COVER ART BY GARY PULLIN, VINYL WEEKEND EXCLUSIVE AT BARNES & NOBLE
Patrick Doyle's score for Brian De Palma's Carlito's Way is being released on vinyl for the first time ever, as a Barnes & Noble exclusive from Varèse Sarabande Records. Hitting stores this Friday (July 12th), as part of B&N's "Vinyl Weekend," the package features new cover art by illustrator “Ghoulish” Gary Pullin. According to The Vinyl Factory's Jedd Wise, Pullin is "largely recognised for his work within the horror genre."
The Barnes & Noble page for the vinyl soundtrack features a quote from Doyle:
“I am extremely fortunate and proud to have composed the score for Carlito’s Way for the extraordinary auteur, Brian de Palma. I recognised the moment I first saw the film that it was a masterpiece and time has indeed confirmed this. Every new generation discovers Carlito’s Way and the enthusiasm and appreciation over the years for the film, for the score and for the work of all the other departments has been extremely flattering. This film has become a classic and to have my score be part of it is a tremendous honour. Thank you Brian once again.” Patrick Doyle, composer.
