After a Halloween break Lee returns for more Blood on the Tracks. This month Lee looks at the soundtracks and scores from films that are about films, film making, or at least are in some way connected to this theme.

Blood on the Tracks Episode 27: Canadian Horror Part 3 - A Titanic Tundra Trauma Playlist.

August 30th, 2019

BotT.jpg

Part three of Lee's look into Canadian-made - or at least shot-in-Canada - horror is here. There's a lot more tracks and background info on the musicians and the films than in the previous two shows, and Lee has tried to better span the scope of Canadian horror, from the early days to more modern times, from low budget to much larger productions. Lee thinks this big list is pretty good, and he hopes you do too.

Playlist:

Blood on the Tracks Episode 26: Canadian Horror Part 2 - Rough and Rare.

July 31st, 2019

BotT.jpg

Lee is back to dive into part two of this three-part dive into the music from Canadian-made horror. This time out there's a focus on the early and the obscure. A lot of time was spent trying to source the music (some sources sounds a bit crappy), so the background info is a bit lighter in this episode.

Playlist:

--Sequence 1 from "The Mask" (1961) --Myron Schaeffer
--Water Bug from "Playgirl Killer" (1967) --Neil Sedaka
--La Diable est Parmi Nous from "Possession of Virginia" (1972) --Francois Cousineau

Blood on the Tracks Episode 25: Canadian Horror Part 1 - Suites to the Sweet.

June 30th, 2019

BotT.jpg

This month Lee is taking the first part of a multi-part dive into Canadian horror films. Of course, many horror (and other genre) films were made in Canada over the years in order to take advantage of the tax shelter incentives, so not everything on this episode can be considered entirely Canadian, but often Canadians filled most of the major creative roles in the films to be featured here and future installments, thus they get a pass.

But wait, there's more! This first part is going to focus on horror suites, so although you're getting fewer films and tracks featured here overall than you would in a regular BotT episode, you're still getting just as much music. Suites to the sweet!

Playlist:

--Silent Night & Evil Night from "Black Christmas" (1974) --Carl Zittrer
--The Shape of Rage from "The Brood" (1979) --Howard Shore
--Bleeding Hearts Still Beating Suite from "My Bloody Valentine" (1981) --Paul Zaza

Opening and closing music: Money Orgy from "Danger Diabolik" by Ennio Morricone & Main Theme from "The Horror of Dracula" by James Bernard.

Punksploitation! Is it a thing? Lee says it is, because he'll be damned if he's going to manage to re-record a new show from scratch before the month is over. Lee spins some of his favourite cuts from film soundtracks that (mostly) in some way use punk rockers, punk music, or some sort of other punk aesthetic in the film.

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.

Playlist:

--"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)
--Excerpts from "The Terror of the Tongs" (1961)
--Excerpts from "These Are the Damned", including Black Leather Rock (1962)
--"Kiss of the Vampire" (1963)
--"The Gorgon" (1964)
--"She" (1965)
--"Frankenstein Created Woman" (1967)
--"The Devil Rides Out" (1968)
--"Taste the Blood of Dracula" (1970)
--Finale and End Credits from "Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell" (1974)
