DRACULA has always been my favorite score by Williams.  So many great themes and orchestrations ... and certainly in a fertile period of his career, on the heels of STAR WARS, SUPERMAN and THE EMPIRE

Safe to say I think this score's indeed been lost and will never, ever get a re-release. Certainly not from Varese. That'd be ridiculous.

Let's hope it's finally time for an expanded Dracula... I'm sure Matessino looked up in every corner of studio vaults and opened every box, so perhaps his hunt was fruitful.

I was serious, make a WAV of your mint vinyl, anyone, I will restore it.


I did several restorations for Miguel, I'm not a profesionnal, but my restorations are pretty good I think.

To be honest, the Dracula OST is too repetitive. It's like the same fucking theme over and over again.

Oh it is not true if you are listening the complete score with the movie!

I've heard and seen many things to let me believe the recordings and sheets were lost to time, but under recent study I've seen that they aren't I've seen sheets and since the movie was put into blue-ray I believe they would've used master tapes to bring the audio to quality standards. I have also heard varsee is planning a new release. Does anyone have any knowledge of this or when it may become available?


It seems Richard Strauss was right all along! :)

According to LLL's MV Gerhard, only mono tapes from the original sessions were found so far and they don't even sound very good.


Too bad he didn't even bother to listen to these "mono" tapes...
