This is one of the more exciting press releases we’ve come across in a good while, as one of the very first AD posts was lamenting the lack of an official soundtrack for Cat Stevens’ Harold and Maude soundtrack. For vinyl enthusiasts, the wait is over — filmmaker Cameron Crowe’s new label, Vinyl Films, is going whole hog on this limited edition vinyl release (only 2500 copies). Details below.

“Over two years in the making, the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to Harold and Maude comes with an extensive 36-page full-color booklet filled with never-before-seen photographs and an oral history of the making of the film and the music, as told by the filmmakers and participants. Also included is a bonus 7” single with unreleased versions of “Don’t Be Shy” and “If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out”, two suitable-for-framing posters, and much more.”

  1. I just watched this movie about two months ago and collected all the songs on one cd.

  2. where can “don’t be shy” be downloaded?

  3. We were playing this in the background during our last Let’s Independent! show at Boardner’s and there was a great moment during sound check where everyone in Death To Anders spontaneously started playing “If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out.”

  4. Thanks for the post, it IS a great film. I’m ignorant. Tell me if Cat Stevens wrote the song. I only know Marissa Nadler’s cover. 🙂

  5. This is such fantastic news. Thank you sir.

  6. fucking already sold out.

  7. […] Aquarium Drunkard is raving about this. While Cat Stevens is more odious because of his “Kill Rushdie” utterances as an Islamic militant back in the late 80s (Is he still one? Who knows?) the vinyl in question is highly prized in some circles. Aquarium Drunkard reports the Cameron Crowe is responsible for this finally seeing the light of day…if you loved the movie, this might be worth a look in. It’s a limited edition–2500 copies according to the blog post. Collectors take note! […]
