The Wraith

1986 Soundtrack by Ian Hunter and various artists


Where's the Fire - Tim Feehan; Those Were the Days - Honeymoon Suite; Hearts Vs. Heads - Stan Bush; Hold on Blue Eyes - Lamarca; Young Love, Hot Love - Jill Michaels; Secret Loser - Ozzy Osbourne; Never Surrender - Lion; Bad Mistake - James House; Wake Up Call - Ian Hunter; Matter of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler

This was a low budget horror movie starring Charlie Sheen, Nick Cassavetes, Sheriyn Fenn, and Randy Quaid. The plot involves a mysterious car and driver who takes his revenge on a drag racing gang in a small desert town. In Germany, the movie was issued under the title Interceptor. Ian's contribution, Wake Up Call, was written by Arthur Baker, Tina B., and Tommy Mandel.

[Tom Mandel] Wake Up Call was a song that Ian and Arthur Baker were working on, and Ian asked me to come in (or maybe Arthur did, because I'd been doing some sessions at his studio in that period.) They were nice enough to give me writing credit on the tune for just making up some keyboard ideas and recording with them. It may have been that I was a link between Ian's song-oriented approach to music, and Arthur's electronic and groove approach.
