I'm VERY excited to get this, along with the new score by Elias for the sequel. You nice folks, you better order this one quickly as this will sell out rather fast, I'm sure.

Like I said, gone by the morning, but aren't you a little pissed DMD that Varese
is releasing that new fangled version in a week, and now we have to shell out
17 bucks for this one too?

Yes, I bought both and now have that damnable children's chorus running through
my brain.......

I also ordered both! I'm glad I never caved in to buying the LP. Great release!

Look forward to old and new Elias wink

I'm not too upset about the new one, it will be interesting to hear another newer take on his themes and pretty cool it's by the same composer, Elias. If anyone was thinking about buying just one of them, I would of course say, BUY the original.

Scores a lot, I have been tracking the LP on ebay and almost bought it today, glad I didn't. As a movie convention is coming up and two stars from the film are going to be there, so now I can get them to sign it, YAAAA

Lol, always with the signing wink

Yeah, the LP did go for high prices in mint condition. I always figured it would get a re-release so I'm glad it finally did. My Stephen King collection is not complete without it!

Never saw a copy of the LP myself, but have had a really nice CDR transfer
for years. Still pissed those deleted scenes featured on the artwork have
NEVER shown up......

Ironically enough I was enjoying his excellent synth pop ensemble work for
VAMP earlier tonight, what a great record....and on the flip side caught up with
the film of PATHFINDER a couple weeks ago which is really weak faux-Zimmer
noisy daiko drumming and wailing vocals. I expected more from Elias, but that
one, aside from the finale perhaps, is a real dog......and on the other side of THAT,
I must HIGHLY recommend THE PRAYER CIRCLE, a non-soundtrack with orchestra
and numerous famous vocalists, that is really worth hearing, and miles away from
his soundtrack work. Surely it can be found for a buck at Amazon.com, check it
out if you like his stuff!!!

I've definitely been waiting for this one for a long time. Had the vinyl transferred a few years ago and it sounds really decent, but I much prefer a legit CD.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to walk behind a few rows... or at least get some sleep. big grin

Cheers, everyone.

I have owned the LP since it's original release. I have always enjoyed it!
Glad to finally be able to put the LP into safe storage and enjoy the CD!

Are they going to GET me?

Speaking of GETTING, think of all the dough Stephen King has made off this short story.

Also, notice that the "ph" in Stephen is sort of a pussy version of "v" as used in my name Steven.

I once had a Stephen King compilation with a suite of this and I remember liking it. I think I even considered it the highlight of said disc. It had elements of the "delicious darkness" that I like (really the ONLY type of horror film music that I can enjoy on CD). However, in relistening to the sound clips, I'm not so sure anymore. Perhaps this is more traditional than I had thought, with lots of sneaking-around music and stingers?

Just to be on the safe side, I think I'll pass on it.

A funky bit o' serendipity, here: I caught the film yesterday on Encore and looked up the original album online. While a part of me thinks they should've had the original score alongside the remake score on one CD (a la MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE), this is a nice surprise.

Lol.

Funny you should mention this. I was watching the extra's of "The Mist" this week where director Frank Darabont confessed that he initially pronounced "Stephen" as "steffen" because of the ph, of course it should be pronounced as Steven but he didn't know that. I did the same thing when I first read his name and it took me a while to make the switch.

I knew this score about four years ago. I was hoping that Varese released it on cd someday. It´s seems for me so perfect this tie in: the old version on cd club and the remake as a regular release.

I'm not upset at all, but my bank account certainly is!!!! smile

Boy, haven't heard CORN before now. The main title sure sounds like HALLOWEEN was a major influence.
(Yeah, I know, "go away, you old fart!")

A.W.E.S.O.M.E.!!!
Was waiting for it to come out! It has been a fav' of mine along THE RUSSKIES and THE BELIEVERS, for so many years!
All 3 are now out on CDs, finally the wait is over!

Let's hide in the corn field, I need to make some pop-corns (damn, am I turning into DMD? big grin )

Just pulled out my lp. Still in plastic, with J&R music label still attached. Album in brand new condition after having it since the 80s.
