Bernard Hermann - Taxi Driver Soundtrack
Bernard Herrmann’s iconic score to the Martin Scorsese’s classic vigilante thriller Taxi Driver is to get a gorgeous double vinyl reissue courtesy of Waxwork Records.
Marking 40 years since its original release in 1976, Taxi Driver was Herrmann’s final score before his death the previous December, ending a career that had seen him soundtrack some of the most iconic films in modern cinema, including Psycho and Citizen Kane.
As teased on Waxwork’s Twitter feed, this edition looks to be the first ever vinyl release of the score’s 1998 CD reissue, which includes an expanded version of the score, liner notes by Martin Scorsese and an epic version of ‘Diary of a Taxi Driver’, which features Robert De Niro’s voice-over taken directly from the film. This is the first time the “complete”, expanded versionis available on vinyl.
Unplayed mint in luscious marbled "yellow cab" vinyl.
