Due to overwhelming requests, John Madara, through That Philly Sound, brings you the original, never before released soundtrack from the Ralph Bakshi cult classic, HEY GOOD LOOKIN'.
Performed and arranged by artist, Ric Sandler, the songs were co-written by Ric Sandler and John Madara and produced by John Madara.
Animator, Ralph Bakshi, came to prominence with his controversial film,"Fritz The Cat," that opened in April of 1972 to rave reviews. In 1975 Bakshi began production for HEY GOOD LOOKIN', which mixed animation and live action. Warner Brothers decided that combining live action with animation was not believable, so Bakshi went back to the drawing table and animated the live action scenes. HEY GOOD LOOKIN' was finally released in 1982, six years before the successful animation/live action feature film "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" was released. Ralph Bakshi's other credits include, among others, the animated features "Heavy Traffic," "American Pop" and "Cool World."
An exceptional talent, Ric Sandler has had songs recorded by Dionne Warwick, Jermaine Jackson, Anne Murray and many others. He continues to record his own music, including a multi-textured wonder called "Rhythmunderground" and his newest CD titled "1 God 1 Planet."
Along with John Madara's co-writing and producing contribution to the soundtrack, he also produced the Danny and The Juniors' hit record, ROCK AND ROLL IS HERE TO STAY and co-wrote and co-produced other international hits as AT THE HOP (Danny and The Juniors), THE FLY (Chubby Checker), YOU DON'T OWN ME (Leslie Gore) and 1-2-3 (Len Barry, who also co-wrote the song). John is currently working on a trance-dance CD and is in development on a feature film, AT THE HOP.
All Songs have been digitally restored and digitally mastered.
