usual methods the CD was ripped with EAC to the FLAC format. I then used foobar2000 to create the 320 CBR MP3 version. Both downloads include the EAC made LOG file and CUE Sheet file. Both include high quality artwork scans.

Both scores are by Nico Fidenco and are together on a single CD that was released in 1996 by Lucertola Media (catalog code "LMCD 006"). Please note that the USA release of ZOMBI HOLOCAUST (affectionately known as DR. BUTCHER M.D. - MEDICAL DEVIATE) has a completely different score that was put in place by the American distributor and that is NOT present on this CD release (nor am I aware of it ever being made available).

Below are the front and back of the CD booklet and as you can tell it is designed so you can flip it to showcase the cover that you prefer (it comes shipped with the top image as the front):

Please note that I originally ripped this using EAC (Exact Audio Copy) to the FLAC audio format then I used foobar2000 to convert the FLAC audio files to MP3 files. I used LAME 3.98.2 with the "-b 320" setting which basically creates a 320kbps CBR MP3 file which is the highest quality MP3 that can be made. I have included the LOG and CUE files from EAC so that you know the ripping was done correctly and of course this facilitates burning back to a standard music CD if you so wish. I also threw in a M3U playlist file.

Also included in the download are large TIFF images of the CD artwork along with smaller JPG images (such as the cover presented above) plus I embedded the smaller JPG image into each track so that you get a nice thumbnail image on your software/hardware player.

Dario Argento's OPERA

Dario Argento's OPERA aka TERROR AT THE OPERA (1987) is a movie that I consider his swan song. It is (to date) the last great Argento film and one where he seemingly tried to cram in all his trademarks from the convoluted storyline with a memory of a past event that isn't 100% clear to the wild kinetic camera work with some nice murder set-pieces for us gore hounds to the music ... this time by Goblin member Claudio Simonetti (along with a whole host of other composers and even some classical music).

There are basically two versions of the soundtrack and I present them both now for your enjoyment.

The first is a Japanese release (Cinevox SLCS 7156) that surprisingly has none of the Claudio Simonetti music on it but has most of the other music from the film including two great tracks by Bill Wyman & Terry Taylor and like the soundtrack to PHENOMENA this is the best stuff in the movie.

The following applies to both of the OPERA downloads: Please note that I originally ripped this using EAC (Exact Audio Copy) to the FLAC audio format then I used foobar2000 to convert the FLAC audio files to MP3 files. I used LAME 3.98.2 with the "-b 320" setting which basically creates a 320kbps CBR MP3 file which is the highest quality MP3 that can be made. I have included the LOG and CUE files from EAC so that you know the ripping was done correctly and of course this facilitates burning back to a standard music CD if you so wish. I also threw in a M3U playlist file.

I've also included "custom made" artwork for the covers. This is due to the fact that I lost the artwork and case to the Japanese release (thankfully though I didn't lose the CD itself) and of course the Anchor Bay release came with no standard CD artwork as it came in a DVD style box. The images above are what I came up with so I hope you all like what I made. I'm no graphic designer LOL

Please enjoy and
until next time ... listen until your ear's bleed !!!

*** UPDATE ***
As of July 28, 2010 I added links to Lossless FLAC versions. Enjoy!

Lambero Bava's DEMONS & DEMONS 2

In 1985 Lambero Bava, son of the great Mario Bava, hit a home run with the film DEMONS aka DEMONI and then again (though to a lesser extent) in 1987 with DEMONS 2. Today I present you with two different soundtracks to the first film and the (singular) soundtrack to the second film.

