Art, Release Details: John Harrison’s “CREEPSHOW” Vinyl from Waxwork


Waxwork Records, who’ve done stellar work with reissues of ROSEMARY’S BABY, DAY OF THE DEAD and RE-ANIMATOR have unveiled the full package behind their definitive release of John Harrison’s CREEPSHOW score. The soundtrack of George Romero and Stephen King’s iconic ode to horror comics past will boast art by “Ghoulish” Gary Pullin, five variants so that you may celebrate whichever segment of the film is your favorite and much more.

Since I truly admire vinyl, but can speak very little about it, find all of the details, as well as images of the package, below. You can pre-order CREEPSHOW at Waxwork Records beginning Tuesday, April 1.

WAXWORK RECORDS is thrilled to announce their next LP release to the 1982 horror anthology classic, CREEPSHOW. The film was directed by George A. Romero and written by Stephen King. The score was composed and performed by John Harrison (DAY OF THE DEAD, TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE).

This definitive release of the film score has never before been released. The original master tapes of the CREEPSHOW film score were lost for over 30 years, but with the efforts of composer John Harrison and Waxwork Records, the tapes were located in the attic of Jeree Recording Studios in New Brighton, PA. The tapes remained in remarkable shape over the years and were re-mixed and re-mastered for vinyl. The CREEPSHOW score has never sounded this good.

Pre-orders begin Tuesday, April 1st via waxworkrecords.com LP package details include:

• Heavyweight casebound tip-on gatefold jacket with a satin coating

• Director essay from George A. Romero

• Composer essay from John Harrison

• A built-in booklet featuring production stills, artwork, and liner notes

• A satin coated 12×12 art print of The Creeper

• Full album packaging artwork by Ghoulish Gary Pullin
