This morning a whole slew of exciting Jean Rollin CD and Vinyl release went up for order, and pre-order, at both the UK Finders Keepers Records site, as well as the US B-Music page. I will have full looks (and some giveaways) coming up for the new releases very soon but for now I just wanted to supply some links and quick details on these great discs.
Over at Finders Keepers we have the new Requiem for a Vampire and Fascination soundtrack issues. Vinyl junkies can Pre-order the Limited Edition Die-Cut 10" records of both Requiem for a Vampire and Fascination now. I believe these beautiful vinyl copies should be shipping later in March. The CD version (which combines both of these incredible soundtracks) is already ready to ship. A handful of the limited Cassette version are still available as well.
The Finders Keepers site is also offering The B-Music of Jean Rollin compilation for sale as well for their UK customers.
Heading over to the B-Music site, US customers can also pre-order the vinyl versions of Requiem for a Vampire and Fascination as well as order the in-stock CD. Of course, The B-Music of Jean Rollin CD is available there as well.
Speaking of The B-Music of Jean Rollin release, I am thrilled to announce here that I have two pieces included in the lengthy liner notes of this great release. I supplied new notes on Le Viol du Vampire and La Vampire Nue and am really honored to share space with both Daniel Bird (who contributes two of the best pieces I have ever read on Rollin's works, focusing on Requiem and Fascination) and Andy Votel (who contributes an amazing interview with Acanthus member Daniel Buffet as well as a beautiful piece on Jean-Philippe Delamarre!). My full look at this incredible disc will be up soon and, again, I am just ecstatic to be a part of this release!
Soundclips and full-track listings are available at the links above. Be sure to get your orders in to show Finders Keepers and B-Music how much we appreciate their dedication to the soundtracks, films and legacy of Jean Rollin!
