For all of us record heads and vinyl enthusiast alike, the third Saturday of April is a special time of the year. It is like Christmas, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving and Fourth of July all rolled into one but even better because it is Record Store Day. It’s not only an exciting time because labels release limited edition vinyl and because your favorite record store throws a party, but also it’s the one day out of the year that we can unite and truly all nerd out together in name of vinyl! Well, starting this year there will be yet another reason to drag yourself out of bed at the buttcrack of dawn to stand in long lines.
This September, the 7th, marks the first annual Cassette Store Day. Much like RSD, cassette stores world wide will partake in CSD events and sell the latest cassette releases. In addition, many labels are getting ready to release cassettes exclusively for CSD. One cassette in particular that we are looking forward to is David Hess – The Last House On The Left (Original 1972 Motion Picture Soundtrack) via One Way Static.
David Hess composed the soundtrack for Last House on the Left in collaboration with Steve Chapin (Let Time Go Lightly). The soundtrack to Last House On The Left is a brilliantly unique and diverse mixture of farcical comedy, poignant, reflective folk music and instrumental experimentalism. Hess constructed a wonderful counterbalancing entity, which serves only to accentuate the impact of the movie.
The cassette is part of a limited edition run of 400 copies and will include the full original 1972 motion picture score and four extra bonus tracks.
