Soundtrack to George A. Romero's 'Day of the Dead' Gets Reissued via Waxwork
Published Jun 20, 2013Following Waxwork Records' recent announcement that it will be pressing the Re-Animator soundtrack this summer, the label has unveiled another major movie score coup: it has acquired the rights to release a vinyl version of John Harrison's long out-of-print score to George A. Romero's Day of the Dead.
While it's unclear just when the reissue will hit shelves, Waxwork revealed its plans earlier today (June 20) over Twitter, confirming that its second release will be the Day of the Dead soundtrack. The label also posted a picture of the master tapes, which you can see up above.
According to Waxwork, the upcoming set features "Over 40 cues, over an hour of music." Ordering info has yet to be revealed.
Harrison's gloomy score to the dystopian, bunker-bound zombie flick was originally served up on wax in 1985 around the film's release, but has been out of print for nearly 30 years. A CD edition had been pressed up in 2002 via Numenorean Music.
Harrison's other soundtrack work includes Tales From the Darkside, Creepshow, and Tales from the Crypt.
Re-Animator, meanwhile, is due out on July 31.
