Waxwork Records is putting this out in time for this week’s New York Comic-Con but there’s no word yet about a CD or digital release.

TMNT and LP's -- a double whammy of the 1990's.

1990... vinyl?

Yeah, CD's were still coming in, at least in the stores I saw.

Hopefully this is just a nice precursor to the eventual CD from LLL.

I was just watching this movie and admiring the score the other day (of course, that's not a rare occurrence - this score is always at least in the back of my head), and wondering when in the world we'd get a release of it.

Hopefully we'll get it in CD format later... but in the meantime I'm just glad we'll finally have all those great cues. The Main Titles when we get our first look at the Turtles in the sewer, the circus-like theme for the battle with the Foot in April's apartment, the tear-jerking, atmospheric cue when the Turtles have their vision of Splinter at the campfire, the "It's Time To Go Back" bridge when they return to New York, and the movie version of the Shredder battle ("This guy knows where Splinter is!")... it's going to be amazing.

There's a lot of good stuff in there but I'd buy a release just for this.

From the link above:

Though the label did confirm to us that no CD or digital plans are in motion, we’ll be sure to let you know if and when one’s announced!

Just a little oddity I noticed:

One of the cues I was most looking forward to on this album was the "Time To Go Back" bridge. It's basically a revisiting of a cue from a few minutes earlier in the film, when the Turtles are training on the farm, but with louder percussion and without the synthesized koto (or whatever traditional Japanese instrument that's supposed to be, I'm not as well-versed in this as I should be).

But what's heard on the vinyl release is different from what's in the movie. The percussion is comparatively muted and for some reason, the Japanese instrument is present when it shouldn't be. It sounds more like they just took the training cue and changed the pitch and edited it. I'm dying to know what happened here.

Pure utter speculation, but perhaps what you are hearing is how the cue was originally recorded for the film. The version is the film may have used the take without percussion overlays and moved the overlays as the editor thought worked.

It'll pick up more nicks than a manhole cover with that sleeve, but dang there it is.

A release from LLL would have no doubt presented alternates, a considerable booklet, etc. Oh well. Good to see it!

I listened to the samples, and it seems like I remembered more of this score than I thought I would. It's pretty mind-boggling to think that the score has never been released before now (and I had no idea this was out from October on vinyl, either), and so I'm really happy to see Waxwork Records putting it out on CD as well rather than simply confining it to a trendy LP release in several variants.

One thing that really amused me is that the track "Crimewave", has some very strong similarities to the score for A Fish Called Wanda two years earlier, and of course, on looking it up, John Du Prez scored that film, as well. In fact, it would seem that the three Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films are sort of an anomaly in his filmography.

Now all I need is for someone to put some or all of Unsolved Mysteries on CD, given that I did buy that 3-LP set from Terror Vision last year.

Original poster should change this thread title to ... now on CD
I think a lot of FSM members may not even open a thread thinking is only out on vinyl

That was true at the time. Now it's revised.

Well, this is a turn up for the books.

Ryan Paquet will spontaneously combust in this thread shortly.

Are Waxwork titles limited? No mention on the website.
