    Music from Jess Franco films

    I need help in sourcing music from Jess franco films. There is not one definitive compilation out there.

    Heres what I'm aware of so far

    Franco's band

    This is the only Daniel White music I can find that features music from Franco's films. This features the themes from Female vampire and some music from Midnight Party, not too sure on the rest

    Cheers Ian. Its really hard tracking all these down. I love certain scores and themes including some of the wackier ones but they are scattered about all over and are really hard to find.

    Damn, I love the Bruno Nicolai scores he did for Franco so much! I have all the above save COUNT DRACULA. Digitmovies released NIGHTMARES COME AT NIGHT, 99 WOMEN, A VIRGIN AMONG THE LIVING DEAD and EUGENIE DE SADE 70 on cd. I'm sure a lot, if not all, of them are really hard to find now but you can always check their website. JUSTINE was released by PAN CD.

    Along with his giallo stuff (mostly for Sergio Martino), I think the Franco stuff is the among the best soundtrack work Nicolai did.

    I also have this cool little item. Besides Soledad singing, there's a really catchy song about her by an indie rock band.



    And don't forget the awesome VAMPYROS LESBOS disc from Crippled Dick!

    Oh yeah. Forgot about that. One of my favourite soundtracks ever, which I've also owned forever.

    By the way that Distortions album by Blue Phantom sounds awesome. Just listened to some soundbites from it. If you like the music from the Arno/Romay hunt scene then I'm sure you will like the rest. I think there is some other music used from the film too.

    The Nicolai scores are on amazon I think , but expensive and also Beat Records in Italy sell them, the same place where I got my copies of Fabio Frizzi scores.

    Blue Phantom (one of my favourite records ever from before I even knew it was featured in Eurocult films) is also used in "Sinner".
    In fact, a lot of Italian library music is used in Franco's films. This one is used in the ferris wheel scene in "Sinner":

    And don't forget about "Sexedelic" and "Psychedelic Dance Party: Vampire Sound Incorporated", German library LPs I think, they were used for "Vampyros Lesbos".

    Also there's a couple of limited edition Lucertola Media CDs from the mid 90's - "3 Films By Jess Franco" which has music from Vampyros Lesbos, She Killed In Ecstasy and The Devil Came From Akasava, and also they released "The Bloody Judge" soundtrack too
