Not sure if another one of these have been made, but yea the LLL release is pretty awesome. The songs sound better than ever and quite honestly I had never paid close attention to the score till now and I'm glad I did! They really did a great job on this. Fav tracks are as followed -
Last of An Ancient Bread, Nowhere to Run, In The City, Baseball Furies Chase/The Fight.
How about you guys? And I love the quotes being left on the original Album Presentation.
I haven't seen the movie since I was a kid and remember very little of it, but the soundtrack was a great listen and sounds awesome. Will have to revisit the movie for ole time's sake.
Oh man you've got something to look forward to. Find the original theatrical cut if possible and not the ridiculous "Ultimate Director's Edition" that came out a few years ago (and is, sadly, the only way to see this on Blu now).
The filmmaking on display here is nothing short of bravura. Walter Hill was working at the height of his creative powers and the result is a film that is at once of its time and of no time. It's a frenzied, stylized action piece with cool to burn. They truly don't make them like this anymore.
I've got the LLL release on the way to me soon and can't wait to give it a first (and second and third and fourth) spin.
My favorite score released so far this year. I just love all the unreleased cues not heard in he film. In the City is such a cool track too. Man, I miss scores (and movies) like this.
Burk, I agree with your comment about missing scores and movies like this. I have always loved The Warriors ever since I first watched it on TV. The opening music is just so 'cool', it's hard not to like. I recently received LaLa's new release and have listened to it quite a few times. I only wish DeVorzon's score was used more in the movie. The songs are good but the score is better!
Anybody know if the score tracks on the A&M soundtrack album ("Theme from The Warrors", "The Fight" and"Baseball Furies Chase") is a different mix than the same tracks from the original motion picture score also included on the LLLR album?
