Editorial Reviews

This 1983 drama may have missed the mark at the box office (mixed reviews didn't help), but a year after its release, the "rediscovered" soundtrack began climbing the charts, prompting the studio to re-release the record. Includes the #1 hit On the Dark Side; Runaround Sue; Down on My Knees; Hang up My Rock & Roll Shoes - John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band; Runaway - Del Shannon; Boardwalk Angel Ben E. King; Those Oldies But Goodies (Remind Me of You) , and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars "TENDER YEARS" AND "WILD SUMMER NIGHTS" ARE BACK! November 6, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I feel that it is my duty to inform all fans of "Eddie and the Cruisers" that Volcano Entertainment has just reissued the CD, complete with "Tender Years" and "Wild Summer Nights" in all their glory! This CD puts the previous Scotti Bros. release (which left these two great songs off) to shame. Buy this today! Thanks to everyone involved with restoring this album to classic status and long live Eddie and the Cruisers!

Eddie and the Cruisers came out a year before Streets Of Fire would be the next project for actor Michael Pare in another rock n' roll film with an awesome soundtrack to boot. The movie about the disappearance of a (fictional) leader of a rock band was not too shabby ( I only saw it on cable a couple of times)...Point being, both soundtracks (hand in hand) I would highly recommend to any an avid music collector to prove that the 80's music was not all commercialized-synthesized shlock. Both retro in sound to the 50's and 60's with a contemporary edge that have stood the test of time exceptionally well !

Many have compared Eddie & The Cruisers/John Cafferty soundtrack to Springsteen's and the E Band's work (hopefully as compliment and not as a rip off).Let's just say the Boss is the Boss and John Cafferty is John Cafferty. John Cafferty and his band were/are anything but a rip off. He has this very distinct knack for writing original and performing his material with plenty of hooks and upbeat melodies. His vocals are also easily recognized.They seem to have the tough rebellious rockin' edge to them when called for and yet that controllable warm vocal range that allows him to do a great ballad like Tender Years!The Beaver Brown Band can do no wrong---the sheer artistry and musical synergy between JC & BBB is a great musical force unto itself.

The Volcano company did include ALL the right tracks that were on the original vinyl pressings and cassette versions. The only small quirk (which in no way affects playback or has deleted anything) is the way the tracks are physically/digitally numbered on the disc; they do not correspond with the printed listing on the back cd cover. Does this matter? Heck no...but I was ready to return the cd before I listened to it's entirety.

5.0 out of 5 stars TENDER YEARS AND WILD SUMMER NIGHTS ARE BACK! December 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I owned this on cassette in my younger days.After it finally wore out I never replaced it due to Tender Years and Wild Summer Nights being omitted. To my surprise I was browsing through a Borders location last week and found the soundtrack to be re-released with all original tracks. If Amazon wants to sell more copies they better drop the original and start selling the Volcano release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best soundtrack of all time, but .... December 15, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I absolutely love the cruisers soundtracks but. As most Cruisers and Cafferty fans realise, Scotti Bros. left Tender Years and Wild Summer Nights off the new version of this disc. This has something to do with copyright laws and the fact that this was John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band's first sinngle released even before the movie or the soundtrack came out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yeah AMAZON!!! ... thanks for shipping the Original August 19, 2002
By jhf
Format:Audio CD
Obviously, this is a soundtrack that in it's original form is one of the best movie soundtracks of its era. I read a couple of the reviews and found that two of the best songs had been left off( for copyright reasons ) the most recent pressing. I'd like to say, that I am thankful for AMAZON.COM!! Despite the reviews others had left about this version, I went ahead and ordered anyway... I was not disappointed :) When it arrived, I found that they(AMAZON.COM) had tracked down an original Volcano pressing with all original tracks intact! THANK YOU... I am very satisfied, and enjoying Wild Summer Nights as I type. Amazon.com ROCKS!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome soundtrack! September 19, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is an amazing soundtrack. I love all of the songs on it. For all of you who are disappointed because the two best songs from the movie were not included on your copy of the soundtrack there is good news. The soundtrack has been rereleased and it includes both 'wild summer nights' and 'tender years' on it. Those two songs are by far my favorites from the movie and they are the reason why the soundtrack gets five stars from me. It's great!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Spirit of Eddie Lives On January 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
My review is based on the vinyl recording which has Wild Summer Nights and Tender Years. The music is alive with spirit and emotion. Its really a shame John Cafferty and Beaver Brown only received modest success for the music. The musical arrangements and the vocals are always are very much apprecaited as they can allow one to reflect upon those special tender years of high school and college which can shape ones social adaptation to the world we live in. This record succedes admirably on all these accounts.

4.0 out of 5 stars TENDER YEARS.....WHERE IS IT?????!!!!!!!!! June 7, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I used to own this soundtrack back in the 80's. With VH-1 showing "Eddie and the Cruisers" as of late, it prompted me to buy the soundtrack again, but no "Tender Years?" That song is one of the greatest ballads ever recorded, bar none. Why isn't it on the soundtrack? Why is it so damn hard to find?????
