“You talking to me? Well I’m the only one here.”
Bernard Herrmann’s chilling score for Martin Scorsese’s iconic 1976 classic Taxi Driver is finally getting the long overdue deluxe treatment thanks to the lovely people at Waxwork Records.
2016 is the 40th anniversary of the movie, and Waxwork are celebrating in lavish style with a luxurious double vinyl pressing of the expanded version of the score, which has never before been released on wax.
A CD version appeared back in 1998, boasting 18 tracks to the original’s 10, adding ‘Diary of a Taxi Driver’ (complete with the unforgettable Robert De Niro voiceover) and extensive liner notes. While the original version of the soundtrack was already reissued by Music On Vinyl in 2012, this feels like the definitive edition.
You can hear a snippet below, and marvel at the gorgeous black, yellow and white vinyl.
