Kritzerland has announced a limited release of a newly unearthed complete soundtrack to Brian De Palma's Carrie, which was scored by Pino Donaggio. The soundtrack includes all of Donaggio's cues as used in the film, as well as the two songs he wrote and recorded for the prom sequence. The other pop songs used in the film (two songs heard on the radio while Billy and Chris are in Billy's car, and another song played by the band at the prom) were unavailable to Kritzerland. The label's web site explains the discovery of the original material, and the history of the original soundtrack's release:

United Artists released the soundtrack album on LP. It was an odd presentation in that almost all of the music was from the film’s second half, save for the main title sequence (which was repeated verbatim at the end of the album). The album ran thirty-five minutes. That LP was released twice on CD – first by Ryko (with dialogue snippets included to pad out the running time), and then by Varese Sarabande (with the dialogue snippets gone). Ryko used the album master, and the Varese was a clone of the Ryko release (the pop songs used in the film were not available to them or to us).

For this very special release, we are pleased to say that our detective work paid off in spades – we found 13 reels of the original session masters and they included the entire score, about twenty-five minutes of never-before-released score cues. Since both film and score are iconic, it was the greatest kind of discovery we could have made.

So, it is with great pleasure that we offer for the first time the complete score to Carrie in film order. We also found two instrumentals of the songs, which we’ve included as bonus tracks. Additionally, on CD 2 we offer the original album, newly remastered for this release.

This release is limited to 1200 copies only. The price of this special 2 CD set is our usual one CD price – $19.98, plus shipping. Additionally, we are offering a special deal with the purchase of this release. Go to the item page and click on the link to find out about it.

CD will ship the third week of December – however, preorders placed directly through Kritzerland usually ship one to five weeks earlier (we’ve been averaging four weeks early).

It's sold out now.  I'm actually surprised it took this long; I was thinking it might sell out in the first day.  I made sure to order two copies to keep one sealed for an emergency (or if I could get a lot of money for it in the future, hehe).

If you'd like to sell it sooner, Ryan, let me know-- I'd like to buy it. I was waiting until Friday, which was apparently a big mistake on my part. I snoozed and I losed.

You may still be able to get a copy from Intrada's web site (store.intrada.com, see the "Coming Soon" section). I don't know if Kritzerland have actually set aside a contingent for Intrada but it might be worth a shot. I've found them to be a relaible outfit in the past.

Thanks, Christian-- I'll give that a try!

I think I'm going to hang on to my second copy for a while before (if) I decide to sell it.  But I hope you can get a copy, Geoff.  It says "out of stock" on the Intrada site but it's not technically been released yet so maybe there is still hope that they'll get some in.

That's cool, Ryan-- if I don't get it now, maybe there will be a second run or something.

that's normal. Intrada's website always says "out of stock" for not yet released titles (and for items that are out of stock, obviously). Good luck getting a copy, Geoff. And I hope mine from Kritzerland ships soon. :)

You're right, Christian-- each upcoming item says "Out Of Stock," apparently so customers don't think the item will ship right away. I ordered one from them, and they took my money and all, so we'll see. Thanks for the tip!
