One of my favorite television shows growing up was the Dystopian Science Fiction classic Logan’s Run which aired from 1977-1978 and was spun off from the full length feature film released the prior year. The film starred Michael York, Jenny Agutter, and Farrah Fawcett that depicts a 23rd Century utopian society that beneath the surface kills everyone when they reach the age of 30. The story follows Logan 5, a “Sandman” who has been tasked with terminating those who have attempted to escape death (runners), and is now faced with termination himself as he approaches his 30th birthday.
The original motion picture soundtrack gets a new lease on life with a 2018 deluxe and definitive release via Waxworks Records. The score by famed composer Jerry Goldsmith (Alien, The Omen, Planet Of The Apes, The ‘Burbs) mixes electronic music and sound design by usage of early modular synthesizers with classic orchestral compositions to create a futuristic landscape. This new release marks the very first time the complete score by Goldsmith will be released on vinyl.
Features include all new artwork by Martin Ansin, double 180 Gram “Palm Flower” colored vinyl with two variants to choose from (Crystal Blue/Green and Yellow or Crystal Green and Red), and deluxe packaging
