Coming next Tuesday March 25, 2014 at 12 pm pst:

LLLCD 1283


One of La-La Land Records best-selling soundtracks (long out of print) gets a new and improved version for the Collector’s Marketplace – John Harrison’s score to George A. Romero’s Horror Classic CREEPSHOW. This new edition includes the original score completely remastered, resequenced in film order and remixed – supervised by composer John Harrison – from the original 24 tracks. As an added bonus, we have licensed several of the library cues fans have been dying to hear since the film came out in 1983! Clocking in at over 76 minutes, this Limited Edition soundtrack is filled with some of the most iconic horror music to ever grace the Silver Screen. New liner notes by Jeff Bond, as well as new essays by George A. Romero and John Harrison fill out the 24 page booklet design by art director Mark Banning.

This is the ONLY NEW TITLE we have going on sale next Tuesday, March 25, 2014 at 12 pm pst

The first 200 or so people who purchase the cd directly through the La-La Land website will receive a John Harrison signed booklet absolutely FREE. As always, quantities are limited and you are not guaranteed an autographed booklet.

See y'all next week!

Wait, so a best-seller's reissue isn't deserving of an initial markdown to ten cents? It's actually $19.98 once you scroll down? Outrageous. big grin

I am quite excited about the re-issue, though I had hoped Titus or Goldwasser would have handled the art design over Banning.

Mr. Banning had done quite a good job on the original release, but i do have an idea.

Why don't you do this, email Mr. Gerhard and Mr. Verboys (The owners of LA LA LAND) and explain to them their mistake by having him do it...

While bearing in mind that said ARTWORK was approved by them, Mr. Harrison, Myself and the copyright holder.....

Do you need their email?

I'll be happy to provide it.

BTW, I wasn't aware that you were in the loop and have seen the finished product yet in order to make an intelligent comment on it, you wouldn't post a comment like this without seeing now would you?

You post a message like this and you don't ask yourself who is being a "Dick?"

Wow, someone just doesn't see the irony in it.

I like the cover. It's the art that was used for the graphic novel illustrated by the supremely talented Bernie Wrightson.

I like this artwork too. The original was very cool as well, but... well... I own that one already.

Love the art from the Bernie Wrightson book.

Wasn't it also the art for Varese Sarabande's original LP?

It's not that I don't like this particular cover art; it's actually preferred, as I like the return to its comic book foundations. I just have a problem with the overall design decisions Banning is often behind with most of his projects. Again, it's merely a matter of preference. I think Titus and Goldwasser are much more prone to focusing on the details of the products, and that's always exciting for me.

I am hopeful Mr. Banning will rise to the occasion and do Creepshow the justice it deserves, in terms of eye popping, colorful graphics. If I can be critical without getting yelled at, I did not enjoy the art design on the previous edition, also by Banning. Creepshow is my all time favorite horror film, so I am really hopeful of a home run package that pays proper tribute to a film that oozes visual style and color.

Aside from the packaging, I am really looking forward to an all new listening experience. I've always noticed some subtle differences between the Soundtrack Album and the film cues.

Some questions I have...

Sound effects? (Thunder, laughter, weed growth, Crate sounds). Will they be gone?

Will the library cues be interspersed with the Harrison material, or on their own at the end?

Are there any famous or coveted library cues that were unavailable, or elusive?

Any cues that were dialed out of the film? Or other Easter Eggs?

I honestly can't wait.
