Limited edition of 3000 copies.
La-La Land Records, Paramount Pictures and Universal Music Special Markets presents the world premiere official release of acclaimed composer Harold Faltermeyer's (FLETCH, TOP GUN, THE RUNNING MAN) original motion picture score to 1987's smash hit sequel BEVERLY HILLS COP II, starring Eddie Murphy, Judge Reinhold and John Ashton, and directed by Tony Scott. Building upon his sensational 1984 BEVERLY HILLS COP score, composer Faltermeyer develops his action/comedy synthscape in exciting directions, melding his iconic Axel Foley theme amongst new propulsive motifs and melodies and all the while boosting the film's slick visual approach taken by director Tony Scott. The original film score makes its world premiere with this deluxe presentation, which also includes bonus tracks -- and the original soundtrack release's most notable songs, featuring the hard-driving "Shakedown," performed by Bob Seger (written by Faltermeyer, Seger and Keith Forsey), the strip-pole-hugging "I Want Your Sex," performed by George Michael and more! Also here, the rare Faltermeyer track "Bad Guys," which expertly repurposes the film's villain theme as a song, with vocals by Keith Forsey. Produced by for La-La Land Records by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Doug Schwartz, this limited edition release of 3000 units includes exclusive, in-depth liner notes by writer Tim Greiving, with new interview quotes from Faltermeyer, and stylish art design by Goldwasser.
