John Carpenter remasters 13 classic themes for new greatest hits album

As some of you may know by now, I'm not one for buying vinyl but I just might have to snag up this awesome new John Carpenter "Greatest Hits" record coming out October 20th.

The collection is called John Carpenter Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 and gathers together 13 classic Carpenter movie themes re-mixed, re-recorded, and re-mastered for the first time.

The remastered movie themes collected include HALLOWEEN, THE FOG, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, PRINCE OF DARKNESS, and my personal favorite ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13.

You can check out the full rundown on the collection below - including the track list - and then make sure to let us know which Carpenter score is your favorite on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

John Carpenter Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 rundown:

John Carpenter is a legend. As the director and composer behind dozens of classic movies, Carpenter has established a reputation as one of the greatest filmmakers in the history of modern cinema, as well as one of its most influential musicians. The minimal, synthesizer-driven themes to films like Halloween, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 are as indelible as their images, and their timelessness was evident as Carpenter performed them live in a string of internationally sold-out concert dates in 2016. Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 collects 13 classic themes from Carpenter’s illustrious career together on one volume for the first time. Each theme has been newly recorded with the same collaborators that Carpenter worked with on his hit Lost Themes studio albums: his son, Cody Carpenter, and godson, Daniel Davies.
