Haunting “Unsolved Mysteries” Soundtrack Getting 1st Ever Vinyl Release!

Published

on

The original “Unsolved Mysteries” theme song, composed by Michael Boyd and Gary Remal Malkin, is one of the downright creepiest tunes in the history of entertainment. Most horror movie scores cannot even compare to the show’s theme, which someone managed to perfectly encapsulate all the ominous goings-on that the series explored.

Just thinking about the theme, to this day, sends chills up my spine.

Today we’ve learned that Terror Vision is releasing the original broadcast soundtrack for the show, for the very first time, on vinyl. Now up for pre-order, the Single LP and Triple LP versions of the soundtrack both include remastered audio pulled from original tapes.

The company’s owner explains, “Immediately after inking the deal with John Cosgrove (Unsolved Mysteries creator), I was sent several hundred DAT tapes of all the music for the show. So from February until a few weeks ago I would spend several hours a day making sense of everything. The single LP version features my personal favorite songs from the ghost related segments of Unsolved Mysteries whereas the triple LP set contains EVERYTHING written for the ghost segments. This version is very very limited as it’s really just meant for diehard fans.”

Single LP Version ($27): 

This is the single LP version featuring 3 UM theme songs, 29 ghost related cues and the missing/wanted music. This set is curated by Ryan Graveface.
