PETER THOMAS SOUND ORCHESTER ~ The Big Boss (OST) (Ascension Records)

Very limited edition of 500, with two individually numbered 12" exclusive prints in an edition of 500. Officially licenced release, this will not be reprinted and is selling extremely quickly! Released only in Australia on vinyl and available exclusively through the label & Blank Records.
 
The Big Boss (aka The Fists of Fury) was the film which started Bruce Lee’s international career. Director Lo Wei’s movie premiered in Hong Kong in 1971, but its international success didn’t begin until 1973.
 The German distributor Cinerama tried to subtly adapt the film to western visual habits. This was done mainly through an altered soundtrack.  It was supposed that the original score of Chinese composer Wang Fu-Ling would sound far too oriental for Europeans. 
That was the moment when Peter Thomas came into play. He had been commissioned to conceive the new soundtrack. As a result, his music can be heard in the film worldwide with the exception of China.  So Thomas’ soundtrack virtually became the original score of The Big Boss.
 Previously the only available soundtrack for this movie since it’s original cinematic release has only been Wang Fu-Ling’s. Now 37 years later, the Peter Thomas score is released on LP for the very first time!
