Just like VHS tapes, the past couple years have seen a big time resurgence in vinyl records, and companies like Mondo and Death Waltz Recording Company have been working hard to give us horror fans incredible releases to stick the ole needle on. One of the newest companies on the scene is the Belgium-based One Way Static Records, which was just launched this year and has already made a huge impact with a release of David Hess' Last House on the Left soundtrack - made available on not just vinyl but also CD and even cassette. As of yesterday, the company made their second release available for pre-order, and they've once again found vinyl inspiration in the early works of Wes Craven.
Don Peake's motion picture soundtrack for 1977's original Hills Have Eyes is One Way Static Records' second offering to their waiting audience of fans, and just like their Last House release it will also be available in a few different ways. A standard Black Vinyl Edition is limited to 1,400 copies and can be purchased for approximately $27, while the Limited Vinyl Edition will cost you about $35, limited numbers of the soundtrack being pressed on amber/glow in the dark vinyl as well as clear/solid amber 'splatter vinyl.' Both releases include liner notes from Dee Wallace, Michael Berryman and composer Don Peake, among other members of the cast and crew.
A mere 300 copies of the soundtrack on cassette are also available, which are selling for approximately $10. If the Last House release was any indication, those won't last long, so be sure to snatch one up while you can.
Head over to One Way Static Records to learn more, listen to samples and place your pre-orders. Orders will begin shipping out January 14th of next year!
