“Man Has Made His Match… Now It’s His Problem !”
Adapted from Philip K. Dick’s novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’, Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner” iconic dystopian classic is unquestionably one of the greatest sci-fi films ever made. Although critically acclaimed on initial release, commercially the film never really proved popular with the cinema going public but by 1993 the film was gaining renewed interest, and soon there were plans for a worldwide re-release of the film. For the first time in 11 years the film was acknowledged by the media and film critics. The film’s story, performances, and artistic qualities were all re-examined, and this time the film was embraced by audiences around the world. With renewed interest in Blade Runner and a brand new worldwide release underway, the public’s unrelenting fascination for the music score persisted. So in 1994 Vangelis responded by making the time to revisit his original score. Vangelis remarked that in “Blade Runner’s” soundtrack it contained several short passages of music, which he considered inconceivable to separate from the visuals they supported. So instead he created an album which brought life to the poignant moments of the iconic film, and provided a seamless musical journey. Vangelis viewed this release as a personal album, and had approached it in a similar way to his solo albums. The album was entitled Blade Runner and was released in 1994. Using the John Alvin artwork from the original 1982 US one sheet release the totally original & unrestored the 1994 soundtrack poster offered here is in excellent, original rolled (as issued) condition. It displays and presents superbly with just very minor handling wear and represents a fine piece of investment grade movie & music memorabilia for one of the most influential film’s not just of the sci-fi genre but modern culture in general.
