Earlier in the month we brought the new that Waxwork Records was releasing a brand new CREEPSHOW vinyl; we also showed off a small sample of terrific artwork from Gary Pullin that would accompany the record. Today brings a new batch of goodies regarding the release, including more art and details.
The following comes from Waxwork Records' press release, while the art comes courtesy of Rue Morgue:
WAXWORK RECORDS is thrilled to announce their next LP release to the 1982 horror anthology classic, CREEPSHOW. The film was directed by George A. Romero and written by Stephen King. The score was composed and performed by John Harrison (DAY OF THE DEAD, TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE). This definitive release of the film score has never before been released. The original master tapes of the CREEPSHOW film score were lost for over 30 years, but with the efforts of composer John Harrison and Waxwork Records, the tapes were located in the attic of Jeree Recording Studios in New Brighton, PA. The tapes remained in remarkable shape over the years and were re-mixed and re-mastered for vinyl. The CREEPSHOW score has never sounded this good.
LP package details include:Heavyweight casebound tip-on gatefold jacket with a satin coating Director essay from George A. Romero
Composer essay from John Harrison
A built-in booklet featuring production stills, artwork, and liner notes A satin coated 12×12 art print of The Creeper
Full album packaging artwork by Ghoulish Gary Pullin
