Soundtrack from the Apple film Son of Dracula, starring Harry Nilsson as Count Down, son of Dracula, and Ringo Starr as Merlin. The album credits include Klaus Voorman on bass, Peter Frampton on electric guitar, and George Harrison on cowbell. Really.

Count Down falls in love with Amber, played by Suzanna Leigh, and wishes to become mortal. Merlin, seeing in the stars that a change is coming to the House of Dracula, comes to advise the Count. Everybody is in this movie -- Frankenstein, Von Helsing, The Wolfman, The Mummy, everybody.

The cover of this LP is lavish and stylish, a perfect example of reasons why vinyl is better than CDs. Batwings open from the front, revealing a photomontage from the film. Tucked inside is an iron on transfer of the count hovering over Merlin with the words "Bite It" in gothic script.
