Vince DiCola Rocky IV (Original Motion Picture Score) on Limited Edition 180g LP
World vinyl premiere of the original score from the mega-hit fourth installment of wildly popular Rocky saga, starring Sylvester Stallone as the iconic boxer, with Talia Shire, Burt Young, Carl Weathers – and formidable Russian opponent Dolph Lundgren. The original 1985 album featured songs plus two excerpts from the score. Intrada's release offers the entire score by Vince DiCola, including his arrangement of the classic "Theme from Rocky" by Bill Conti. Unleashed at last is his rich score, initially for keyboards, ultimately for large orchestra.
Many highlights include the haunting piano/cello theme for "Apollo's Death and Funeral," the powerful "Up the Mountain" sequence, the dynamic "Training Montage," the powerhouse "War," and the epic "Knockout" for full orchestra. Intrada presents the score in a crisp, punchy stereo mixed directly from the original 24-track digital masters courtesy of Sony. Premium 180 gram vinyl and deluxe UV-coated, full-color gatefold jacket with artwork title on spine, enclosed in thick polywrap bag!
