Anyone here who owns this?

Is it worth the money? No copies cheaper than 15 Euros.

Alas no, but would have been great to have. When I first heard about this some time back, I thought it was a boot, but appears it's legit enough.

Definitely legit, and a great followup to the first CD - though somewhat darker and moodier. The whole album can be heard here (and, I believe, on Spotify as well):

I remember also scouring through some TWIN PEAKS site at some point, with hours upon hours of unreleased music from the show. I think it was all legit too. Maybe it's from that site that this "Volume 2" set grew? Any behind-the-scenes details of this set would be welcome.

The season 2 disc was released on CD by Absurda and DavidLynch.com in 2007, very much official. Lynch and Badalamenti were EPs and Lynch did the artwork. This is the version I have. It has been rereleased once or twice since then by various labels including, I believe, on vinyl record. It’s similar to the OST in that it is arranged to some extent for listening (I.e some tracks are edited together - but due to the nature of some of the tracks, there are quite a few short burst tracks. There is also some audio data written in the CD pre-gap on this, a weird bonus track trick. It is very much worth 15 Euro imo.


Thor, the “Twin Peaks Archive” was a complete or near-complete digital release on DavidLynch.com (again, officially) in 2010-2011 with weekly drops of either single tracks or “packets” of related tracks. It included tons of completely unreleased stuff, multiple takes of classic tracks, and isolated tracks of stuff that is merged together on the three albums (TO, S2&more, FWWM) with clean starts and stops. It runs 214 tracks, 9 hours and 53 minutes according to my iTunes album. You wouldn’t want to sit and listen to it all in a sitting, but there were some real gems in there! I don’t think these are legally obtainable anymore though. More info for that here: https://welcometotwinpeaks.com/music/twin-peaks-archive-david-lynch/


Edit - It also appears to be currently in print on Rhino - on CD, vinyl, and streaming. The CD pregap bonus tracks just appear to be weird individual tracks on that release - https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07QYQ4GKR/ref=tmm_fbs_acd_title_0?ie=UTF8&&qid=&&sr=
The artwork there is weird, but again it’s clearly Lynch’s work.
From that page: “The missing piece in the incredibly successful new release and reissue campaign for the Twin Peaks series has been the mysterious soundtrack to Season Two! The TV program aired in 1990-1991, without the traditional accompanying record release, and it was not until 2007 that the soundtrack album was issued, and only as a very limited CD via David Lynch’s own label. And so we have an artefact that has never been available on digital services, and more importantly, never on vinyl, and long gone on CD. And so there is nothing more ready for plugging into the set of Twin Peaks releases from Rhino, especially following on from the acclaimed pair of Season 3 soundtrack albums from 2017! Once again we have David Lynch himself overseeing the reissue pressed on 180g vinyl & with stills from the film included in the gatefold jacket. This is a release that will be eagerly embraced by Twin Peaks fans, & a great addition to our much beloved Twin Peaks catalog”

Yes, the so-called "Twin Peaks Archive" was available for quite a while on the David Lynch website, but the link apparently no longer works. However, it currently appears on archive.org and can also be heard on YouTube.

This excellent fan link has detailed track listings:

And this blog goes into forensic detail about all of the cues and includes custom CD art (rabbit hole alert!):

What? There was most definitely an accompanying record release. It was my first-ever instrumental soundtrack, copied to cassette from the CD in 1991 or 1992 or thereabout. Or does the text refer to something else?

Thanks for reminding me of the website's name. Twin Peaks Archives. Shame it's not available anymore.

Unless they are referring to a vinyl album, that is most certainly an error. I bought the soundtrack CD the moment it was released back in 1990. smile

I neglected to add that it is one of my all-time favorite TV soundtracks (and shows).

Some copywriter for Rhino obviously didn’t have their TP lore straight. Maybe they meant to/should have said “season” instead of “program.”

Perhaps they mean that a Season 2 soundtrack was not released in 90/91.

I just re-read the notes and I think you're correct, as Season 2 was '90-91. The way they wrote it was a little confusing..!

It's 71 minutes of typical Badalamenti/Lynch lo-fi 50s style weirdness.
If you liked TWIN PEAKS and its music, you will like this.
It's got tracks from the series that were never released before and that's cool.
It's a bit of a concept album, with reimagined score and songs and like I say, it's mostly 50s style tunes and riffs crossed with their usual surreal/dream ambience.
Nice colour booklet with lots of stills from the TV show and its characters* and a little (very little) bit of chat.
One for the fans most definitely.


* I'd forgotten how many fit young women this show had wink
