But despite the listing at the end of the credits, the soundtrack album was not released in the United States. It was released in the UK, but promptly became an item of unbelievable rarity, to the point where nearly every Highlander fan believes it to be a myth. I came within inches of finding it once, at a vinyl shop in England, but it was sold a day or two before I got there.
Most of the music, in one form or another, has been released in different albums--one or two instrumental packs for the movies, Queen's A Kind of Magic--but never the original stuff, not all together.
You see where I'm going with this, don't you? :P
Someone on Amazon has it. It's print on demand, and it comes in a measly cardboard sleeve; and I know everyone is rightly pissed at Amazon just now. But if, like me, you have been searching for a quarter of a century (or more)...there it is. I can even accept the inclusion of one track from the TV series (there should have been only one!).
The CD ripped to my computer just fine. And for the first time, I got to listen to all that beauty without interruption.
(...Now what do I look for?)
