OLDBOY vinyl soundtrack by cho young-wuk

Invada Records and Milan Records have announced they’ll be releasing a vinyl pressing of Cho Young-Wuk’s score to the 2003 thriller Oldboy.

The soundtrack, overseen by Cho Young-Wuk, will include new artwork from Laurent Durieux.

Since two different labels are releasing it, we’ll have two different versions.

  1. Milan will be releasing a red vinyl pressing (with download card) in North America.
  2. Invada will release an orange vinyl version (with download card) in Europe.

Previously only available on Audio CD, this is the first ever release of the Oldboy soundtrack on vinyl.

November 18, 2014 is the date to look out for.

In the meantime, enjoy a sample:

The Big Lebowski

A new listing for a vinyl pressing of the various artists music to the 1998 film The Big Lebowski has appeared on Amazon.

The listing is scant on detail. Aside from a price of $19.98 and a release date of November 25, 2014.

The release is reportedly an Island/Def Jam pressing, however they haven’t released any information that we can find.

Sorry but the cover image above is NOT it, at least, we don’t think it is.

We’ll post more info as we learn it.

In the meantime there’s always Universal’s release, which has the drop as far as release dates go, but is quite a bit more expensive.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vinyl Fan Bundle

The 2xLP “Deluxe” vinyl pressing of the music and original score to Guardians of the Galaxy can now be ordered here in time for its September 16, 2014 release.

Additionally, a special “Fan Bundle” version of the release has been made available that includes the poster that you see above. Pretty cool!

The fan bundle is available exclusively at MyPlayDirect.com.

A CAT IN THE BRAIN Vinyl

On Friday, as part of their last gallery show prior to September’s WonderCon, Mondo unveiled their newest vinyl release: Fabio Frizzi’s score to the 1990 film A Cat In The Brain (aka Nightmare Concert).

This is the first time Frizzi’s score to the film has been pressed on vinyl.

Features of the release:

  • Artwork by We Buy Your Kids
  • Liner notes by Fabio Frizzi
  • 180 Gram Black Vinyl

The release also includes randomly inserted Brain Colored vinyl pressings, as shown below:

The number of these colored pressings hasn’t been announced.

Couldn’t make it to the gallery but still want one of these? Well, you might be in luck, because while they haven’t gone up in Mondo’s store yet (they no doubt will after WonderCon), a couple have already popped up for sale on Ebay.

Death Waltz Originals Debut is the Rescore to THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE

A re-score of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre by Umberto & Antoni Maiovvi will be released on vinyl.

The re-score will be performed by Umberto & Antoni Maiovvi and will be titled “The Hook & Pull Gang.” They’ll perform the re-score live at MondoCon & Beyond Fest in September to screenings of the film, allowing fans to see the music unfold as the film does. All of the dialogue and sound effects from the film will be retained.

The release forms the debt of Death Waltz Originals and will come on coloured swirl vinyl.

it will be limited to 800 copies worldwide, first (and possibly only) available at the WonderCon screenings.

THE RAID 2 Vinyl Soundtrack by Spacelab9

As you know, in the next few days (September 2, 2014) Spacelab9 are releasing vinyl pressings of Joseph Trapanese’s excellent score to the equally excellent action film, The Raid 2.

We posted about this when it was first announced, though at that time not a lot of details were available. Since then we’ve added a listing where you can buy yourself a copy of the standard black vinyl version, but there’s more to this story. There’s variants to talk about.

Spacelab9 are releasing two colored limited edition variants in addition to the black vinyl version linked to above. These variants are the same as the black vinyl release with the exception of the vinyl color, which is shown below. Prices aren’t much different either – just a few bucks extra for the variants, at least, while they last. Once resellers get their hands on them, well, you know.

Titles link to Spacelab9’s product page where you can go buy them, while stocks last.

Cell Block Variant

THE RAID 2 Vinyl Cell Block Variant Soundtrack

  • “Cell Block” grey colored vinyl
  • Limited edition (number unconfirmed)

Crimson Rain Variant

THE RAID 2 Vinyl Crimson Rain Variant Soundtrack

  • “Crimson Rain” blood red colored vinyl
  • Limited edition (only 165 copies)

If you miss out on a variant, or want an alternative way to snap up a black version, we notice new copies have already started popping up on Ebay. At the time of this post only the black versions are there, but we’re guessing a handful of the colored variants will pop up soon enough.

