Missed the movie (and the soundtrack) in mid-80's when I was busy working and raising kids. Found this perusing affordable soundtracks, scanned the reviews which prompted me to listen to 30-second excerpts - had to have it. I think some of the best music for years has been composed for film. This recording is among the best; a consensus of positive reviews on Amazon always gets my attention. Thank you to all who bother to write. I'll add my recommendation to the mix.
