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.

Predator Ltd Edition Soundtrack Vinyl Review – Real Gone Music

Alan Silvestri's masterful score to the 1987 film Predator has been one of the most sought-after action film soundtracks of all time, sparking no less than three limited-edition CD releases that all successively sold out in short order. And it's little wonder; fresh from back-to-back triumphs with Romancing the Stone and Back to the Future, Silvestri employs a full orchestra, occasional, deft electronic touches, and most of all bruising percussion to fashion a score every bit as muscular and hard-hitting as the film itself. Among the truly inspired touches are the eerie, descending strings as the Predator descends to earth, the propulsive military march that introduces the commando team, and the simple trumpet fanfare in "He's My Friend" that laments the loss of a fallen comrade. The sound to our release is taken from Intrada's 2012 complete and definitive edition of the score, and it comes on blood red and neon green "Predator Blood" splatter vinyl limited to 1000 copies.
