Stunning collection of some of his best film work. Plus it's a stellar pressing!

An alternate title for this release could have been "Vangelis' Greatest Hits." In fact, the Japanese title on my Polydor K.K. pressing is "Blade Runner / The Very Best of Vangelis." It does tend to focus on the composer's soundtracks, though, as opposed to his other works.

At the time this album came out, it was the only official source for the music in Tracks 1 & 8 from the "real" Blade Runner soundtrack, and it also contained one more Blade Runner track (Track 11). That alone made it worth the price at the time. Now it's academic, but this remains today a great introduction to Vangelis' work.

Another note -- if you have this and enjoy Track 7, I recommend the entire "Antarctica" soundtrack album. Track 7 is an abridged version -- the original track on "Antarctica" runs 7 1/2 minutes. Not to mention a lot of other great music with it -- another Vangelis gem of an album.

Dammit, I've been admiring Vangelis' work for many years ("Albedo 0.39" is one that's somehow firmly stuck in memory thanks to listening to it over and over while less than sober) that now, reviewing and LISTENING to this compilation, it seems there's an apology overdue - both to myself and Vangelis: Why do I not actually OWN any of his albums?
For any anyone wishing to delve into this man's music, this is surely the perfect starting point (despite the track title mistakes).
