The Wicker Man: Original Soundtrack Recording - Giovanni - Magnet on Limited Edition 180g LP
For many years the original soundtrack for the 1973 British cult horror film The Wicker Man was a holy grail among soundtrack aficionados and one of the most sought after of all time. It has now been prepared from recently discovered master tapes with a clarity and presence that gives the late Paul Giovanni's haunting music the showcase it has so long deserved!
Giovanni, together with Magnet, has created a mysterious and sinister world that has a life of its own nearly 40 years after the film's release. Flutes, lyres, harmonicas, and guitars, mixed in with original and traditional material makes each song totally different, summing up the atmosphere of the movie brilliantly! The Wicker Man is a stunning soundtrack which all you movie buffs and traditional British folk music fans are advised to snap up for your collection!
Features exclusive material from the later, longer version of the film, including the song "Gently Johnny," which was not available on early LP issues. Limited edition 180g vinyl packaged in a lavish gatefold sleeve with extensive notes and stills from the film.
