BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985
Re-Rip Newly Remastered
Originally I posted the US 7″ on August 22, 2011. Since that time I obtained the Netherlands 12″ which sounds much better. I decided since it is the Halloween season that I would rip the 12″ and post it. I am also posting this track in 24 bit flac for the very first time.
“Fright Night” is the theme song from the 1985 film of the same name performed by American rock group J. Geils Band. 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.
