Description

A western film noir mixed with softcore sex scenes and a Reefer Madness-style warning about the perils of marijuana…it's all there in Cherry…& Harry & Raquel, one of Russ Meyer's wackiest romps. And composer Bill Loose is up to the task of bridging some yawning gaps in style and plot, with a little help from fellow soundtrack composer Stu Phillips, whose fantastic garage pop tune "Toys of Our Time" (performed by "The Jacks & Balls") appears twice, once in mono, once in stereo.

+ Limited edition of 300 copies pressed on "Flesh" coloured vinyl... arghahaha

William "Bill" Loose is one of those cult composers whose work you've heard much more than you've heard of the man himself. During WWII, he led the U.S. Army Air Forces Orchestra in New York, and then was hired in the mid-'50s to be in charge of Capitol's extensive musical cue library (at one time two dozen TV shows were using his cues)! From there he branched out into composing themes for shows like The Hollywood Squares and serving as Musical Director for The Doris Day Show.

Starting in the late '60s, though, Loose's career took a sharp left turn, as he composed soundtracks for some of the most notorious "B" movies of all time including the outlaw biker film The Rebel Rousers and Jack Hill's The Swinging Cheerleaders. But what lends his career true cult status is without a doubt the work he did for sexploitation director Russ Meyer; Loose composed the soundtracks for many of Meyer's films, but unfortunately only these two, Vixen and Cherry…& Harry & Raquel ever were released on LP. Which is too bad…each is a rollicking mix of rock and roll, absurdist program music, bump-and-grind jazz, and old-fashioned widescreen, string-heavy vistas. Real Gone Music is proud to present the first-ever vinyl reissues of these cult classic soundtracks, each mastered in 45 R.P.M. for maximum audio pleasure!

Drift Recommends


Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
