Now that my vinyl obsession is in full-swing, I'm especially happy to announce that we've landed an exclusive first-look at the latest offering from Waxwork Records, the company out of New Orleans responsible for this year's Re-Animator and Day of the Dead vinyls. The team there has been teasing a release of Christopher Komeda's score of the 1968 classic, Rosemary's Baby, and we have the details and package art, by Jay Shaw, to share with you.
Available on January 28, 2014, Rosemary's Baby will be available on clear 180 gram vinyl. The score has been remixed and mastered for vinyl from the original analog master tapes and is the definitive and most comphrehensive presentation.
Pre-orders will begin Tuesday, December 10th at WaxworkRecords.com. The package promises to contain in-depth liner notes and unreleased production stills as well.
Two limited variants will be available:
500 randomly inserted units pressed on 180 gram black and crystal clear center hazy vinyl.
The first 200 customers, meanwhile, will receive a special super variant of the score presented in a never-before-created, first of its kind vinyl effect: An independently double-colored/sided record. Side A features a baby blue marble. Side B features a deep blood red marble. This variant is a solid 12" LP (not two records connected together) and weighs 200 grams.
