Here’s another cool collectible from one of my favorite stores in the East Village, The Turntable Lab.
I love this television show. One of these days I will own the Blu-ray series of Twin Peaks.
One of the greatest scores ever recorded is finally back in print for the first time in 25 years!
Death Waltz Recordings went all out with this beautiful pressing of the original Twin Peaks Soundtrack giving it the super-deluxe reissue treatment featuring 180 gram “Damn Fine Coffee” vinyl, 425gsm die-cut sleeve with spot varnish text, lyric sheet + liner notes from the composer Angelo Badalamenti, top-loading obi strip, and David Lynch-approved artwork by Sam Smith.
I’m glad that after 25 years, Death Waltz Recording Company has re-released the original soundtrack for Twin Peaks for a new audience to enjoy. This is my defining work as a composer and I’m happy it will get a fresh listen” – Angelo Badalamenti, 2016.
His genius is compelling. David Lynch, The Art Life a documentary about the acclaimed director’s childhood up through his early films, is making its debut this weekend at the Venice Film Festival.
What an incredible conversation that recently took place between Patti Smith and David Lynch. They are two artists I admire and love hearing converse about each other’s art in this BBC Arts Video.
The Twin Peaks blog post which features this recent “revelation of two incredible minds” is insightful in its scope and purpose . I am indebted to this Twin Peaks blog site for the content it has as a Twin Peaks fan. My thanks for pointing out that Patti and David’s interlude takes place inside Guillermo Kuitca‘s Les Habitants, a living room inspired by David Lynch’s recreation of one of his own paintings over at Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain, where both artists have exhibited.
The BBC does not want the video clip distributed so please look at the Twin Peaks Web link below (for the next 29 days) to view how Patti Smith and David Lynch coalesce in the conviction of their artistic vision which they create on behalf of the people.
