Varèse Sarabande, through its Varèse Vinyl online store, is releasing for the first time on heavyweight 180 gram black vinyl the soundtrack to the classic 1968 science fiction film Barbarella. The album includes the legendary song 'Barbarella' with a vocal by The Glitterhouse, as well as the song 'An Angel Is Love' with a vocal by Bob Crewe, The score was composed by Charles Fox...

Limited to 500 copies the vinyl reissue of the soundtrack for Barbarella is very much a product of its time. It screams '60s kitsch soundtrack, with its Jazz based tracks. Unless you're of a certain age (this release celebrates the movie's 50th Anniversary) it's doubtful that you'll get much out of this other than novelty value.

This is one release that's more for serious soundtrack collectors who fondly remember the movie.
