Format: Audio CD
Back in 1976 a young unknown called Sylvester Stallone shocked the world with his phenomenal and ground-breaking sports film Rocky, which detailed a similarly unknown boxer's shot at the Heavyweight Championship Of The World, but in spite of the film's other assets, it was nothing without the outstanding soundtrack of Bill Conti, with classic tunes such as "Gonna Fly Now". Throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s the Rocky series grew and grew, gaining the praise of many fans and critics, and Bill Conti was the man behind the soundtracks of the first two sequels. However, in 1985 Stallone made Rocky IV, the defining film in the series where Rocky must travel to Russia to defeat a fearsome opponent (played by Dolph Lundgren in a breakthrough role), and for the first time Conti was not the man behind the music. This time it was Vince DiCola with the tunes, and he was responsible for what must be the most inspirational music, let alone movie soundtrack, of all time. What you have on this CD is a testament to the spirit of man, with rocking 80s classics such as Robert Tepper's "No Easy Way Out" and James Brown's "Living In America" paving the way for Survivor's legendary "Eye Of The Tiger" and Vince DiCola's own masterpiece "Training Montage", before the track which is beyond all reasonable doubt the most inspirational tune of all time - John Cafferty's "Hearts On Fire". If ever you need pieces of music to help you in physical training or to help you re-instill your faith in human spirit and strength, this is it. You are missing out if you do not experience this.

im a great fan of the rocky films and decided a while ago to purchase the soundtrack to number 4. but every where i went, it was either out of stock or way out of my price range. so i looked on amazon, got it real cheap and one word sums it up - WOW!
Every track is brilliant and will take you back to fighting ivan drago! Survivor songs are just breath taking and each song is how i remember the film. i have many soundtracks but this is top of the list!

I had this album on cassette as a child and after watching the film recently I was reminded what a cracking soundtrack this is.
There's no easy way out is the obvious highlight for me, a song which has at times moved me to tears during my more fragile periods.
Burning Heart is notable for it's lyrical genius and Vince DiCola does a great job on the incidental pieces in place of Bill Conti.
If anyone has recently lost someone close, is struggling with the rigours of life or is training for a boxing match, they should find great comfort and inspiration from this remarkable collection of tracks.

Format: Audio CD
As a huge fan of Rocky this is my favourite of all the Rocky Soundtracks as this features some great songs by Survivor, James Brown, Robert Tepper, John Cafferty to name but a few.

Soundtrack includes,

1)Burning Heart:Survivor.
2)Heart's On Fire:John Cafferty.
3)Double or Nothing:Kenny Loggins & Gladys Knight.
4)Eye Of The Tiger:Survivor.
5)War, Fanfare from Rocky:Vince Dicola.
6)Living In America:James Brown.
7)No Easy Way Out:Robert Tepper
8)One Way Street:Go West.
9)The Sweetest Victory:Touch.
10)Training Montage:Vince DiCola
11)Man Against The World (Hidden track) Survivor.

The songs are uplifting & adds great heart & emotion to the movie as Rocky trains hard & overcomes near impossible odds as he fights against his toughest opponent yet.

My only niggle is "War" isnt quite the same arrangement as used in the film's boxing climax but otherwise it's excellent.

A brilliant soundtrack to do a workout at the gym to.

A great soundtrack to a great movie.

This collection will take you back!! The cold war, USA v USSR, The Italian Stallion, Rocky Balboa v The Siberian Express Ivan Drago!

I'm quite a big fan of the Rocky movies and the music that accompanied them. No one can deny the almost inspirational Theme tune (not in this compilation) or the great songs by Survivor and Vince DiCola.

I can say, hand on heart that I have listened to this CD more times than I can remember and I still love it! Its also the one CD that most of my mates look to borrow when the see it on the CD rack.

If you liked the Rocky movies then I suggest you invest in this little gem.

A great soundtrack with the highlight being Eye of the tiger, a classic hit of all time. To complement this, other tracks to listen to our another by Survivir- 'Burning Heart' and also a hit from the Godfather of Soul- James Brown with 'Living in America'.
Altogether a great compliation with plenty of music to get you pumped up!

Format: Audio CD
Hearts on Fire and No easy way out combine with the training montage music herein to make this a very favourable experience. The songs are perfectly attuned to the pictures they accompany; luridly colourful, punchy,muscular...bombastic is a good word, sneezy and grumpy. The vocals by Robert Tepper and John Cafferty im sure were very much felt and meant at the time of the recording,and that comes across. Some of the lunatic speed keyboard intermissions are humourous to the point of being profound, these songs have gravitas and are bursting with a very intense and desperate machismo somewhat lost with the passing of the eighties.

The smoochy songs on this disc are really rubbish.

This c.d is great for training ,driving or just having fun to.

I hope you dont pull something.
