I just rewatched the last 20 minutes of the this movie and found that the film score is non stop throughout and it’s phenomenal. I have the soundtrack CD and none of the music from this part of the movie is on there; the CD is mostly songs and barely any film score music. Does anyone know what the situation with the film score is and wether Sylvester Levay still has the original DAT master tapes for this movie? Again, the music is 110%.

Would love to see this get a release. I think the 3 tracks on the official record are edited album tracks as they are quite different from what appeared in the movie too. Make it a doublebil with Sylvester Levays Stone Cold as a "machodoublewhammy"

The track SKYLINE isn't even in the film.

Yes exactly, the track does not appear in the final cut of the film published for all public, but in the uncut version it was end-title track which was replaced by the song voice of america's sons by john cafferty!

Anyone know of any interviews that have been done with any of the musicians involved in the score? Amazing that it’s one of the best movie scores of the 80’s and there’s no documentation of any kind on it.

Levay talks a bit about it in my interview here:

Between additional tracks on the out of print 3 o’clock High, never released Airwolf scores and never released Cobra, Levay is totally under represented.

Amazing interview, but the song ‘Two into One’ is both in the movie during the night hotel scene, and also on the CD album.

Any chance you could contact Sylvester Levay and ask him about the DAT masters?

I might. He doesn't often reply to emails though

How many e-mails does he get and reply to on average?

Please give it a try, he doesn’t seem to reply on Facebook messenger.

Big chance that BSX records would release the full score of Cobra if Mr. Levay had all the DAT masters, it’s such an amazing score that has been neglected.

Let's say he replies to one of five emails.

Thanks, fingers crossed he has the DAT’s or some version of the recordings.

It's a good news that BSX would like to release Cobra. Has BSX already looked into whether the tapes were at Warner Bros or MGM?

It’s Warner, I’ve sent emails, no reply, they could possibly digitise their 24-track masters if they had them, like what happened on the Rocky IV re-master that Intrada put out on CD in 2010. That’s if they have the masters like the company that owns Rocky IV did. If anyone has a connection at Warner and can ask them about his, it would be good to find out, otherwise Mr. Levay may have the DAT’s.

It's still a Warner/CANNON GROUP production (golan globus production).
The Cannon Group/Golan Globus Production is owned by MGM.
Warner does not answer me either, but it would be necessary to ask MGM to see if it is not in their archives, or perhaps to ask Robin Garb who was the supervisor and musical producer of the film like for Rocky IV...

Thanks for this info, I didn’t know Robin was producer for both, that’s great news. He was in the Frank Stallone documentary from 2021. I can’t find any contact info for him on IMDbpro or Facebook. Do you have any leads?

In regards to MGM, Warner owns all Cannon movies that they distributed, you can see which ones on the Cannon Films Wiki page, they’re mostly movies from the 1980’s.

No unfortunately I don't have his contact.
Fingers crossed for Sylvester Levay...!
I think that when LA LA LAND RECORDS released the soundtrack of Tango & Cash in 2007 they couldn't find the tapes at WARNER BROS either and finally Harold Faltermeyer gave them a copy...if I'm not mistaken

Sadly, no response from Levay.
