Full details emerge of Spencer Hickman’s latest horror flick soundtrack reissues.
Following the announcement at the end of August that Death Waltz Recording Co. would be reissuing director/composer John Carpenter’s epic score to low-budget thriller Assault On Precinct 13, Spencer Hickman’s prolific soundtrack label have revealed full details of the release, overseen by Carpenter himself and pressed to 180gram blood-red and vanilla swirl vinyl.
As well as sleeve design by acclaimed artist Jay Shaw, Assault on Precinct 13 will include an eight-page fold-out booklet and poster with educational sleeve notes from Carpenter, star Austin Stoker as well as two essays from British film composer Clint Mansell. [via Exclaim]
Unlikely to take themselves too seriously any time soon, Death Waltz’s reissue of New York Ripper – a 1982 Italian giallo b-movie about a knife-wielding maniac with the voice of Donald Duck – is being billed as a single LP “duck-coloured vinyl”, caged in a heavyweight tip-on sleeve with a poster and 4-page booklet thrown in.
Assault on Precinct 13 will be released on 18th November, while New York Ripper is available for pre-order now in time for its 22nd October release.
