With several Bernard Herrmann scores already reissued on the label, Stylotone has isolated two iconic cues from the film, pairing ‘Prelude,’ which accompanies the opening titles, with ‘The Murder’, perhaps the most recognisable and enduring film soundtrack moment of all time.
Referenced and parodied for almost six decades, the screeching strings of the shower scene has become the defining sound of terror on screen. The 7″ will be pressed to black vinyl and is limited to 1960 copies.
