The Changeling - Original Music and Soundtrack 2XLP (Distro Title)
This product is currently sold out.
Death Waltz Recording Co. are proud to present the first official vinyl release of the soundtrack to Peter Medak’s THE CHANGELING.
Featuring the haunting music composed by Rick Wilkins, Ken Wannberg and Howard Blake as well as original artwork by Gary Pullin, the album is available in two variants: Mondo exclusive vinyl and eco vinyl.
One of the greatest ghost stories of all time, 1980’s THE CHANGELING finds George C. Scott tormented by the angry spirit of a dead boy as he mourns the traumatic death of his own wife and daughter.
Elegant, yet chilling, the score was created by composers Rick Wilkins and Ken Wannberg (the latter of whom was also John Williams' longtime music editor). Additionally, the soundtrack features the work of Howard Blake, who was brought on specifically to compose the pivotal Music Box Theme.
Performed by The National Philharmonic Orchestra of London, the result is one of the most enduring and classic in all of horror, with the tense sadness of the strings accompanied by piano, alternately wistful and diabolical, darting through the shadows of the haunted house.
Officially available for the first time on vinyl, THE CHANGELING Original Music and Soundtrack is presented as a double LP with original artwork by Gary Pullin.
Please note: This is a distributed title (which means another label pressed this release), so we do not have any extra jackets for this release in case of minor damage by the USPS in transit. To clarify, It will come packaged in a full-color jacket (as pictured) sealed with plastic wrap UNLESS requested in the comment section of your order to "open the album & place outside of the jacket prior to shipping."

Release days are hectic, especially the first few hours, so please give ample time for a response. We will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you!
