The New Finders Keepers/B-Music Jean Rollin Titles are Now Available to Order


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!

Fantastic news, and the 'Possession' tape is unexpected icing on the cake.

Just pre-ordered the whole lot, which is more money than I should be spending on such things, but hey.

I'm still so happy Finders Keepers are doing these releases - one of those real "it would be so cool if somebody released all this stuff, but they probably never will.." wish-list things that they're actually making a reality.

Jeremy - you're behind the times, man, what's the deal !? lol. I came here to comment about the new kino announcement and was shocked to see there's been no post yet.

Maybe you're still in shock -- I know I was blown away. I mean, yeah they had said there was more to come, but I never expected we'd get three more films in a matter of months. I was hoping we'd get Living Dead Girl this time around, but I'm sure not going to complain when they're coming out this quickly.

Any word on an English-friendly release of Mask of the Medusa? It pains me that I still haven't gotten to see that one...

My B-music CD arrived today. It would be a terrible blunder to not recognize this as the most crucial film music (or music music) release of the year. Even if it is only March. Now if I could only get a vinyl copy!

I got the vinyl editions of Fascination and Requiem. The Requiem disc is really disappointing - the tracks appear to have been ripped from the film's audio and contain all sound effects. If the original soundtrack materials have not survived I would have expected this to have been noted in Finders Keeper's ads. I have the DVD of Requiem and could have made this "soundtrack" myself.
