The Hot Spot (OST)

Analogue Productions  CAPB 8755 SA

Stereo Hybrid


Miles Davis (trumpet)
Tim Drummond (bass)
Bradford Ellis (keyboards)
John Lee Hooker (guitar, vocals)
Taj Mahal (guitar, vocals)
Earl Palmer (drums)
Roy Rodgers (slide guitar)

An amalgamation of swampy blues, jazz and rock - all mixed and recorded in a sparse, bloomy and eerie sort of way. This recording is just so damn fine, so airy and warm. And the musician's aboard on this Dennis Hopper film are a who's who, including Miles Davis, John Lee Hooker, Taj Mahal, Roy Rodgers, Earl Palmer and Tim Drummond. This has long been a highly sought after and collectible record among audiophiles. A true demonstration disc.

Originally released in 1990.

This SACD is brilliant. Makes you feel like you are in the Deep South on hot summer day. This is one of my favorite soundtrack albums. The SACD is literally one of the best I have heard and makes for a great disc to show off your system or for setting up your amp. I would give the sound a 10/10 and the music is a 8/10. It's a must buy if you can still get it at a good price. Also the line up of musicians on this SACD could not be better if they tried! Closest thing to a must have SACD I have heard.
