Dr.Chris Record Spotlight The Empire Strikes Back

Posted in 80s, music, sci-fi, StarWars, vinyl with tags , , , on May 4, 2018 by chrisdsav

It has been over a year since I did a record spotlight. Wow ….There honestly is no exscuse well in honor of Star Wars day we say May the 4th Be with you and well be doing TWO of these a month. Yup and what better sound track to start than THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.

Composed by the amazing John Willaims for George Lucas and directed by Irvin Kirshner, its considered the best Star Wars films. Albeit to argue one of the best films of all time. The most iconic score on the soundtrack is the Imperial March and Yodas theme. Below you can some ome liner notes that were included with records at the time and as of today some stilk have them. This was pre internet. Today you can just look at pictures of Star Wars when ever you want. I had to include that awesome picture of Boba Fett and Darth Vader talking to each other about the fate of Han Solo. Fett was such a minor character in this film but so awesome they had to out him in this cool full color image in side the album.

My copy was found at a flea market in Fitchburg Ma. along with a mint copy of the original soundtrack. I also found soundtracks to Star Trek 1 and 2. The record it self is in MINT condition the sleeve however is a bit roughed up as you can see in the image above. You get both classic posters for the film on the front and back.

I love how the hiss of the vinyl and the an ticipation of Williams iconic score really brings this album to life.

I can’t reccomend this enough and its been rereleased a few times so tracking one down should not be hard.

Dr.Chris Record Spotlight: Castlevania II Simon’s Quest

Posted in 80s, Dracula, entertainment, Monsters, music, vampires, Video Games, vinyl with tags , , , on July 7, 2017 by chrisdsav

It has been a long long time since I did one of these. I figured with the new anime show out now it be time to do another of the Castlevania records. I don’t have three yet which is what the new Netflix show is based on.  It’s on Netflix now check it out, the show is four epsiodes. 

The music is what you expect from the game. Not every one loves this game it’s the most controversial of the CASTLEVANIA games. The music was still spot on matching the gothic nature of the franchise fighting your way thru Dracula castle.

The soundtrack was composed by Kenichi Matsubara, who later created music for the Castlevania arcade title Haunted Castle.  Haunted is considered to be a very very difficult game to beat. 

The NES version of the sound track is on side A the Famicon version on side B. There are major difference between the two. I’m not a music expert but I do like scoree from both. 

The art for the album is by Eric Powell. I love the map of Castlevania in  the middle of the sleeve when you unfold it . If your a huge Castlevania fan like I am you want to pick this up and the other sound tracks Mondo was selling them I’m not sure if they are sold out of the special edtions but you can get the regular black vinyl here

Dr.Chris Record Spotlight presents: SCREAM

Posted in horror, vinyl with tags , , , , on January 31, 2017 by chrisdsav

WOW it has been months since I did one of these I realized and I wanted to do one to start the new year weeks ago but never got around to it. SO the last day of January I decided to start again, this time with an album that I picked up back in October SCREAM in fact its actually the sound track to Scream 1 and 2. Both films were directed by the late great Wes Craven and composed by Marco Beltrami.  The music from the Scream franchise was instrumental in launching the career of Marco Beltrami, who is now one of the most popular composers in Hollywood. This really shows he can do that music we love to hear in a Wes Craven Horror movies, its soft at times we need to be and twisted and speeds up for a good fight and chase scenes. I never found Scream to be scary but I wont denigh I loved the films and their music was always great.

The record comes in a slip cover with Gorgeous art by Gary Pullin, more on his amazing art can be found here. Gary Pullin Facebook Page

The art reminds me of the cover to Friday the 13th Part 8 with Jason over looking New York city. I tried to recreate this for a office function once with Jason over looking our building like he does NY City.  I was told by HR to take it down…..the precious butterfly’s of the office might be OFFENDED. I digress. If you look closely you can see Drew Barrymore character hanging from the tree like in the opening of SCREAM.

The vinyl it self is white to match Ghost Face mask. A Bone White’ 180 gram colored vinyl. The record when the needle hits really puts me into the film itself and when it comes to Horror Soundtracks this is the best way for me to listen to them, not on Itunes or on cd even. My only complaint is the Chase begins from the first Scream is not here. Also the cardboard it comes in can be damaged very very easily so be careful how you handle it. Mine has a few creases already. The price tag on this is not bad it will fetch you between 20-25 on amazon or ebay. Pick it up if your a horror soundtrack collector.
