More from our maximum leader, J.R. Williams:

"A few notes on CYCLE PSYCHOS AND MOTOR MANIACS - MUSIC FROM BIKESPLOITATION AND OTHER YOUTH REBELLION FILMS OF THE 1960s - 1970s

As far as I know there has never been a comprehensive collection of music from these particular genres of film.  For twenty years or so the only way to hear many of these tracks was via playing the original vinyl releases.  In 1988 the Blast First label released British artist Savage Pencil’s LP compilation ANGEL DUST: MUSIC FOR MOVIE BIKERS.  Some time later, US artist Jim Blanchard put together a similar collection on CD-R titled EAT MY ANGEL DUST! BIKER SOUNDTRACK ESSENTIALS: 1966 - 1971.  A number of original soundtrack albums from biker-related films have subsequently been re-released on CD.  Enthusiasts like myself who’ve wished to expand their collections have pretty much had to seek out the individual albums (either on vinyl, CD, or as digital files), then pick and choose the more outstanding tracks (in my opinion, many of these soundtracks have only one or, at most, a few worthwhile tracks included on them).  With this collection I’ve attempted to flesh out the material included in the above mentioned compilations with more of the same, plus some additional tracks from thematically-related movie soundtrack LPs (and etc.) of the same cultural period. This isn’t meant to be a “definitive” collection on the subject, by any means, but is probably much more inclusive than anything previously available.  A number of radio spot ads for appropriate films are also included here."
