Entitled LP to CD, the series will feature soundtrack albums culled from Varèse Sarabande’s
vinyl vault that have never been released on CD to date and only available to subscribers.
The first title in the series will be Charles Bernstein’s APRIL FOOL’S DAY, a long out of
print and in-demand soundtrack album from the iconic and prolific film composer.
The LP to CD subscription series consists of 12 previous unreleased soundtracks
from Varèse Sarabande’s archives, with subsequent titles to be announced each month.
Membership to the LP to CD series costs $10 per month, (plus shipping).
Each album in the LP to CD series is chosen for its quality and archival value.
The individual CDs are authentically packaged in mini-LP replica jackets.
Subscribers who pre-order for the year membership, (billed monthly),
will receive a limited edition retro-styled mini vinyl record carrying case
with their APRIL FOOL’S DAY shipment to be filled with each successive album during
the 12 month subscription run. The pre-order period runs from May 15 – June 14, 2015.
After June 14, fans can join the subscription series on a month-to-month basis.
“Varèse Sarabande has a rich catalog of soundtracks which have never been released
on CD,” said Darren Blumenthal, CEO. “As we have delved deeper into our vaults, we have
located many fan favorites that had previously only been released on vinyl.
We believe this subscription series will fulfill the requests of longstanding fans
who commit to the series while also introducing a new generation of fans
to some of these previously hard-to-find gems.”
The first soundtrack to be released in the LP to CD series is APRIL FOOL’s DAY,
composed by Charles Bernstein. A
April Fool's Day just happens to be the birthday of rich college student Buffy Deborah Foreman,
so she invites a group of friends from Vassar over to her family's island getaway to spend
the weekend partying. Though some practical-joke shenanigans on the ferry over
from the mainland lead to unexpected bloodshed and put a damper on the festivities,
Buffy unleashes a flood of more benign pranks on her guests, setting a tone of giddy abandon.
With plenty of randy guys and gals on hand and no parental supervision, it isn't long before
drunken escapades ensue. As the weekend progresses, however, guests begin to disappear
mysteriously, and before long Buffy and friends find themselves huddling in terror in their remote getaway.
The next ferry isn't due until Monday, and the partygoers aren't sure whether any of them will
make it that long. The mostly Canadian cast of APRIL FOOL'S DAY includes Leah King Pinsent,
daughter of actor/director Gordon Pinsent, and Amy Steel, a veteran of the
second and fourth Friday the 13th installments.
