This modest early '80s hit film about a fictional '60s rock icon who mysteriously disappears (or does he?) took its lead from similar legends surrounding the death of Jim Morrison. Its succesful soundtrack arose from an even more surreal brew of art and commerce. Then-journeyman musician John Cafferty and his Beaver Brown Band essentially became the, er, "real" Eddie and the Cruisers, with actor Michael Pare lip-synching the vocals, and other actors miming their parts. Cafferty and crew supply what was then a fair approximation of the Springsteen Sensibility--wall-of-sound bar rock with overreaching lyrics and grab-your-throat vocals. Not half-bad--if you like that sort of thing. --Jerry McCulley

Saw the movie and loved the music. I'm from Jersey and this is so like the kind of music I listened to as a kid. Great songs.

John Cafferty never reached the success of Bruce Springstein although his music and voice are very similar.
One of my family's all-time favorite "cleaning the house" CD's :)

"I ordered the soundtrack for the movie Eddie and The Crusiers primarily for two songs: on the darkside and season in hell. When my merchandise arrived I reviewed those two songs first. On the darkside was as I expected it to be; however, the song season in hell was not on the cd. The title was on the song on track 10, however the song on track 10 was something different. Very disappointed.
I tried to listen to the music samples for the soundtrack before I bought it. The system said there were not any available. The play list clearly showed season in hell as the last song on the disk."
