Vangelis and Demis Roussos: Tales Of The Future


This music from the 1982 Blade Runner soundtrack, is probably the best thing Demis Roussos ever did. Or Vangelis for that matter. The original soundtrack release was delayed for over a decade despite the music being well-received by fans and critically acclaimed—nominated in 1983 for a BAFTA and Golden Globe as best original score. Also, there was the promise of a soundtrack album from Polydor Records in the film's end titles. The 1989 compilation themes included some tracks from the film, but it was not until 1992, with the release of Scott's Director's Cut, that the score saw an official release. Better late than never.
