BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985
“Fright Night” is theme song from the 1985 film of the same name. The song reached #91 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in 1985. After the single release the group then disbanded.
The b-side “Boppin’ Tonight” is performed by the Fabulous Fontaines and is also featured in the film and on the very hard to find original soundtrack.
The movie is an American vampire comedy horror film directed by Tom Holland and starring William Ragsdale, Chris Sarandon, Stephen Geoffreys and Roddy McDowall. The film was orginally released on August 2, 1985.
Now 25 years later the film has been re-made starring Colin Farrell, so I thought it would fun to re-visit this classic. I had also originally posted this 7″ on the old Blogger site back in October of 2009 and decided it was worthy of a completely new rip using my brand new Ortofon 30 needle.
