Quartet Records and Studiocanal present a 2-LP set featuring the premiere vinyl release of Jerry Goldsmith’s Academy Award® nominated noir score for Paul Verhoeven’s classic erotic thriller BASIC INSTINCT (1992), starring Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone.

For his second collaboration with director Paul Verhoeven (after TOTAL RECALL) Jerry Goldsmith composed one of his most famous and iconic scores—atmospheric and sensual, elegantly orchestrated, with a memorable main theme reminiscent of Bernard Herrmann.

At the time of the film’s release, Varèse Sarabande issued a 45-minute CD produced by Goldsmith himself—a great presentation of the score’s highlights. This new vinyl release presents the full 70+ minute score, with correct edits and original cue titles presented in film order, and “An Unending Story” as heard in the film. The music was recorded in London with Jerry Goldsmith conducting The National Philharmonic Orchestra.

Produced by Neil S. Bulk and Bruce Botnick, and specially remastered for vinyl from the original digital tapes by Mr. Botnick with lacquers mastered by Bernie Grundman, this premiere LP edition has been pressed in an exclusive 180 gramblood-red vinyl, strictly limited to 500 units. Presented in a gatefold jacket, it includes a separate 6-page insert featuring authoritative liner notes from film music writer Daniel Schweiger.
