A. Romero's Creepshow is finally
being given some respect. The wonderful
score by composer John Harrison, available for years on both LP and later on CD
in a significantly truncated version that played very well as a listening experience
but was woefully lacking as a representation of the film's score since many
cues were missing, is finally coming to both LP and CD mastered from the
original 24-track studio recordings. From
the press release:
(3000 EDITION) (CD)
Composed by: John
La-La Land Records and
Taurus Entertainment present the restored, remixed and expanded re-issue of
composer John Harrison's (EFFECTS, DAY OF THE DEAD) iconic original score to
the 1982 horror classic CREEPSHOW, starring Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau and
Leslie Nielsen, written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero. Long
out-of-print and one of La-La Land's earliest, best-selling releases, CREEPSHOW
returns in an all-new limited edition supervised by the composer, re-sequenced
in film order and remixed from original 24 track elements. One of the most
beloved and influential horror scores of 80's horror, Mr. Harrison's CREEPSHOW
now sounds better than ever! Complimenting this assembly are exciting BONUS
TRACKS, showcasing several never-before-released and long-sought-after library
cues featured in the film, including the song "Don't Let Go" from the
movie's "Father's Day" segment. Produced by John Harrison and Ford A.
Thaxton, and mastered by James Nelson, this limited edition of 3000 Units
includes new and exclusive, in-depth liner notes from film music writer Jeff
Bond, composer John Harrison and director George A. Romero. Delightfully creepy
art design from Mark Banning ties all the macabre fun together.
