elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time.

John Carpenter - Halloween Original Soundtrack & 20th Anniversary Edition (1978)

John Carpenter - Halloween Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (1978)

Update October 28th, 2010: This is an update to my original post from 2008 for John Carpenter's Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for Halloween. Below you will find both the original soundtrack released on vinyl in 1978, as well as the 20th Anniversary Edition released in 1998. The 20th Anniversary Edition is in 320kbps MP3, while the original is only 128kbps. I have searched all over for a higher quality version of the original soundtrack, but apparently it is much rarer than I imagined. If anyone has the original soundtrack in a higher bitrate and is willing to share, please drop a link in the comment section. I would greatly appreciate the gesture, and I'm sure the readers would also.

Ha! I was wondering when this one would get posted. All I have is the 20th anniversary edition. Everyone seems to think this one is better though.

Was looking for this tonight! Thanks much!

I'm looking for the original version (NOT the 20th Anniversary Edition) in 320kbps MP3 or higher.

@Allywonderland: I tend to agree with the opinion that the original soundtrack is better than the 20th Anniversary Edition. The 20th Anniversary Edition contains a lot of dialogue, which can be great in some instances; however it is very distracting in this case. The original soundtrack stands on its own as one of the greatest horror scores of all time, so in my opinion they should have included the original score first, followed by bonus tracks with dialogue and previously unreleased music.
