It is with a heavy heart that we report the passing of one of Night of the Comet‘s soundtrack contributors, Skip Adams. Skip wrote and performed Troublefor the film, and co-wrote Strong Heartwith John Townsend.
Night of the Comet’s Music Producer, Don Perry, posted a heartwarming post on his blog in memory of Skip.
Our Memorabilia section continues to expand, with the most recent addition being the UK LP release for the Night of the Comet Soundtrack. Whereas MACOLA released the USA edition, The UK edition was released by CHORD.There doesn’t appear to be much information about CHORD online and Discogs only records a handful of releases, with the Night of the Comet Soundtrack being release 006. Discogs indicated a 1984 release date, however, the label date on our aquired edition shows a 1985 release date.
Last year we brought you news that Jed Shepherd from Post/Pop Records was planning a re-release of the Night of the Comet soundtrack on Vinyl and Cassette. Jed is a huge fan of NotC and as a result wants to make the re-release the best it can be. To that end, he’s started a Kickstarter campaign with various backer incentives to give this soundtrack the release it deserves.
The release date is set for 26 August 2016 and incentives include, the re-release on vinyl with gatefold cover and red ‘splattered’ vinyl, a standard cassette release, a special Kickstarter backer only cassette release and a very limited edition T-shirt featuring the album artwork by Omar Hauksson.
The Kickstarter Campaign is only running until Saturday 26 March (due to the long lead times creating vinyl) so spread the word and get backing what is sure to become a collector’s item.
Happy birthday to Thom Pace. Thom was responsible for three of Night of the Comet’s soundtrack songs; I’ll Take the Blame (written and performed), Virgin in Love (Written and perfomed) and King County Woman (written).
Up until 2014, Virgin in Love was the only track available to fans, however, following discussions with the film’s music producer, Don Perry, and the discovery of some master tapes, all three tracks can now be enjoyed.
Another version of I’ll Take the Blame is available directly from Thom Pace on his CD Slices of the past and Future, available from his eBay page.
Happy birthday to Night of the Comet Music Producer Don Perry.
Don recently provided fans with a number of previously unreleased songs from the Night of the Comet soundtrack and with the help of fan René Neferuaten they are now available for your aural pleasure on René’s YouTube page.
