Format: Audio CD
This is the first time the soundtrack for this (ahem...) semi-legendary 1971 British horror/biker flick has been released. Devotees of those late-night showings of laughably poor horror films on ITV or BBC will be no doubt be familiar with this 'item' but I won't enlighten those in the dark. Suffice to say, it never won a BAFTA (or whatever it is they had back then).
However, this music bought to you all here by Trunk is a whole different kettle of frogs. It was composed and recorded by John Cameron (the man also responsible for the excellent "Kes" soundtrack) using a collection of session musicians and assorted jazzers. The tracks themselves are mainly instrumental and can only be described as an eclectic mixture of 60's pre-punk garage-band, dark-edged psychedelia, and blaxplotation-style funk, all seasoned with subtle touches of ecclesiastical music and even (heaven help us) a dash of early prog. But it all gels very well to produce a dark and disturbing artefact.
Ok, true, the week this was recorded, the local guitar shop must have been having a special offer on fuzz, overdrive and, most noticeably, wah-wah pedals, because the music here is SATURATED in those tools of the gutarist's trade. But those who like their music acoustic and a little more gentle are not totally forgotten, because in the middle is a hippy-ish funeral song that is rather drippy, but should be seen as a product of its time.
And (as stated in the brief liner notes)the audio quality does suffer in places, but it's not too bad at all, considering it was compiled from old & deteriorating analogue tapes.
Despite this, it mostly works pretty well and I'd even say that the music is light-years better than the film it was made for.
So, if you're a fan of musical oddities or a collector of the more off-the-wall, weirder soundtracks, then this will keep you as happy as a very happy thing indeed.

Wow. I've loved the soundtrack to this uniquely loopy old film (available on DVD in the USA!) ever since I first heard it and it's one that I've been checking the net for a release of on-and-off for years - and here it is, finally! Good to know I wasn't the only one, then! :)
I approached this disc with some trepidation because I already owned the soundtrack CD to "The Wicker Man", released on the same label, and was very disappointed with that because it was recorded directly from the film's final mix, with sound effects, dialogue, noises off, etc - i.e. nothing you couldn't have done yourself by sampling the movie. Thankfully, this time, the producers have somehow managed to track down the original masters and this CD is the real deal. A couple of tracks have still been taken from the final mix (the graveside ballad "Riding Free", for example) presumably because the masters could not be found - but the vast majority of this CD is taken from the original session recordings, and therefore includes bits that didn't make it into the film, alternative takes, etc. Sound quality can be a bit iffy in places, but these are "lost" recordings from over 30 years ago - and, as the sleeve notes rather amusingly say: "Don't worry about it - life's too short!" I'll second that, and add a big thanks to Trunk Records for releasing this tripped-out gem - another one I can cross off my all-time "I wish they'd release that" list! :)
OK, Trunk Records, howzabout soundtracks for The Omega Man, or Blood on Satan's Claw next? Pretty please?

Full marks to Trunk Records for unearthing this classic. A rave from the grave that would have remained unknown were it not for Jonny Trunk breathing new life into it.
What a spooky record!! When I first listend to this I was pleased to be able to turn it over as it gave me a chance to catch my breath.
This is a soundtrack to one of those movies I saw late at night years ago when I should have been in bed! Black and white, terrible production values and absurd plot its the sort of film that makes late sixties British cinema great. It involves zombie bikers which is something that can't be said of many films.
But the soundtrack is a totally different kettle of frogs!
Written by John Cameron who also wrote the sublime music to Kes (also on Trunk Records) and whose name you will see on any number of Library Music compliations as well as on the Sound Gallery compilation, this piece of music is anything but easy listening.
In the sleeve notes Cameron admits that he threw in every trick he could think of - and it worked.
Spectral organ sounds, fuzz guitars, reverb, echo, delay, wordless singing - there is a very close, heavy feel to the tracks. To be honest it really creeps me out! But then that's exactly what good horror music should do.
Very recommended - just don't listen by yourself in the dark.

A classic soundtrack that you will immediately recorgnise as soon as you play it!! Brings back memories, as I saw the movie several times after recording it as a child. I only wish that the DVD was available in Region 1.
