Waxwork Records is beyond thrilled to present George A. Romero’s DAY OF THE DEAD Original Motion Picture Score on deluxe double vinyl. Originally released by Waxwork in 2013 and 2014, and selling out almost immediately, the score to George A. Romero’s DAY OF THE DEAD by composer John Harrison (Creepshow, Tales From The Dark Side) is 100% synth driven, dark, and blends elements of tropical compositions and atonal, droning electronic cues.
In 2013, Waxwork Records and composer John Harrisonunearthed the original, lost 1985master tapes containing the complete DAY OF THE DEAD film score from the attic of a recording studio in Pittsburgh, PA. After painstakingly restoring, mixing, and mastering the complete musical cues for vinyl, Waxwork assembled a definitive and deluxe release of the film’s classic synth heavy score, approved by both the composer and director George A. Romero.
After receiving many requests from both Waxwork fans, and lovers of both horror cinema and film music, Waxwork Recordsis proud to re-issue the 2xLP DAY OF THE DEAD score, one of their most popular titles, on deluxe 180 gram “Blood Smear” vinyl, housed in an old style tip-on gatefold jacket with satin coating and UV spot gloss finish, liner notes by director George A. Romero, an 11”x22” art print featuring liner notes by composer John Harrison created in the form of the infamous “THE DEAD WALK!” newspaper front page featured in the film’s opening credits, and artwork by Jay Shaw.
