In 1983, when Blade Runner was storming the theaters around the globe, the only way to listen to the film score was from unofficial bootlegs and some classic orchestra adaptations recorded from the New American Orchestra.
Eventually, the film score was officially released in 1994 along with previously unreleased material, whereas in 2007 a triple CD re-issue was launched, in view of the movie's 25th anniversary. The re-issue contained the authentic film score, some previously unreleased material and new compositions from Vangelis, inspired by the movie.
