Limited Edition LET THE RIGHT ONE IN Vinyl Soundtrack by Johan Söderqvist
Tomas Alfredson’s 2008 Let the Right One In was one of the most striking and beautiful vampire movies in decades to come out of Sweden (or anywhere for that matter). It is widely regarded as one of the best vampire movies ever made. That, and it featured an excellent soundtrack loaded with dark and brooding themes that struck a big chord with many soundtrack enthusiasts.
In 2012 Johan Söderqvist’s score to the film found its way to three special vinyl soundtrack releases courtesy of Death Waltz Recording Company.
One of those releases was a Limited (of 200) White Vinyl Edition that sold out and is now all but impossible to find. Another was a standard black vinyl release that you can still get via Amazon.
But the very first of those releases – and the very first vinyl release of this score ever – was released on July 25, 2012. It was a Limited Edition Black Vinyl Single LP that included an A2 poster of exclusive cover art by Candice Tripp, an internationally renowned fine artist that has shown work in galleries such as Lazarides (London) & Joshua Liner (New York).
I’m not sure how many limited editions were released, since there seems to be nothing official anywhere. I do recall that is was limited to only 100, but that’s from memory so don’t quote me on that as being actual fact. Either way, this is a very rare and hard to find vinyl soundtrack and a definite must for any serious collector.
