Conan The Barbarian Suite

Conan The Barbarian Suite
Music by Basil Poledouris

Considered by many to be the single best movie soundtrack ever composed for a motion picture, the late, great Basil Poledouris pulled out all the stops for Dino DeLaurentis's Conan.

The Anvil of Crom theme leaps out at you while the Riddle of Steel theme keeps us guessing about what's yet to come. The action sequences are literally gut wrenching while the swirling of the string sections are surreal in all the romantic places. If you have never listened to this music, you'll be swept away by it. Of course, if you've been a fan since the movie was released as I am, then this Movie Suite will fill the bill. Next time, we'll revisit Mr. Poledouris as we return with the sequel. -MJ
