Being a student of composing for film and tv, I was looking forward to hearing Bernard Herrmann's unadulterated, original music for the great film Taxi Driver. Unfortunately the original release on CD from Arista consists of 10 tracks, the first 5 of which are pointless jazz funk workouts of Hermann's themes by session musos, arranged by Dave Blume. Track 6 is a collage of Travis Bickle soundbites over a pasted together backing track. It's not until you get to track 7 that the original music is heard, conducted by Herrmann. This is the real thing - exquisitely composed and orchestrated, this is film music of the highest calibre, but the total minutes of this actual soundtrack material add up to 9.55! Do yourself a favour and make sure you buy this product brand new. It's only the newer version which has the track listing illustrated on this product page.

Bernard Herrmann is a brilliant composer. This album contains haunting but also enchanting music. maybe you can still like the music even though you don't like the movie. But the packaging is another thing. the cover is not the same with the one that showed on this page. rubbish, it's not a movie poster, no writings. just a photo of de niro holding a gun, and it's not even a high resolution one. rubbish cover, splendid music

This last masterpiece from the master of Hitchcock's film musics is a must-have. Since the very beginning of the movie Taxi Driver, it makes it way inside your brain and keeps stuck into it forever. Buy it if you saw the movie once, memories will surface.

The music and remastering are both great.
However, the CD package you get is rubbish.
The insert is a single sheet with a couple of colour photos and no information.
It's what you'd expect for a bargain bin reissue.

Great music which stands up beautifully without the movie. Listening makes you realise how much of the power of the film comes from this score. The sonics of the CD are far superior to the sound of the score on DVD. There are all kinds of details which jump out that I never noticed in my many viewings of the film.

Just ignore the jazz funk stuff which follows the OST.
