AOR TREASURES - The Soundtracks Vol.5



More rarities, cool stuff.
Vol.5 and maybe the last for the moment.
It takes a lot time...

01 - Jude Cole - Back To School [Back To School - 1985]
"Back To School" movie melodic rockin' main theme, non Jude's album track.

02 - Meat Loaf - Blind Before I Stop [The Squeeze - 1987]
One of the 'big man' better tracks, blastin' and furious.

03 - Pat Benatar - Invincible (movie mix) [Legend Of Billie Jean - 1985]
The classic Pat , different mix for the movie, also known as 'vox mix version', hard to find.

04 - Foreigner - Crash And Burn [White Magic - 1994]
Foreigner's 'Crash And Burn' is part of the rare "White Magic" soundtrack, only appears as bonus in the band's "Mr Moonlight" japanese edition one year later.

05 - Alice Cooper - He's Back (movie mix) [Friday The 13th Part VI - 1986]
The one and only (except Dada project) track in Alice Cooper's career without rhythm guitar. This is the slightly different movie version. Funny lyrics.

06 - Clif Magness - Incommunicado [The Last Starfighter - 1984]
Unknown Clif Magness non album AOR song from a rare soundtrack press of the The Last Starfighter soundtrack.

07 - Animotion - Staring Down The Demons [Thrashin' - 1986]
Superbly written, infectious chorus, another non album track, from the megarare "Thrashin" OST.

08 - Billy Burnette - Brother To Brother [Gleaming The Cube - 1989]
Simply but effective, love this song! Very rare.

09 - Danny Hutton - Brand New Day [American Flyers - 1985]
More even rare is the "American Flyers" tune, great AOR-rocker, impossible to find disc.

10 - Brock & Davis - Hard Way [Just One Of The Guys - 1985]
Terrific Loverboy-style song, another hard to find soundtrack. (thanx Andy!)

11 - Red 7 - Heartbeat [Manhunter - 1986]
The atmospheric Red 7 track (produced by Richie Zito) is a weird exploration, without cymbals! Also heard in the Miami Vice series.

12 - Real Life - Send Me An Angel [The Wizard - 1989]
Maybe you don't like the Real Life new wave-AOR, but this is a great one with a crazy alien-keyboard arrangement, and after a couple of listens you'll find yourself singin' it in the shower.

13 - Gudrun Laos - Highway To Freedom [Die Stadtindianer - 1994]
A torch-song by Gudrun Laos, very rare, only released as a single (and in this TV-film BSO) in Germany.

14 - Alias - Perfect World (movie version) [Son In Law - 1992]
The number ones Alias (Freddy Curci) with a perfect non album track.

15 - Mickey Thomas - Sing [Sing - 1989]
The guy rocks here. Line-up: Peter Wolf (Starship): keyboards, bass / Michael Baird (Van Stephenson, Airborne): Drums / Vivian Campbell (Def Leppard): Guitars. WOW

16 - Lou Gramm Band (Shadow King) - One Dream [Highlander II - 1991]
'One Dream' is an anthemic, glorious melody recorded by Shadow King during their only album sessions, exclusive to this soundtrack. The studio decided re-name this as 'Lou Gramm Band', marketing priorities...
Listen Vivian Campbell's great playing.

17 - Rik Emmett - Saved By Love [Problem Child 2 - 1991]
Just love this music. Lovely song.

18 - The Power Station - We Fight For Love [Commando - 1985]
This Power Station's track never was released in any format. Only featured in the movie, this is the only official recording with Michael DesBarres on the mic. The source is from the original demo tapes (not ripped from the retail vhs or dvd). Anyway, you can hear Arnold at the beginning... Megarare track.


+ 70 min, vbr, artwork.
Note: most of tracks are vinyl-only release and very rare, all were decrackled and declicked to get the best quality possible.

Hey man absolutely awesome site. Phenomenal choice in track selection. Hey I've got a song that would fit perfect on your next comp from the movie Quiet Cool (1986) starring James Remar & Nick Cassavetes. It's the title track...the one when the credits roll...very John Farnham-ish or Stan Bush, or Tim Feehan. Email me at timidunicorn(at)gmail.com and I'll send it to you for the next compilation. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

The Power Station track 'We Fight For Love' appears on the 2005 version of the Power Station 20th anniversary disc. It is called 'Somewhere, Somehow, Someone's Gotta Pay'.

camelblue said...

That's correct.
This is the movie version, different mix & lengh

Shelly said...

I LOVE these comps, they really take me back! ;) Thanks for all your hard work!

Thank you very much for putting these up. I love the music, and as someone researching '80s movie music and John Farnham specifically it's invaluable. Also gets me through the day without killing my boss. Thank you!

Finanshall said...

looking through this AOR treasures series I couldn't find the absolutely amazing song by Kevin Chalfant called "Hold On To The Vision In Your Eyes" from the Never Retreat Never Surrender OST with JCVD! all the versions I've heard seemed to have been ripped off the movie (I know there were two theme songs to this movie, the version of the Joe Torono song from that movie I have is also of terrible quality) I know you gotta have them !!

camelblue said...

Hi Finanshall
Agree with you,"Hold On To The Vision In Your Eyes" is an absolute killer.
Sadly never was released in any media format.
All I have is the movie rip...not enough quality to be posted here.
Glad you like the compilations.

Absolutely fantastic to get all these cool stuff from different soundtracks! Brock & Davis from "Just One of the Guys" is just too good to be true. Amazing!

Cobra said...

Hi, I hate to be a pain in the ass, but could you redo the track Back to School? There seems to be some sort of weird audio glitch in the track when he says the first "lucky", listen to it and you'll hear, this is the best quality version on the internet except for that weird audio glitch, please fix it, thank you very much.

Cobra said...

Sorry, meant second time he says "lucky", in the line "you'll get lucky too", about 35-40 seconds in the song. Thanks.

Great post! Thank you very much!
