FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE ULTIMATE COMPILATION!
Posted 25 October 2011 - 09:08 PM
Friday the 13th: The Ultimate Compilation features music from the Friday the 13th films compiled by Harry Manfredini and Sean Cunningham. Says Manfredini: "I am so excited about the new CD available for download through Lionsgate Records and Fearnet.com. I have put together some of the most requested excerpts from the first six of the Friday the 13th scores. The collection includes the ‘Diner Song' which is probably the most requested of all! Thanks for your support. Enjoy!"

Oh, and for those who aren't sure, if you like Harry's music, then it's some of the best ten bucks you'll ever spend.

Mark your calendars for January 13, 2012 (and is that a Friday? Well, is the pope Catholic?), because La-La Land Records is releasing a six-disc box-set featuring Harry's scores for the first six Friday The 13th films. Just to clarify, Fred Mollin scored Parts 7 and 8 (although the latter did include some existing cues by Harry, mostly from Parts 2 and 6); Harry returned for Parts 9 and 10, but those scores are already available on CD.
Harry's scores for Fridays 1-6 remain an elusive treat. Although a great vinyl record album soundrack featuring cues from Parts 1-3 was issued in 1982 on Grammavision Records, it left out a lot of great music, and for a long time was the only Friday music available commercially.
I updated the Pit mainpage for further details about the new box set, so check out http://www.pitofhorror.com for more info and links.
