Originally released on CD in 2000, the expanded soundtrack edition of
John Carpenter's classic 1981 thriller included over 20 minutes of previously
unreleased music plus music from scenes deleted from the final print. The
masters were re-mixed from the original multi-track session tapes by long-time
Carpenter associate Alan Howarth. This is the first time the expanded edition
has appeared on vinyl in its complete form, including original dialogue

Description: Much of the power of the best
films by the cult director
John Carpenter can be attributed to
their use of music — music that, more often than not, was composed and performed
by Carpenter himself. What began as a necessity for the low-budget productions
by Carpenter became a major part of his aesthetic, and established him as a
pioneering figure in genre-film score work as well as electronic music in
general. Now, flanked by his son Cody Carpenter and godson Daniel Davies, and
with two albums (Lost Themes and Lost Themes II) of
non-soundtrack material under his belt, Carpenter has decided to revisit some of
his most beloved themes.
This 12" release includes the themes to Halloween and Escape From
New York, newly rerecorded by Carpenter and his Lost Themes
bandmates. May it serve as a bridge between the Horror Master's legendary, still
relevant past and his remarkable present.
