Horror film soundtrack time! Seeing as though everyone is shitting themselves left right and center to either release or buy horror soundtracks you can now sorta hear where it all started with this spanky new reissue of The Bride Of Frankenstein. Here’s a few bits of info...
The film came out in 1935 and it starred Boris Karloff
It was directed by James Whale (not the knob who used to be on Radio Aire)
The music was composed by Franz Waxman who also did the scores to ‘Jekyll & Hyde’, ‘The Nun’s Story’ and ‘Hands off Barry, I Mean it Barry, Hands Off Before I Cut Them Off You Dick.’
OK that’s enough facts! This is the 1st press numbered of 500 copies on orange vinyl. The music is classical but then it it was from 1935. It’s like a dark evil Disney soundtrack for a giant berk with nuts and bolts in his head. It’s definitely a curio and we’re not expecting this first time ever on vinyl release to hang about for too long after the Record Store day single sold out after being open for 5 mins. It’s haunting me, it really is.

A gorgeous new recording of Franz Waxman's iconic score is presented here on a limited edition textured orange (not block colour) vinyl.
This recording features a brand-new reconstruction and re-orchestrating of Clifford Vaughan's original orchestrations by Tony Bremner and Soren Hyldegaard, including elements not featured in the final film - which was heavily edited before release, losing key scenes and scoring.
Included with this album are some very good liner notes explaining the background to the original film, the music and the new recording - printed on the reverse of the notes is one of the original Universal film posters from 1935.
Basically, it's a lovely version of a gorgeously memorable score and the only reason it's not got a 10 is because it's not the original 1935 recordings.
