In 1979, inspired by the massive success of both "Saturday Night Fever" and "The Godfather" movies, shock comedian Rudy Ray Moore created DISCO GODFATHER, as a black-POV parody of the disco phenomenon. Disco Godfather is a classic Blaxploitation movie about an ex-cop, with a talent for both martial arts and jive, who sets out to fight the PCP epidemic taking over his neighborhood. Directed by J. Robert Wagoner, the film is starring Rudy Ray Moore (who also co-produced the film) and established genre actress Carol Speed. Already a legendary X-rated comedy star by the 1970’s, Rudy Ray Moore later transitioned into movies. With the money he earned performing at clubs he financed DOLEMITE (1975) which would turn out to be his most iconic and successful film. Moore returned to performing stand-up during the '80s and '90s and gained a new fan base when rappers like Snoop Dogg and Busta Rhymes began sampling his records and hailing him as “the Godfather of Rap” for his use of rhymes in dialogue. In 2018 (10 years after Moore’s death), it was announced that Craig Brewer (Hustle and Flow) would direct the upcoming biographical-dramedy “Dolemite Is My Name “about Rudy Ray Moore. The Netflix film will star Eddie Murphy as Rudy, other cast members will include Wesley Snipes and Chris Rock. Every cool film needs a cool soundtrack, so the movie’s producers turned to the band “Juice People Unlimited” to crank out a funky disco flavor bomb. This studio band consisted of many noted musicians, including legendary drummer James Gadsen (one of the most recorded drummers in R&B music, having played on hundreds of hit records); bass player David Shields (Smokey Robinson, Patti Labelle, Gloria Gaynor); guitarist Paul Jackson Jr. (The Temptations, The Pointer Sisters, Bobby Womack); guitarist Wali Ali (Rick James, Marvin Gaye) & percussionist Melvin Webb (The Gap Band, Janet Jackson). The funky tunes on this album were written and arranged by the legendary Ernie Fields Jr., recognized for his baritone sax work with such iconic artists as Marvin Gaye, Rick James and Freddie Hubbard. Fields’ other credits include working as a session musician for (as well as touring with) Fred Wesley in the 1990s … and more recently his involvement as a music contractor for American Idol, The Voice and X Factor. Delivering four lengthy tracks (including trippy sound effects and slurry nasally vocals), the band succeeds in capturing the essence of the movies’ message and concept perfectly. With distinct nods to the drug hallucination sequences depicted in the film, the repetitive funky disco groove reflects a state of trance that fits the imagery on the film like a glove. The original (and never before reissued) 1979 vinyl soundtrack has become a highly sought-after album due to its incredibly high caliber of respected studio performers and collaborators. Collectors will shelve out a hefty amount for an original copy. Strange Disc Records now proudly presents a deluxe vinyl reissue (1000 copies) containing an insert with unseen pictures and extensive & exclusive liner notes. Released exclusively for Record Store Day (UK & Europe) 2019, available in participating stores on April 13.
Elm Street Group, The & Robert Englund - Freddy's Greatest Hits
Elm Street Group, The & Robert Englund
Freddy's Greatest Hits
LP | 2019 | US | Original (Strange Disc)
29,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Movies / TV
Originally released in 1987, now back available on vinyl. Featuring Robert Englund as the voice of Freddy. Limited Classic Black Vinyl pressing. Strange Disc Records presents FREDDY’S GREATEST HITS performed by THE ELM STREET GROUP & featuring ROBERT ENGLUND as Freddy Krueger.

Originally released in 1987 at the height of the Freddy craze (Freddy already had three movies under his belt, and a fourth on the way. Even by then, he was a veritable pop icon, as Americana as hot dogs). This record contains nine tracks, a mix of covers (from the likes of Wilson Pickett, The Everly Brothers & Sam the Sham and The Pharaohs) and original songs and instrumentals.

The album is everything you expect it to be: screaming 80's drum machines & distortion filled electric guitars being drowned out by synthesizers. Over the top of these songs is Robert Englund doing the voice (and manic laugh) of Freddy Kruger. The actual music-making was done by the “Elm Street Group”, who were actually much respected studio musicians working for RIC records. Featuring artists like ‘Kevin Kelly’ & ‘Alan Brewer’ who both contributed to Rick Wakeman’s soundtrack for ‘The Burning’.

