Rick Wakeman, keyboardist and recent inductee into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Yes, has launched a pre-sale campaign on PledgeMusic for a very special limited edition Deluxe Box Set of his soundtrack Crimes of Passion.
Originally released in 1984, Crimes of Passion was directed by Ken Russell and starred Kathleen Turner, Anthony Perkins, John Laughlin and Annie Potts. The film explores themes of human relationships and mental illness, with a mix of sex and suspense.
“Working with Ken Russell was not only a highlight in my musical life but also a great learning time for me as well," Wakeman says. "Ken truly understood film and film music like no other. He knew what he wanted, but after telling you then expected you to take his ideas to another level."
There will only be 250 of this deluxe edition manufactured, set Set for release June 2. Each will contain a signed and numbered certificate. There will also be additional signed items and exclusive experiences as part of this pre-order campaign.
The set will include a CD, a DVD/BluRay, a signed numbered certificate, lobby cards, a reproduced Japanese press kit, a poster and a reproduced press release.
