"Most of the music contained in this album originates from recordings I made in London in 1982, whilst working on the score for the film Blade Runner. Finding myself unable to release these recordings at the time, it is with great pleasure that I am able to do so now. Some of the pieces contained will be known to you from the Original Soundtrack of the film, whilst others are appearing here for the first time. Looking back to Ridley Scott's powerful and evocative pictures left me as stimulated as before, and made the recompiling of this music, today, an enjoyable experience." - Vangelis (Athens, April 1994)

Music from the Original Soundtrack. Recorded at Nemo Studios, London
Mastered at "44.1" Paris

        Without a doubt one of the greatest scores of all time.

          Best Vangelis album from the 1982 movie Blade Runner. Masterpiece.

            I'm frankly surprised Blade Runner hasn't had a huge double (or triple) LP box set with newly-commissioned exclusive custom artwork and half a dozen color variations including a "holographic tears in the rain" variant or some-such that sounds solid enough except for noise that seems strategically placed over your favorite parts and retails for 90 bucks but since it's limited to 300 units quickly goes for a grand-plus used.

            ...I'm not saying such a thing *should* exist, mind you, just that considering Blade Runner probably has the single most up-market target audience in all of mainstream popular culture I'm surprised it hasn't already happened.

              Was this not released when the movie came out? early 80s?

                Its amazing how well done some of the unofficial albums are done, its a shame the officials don't take note of this.

                      Thanks man! Kicking myself for not picking this up, it was on Amazon for weeks at about 30 bucks, went to buy it last month and it was 250! Hope they do a good job with the re-press.
