Prom Night (1980) Soundtrack Details From MVD Entertainment
Perseverance Records presents the long awaited official release of the 1980 cult classic Prom Night Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Perseverance worked closely with Carl Zittrer and Paul Zaza to locate and unearth the original masters and all music recorded for the film including unreleased disco songs and score not used in the final production, never heard before anywhere.
This marks the first official and complete CD release of the Prom Night soundtrack. While the songs themselves have made appearances on a notorious Japanese LP and eventual bootleg recordings sourced from it, there was no official release of the songs – partially because the movie was made in the waning days of the disco fever.
This soundtrack features four different aspects of the music. First it opens with a re-creation of the score as it appears in the film – or as close to it as it could be assembled from the separate elements. Next is the score that wasn’t used in the picture. Then come the disco songs in approximate order – but omitting the Blue Bazaar songs that were not featured in the movie and were used only as filler for the bootleg Japanese LP. The last portion of the album is dedicated to the songs that don’t appear in the picture yet are as intrinsic to the sound of Prom Night as the songs that made it.
This release contains six never before heard disco songs and a ton of other unreleased/unused music. Just when you thought you’d heard it all! In addition, the release features original cover art by Max Spragovsky. Awesome!
Check out this killer track listing!
Talk about a must own for Prom Night fans. Wow! This soundtrack release has been a long time coming. I’m frankly shocked this has never been on CD before. That’s crazy!
