Well, this will be my first triple dip...Varese 1, Varese 2 and now this. I must have the word "Sucker" branded on my forehead. I know, no one's making me buy it. A film score fan and his money are soon parted.....

I noticed a couple of similarities between this film and "Blue Thunder". Both have a cop as a lead character named Murphy. They both use thermographic technology to see through walls and employ recording technology to playback conversations to help expose government or corporate corruption. And both films have Mario Machado as a newsman.

I am really tempted to draw the line with this one. That is, in turns of buying something for yet another time. It's just not that big of a deal to me.

I guess I am a sucker too. I have the other two copies of Robocop. Barry or Poledouris and I am going to take the plunge. Good thing I am not a die hard Goldsmith fan. I would really be broke.

I think "Care Package" on the Intrada disc is a combination of "Care Package" and "Target Practice." Don't know about "Force Shoots Robo."


I think "Force Shoots Robo" is the same as "Betrayal" from the Varese CD.

I dunno about this...double-dipping is one thing, but triple-dipping is another. And for what...like two minutes' worth of extra music and an end title suite which is just a cut & paste job from other parts of the score? Maybe I'll trade for it later on or something, but this is a less-than-essential purchase at this time.

To HADES with ROBOCOP! There are more important things to contemplate... and purchase....

I just played the first Varese cd release of this title. It sounds just fine to me. Very clear and exciting. Reminded me of how much I miss Basil's stuff. For those that don't already have this score, I say buy this new edition.

More like 13-15 minutes of added music, depending on which older version you compare to. The second one out added only a tiny amount, out of sequence, and that made for a weak finish so I preferred the first edition. This, however, trumps all and is a must-buy!

The more I listen to the samples the more excited I am getting to receive this. I only have the LP, so I figured it was OK to double dip here. I also went ahead and treated myself and picked up Brian May's Return To Eden. So this will be a fun week once they arrive.

Wearing my tightie whities, just the way you like them of course!

As betenoir mentioned above, I compared this new Intrada edition with the two Varese releases listed on SoundtrackCollector.com - the Intrada edition runs roughly 15 minutes longer than the two Varese discs.

cool. "The Dream" and "Rock Shop" are some of personal favorite cues from the man

Ordered.

Be interesting to see the official track chronology - I think I was pretty close on this one.

Conan soon, I hope.

I'll stick with the Varese release. For now.

Not owning any of the previous releases I'll definitely pick this one up. But I'm going to wait for La La to do some more releasing wink

INTRADA Announces:

Spot the error. smile

(Reportedly Howard Blake thought this was beneath him. Hello? The guy scored Flash Gordon!)

I am very happy with this "ultimate" RoboCop edition by Intrada.
One of my favourite scores from my one of my top favourite composers smile
Let's Hope RoboCop 3 will be given the same treatment.

Still, did anyone also noticed that the first Varèse issue featured two different takes for the same piece of music ?
Track 11 (mislabelled as Robo Drives To Jones' Office) presents the cue as we can hear it in the 2004 Varèse reissue retitled 'Care Package', with some wrong notes from the strings at approx. 0'40.
Then we hear the same piece of music later, on track 14 (Robo Tips His Hat - always loved this tracktitle), but the strings are right this time.
