The 1973 thriller starring Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee and Britt Ekland about pagan worshipers on a remote Scottish island has been seen only in truncated versions. Thanks to a long search conducted via Facebook, "Wicker Man" worldwide rights holder Studiocanal has restored the complete U.S. version, which original director Hardy describes as "the final cut."
Music On Vinyl presents The Wicker Man on 180 gram audiophile vinyl. ALL the songs from the cult classic 1973 soundtrack are included. This release has been prepared from original master tapes with a clarity and presence that gives the late Paul Giovanni's haunting music the showcase it has so long deserved.
This is definitely the stuff that myths are made of! Containing exclusive material from the later, longer version of the film, including the song "Gently Johnny". Paul Giovanni, together with Magnet, has created a mysterious and sinister world that has a life of its own 30 years after the film's release. Flutes, lyres, harmonicas, and guitars mixed in with original and traditional material makes each song totally different, summing up the atmosphere of the movie brilliantly!
Presented in a lavish gatefold sleeve with extensive notes and stills from the movie, this is a luxurious package that pays homage to what is without doubt one of the most innovative and provocative British cult horror films ever produced. The Wicker Man is a stunning soundtrack which all you movie buffs and traditional British folk music fans are advised to snap up for your collection!
"The music to The Wicker Man is quite extraordinary, it is probably the best music I've ever heard in a film." - Christopher Lee
