LH & BIA half speed mastered vinyl
Mark’s debut film soundtrack for Local Hero and Dire Straits’ record-breaking Brothers In Arms are out today on half-speed mastered vinyl. Both albums have been remastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios, and are pressed on 180gsm black vinyl.
Originally released in 1983, the Local Hero soundtrack went on to be nominated for the BAFTA award for Best Score for a Film in 1984. The album’s signature theme tune Going Home is played before every home game of Mark’s home team, Newcastle United FC.
