Theres alot of info that surrounds the Friday the 13th scores. I
see people all the time looking for the scores for all the films which, in reality, is not possible. "Why?' do you ask?. Well here's the simple
Harry Manfredini was hired to write an original score for Friday
the 13th but the music was later reused for the next 3 films. Like this:
Friday the 13th - Original score
Friday the 13th Part 2 - Reused score, no original music
Friday the 13th Part 3 - Reused score, new original main title.
Friday the 13th Part 4 - Reused score, no original music
Friday the 13th Part 5 - New original score
Friday the 13th Part 6 - New original score
Friday the 13th Part 7 - Half score reused from the previous films, the second have new muisc by Fred Mollin.
Friday the 13th Part 8 - New original score by Fred Mollin
And there you go. Now on to the score. A few years back, Manfredini stated he would like to release a 2cd compilation set of his music for the Friday the 13th films. Sadly though he said all the original masters were damaged from time and he would have to reperform them on hi ssynth. To this day he still plans on doing it but not anytime soon.
Luckly, a bootleg floated to the surfice for Jason Lives. Someone who had a dat copy of the score transfered it to cd. This is a very rare score since the masters are long gone now. If your a big fan of Friday the 13th and horror scores, I suggest you grab this little gem.
