If you’re a vinyl collector and a horror fan, you’ve probably been keeping track of the fantastic stuff that’s been coming from Waxwork Records over the past few months. If you haven’t, now’s the time to start: April 1 marks the start of pre-orders for the label’s upcoming release of John Harrison’s classic CREEPSHOW score!
Waxwork has gone whole-hog on this one: besides the 34 tracks that have been re-mixed and remastered exclusively for this release, Waxwork’s CREEPSHOW score will feature full album packaging artwork by Rue Morgue art columnist Ghoulish Gary Pullin, essays by Harrison and director George A. Romero, liner notes, production stills, and even a full-color art print. There will be five variants, each pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Scroll down for the full press release and some exclusive photos! (The vinyl pictured below is the “Father’s Day” cake icing vinyl with blood clot splatter variant.)
CREEPSHOW FILM SCORE TO BE RELEASED ON VINYL BY WAXWORK RECORDS
WAXWORK RECORDS is thrilled to announce their next LP release to the 1982 horror anthology classic, CREEPSHOW. The film was directed by George A. Romero and written by Stephen King. The score was composed and performed by John Harrison (DAY OF THE DEAD, TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE).
This definitive release of the film score has never before been released. The original master tapes of the CREEPSHOW film score were lost for over 30 years, but with the efforts of composer John Harrison and Waxwork Records, the tapes were located in the attic of Jeree Recording Studios in New Brighton, PA. The tapes remained in remarkable shape over the years and were re-mixed and re-mastered for vinyl. The CREEPSHOW score has never sounded this good.
LP package details include:
Heavyweight casebound tip-on gatefold jacket with a satin coating Director essay from George A. Romero
Composer essay from John Harrison
A built-in booklet featuring production stills, artwork, and liner notes A satin coated 12×12 art print of The Creeper
Full album packaging artwork by Ghoulish Gary Pullin
This release features FIVE different vinyl variations that correspond to each story in the film. Each variant is pressed onto high quality 180 gram vinyl and are as follows:
