Bernard Hermann‘s beautiful and atmospheric score to Martin Scorcese’s classic 1976 film Taxi Driver is being issued on limited edition yellow vinyl in March.
In the film (written by Paul Schrader) Robert De Niro memorably plays Travis Bickle, the frustrated Vietnam veteran, who takes a job as a taxi driver to battle his insomnia.
Taxi Driver would be the composer’s last film soundtrack. The music (comprised primarily of a brass section mixing with a saxophone theme) effortlessly incorporates key elements of dialogue from the film (“all the animals come out at night” etc.)
Taxi Driver is available via Music On Vinyl as a limited edition of 2.500 numbered copies on yellow vinyl, with just 600 allocated for the UK. It will be released on 8 March 2019. You can pre-order via the SDE shop using this link or the button below.
