"The Dunwich Horror" 1970 rare score from Les Baxter


Oh yes folks, this is a real gem I got here for ya. Les Baxter's phenomenal and highly imaginatively suited 1970 score to the film "The Dunwich Horror". This is one of my favorite old horror films as taking on an H.P. Lovecraft story doesn't get much better than this, especially for 1970. The film very ambitiously pulls off some effective, stellar stuff. The atmosphere, the alien eerieness of Dunwich, the relentless obsessions of the Necronomicon - all the yin to the yang of the innocent Sandra Dee. This superb score rounds it out and makes it all tight of course. Check out the film if you haven't seen it before/in a while. Then enjoy this score, after you download it from my hidden link to another plane of existence!
Re-upped October 24th!

This is one of my favorite soundtracks! Although a couple of the tracks repeat, this is a nice expanded score. I didn't even know that this bootleg version existed! Excellent!

Thanks big time for upping this! Very cool blog, btw...