Finally, if you don’t know much about this score, we definitely recommend it. Not sure? Listen to (most of) it for yourself:

Mondo is going to release Alex North’s rejected score to director Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey on vinyl.

The album will be titled Music for 2001: A Space Odyssey and will come in a deluxe package, complete with liner notes by Jon Burlingame.

Composer Alex North’s original score to the film was abandoned during post-production, apparently at the last minute. North was unaware of this, though, and only learned of it during the film’s premiere screening! How terrible and unprofessional is that?

Austin composer and writer Brian Satterwhite will host a panel on the subject at WonderCon (between September 20th and 21st in Austin). The panel will include a live presentation of several scenes from 2001: A Space Odyssey with the lost score reintegrated back into the film to show what could have been. That sounds so cool!

The vinyl will first be available for sale at the Mondo booth during WonderCon.

This Mondo release is bound to be highly sought after. North’s original score has previously been released on Audio CD, a few times actually. The most sought after version was Intrada’s Special Collection release (pictured above). It sold out immediately, becoming a big collector’s item. You can still find it on Amazon and on Ebay but be prepared to crack open the piggy bank…

Listen to a preview of the score (from the Audio CD):

Note that Mondo haven’t released artwork for the vinyl release at the time of this post.

Mondo are set to release a double LP vinyl pressing of Michael Kamen’s score to The Iron Giant.

Features:

  • Fully remastered score for the format (by James Plotkin)
  • 45 RPM
  • Two different releases (see below)

Version A

Featuring artwork by Jason Edmiston:

Iron Giant Vinyl Soundtrack by Michael Kamen

Pressed on 180 gram black vinyl with randomly inserted steel grey.

Version B

Featuring artwork by Jay Shaw:

Iron Giant Vinyl Soundtrack by Michael Kamen by Mondo

Limited to 1,000 copies and comes pressed on 180 gram black vinyl with metal embossed slip case.

Both releases will be first sold at MondoCon (September 20th-21st in Austin). They should also be available online at a later time.

THE WOLVERINE Vinyl Soundtrack

Modern Vinyl are reporting they spotted a listing at Sound Stage Direct for a vinyl pressing of Marco Beltrami’s The Wolverine.

The listing apparently identified the vinyl release would contain:

  • Textured Gatefold Jacket, with Obi-strip and insert
  • Double LP, with Laser Etching featuring album cover art (seen above)
  • 22 tracks, plus the bonus track of “Yukiko.”

Unfortunately the source listing is now a “404 Error” page, prompting us to wonder if the cat was let out of the bag prematurely or if the proposed vinyl release has been shelved. Given how specific the details were, perhaps it’s reasonable to assume the details were just spilled a little early and we simply have to wait for an official announcement.

For now we’ll have to remain content with the Audio CD, but we’ll keep our eye out for any developments – it would be very enjoyable on vinyl.

Listen for yourself:

Spacelab9 has released a new “Exclusive Comic Store” edition of The Walking Dead soundtrack.

Release date was August 27, 2014.

This is a purple-marble colored pressing.

It is limited to only 400 copies.

As the title suggests, this was made available only through comic book stores. No word on whether or not it has sold out. You can try to order one through your local comic store and see if you’re lucky.

If not, one might pop up on Ebay at some time in the future. Unfortunately not one of them has shown up yet (at the time of this posting).

COMING HOME Vinyl Soundtrack by Qigang Chen

Music on Vinyl are releasing Qigang Chen’s original soundtrack to director Yimou Zhang’s 2014 drama film Coming Home.

The release will be on a 2LP 180gram transparent vinyl pressing.

It is limited to 1,000 copies.

Comes with insert.

The score, drawn from vintage Chinese revolutionary symphonies performed by legendary pianist Lang Lang, is a sentimental one. Piano is the main “voice” of this score, with cello, violin and female voices in supporting roles. In order to make it work with the story, the music of ComingHome features simple tunes and forms. Anything excessively rousing is avoided, with the soundtrack largely providing an understated aural backdrop, coming up to the foreground only when the occasion calls for it

Side A

1. My Beloved, In My Heart
2. So Near, Yet So Far Away (I)
3. Coming Home (I)
