Varèse Sarabande Announces John Carpenter’s VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED & Dave Grusin’s THE GOONIES on Vinyl for Record Store Day

Varèse Sarabande Records The label has also announced its Record Store Day Black Friday 2020 titles: VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2-LP set by John Carpenter & Dave Davies and the first-ever LP picture disc for THE GOONIES: Original Motion Picture Score by Dave Grusin. These special LP releases will be available on Black Friday, November 27, at participating Record Store Day retailers and are limited to 3,000 copies worldwide.

VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (2-LP Set): The 1995 remake of Village of the Damned comes from influential horror director John Carpenter (The Fog, Halloween), who also co-scored the soundtrack with his friend Dave Davies of the British band The Kinks. The Deluxe Edition LP presents the full score as heard in the film for the first time—a far more complete presentation than the 1995 original soundtrack, which was not only truncated, but made of an entirely separate mix that wasn’t featured in the film. The set does however include “Midwich Shuffle,” which was created specifically for the original soundtrack despite never actually appearing in the film. The album comes pressed on Orange Haze vinyl and includes all-new original art direction, classic film stills, and new liner notes by film music journalist Randall D. Larson.

In celebration of the 35th anniversary of THE GOONIES, the beloved soundtrack by Dave Grusin will be released on an LP picture disc for the first time ever. The special release features the album cover on side A and the infamous One-Eyed Willie on side B. The track listing to this abbreviated single-disc version of the original score was personally selected and assembled by Grusin himself.
