  • about this album

    In 2001, 22 years after the original release of Apocalypse Now, Miramax Films presented a new version of the groundbreaking masterpiece with Apocalypse Now Redux, accompanied by a revised and re-mastered soundtrack on Nonesuch.

    Apocalypse Now Redux contains 53 minutes of never-before-seen footage including a new scene with Marlon Brando, an expanded Playboy Playmates sequence, and the French Plantation scene, newly assembled from raw footage. Vittorio Storaro's Oscar-winning cinematography and Walter Murch's Oscar-winning sound are enhanced by a Technicolor dye transfer print and 6-channel soundtrack.

    "This version of the film is sexier, funnier, more bizarre, more romantic, and more politically intriguing," Francis Ford Coppola says. "The new version doesn't say anything differently than the old one. It just says it better and with more complexity and the themes emerge more clearly. It is a richer, fuller and more textured film experience that lets audiences feel the immediacy, the insanity, the exhilaration, the horror, the sensuousness and the moral dilemma of America's most surreal and nightmarish war."

    The new soundtrack—available for the first time on a single CD—includes music from the original release, fully re-mastered, plus two new tracks. In addition to the score by Carmine Coppola, artists featured are The Doors (“The End”), Mickey Hart, The Rhythm Devils (“Suzie Q”), and the George Solti/Vienna Opera Orchestra version of Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries.”
