Still one of the most highly regarded horror films of all time, F.W. Murnau’s unauthorised adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Nosferatu (1922), is an Expressionist masterpiece of the silent era. Much of the original score by Hans Erdmann (meant to be played live by an orchestra) was lost, leading Nosferatu to inspire several subsequent soundtracks, the best known of which is by Hammer Horror composer James Bernard, written for the Tanis Film video reissue of the film in 1997. The world premiere of the score was performed by Nic Raine and the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra at the London Film Festival the same year and now, almost twenty years later, the score is being pressed on vinyl for the first time.

Double 180g Vinyl, expanded edition LP features original dialogue on disc 2. Gatefold sleeve. Limited to 1500 copies. Originally released on CD in 2000, the expanded soundtrack edition of John Carpenter’s classic 1981 thriller included over 20 minutes of previously unreleased music plus music from scenes deleted from the final print. The masters were re-mixed from the original multi-track session tapes by long-time Carpenter associate Alan Howarth. This is the first time the expanded edition has appeared on vinyl in its complete form, including original dialogue highlights.
John Carpenter’s 1980 follow-up film to his smash hit Halloween featured ghost sailors terrorizing a Californian coastal community as a dense fog descends on their homes. The multi-talented filmmaker’s atmospheric synthesiser score has long been a soundtrack favourite and this double album features a 20 track LP of the entire score, drawn from the original tapes, remastered by long-time Carpenter collaborator Alan Howarth on the A/B sides and the original album which featured 20 minutes of newly released music on the C/D sides. “I went back to Sound Arts Studio in central Los Angeles and quickly began composing and recording new tracks. Dan Wyman, my creative consultant on Assault On Precinct 13 and Halloween was at my side programming the synthesizers, keeping a critical eye on my multi-tracked performances and maintaining quality control over the long hours of recording and mixing. And, out of all this frenzy, re-working and re-structuring, I produced what I consider to be one of my best scores” – John Carpenter.

The 2003 Christmas comedy Elf has become a staple of the festive season and what better to find wrapped up under the tree with your name on it than a copy of the soundtrack? It's packed full of seasonal cheer: Leon Redbone's gravelly baritone voice is instantly recognisable on ''Christmas Island'' and ''Winter Wonderland'', and his duet with Elf star Zooey Deschanel on the standard ''Baby Its Cold Outside'' positively glows with Yuletide warmth. Former Stray Cat star Brian Setzer created his own big band guitar-led sound and ''Nutcracker Suite'' captures it perfectly, while Ella Fitzgerald performs quite simply one of the best interpretations ever of the perennial song, ''Sleigh Ride''. ''Growing up in New York, I've always viewed Christmas as a holiday for everyone. Though rooted in religion, it has grown into a holiday that has come to represent the coming together of all mankind. It represents the best of people. I tried to capture that spirit in the songs of this album. Hopefully it will put a smile on your face'' - Jon Favreau, director of Elf
