True Romance Is One of the Great Action Flicks of the ‘90s and a Stone- Cold Cult Classic

Though Directed by Tony Scott, the Film Bore All the Earmarks of Its Writer, Quentin Tarantino, from Its Grisly Violence to Its B-Movie Homages to Its Gleeful Amorality

Tarantino’s Influence Carried Over to the Soundtrack, Which Careened from Rockabilly to Grunge to Honky- Tonk to Romantic Machismo

Features Such Artists as Charlie Sexton, Chris Isaak, Soundgarden, Shelby Lynne, and Robert Palmer

Composer Hans Zimmer Also Paid Homage to Another Violent Road Movie, Badlands, with His Carl Orff- Inspired Contribution

Though the Soundtrack Is a Perennial Favorite on CD, and Seems Tailor- Made for Vinyl Release, It Has Never Appeared on LP Outside of a South Korean Release of Dubious Origin

For Its First Legitimate Release on Vinyl, Real Gone Music Presents The True Romance Soundtrack Inside a Gatefold Album Jacket Featuring Commissioned, Custom Artwork by Rafał Wechterowicz.

This Artwork Is Exclusive to This Album’s Initial Manufacturing Run and Will Never Be Reprinted

Real Gone Music’s Release Comes in Pillow Feather White with Blood Red Splatter Vinyl

Limited to 2000 Copies 

AVAILABLE JULY 7, 2017 PRE-ORDER NOW!

   True Romance: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack  (Limited Pillow Feather White & Blood Red Splatter Vinyl Edition) (LP)

Though it was directed by Tony Scott, the 1993 film True Romance displayed all the signature themes and images of its writer, Quentin Tarantino, from its grisly violence to its B-movie homages to its gleeful amorality. And the same could be said of the soundtrack; alongside composer Hans Zimmer’s riff on Carl Orff (which itself was an homage to another violent road movie, Badlands), True Romance offered a playlist that smacked of Tarantino in its embrace of rockabilly (Charlie Sexton, Chris Isaak), grunge (Soundgarden), honky-tonk (Shelby Lynne), and romantic machismo (Robert Palmer’s take on [Love Is] The Tender Trap).Vinyl would seem a natural for such a “warped” soundtrack; yet, outside of a very limited South Korean edition of dubious origin, the soundtrack to True Romance has never made it to LP. So how does a reissue label rectify this grievous oversight? With a bang! Real Gone Music and Wargod are proud to announce the first-ever legitimate release of the True Romance soundtrack on vinyl, housed inside a gatefold album jacket featuring commissioned, custom artwork by Rafał Wechterowicz. This artwork is exclusive to this album’s initial manufacturing run and will never be reprinted. What’s more, our release of True Romance comes in pillow feather white with blood red splatter vinyl limited to 2000 copies! Consider this our own homage to one of the greatest cult classic films of all time…don’t miss out on this limited edition.
