The soundtrack to James Cameron's iconic 1984 action/sci-fi hit The Terminator has long been out-of-print. On April 8, Milan Records will release the remastered reissue of Brad Fiedel's score as part of the Nicolas Winding Refn Presents series.

The soundtrack was remastered from the original tapes and sequenced for the first time in the order Fiedel originally intended. It's a double LP on 180-gram red/blue splattered vinyl. Find some packaging shots below.

"I am very happy that I had the opportunity to be involved in this release of The Terminator score," Fiedel said in a statement. "It's exciting to finally put out a version of the soundtrack that is in sync with my original vision of how the score should sound.”

The Terminator OST:
01 Main Title
02 Terminator Arrival / Reese Chased / Sarah on Motorbike
03 Terminator Gets Guns / Search for Sarah
04 Reese Dreams of Future War
05 Sarah Watches News / Enters Tech Noir
06 Matt & Ginger Killed / Sarah Calls Detectives
07 Reese & Sarah in Garage
08 Arm & Eye Surgery
09 “I’ll Be Back” / Police Station & Escape
10 Future Flashback
11 “Fuck You Asshole”
12 Love Scene
13 Tunnel Chase
14 Death By Fire / Terminator Gets Up
15 Factory Chase
16 End Credits: Final Suite
17 The Terminator Theme (Extended Version)

Vinyl. FFS.

Any chance Milan will issue a CD of this? If it's an improvement over the supposedly "definite" (sic) edition (and the sample sure sounds great!) then I'm in!

Glorious, glorious score!

Nice. That is the film version of the pre-title crawl + main title, meaning we're getting something other than a new version of the improperly mixed Edel version. All I need to know now is if and when it will be on cd!

Wow! This is great news and right out of left field.
Sounds wonderful!

It may even - finally - have the correct "Police Station & Escape" mix!
I'm very excited about this!

Ohhhhh, MAN! So awesome.
One of my top 5 scores of all time.

And yeah, judging by the main title, these are the 1984 film mixes Fiedel did in his studio garage.

I love these recent vinyl score reissues with unique art! Robocop, Aliens, Phantasm, they're all so great.

What ever happened to Mondo's Alien vinyl? frown

This may be the only soundtrack with a track titled "F--k You, A--hole". smile

I remember people throwing a fit recently when they thought Milan was only re-releasing a vinyl version of RoboCop, yet news of a CD soon followed.



"F--k You, A--hole". smile

Same to you, pal! I wonder how many Arnold movies featured that line. I can think of three offhand.

Dear all,

Yes The Terminator reissue will come out on CD and digital on the same day.
CD will have a similar presentation to Robocop with a simple digipack.

But the musical content will be the same as the vinyl. Brad Fiedel spent a lot of time working on this presentation. He went back to the original material to rebuild an album he feels would be a strong listening experience.

I hope you will enjoy it

best

Magnificent news! Thanks Milan!!!

Incidentally, is it safe to assume that "Reese's Death / Terminator Sits Up / You're Terminated" have now been wrapped into "Factory Chase" to make a nice 6 minute track?

2016 already shaping up as another outstanding year for film scores.
Thanks Milan.

to be fair i think this is just a re-issue of the same music heard on the DEFINITIVE just presented different

the tracks seem to be like those that appeared on the DEFINITIVE save for the fact they might have been combined - THERE MIGHT BE SOME FEW new music but overall.... wink

CD. I will purchase this at full price if it's on CD.

As opposed to what? Half-price?

It's the same music but, I suspect, the mix (possibly even the takes) have been completely revamped to more closely match Fiedel's vision (which may or may not relate to what is actually in the film). The "definite" (sic) edition is noticeably "off" in more than a few places.

This appears to be an entirely new presentation of the score.

Sure. I just didn't want to come off like a cheapskate. This is a release I so want to have, but I don't do Vinyl.
