In a time when 1980’s pop culture is making a total resurgence, it makes sense that a film score from that era would be released on vinyl now. Fittingly on the weekend of the title’s sake, news came out that Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan is getting the vinyl treatment for the first time from Waxwork Records.
According to the company’s web site, Waxwork Records sourced the complete score by Fred Mollin from the original 1989 master tapes. For the release they were taken from the vaults at Paramount Pictures then restored and re-mastered for vinyl.
The two-disc album package features 180 gram colored vinyl, die-cut tip-on gatefold jackets with matte satin coating, printed inner sleeves and new artwork by Anthony Petrie which can be seen below:
Although Waxwork is currently sold out through their site, pre-orders are ongoing.
