For our 587th Soundtrack of the Week we listened to this remastered release of the 1980 Dark Star soundtrack album, music by John Carpenter.

There's not a ton of music on it but what there is is great. If more synth soundtracks were as good as Carpenter's are...

This is also that rare release that doesn't bother me by including dialogue and sound effects from the movie. If you've seen Dark Star a dozen times or so, you can listen to this record almost as an adaptation for radio of the movie.

Also included are a 7" (red vinyl) with the great country song (music by Carpenter) "Benson, Arizona" and Martin Segundo's epic elevator bossa "When Twilight Falls on NGC 891".
