How much music was used in this movie that would fill up a LP let alone CD? I really don’t remember any music in the movie outside of the Tubular Bells snippet and some choral pieces (the song the Gemini Killer sings and the end credits).

That's what I was asking earlier but I guess its all how you define 'music'.


I feel like a soundtrack to this movie would also include dialogue. Unless, there’s a lot of music composed but not used?


I guess we’ll see. A 2LP edition does seem a bit bizarre for this though.
On the other points previously made about formats above, i ‘ve got to admit i just want the music. I’d like it to be on a cd but I’ll happily take a download or vinyl if thats all thats on offer.(i usually end up ripping it and listening to it digitally anyway) It’s getting to hear the music thats important. I genuinely scratch my head when i read people not going to buy title ‘x’ because the packaging isn’t what they want!

Are you saying that the packaging and the format are the same thing?

I'm wondering where 2lps came from?

The press release says Phantasm is a multi vinyl set - but nothing on Exorcist 3.

I don't think he's meant that, though I agree he said that.
If you are equipped to play and/or convert any format, it obviously may not matter as much what format a recording is released as. And you may overlook that not everybody is set up to play/convert any format.

Yes, sorry for the confusion. I didn’t mean they were the same thing. I can understand the frustration of someone that hasn’t got a vinyl setup if thats what their wanted score only comes out on. I was just taking it a bit further in the love of the actual music argument, as I’ve read here in the past folk saying they’re not buying a cd due to it being put out in a digipack instead of a jewel case! For some it seems to be more about having the ‘thing’ rather than getting the music. The downloads are the same. If you don’t have a good set-up for listening to digital releases well of course fair enough you might not be keen but that ‘no cd no sale’ thing can also just be format stubbornness.

Hi Sean,


We release CDs when the license allows. Not sure yet if Phantasm and The Exorcist III will be getting the CD treatment, but I wouldn't rule it out!


Best,

Sue

I wanted to let those who care about my blabbering, I am going to buy this on vinyl and will do my very best to share my thoughts, hopefully clear enough to sway you as to whether it's worth a hear.

That its horror, 90s, at this moment a real puzzle as to WHAT it is, and the work of rather good composer Barry DeVorzon....I'm feeling good about this!

Keep watching the skies...
-Sean

Thanks, Brotron 3000. Looking forward to your report, even though it won't convince me to buy a record player!

Same! I look forward to your review Sean. Very curious what the contents are.

Yep I'll be buying too....UNLESS..it just turns out to be one of those 'dialogue' track releases where its like the whole thing is just lifted off the film's track.

Is there any more fresh news on this?

For me, the big deal is getting the proper version of "Come Falda Di Neve" that was used in the film.
In the movie the song was artificially extended, so I don't necessarily need that.
But having the original recording would be fantastic.
I find that piece absolutely captivating.

Waxwork posted a peek at some artwork last week on IG, so it's underway!
No further, useful, news unfortunately.

They posted more about Phantasm before this, so that might happen first.

Please forgive my ignorance on this subject, but other than when another company is already releasing a title on another format (CD, digital download, cassette, 8-track, etc) what would preclude a licensor from granting a license for that title to be released on a format other than vinyl?

For instance Terror Vision claimed that they asked the licensor for “Freddy’s Nightmares “ about other formats and he “wasn’t interested”. Does it first the licensor more or dip into their cut or something? If not, simply “not being interested” just seems like a dick move.

That may deter some people, but this is going to be an awesome release for those with a turntable. The cover art/packaging is fantastic. This score is the most unsettling variety of ambient soundscapes. It’s really great stuff (if you know what to expect). My team helped (a small bit) with the album and there was some bewilderment about how to present it in a form that makes sense.

Yeah, and those without one are shit out of luck. It's asinine in fucking 2024 to only do vinyl. I can't help but be reminded of Disney telling people inquiring about the Dial of Destiny CD that they still had LPs available. No shit? Well, that does fuck all for people who don't listen to records.

The future sucks.
