Manos - The Soundtrack of Fate

I'm sure some of you are aware of the project to get Manos: The Hands of Fate restored in high definition for an eventual Blu-ray release. It looks to be coming along nicely judging by the screenshots on the site. Looks quite a bit like a real movie when it's all cleaned up.

I'm a big Mystery Science Theater fan, but the fan favorite episode featuring Manos is an episode I personally can't really get into because I actually find the movie physically painful to watch. Plus a good 15% of the riffing is just the guys being so dumbfounded by the movie that they just end up saying "Manos...the hands of fate."

That said I'm glad this restoration is happening, I think every movie, no matter how utterly, mind-numbingly awful it might be deserves to be preserved.

The reason I'm talking about this now and not a year ago when this restoration thing began? While checking out the site just now I noticed that back in January they put the entire soundtrack up for free, ready to download at the click of a couple of buttons. It's on Bandcamp, but it is free, you can enter $0.00 as an amount and still download it.
