THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH "Soundtrack" [12" 2-LP +2-CD]
2016 - Rock from United Kingdom
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Nicolas Roeg's enigmatic, David Bowie film, comes the release of the original soundtrack. Previously unavailable in any form until now, the soundtrack contains seminal pieces by Stomu Yamash'ta and John Phillips, who composed specifically for the film. The film's score has always been highly celebrated and long sought after by fans but until now unavailable as a body of work: it can now finally be acknowledged in its own right. Little is known, and much has been asked, as to why the soundtrack was never originally released. Due to lost tapes recently being uncovered it is now possible to present the original recordings, remastered on 2CD, 2LP gatefold 180GM vinyl and in this sumptuous dual format Deluxe Box featuring the CDs, the LPs, poster and a 48-page hardback book with rare photos, and a new essay about from respected music critic and biographer Paolo Hewitt.
