While the plans for a sequel are something we're certainly wary of, there's no doubt that Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" continues to fascinate. Recently, studio notes on the film from displeased producers hit the web, providing yet another insight into the production, while a possible tie-in to "Prometheus" suggests the mythology may grown even further. But one of the most enduring elements of the sci-fi classic is Vangelis' beautifully synth-ed out score, and it's getting a fresh pressing for all you wax enthusiasts.

The official Vangelis score for "Blade Runner" is getting a fresh, gatefold sleeve, 180 gram red vinyl pressing and as fans know, at one time this wasn't easy to get a hold of. In fact, while the score was earned BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, it took nearly a decade to get an official release, though (more comprehensive) bootlegs widely circulated. But in 2007, a 3-disc set finally appeased collectors, but for those looking for something sexier than CDs, this will do pretty damn nicely.

Audio Fidelity will release the set, which Amazon says will drop on April 16th. Tracklisting below as well as a preview of the artwork. [Exclaim!]
