Basil Poledouris: Conan The Barbarian Original Soundtrack



FLAC file from a cd I picked up for $1 at the local thrift shop!

Nothing like listening to the 'Anvil of Crom!" Reportedly scored with 20 French horns! This is the best of the 'sword and sorcery' genre of movies from the 80s. Sounds just a bombastic, loud, and impressive even after all these years and is quintessential John Milius!

Between the time
when the oceans drank Atlantis,
and the rise of the sons of Aryas,
there was an age undreamed of.
And onto this, Conan,
destined to wear the jeweled crown
of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow.
It is I, his chronicler,
who alone can tell thee of his saga.
Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!
