At last! All-important cue underscoring first appearance of Robocop - with dynamic first statement of main theme, right down to clanking metal - makes it to CD! ROBOCOP has hit the market twice before, but both releases inexplicably deleted important cue plus subsequent variants as Robo first goes into action with hostage crisis. Paul Verhoeven sci-fi/actioner with Peter Weller inspires Basil Poledouris to create powerful music: otherworldly for creation of Robo, emotional for Robo's memories, riveting for explosive action set-pieces. Intrada also presents first-ever assembly of complete end credits on CD, as well as restoring cues to proper chronological order. Advertisement sequences (trademarks in numerous Verhoeven films) are scored by Poledouris and included in sequence as they comment on scenes outgoing or incoming. Intrada presents complete score in vibrant stereo, newly re-mixed and re-mastered from recently-discovered original 2" 24-track session masters plus 1" 8-track electronic session mixes, all stored in mint condition, courtesy MGM. Informative liner notes from Jeff Bond complete exciting package.
