Having just listened to the whole of the Trunk Records Wickerman soundtrack complete with aeroplanes motorboats and seagulls l must say that this recording is brilliant. Whoever put it together has captured the essence in sound of what the film is all about.
I also own the Later CD of the soundtrack which is undeniably a better 'recording' but lacks the feel and atmosphere of the Trunk Records version.
As I was cooking whilst listeneing I consigned the chard to the the boiling water at the penulitmate track. My meal had become a journey alongside that poor misguided Christian Copper who was never going to get back on that boat.

Let me just say, this is a fantastic soundtrack to accommodate a fantastic film.
Although Nicolas Cage tried his hardest to destroy everything Wicker Man, this soundtrack survived his wrath, mostly because you'll forget about dreadful 2006 version, and start to think of everything wonderful while this record plays in the background.
Corn Rigs, my personal favourite, couldn't be a better start to the A side. The lyrics really do take you back to the imagery that surrounds this mysterious story. The flutes are a treat too.
You know, I was originally planning to review every single track, but now looking back at how many there are, I could be here a while. So, I'll just list the ones that really stand out: Corn Rigs, Gently Johnny (people really love that one), The Tinker of Rye, Willow's Song, etc. Hell, they're all good.
As a conclusion, yes, this review is terrible, but trust me, the feeling of owning this record is sublime. Happy shopping.

This was, I believe, the first release of the wonderful soundtrack to this cult film - a film which it's own director described as being something of a "folk-horror musical." Unfortunately, in my opinion, this was a disappointing release because they clearly had no access to the original master recordings - so what's on this disc is literally just taken from the film's final mix, complete with sound effects and dialog. In other words, it's nothing you couldn't do yourself by sampling the film and burning the result to CD.
Happily, there have been better releases since this one, which - with a few exceptions, like "Willow's Song" for which the multi-tracks sadly could not be found - have been taken direct from the original masters, offering beautifully clean recordings of the music with much better sound quality than you'll find here. The Silva Screen release (cat. FILMCD330) gets my nod as it also includes all of the little incidental musical "stings" in addition to the score and songs.

Lovely release, sounds beautiful and clear. A classic soundtrack with unique artwork by Richey Beckett. Appears to be 180g, but I'm unsure as to whether it is virgin vinyl, doesn't look so to my eyes. Any fan of this cult film should snap this up quick before it disappears. I picked mine up at Greenwich Picturehouse where it was being sold alongside a showing of the 'final cut' of the film. I believe The Flood Gallery in Greenwich (who commissioned the artwork and who are selling special screen printed posters of this new artwork) will have a few copies left. Definitely track it down!

The latest issue 2010: The original Soundtrack Album THe Wicker Man. Music and songs by Paul Giovanni. Associate Music Director Gary Carpenter. Performed by Magnet. Gatefold 180 g. yellow/orange vinyl. Music On Vinyl (label) LC 07371. It is great illlustrated all way through, both inside the gatefold and as well at innersleeve.

I guess both releases has 9 tracks at side B?
Appearing like this B7: Searching for Rowan, B8: Appointment with the wicker man. 9B: Sunset
