Fans of the classic film might be interested in the Get Carter soundtrack deluxe 3-CD reissue with book, which is out this month.
Of course, you might already have the soundtrack on CD or the vinyl reissue from a few years back. But this one offers up some added value courtesy of some extra music, both from the film and from the back catalogue of the man behind it, Roy Budd.
The soundtrack itself is actually a modern-era release, in terms of the UK at least. The ‘Get Carter’ theme was issued as a 7-inch on Pye Records, but the original soundtrack LP was only released in Japan on the Odeon label at the time.
Eventually, it got a release on the Cinephile label, but only in 1998, which is probably the vinyl copy you have.
The new and improved edition of Get Carter has three CDs of music from Roy Budd – the first two devoted to the film’s soundtrack and the third to the best of Roy Budd’s other scores.
Disc 1 is the original Japanese soundtrack, with the addition of ‘Hallucinations’ (which was on the soundtrack but not the LP). Disc 2 combines other incidental music from the film with single mixes and remixes and other rarities.
Disc 3 is other Roy Budd soundtrack highlights from the likes of Diamonds, Fear Is The Key, The Stone Killer and The Black Windmill.
All of that comes in a ‘deluxe’ hardback book format with a huge booklet featuring a new, 15,000 essay from film soundtrack writer Charlie Brigden and a foreword from Paul Fishman, as well as numerous images from the cult classic movie.
It’s available to order now ahead of the release date of 26th July 2019, with a price of £26.99.
