Description
"The Hallucinatory Soundtrack to the Ultimate "Midnight Movie" That Broke New Ground with Its Psychedelic and Grotesque Imagery mastered from the original analog tapes. Includes 4-Page Booklet Boasting Surreal Stills from the Film!"

Championed by everybody from John Lennon to Peter Gabriel to Marilyn Manson, director Alejandro Jodorowsky s bizarre, blood-soaked blend of spaghetti Western, druggy surrealism, Christian allegory, Zen Buddhist themes and avant-garde sensibilities gave rise to the entire Midnight Movie counterculture phenomenon of the early 70s and forever changed the way adventurous audiences viewed film. Reissued for the first time legitimately since it's initial release on Apple Records in 1971, this 18 track record fully captures Jodorowsky's singular sonic vision. Reissue includes a gatefold sleeve, four page booklet with images from the film and 180 gram vinyl. Mastered by Joe Yannece at Classic Sound. No soundtrack, before or since, has embraced so many styles in its pursuit of spiritual and artistic goals. Atonal, Tibetan Buddhist thighbone trumpets clash with beautiful, even sentimental, chamber orchestra pieces alongside pan flute rhapsodies, brass bands and parlor jazz; that Jodorowsky himself composed the score after, no doubt, intently studying the work of Morricone is almost as impressive an artistic achievement as the film itself.
