Blood on the Tracks Episode 10: The Hammer Scores of James Bernard.

January 31st, 2018


This time out on Blood on the Tracks Lee found himself busy and hurting for a topic before the month came to a close. He happened to be watching "Taste the Blood of Dracula" and a subject for the episode came to mind: the Hammer scores of James Bernard. At times his pieces were big and bombastic, at other times subtle and creepy, and even flowery and romantic, thus he envoked both power and foreboding meanace, as well as heart to the classic films he scored. Due to time constraints and sourcing issues, the majority of this playlist will feature mostly the main title tracks of these films and suites that Lee didn't have a complete track listings for.


--"The Quatermass Xperiment" (1955)
--Excerpts from "X: The Unknown" (1956)
--"Quatermass 2" (1957)
--"The Curse of Frankenstein" (1957)
--Main Titles and The Legend of the Hound from "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (1959)

January 8th, 2018


Lee and Daniel kick off 2018 with the western/noir "Bad Day at Black Rock" (1955), directed by John Sturges. The boundries Sturges pushes against with the material relative to the time the film was made are discussed, as well as just what an amazing collection of talent is shown on screen. Also covered: a listener comment (sort of) and a lengthy discussion about what they've watched as of late (the actual film review starts about a half hour into the episode).

Our next episode will be our best first time movie watches in 2017. Want to contribute? Email your list either via text or an attached .mp3 to ...or leave it on the wall of the They Must Be Destroyed On Sight! Facebook group.
