“Death Proof” OST – Stuntman Mike’s Mix.

Y’know, there’s a lot to be said for bootleg records which never really gets said because…well…they’re bootlegs.

I listen to a lot of soundtracks and one of my favourites is the soundtrack to my favourite Tarantino film “Death Proof”.
I bought it as soon as it came out and it introduced me to some artists that I otherwise maybe wouldn’t have discovered.

Here’s the track lising for the “Death Proof” soundtrack:
1. “The Last Race”— Jack Nitzsche.
2. “Baby, It’s You” — Smith.
3. “Paranoia Prima” — Ennio Morricone.
4. “Planning & Scheming” — Eli Roth & Michael Bacall (Dialogue).
5. “Jeepster” — T. Rex.
6. “Stuntman Mike” — Rose McGowan & Kurt Russell (Dialogue).
7. “Staggolee” — Pacific Gas & Electric.
8. “The Love You Save (May Be Your Own)” — Joe Tex.
9. “Good Love, Bad Love” — Eddie Floyd.
10. “Down In Mexico” — The Coasters.
11. “Hold Tight!” – Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich.
12. “Sally and Jack” — Pino Donaggio.
13. “It’s So Easy” — Willy DeVille.
14. “Whatever-However” — Tracie Thoms & Zoë Bell (Dialogue).
15. “Riot In Thunder Alley” — Eddie Beram.
16. “Chick Habit” – April March.

My favourites were always “Down In Mexico” by The Coasters and Willy Deville’s “It’s So Easy” which I remember hearing for the first time in the controversial 80’s Al Pacino thriller “Cruising“.
– A pair of classics if you ask me!

I’m a bit of a completest when it comes to things like this and as good as the “Death Proof” soundtrack is, it has LOTS of tracks missing which appear in the film.
A few weeks ago, online, I found…
“Death Proof” – Stuntman Mike’s Mix.

This is it for me.
This is the definitive “Death Proof” soundtrack as far as I’m concerned.
It’s divided into Side A and Side B and set up like the jukebox and the records as they appear in the film.
Hell, it even makes the sound of the jukebox changing records inbetween tracks.
I don’t usually go this overboard with things like this but this sounds miles better than the official release and take a look at the track listing why dont ya! :

(Side A):
1. Keith Mansfield – “Funky Fanfare”.
2. Jack Nitzsche – “The Last Race”.
3. Smith – “Baby It’s You”.
4. Ennio Morricone – “Paranoia Prima”.
5. T. Rex – “Jeepster”.
6. Pino Donaggio – “Sally And Jack”.
7. Eddie Floyd – “Good Love, Bad Love”.
8. Pacific Gas & Electric – “Staggolee”.
9. Eli Roth & Michael Bacall – “Planning & Scheming”.
10. Jerry Reed – “East Bound And Down” (as referenced in the movie by Eli Roth’s character).
11. Rose McGowan & Kurt Russell – “Stuntman Mike”.
12. Joe Tex – “The Love You Save”.
13. The Coasters – “Down In Mexico”.
14. Robert Rodriguez – “Stinper”.
15. Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich – “Hold Tight!”
16. AMi jukebox sounds.

(Side B):
1. Willy DeVille – “It’s So Easy”.
2. Mary Elizabeth Winstead – “Baby It’s You”.
3. Bernard Herrmann – “Introduction”.
4. Ennio Morricone – “Unexpected Violence”.
5. Tracie Thoms & Zoe Bell – “Whatever-However”.
6. Eddie Beram – “Riot In Thunder Alley”.
7. Guido & Maurizio De Angelis – “Gangster Story”.
8. Franco Micalizzi – “Italia A Mano Armata”.
9. Stelvio Cipriani – “La Polizia Sta A Guardare”.
10. Hsun Chi Chen (as Chen Tsun-Chi) & Fu Liang Chou (as Chow Fook-Leung).
11. April March – “Chick Habit”.
12. April March – “Laisse Tomber Les Filles”.

Apparently, all of these tracks came sraight from Quentin Tarantino’s personal jukebox which incidentally, is the one used in the finished film.
That man has taste!

  1. Where can I find/download a copy of Stuntman Mike’s Mix?

    • On the internet.

  2. Thanks… tried that already. Only leads me to here and the Inferno Music Vault. No download link available there either.

    • Ah! The Inferno Music Vault is a great site! I don’t think I got it from there at the time but what to do is this:

      Double check that there isn’t a link to a download in the comments section of the Stuntman Mike Mix on The Inferno Music Vault.

      If there isn’t, Contact them directly and request it.

      If that doesn’t work, I could probably sort something out for you.

      Best wishes,
      Al Cook.

  3. Thanks, Al. Yeah… I scoured the entire blog… and no download link. I have sent Long Island Ripper an email with a request and await his reply. I’ll let you know if I hear back from him.

  4. Al… still have not heard back from Long Island Ripper @ The Inferno Music Vault. Any chance you can help out? I have tried to build/recreate the mix myself and I’m only missing the following tracks:

    Side A: 14. Robert Rodriguez – “Stinper”
    16. AMi jukebox sounds

    Side B: 10. Hsun Chi Chen (as Chen Tsun-Chi) & Fu Liang Chou (as Chow Fook-Leung).

    Thanks in advance.

  5. Hey, Al… just heard back from “Long Island Ripper” and I am good to go! Thanks again.

    • Ah, glad to hear it! I wasn’t sure how I was gonna get the music to you.

      Also, I suspected that you may very well be a cop 🙂

  6. A cop?! Really?! Not sure how I gave off that vibe… but it is funny!

    Although… it probably says more about you than me.

    Cheers!
