DIE HARD 2: DIE HARDER – The Deluxe Edition
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Music Composed and Conducted by Michael Kamen

2 CD Set

We are thrilled to offer this 2-CD Deluxe Edition of one of Michael Kamen’s action masterpieces – Die Hard 2: Die Harder. We are on the cusp of beginning our 35th anniversary celebrations for 2013 but thought we’d get the party started early with this special release of a Kamen classic. A more-varied and free-handed score than the first Die Hard, Michael Kamen pulled out all the stops and went for it. He even threw in a fabulous ode to Sibelius by incorporating the thrilling Finlandia.

Bruce Willis returns as the heroic cop who battles not only terrorists, but also an incompetent airport police chief (Dennis Franz), the hard-headed commander (John Amos) of the Army's anti-terrorist squad and a deadly winter snowstorm. The runways are littered with death and destruction, and McClane is in a race against time. His wife (Bonnie Bedelia) is trapped on one of the planes circling overhead, which is desperately low on fuel. It's all-out war, a heart-stopping, jet-propelled journey filled with excitement and terror.

Snow will soon be falling over much of the world, which makes it the perfect time of year for Die Hard 2!

Fasten your seat belts!

Now that this gem has seen the light of day, I wonder how long it'll be before more 'unlikely' re-releases blow us out of the water...

Until then, I'll be playing this one. A lot!

Thank you Varèse!

This will not last for long just like DIE HARD. But will we see it re-released by another label once it does sell out?

 Posted:   Oct 22, 2012 - 1:53 AM   
 By:   Nicholas_DW   (Member)

I hope so. In a perfect world, there would be no limited editions and scores would all get complete releases. We're slowly moving closer to that with all the re-releases of late. Hopefully another label is able to pick it up once it goes out of stock.

It's possible when Die Hard 2 comes out that another label will release it. For now I'm getting it. I did an order through Movie Music since I all ready have an order with them for Witches Of Eastwick.
