9/10 Ian Staff review, 25 April 2013
This is truly the greatest soundtrack ever created, the now legendary Vangelis-produced ‘Blade Runner’ OST has made a long awaited comeback to the world of vinyl and it is worth the wait. Interspersed with dialogue from the film itself which gives it an even more atmospheric quality, Greek composer/musician Vangelis pulled out all the stops here, after 1981’s ‘Chariots Of Fire’ which really cemented his name in Hollywood, the music on this soundtrack is perfect in its futuristic film noir ambience.
From the opening titles as we fly over a neon lit city to Rachel and Deckard’s sax soaked ‘Love Theme’ this is a beautiful and epic piece of music, after initial releases of the soundtrack being orchestral compositions by the New American Orchestra, fans were crying out for the superior Vangelis version and you can see why, featuring vocal contributions by Demis Roussos and said sax solo by Dick Morrissey and a production quality that would stand up by even today’s standards. Released by Audio Fidelity on transparent red vinyl this is a must own for movie music buffs everywhere!

We're not your normal record shop...
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.

Related artist data is provided by Spotify. Why?
- They are much, much better at writing clever algorithms than us.
- They have much, much more data to set their algorithms on.
We think this is a better option than stinking up your browsing experience here on Norman Records with a crummy implementation of our own. (We only wish we were this clever: Artist Explorer.)
Spotify generate recommendations based on the listening patterns of their massive audience, so they are generally pretty good. The data does throw up some odd combinations though. So, if you do spot anything daft have a little chuckle at their robots but please don't contact us about it. There is nowt we can do.
