mov – cut from digital source ?


The album reissue is cool but the press pack is much more impressive

Paul am i not right in thinking that Waxwork records released the definitive double lp of this
soundtrack about 2 years ago using the original score in triple coloured vinyl?
What is the difference ? Is this more original ? Thanks

andrew R

I still don’t quite understand, is this version what you would have heard in the cinema in 1976 ? or as seems to be suggested re recorded at some later date ? Or is the waxwork version the original music from the film ,or is it the version Herrman wanted to use but couldn’t. You say both are essential would you (could you) see a real difference when listening ? Thanks in advance Paul

You can also easily get a CD version of the Taxi Driver soundtrack that includes both the original music, as heard in the film, and the inferior jazzy cover versions that were released as the soundtrack. All that and no surface noise.


Ha! Original TD press pack – how cool! I remember going to see the film in London (probably with you?) and it blew my mind. Funnily enough, when I first moved to LA, I wrote a lot of press notes for studios – the format hasn’t really changed – credits, notes, bios. (But sadly you don’t get the photos now…).

Thanks again Paul, much appreciated – I love Taxi Driver, some great stuff there!

So is there no inlay with the new vinyl? Thought it might contain some new writing.

And did we ever get to the bottom of whether this new release is the original / authentic tracks? (Must admit, I got confused by the comments on the other thread.)

Out of curiosity, Paul, if you’re a self-described ‘purist’, where do you stand on remixes like those produced for The Beatles’ anniversary sets or the ‘Steven Wilson Remixes’ from Jethro Tull? Would be interesting to hear your take
