Catalog Time Capsule: “The Rocky Horror Picture Show – Original Soundtrack” (1975)


Welcome to Throwback Thursdays, a monthly spotlight on a gem from The Orchard catalog that was released a long, long time ago.

Album: The Rocky Horror Picture Show – Original Soundtrack
Artist: Various Artists
Released: 1975
Genre: Soundtrack

There’s a chill in the air, a skeleton on the lawn, and a blood-drenched zombie gnawing on your shoe (don’t look). Halloween is nigh and our thoughts have turned to the freaky-fun soundtrack of the ultimate midnight movie, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Although the once-underground sci-fi horror-comedy film has been fully exhumed in recent years (with a 2010 “Glee” tribute episode and a 2016 Fox-TV reboot), we prefer the original, featuring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, and Meat Loaf. Let’s do the time warp again!

Since 2008, The Orchard has digitally distributed Ode Sounds & Visuals, the label of industry legend Lou Adler, who co-produced the 1975 film.
