Competition: Win ‘The Long Good Friday OST’ on Remastered 180 gm Vinyl


Original Soundtrack Recording

By Francis Monkman

Released 27th May 2016

Single LP on 180g Black Vinyl

Newly Remastered in Stereo

Francis Monkman’s dazzlingly crafted score to one of the truly great British gangster thrillers appears in stereo on vinyl for the first time, newly remastered for this release.

After graduating from the Royal Academy of Music the accomplished composer and multi-instrumentalist formed Curved Air in 1970, one of the defining British progressive rock bands.

In 1979 he joined the ‘super session-men group’ Sky, a line-up of outstanding musicians that included John Williams on guitar, Herbie Flowers on bass, Tristan Fry on drums and Kevin Peek on guitar.

The first two albums from this virtuoso stellar line-up delivered a number nine and number one album respectively.

These musicians remained an important element for this soundtrack, all bar John Williams featuring on the December 1979 recording sessions.

The result is timelessly cool, with a theme that still graces DJ decks today.