This audible oddity can be called the ultimate ‘novelty’ album, mostly ignored upon the time of its release and now ironically fetching big $$$ on the second hand market, this album makes the perfect ‘guilty pleasure’ gift for the Holiday season. For ‘Nightmare On Elm Street’ collectors, Freddy fanatics or lovers of everything oddball.
Paul Mc Cullough - OST Night Of The Living Dead

OST Night Of The Living Dead
LP | 1982 | US | Reissue (Strange Disc)
26,99 €* 35,99 € -25%
Release:1982 / US – Reissue
Genre:Movies / TV
* Tom Savini’s take on George Romero’s masterpiece ‘Night Of The Living Dead’
* Soundtrack by Paul McCollough, released for the first time on vinyl
* Deluxe 2XLP set, limited black vinyl pressing (with obi strip)
* Also available as a limited color vinyl variant (350 copies Silver/Black Swirl) / Strange Disc Records proudly presents FOR THE FIRST TIME ON VINYL : Paul McCollough’s original soundtrack to Tom Savini’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1990).

Night Of The Living Dead (1990) is a remake of George Romero’s 1968 zombie classic of the same name. Directed by Tom Savini, the film stars iconic horror actors Tony Todd (Candyman), Tom Towles (Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer) & Bill Moseley (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre). Savini was initially hired to perform the special effects, but was persuaded to direct by Romero who also rewrote the original 1968 screenplay and gave his seal of approval.

Met with resistance at the time of release (expectancy levels were very high), nowadays the 1990 remake is appreciated by fans worldwide and has grown into a classic of its own. To quote the press: “Most remakes are horrible, and diverge so much from the original film…this version is so close to the original it’s scary”.

Scoring duties were handled by writer-composer-actor Paul McCollough (known for his work on Midnight, The Crazies, Santa Claws, etc). Whilst the original film was mostly stock soundtrack, the score in Savini’s version is more 'Carpenter-esque' and the synth provides some very eerie effects used brilliantly throughout out the film.

Paul delivers a frightening and disturbing (in all right ways) score here…giving it an atmosphere of creepy supernatural darkness and a feeling of impacting doom. Listener beware … you won't be able to listen to this without having to look behind your shoulder!

Now, for the first time on vinyl, Strange Disc records proudly presents a deluxe DOUBLE vinyl edition featuring Paul McCollough’s complete original score for Tom Savini’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1990). This release is available as a limited classic black vinyl edition (with obi strip) & as a color vinyl variant (Silver/Black Swirl Vinyl) limited to 350 copies.

Release:1981 / EU – Reissue

Strange Disc Records proudly presents the first ever vinyl reissue of a landmark Icelandic minimal Synth album: The Magnetics ‘A Historical Glimpse Of The Future’ (1981). The Magnetics were Jakob Magnússon and Alan Howarth, an intriguing international & iconic duo. Keyboard player Magnússon was an Icelander who already had an impressive jazz resume, while Howarth was making a name for himself as a Hollywood composer – in 1981, the same year that A Historical Glimpse of the Future was released, he also was involved in the soundtracks for two hit John Carpenter movies, Escape from New York and Halloween II. Both have been quite successful in their post-Magentics careers, Howarth with more soundtrack work (They Live, Big Trouble In Little China, Christine etc. ) and Magnússon with various jazz outfits. Jakob would end up working as the Icelandic ambassador to the UK during the 90’s. Throughout the fantastic A Historical Glimpse of the Future album you can hear the soundscapes people came to associate with the 1980s films scored by Carpenter/Howarth. Dark and moody material but with a strange twist as you can hear on the synth cover of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” & the old-timey cabaret-styled “I’m Getting Married Today”, two truly bizarre pieces that doesn’t seem to fit at all… and somehow by not fitting actually fits perfectly, which is the real story of A Historical Glimpse of the Future. Originally released in 1981 on WRT (and going for hefty amounts on the second hand market), Strange Disc Records proudly presents a deluxe vinyl reissue (1000 copies) containing an insert with extensive & exclusive liner notes from Jakob Magnússon himself. Released exclusively for Record Store Day (UK & Europe) 2019, available in participating stores on April 13.
