Lederer produced  and William Tennant was  executive producer  for the “Polygram Pictures production released  by Columbia  pictures.


“The  Hollywood Knights” soundtrack  album, released  by Casablanca Records, is  a compilation. of some of the biggest  all-time hits from one of the most  joyous eras in American  music  — the 1960′.s. The  soundtrack album is .a faithful   representation of the  musical stylings of  that era.  The motion picture  is set in 1965..

The album  also utilizes the talents of  one of  today’s top Casa-blanca recording acts,  Brooklyn Dreams,   who wrote and perform the title  track.  The perfect  three-part harmony’ of  Brooklyn  Dreams (Bruce Sudano, Joe  Esposito and Eddie  Hokenson), is a welcome to a Sixties  past and  succeeds in capturing  the enthusiasm as well as  the intricacies  of that period’s music. The tune “Hollywood Knights”  was produced by Kenny  Vance, an. ex-member of the very  popular Sixties’  group Jay & The. Americans.  The movie, score and soundtrack. album were  impressively collated into one single work by  Rick Eaker.

Eaker is a music  historian and expert   on period music and its application  to films.   Recently he was music  consultant and coordinator on the  hit films “American Hot Wax”  and “Animal House.” The music  speaks for the Sixties  with  each song a rock  & roll standard:   “He’s So  Fine” and “One Fine  Day” by The Chiffons are  very typical of  the “girl group  sound” of that time,  which led to  the evocative music  of Martha &  The Vandellas, who contribute  “Quicksand”  and “Heatwave.”  The  “wicked” Wilson  Pickett sings “In  The Midnight  Hour,” and “Hey  Baby” by Bruce Channel features  a blistering  harmonica line by  Delbert McClinton,  a well-known  pop artist  today.  The incomparable   Ray Charles contributes “What’d   I Say,” and The Four Seasons  offer  two of their  best “Big  Girls  Don’t Cry” and  “Rag Doll,”  Instrumental virtuosity  is displayed  with  “Wipe Out” by The Surfaris and “Pipeline”  by The  Chantay’s.
This  album could be  classified  as a Sixties  greatest hits  package,  but the “The Hollywood  Knights”  soundtrack is even better than  that. All of the original  recordings have been  re-mastered with  state-of-the-art  equipment to  produce true high  fidelity.
