From the NME

Sadly not the unheard electronic OST that Bowie created for the film with Paul Buckmaster (that is still in copyright limbo) but a reissue of the films OST which featured music created by Japanese prog-rock musician Stomu Yamash’ta and John Philips, who was the main songwriter for ‘60s pop band The Mamas And The Papas.

The 2CD version features Louis Armstrong’s song ‘Blueberry Hill’ as well as music by The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, The Kingston Trio, trumpeter Robert Farnon and John Phillips’ then-wife Genevieve Waite. Despite his appearance in the film, Bowie doesn’t contribute to the soundtrack itself.

A double-vinyl version features Yamash’ta and Phillips’ songs but omits the other music. A box-set features both the vinyl and CD with a reproduction of the original film poster plus a 48-page book featuring an essay by journalist Paolo Hewitt and an interview with the film’s editor, Graeme Clifford.

The CD is out on September 9, the same day the film is reissued in cinemas. The vinyl and box-set are out on October 24, the same day the film is reissued on DVD.
