Love this soundtrack, but if it ever sees a reissue, change the cover art! A gatefold jacket would also be nice! I have the soundtrack to A Clockwork Orange, which I’m also a fan of, so maybe a jacket similar to that?

That this classic OST has had no official properly remastered CD re-issue is criminal!

It's a shame this doesn't include Al Bowlly and Ray Noble's performance of "Midnight, The Stars and You" my opinion, the best piece of music in the movie.

Music Identity can be defined in a scientific or technical level, like, as they say, "an identity function, which is a permutation or transformation of a pitch or pitch class set into itself". But there's another level of Music Identity which applies to the Music taste. You can draw a parallel in the Cinema domain, or any other discipline if you want. In other words, what emerged from your personal Culture, fruit of what you learned, experienced, lived. At this point, very few Movie Soundtracks can match Stanley Kubrik's 'The Shining', specially for the presence of the Avant-Garde 20th Century composers György Ligeti, Wendy Carlos & Krzysztof Penderecki. A collection of timeless musical treasures that shine as high as the movie itself.

Can't believe this hasn't been given a proper rerelease in all these years!
