Light Without Heat LWH1002-2

This disc collects Vai’s many contributions to film music, including the much-sought after duel scene from the movie Crossroads (including a guitar duel with Shuggie Otis, which never made it to the film). The album opens with an apropos version of The Kinks’ “Celluloid Heroes,” and “Love Blood,” a track Vai intended for the Tom Cruise/Brad Pitt film version of Anne Rice’s novel Interview With A Vampire that never made it to the film. Also includes tracks recorded for Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, Encino Man, Dudes and various other contributions to soundtracks and films. Some pieces are long, others merely 15 seconds in length.
