ROBOCOP Vinyl Soundtrack by Basil Poledouris (1987)

Varese Sarabande release of Basil Poledouris’ original score to the 1987 sci-fi actioner Robocop.

Info: 1987 USA 12″ 33rpm pressing.

The late Basil Poledouris’s score to Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 Robocop is dark in tone and filled with a mixture of fast orchestral action and quiet, lamenting emotional themes. Like many of Poledouris’ scores, this is a soundtrack that has lasted the test of time and can be listened to now as easily as it was more than two decades ago when it was composed. It is a score that works beautifully in the movie and as a stand alone album.
