One of my favorite soundtracks of all time, done by one man on a Prophet V. The story of this version is unique, after the old version was available for years with only 8 tracks from this film, and several others from other films, masters were discovered in one of the film's producer's attic, leading to a complete remaster, and a huge addition to the segues included. Waxwork released a killer vinyl version in several colored variants, each one representing a segment of the film. Anyway, Mondo is repressing it soon, and they are also issuing a sweet Stephen King enamel pin. Waxwork also recently released Rick Wakeman's OST for Creepshow 2 on vinyl, with similar variants, but this is the superior disc. I've posted this before, but worthy of a listen, especially around Halloween:
Sorry if old news but I'm pretty excited about this... Doctor Sleep is a novel by Stephen King, a sequel to King's novel The Shining (1977), released in September 2013. King first mentioned the idea in November 2009. The author's official website confirmed the project on September 26, 2011. The audiobookedition of Stephen King's 2012 novel The Dark Tower: The Wind Through the Keyhole, released on April 24, 2012, contains the novel's prologue read by the author. The e-book publication of "In the Tall Grass", a novella written by King and his son Joe Hill, contains the text of this excerpt. Describing the novel on his official site, King stated that it is "a return to balls-to-the-wall, keep-the-lights-on horror". With Doctor Sleep, Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his previous novels, The Shining. The novel features the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the twelve-year-old girl, Abra Stone, who possesses an even greater psychic ability ("shining") than Danny did as a child. Following the events of The Shining, Danny remains psychologically traumatized; Wendy, his mother, is still in pain from her recovered injuries. Angry ghosts from The Overlook Hotel eventually find Danny, including the woman from Room 217. Chef Halloran eventually teaches Danny how to imprison the ghosts in lock boxes inside his mind. The adult Dan reprises his father's legacy of anger and alcoholism. Dan drifts for decades, but eventually finds AA and gives up drinking. He settles in a New Hampshire town and works in a nursing home, where his remnant mental abilities provide comfort to the dying. With the aid of a cat that can foresee the future, Dan became "Doctor Sleep." Dan establishes a telepathic bond with Abra. She contacts him in desperation when she receives clairvoyant knowledge of the ritual murder of the "Baseball Boy," another child who possesses "the shining." We learn that the child was sacrificed by a group called "The True Knot." Led by Rose the Hat, this group of almost immortal travelers criss-cross the country, periodically feeding on the psychic energy (which they call "steam") of children with the gift of "the shining." They discover Abra's existence and begin closing in on her. Dan and others engage in a struggle to save Abra from The True Knot. An epic war between good and evil ensues.
