Back in 1990, I saw the movie License To Thrill in a college movie-house. The soundtrack was simply amazing. The movie has been an obsession of mine ever since. I copied the soundtrack from the original VHS onto a cassette tape way back then and listened to it daily on the way to class and have been looking for the music ever since. A number of years ago, I recorded the set in this archive from a second generation VHS tape on a HiFi VCR. The sound quality is excellent, though a little flat compared to a full stereo CD rip. I think you'll enjoy it.
This is a rip OF THE MOVIE AUDIO. It is not the "official soundtrack" (which was just a promo release but I would love to get my hands on). It contains dialogue over the music on many tracks. Unless someone can find and rip the promo release, that's the best it's going to be.
Most of the songs on the album are from a former label known as ZTT. If you want
to get some of the real album songs, go to http://www.mininova.org/search/?search=ztt+archive and get Archive #1 - Nasty Rox. It has all of the Nasty Rox songs. The other songs are much harder to find. I've yet to locate Kissing The Pink, a Hoodlum Priest rip that contains Crime Inc., or the movie version of MC Tunes.
It appears there are many who share my obsession if you look at threads on
http://www.xmission.com/pub/lists/ztt/archive/v02.n132 (this one goes back to 1999)
So to them, I dedicate this torrent.
1) Intro/Spectrum is Green - The movie intro and techno mix used to start the movie. Not on the official soundtrack nor is there any reord of it ever being released on a label. Voice over says it was from Robin "Bin Mix" Hancock and CJ Mackintosh. This thread shows that maybe someone has it. For added humor, go to this link and look for "lyrics"
2) Escape From New York - A decent amount of voice over and cut up - you need to view the movie to see the opening. Not remixed from version on Nasty Rox CA$H album. Full song is represented in the movie.
3) 9th Wonder - Cut up and truncated version from Nasty Rox CA$H album. Has some dialogue mixed in.
3) 10th Wonder - Cut up version from Nasty Rox CA$H album. Has some dialogue mixed in.
4) Wooba Wubba II - Mainly dialogue with the song as backing music. Album version from Nasty Rox CA$H is harder and better.
5) State of Love - Mainly dialogue with the song as backing music. Original song from Kissing The Pink - Sugarlands.
6) Intermission - a continuation of the Intro mix by Robin Hancock and CJ Mackintosh. No album equivalent known.
7) Ski Noises - just a part of the movie. No music. It's short
8) Crime Inc - A lot of voice over. From Hoodlum Priest. This is the song that got him signed to ZTT. Listed by Record Collector magazine as ZTT's "Top 10 Rarities". That article says it was only officially released on the License To Thrill Soundtrack promo but this
page says that it's also on the Heart of Darkness CD version as bonus tracks. Unfortunately it's not in the vinyl rip currently on mininova. It's also not currently on the Hoodlum Priest webpage though it looks like it might be coming.
9) Dance Yourself To Death - No voice over - different version than on the MC Tunes The North At Its Heights album. Movie credits say it was remixed with 808 State. I don't know what version is on the promo soundtrack but I think this mix is killer and better than the album. This
thread says it was on a compilation titled Dance Yourself To Death
10) Wooba Wubbaa I (Glen Plake Song) - A lot of voice over - slight addition of "Plaaake" to the song but otherwise true to the album version. I think the album version is actually saying "Click" ("We're just going to keep playing til the lights go out - Click") but it does sound a lot like "Plake" on the album.
11) Blow - Essentially the same as the Nasty Rox CA$H album version.
12) Nobby's One - - Essentially the same as the Nasty Rox CA$H album version.
13) Closing - just a part of the movie. No music. It's short
14) Specific-Pacific - Music for the movie credits. It's incredibly close to Pacific 707 from 808 State - 808:88:98 but not quite. The VHS rip really doesn't do justice to this song. Get the real Pacific 707 from CD.
