I have here the main theme and end credits tracks from the extremely fantastic Dexter television show. If you haven't seen this show yet, I highly recommend it. The main theme was done by Rolfe Kent and the end credits are from Daniel Linct. Daniel scores the entire show as well. If you are a fan of the show's great music pick up the full Dexter soundtrack for your listening pleasure Enjoy!

Also, I have an extra theme in this download for folks who watched HBO back in the day. I don't want to get your hopes up with thinking is it the "Dream On" theme or "Fraggle Rock", but it's a theme that brings back memories to me. Enjoy!

This is the title track that plays during the opening credits and it's a track that just sticks in my head long after I've watched an episode. The music in the show was done by David Darlington & Steven Rosen so I'm guessing they put this theme together. Enjoy!

Well, I touched on it in the last post, this film really seems to capture the feeling of the Oz books, a little strange, funny and much darker that the previous film, as you can see by the quote below. It is one of my all time favorite flicks and Fairuza Balk plays Dorthy superberly, she doesn't try to emulate Judy Garland, but plays Dorthy her way. If you haven't seen this one, give it a shot. Anywho, Enjoy the soundtrack! (Note: I've included a bonus track here called Return to Oz performed by Victoria Wood.

I'm recently reading the book "Wicked", the book about the Wicked Witch of the West, before she was the famous witch. I have to say it's quite an amazing book and really is stirring up my interst in the Wizard of Oz again, and that being said since this is a soundtrack blog it's time to post a Wizard of Oz soundtrack. This is the 26 track album labeled as "Selections From The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack". There is another 2 disc set that has even more tracks from the film for the hard core fan, but for someone like myself this soundtrack has all the "hits" and even some extened tracks and tracks that didn't make the cut in the final flim.
Speaking of the film, I have to say although it's hugely well known even today and perhaps even called classic to many, it s as a film based on a book falls a bit flat for me. As a stand alone flim not being compared to the book, then it's enjoyable, but I'm saying, READ the books if you haven't, they are much darker and have some very interesting things that didn't make it into the final film. Thankfully many, many years later the film "Return to Oz" came out and that captured the tone and look of the books very well. If you look at the illustrations from the books, you'll see how similar the classic characters look, but not only that the tone is much darker and dare I say scarier than the previous film (flying monkeys aside). My next post will be the score to the "Return to Oz" film. Well, for now enjoy the original Oz soundtrack! As an added bonus I have included the Lux Radio Show's Christmas radio performance of the Wizard of Oz starring Judy Garland. If you a fan of old-time radio I think you'll enjoy it. It's heavily based on this film version.
