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.
