Eddie and The Cruisers...original soundtrack..music by John Cafferty and The Beaver Brown Band



Eddie and the Cruisers was a movie about the disappearance of a (fictional) leader of a rock band, with an awesome soundtrack to boot. The soundtrack has now become a must have for any avid music collector and proves that 80's music was not all commercialized-synthesized shlock. Retro in sound to the 50's and 60's, with a contemporary edge, it has stood the test of time exceptionally well !

Many have compared the Eddie and The Cruisers/John Cafferty soundtrack to Springsteen's and the E Band's work (hopefully as a compliment and not as a rip off).Let's just say the Boss is the Boss and John Cafferty is John Cafferty. John Cafferty and his band were/are anything but a rip off. He has this very distinct knack for writing original and performing his material with plenty of hooks and upbeat melodies. His vocals are also easily recognized.They seem to have the tough rebellious rockin' edge to them when called for and yet that controllable warm vocal range that allows him to do a great ballad like Tender Years!. The Beaver Brown Band can do no wrong---the sheer artistry and musical synergy between JC & BBB is a great musical force unto itself.

1. On The Dark Side
2. Tender Years
3. Runaround Sue
4. Down On My Knees
5. Hang Up My Rock And Roll Shoes
6. Wild Summer Nights
7. Boardwalk Angel
8. Betty Lou's Got A New Pair Of Shoes
9. Those Oldies But Goodies (Remind Me Of You)

10. Season In Hell (Fire Suite)
