Hans Zimmer’s original True Romance score unearthed and issued on vinyl LP

Two months after Wargod/Real Gone Music’s soundtrack reissue, US label Enjoy The Ride Records appeared to have scored a real coup here, by issuing Hans Zimmer‘s original score to Tony Scott’s True Romance on vinyl LP – the first time it has been issued on any format.

Recorded on a budget of nine musicians (after being told the plans for a full orchestra had to be scrapped due to the director going over budget) only three cues from the score made it to the official soundtrack album, which was largely made up of contemporary songs.

The True Romance Original Motion Picture Score features 17 cues (including alternate versions of the You’re So Cool main title) and a bonus seven-inch single which includes the three cues already issued (although You’re So Cool and Stars at Dawn are listed as ‘extended single’ versions).

This vinyl edition comes packaged in a heavyweight gatefold jacket with spot varnishing and embossing. You also get a digital download card. Direct from Enjoy The Ride’s website are two different coloured/patterned vinyl options, but for Amazon/JPC orders it may be a case of ‘luck of the draw’ what you end up with. All the bonus seven-inch singles come on ‘cadillac’ purple vinyl.

The True Romance Original Motion Picture Score on vinyl LP is released on 1 September 2017

    The Cocaine Explosion version (only 100 made) sold out within about 2 hours of going on sale in July. If you’re quick enough there’s a very small quantity of the Leopard Print ones left on the Enjoy the Records Web Site, these also include the bonus purple 7″

    I don’t believe either of these 2 variants listed above are been sold on any other site, so I’m unsure of what version you would get at Amazon or JPC (could be a regular black, or a new variant), so at the moment it’s a bit of a pot luck, maybe more details will be revealed soon.

    JPC doesn’t mention the bonus 7″, or any tracks for that matter but the tracklisting on the Amazon post suggests that the 7″ will be included despite also not mentioning it.

    There is one more variant that I’m aware of that is still in stock as well, and that’s on the Amercian Website Newbury Comics which also has the 2 colour Gold/Purple edition with bonus 7″

    The retail colour variant is I believe “Gunmetal Grey” or at least this is the version up on sale at Resident Records in Brighton. The versions on the Enjoy The Ride site are their web exclusives. I bought the white splatter one myself a while back and am very happy with it.

    Anyone else miss the times when vinyl used to be black?
