The End

10945790_gal.jpg These are two remarkable Disco remakes of John Carpenter‘s original soundtrack for Assault On Precinct 13

Although they were not the work of the master (but of Ralf Henning, a composer specialised in the adaptation of successful OSTs to the dancefloor), the two versions in preview were first released under Carpenter’s own name in 1982.

The Splash Band – The End (Disco Version) (1984)

The Splash Band – The End (Sound Version) (1984)

John Carpenter – Assault On Precinct 13 Main theme

Afrika Bambaataa & Family – Bambaataa’s Theme (Assault On Precinct 13)
(Listen to the full track)
