Based on an original play by Eddie Alford, Love In The Harbour is a moving musical dramatization of the romance between George McElroy, a British RAF Officer and Grace Guinan, a young Irish girl, who fight with the passion to preserve their love at a time of huge change and turmoil. This five-track EP with a bonus track features beautiful all-original music and lyrics, performed by London-based singer/songwriter Danielle Morgan and orchestra. Four of the tracks on this album are new compositions by Danielle Morgan and John Merrigan which are Love Me Hold Me (an instrumental), What About Me, Grace I’m In Love With You and Dogfight (another instrumental). Also, there is a bonus track that I had reviewed earlier I’m In Love With You. I was quite impressed with how this work was done with amazing vocals and instrumental performance as well as great songwriting and recording. I know the actual play would be something I would love to see.
Several months ago my wife and I went to the theatre to see the film Crawl, a 2019 American disaster horror film directed by Alexandre Aja and written by Michael and Shawn Rasmussen. We enjoyed this movie very much and when I received the soundtrack to this film, it brought back the memories of the film. Paramount originally released the original soundtrack album for this film with original music composed by Max Aruj and Steffen Thum and produced by Lorne Balfe. The soundtrack for this film was originally released on digital download and CD on July 12, 2020, and now it will be available on vinyl on March 6, 2020, through Rusted Wave Records. I was quite impressed with this nineteen track vinyl album with great songwriting from Race Day to Battle Plan to the final track Haley’s Theme with a great performance and an excellent job of recording. If you were a fan of the movie then go out and get the soundtrack either on CD and digital download and soon on vinyl as of March 6th from Rusted Wave Records, Amazon, and all outlets where music is sold. In closing, I wish to give a big thanks to Jonathan Dean and Wendy Ford with Wendy Ford Public Relations for the opportunity and honor of giving me the chance of listening to and reviewing this great soundtrack.
I was watching the follow-up to the motion picture Saturday Night Fever called Stayin’ Alive so I decided to review the vinyl album in my library which is the soundtrack to this movie released July 1983 on the RSO Records label. Side one of this 12 track album was five new songs by the Bee Gees such as The Woman In You, I Love You Too Much, Someone Belongs To Someone and more plus an edited version of Stayin’ Alive. Side two was all non Bee Gees tracks such as Frank Stallone (Sylvester Stallone’s brother) doing Far From Over, Look Out For Number one by Tommy Faragher, Finding Out The Hard Way by singer, dancer and actress Cynthia Rhodes and much more. All the songs on this soundtrack fitted the scenes in the movie perfectly. The soundtrack itself was well written, performed, recorded and produced plus it is a great addition to one’s soundtrack library. This album is still available on Vinyl, CD and digital download from Amazon, Discogs and everywhere music are sold.

For my Halloween album review, I decided to review The Rocky Horror Picture Show is the original soundtrack album to the 1975 film The Rocky Horror Picture Show released as an album in 1975 by Ode Records. I enjoyed the movie so I wanted to own this soundtrack with such tracks as Science Fiction/Double Feature by Richard O’Brien, Hot Patootie – Bless My Soul by Meatloaf and my favorite track Time Warp. This album was well written by Richard O’Brien and features performances by Tim Curry, Richard O’Brien, Susan Sarandon, Little Nell, Patricia Quinn, and the rest of the cast. It was also well recorded and produced by Richard Hartley. If there is an album you want to add to your collection for Halloween, this is the one. I own the regular album and the vinyl picture disc versions.
Crimes of Passion is an original soundtrack 1984 erotic thriller film directed by Ken Russell starring Kathleen Turner, Anthony Perkins, John Laughlin and Annie Potts. The music for this film was written and performed by former Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman and was released May 13, 1993, on the President Records label. With this soundtrack, you can hear Rick Wakeman’s unique style. I loved this soundtrack except for one thing. In my personal opinion, I was not impressed with the vocals on two songs sung by Maggie Bell. I feel that they could have used a better female vocalist on the songs It’s A Lovely Life and Dangerous Woman. I was impressed with such tracks as Eastern Shadows, Joanna, The Stretch, Paradise Lost, Web of Love and much more. This soundtrack was well written, performed, recorded and produced. I recommend you give this soundtrack a listen. It is available for purchase on Amazon, Discogs, and everywhere else where CD’s and digital downloads are available.
The Rift — Dark Side of the Moon is the soundtrack to an upcoming sci-fi/horror flick which features two interesting covers of songs from the classic Pink Floyd album that inspired the film’s name. The two Pink Floyd covers are Us And Them performed by the late Asia frontman John Wetton and Brain Damage performed XTC’s Colin Moulding and The Doors’ Robby Krieger. Among the other great tracks on this album are 1799 by Echolust, Dynamics Of Delirium by former Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman, I Ran (So Far Away) by A Flock Of Seagulls and much more. I enjoyed listening to this soundtrack from start to finish and was impressed on how well this album was written, recorded and produced. This album will be available September 1, 2017 on Cleopatra Records and can be purchased on Amazon and other places where CD’s and digital copies are sold.
Tonite Let’s All Make Love in London is the re-release of the soundtrack to the 1967 documentary featuring the music of Pink Floyd, Small Faces, Chris Farlowe and others. This album also features interview tracks by Mick Jagger, Michael Caine, Lee Marvin and others. Listening to this album takes you back to the sound of the 60’s. My favorite tracks is Interstellar Overdrive by Pink Floyd and a remake of the Rolling Stones hit Paint it Black done by Chris Farlowe. This album was well recorded and produced. This album is available on Amazon
Devil’s Domain is the April 20, 2017 original motion picture soundtrack of the same name released on the Cleopatra Records label.

Head is the soundtrack to the film Head, the only theatrical release by The Monkees. Released in 1968 through Colgems, it was the band’s sixth album. Head was the last Monkees album to feature Peter Tork till Pool It! in 1987, and the last to feature all four Monkees until 1996’s Justus. In addition to their hit Porpoise Song, there was other great tracks such as Daddy’s Song sung by Davy Jones, Circle Sky sung by Mike Nesmith, Can You Dig It sung by Micky Dolenz, Long Title: Do I Have to Do This All Over Again? sung by Peter Tork and more. This album did not have the acclaim and their previous albums but it is worth adding to one’s Monkees library.
