A NOTE FROM ALAN HOWARTH : The final score as it is heard in the film is actually an amalgamation of Morricone’s original orchestral music, his subsequent electronic material (the pulsating “Thing Theme”), and the droning ambiences created by Howarth and Carpenter. “Other than that one session I really didn’t have that much involvement with it,” said Howarth. “I just helped John make those cues, and then it was really up to John to sit down and cut all that stuff in and say I want it here and I want it there.” Click on the image below for buy the double vinyl
REVIEW :SOUND QUALITY 5/5 ARTWORK AND PACKAGING 4/5
MY FAVS/Best Tracks:
SIDE ONE 01.Main Title 02 Despair
SIDE TWO Humanity 03 Burn It 04 Solitude
SIDE THREE 01 Fucks – 02 To Mac’s Shack*
SIDE FOUR 01 Eternity 02 Contamination 03 Bestiality
In my view COMPARING it to the previous material from original MCA Album the pulsating TRACK“Thing Theme” Here available and named AT SIDE 1 TRACK 2MAIN THEME – DESOLATION – TRACK 3 HUMANITY II [Originally IS JUST HUMANITY II TRACK 8 OF MCA’s CD] is a little bit different AT FIRST HEARING AND IT could not be so great on SOUND DESIGN MATTER,SPECIALLY electronic beats.. but EVERYTHING have something of good and improved in to orchestral arrangements,this KIND OF feature IS reflected in every orchestral part of this new edition.Instead The electronic droning ambiences tracks created by Alan Howarth and John Carpenter are amazing,powerful,deafening and ARE the real core of the SENSE OF DREAD AND TERROR OF THE movie as we heard in THEATERS IN TO 1982 ,so in my part this LP is a must have.
John Carpenter’s 1989 cult car horror score is being reissued on vinyl for the first time.
TAKEN FROM THE VINYL FACTORY LIMITED GB : Originally released by Varèse Sarabande (VS-5240) , followed by a second Motown version that same year, Carpenter created the haunted moto-synthscapes for Christine with frequent collaborator Alan Howarth.
My contact on Varèse confirm : “Cats out of the bag, yep that’s us! We have commissioned new art and I must say it looks FANTASTIC! We’ll be announcing this on our Twitter and Facebook page WITH the new art on August 16th, join us then Fabio and SPREAD the word on this cool new vinyl product!

I FOUND IT IN TO GENOVA “OUT OF BUSINESSES SHOP”; THIS SOUNDTRACK IS THE RE OF SILVA SCREEN SILLP1493 BUT PRINTED AS ONE VINYL LP (NOT DOUBLE VINYL LP) AND IT COMES BY DAGORED RECORDS ITALY(RED 124 LP Barcode 8013252012419) ,IS VG+ MEDIA AND SLEEVE CONDITION ALBUM AND I WAS VERY SATISFY DUE THE BARGAIN WITH THE SELLER..
The listening experience is quite great the LPs sound of this edition is something of magic,there are very warm extension on bass frequencies and the highs really play great with my vintage Pioneer PL930 and Jbl LX44,BUT when I turn that for the B Side I discovered my copy have the B Side of another Lps from Dagored,to be more focused in my copy of Escape from NY i have record the B side of John Barry’s Game of Death(RED 121 LP) so I have Snake Plissken sharing room with Billy Chen ,and for that reason I guess if this is not a common error this Lp could be Rare as Unique!I don’t know if I will sell it for some undeniable offers for sure I will try to get another copy (complete) of this outstanding evergreen soundtrack by John Carpenter and Alan Howarth.
