I couldn't help notice... the little symbols:

@ (approximate symbol) = contains Axel F
' (approximate symbol) = contains material not used in film

Aren't these the wrong way round? It's the tracks marked ' (of which there are many) which contain Axel F.

It's "toothgate" all over again! Does nobody check these things?


Question for LLL about the calling out of tracks that contain the "Axel F" theme...

Was this a contractual obligation (perhaps because the music was released as a single?) or did you guys just add that on your own? Just curious.

I wanted to ask, was the option of adding the Keta Bill song from Playboy mansion scene available?
It's the only thing remaining that's unreleased (in good quality that is)

If it was contractual, they maybe made a big boo-boo by mis-labelling it!

Just received and listening to Part 1...thrilled to hear this soundtrack apart from the movie, after all these years.

I must, however, correct an error in Dan Goldwasser's liner notes. He states that the only Faltermeyer material to be released outside of the film was "Axel F" and "Shoot Out." However, like "Shootout," "The Discovery" was also released as a B-side. I believe this 45rpm version of "The Discovery" is Track 21 ("theme suite") on the CD. I have 45s with both "Shoot Out" and "The Discovery" in my personal collection.

There was also an extended version of "Axel F" released on various 12" and 7"s. IIRC, I have it as a B-side on a 12". Can't recall which pop song was the A-side.

Well, I'm disappointed that La La Land still hasn't managed to mail out my copies of BHC.

Looks like I will not receive this before next year.

Anyone else's copies still lying around in the LLL offices?


Yes Me too!!!

I got mine today. It's still listed as "ships in 2-3 days" on the order site though. I guess LLL need to sort out their update system, to avoid confusion.

My disc has been playing non-stop for two weeks now. Can not get enough.

Also, anyone have any idea why the track entitled "Shootout" accompanies a scene with no shootout?

Listened through both discs once. I have to say that Cop II is a more varied score than Cop I. Cop I is Axel F repeated endlessly, plus Shootout and Discovery, and not really anything else. But of course, great to have it on disc finally. Cop II has a little more meat on the bone.

I wonder why the booklet to Cop II is only 12 pages, while Cop I is 24? Also a couple of written mistakes here and there, I guess things went a little fast this fall.

All in all, I love these discs, and looking forward to more Harold from La La Land.

What a welcome release !
I know I maybe in the minority to say that but I think his magnum opus from the eighties is TOP GUN.

I don't think you're in the minority. Top Gun is a much loved score by many.

At first I too felt like it was "Axel F the Album," but after programming it chronologically (see above) I realized the Axel F theme almost completely disappears after the track "Discovery" and the rest of the score functions without it.

I came to think of it, I dont think I have seen one post from a "hater" in this thread. You know, the purists who can't stand electronic scores and use every opportunity to tell others about it, and who think La La Land are a bunch of dicks who release scores like BHC and not an old lost "Golden Age" score from the 1940s.

Has the FSM forum changed for the better lately??

Oh, we are still dicks, but for many other reasons.

I actually prefer the first score over the sequel. I find it's a far more coherent listen, especially if you mix it up with the songs. I find the John Carpenter President at the Train esque pieces of BHC 2 quite at odds with the original Axel F, Discovery, Shootout material from the first film.

I wonder why Faltermeyer left out out the intro bass drone and rising pad from the CD-mix.

Part one or two?


The intro to part 2.

I would have preferred the film-mix:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nllSQP4ADk
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MK_lE3-8SCY (first minute)


That's very disappointing. The missing bass drone in the opening and Shakedown not being the film version make this release a very easy pass for me. It's a shame such a highly anticipated release is bungled. I suppose it's too much to hope La La Land fixes these issues and reissues the disc?

What? Sure a missing part of a cue might be annoying, but you'd pass on an entire score just because of a few missing seconds? This is missing mixing bowls behavior on steriods.

Just as silly as keeping an entire CD because 45 seconds are missing on the new one...

But not nearly as silly as refusing to buy a CD because of the type of packing it's housed in

We have to remember that irony is not permitted on the FSM board.

Technically it was sarcasm. It's the only other language I know beside American English.
