Donald Rubinstein’s score for the George A. Romero film Knightriders is getting a vinyl release from Scare Flair
The 1981 film Knightriders (watch it HERE) isn’t a horror film, but comes from one of our all-time greatest genre film directors (and my personal favorite of the bunch), George A. Romero. It’s a brilliant, emotional dramatic film that also features some really cool extended motorcycle stunt sequences… and I’m glad to hear that the folks at Scare Flair Records are giving the score composed by Donald Rubinstein a vinyl release.
The vinyl is now available to order through ScareFlair.com. The site notes that the records are already in hand and will begin shipping out almost immediately.
Here’s some information on the Knightriders score vinyl release: This release comes with the complete score on X2LP inside a gatefold jacket, 11×11 Program of Events insert, exclusive liner notes by Composer Donald Rubinstein, classic artwork by Boris Vallejo, new artwork by Ghoulish Gary Pullin, and features some very early guitar work from jazz legend Bill Frisell.
There will be two variants available:
“Fighting the Dragon” Handpours which have the Red and Black & Orange and Yellow discs on 180g vinyl – $40
“Brother Blue” Transparent Blue on 150g vinyl and limited to 50 units only – limit one per household – $40
Images of the release can be seen at the bottom of this article.
Written and directed by Romero, Knightriders has the following synopsis: Billy is the undisputed leader of a roving band of hardened bikers who support themselves by jousting at medieval fairs and selling their intricately designed wares. As their fearsome reputation and popularity grow, commercial pressures begin tearing the tightly knit group apart. Despite Billy’s attempts to maintain his noble and chivalrous vision, his star performer entertains outside offers, while his arch-rival, Morgan, prepares for a final battle.
The film stars Ed Harris, John Amplas, Gary Lahti, Tom Savini, Amy Ingersoll, Patricia Tallman, Brother Blue, Ken Foree, Scott Reiniger, Martin Ferrero, Warner Shook, Randy Kovitz, Michael P. Moran, Harold Wayne Jones, Albert Amerson, Christine Forrest, Donald Rubinstein, Stephen King, Bingo O’Malley, Greg Besnak, and Gary Davis.
