Scores for TERMINAL STATION, THE BLACK ORCHID and THE BEYOND getting reissued
Nothing is quite as rewarding as hearing about the reissuing of some great classic film scores.
Three classics will be seeing their soundtracks hit store shelves once again later this year, the first of which is coming thanks to the Mondo label. The company will be bringing Fabio Frizzi’s score for Lucio Fulci’s THE BEYOND to vinyl on May 22. Only 1,500 copies will be made, with 500 being made of clear, turquoise wax, so this is one you’ll want to keep an eye out for.
Finally, Disques Cinemusique will be bringing a set of scores from Alessandro Cicognini, in the form of TERMINAL STATION and THE BLACK ORCHID. Helmed by Vittorio De Sica and Martin Ritt, respectively, the pair will arrive on CD on April 15, with a booklet in toe.
Now, while I’ve only seen TERMINAL STATION (on a glorious Criterion DVD), I can say that the score is one of my favorites, and I'm excited about hearing the other two reissues as well. I love listening to classic scores, as they are both thrilling and also sonically unlike anything we get today, so hopefully these three will be making my car rides to work a little more interesting.
