In a career full of classics, Bernard Herrmann’s score for Taxi Driver remains one of the composer’s most recognizable and haunting ever written. Now, for the 40th anniversary of the movie’s release, the music behind Travis Bickle’s descent into the depths of New York nightlife is getting a proper treatment.

The first-ever vinyl pressing for Herrmann’s final score has just been released by Waxwork Records, a remastering that’s presented in its complete form, alongside brand new art from Rich Kelly and liner notes by director Martin Scorsese.

The double LP set comes in two variants — one in yellow and the other in a tri-color black, white, and yellow. The gatefold features more art from Kelly, including the bloody aftermath of Travis’ apartment building assault.

The remastered score is now available over at Waxwork Records, but you can listen to sample tracks below.