DEMONS (Standard Version)
First up is what I call the standard edition of DEMONS. This version has several "rock" songs that were used in the movie along with original music by Claudio Simonetti. Now I found this on a private bit torrent website and no real information was given about it but what I find interesting is that no such version exists that is as "complete" as this is. There was a Japanese CD release (super duper mega rare) and then another CD on an Italian label. My guess is that this is a compilation of sorts made from those two CD releases. I say that because the sound quality is excellent so it appears to be from CD quality audio yet again no single CD exists that has all of these tracks. Here is the track list:

01. DEMON (Claudio Simonetti)
02. WALKING ON THE EDGE (Rick Springfield)
03. OUT OF TIME (Claudio Simonetti)
04. SAVE OUR SOULS (Motley Crue)
05. THE EVIL ONE (Claudio Simonetti)
06. KILLING (Claudio Simonetti)
07. NIGHT DANGER (Pretty Maids)
08. WE CLOSE OUR EYES (Go West)
09. SEND MY HEART (The Adventures)
10. WHITE WEDDING (Billy Idol)
11. THREAT (Claudio Simonetti)
12. CRUEL DEMON (Claudio Simonetti)
13. FAST AS A SHARK (Accept)
14. EVERYBODY UP (Saxon)
15. DEMON (REPRISE) (Claudio Simonetti)
16. DEMON (SIMONETTI HORROR PROJECT) (Claudio Simonetti)
17. DEMON (DAEMONIA LIVE AT PROGWEST) (Claudio Simonetti)
18. DEMON (SINGLE EDIT) (Claudio Simonetti)

Again I did not make this but the quality is very good. The audio files are 320 CBR MP3 and I've included a M3U playlist file and there is a nice 500x500 "thumbnail" image (same as what I've posted here). All in all a very welcome release and kudos to whomever put this together.

Download DEMONS (Standard Version) - 320 CBR MP3

Please note that the file is a compressed RAR file and will need to be decompressed with something like WinRAR or WinZIP etc.


DEMONI (Claudio Simonetti Expanded Version)
Next up is a CD that was released in 2003 but is already sadly out-of-print. This is on an Italian label called DEEP RED with catalog code "Deep Red CD DR 002" and while this does not include any of the "rock" songs it does include all of the Claudio Simonetti music including some tracks not on the first CD posted above (the so-called standard version). Here is the track list:

01. Demon (05:40)
02. Cruel demon (01:07)
03. Killing (03:13)
04. Threat (01:35)
05. The evil one (02:03)
06. Out of time (04:07)
07. Demon (Reprise) (01:40)
08. Demon (Original demo version) (05:05)
09. Killing (Original demo version) (05:04)
10. Demon (Original demo played on piano) (04:14)
11. Demon (Simonetti horror project version) (04:35)
12. Demon (Daemonia live) (05:26)
Live at ProgWest Festival - Los Angeles - Novembre, 9th - 2002

Now this is another CD Rip that I got off of the internet but this was ripped with EAC and comes with the EAC made LOG file and CUE Sheet file. I've also included a M3U playlist file. Also included are high quality scans of the CD artwork and a small 600x600 "thumbnail" image (same as what I've posted here).

Downloads:
DEMONI (Claudio Simonetti Expanded Version) - 320 CBR MP3
DEMONI (Claudio Simonetti Expanded Version) - Lossless FLAC

Please note that the file is a compressed RAR file and will need to be decompressed with something like WinRAR or WinZIP etc.


DEMONS 2 - THE NIGHTMARE CONTINUES
Last but not least I present the soundtrack to DEMONS 2 - THE NIGHTMARE CONTINUES. This is another 320 CBR MP3 download I got from a private bit torrent website. Again the information was pretty non existent about this but given the excellent sound quality and the track listing it seems clear to me that this is taken from the Japanese CD release with catalog code "Apollon BY 32 40" (a 2000 release that is now sadly out-of-print). This is similar to the "standard version" of DEMONS in that it is primarily "rock" songs with some original music (this time by Simon Boswell). Here is the track list:

01. Demonica (Simon Boswell)
02. Rain (The Cult)
03. Backbeat (The Art Of Noise)
04. Heartache (Gene Loves Jezebel)
05. Life In T.V. (The Producers)
06. Blue Heart (Peter Murphy)
07. Sally's Garage (Caduta Massi)
08. Panic (The Smiths)
09. Demon's Groove (Simon Boswell)
10. Power (Fields Of The Nephilim)
11. De Profundis (Dead Can Dance)
12. Kundalini Express (Love And Rockets)
13. Blood And Fame (Caduta Massi)
14. How It Shone (Pierce Turner)

Again I did not make this but the quality is very good. The audio files are 320 CBR MP3 and I've included a M3U playlist file and there is a nice 500x500 "thumbnail" image (same as what I've posted here).

