Roy Budd- The Best of Budd: Original Soundtrack Music by Roy Budd

In addition to his extraordinary talents as a songwriter and graphic artist, my good buddy Nate Ashley is an absolute soundtrack fanatic. Nate's been working on finishing his 5-disc magnum-opus anthology of rare and essential horror movie music- a project he calls Written In Blood- for the past few years. His knowledge of the genre and commitment to perfection is sure to yield a instant-classic bootleg compilation; one for the ages. Having already been privy to the first few volumes, I can personally assure you that Written In Blood is a truly amazing effort & I am happy to announce that Ghostcapital will debut this collection with much pomp and circumstance in the next few weeks. In the meantime, allow me to share this Nate-compiled Roy Budd collection, unofficially released on his own Left-Handed Label. Budd soundtracked oodles of 1970s Thrillers, including; Get Carter, The Carey Treatment, Kidnapped, Foxbat, Mama Dracula, The Marseille Contract...and more. His orchestrated scores are lush and atmospheric, a sample-junky's dream, much akin to the celebrated work of David Axlerod. Thanks for this, Nate. And nice artwork, dude. Enjoy.
Get Carter
