From “Mondo” comes the original score for the classic film “Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Kahn” composed by James Horner. This deluxe re-issue is pressed on 180 Gram 2XLP Mutara Nebula colored Vinyl, features breathtaking original artwork by Matt Taylor, exclusive liner notes by Devin Faraci, and has been remastered for Vinyl by James Plotkin.
The score for the first Star Trek film, “Star Trek: The Motion Picture”, was composed by Jerry Goldsmith. So needless to say, Horner had some big shoes to fill when taking on it’s sequel. Luckily for us, he wholeheartedly lived up to the challenge. I have always been a huge fan of the late great James Horner. You’ve probably heard his music from James Cameron’s “Aliens” in a bunch of movie trailers, or his unforgettable themes from the box office juggernaut “Titanic”. But my personal favorite, hands down, has to be his score for the Don Bluth animated film “The Land Before Time”. Maybe I saw it at JUST the right moment when I was a kid, but that music really knows EXACTLY how to tug on your heart strings. “Wrath of Kahn” is no different. Having one of the most heart breaking scenes in Star Trek history, this Vinyl release is a must have for any self respecting Trekkie or Trekker.
This deluxe vinyl re-issue is available at mondotees.com on January 13th.
