BUYSOUNDTRAX Records will be releasing YOR, THE HUNTER FROM THE FUTURE, featuring music composed by John Scott (GREYSTOKE: THE LEGEND OF TARZAN, THE FINAL COUNTDOWN, THE PEOPLE THAT TIME FORGOT) and additional music composed by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis (KEOMA, A MAN CALLED BLADE, THE BLACK CORSAIR) for the 1983 camp science fiction classic directed by Antonio Margheriti (CANNIBAL APOCALYPSE, TAKE A HARD RIDE), from the graphic novel series HENGA, IL CAZADOR, written by Ray Collins and illustrated by Juan Zanotto, starring Reb Brown (CAPTAIN AMERICA, UNCOMMON VALOR, SPACE MUTINY), Corrine Clery (THE STORY OF O, MOONRAKER), Luciano Pigozzi and John Steiner in the part of The Overlord.

The film tells the story of YOR (Brown), a great hunter who wears a mysterious golden medallion and has no memory of his past. Yor comes to the rescue of a primitive tribe and learns of the existence of another person who has a medallion like his. His new friends are attacked by a tribe of mysterious Ape Men and the beautiful Ka-Laa (Clery) is abducted. Yor sets off to save her, with the help of her guardian, Pag (Piggozi). After rescuing Ka-Laa (with help from a recently deceased pterodactyl), Yor continues his journey to find the other person who carries the same medallion he wears. Yor finds the object of his search in the form of Queen Roa, living amongst a strange tribe of fire worshippers. Rescuing Roa from the Fire People, she joins Yor and his friends but finds herself in conflict with Ka-Laa who wants Yor for herself. After Roa is mortally wounded when they are ambushed by the Ape Men, she reveals to him that they both come from the same place: a castle on a mysterious island, in the middle of a great ocean and Yor resumes his quest. While they are resting in a fishing village, the villagers are attacked by armor-clad men, carrying advanced weapons. Yor and his friends take a boat through a great storm to the mysterious island, where he discovers the truth about his past. The island houses the remains of a technologically advanced society, ruled by the dark Overlord (Steiner). His past revealed, Yor is forced to choose between his new friends or to become a part of the Overlord’s Great Plan to take over the world.

YOR is an ambitious mash-up of sword and sorcery, prehistoric fantasy and post-apocalyptic science fiction. Originally designed as a mini-series for Italian television, IL MONDO DI YOR was comprised of four hour-long episodes, from which the feature film version was culled. The producers of YOR initially hired composer John Scott to write a traditional orchestral score but realized they were going to need more music for the project and hired Italian composers Guido and Maurizio De Angelis to compose additional music. The De Angelis Brothers chose a musical approach that mixed pop tunes, electronic rhythms and gentle orchestral melodies, along with a theme song for the hero of the piece. Ultimately, very little of John Scott’s music ended up being used in the film version of YOR and even the music composed by the De Angelis Brothers was modified, cropped and moved around in the film’s final mix.

Previously released on a scarce compact disc by Label X in 1993 which contained only John Scott’s music for the film, BUYSOUNDTRAX now presents a new release of YOR, THE HUNTER FROM THE FUTURE that includes John Scott’s music and, for the first time on compact disc, the music of the De Angelis Brothers as well, including the classic song “Yor’s World”. YOR, THE HUNTER FROM THE FUTURE is a limited edition release of 1000 units.

YOR, THE HUNTER FROM THE FUTURE is available for pre-order at www.buysoundtrax.com for $15.95 and is expected to start shipping on August 25th, 2011.

John Scott's score is terrific. Nice to have the "salon des refuses" suite broken up. I'm very happy to upgrade. I have a soft spot for the electronic score as well. What a horribly great theme song!

I'm stoked you retained the great LP cover art. This has got to be the most exciting BSX release for me since Lifeforce. Thanks guys!!!

Anyone who appreciates John Scott should snap this one up. I haven't got time for the bonus electronic stuff, but Scott's orchestral score is worth the price of the CD on its own.

I just hope the two tracks listed as Yor's Theme and Yor's Theme (reprise) are different takes, rather than the very same recording (both are marked as 1:37). Having to listen to two playings of the exact same track in one listening session is an irritant (which another recent release perpetrated on us).

@BSX Your links go to your root directory where all your sound samples are located. Was that intended? confused

The track "Yor's World" is four minutes and thirty-five seconds of pure perfection.

Hmmm, main theme reminds me a bit of the final movement of Beethoven's 6th Symphony.

But damn, I might get this. Great samples.
