LP soundtrack and VHS converter specialist company Terror Vision is releasing an OFFICIAL soundtrack from the national treasure program THAT IS Unsolved Mysteries.

Upon learning this, I had to take a minute to get my shit together so I could help spread the wonderful gospel…

Yes, friends and fans of the nightmare-inducing late 80’s and 90’s weekly program full of ghosts, murders, and tales of good ole’ Nessie. Ryan Graveface (of Graveface Records) has made all of our horror soundtracks dreams come true with never before released tracks from the show! In collaboration with UM creator John Cosgrove, Graveface has put together an LP that any die-hard fan will treasure for years to come. Complete with five (5) Unsolved Mysteries theme songs/closing credits, ghost-related cue music and missing/wanted scores! It’s important to note this soundtrack has NEVER had a release before in any format. And now, we not only get to relive the soundtrack and themes that were, and still are, the stuff of pure nightmares, but a special bundle including a kick-ass tee shirt and enamel pin are being offered as well with an Unsolved LP single!

Per the site from Ryan Graveface:

Immediately after “inking the deal” with John Cosgrove (Unsolved Mysteries creator), I was sent several hundred DAT tapes of all the music for the show. So from February until a few weeks ago I would spend several hours a day making sense of everything. The single LP version features my personal favorite songs from the ghost related segments of Unsolved Mysteries whereas this triple LP set contains EVERYTHING written for the ghost segments. This version is very very limited as it’s really just meant for diehard fans.

The UNSOLVED MYSTERIES GHOSTS / HAUNTINGS / THE UNEXPLAINED 3XLP VERSION:

Triple LP version featuring 5 UM theme songs/closing credits, 120 (!!) ghost related cues and the missing/wanted music.

  • First time the score has been available on any format!
  • Audio pulled from original tapes / remastered
  • Triple Gatefold Stoughton packaging / 3 full-color inner sleeves
  • Liner notes from creator John Cosgrove, composer Gary Malkin & Ryan Graveface (me!)

180 Gram Colored Wax

[Video] When Matthew McConaughey Made His Shirtless Debut on ‘Unsolved Mysteries’

Chances are if you’re over 30, you damn well know Unsolved Mysteries was the greatest and most terrifying thing you saw on prime-time TV. The weekly program about unexplained phenomena, strange murders, and sometimes featuring a beautifully grainy image of Bigfoot, did a fantastic job of making me think escaped murderers were lurking in my backyard late at night.

I fondly remember being the ripe ole age of five, when my stunning Nan (Grandmother) introduced me to that horrifying theme song followed by Robert Stack and his haunting tales of true terror and persuasive speculation on mysterious legends. We had just sat down in the living area after becoming near comatose after a heavy meal of pasta and meatballs. My dear sweet Nana ruled her house with a wooden spoon, usually dripping with tomato sauce. Even if it was against our will, we were going to sit down, shut the hell up, and witness the glorious splendor of Sir Stack grace that obnoxiously humongous floor television set. Although some of the programming most certainly gave me the skeevies at a young age and resulted in a few sleepless nights, over time it became one of my go-to series’ as a kid and into young adulthood.

Thank you Robert Stack for the countless night terrors.

So now that you know about thine fondness for the Stack and the eerie show, I really couldn’t be more excited that the show is now FINALLY able to stream on Amazon for Prime members. So it goes without saying, I haven’t had much of a social life since the Stack episodes hit streaming. Given the program’s absence from streaming sites as long as these services have been available, watching Unsolved Mysteries now is like watching it for the first time. Minus a few fuzzy memories here and there when certain memorable clips arise from episodes. The music will send shivers down your spine, and the stunning reenactments paired with an abundance of ’80s mullet will give all the warm fuzzy feelers.

While I must confess the acting wasn’t always that stellar, did you know that a certain Oscar-winning actor made his screen debut on the series? The righteous Matthew McConaughey stepped on-screen for the first time in 1992 on the creepy crime program.

Alright, alright, alriiiiiiight.

McConaughey appeared as a murder victim in season five, episode twelve of the series portraying 26-year-old Larry Dickens- who was brutally murdered in front of his mother’s home back in 1978.
