New Archive release: Nostalgia bundle


When the second season soundtrack finally saw the light of day back in '07, there were two glaring omissions (in my opinion). The music from Annie & Cooper's dance, "Annie And Cooper" (episode 27), and the organ version of the Twin Peaks theme that plays when Norma's mother confesses to being MT Wentz (episode 17). At the time, the rumor was a third soundtrack was in the works, so I figured that these two biggies were being held for that 3rd release. It was frustrating when that didn't happen. But now, thanks to the Twin Peaks Archive from davidlynch.com, both songs have been released!

Monday, the "Nostalgia bundle" was released featuring the MT Wentz version, entitled "Twin Peaks (Solo Rhodes)" in its full-length glory. Not only that, but we also get the "Nostalgia Version" featured in episode 18 when Ben watches his childhood home-movies. This version, like the televised version, features a short segment of harp & guitar that then fades into the "Rhodes" version. We also get the short harp & guitar segment on its own in its original (faster) version. This original faster version was used for Nadine's suicide attempt in episode 7. It was slowed down when used for Ben's scene.

Amazing release. My artwork for the Rhodes & Nostalgia versions are here.
