Check Out Matt Taylor's Art for Mondo's 'Wrath of Khan' Vinyl Release
Beyond the darkness… beyond the human evolution… is Khan. Mondo has unveiled the artwork for their upcoming vinyl pressing of the original score for Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, released in 1982, directed by Nicholas Meyer. This classic sci-fi sequel from the 80s has a wonderful score from James Horner, some of his early work, and this special edition re-release is remastered. It's also "the extended score, featuring cues rarely released for home listening, and it's spread out across two gorgeous LPs." The art for the cover and insert was designed by Matt Taylor, and it's gorgeous, seriously. I almost want to buy this just for the art, it's that good. Images below and info on the vinyl from Birth.Movies.Death. Khaaann!!!
That image above is my favorite piece of art from this set. Below - the imagery for the insert for the vinyl:
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan's Mondo vinyl will go on sale starting January 13th. The original score by composer James Horner, who was killed in a plane crash last year, has been remastered by James Plotkin and will be released on 2xLP featuring a grand total of 23 tracks. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was first released in June 1982, starring William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, Walter Koenig, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, and Ricardo Montalban as Khan. The film earned cult status after becoming the sixth highest-grossing film of 1982, and gained even more popularity after Khan re-appeared in Star Trek Into Darkness. This is must have if you're a big James Horner fan or love this particular score.
