    Oh, this is an old thread!
    But I'd love to see all of these again. They used to scare me though and I'm not sure I want my memories ruined...

    Still struck by the incongruity of a song in the middle of "Lust (Bust) for a Vampire "

    Who was Tracy ? & was she a 1 hit wonder ?

    That was added by the producers in post production for no obvious reason (unless they thought Strange Love would be the Hammer equivalent of Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head).

    Hello Quentin

    The title track 'Strange Love' was on the B-side to Tracy's A:side release on the Columbia label on 22 January 1971. The track 'Strange Love' was included in the 2001 RPM CD Compilation entitled 'Reflections' 22 Brit Girl Classics From the 60's. By co-incidence also included in this compilation CD is the Hammer Horror actress Caroline Munro's 1967 track 'This Sporting Life' which was produced by Mark Wirtz.

    From the sleeve notes of the CD, 'Strange Love' was produced and written by Harry Robinson (the former musical director of the 1950's show 6.5 Special). Apparently Tracy was a red headed 19 year old from Wembley, Middlesex. The A:side single was entitled Rock Me In the Cradle (Of Your Loving Arms). No other details are known. The sleeve notes say that another singer called Tracy had a few single releases in 1969 so it could be the same singer.

    Thanks Joe

    Is the CD still available do you know ? - as I have several comps of Brit girl singers - have you heard Caroline's version of Francoise Hardy's "Tar & Cement " ?

    I met Caroline a few years back, & she's a lovely lady - but I'll have a look on a couple of trading sites (the on by the bay :}) to see if it's still available

    Here's the label on the Irish pressing of the single. I've never seen the British pressing of it.

    Isn't that the point of it? It's meant to be scary and isn't very scary if seen in the light of day

    I did think it odd that Horror scheduled it at midday and not midnight.

    Mean to record 'Fright' I remember watching this in the cinema-about the same time as 'Revenge!' (1971) which was gripping.
