Missing are (at least):
1. Theme from "A Summer Place" (1959 movie) #1 Billboard Hit (instrumental / arr. Percy Faith) for the year 1960.
2. Paranoid (by Black Sabbath)
3. Crocodile Rock (by Elton John)
4. Superfly (by Curtis Mayfield)
5. Go All The Way (cover, by The Killers; orig. = Raspberries) ... It is excellent, by the way.
features pop-rock music from the 1970s such as The Moody Blues, Carpenters, Alice Cooper, Barry White, etc..
The original score composed by Danny Elfman for the 2012 movie is featured on the separate score CD.
It is nice to see Tim Burton and Johnny Depp paying tribute to Dark Shadows, even if some oldtime and overly-
protective fans may not care for their affectionate attempt to add more humor to the highly dramatized style of Dark Shadows.
While the 2012 film is certainly not perfect, it is a fascinating blend that Tim Burton and Johnny Depp put together --
a huge undertaking to bring Dark Shadows to a new audience and not simply try and pointlessly photocopy the original.
The vintage songs from the era in which the movie is set, 1972, are terrific timepieces and all still sound fresh today.
