The Sights And Sounds Of ‘The Bride Of Frankenstein’ Come From Waxwork Records

Here comes the bride–of Frankenstein, that is–just in time to celebrate the 85th anniversary of the Universal Pictures horror classic with two releases fans are sure to love.

Waxwork Records is dropping both the soundtrack of the iconic 1935 film and the latest in its ongoing series of Spinatures that bears the likeness of Elsa Lanchester’s most famous cinematic role, as reported by consequenceofsound.net.

Photos of the soundtrack vinyl packaging and artwork and the Bride Spinature–which can be ordered from Waxwork’s official site–can be seen on this page.

The film’s entire score–from composer Franz Waxman–has been put on vinyl for the first time, sourced from the original acetates and masters from the Waxman estate and Universal.

This remastering features prestige packing containing old-style tip-on gatefold jackets, an informational booklet (complete with liner notes from restoration engineer Mike Matessino), original scoring session photos and new artwork from Phantom City Creative.

This memorable soundtrack–available for pre-order for $27 plus shipping–is expected to be sent out sometime in January 2021.

The other treat from Waxwork Records will fit nicely on top of that classic vinyl. The second Universal Monsters Spinature Mini-Bust–an accurate rendering of the Bride ready to join the company’s previously released Frankenstein Spinature–is now available. These Spinatures are designed to be placed on top of your spinning records or displayed as a collective bust on your shelf of choice.

The four-inch-tall bust of the Bride of Frankenstein–which can be pre-ordered now for $24 for December shipping–comes packaged in a double-window collector’s box with new artwork from Robert Sammelin.

Waxwork reportedly plans future additions to its line of Spinatures–including the Wolfman, Dracula, the Mummy, the Phantom of the Opera, the Invisible Man and the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
