The wait is officially over! A few months back we gave you guys the awesome news that One Way Static Records were set to release the original The Last House On The Left (1972) soundtrack on Vinyl, Cassette Tape, CD and Digital Download, and today it is officially available for pre-order!
I have been hunting for this soundtrack for years, but to no avail, so this is definitely something I’ll be pre-ordering, and I’m sure many of you will too.
Sadly, David Hess passed away nearly two years ago, but he will never be forgotten, and I think this is a fitting tribute to honor his work as the talented musician he truly was. Such a legend.
So, read on for all the details below.
As per their official Facebook page:
You can now pre-order ‘THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT’ (Original 1972 Motion Picture Soundtrack by David Hess).
