Firestarter (1984) Varese Sarabande 2022 Re-Issue Vinyl Score Review
Varèse Sarabande revisits the glory days of 1980s sci-fi “synthwave” with a new edition of Tangerine Dream’s classic electronic score for Firestarter (1984). This 11-track program—released on LP by MCA Records in 1984 and on CD by Varèse Sarabande in 1990—has been newly remastered for this long-awaited reissue. The new LP and CD packages also contain previously unused film stills and new liner notes by Randall D. Larson explaining how the band did not score to picture but created “wild” cues to be used by the film’s music editors. The LP comes pressed on stunning “Fuego” colored vinyl. The re-issues of the Firestarter Original Motion Picture Soundtrack are available exclusively at VareseSarabande.com and Intl.VareseSarabande.com.
