-La Land Records, Twentieth Century Fox and FOX Music present a re-issue of our previously sold-out 2-CD SET of the original motion picture score to the classic 1988 action blockbuster DIE HARD, starring Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman and Bonnie Bedelia, and directed by John McTiernan.  Renowned composer Michael Kamen (LETHAL WEAPON 1-4, ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THEIVES, THE LAST BOY SCOUT, DIE HARD 2-3) constructs an indelible musical template for the iconic, one-man-army of an everyman, John McClane, as he wages a skyscraper-encased war against a group of high-tech, heavily-armed thieves led by uber-villian Hans Gruber.  Kamen√ïs score masterfully builds suspense, propelling all the plot√ïs high-octane action while enriching the characterizations.  The DIE HARD experience is rounded out in this presentation with source cues and bonus tracks such as Vaughn Monroe√ïs √íLet It Snow√ì, Run DMC√ïs √íChristmas in Hollis,√ì John Scott√ïs √íWe√ïve Got Each Other√ì and more!  Produced by Nick Redman and Eric Lichtenfeld, restored by Mike Matessino and remastered by Daniel Hersch, this special 2-CD release features exclusive, in-depth liner notes by Eric Lichtenfeld and track-by-track analysis by film music writer Jeff Bond.  This is a limited edition re-issue of 2000 units.  Yippie-Kay-Yay!
