Here’s my A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge soundtrack. I posted this on Instagram for the August Vinyl Challenge. Here’s what I wrote:
Day 14: Title Starting With ‘A’: A Nightmare On Elm Street 2 – Freddy’s Revenge, music by Christopher Young. Released 1986, Varese Sarabande.
I bought this record on Discogs from a woman in Italy. It was just dumb luck finding it. It took forever to ship though, holy crap. But it was worth the wait. It’s in amazing condition too. I’d rate the wax at NM-. And the sleeve is in excellent condition as well. This record is just overall awesome. I mean, just look at it!
I’ve written about this film extensively over the years. I’ll have to find my film review and put it up here. It’s one of the more interesting stories from the series and has Freddy at his most evil, in my opinion. This would be the last time Freddy was truly dark and evil and before everything went goofy with catchphrases. Even his voice in this one is dark. There are so many things going on in this film just under the surface and a few that hit you over the head with a baseball bat.
The score itself is fantastic. It’s dark and brooding and everything you’d expect from a Freddy film. The only thing missing from this album is the song, “Touch Me (All Night Long) by Wish & Fonda Rae, from the scene where the main character, Jesse, is dancing in his room.
Anyway, finds like this are why I collect vinyl. This is one of my more prized records.
