Before The Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon there was Michael Mann’s Manhunter, the very first adaptation of Thomas Harris’ Hannibal novels that introduced movie-goers to both the cannibalistic killer and the “Red Dragon,” Francis Dolarhyde. For the first time, the complete soundtrack to Manhunter is now available today, courtesy of Waxwork Records!
The double-vinyl release is available in two forms: Red Dragon and Captiva Blue.
Waxwork’s new vinyl release of Manhunter includes the complete original soundtrack including the famous closing track In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by Iron Butterfly. Bonus tracks include Jogger’s Stakeout by The Reds. For the very first time, the tracks Freeze by Klaus Schulze and Seiun / Hikari No Sonoby Kitaro make their appearance on a Manhunter album release. These two thematic, synth driven cues are featured prominently in the film, however have never been released on vinyl in conjunction with Manhunter until now.
All tracks have been re-mastered for vinyl.
The release features deluxe packaging, die-cut gatefold jackets, shattered mirror board inner sleeves, 180 gram colored vinyl, and all new artwork by Midnight Maurader.
