I’m sure by now you are all aware of the extraordinary Jean Rollin soundtrack program that has begun over at Finders Keepers Records. The inaugural release, a 5 track vinyl E.P. featuring Pierra Raph’s mega-rare score from Jeunes Filles Impudiques, is already out and it is a real winner. The five tracks are exciting, adventurous and make for an extremely cool listen, and Finders Keepers presentation is extremely well done. This sizzling little E.P. is only available in a very limited run of just 500 copies and I just happen to have an extra one (thanks to the kind folks at Finders Keepers) that I am looking to give away here.
I had wanted to be a little more creative with this giveaway, than just offering a typical run of trivia questions or something along those lines, so here is what I came up with. First off, consider this just a free sip and agree to support Finders Keepers upcoming Rollin releases. This is a really important chapter for the Jean Rollin legacy so hardcore fans need to snag these up and show some support to Finders Keepers.
Now…onto the contest. I have always wanted Fascination to be more interactive than it has been, so I would like to hear about your love affair with the films of Jean Rollin. Please submit a short (or long) essay to me via email (found under “About Me”) about how you discovered Rollin, and why you value his films, by the end of August. The piece that I find the most interesting, moving and genuine will get posted here and you will get the free E.P.
I realize this is a bit unfair perhaps as my opinion is of course subjective, but I promise that the majority of submissions will be posted and links will be supplied back to your sites. I am mainly looking at this as an exercise to hear other fan’s experiences with Rollin, but sadly I only have one E.P. to give away.
So, once again…submit an original piece detailing your introduction to, and love for the cinema of Jean Rollin, by the end of August for a chance to win Finders Keepers Jeunes Filles Impudiques vinyl E.P.. I will announce the winner at the beginning of September with their post, and will follow-that up with the other non-E.P. winning entries. Length is up to the writer and I will will credit you however you wish to be credited.
Any questions can be emailed to me or left in the comments section. Thanks, good luck and VIVA JEAN ROLLIN!
