Both CDs ordered!

No more autographed copies of BHCI though.

You will get BHCII for $14.98 (normally $19.98) if you order it together with BHCI.

Shipping $16.50. Total $51.46 then. Not too bad.

Thank You La La Land! Have a great Christmas!

Got home from work and finally able to listen to the samples for both scores - can't help it, but they bring a smile to my face. Been wanting these releases for so long - thanks again to LLL and everyone involved, mucho appreciated! Hopefully Faltermeyer's scores for Fletch will come forth in 2017 smile

Just noticed Nasty Girl by Vanity 6 has been left off.

And there's a discrepancy in the description:

TOTAL ALBUM TIME: 63:10
*contains “Axel F (Theme From Beverly Hills Cop)”
§ contains material not used in film

Album Time: 72:09

This is very unprofessional, I'm incredibly disappointed and will now never buy anything from LLL ever again.


Really? A text error on an INTERNET POST is going to drive you away from every buying something EVER AGAIN from a record label? Good lord man. (Clearly the 72:09 was from BHC II and got duplicated when copy/pasting)

Pretty sure he was kidding.

The samples sound wonderful. Looking forward to playing it loud in the car.

Contractually they had to be released separately. Originally it was a two disc set, but due to artist deals beyond anyone's control each soundtrack had to be their own separate release...and this took several years to happen.

You're welcome. smile

Thanks for the 411. I had a feeling this was the case.

Is the version of "Shakedown" the same as the original soundtrack or the one on the 7" vinyl that more closely resembles the film version?


It's probably the same version as the original soundtrack but I might be wrong about that.
Anyway, I believe the film version is an edited version of the 7" vinyl.


You know what's funny, I have seen several YouTube videos with fan edits that splice the opening guitar riff from the film into the album version of the rest of the song which claim it's the "7" Film Mix", but having bought every 7" variant of Shakedown I could find on discogs trying to track down this version, I'm pretty convinced at this point that it was never released on a 7" single at all. I'm not sure why people used that description on YouTube, but it's certainly not on any 7" I've ever heard (they've all been the normal album version). My best guess is that the film version was actually an alternate mix done during the formative / demo stages of the song and then it was reworked for the final album.

I had a confirmation on both of these scores at around 12:04PM PST, so I'm REALLY hoping for a signed copy. They said the first 200 or so would be signed.

Looking forward to some JAWS vs JAWS 2 type debates when these start to circulate.

COP I is consistently more bouncy and sprightly even when some dark things are happening in the movie. COP II is a slicker and more cynical movie with a bigger budget and gets a more robust score with the kicker of that great villain theme. It reminds me of the difference between HALLOWEEN and HALLOWEEN II. Sometimes I like the sparser world of the first one, sometimes I want to turn the knob up.

^ That is a great analogy!

I definitely noticed an Escape from New York influence in BHC 2, especially in the jewelry heist scene. I'd say part 2 is a little bit more "beefy" and slightly darker.

Speaking of Jaws 1&2, now that we have the complete scores, I love throwing them both in a playlist and hitting shuffle. I shall do the same with these.

I also think BHCII has some elements of Running Man, it's clearly written around the same time. Snippets of Captain Freedom's Workout shows up from time to time, among other things.

Glad to finally hear some one else talk about this! Haha I thought I was crazy and so did my friends when I swore Shakedown in the film sounded different than the album version. The female singing in the background sounds louder for one thing. I'm willing to bet it was probably just the way they mixed the track for the movie that made it sound different.

Well, it's absolutely inarguable that the intro is different (and, IMO, much better) in the film.

Yes that part is but I don't recall the rest of the song sounding like a completely alternate track. The sample of the track sounds great from LLL's website. The sample did sound a little different than the album version I have but that could simply just be from them remastering the sound. Come on shipping Gods let our soundtracks come soon! Lol

No, it's really just the intro.

Side note - you know, I've probably watched BHCII over a hundred times (it's my favorite of the films), and I swear, I have NEVER noticed how AWFUL the audio edit is on that song as Axel grabs his gun. I will NEVER not hear that going forward! lol

Great now neither will I lol. I never noticed it before but this is one of those times you don't want the track exactly as it appears in the film. I saw Bob Seger live at the United Center about two years back now and though the show was amazing I was hoping against all logic he would play this song and he didn't. Oh well.

True...though I DO really prefer that guitar intro. SO good.

It almost sounds like that was done after the track was finished. If you listen closely it sounds different from the rest of the song.
