One of the very first film scores that hooked me was that of John Williams’ score for the 1979 version of Dracula, starring Frank Langella. It was also one of the first soundtrack LPs I bought back in the day, being every bummed that it just wasn’t that long of a score. But now all of that is going to change, thanks to Varèse Sarabande.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the film, they will be releasing a Deluxe Edition of this score that expands the original 36 minute album to double that, of 72 minutes! This will include cues not heard in the final cut of the picture as well. Plus, there is a 2nd disc that will have the original score, that has been newly re-mastered from a new source presentation. The 2-CD set will also come with a 36-page book and a 12-page booklet in a beautifully designed slipcase box.
The retail is $29.98, but there will only be 5000 copies, so if you are interested, I would head over to Varèse Sarabande’s site (just click HERE) now and order yours today. I know I did.
