Cameron Crowe Resurrects Harold and Maude Soundtrack
Published Feb 06, 2008Few movie soundtracks stand the test of time - the score to BloodRayne anyone? - but there are a select few that stick with fans for, say, 36 years or so. The fan in this case is writer/director Cameron Crowe, who has unearthed the musical selections from Hal Ashby's endearing May-December classic, Harold and Maude, to give us the film's very first official soundtrack release.
Composed by Cat Stevens, the soundtrack is now being released by Crowe's Vinyl Films production company - and apparently budding record label - as a limited multi-coloured LP (only 2500 copies are being pressed) that contains every song from the film, as well as alternate versions, extensive interviews, posters, a 36-page booklet (containing never-before-seen photos) and a limited edition seven-inch of "Don't Be Shy" and "If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out."
