The Wild Angels-1966 US OST




The Wild Angels is a 1966 Roger Corman film, made on location in Southern California. The Wild Angels was made three years before Easy Rider and was the first film to associate actor Peter Fonda with Harley-Davidson motorcycles and 1960s counterculture. It was also the film that inspired the outlaw biker film genre that continued into the early 1970s.(wiki)

The Wild Angels was a cheap 1968 road movie directed by Roger Corman and starring Peter Fonda, Nancy Sinatra, Diane Ladd, and Bruce Dern. The album's soundtrack captures the rebellious, devil-may-care attitude of its lead characters through rock & roll, surf rock, and psychedelia. Most of it is performed by Davie Allan And The Arrows, but there are also songs by the Visitors and the Hands of Time.(AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine)

The sountrack released in 1966 by Tower Records‎ (T 5043).From this album i chose two songs from Davie Allan And The Arrows, "Blue's Theme" and "Theme From The WIld Angels" and two songs from The Hands Of Time, "Lonely In The Chapel" and "Midnight Rider". Enjoy!!!

"White Rabbit" was written and performed by Grace Slick while she was still with The Great Society. When that band broke up in 1966, Slick was invited to join Jefferson Airplane to replace their departed female singer, Signe Toly Anderson, who left the band with the birth of her child. The first album Slick recorded with Jefferson Airplane was "Surrealistic Pillow", and Slick provided two songs from her previous group: her own "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love", written by her brother-in-law Darby Slick and recorded under the title "Someone to Love" by The Great Society.The Great Society's version of "White Rabbit" was much longer than the more aggressive version of Jefferson Airplane.(wiki)

The band played  psychedelic rock to hard rock and sing in English. It was also active in other countries, under the name of Jericho Jones and Jericho. It was one of the first Israeli rock bands.
The band has been a leading force in the early Israeli beat scene, but it was their cooperation with singer-songwriter Arik Einstein that helped them cross over to the mainstream of Israeli pop and gain recognition. Their collaboration with Einstein proved to be very influentive on the Israeli rock.The album recorded at Kolinor Studios,Tel Aviv,Israel.
The songs on the first side of the album (1-6) are from the soundtrack of the motion picture "A Woman's Case".
This is the Israeli reissue of the album by Hed-Arzi (BAN 14106) from 1987. I chose "Song From The Sea", "When You're Gone" and "Subsequent Finale".
