New in stock at the Turntabling shop at Discogs.com! Ennio Morricone’s amazing, experimental and barrier-breaking soundtrack for Gli Occhi Freddi Della Paura, also known in the USA as Cold Eyes Of Fear. There’s also the Clint Mansell (Pop Will Eat Itself) soundtrack vinyl for In The Wall, plus a delicious blue-and-black colored vinyl copy of the soundtrack to the awesomely bizarre Perfume of the Woman In Black.
Giallo soundtrack vinyl is always a wonderful find, and these limited edition releases on Dagored are sure to go fast. These are just a few of the new titles in stock, have a look at the Turntabling shop to see plenty of other rare, weird, and awesome vinyl.
And how about that stunning artwork by Ken Taylor? Joe Spinnell leering at you from the cover is totally iconic. The original poster is excellent, but this album cover could become THE defining image for the film. This specific release is destined to be legendary and extremely collectible–it’s a heavyweight 200 gram vinyl record and limited to only 500 copies.
325 of those copies were pressed on black vinyl, with the remaining 175 copies pressed on clear vinyl with red mixed in. Those special copies are random, there’s no way to tell whether your copy is black vinyl or the colored vinyl.
The score itself is pretty fascinating. Shades of experimental Morricone, Goblin, but above all Jay Chattaway’s own unique take on quietly creepy atmospherics. If you’re looking for an excess of overly bombastic sounds and “gotcha” stings, you’re in the wrong place–take a listen for yourself:
This particular release is sure to be prized, and they have virtually disappeared from the shelves near as we can tell. Kudos to Alamo Drafthouse Cinema for getting this out–it’s an amazing piece of work!
Posts have been minimal lately due to the prep for HorrorHound Weekend in Ohio–looking forward to an excellent extended weekend with vinyl and horror fans alike, starting tomorrow (Thursday) when I hit the road (a bit early, yes). When Turntabling gets back from the show the usual posts will begin again as usual…if you want the latest from the show, join me on my Facebook page for photos and updates. I post often when the reception is good.
The next big news for Turntabling after HorrorHound Weekend is Vinyl Road Rage #4, which departs Chicago on December 8 to hit and blog about indie record shops between Chi-town and Dallas, Texas. A full itinerary will be announced next week including a list of record shop stops planned.
As of now the route includes Nashville, Tennessee for a stop at the legendary Grimey’s, then a hop over to Memphis, then on to Little Rock Arkansas. Then it’s to Norman, Oklahoma for a look at Guestroom Records-a place long on the wish list for Vinyl Road Rage.
After Oklahoma it’s off in search of awesome indie record shops in Dallas, Fort Worth, Denton, Tulsa Oklahoma, Kansas City, and then a stopover in Springfield, Illinois to Recycled Records. After Springfield, it’s the final four hour home stretch back to Chicago.
Does that trip sound a bit crazy to you? It starts on the 8th of December and ends on the 21st. I must add that I’ll be blogging the entire way–including some video on the Turntabling YouTube Channel, which is linked to the right of this post at the top where all the social media icons are 🙂
Turntabling is at HorrorHound Weekend in Cincinnati. I’ve got the usual table full of vinyl rarities and oddities. This time out the table includes the vinyl Game of Death soundtrack on Dagored Records, Motorhead on vinyl, Goblin titles including the now out-of-print Tenebre, Dawn of the Dead and Suspiria on vinyl…plus some Morricone naturally, the vinyl El Topo soundtrack and too many others to name.
This is by far one of the coolest things for sale here at Turntabling. Otto, or Up With Dead People, is a zombie movie with a few MAJOR twists. The best one is that part of the film is told from the zombie’s point of view. The soundtrack to this zombie movie by Bruce la Bruce is full of amazing electronic and experimental sounds evened out by great tracks by The Homophones and the Living Dead Boys. Appearing on the soundtrack–Pandas of Black Metal, La Jovenc, No Bra, Misty Roses, Eyes and Teeth and many more.
–Minor spoiler alert here–
Otto or Up With Dead People is not an easy zombie movie to watch for some who might feel a bit uncomfortable with the more explicit scenes (the sex/cannibalism element is really well done) but it’s an EXCELLENT film. It’s a frequent player in the Turntabling DVD machine and we highly recommend it. The soundtrack is so cool we’re shocked that it’s even available on vinyl these days–thought all these would be have been snapped up ages ago.
We were sold out of this awesome slab of 180 gram vinyl goodness, but we have a new supply of the Dagored reissue Dawn of the Dead vinyl LP. This album is one of our all-time best selling titles and a Turntabling favorite. Dawn of the Dead still packs a punch after all these years–there’s nothing quite like it. For all its influence, no other film (even the remake) has come close to capturing the claustrophobia and comedy of the zombie apocalypse.
Romero may have set the bar with Night of the Living Dead, but for some of us die-hard Dawn fans, this is THE film to see. A movie that takes itself seriously but doesn’t come across heavy-handed, has genuinely funny moments without stooping to the lowest common demoninator.
As for the soundtrack, Goblin seems to be in a strange twilight zone between Suspiria and Tenebre when it comes to the compositions. This album sounds like no other–Goblin uses the synth to good effect here, and while the 4 piece guitar/bass/keyboard/drums approach is the main event here, this one doesn’t sound like a rock combo–unlike the Tenebre soundtrack where it’s clear this is a four piece band. Dawn of the Dead manages to be more than a combo but something short of an orchestral thing. A fun anomaly.
Now for sale here at Turntabling: The Horror Films Collection Volume Two, a CD featuring tracks from Lady Frankenstein, Zombie, The New York Ripper, Conquest, and many others. It’s a Lucio Fulci-fest, including two tracks from his “compilation” movie Cat In The Brain at least one of which you may recognize from The Beyond.
This is a fun collection of tracks from Piero Piccioni, Claudio Simonetti, Manuel De Sica and many other well known Italian soundtrack names. The Horror Films Collection Volume Two is a good companion disc to the Goblin greatest hits collections also sold here–put the discs in your changer, hit “shuffle” and be immersed in the sounds of vintage 60s and 70s Italian horror.
