Released one week later by Capitol Records, the album climbed to No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, just behind The Beatles’ Second Album (also released by Capitol), and Streisand’s rendition of “People” became an instant classic.

TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME (LIMITED EDITION CHERRY RED 2LP VINYL) (180GRAM)

$89.99 (AUD)

Fire Walk With Me is an altogether more brooding affair than the Twin Peaks series soundtrack. Badalamenti won a grammy for the title track of this LP and it’s not hard to see why- it’s dangerous, and bursting with smokey jazz thanks to Jimmy Scott.

BACK TO THE FUTURE III (2LP VINYL) (180GRAM)

$89.99 (AUD)

Back To The Future Part III is the sleeper of the trilogy soundtracks. Containing some of the best compositions of all of the three scores, the West inspired music brings to life some flourishes previously missing from the Trilogy: romantic, and truly cinematic, the Train sequence is Silvestri at his best.

BACK TO THE FUTURE II (2LP VINYL) (180GRAM)

$89.99 (AUD)

Continuing the tradition set by the original, the score for Back To The Future Part II is equally as exciting, and pulsepounding as the sprawling timelines bring Silvestri's music to the future, past and everywhere in-between... And timely, released just in time for the "Future Date" where Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to at the beginning of the film.

BACK TO THE FUTURE (2LP VINYL) (180GRAM)

$89.99 (AUD)

Regarded as one of the greatest Science Fiction films of all time, it also has a masterful score composed by Alan Silvestri that is triumphant, whimsical and adventurous.