Download DEMONS 2 - THE NIGHTMARE CONTINUES - 320 CBR MP3

Please note that the file is a compressed RAR file and will need to be decompressed with something like WinRAR or WinZIP etc.

I hope you enjoy this triple helping of DEMONS and
until next time ... listen until your ear's bleed !!!

NON HO SONNO (aka SLEEPLESS)

Today I bring you the soundtrack to Dario Argento's NON HO SONNO aka SLEEPLESS (2001) with music by Goblin. This is a CD that came out in 2001 by Cinevox (catalog code: CD MDF 342 DK). This is a very special re-union of sorts as this features, for the first time in a long time, the classic Goblin line-up of Agostino Marangolo, Fabio Pignatelli, Claudio Simonetti and Massimo Morante. Unfortunately they managed only to get this one soundtrack done before breaking up yet again (the band still exists but with a slightly different line-up that most noticeably does not include Claudio Simonetti).

First let me say that this cannot hold a candle to the old stuff. This is no masterpiece ala Suspiria or Profondo Rosso. Having said that it is very solid and still has that Goblin sound and is overall a very good score. While not as good as "the old stuff" it is still very good and a definite must for all Goblin fans.

Here is the track listing courtesy of the Soundtrack Collector website:

The Cat O' Nine Tails

Previously I had posted the scores to Dario Argento's THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE and FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET (both by Ennio Morricone). Well finally I am now completing what is called Argento's Animal Trilogy by posting the 2nd film IL GATTO A NOVE CODE aka THE CAT O' NINE TAILS (1970 or 1971 depending on the source). Again this score is by the great Ennio Morricone and this CD is the 2006 release by GDM (catalog code: GDM CD Club 7037) which is the longest version of this great score and is considered to be complete.

Please note that I originally ripped this using EAC (Exact Audio Copy) to the FLAC audio format then I used foobar2000 to convert the FLAC audio files to MP3 files. I used LAME 3.98.2 with the "-b 320" setting which basically creates a 320kbps CBR MP3 file which is the highest quality MP3 that can be made. I have included the LOG and CUE files from EAC so that you know the ripping was done correctly and of course this facilitates burning back to a standard music CD if you so wish. I also threw in a M3U playlist file.

Also included in the download are large TIFF images of the CD artwork along with smaller JPG images (such as the cover presented above) plus I embedded the smaller JPG image into each track so that you get a nice thumbnail image on your software/hardware player.

Here is the track listing courtesy of the Soundtrack Collector website:

01. Ninna nanna in blu (titoli) (02:36)
02. 1970 (08:38)
03. Sottintesi (02:18)
04. Parabola del paradosso (02:54)

I also threw in a M3U playlist file.

Buio Omega


Today I present the GOBLIN soundtrack to the Joe D'Amato movie BUIO OMEGA (1979) aka BEYOND THE DARKNESS. The CD is a 2008 Cinevox release (catalog code CD MDF 631) and is the most complete version of the score ever released.

For some reason this doesn't yet exist on the SOUNDTRACK COLLECTOR website but I have requested that it be added. I'm not going to bother to list the tracks because they all have pretty much the same name (see image above).

Please note that I originally ripped this using EAC (Exact Audio Copy) to the FLAC audio format then I used foobar2000 to convert the FLAC audio files to MP3 files. I used LAME 3.98.2 with the "-b 320" setting which basically creates a 320kbps CBR MP3 file which is the highest quality MP3 that can be made.

I also threw in a M3U playlist file.

