Airwolf breaks record
10-Apr-2004 - The original Airwolf Themes soundtrack 2CD Special Limited Edition broke its own World Record as the "Most Expensive Television Soundtrack of all time" on 25 March, 2004.
A Washington-based seller achieved an unprecedented $765 for one 'Airwolf Themes' set on an eBay auction.
This breaks the previous record of $715.03 made nearly four years ago (18th March 2000) on eBay.
Only the movies 'Cherry 2000' ($1200), 'Moulin Rouge' ($999.99) and 'Blade Runner' ($820.10) have beaten it so far, but Airwolf is the only television series in the Top 10 all-time most expensive list at No.4.
The record has been re-submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records.
Some details of the project:
The 'Airwolf Themes' soundtrack project was created to high-light the much-loved episodic music for the high-flying 1980s television series about a state-of-the-art helicopter.
Only 1000 copies were produced.
Originally cost $55 - $60 per 2CD set.
5 years in the making
Contains 25 episodic tracks by Northern Ireland-based Airwolf SuperFan, Mark J.Cairns (and 'Terrahawks' publisher, Gerry R. Forrester) based on the 'Airwolf' TV series including 3 on a Special Bonus CD conducted by original Airwolf composer, Sylvester Levay with the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra.
20 page colour booklet included with World-exclusive interview with original Airwolf composer, Sylvester and a Foreword by Airwolf creator & Executive Producer, Donald P. Bellisario.
Has become one of the hottest and most collectible soundtracks on the internet with original sets regularly going for $350+ on eBay. The two auctions a week before the Record Breaker went for $375 and $466.
The long-awaited sequel CD 'Airwolf Themes: Volume 2' will be released in late 2006. Details from: Airwolfthemes.
