Description: Exclusively re-mastered for this vinyl release including 6 tracks that never made it into the original film. John Carpenter not only directed Escape From New York but also composed and recorded all of its music too. This score sounds as fresh today as it did when it was first released. Laden with brooding electronic pulses, flashes of Krautrock and healthy dose of nu disco ensures that this soundtrack sounds as happy on the dance floor as it is in your headphones.

Exclusive cover art by Jay Shaw (aka Iron Jaiden) one of the most in demand poster artists working today, his recent work has been selling out in minutes creating a huge demand on the aftermarket. Jay is heavily influenced by the abstract posters of the polish film industry and is not afraid to experiment with his work.

Sleeve Notes from Alan Howarth

Comes with an A2 poster and an exclusive lithograph of the cover art by Jay Shaw.

Description: 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 highlights.

US (Halloween b/w Escape From New York 12") (Standard Edition 12") (Limited Ed. Mystery Vinyl 12") (12" Picture Disc: 2000 Copies)

Music composed and engineered by John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter & Daniel Davies


Label: Sacred Bones

Release Date: June 17, 2016
Length:

Halloween (Main Theme)
Escape From New York (Main Theme)

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.
