GHOST OF DRAGSTRIP HOLLOW - Ronald Stein - "Theme and Intro" (1959)

Okay, "Ghost Of Dragstrip Hollow" might be a stinkball of a movie, but the soundtrack is top notch from start to finish, and music's what we're here for! Stripped of the visuals and the dialogue, listen to what's playing during the opening credits and the intro to the movie, and marvel at the quality. Sure, the opening theme is a little hokey in a TV kind of way, but the arrangement and choice of instruments is bizarre, and then out of nowhere it has that great rockin' sax solo break toward the end!

There is no way you can possibly go wrong with Girls in Hot Rods!!!

The Race Is On

It's the maestro Ron Stein all the way, with a drivin' draggin' intro where you wish there were no sound effects so you could enjoy the total coolness of this song!! We've written about him so many times it's redundant, but what can we say? Ronald Stein was a genius!!! Period! Turn it up!!!

Great Cast!! Killer Soundtrack! Get One! Make Popcorn! Have A Slumber Party! Rock Out!!!

I must tell you that your blog is the only truly great blog on the internet. Thanks for everything! You made me go back and dust off more than a few ancient videotapes on my shelf...

Wow! Now that's a compliment that cannot be left ignored! Thanx!! We're having fun and just trying to keep some of this stuff alive awhile longer. It was an era unlike any other!

If you're familiar with the soundtrack to this movie, maybe you can help me. Are there two tracks on the soundtrack by Linda Leigh and the Treasure Tones, called "My Guy," and "I Promise You?" Have you heard the songs or do you have access to them so somebody else can hear them? Thanks! I have a blog entitled "Music For Every Mood" and I'm trying to find out some information about the elusive Linda Leigh.

Yo Kenny,
Indeed the songs "He's My Guy" and "I Promise You" were songs from "Ghost Of Dragstrip Hollow" but I have never seen any reference to a Linda Leigh. There are MP3's around here some place, I just have to find them! The film is available on Netflix as a double feature with "Ghost In The Invisible Bikini!" You can't go wrong!

I did a review of this and Invisible Bikini. I got a ton of screen caps, but they aren't as big as yours. http://www.retrohound.com/the-ghost-of-dragstrip-hollow-and-the-ghost-in-the-invisible-bikini-dvd-movie-review/

Well, like I said at the beginning of the review, I was sick in bed at the time.
