(April 7, 2014 – Los Angeles, CA) Aleph Records’ first ever vinyl score release will be BULLITT – composed by legendary composer Lalo Schifrin (Mission: Impossible, Rush Hour trilogy). The album will be released in conjunction with record store day on April 19, 2014. The album is a limited edition individually numbered vinyl release (1000 copies) and will feature newly commissioned liner notes by Jon Burlingame.
The 200-gram vinyl of the BULLITT soundtrack will feature both the record and movie version of the score – for the first time on vinyl. This limited edition also features score cues never before released on vinyl. Included in the album will be a digital download card of the album.
Soundtrack Magazine called BULLITT “…arguably the best jazz-based film score of the ’60s.” Allmusic.com says, “The end result is a soundtrack that succeeds both as a film score and a stand-alone album. This unique combination makes Bullitt one of the finest achievements in the Lalo Schifrin catalog and one of the best action film scores ever written.”
