It’s been fun, but it looks like the fun is about to end. We have it on good authority that the much-beloved Tenebre vinyl LP released by Dagored is finally going out of print. Once they are gone from your local record stores, they are gone unless somebody in Italy changes their mind and decides to run up some more of these.
What does this mean for us, the rabid record collectors, Goblin junkies, soundtrack lovers everywhere? Unfortunately, in the same vein as the much sought-after release of The Beyond soundtrack, prices on any remaining copies of Tenebre on vinyl released by Dagored will probably go through the roof.
The Beyond OST soundtrack CD by Fabio Frizzi already sells for $199 US for a new, sealed copy. That is utter MADNESS, don’t you think? Used copies of the CD sell for about $50. Will this also happen to the much beloved Tenebre soundtrack? Probably.
Turntabling itself has sold out of the Dagored vinyl release of Tenebre–it flew off our table at the HorrorHound Weekend show in Indianapolis, so alas there will be no profiteering from us thanks to the lack of Tenebre vinyl…however we are always looking for more copies and rest assured, if we find them we will put them up for sale here–without the $100 price tag, thank you very much!

We teased you with this earlier–accepting pre-orders for the Dagored 180 gram vinyl LP edition of the Profondo Rosso (Deep Red) soundtrack by Goblin. Wait no longer! We are now accepting orders for this fantastic soundtrack to one of Dario Argento’s best films. We have to warn you–this soundtrack is quickly vanishing from the market as people scoop it up. It won’t be long before it’s scarce again and our source for these says get them while you still can!
Dario Argento’s Profondo Rosso, also released in America as Deep Red, is one of our favorites. It’s loaded with prog sounds and if you’re addicted to them as we are, you will be pleased at the treasure trove of ’em on this delicious slab of vinyl. The two most popular selling artists on Turntabling–both at the booth at horror conventions and on the website–are Ennio Morricone and Goblin.
Part of the reason–so it seems to us–is that there’s such a diverse range of sounds to explore in both cases that you never grow tired of listening. Goblin in particular goes all over the map from Prog to Italian disco sounds, and in spite of some missteps along the way, Goblin is one of the greats in the wide world of soundtracks.
Now for sale at Turntabling: The Dagored release of John Carpenter’s Escape From New York. This is a gorgeous vinyl version of the OST written by John Carpenter, featuring some great unreleased tracks.
Carpenter scored many of his own films including Halloween, but this electronic beauty is 80s synth-heavy and has some nice ambient touches. The only complaint I have with this soundtrack is that Carpenter didn’t include Isaac Hayes (who played the heavy) into any of the main soundtrack elements–can you imagine what kind of funk Hayes would have brought to this?
This release came out in 2001, remastered and expanded from the original 80s version, and how about that cover art? It gets better–the gatefold cover is in the usual Dagored style, so if you’re a fan of these releases you shouldn’t be disappointed here.
Some sites are flogging this for $30. You can buy this sealed, new copy of the 2001 Dagored re-issue of the Escape From New York soundtrack here for $23 plus shipping. Don’t miss the trailer below–if you’re undecided about getting this, check out the fat analog synths on the trailer and just TRY to resist. They truly do not make trailers like this any more…unless your name is Quentin Tarantino.
