The Wicker Man's famous folk soundtrack has only increased in popularity since the release of the film in 1973. Composer Paul Giovanni had always intended to release the soundtrack on vinyl as an album of songs, but this never happened due to the film's troubled past, and consequently the existing soundtrack includes extra incidental music. Originally released in 2013 for the 40th anniversary of the cult 70's horror film, only 500 copies of The Wicker Man: 40th Anniversary Edition were pressed on vinyl which have become highly sought after. The 40th Anniversary Edition has a different track listing to the preceding OST double album, selecting only the songs to make a single LP. Silva Screen commissioned artist Richey Beckett to come up with artwork for a poster and sleeve and the original 2013 pressing contained a certificate from the artist. This vinyl repress contrasts beautifully with the artwork, which is printed on reverse board. It does not contain the certificate but does have the stunning original printed inner sleeve.
