Escape From New York Original and Expanded Releases/John Carpenter

Sorry for the delay people. It's been awhile and I said there would be lots in store for Halloween. I have some catching up to do. However, I've been terribly busy with my own music career and various other things.

When I bought the Escape From New York soundtrack years ago it was the expanded version and it quickly became one of my all time favorite scores to listen to. Then I watcedh the movie again and noticed a significant difference between the instrumentation of certain cues on the Expanded Release and the film. Especially the Main Titles.

After doing some research I found that the way out of print original release contained the versions as they appeared in the film. Thankfully for me I remembered a used CD store I had been in the week before had a copy of the original Varese Release.

Needless to say I snagged that baby.

The Expanded release is fantastic as it's remastered and features some great tracks not available on the original release but the original release features some stuff not available on the Expanded.

Pros and Cons to both. That's why yet again, it's nice to have both versions.

The Fog 35 Track Bootleg & Official Expanded Release/John Carpenter

Here is another nice double whammy for the Halloween Season.

The bootleg provided here features every cue of music in the film... even all the radio broadcast music. All of the stuff that you missed on the Varese and Silva Screen Editions are HERE. This is good stuff!

The official release by Silva Screen was an expanded version of the Varese release. I have provided this as well. The mastering work is nice and these tracks are a lot more straightforward of course than the bootleg which had a lot of cutoffs here and there due to the editing of the film from which it was taken straight from. Of course at the same time a lot of music is missing even on this expanded release which you will find on the bootleg. Pros and Cons to both versions. That's why you NEED both.

With both you are set with one of John Carpenter's finest entries in film scoring. The Fog was Carpenter at his prime.

Assault On Precinct 13 Bootleg & Official Release/John Carpenter

I have a special double take on the same film here.

First up is the 27 Track Bootleg. It contains every single cue in the film (at least from what I can tell). Down to the ice cream truck music. Seriously. It doesn't get more complete than that. The sound quality I feel is pretty damn good. Some cues drop off and come back in but this is probably due to the editing of the film what with having to lower the music over dialog etc. This version is around 33 minutes long.

Years later I come across an official French release for the film that contains 16 tracks and is around 25 minutes long. Sound quality is better of course and contains all of the memorable stuff.

Even the complete bootleg is only complete by 8 minutes and in all honesty it can get pretty repetitive if you aren't an asshole completist like me.

Track Listing For The Bootleg:
01. Main Title (02:56) 
02. Blood Oath (01:55)

03. Boarding the Bus (00:51)

04. Street Thunder (01:23)
05. Precinct 9 Division 13 (01:01)

06. Targets (02:07)

07. Ice Cream Man on Edge (01:34)

08. Wrong Flavor (01:01)

09. Discovery (01:04)

10. Emergency Stopover (00:57)

11. Lawson's Revenge (01:02)

12. Sanctuary (01:02)

13. The Siege (00:27)

14. Calm (00:54)

15. Marked for Something (01:50)

16. Second Wave Part 1 (00:23)
17. Second Wave Part 2 (00:27)

Phantasm IV: Oblivion/Christopher L. Stone

Just watched this flick today for the first time and I think it may be my favorite sequel. It has a little bit more of the flavor the original had. A lot of scenes where you don't know whether it's a dream or not (maybe the entire series is one big bad dream).

A very ambiguous ending by the way, if you haven't seen it, but this just added to the reasons why I liked it. Oh yeah, and the sphere boobs scene. Classic.

I don't think there is anything available as far as Phantasm III goes. From what I have found out, III just used the score from II and there were a couple of scenes with original material.

The score for IV was an original score written by Christopher L. Stone. It has it's moments. Nothing like Fred Myrow's classic original and almost on par with all the sequels scores. It's something you'll like if you're a fan. And it doesn't make for bad spooky background music at all.

This is a 16 track promo with no track names.
