Here is what Mondo had to say about this release over on their BLOG. We are pleased to present the official online release of our next vinyl soundtrack: Music for 2001: A Space Odyssey – The Original Score by Alex North, previously released at MondoCon in Austin, TX.
Stanley Kubrick’s seminal masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey is as known for its classical musical cues as it is for it’s vivid imagery. What few people know is that the cues that are now forever associated with the film were a last minute revision on the part of Kubrick. There is an original score, composed for the film by the late Alex North that was abandoned during post-produciton. North did not know of the abandonment of the score until after he saw the film’s premiere screening.
Working with North’s estate, we’re excited to release this lost original score on vinyl for the first time ever, in a deluxe package, complete with liner notes by Jon Burlingame. The package, designed by Jay Shaw, features a glossy Monolithic black, tip-on gatefold, with a holographic foil Interior gatefold, housed in a custom clear plastic slip case.
Mondo is also releasing a very special “Space Foil” 2 XLP soundtrack for Gravity.
