Waxwork Records is thrilled to announce the film score debut of Léon: The Professional on deluxe vinyl. The 1994 action-crime-thriller film directed by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Lucy) stars Jean Reno, Gary Oldman, and features the motion picture debut of Natalie Portman. In the film, Léon (Reno), a professional hitman, reluctantly takes in 12-year-old Mathilda (Portman), after her family is murdered by corrupt Drug Enforcement Administration agent, Norman Stansfield (Oldman). Léon and Mathilda form an unusual relationship, as she becomes his protégée and learns the hitman's trade.

Waxwork Records’ new double-LP release marks the very first time the film score by composer Éric Serra has been released on vinyl. Combining both electronic and orchestral cues, Serra creates a score that is tense, yet beautiful, which compliments the film’s action sequences and the childhood innocence of Mathilda.

In keeping with Waxwork Records’ tireless efforts to create the highest quality soundtrack and film score releases on vinyl, the audio for Léon: The Professional was sourced from the original master tapes and then re-mastered for vinyl by producer and former White Zombie guitarist, J. Yuenger. The packaging includes 180 gram colored vinyl, heavyweight old-style tip on jackets with soft-touch coating, and new artwork by Oliver Barrett.

Léon: The Professional is available in two variants:

2 x LP 180 Gram “Gunmetal” with Black Splatter Vinyl
or
2 x LP 180 Gram “Upper East Side Splatter” Tan with Black Splatter Colored Vinyl

Complete Score On Vinyl For The First Time Ever

Heavyweight Old-Style Tip-On Gatefold Jacket with Soft Touch Coating

Sourced From The Original Masters

Artwork By Oliver Barrett

I've been listening to this score a lot lately after watching the UHD on the weekend... but only a lossy m4a rip of my CD. Wish I knew about this beforehand! :)
Oh, and that gatefold cover looks glorious!