Alien Contamination


Today I am posting the GOBLIN score to the Luigi Cozzi film ALIEN CONTAMINATION (1980) aka CONTAMINATION. The version I have is the 1996 Cinevox Japanese CD release (catalog code SLCS-7148) which has a total of 11 tracks and is the complete soundtrack but I suppose I should point out that there is a 2000 Cinevox Italian CD release that has 5 bonus tracks which are basically alternate takes of existing cues as opposed to all new never before heard music. One thing that is a bit interesting is that the GOBLIN line-up has changed through out the years but most of us think of Claudio Simonetti, Agostino Marangolo, Massimo Morante and Fabio Pignatelli. This is the core group that did Profondo Rosso, Suspiria, Dawn Of The Dead and Non Ho Sonno aka Sleepless (their short lived reunion). Also all but Marangolo were together for Tenebre and Phenomena was at the very least Simonetti and Pignatelli (I have never been able to get a complete list of GOBLIN members for this release but I suspect it wasn't just these two). I have no intimate knowledge of the band or their process of creating music but I always got the sense that Simonetti was one of the driving forces if not THE man in the group. He is the only one (to the best of my knowledge) that ever did anything of note outside of GOBLIN (i.e., he scored several movies including various scores for several Dario Argento productions such as DEMONS, OPERA, THE CARD PLAYER and LA TERZA MADRE). However interestingly enough the CONTAMINATION score is missing Mr. Simonetti yet seems no worse for his exclusion and somewhat surprisingly (at least to me) I have heard many GOBLIN fans call this their favorite album by the group. While I agree that this is a damn fine score I wouldn't go so far to call it their best and in case you are curious my personal favorite is DAWN OF THE DEAD although I will concede that SUSPIRIA is truly a masterpiece and their best work yet I find myself listening to DAWN OF THE DEAD more than any other GOBLIN album. In fact now might be a good time to mention that I have compiled a complete CD collection of all George A. Romero soundtracks and will probably be posting them all (along with DAWN OF THE DEAD of course) sometime next month. However back to THIS post which is CONTAMINATION ...

Please note that I originally ripped this using EAC (Exact Audio Copy) to the FLAC audio format then I used foobar2000 to convert the FLAC audio files to MP3 files. I used LAME 3.98.2 with the "-b 320" setting which basically creates a 320kbps CBR MP3 file which is the highest quality MP3 that can be made.

BRAINDEAD aka DEAD/ALIVE

So far I've only posted soundtracks that I own myself and have ripped myself. This is partly due to the fact that I have a nice selection to work with and I am a bit of a quality nut. In other words if I do the ripping myself I know it has been done properly. However I can't own everything that is ultra cool so today I am presenting something that I found on my internet travels: The soundtrack to the Peter Jackson film BRAINDEAD aka DEAD/ALIVE (1992) with music by Peter Dasent. I recently came across a nice CDRip of this score and I couldn't be happier as this one has eluded me for years.

The CD in question is a German release with catalog code "QDK Media CD 006" and was released back in 1992. Oddly enough I have a few other CD soundtracks on this same German label but was never able to track down this particular CD release by them. They must not have made very many of them.

The download I got was in the APE format which is a lossless format similar to the FLAC format (which is how I always rip my CD discs). As per my usual methods I have created 320kbps CBR MP3 files
which are the highest quality one can make for the MP3 format. No EAC type LOG file nor CUE Sheet file here. I did create a M3U playlist file. I have also included the original scan which is a very high quality JPEG of the CD artwork (digipack packaging). I then created a cover only image (as seen above) plus I embedded this cover only image into each track so that you get a nice thumbnail image on your software/hardware player.

