'Day of the Dead' soundtrack re-issued on vinyl

According to Bloody Disgusting, Waxwork Records will be reissuing the original score to George A. Romero's 1985 classic, Day of the Dead. John Harrison's (Creepshow, Tales From The Darkside: The Movie) film score was released on vinyl at the same time of the film, but was out-of-print for almost 30 years. With the exception of the 2002 Numenorean Music reissue, which was an extremely limited release, there has been no way to own the original soundtrack until now.

Waxwork took to Twitter on June 20 to share the news of the re-issue and some photos of the original master tapes (which they are using to bring the long dead soundtrack back to life).

The company said they would be providing over 40 cues, which means over an hour of uneasy listening. Romero himself will also be adding to the liner notes. A release date for the Day of the Dead vinyl hasn't been released yet, but you can score their reissue of Re-Animator on July 31.
