Deluxe Limited Edition 'The Fog Over Antonio Bay' Colored Vinyl + Bonus 7" Vinyl!
13 Classic Themes On One Collection For The First Time!

John Carpenter is a legend. As the director and composer behind dozens of
classic movies, Carpenter has established a reputation as one of the greatest
filmmakers in the history of modern cinema, as well as one of its most
influential musicians. The minimal, synthesizer-driven themes to films like
Halloween, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 are as indelible as
their images, and their timelessness was evident as Carpenter performed them
live in a string of internationally sold-out concert dates in 2016. Anthology:
Movie Themes 1974-1998 collects 13 classic themes from Carpenter's illustrious
career together on one volume for the first time. Each theme has been newly
recorded with the same collaborators that Carpenter worked with on his hit Lost
Themes studio albums: his son, Cody Carpenter, and godson, Daniel Davies.
Anthology is a near-comprehensive survey of John Carpenter's greatest themes,
from his very first movie, the no-budget sci-fi film Dark Star, to 1998's
supernatural Western, Vampires. Those sit alongside the driving, Led
Zeppelin-influenced Assault on Precinct 13 theme, Halloween's iconic 5/4 piano
riff, and the eerie synth work of The Fog. Carpenter and his band also cover
Ennio Morricone's bleak, minimalist theme for The Thing.
We also get vital new recordings of the themes to '80s classics and fan
favorites Big Trouble in Little China, Escape From New York, Christine, and They
Live, along with the romantic Starman, which earned Jeff Bridges his first Oscar
nomination as a lead actor. The collection is rounded out by the menacing, heavy
themes to Prince of Darkness and In the Mouth of Madness, the latter a
Metallica-inspired riff originally played for the film by Kinks guitarist Dave
Davies, and now played by his son Daniel.
