Record Label: Real Gone Music
Pillow Feather White with Blood Red Splatter Vinyl, Limited to 2000 Copies.
Though it was directed by Tony Scott, the 1993 film True Romance displayed all the signature themes and images of its writer, Quentin Tarantino, from its grisly violence to its B-movie homages to its gleeful amorality. And the same could be said of the soundtrack; alongside composer Hans Zimmer’s riff on Carl Orff (which itself was an homage to another violent road movie, Badlands), True Romance offered a playlist that smacked of Tarantino in its embrace of rockabilly (Charlie Sexton, Chris Isaak), grunge (Soundgarden), honky-tonk (Shelby Lynne), and romantic machismo (Robert Palmer’s take on [Love Is] The Tender Trap).Vinyl would seem a natural for such a “warped” soundtrack; yet, outside of a very limited South Korean edition of dubious origin, the soundtrack to True Romance has never made it to LP.
So how does a reissue label rectify this grievous oversight? With a bang! Real Gone Music and Wargod are proud to announce the firstever legitimate release of the True Romance soundtrack on vinyl, housed inside a gatefold album jacket featuring commissioned, custom artwork by Rafał Wechterowicz. This artwork is exclusive to this album’s initial manufacturing run and will never be reprinted. What’s more, our release of True Romance comes in pillow feather white with blood red splatter vinyl limited to 2000 copies! Consider this our own homage to one of the greatest cult classic films of all time…don’t miss out on this limited edition.