Here is the track listing courtesy of the Soundtrack Collector website:

01. The Stars and Moon (03:31)
by Peter Dasent & Jane Lindsay - performed by Kate Swadling
02. Sumatra 1957 (03:23)
03. Braindead Theme (02:34)
04. Grandmother's Kitchen (01:57)
05. At the Zoo (01:56)
06. The Throb (01:52)

11. The Death of Mum (01:35)
12. 29 Steps to my Baby's Door (But I lose Count at 24) (02:23)

DELLAMORTE DELLAMORE aka CEMETERY MAN

Today we have the soundtrack to the Michele Soavi film DELLAMORTE DELLAMORE aka CEMETERY MAN (1994) with music by Manuel De Sica. This film is easily Soavi's masterpiece and the last of the great Italian horror films (unless Argento surprises us since but his output post OPERA aka TERROR AT THE OPERA has been lackluster). The version I present today is a 1995 release by GDM Music (catalog code GDM 2004).

Please note that I originally ripped this using EAC (Exact Audio Copy) to the FLAC audio format then I used foobar2000 to convert the FLAC audio files to MP3 files. I used LAME 3.98.2 with the "-b 320" setting which basically creates a 320kbps CBR MP3 file which is the highest quality MP3 that can be made.

TENEBRE

Today I present you with the soundtrack to the Dario Argento film TENEBRE (1982) with music by GOBLIN ... well sort of (note that their names are listed on the CD artwork as opposed to the GOBLIN name). Despite that this basically is often contributed to GOBLIN since it is three of the four usual members. The score is a bit heavy on synthesizers with more electric "fake" drums than real drums (if it even has real drums which I think it does not) but it still manages to be a great soundtrack although it is a different experience from say PROFONDO ROSSO or DAWN OF THE DEAD or SUSPRIA etc.

This is the 1996 release by Cinevox with catalog code CD MDF 302 and is billed as "The Complete Original Motion Picture Sound Track" although Cinevox just very recently (within the last 2 years or so) did a re-release with a different catalog number BUT that re-release is exactly the same other than the packaging. The song list is the same and knowing Cinevox it is the exact same master used for this CD release I am posting now. One last thing I should note: the film is known as SHADOW in Japan and I believe that SHADOW is the literal English translation of the Italian word TENEBRE (sometimes spelled TENEBRAE) yet it was released in the USA with the original Italian title. Go figure.

Please note that I originally ripped this using EAC (Exact Audio Copy) to the FLAC audio format then I used foobar2000 to convert the FLAC audio files to MP3 files. I used LAME 3.98.2 with the "-b 320" setting which basically creates a 320kbps CBR MP3 file which is the highest quality MP3 that can be made.

02. Gemini (03:08)
03. Slow Circus (02:28)
04. Lesbo (05:13)

PHENOMENA or Aren't Insects Ultra Cool?

Today I present you with the soundtrack to the Dario Argento film PHENOMENA (1985) aka CREEPERS. There are two different versions of this soundtrack and I am including both of them here for your enjoyment.

PHENOMENA - The Standard Various Artists edition
This is the version that has "all" of the music and this release is the 1987 release by Cinevox (catalog code CD-CIA 5062). This CD includes tracks by Goblin as well as a variety of other artists. My favorite track from this film is VALLEY by Bill Wyman and Terry Taylor.

Here is the track listing courtesy of the Soundtrack Collector website:

01. Phenomena (04:24) by Claudio Simonetti
02. Flash of the Blade (04:08) by Iron Maiden
03. Jennifer (03:50) by Goblin

Both of the PHENOMENA CD rips presented here were originally ripped using EAC (Exact Audio Copy) to the FLAC audio format then I used foobar2000 to convert the FLAC audio files to MP3 files. I used LAME 3.98.2 with the "-b 320" setting which basically creates a 320kbps CBR MP3 file which is the highest quality MP3 that can be made. I have included the LOG and CUE files from EAC so that you know the ripping was done correctly and of course this facilitates burning back to a standard music CD if you so wish. I also threw in a M3U playlist file.

I have also included high quality TIFF images of the CD covers as well as smaller JPG images. Also the MP3 files have thumbnail images embedded which should show up in most software and some hardware players.

Remember that there are two different download links and each is for THAT version and THAT version alone. Please feel free to download both to add to your collection.
